Got acne? Get lemongrass!
on September 8, 2009
This is a four-and-one-half star review rounded up to five for Amazon.
Mychelle Skin Care can be a very hit and miss line, but for their new acne product set they have scored a hit. The regimen begins with this lovely little cleanser. Free of the harsh detergents most acne cleaners sport and smelling like fresh lemongrass, this cleanser cleared off my makeup with ease and did not leave my skin dried out or achy. Mychelle uses totarol, a plant from New Zealand many times stronger than tea tree, to clear up gram positive and gram negative bacteria (it's also anti-viral!). Olive leaf, great internally for acne as well, supports the formula's anti-bacterial properties in a gentle, natural way. Amaranth protein is used instead of wheat protein, great news for those with wheat sensitivities (a common cause of persistent acne).
This product is a better gel than Mychelle's cranberry cleanser (which is a little drying) and better at removing makeup than their cream cleansers. There's a glut of natural acne products on the market now, but most of them use sulfur or large amounts of tea-tree, and you end up smelling like a medicine chest. This is one of the best acne cleansers I've used for teen or adult acne, and far better for your poor stressed skin than the chemical-laden drugstore or infomercial products. A great acne-care debut for Mychelle.
