Sounding like a company right up my street I was really happy when they sent me one of their products to road test – their incredible Vitamin A Plus Serum, which seemed like it would be ideal for my temperamental, 30-something year old skin.
MyChelle Vitamin A Serum (30ml, RRP £36)* is a potent plant-based serum that helps to accelerate cell turnover for clear, youthful, even-toned skin. Recommended for all skin types, it is especially good for older, blemish prone skins due to the high content of 1% Retinol (Vitamin A) which is beneficial in the treatment of acne due to its ability to separate dead skin cells from live skin cells thereby removing pore-clogging debris. It is also effective in resurfacing skin texture and promoting collagen formation to reduce wrinkles. Additionally nourishing Argan oil, naturally high in Vitamin E and Essential Fatty Acids, works to balance sebum production and protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
The serum has a lovely lightweight texture that is non-greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin. The blend of citrus fruit oils including Tangerine, Blood Orange, Grapefruit and Orange Oil, together with Sandalwood, Clary Oil, and Licorice Root gives it a warming yet zetsy aroma making it so pleasurable to use. Because of the Retinol content this serum will increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so it is recommended for use only at night and also to wear a sunscreen during the day. Just two pumps, twice weekly is all you need to aid cell turnover and reveal smoother, brighter skin.
MyChelle Vitamin A Serum is perfect antedote to our modern lifestyles, where stress, exhaustion and pollution can wreck havoc with our skin. Certainly when I had a weekend break recently where I didn’t make the best choices diet-wise and possibly drank a little too much alcohol (sorry not sorry!) it showed in my skin with a horrible breakout. Cue MyChelle Serum which really got my skin back on track; putting those pesky spots firmly back in their place and transforming my lacklustre complexion.
Serums are probably my most favourite of skincare products as I love their potency and the way they target specific needs. Perfect for layering up, its always good to have a few serums in your skincare arsenal to address different skin concerns.
