MyChelle is the leader in bioactive, paraben-free dermaceutical skin-care. Their products are revolutionary – using plant stem cells, a break-through in skin-care technology that has a proven effect in supporting skin’s cellular turnover. Simply pure, MyChelle products promote clean, healthy, radiant skin and combine nature and science for dramatic long-term results.
When I learned about and researched MyChelle, I became eager to experience their products on my own skin. MyChelle is dedicated to purity and committed to safe potent products that are effective and nontoxic. Nature nurtures in every sense of the word with MyChelle paraben-free skin care products.
The beauty industry is a billion-dollar business. With so many options, it is important to know what you are actually using on your skin because 65% of the product you apply on your skin is absorbed into your skin MyChelle not only creates brilliant looking skin, the products are beneficial to the skin inside and out.
Everything I write about is something I have experienced so that you get the truth.
Here are the MyChelle products I have been using and highly recommend. All of MyChelle’s products are light to the touch, absorbing quickly into the skin, producing the best results.
The Pumpkin Cleanser is creamy, rich and feels silky on my skin. The smell itself is inviting. I have enjoyed using it so much that I have shared it with my friends. I want them to feel and smell how clean and fresh my skin feels after using it.
I really like MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Spray. This is used as the toner. No more need for cotton balls and follow-up applications. I just spray it on my face and neck and I’m ready for the moisturizer. It is quick, bright and green, leaving my skin feeling brand new. This is a progressive system. The mist is best used when the skin is damp to absorb the nutrients rapidly.
After using the Fruit Enzyme Spray, I use MyChelle serums and go between using the G-2 Instant Firming Serum and the Apple Brightening Serum as a protective layer of natural goodness.
The G-2 Serum is an anti-aging collagen booster which lifts and firms, using Gogi berry and Argireline peptides. MyChelle Dermaceutical Apple Brightening Serum immediately diminishes discoloration and the look of sun-damage. It covers up spots with revolutionary PhytoCellTecTM as it brightens the skin and creates a bright toned quality.
Eyes are the window to the soul, so MyChelle would do nothing less than create a serum that keeps eyes looking vibrant and fresh. Magnolia Fresh Eyes is good for all combination skin. Free of harmful ingredients, you do not have to worry about using this product near your eyes. It is gentle and natural, as is all of the MyChelle skin care line. Magnolia Fresh Eyes diminishes dark circles under the eyes and puffy bags with a blend of peptides and plant extracts. The peptides strengthen capillaries.
Award-winning MyChelle’s Supreme Polypeptide Cream is a stellar moisturizer.
It’s creamy, nutrient rich texture glides onto my skin, nourishing my face and neck all day long with antioxidants and peptides. Utilizing natural ingredients with our own reparative functions, it accelerates and benefits skin’s natural processes at every age.
Speaking of age, the best thing you can do for your skin is Sunscreen. MyChelle has two All/Combination organic skin care products that are exceptional.
Replenishing Solar Defense 30 not only protects skin from the Suns harmful rays today, but also helps repair and avert photo-damage brought on by the Sun. The non-opaque Zinc Oxide naturally protects against UVA and UVB rays. It is perfect to wear over MyChelle Serums and crèmes for outstanding sunscreen protection. The quality non-opaque allows for make-up to go on flawlessly and look natural too.
Sun Shield SPF 28 is gentle enough for infants 6 months and older without eye irritation. Powerfully effective, the Translucent Zinc and Titanium Dioxide provide a safe and beneficial choice this summer and all year round.
About three weeks after I began using MyChelle products on my skin, I went to a high-end salon for a facial. I was delighted when the esthetician (used by many celebrities) said I had beautiful skin. She said this while looking through bionic lenses! My pore sizes are greatly reduced when utilizing the MyChelle line.
MyChelle products do not disappoint. The longer I use MyChelle products, the better my skin looks and feels. I am not boasting, but flattered that I continue to be stopped and get complimented on my skin. I was even asked if I had work done, “No, it is MyChelle!”
I have provided the MyChelle web site to several women who stopped me to compliment me on my skin. I want to share MyChelle with as many women and men as possible, we deserve it!
These and many more quality MyChelle products can be found at Whole Foods and
ZONA PERSONAL SPA – NATURAL BEAUTY!
Zona Personal Spa Natural Beauty has a wealth of products for your individual scent and skin type. Their Extra Virgin Shea Butter in French Lavender, feels like creme on my hands, but not greasy. The smell is gentle, not over pouring… I call it inviting.
The Mono-Use Self-Lathering Satchel deeply cleanses the body, invigorates the senses while removing old skin and energizing new skin. My skin feels soft after using the Botanical Cleanse. This is before putting on any of their Lozines. An array of hand and rehydrating body lotions that are formulated with 12+ active botanical ingredients. The self-lathering satchel is so smart and simple to use. Place the botanical cleanser into the satchel and use all over your face or body. There are face satchels and body satchels, as the face is more delicate and so is the face satchel.
After using the soap or cleanser, rinse out the satchel and let it dry. After it has dried it is ready to use again.
There is only one ZONA, and there are a variety of products. I felt like a kid in a candy store. Everything is made naturally to support and benefit the skin.
When I use the facial satchel and French Lavender soap formulated with active ingredients for the face, my pink vibrant face radiated, looking refreshed and leaving my skin feeling clean and soft.
Zona skin care is recommended by dermatologist’s and favored by celebrities.
