MAY SKINCARE REVIEW! FEAT. NEOSTRATA RESTORE DAYTIME PROTECTION CREAM SPF15 & MYCHELLE FRUIT ENZYME SCRUB !





Hey all, 

We are all heading into the month of May and it's nearly half-way through the year.. Well to start off this month, I've tested out the amazing products from the NeoStrata and Mychelle Dermaceuticals range. It's very important to always use a good daytime protection cream because if not, your skin will face ageing, freckles will start to appear and it will look dull in appearance. I noticed this when I stopped using a good protection cream for a few days... I found that my skin was not looking its greatest during the day because of the lack of skin protection. I've even noticed more visible freckles...

So for the awesome skincare products for MAY, I will be reviewing the following: 
  • NeoStrata Restore Daytime Protection Cream SPF 15 
  • Mychelle, Fruit Enzyme Scrub



NeoStrata Restore Daytime Protection Cream SPF 15 

Ever wondered how to reduce the visible signs of ageing and help protect your skin from further damage? I found that the NeoStrata Restore Daytime Protection cream is lightweight and does not feel heavy at all when absorbed on skin. I would use this daytime cream every mornings to ensure that I get the added sun protection. 

It's very non-greasy for a moisturiser where it also helps to strengthen the skin's protective barrier while the SPF 15 will defend skin against harsh UV rays. By using this as your ideal daily moisturiser, you're in a way helping to calm any irritations or redness you may face. I loved how it was not oily when applied onto skin, it didn't clog my pores nor did it cause me to breakout.  There was no harsh scent coming from the product so this make it fragrance-free - making it suitable for those who have sensitive skin too. After a few days of using the daily protection cream, I could see an improved appearance of the fine lines around the areas of my eyes.

I read more into what actually is contained in the cream and I found out that it includes antioxidants, Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid which all protect skin from any radicals and also helps to promote younger looking skin by boosting the elasticity of it. I normally would get redness around my skin and found that after using this daily cream, my redness was reduced which gave me a brighter and clearer complexion. I am happy that my skin responded really well to using this product. I've been using other SPF sunscreens and after trying this daytime protection cream, I am very satisfied with the results. I tend to purchase daytime creams where it can look to improve my complexion and balance my skin tone. It gives me a very matte look and so I like how it reduces shine to my face. 

The product is presented in a 40g tube where it makes it super easy to squeeze out product to use. The cream is white and has a thick consistency to it. The texture is quite smooth and sense and there's no harsh fragrance to the cream. Using the product is absolutely easy where I would just spread a generous amount over the skin and just gently massage it in. I would just be careful to not overly massage the cream, as it can ball up into tiny bits. 

To find a daytime protection cream which can keep my face super moisturised but also protect it from sun damage is always ideal for me because I get the 2-1 benefits of using it. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this and giving this 5/5 stars!

MyChelle, Fruit Enzyme Scrub
(Stimulate, Exfoliate, Polish!) 

Ok guys! Wait till I tell you more about MyChelle's Fruit Enzyme scrub which is a hit in the US beauty market. It's made to really exfoliate dead skin cells that build up on your skin and also assist to effectively remove grime and dirt. MyChelle's Fruit Enzyme scrub is a dual scrub where it polishes and dissolves enzymes quickly whilst working to exfoliate all of the dead skin cells present in pores. 

The scrub comes in smooth Jojoba Beads and refined Bamboo Stem Powder which all polishes the skin surface without causing any redness or irritations.

Fruit enzymes work by dissolving the dull residue leaving your skin super smooth after rinsing with lukewarm water. 

This is an amazing scrub for MyChelle to bring out and I simply love it!  The beads are very effective in removing all of the trapped dirt and grime in my pores. I usually have oily skin and so when I used this scrub, I felt that my face was more controlled and looked clean and replenished. You don't even need to use a Clairsonic brush to scrub your face, this product have many key ingredients that polishes skin and buffs away any surface debris. It's essential to keep your pores clean and unclogged as this can cause future breakouts. 

I used a moisturiser after using the scrub and my skin felt like super soft baby skin. This product is so ideal for winter and I am amazed by how it all works. What's great about the MyChelle Fruit Enzyme scrub is that it's part of a wider range of cruelty, gluten and casein free, veggie products created under MyChelle's belief of clean science! My skin is left feeling flawless and glowing. I am truly happy about this face scrub and keen to see what more of their range do they offer.

In the long term, with greater use of this scrub, it can definitely give you a more of brighter and glowing complexion and free from trapped dirt and grime. Your pores will be super cleaned by the scrub and it's definitely a scrub I would include in my morning and evening skin pampering sessions. 

The product comes in a tube with a flip top lid in 68ml. It's very easy to use and the packaging that held the tube is 100% environmentally friendly. It's also paraben, sulfates, artifical colour and fragrance free. 

Overall, it's definitely a good type of scrub I'd see myself using daily. It's a 5/5 stars for me! 

Key ingredients include: 
  • Bamboo Stem Extract - polishes and buffs skin surface debris. 
  • Jojoba Esters
  • Pectin (Fruit Enzymes) - infuses the skin with antioxidants which assist in repairing skin's functions and from free radical assault. 

POSITIVES:
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan friendly
  • Gluten free
  • 100% post consumer paper packaging. 
  • Made in USA
  • No parabens, sulfates, artificial colours

NEGATIVES: 
  • Zilch. 

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • To smooth away dull looking flakes on skin, apply a thin layer after cleansing your skin and gently polish using your fingertips. 
  • Leave this on your face for 3-5 minutes for the enzyme to take action. 
  • Rinse with lukewarm water. 
  • Remember to apply serums, moisturisers as normally. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

Happy reading all - and have you found your perfect scrub..?


Take care,
