product for life.I bought this product last year whilst in the States, and only used it about 4 months ago. I wanted to refine some old acne scars,( olive skin, scar like crazy) as well as dark spots from 2 cystic acne spots, on my cheeks no less, after a staph infection on my finger travelled to my face- WITHIN A DAY! As an aside- learn from me ladies and gents, staph is not a joke.
Anywho, I only began using this in winter because I didn't want to slough off my summer tan, and Im so glad I did.
1)It is very gentle compared to a regular strength retinal cream, like .1% or even .5%, which I could never complete because of the caustic smell and extreme flaking effect- those are too strong for sensitive skin types like myself. Mychelle is awesome for us sensi's, and this product is no exception.
2) A little goes a long way. I am frustrated when I get a product and after two weeks Im already thinking about how I'll be able to afford another as the current bottle is halfway gone. I also don't like having to use a product sparingly, or only once a week, because it's a) too expensive b) not much in the bottle to begin with. All the Mychelle products I've used to date are pleasingly long-lasting.
3) Sking GLOWS!!!!- I used it once every two nights for a couple weeks, then every night for a week, then back to once every 2 days until the bottle was done. This took about 2 months. And I actually still have some left. I did notice during the once -a-day regime my skin was seriously thin feeling, so I backed off and took a tonne of omegas and probiotics. Aftr the entire process was done, and actually during, my face had the skin of a bronzed, ageless, hybrid-Japanese woman, (my olive skin even and became darker like when i was a kid), smoother than a freshly polished shellacked fake nail, and didn't wear any more makeup than some eyeliner. No blush, no bb/cc cream or tin, just my face!
I haven't been able to do that for about two years, mostly due to hormonal issues changing the colour of my skin, but this product seemed to really even me out. One just has to be regimented about application- you won't see results if you put it on sporadically.
Get it, you won't regret it.
