ok. it did sting a little when I put it on. but for the most part it made my just washed face feel dirty. real disappointed with this entire line of skin care
EXCELLENT product that has made an obvious difference in my skin!
I want to start off by saying that there isn’t anything that I have tried so far of the MyChelle line that I dislike; there ARE a few products that I think are simply OK and perhaps not worth the price but I LOVE the majority of the line and can’t say enough great things about the company and their products! It’s a ‘clean’ line that avoids harmful or questionable chemicals and ingredients like most other lines contain and this line actually WORKS!! I DO notice a difference in my skin texture, even skin tone, pore size (I don’t believe that they can be shrunk but using this line makes them appear smaller), the small teeny wrinkle lines either are less obvious and in some cases have disappeared. The one area that it hasn’t made much difference are the lines in my neck so I’m still searching for something to help me there. In the meantime, I’m using MyChelle’s protocol for sun damaged skin for that area.What I love about this Perfect C Serum is that within 2 days of using it, my skin appeared a bit more smoother both in tone (discolorations) and in texture – even immediately after washing my face so there was no product on my skin. I do tend to use more than most I would assume…I use it on my entire face – under eyes & eyelids to my neck and decollate` area. I’ve heard conflicting info from skin care companies in regards to layering serums…some say you can’t, that what goes on first gets penetrated and the rest doesn’t get absorbed enough to be worth putting on your skin after the 1st layer of serum and others say that it will penetrate through the skin but at a slower rate. MyChelle claims that you CAN layer your serums so I use the Perfect C in the evening first then layer it with the Firming Serum then follow with a moisturizer. In the daytime, I only use the Firming Serum with a moisturizer.I have 2 compliants about this Perfect C Serum…one is that it’s simply too small. The other serums are sold in larger bottles at the same price range. This Perfect C serum is sold in the same size bottle as their Magnolia Fresh Eyes…so essentially you are supposed to use this serum on your entire face but yet you are only offered enough for your eye area. So essentially, it costs twice as much as their other serums in the long run…something is amiss there!My other complaint is actually about Amazon. I want to start off by saying that I LOVE Amazon!!! For the past couple of years, about 90% of my purchases – besides food and clothing come from Amazon. I DO realize that at times some prices fluctuate but this WAS being sold on Amazon for $33.25 (since I was tracking it in Jan 2010) and as of today, 2/8/10, the price skyrocketed to a whopping $7 MORE in ONE day! So now the price on this item is $40 and change!! About 2yrs ago, I found it a convenience that most items that I purchased were either comprable in pricing OR that Amazon’s prices were lower than what I could find locally and at other online retailers. I can find this Perfect C serum for less than $40 locally and when my local health food stores have their 15% – 25% off sales, then unless Amazon will lower back their price on this to the original $33.25, I’ll be buying it elsewhere and stocking up when on sale. Now granted, one item that I use on a regular basis that I have to pick up somewhere besides Amazon is no big deal but as I notice an item here and there having a price increase, then I won’t be able to justify keeping my Amazon Prime membership and may have to consider going back to the brick & mortar days of shopping. I HOPE NOT – I’m too much of an Amazon fan to eagerly make that change but a whopping $7 increase for one item that I use on a regular basis that is too little of product to begin with is not settling well with me today. Hopefully Amazon will revert the pricing back…if so, I’d be more than happy to edit my review to note that Amazon (again) has the best pricing on this particular product…until then, YES! I do recommend this product but I’d suggest seeing if you can catch it on sale from a local store, MyChelle’s website or other online retailers as you CAN find it for less than $40. I go through this stuff too fast to spend that much on it. I think the reason why I’m so irked about this today is that I purchased this one sale locally and have a couple weeks worth of product left and was planning on purchasing it via Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program only to find out they increased the price. I felt compelled to write a review about it because I obviously wanted to share how wonderful this product was and also share that people can find it for less than $40…hopefully soon, Amazon will be one of the places where we can enjoy this at a more affordable price.Why the 4 star review? Simply because of the small bottle size that MyChelle bottles & sells it at. If it weren’t for this, this would be a 100% 5 star product in my opinion!!! I’ll update any more changes in my skin as time goes on…ETA: I spoke to a rep at MyChelle today to be certain that I’m using what is best for my needs in their skincare line and was told that their Perfect C serum is the most popular serum because people actually notice an obvious difference in their skin. When I told her that I noticed that the skin discolorations in my skin were less evident within just a few days, she thought it was due to the 17% Ascorbic Acid in it but said that she’s heard some wonderful claims from this product. I was told that it’s not suggested to use it anywhere near the eye area because this is so effective and the eye area is so delicate…I HAVE been using it in my eye area since I wanted it to ‘do it’s thing!’ and I told her that I have been using and my eye area seems to handle it just fine but she strongly suggested that I don’t for concern that it may too harsh for that delicate skin area.Last tidbit: According to MyChelle company, you CAN layer up to 3 of their serums and will benefit from all 3 of them. Any more they say won’t get absorbed as well AND you’ll end up with ‘peeling dried serum’ since it would be too thick. She said the key is to only use very little if you choose to layer – she said she only uses 1 calibrated pump of each serum since she prefers to layer them.***I DID beg for a lower price on this and / or a larger size for this since the size is the same as their eye gel yet the same price as other serums…she said she doesnt’ know of any plans to do so but she would note it in their customer feedback area…I would think that if enough people asked the same, MAYBE they’d consider it?? We can hope, right?
