I have a really nice company to share with you today called MyChelle and they sent me the above collection of Age Defense products to try out. There are (6) products in this marvelous kit and they are just the right size to give you an idea of how they perform so that you will know if they are what you need or if they work for you before you go and get the regular sized products.
I loved the idea because I don't know about you, but I have wasted money in the past on products and then they did nothing for me or weren't all that they were cracked up to be so I am a firm believer in samples and trial sizes so that you don't waste your money. I live on a fixed income and it's hard to come by the amount of money that a lot of skincare companies want and then they fail.
So, this was an excellent idea that MyChelle launched. Also, they match you up with the correct collection based on what your skin type is and because mine is Dry, they chose the Age Defense Collection for me. All of their products can be tailored for what you need them to do.
Here is what was in my kit:
Step 1: Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser
Step 2: Fruit Fiesta Peel
Step 3: G2 Instant Firming Serum
Step 4: Fruit Enzyme Mist
Step 5: Revitalizing Night Cream
Step 6: Sun Shield Unscented Broad Spectrum SPF 28
I was also sent a tube of their Fabulous Eye Cream but did not use it because I wanted to hold a giveaway and decided to use that as the giveaway prize. I really prefer giving something away and thought this would make an excellent choice as it came in it's own box and was separate from the Age Defense Collection.
Let's start with the Pumpkin Cleanser, which I know all of you know by now that you have to start with a cleanser to get your face ready for the rest of the products that help repair or maintain your beautiful skin.
The Pumpkin Cleanser smells awesome! It is also for Dry Skin, which is what I have. I loved how creamy and silky this cleanser felt on my skin. It is packed with vitamins that cleans your skin but leaves it moisturized at the same time.
Benefits: It's soothing, hydrating and fortifying. Best used for dry skin or for anti-aging results.
Once your skin is cleaned, you can use the Fruit Fiesta Peel from 1 to 3 times a week.
I am a firm believer in peels, whatever shape they come, and have used them for a long time. I believe that they are what keeps my face looking good and not look so worn out. You may call the exfoliators instead of peels.
It only needs to stay on around 1 to 3 minutes, depending on your skin. I am used to them so I leave them all the full 3 minutes. If you are a beginner, start with 1 minute to make sure you can tolerate the peel.
The Fruit Fiesta Peel has Multi-Fruit Acids and 7% Lactic Acid. Potent Alpha-Hydroxy Acid blend smoothes the look of wrinkles, leaving skin feeling refreshed and invigorated, with a light tingling sensation. It is quite normal to feel that tingling and I actually prefer it because I know it's working and it passes my test, otherwise, I don't use it.
Benefits: This peel is Invigorating, Rejuvenating, Smoothing, great for Dry Skin or Anti-Aging.
Now, this was actually my very favorite product! The G2 Instant Firming Serum is something I used every time I went outside the house, especially to my doctor appointments and tests. Within 1 hour of putting on, you will feel and see the results!
This amazing Serum will deliver skin smoothing peptides instantly to lift and firm the skin while antioxidants refine skin texture and fight free radical damage.
These (3) ingredients are what make this such a powerful serum for you and me:
**ArgirelineTM Peptide is clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth up to 27%.
**Fast-acting Instalift™, from Goji Berries, has been shown to dramatically increase skin firmness in only one hour.
**Fermented Pomegranate Extract, a super-antioxidant, refines skin texture as it fights free-radical damage.
Benefits: This awesome Serum is great for Tightening, Lifting, Restoring. Great for anti-aging and Dry Skin.
I know you guys have heard about what Tumeric can do and it seems like it is the next best and greatest skin product to help with anti-aging. The Fruit Enzyme Mist is awesome as a way to skin your skin looking fresh and hydrated. You can spray it several times a day to keep yourself looking fresh and glowing.
These ingredients are what make this mist so awesome:
Antioxidant Turmeric strengthens and Vitamin C-rich super fruit Mangosteen supports collagen to help skin maintain youthful-looking firmness and structure. Pectin and Pineapple help resurface by boosting natural exfoliation for ultra-soft and smooth skin.
Benefits: You skin will feel all of this: Hydrating, Refreshing, Reviving. Great for all skin types.
And what would we do without a night cream? This is one essential along with a day cream that you must not ever skimp on. I firmly believe in using day and night creams along with your eye cream. If you do nothing else, those three things are what you need to strive for. MyChelle's Revitalizing Night Cream is one night cream that I would suggest you invest in.
Just this once, I am going to use MyChelle's description of their Night Cream because it really stresses what you need to know about a good night cream:
Nutrient-rich cream works overnight to restore skin’s youthful radiance and firmness. ChroNOline™ Peptide is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by 16% in just 28 days. Test results show Monk’s Pepper noticeably reduces line depth, increases hydration and improves skin firmness all within 4 weeks.
If you have Dry Skin like I do, this awesome cream will help with dehydrated and damaged skin. I loved the way my face felt after I applied this rich creamy night cream.
Benefits: You will love it's Moisturizing, Age Defying and Restoring capabilities. Great for Dry Skin and Anti-Aging problems.
Now, for the daytime, you and I both know that sun protection is absolutely necessary. This awesome Sun Shield SPF 28 in unscented is the perfect cream to use underneath your makeup for the daytime. What I loved the most about this cream was that it did not irritate my eyes and cause them to water. I have tried other sunscreens that did this and if I dared sweat just a little, then my eyes really would be on fire! No way am I going to suffer like that ever again!
MyChelle's Sun Shield was perfect! No irritating chemicals to worry about, just the great protection from the sun and I was good to go. Sun Shield has Translucent Zinc and Titanium Dioxide to provide a safe alternative to harsh chemical sunscreens. The addition of soothing Aloe and Vitamin E help reduce signs of sun-induced irritation.
Just apply as often as you think you need it as you know your skin better than I do. Because I don't go out as much as someone else might, I only had to apply once a day. It will give you all that you need in a sunscreen and best part of all is that it is environmentally- safe and it's a full spectrum UVA/UVB protectant.
Benefits: It will do all the Protecting, Shielding and Preventing for you. For all Skin Types.
MyChelle has a lot more products besides the ones I just went over and I would love for you to check them out and find the ones that fit you the best. I could go on and on about them but I think you have gotten the gist of what they are all about.
I love that they are a natural company and that they try to give us great products that are also friendly to our planet. They prove this by giving back to their community and to other organizations such as the Women's Bean Project, which you know I have written about in the past and given products away to you from them. So, for them to be in the same league with Women's Bean Project should tell you a lot about them.
Now, I saved the best for last. I will be giving away the Fabulous Eye Cream that they sent me to use but I wanted a giveaway, so one winner will get to try this awesome Eye Cream. If it's anything like the other products that I just reviewed, you will love it!
