Two Newbies from MyChelle
After gushing over MyChelle Sun Shield SPF 50 tinted sun block earlier this Summer (read review) we realized we forgot to review another great new product: MyChelle Quick Clean MicellarWater ($15/4 oz.).
There is so much to like about Micellar Water!
For starters, it doesn’t require using soap or even washing it off. That makes it great for travel.
But Micellar Water also does an amazing job of removing hard to scrub off, long-lasting lip and eye products without irritating lips or eyes.
The MyChelle Micellar Water is not just good for cleansing, it’s good skin care infused with Kiwi Fruit and Strawberry extracts and other nourishing botanicals to help soften as well as cleanse all skin types.
Antioxidants Lotus Flower and Bamboo extracts also protect against environmental saboteurs and free radicals.
It is truly a great product with a great delivery system: a plastic bottle with an all in one “press down to dispense” top so there’s never any spillage or mess. Love it!
For Vitamin C fans, there’s a fabulous MyChelle Perfect C PRO Serum 25% ($52/1 fl. oz.)
A generous helping of stable 25% ascorbic acid can help to reduce the signs of aging.
But what makes this product particularly note-able is the concentrated and high level of Vitamin C with all of it’s proven antioxidant, anti-pollution and anti-aging benefits. Brighten and smooth skin and improve skin texture plus help to combat lines and wrinkles with this new product.
Vitamin C is also great to help revitalize mature or damaged skin.
Even better, it is made without GMO, Gluten, Parabens, Petroleum, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances, and Artificial Colors. Vegan. Cruelty-free.

VIE Hits Deep Wrinkles, Hard!
VIE Time Control Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream packs a punch with powerful anti-aging skin-loving benefits. This product targets skin that’s getting “slack” due to aging This isn’t an easy task for a mere jar of skin cream.
It isn’t an easy task for a mere jar of skin cream.
But a mixture of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid peptides plus trace elements and minerals work to deal with deep wrinkles within a month.
What is an EGF?
As we age the natural concentration of EGFs in our bodies decreases and lines and wrinkles can appear.
EGFs are proteins naturally present in the skin that enhance cell growth and regeneration (by initiating the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid).
An EGF-Like Peptide is used in this formula to fill wrinkles and smooth and regenerate the skin and to reduce any discomfort from thin or mature skin.
The product also has Pro-Collagen Peptides to target fibroblasts within the skin (they help produce collagen).
This is a luxury product and it’s pleasant. emollient but not greasy. The rich cream in an elegant clear jar with Matte black top has a light floral scent thanks to floral, musk and tea notes.
It’s not inexpensive at $189.50 for 1.6 fl. oz. jar so for some, this is a splurge.
But then again, the idea that a cream can reduce wrinkles and smooth skin in a visible way in a short period of time could be priceless.
Orlane’s Perfectly Lovely Skin Care Potions:
This lightweight skin care serum is meant to be applied before, and after, sun exposure. It contains a Jasmine Complex which strengthens the skin’s natural defense system against free radicals and also helps to reduce inflammation.
A Cocktail of Ingredients:
As with many sophisticated skin care products, there is a cocktail of ingredients that promote and support skin health:
Orlane’s B21 Bio-Energic Complex helps produce optimum hydration as prolonged exposure to the sun accelerates skin dehydration.
A Vitamin Complex of B1, B2, B12, B5 and PP helps to revitalize the skin and improves the skin’s barrier.
The product soothes skin before and after sun exposure, but the main idea is that it is protective. It also helps hydrate so skin feels smoother and firmer.
While it’s not a sunblock (you must use one) it works in tandem with your sun-care products. At $125 for 1.7 fl. oz. it may be a splurge for some but for what it does, it’s worth it!
Apply this skin care cream morning and evening and see your skin blossom – renewed.
The Sacred Blue Iris
The blue iris was a sacred plant in Ancient Egypt. It’s also the official flower of my sorority (bonus points if you can identify it).
The new B21 Extraordinaire Absolute Youth Cream takes your skin back in time, no matter what age you are with an exclusive complex that helps to reset your cells.
It targets all the things that might cause problems within the cell and helps cells regain all their energy to function as they did when the skin was younger. How wonderful!
History on the Jar Top!
Orlane Paris was created by a group of biochemists more than 60 years ago and the company is a leader in anti-aging products, even now.

Stretch Marks And Scars, Begone!
If stretch marks or scars are your skincare issue, you already know that they’re very hard to treat. But there’s hope from Serica by Cynova Laboratories. This company that has two new products: Serica Moisturizing Scar Formula and Serica Moisturizing Stretch Mark Formula.
These use Pracaxi oil, a highly moisturizing ingredient derived from the seed of the Pentaclethra macroloba (Pracaxi) tree found in the Amazon rainforest, and also Patula Oil from Madagascar..
Sodium hyaluronate acts as a natural humectant that nourishes skin by replacing lost moisture while Amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids and phytochemicals improve skin elasticity and suppleness. S
Serica also features a silicone polymer network that helps keep your skin hydrated,
It sounds exotic, but in reality, used for a couple of weeks there should be a lessening of your stretch marks or scars.
The non-staining, non-greasy formulas in oxygen-free pump bottles cost a modest $35-$4O in Walgreens, it’s definitely worth a try!