If you live in Los Angeles, you can sample and experience ZONA first hand with the creator of these majestic cremes at the Westwood Farmers Market in Westwood, CA on Wednesdays or check the website listed above. Tell them Saper sent you!

Thanks for checking in! I’m sorry for not having new posts for the past week but I was out with the flu. Who heard of such a thing in the Summer?
I have something great for women especially in the summer, it is completely natural and most likely you have it in your home! If you want your legs, elbows, feet, etc., to be as soft as a bare baby’s bottom… this is the way to do it, naturally.
SEA SALT, JOJOBA OIL, or Grape Seed, Vitamin E…
READ THE LABEL! Sometimes an Oil will say it is something but the ingredients show other additives. Just make sure it is pure and Paraben free.
Mix 3 part oil to one part Sea Salt and swirl together, then put it on your body as you would a purchased salt or sugar scrub. This feels better, it is A LOT less money, and so simple, plus the outcome of bare baby bottom soft skin! Yes, soft elbows.
If you live in Los Angeles, a store in Beverly Hills on South Beverly Drive recently opened called SASSY. The owner is great and she features mostly Paraben free beauty products and skin and hair products for both men and women. She has a large variety so make sure and ask for the Paraben free products. She does free Make-up applications.
Please let me know what you think.
Shortly we will be featuring women and men just like you and me for make on’s. A refreshing look at individuals beauty with Paraben free cosmetics and products. For Men we will be doing skin and hair. There will be before and after photos. We will NOT be doing the before frown after smile… This blog is real, so the results will be too.
Don’t forget to chime in. Requests regarding product information, questions, comments… I look forward to it.
I have shared with you the importance of using Paraben free toothpaste; now it is about more than chemical free toothpaste… Oh no, and oh yes!
Steady Health stated, “As your mouth has contact with numerous types of bacteria, it can develop into a breeding ground for all sorts of nasty germs.” If you take Probiotic’s this is still important information, and if you don’t, please let me know, as I will be writing accurate information about why it is so valuable to take them and including a list of quality products. Now back to your mouth…
I have done research on dental plaque and how much serious damage it can have on ones body. Several studies have found that Heart disease risk and inflammatory disease are linked due to the neglect of oral hygiene. In addition, the concern is more than a cavity or two. Dr. Kowolik said that if you get a bacterial infection anywhere in the body, billions of neutrophils come flooding out of your bone marrow to defend against the intruder; the inflammatory response to dental plaque could help us identify individuals who are at greater risk for infections anywhere in the body. This is including those affecting the heart, he said. Without good dental health, our bodies are at risk for bacterial infection; this creates a disadvantage to our immune systems’ ability to fight off such infections.
It is so simple to get up and floss, brush our teeth and get regular cleanings, yet it continues to be an on-going hurdle… I speak for myself when I say I (too sadly) need the motivation after an exhausting day to be rigid with my dental health. The pillow calls my name louder than then floss does. Please heed this warning, though, and think not only of your gums, but your body. Getting infections from not brushing my teeth, enough is not a place I want to be! Heart Disease is the number one killer in women, so besides telling your kids to floss and brush, women please remember to take care of your fabulous selves!
Dental Care is expensive. However, did you know that many of the local colleges have excellent Dental schools and prices that are adjustable? UCLA, for example, has an excellent Dental school. Dr. Peter Moy, who is internationally known, is also an adjunct associate professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery in the Division of Diagnostic & Surgical Sciences at the UCLA School of Dentistry. He also serves as the director of the UCLA Dental Implant Center and the Straumann Surgical Dental Clinic.
If you do not live in Los Angeles, please check out your cities Dental College for quality care and lower prices.
Please send me a comment on this article. Have you been to UCLA Dental College or a Dental School in your State?

BEAUTY TO LAST A LIFETIME!
April 11, 2010 by parabenfree 1 Votes
DID YOU KNOW? The underbelly of Parabens…
60% of products such as lotions, shampoos, lipsticks, powders, deodrant, shaving creme… are absorbed into your body and mimic your body’s hormones.
Natural does not always mean naturally good for you! Yesterday I was at the grocery store. I saw what is considered a natural sunscreen. Alba Botancia states that is is a chemical free sunscreen, noting on the front of the bottle, that it contains not harmful chemicals. Although their intentions may be good, their product label is misleading. Alba Botanica sunscreen lotions contain Titanium dioxide. What is Titanium Dioxide?
Titanium dioxide is a white powder like mineral. Chemically processed, it provides a pure white pigment that is odorless and absorbent. Additional to sunscreen and deodrant, TD can be found in food, cosmetics, vitamins and paint!
There are mixed views regarding Titanium Dioxide. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently classified Titanium dioxide as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ”possibly carcinogen to humans”… This evidence showed that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal instillation*. (Naturalnews.com)\
THE FACTS: Natural does not always mean it is good for you. Check your labels and decide for yourself.
As far as sunscreen’s go, The Environmental Working Group has identified the following ingredients are harmful to human health. Octocrylene. PABA, Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC), Benzophenone-3, 4-methyl-benzylidene and camphor (4-MBC). Homosalate
Women – Deodrant: I have looked LONG & LONGER to find a deodrant that had a pleasant smelled, WORKED, and was pure of toxins. The deodrant I use is HUGO NATURALS, Dual-action Formula – Sea Fennel & Passionflower. Purchased at Whole Foods.
This blog will be filled with new information about paraben free, natural, organic products, events, beauty, fashion, green style, food, wine, health… AND YOU! Stay Tuned & Definitely Chime In!
