I purchased the nude based on recommendations here. I really like it. I have dry, sensitive skin and an allergy to dimethicone. I've been using this for five days on a trip to Florida that included a 10K race. No sunburn, no breakouts. I use a moisturizer under it and add a couple drops of squalane (which is also new to me) to it in my palm. More matte than I am used to, but doesn't seem to make my wrinkles any worse (which I can't say about many things now). Finding "hydrating" products without dimethicone nowadays is so difficult that I had given up wearing foundation. Because of a history with basal cell skin cancer, I must wear sunscreen. This checks the sunscreen box and helps a bit in the "camouflage the age spots" box.

Mychelles creams smell the absolute worse. It was also too emollient for my face and caused cystic pimples. I wanted to use it for the back of my hands but I couldn't get over the old lady smell.

I didn't experience any breakouts while using but I'm not crazy about how it feels on my skin. It doesn't moisturize very well and when I looked up close at my skin, it was full of shimmer. It made my pores look nice though.

I learned about Mychelle through my sister who raves and swears by their products, and when I saw this moisturizer for $9 at TJ Maxx I thought that it couldn't hurt to try-- even if I ended up not liking it I could always pass it onto my sister. My skin is weird that it changes due to where I am and what time of the year, I do travel and move often and to many different types of regions and climates. Currently I am Greece where the average temperature is high 80s-low 90s (~30-32 C) and very high humidity (50%+). Due tot he humidity and the heat, I do tend to produce more oil but I have noticed that with continuous use of this moisturizer it has become way more balanced. However, I have noticed that if I wear sunscreen on top (Biore Watery Essence 50) my skin does tend to get oily throughout the day, but that most likely is due to the weather and other things that I have put on top interacting with the moisturizer. For the summer, it is pretty moisturizing that I never feel my face to be dry. Granted, I do use a very mild and moisturizing cleanser (La Roche Posay Dermocleanser) so I don't really suffer from that tight feeling. For the winter, however, I could see myself using something a little more thicker like an oil just because my skin does suffer in the cold, and needs a decent layer of protection. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this product. It's not amazing, but it's not doing anything bad to my skin. It keeps my acne at bay, and it moisturizes just enough for the summer. For the price that I got it, I am very happy with it.

I started using this serum in my mid-30s and I am now 38. I have sensitive-combination-acne-prone skin with some sun spots and the first signs of couperose redness in my cheeks. This is a very gentle, effective formula and has provided a lot of benefits for me. I'm surprised at the negative reviews. I will say that I don't really have any wrinkles and I started using this from a sample at Whole Foods in a preventative way, and I have repurchased it 3 times in 3 years. A little goes a long way and you do not need to use much (pea sized) for your whole face.It does take about 30-40 minutes to fully absorb, so I use a hydrating serum or toner before applying this product--I don't like the way it feels when moisturizer is applied on top of it. I have had zero irritation or dryness or flaking with this method. I also use this every other night.While this product did not miraculously transform me into a teenager, I experience the following benefits when using this product every other night consistently:-Pimples reduced in size overnight and the redness turned to light pink-remarkable brightness in skin tone-while not magically shrunk, pores seem less visible-plumping of skin when using consistently-no flaking or "thinned skin" as is common with other retinal productsI recommend this product for anyone who has sensitivity toward acid or exfoliating products and for anyone who wants to lighten and brighten their complexion. The combination of citrus derived compounds in this formula really boost the lightening effect.
