A while back I had the opportunity to try out the MyChelle Oil Free Grapefruit Cream. I used this as a night time moisturizer, after applying a serum.

This moisturizer comes in a pump packaging, which I appreciate. I hate jars, so it’s nice that I don’t have to worry about getting moisturizer under my nails. It also keeps the product stable.
This moisturizer did not irritate my sensitive, rosacea skin. It’s got a nice texture, but it has a strange medicine-like smell. If you’ve got oily skin, this will probably give you the right amount of moisture without making you feel greasy. For my skin, which is combination (oily t-zone, normal to dry cheeks), It wasn’t moisturizing enough, so after using it for a few nights I had to mix in an additional moisturizer with this product so that I didn’t wake up with dry cheeks.