Effective, high quality
I have noticed a definite improvement in my complexion with this serum. My skin is softer, my pores are cleaner. While I don’t really have wrinkles, the tone and texture of my skin have greatly benefited from the use of this serum. Mychelle products are very high quality, and this one is no exception. I love the convenience of ordering through Amazon at lower prices, and setting up recurrent shipments, so that I never run out of this product. Highly recommended!
Awesome product, but faulty packaging
This product is amazing, I’ve only been using it for a couple days but my skin tone is already clearer and more even. I used to have a lot of clogged pores and blackheads on my nose, but even those are gone now and my skin looks poreless.The only downside for me is that the bottle leaked a little during the shipping process so I lost a little bit of product. That’s the reason why I gave it four as opposed to five stars. I think in the future I’ll try to find a local store where I can buy the product but I won’t have to worry about it spilling.
I had high hopes for this product. I received a sample which seemed to be helping my tired, congested skin, so I thought I’d go ahead and order a full bottle of it. I had read so many great things about it that I was sure that it would create some visible results in my skin. Sadly, this serum did nothing for me. What other reviewers said about the pump and packaging is true. It does tend to waste and leak. The smell is sort of strange and it lingers on your hands even after you wash them, which is rather annoying. I guess it just doesn’t work for my skin, which is a bummer.
Natural, effective, and priced well for what you get
Although I know the price tag is a little high for a product so small, if you compare to other quality vitamin C serums, this one is quite reasonable. The packaging is good, because you can twist the lid off to get out every bit of product, and the dispenser does not squirt out too much.I use the serum for preventive maintenance against oxidation and sun damage.This product offers a higher percentage of L-Ascorbic acid than many serums. Ascorbic is what you want in a C serum, and the higher the percentage, the more effective (and therefore more pricey) the item is. So again, when comparing against competing products, MyChelle is a winner.If you have sensitive skin, you -might- feel a slight burn when you apply, since it is after all an acid. I’ve never found it uncomfortable myself, but I have very tolerant skin. There’s no unpleasant smell, and MyChelle does not fill their products with a bunch of nasty dyes, parabens, and other preservatives.Bottom line, I highly recommend.
Great Serum to refresh skin and moisturize
This Serum is a great moisturizer and it disappears into your skin leaving no greasy film.I use it every day. It does not cause any blemishes.
This stuff rocks
Serums are always better than creams. If you have dried cracked skin and you use this everyday after your shower, that will be a thing of the past.
Give it time, and it will fade dark spots and redness
I’ve been using this serum for about six weeks, and I started suddenly noticing a difference in my facial skin tone just last week. The dark spots (which have gotten worse as I’ve gotten closer to 40) and redness (which has always been part of my fair skin) suddenly looked noticeably lighter to me. My face doesn’t have the red look to it that it usually has.I’ve been using this once a day. I apply it right after I shower to my face, and neck and let it dry and sink in before I apply my SPF moisturizer. Since I have sensitive skin, it does burn a bit, but the burning subsides pretty quickly.Overall, a great product for aging skin! Be patient and you’ll see results.UPDATE ON 1-12-13: Like some other reviewers, I had problems getting this serum to dispense when I got to the bottom of the bottle. I still had quite a bit of serum in the bottle, but had to open each time (which lets in air and degrades the serum) to get it to come out. Once I finished it, I ended up switching toDevita Devita-C Accelerator, 1-Ouncesince you get twice as much product for a better price. The Devita serum works just as well as the MyChelle one.
I like the texture, nothing else
Its color turn to yellow from transparency after a month of use? They should notice us before we purchase it! Paula’s Choice rates this product poorly and I totally understand the reason behind it, because the ingredients irritates my skin! But thought Vitamin C can reduce the pigments on my face
A great thing to do for your skin!
This skin serum is wonderful!I would never of used a serum product if it wasnt for this one!
