MyChelle Dermaceuticals Canadian Spring Launches Part 2

Hello, hello!

mychelle-2

In Tuesday’s blog post (Part 1), I told you all about the 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!

In the fall I had tested and reviewed a bunch of their skincare (and loved it) when they first launched into the Canadian market (reviews are here and here).

Today I have another two sun protection products to review – the Sun Shield SPF28, and the Replenishing Solar Defense SPF30.

Sun Shield SPF28, $26 CAD 

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Canadian Spring Launch

This one is formulated for normal skin. Here’s what it says on the website:

Sun Shield Unscented SPF 28 is an environmentally safe, unscented, full spectrum UVA/UVB sun defense that offers powerfully effective protection for face and body. Translucent Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide provide a safe alternative to harsh chemical sunscreens. The addition of soothing Aloe and a high-performance blend of antioxidants, including Vitamin E, helps boost skin’s natural defense system and reduce the signs of sun-induced irritation. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly for a smooth, clear, and matte finish. Gentle enough for infants and non-irritating to eyes… 

This one dries to a matte finish, kind of like a primer. It feels a little heavier on my skin than the SPF17 one that I’ve already reviewed. I think that it might be that this one contains Titanium Dioxide and the other one does not. Despite feeling a little heavier, it works really well with my foundation and concealer. It has a nice mix of skin friendly extras, so it is like a combination moisturizer / sunscreen / primer.

Replenishing Solar Defense SPF30, $35 CAD

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Canadian Spring Launch

This one is an anti-aging formula. Here’s what is says on the website:

Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 is formulated with Zinc Oxide to provide clear, mineral-based UVA and UVB protection and prevent premature aging and hyperpigmentation. Red Algae Extract and nourishing, hydrating Kukui and Macadamia Nut oils blend to restore moisture balance and reduce visible lines. A Titanium Dioxide-free option. 

This one is really nice on my skin. I prefer this one over the SPF28, as it feels lighter, yet more hydrating without feeling greasy. It plays nicely with foundation, concealer and powder like both the SPF17 and SPF28 formulations. It too feels like a primer when applied, but not as matte as the SPF28.

Disclosure: In case you missed it at the beginning, these are PR samples. However my opinion is my own, based on my experience in using the products.

  1. I’ve been looking for sunscreens without the harsh chemicals. My local drugstore never carries them because their Natural isles are small. I would need to go see if they sell this brand at Whole Foods. Thanks for the review!
    It really does sound like something I would want to get, I would like to wear a decent sunscreen underneath my makeup lol.

    1. I took the CAD price off of the PR product info sheets that they sent me – so Im hoping that it is correct. The products aren’t online at beautyboutique yet, but if I’m wrong, I’ll correct it and let you know!

      Reef safe – Im not entirely sure. Let me see what I can find out!

    2. Q: What does ‘Reef Safe’ mean?
      A: In 2008 a highly respected study (see reference) revealed that the 4 below ingredients commonly used in SPFs are dangerous to fragile coral reefs. MyChelle does not use ANY of these in our sunscreens. They include:

      • Oxybenzone (benzophenon-3)
      • Butylparaben
      • Oxtinoxate (ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate)
      • 4-methylbenzylidene camphor (4MBC)

      The study instead suggests the use of inorganic SPF filters such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Because MyChelle only uses these two natural ingredients to protect against UV rays, our sunscreens are considered reef safe. In addition, our sunscreens are biodegradable.
