MyChelle Remarkable Retinal Serum Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

MyChelle Remarkable Retinal Serum is an advanced anti-aging serum that utilizes Retinal (Retinaldehyde), a very potent form of Vitamin A, in conjunction with Ceramide 3 and plant-based stem cells to effectively promote skin-cell turnover, diminish the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and blemishes. Furthermore, it brightens skin and leaves it more even, smooth and luminous. I have used a lot of retinols over the years, and this is more gentle and non-irritating without sacrificing efficacy. I can use it every night without any burning, itching or peeling. If your skin is too sensitive for Retin-A, then this is a brilliant alternative.

I should note that it has a very lightweight gel-like consistency, and a light floral/herbal aroma that is neither cloying nor long-lasting. It is as pleasant to use as it is effective.
According to MyChelle Dermaceuticals,

Advanced serum with exclusive and patented IconicA® (Retinal)—the most potent form of Vitamin A—plus Ceramide 3 and Orange Plant Stem Cells to promote healthy skin renewal, help diminish skin discoloration (dark spots and blemishes), and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Directions: Apply 1-2 pumps in the evening after cleansing. For maximum results, wait 30 minutes before following with your favorite moisturizer. This product may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun; use sunscreen daily.

    1. Hi Jen, Retinal (Retinaldehyde) is a potent form of Vitamin. It is one of many forms of Vitamin A. It is also said that Retinal works faster than Retinol.

  3. I wonder if I could use this? My skin is so sensitive that I've given up on using retinol products in general.

    1. My skin is pretty sensitive, and I haven't had any problems with it, but you might want to sort test it (and perhaps try to get a sample) before committing to using it on your face.

  4. When a lot of my friends were using Retin A I know it was too strong for my skin. This would be a better alternative for me since I am now comfortable using retinol skincare. And MyChelle is always a great brand.

    1. It really depends upon the percentage used, and whether it is OTC or by prescription. It is definitely worth checking out, but I would recommend spot-testing to see if your skin is reactive. That said, my skin can be sensitive, and I have had no issues with this. I agree that MyChelle is a really great brand.

    1. This is definitely worth trying. My skin can be sensitive, and this oe definitely doesn't bother me at all. However, you should spot test before trying it if your sin is sensitive to Retin A. Retinal is still derived from Vitamin A, but it is a bit different from Retinol.

  7. I've liked a lot of MyChelle products and from your review this would probably make the like list as well. I don't use a lot of retinal in my routine yet and this would be a great product to start introducing it in.

    1. MyChelle products are really fantastic, and this one is definitely worth trying if you are looking to use a retinal-based serum. I really like it a lot.
