Going a little off topic to start with - what do you think of this "style" of photography? I'd decided that I wanted to play with props for this review.. let me know what you think? Would it be something you'd want to see more/less of? [compared to my other photos]
MyChelle Dermaceuticals was founded in the year 2000, a brand dedicated to natural, cruelty-free products, some of which are also vegetarian and vegan friendly [see the full list here]. I have seen MyChelle products on various websites before such as Amazon; Feel Unique and BeautyBay, but I've always been reserved to purchase because I never know what I want and end up forgetting!

The lovely people at over at MyChelle must've been reading my deliberating mind one day and reached out to me, offering a couple of products to try for both my mum and I, one of which being the Apple Brightening Peel I'll be sharing my thoughts about today.

The Apple Brightening Peel* is essentially a 5 minute face mask aimed at those with the issue of age/dark spots from sun damage and UV-induced discolouration. I personally am not too sure whether I have age spots yet.. especially because I'm still quite young and have always been a sun-dodger. However, on my mum's side of the family, a couple of them have a skin condition, I think - whereby a range of faint and dark spots appear naturally. I'm not too sure about this "condition" and haven't been to see a dermatologist yet, but I'm pretty sure I've inherited it from my mum as I'm starting to see signs of it. My mum on the other hand, has never understood the concept of protective sun screen, now being in her late 40's she certainly claims that there's no point to start reversing the bad habit.

We have both been trialling the Apple Brightening Peel for a couple of weeks now, and it seems that my mum's been receiving slightly better results than I have - possibly because her discolouration is greater therefore being more noticeable at a glance compared to previously. Unfortunately she doesn't want to share her face on the internet otherwise I would have posted before/after photographs of the spots.
On myself, I haven't experienced any lightening/decrease in the first signs of discolouration on my skin, but immediately after using the Apple Brightening Peel I get a visible brightening effect which lasts for around an hour. The brighter look to my face isn't glowy, but more so of a natural "lit from within" appearance.

The Apple Brightening Peel is definitely a product I have been looking forward to using on my bi-weekly mini facial pamper sessions; the aspect I like most about it is the light, fragrant scent of fresh apples this has, with the strange, smooth apple-purée texture gliding across my skin coming at a close second. This mask becomes slightly sticky, but not clumpy on the skin when applied and is build-able. Out of all the other face masks I have used in the past, this is the only one that I really enjoy the application of, and it just feels really nice to smooth over a generous layer onto my skin.

From the streamlined 35ml squeezy tube we have here, I would reckon that a good 6/7 uses could be made, meaning that it would be around £3 per use, which isn't overly expensive for a face mask that provides immediate visible benefits. I'm not sure just yet as to whether this will be a potential life-saviour for my skin, but at the moment I have been really enjoying the company of the Apple Brightening Peel and I will most definitely purchase when it runs out.

The kind people over at MyChelle have also offered my readers a generous 20% off the entire Apple Brightening range, simply use "ANITA20" at the checkout until 20th June- any problems drop me a comment, email or tweet :)

  1. I think the key is spending a bit of time massaging your skin is key. I really, really need to up my game with my skin care. It doesn't exist and I look 1000!

  5. I'm probably not in serious need of it, but in my opinion although it the line is targeted for those with older/mature skin my mum and I have demonstrated that it's suitable for everyone :)

  7. I love props tbh--makes a photo generally more interesting. And, I love the quality of these photos, jussayin' ;)
    I've seen MyChelle products a few times on the drugstore site I frequent, but I've never actually tried anything from them. The texture of this sounds interesting, but that's one tiny squeeze tube!

  9. ahhhh thank you Vanessa! You have no idea how happy I am for you to say this aha :D
    The tubes are kinda small considering other similar products on the market come in big-ass tubes [i.e. Freeman's] but it's pretty decent for the price per use :)
