I received a few skincare products from one of my favorite natural brands, MyChelle (I adore their sunscreens), and the one I grabbed first was MyChelle Perfect C Eye Cream. MyChelle has a Perfect C skincare line that reminds me a lot of Murad’s and Ole Henricksen’s vitamin C lines but more affordable.
MyChelle Perfect C Eye Cream comes in a cute flat plastic tube that tucks easily into a pocket in case you carry your eye cream with you, and it takes up next to no room in a makeup bag.
You’re supposed to shake the tube to mix the ingredients before use, and that’s one thing that I often forget. I’m trying to train myself to do it!
The cream is a light beige in color.
The tube says that it may darken over time. So once you open the tube, don’t save it – use it up! It contains L-ascorbic acid, one of the less stable forms of vitamin C, so don’t let it sit around. But the reason that MyChelle chose L-ascorbic acid, the form found naturally in skin, is that it is the only active form of vitamin C, and one of the best ingredients for creating positive change in skin. MyChelle likes L-ascorbic acid because it:
- penetrates skin
- is usable in its current form (some ascorbic acids need to “convert” to L-ascorbic acid to be more effective)
- boosts skin’s natural antioxidant properties, protecting against pollution and environmental damage
- enhances skin’s natural renewal processes
- helps even skin tone, fade dark spots and scars from acne.
In addition to L-ascorbic acid, Perfect C Eye Cream contains plant stem cells and sodium hyaluronate, the smaller molecular form of hyaluronic acid that better penetrates skin. The new advanced formula version of MyChelle’s fan favorite eye cream delivers humectant-rich nutrients and moisture to deeply nourish, brighten, and help reduce the appearance of visible fine lines. Good stuff!
Perfect C Eye Cream is lightweight, and MyChelle recommends patting it gently onto the contours of the eye. Yay, not just under the eyes. I find the eye cream soothing and hydrating. There are some eye creams that irritate my sensitive eyes, but not MyChelle Perfect C Eye Cream – it spreads and absorbs easily, and just feels so good especially when the skin in my crease and lid feels tight and irritated from blepharitis.
Because of both the lightweight form and the richness of the formula, I think MyChelle Perfect C Eye Cream is a good choice for all skin types and ages except maybe those who prefer a thick or heavy eye cream.
