A surprise package arrived at my doorstep recently filled with a bunch of goodies from Mychelle Dermaceuticals that are launching in March here in Canada at Murale stores and online at Beauty Boutique. A HUGE THANK YOU to Maggie / MyChelle Dermaceuticals for this lovely surprise!
I was not expecting this package, so I was super excited to find that it was filled with SPF based products, and a new C serum!
As I’ve said before, I have sensitive skin, I’m fairly pale, I burn easily and barely tan, so SPF is essential for me! But because I have sensitive skin, I can’t just use any sunscreen, as a lot of them irritate my skin – even the ones formulated for babies!
Today I’ll be reviewing two of the products – the Daily Defense Cream SPF 17, and the Sun Shield Clear Stick SPF 50.
Daily Defense Cream SPF 17: $32 CAD
Daily Defense Cream combines all-day, moisture-quenching hydration and nourishing bioactives, including Astaxanthin, with Zinc Oxide to protect against free radicals and help prevent premature aging in one, easy step.
This is a great light, non-greasy moisturizer. It doesn’t have a white cast like a lot of physical sunscreens. It even works well with makeup and it doesn’t make my skin feel greasy.

Sun Shield Clear Stick SPF 50: $16.50 CAD
Sun Shield Clear Stick SPF 50 is a mineral-based, water-resistant sunscreen that glides on smoothly and dries clear to deliver powerful UVA and UVB full-spectrum protection. Zinc Oxide provides a safe alternative to harsh chemical sunscreens. The addition of Avocado, Jojoba, and Vitamin E Oils help moisturize and protect, and Cocoa Seed Butter soothes skin and supports elasticity. Perfect for on the go.
This is going to be a staple in my bag – for when I forget to wear sunscreen, or for touch ups. It is super smooth and applies clear instead of with that dreaded white cast that most physical sunscreens have. The fact that it is water resistant is also a plus!
