Product Description


Skin-refining Vitamin A and nourishing antioxidants improve the texture and smoothness of rough, dull and congested skin. Retinol and naturally-derived Vit-A-Like™ work together to resurface skin, clearing pore blockage and minimizing the appearance of lines. Argan oil, naturally high in Vitamin E and Essential Fatty Acids, works to balance sebum production.


Tip
Sunscreen and Retinol are the only ingredients to be considered by the FDA to be anti-aging.

Actives/Ingredients


Retinol (Vitamin A) 1% – A fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin indicated in the treatment of acne due to its ability to separate dead skin cells from live skin cells thus expediting the removal of pore-clogging debris. Also effective in resurfacing skin texture and promoting collagen formation to reduce wrinkles.


Vigna Aconitifolia (Moth Bean) Seed Extract (Vit-A-like™) – An anti-aging topical Vitamin A suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Clinically proven to stimulate epidermal cellular renewal and growth factors in order to enhance collagen synthesis via fibroblast cells.

Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil– Tree indigenous to South Morocco, rich in poly-unsaturated fatty acids (including linoleic acid, omega-6) and natural tocopherols, nourishing, regenerating and protective. Excellent anti-free radical effect for a preventive anti-ageing effect. Nourishes dry skin by helping to restore the skin barrier.

Helped my cystic acne

I have battled cystic acne most my adult life. I had tried everything including Accutane and nothing had worked. So imagine my surprise to find that this non-presrciption product that my friend lent me was the most effective product I have used. It shrunk the majority of my cysts and my skin is the clearest it has ever been. THANK YOU!!!

From a Medical Aesthetician

With more and more educational resources available to us, we have come to understand the importance of "non-toxic". However, we often will value beauty above health due to media pressure in the world we live in. I have been using Retin-A as an anti-ager for most of my adult life but decided to give this serum a try in my attempt to detoxify my life. I have to say that I am just amazed. I use it every night and pretty much every third morning, I can "gommage" off the dead skin. The first time I tried to put my (Mychelle) sunscreen on in the morning and skin started rolling up under it creating a gross mess, I was confused. Soon I came to see that it was taking three or so applications of the Vit A serum to dissolve the intercellular glue that holds old, dead skin cells - a phenomenon that occurs more and more with age and causes the skin to start looking muddy and stops the light from reflecting properly as it did in our earlier years. Now every three days, I just give myself a nice, gentle gommage with my hands and get the dead cells off before applying my vitamin C serum and my sunblock. What a powerful combination they are and seriously - my skin looks so smooth, clear - fantastic!!! I'm never going back.

A no-nonsense miracle product

I was turned into this product because it was recommended by Cosmopolitan. Well I'm 20 years old and have battled hormonal acne on my chin for nearly 6 years. I was about to give up and accept the fact that I will never have perfect skin until I just took a leap of faith and bought this serum. Well, this serum along with the perfect c serum have dramatically cleared my skin in 3 weeks. My acne scars are diminishing and overall my skintone is a lot more even. If this is what happens in as little as 3 weeks with consistency, I am so excited to see what my skin will look like at the 6 week mark, the 6 month mark and beyond! Thank you Mychelle, Thank you so much for fusing the best of nature and the best of science together, especially since I won't put anything toxic on my skin. (Remember you will also need to apply sunscreen and Mychelle's sunscreen is divine too!) Thank you, thank you, thank you.. 10 STARS!

will buy again

this serum worked great on my skin. I have sensitive and oily congested acne prone skin and after using this for one night I immediately saw a difference in the size of my pores including more even skin tone and less blemishes. This is now part of my night regimen and use it every night. I make sure I use sunblock in the day time. It is gentle enough for my skin yet it works great and I notice results!!!
