MyChelle Dermaceuticals Cranberry Mud Mask Review
In case you may have not noticed, I am a total mask addict! I see a mask and I want to try it out, no matter if I already have 3 other masks that promote similar benefits. It takes a lot of self control not to open all of them at once so I can test them. Sometimes the inner skincare addict takes control and goes crazy opening them all. I need a name for that second personality.
One day I was shopping for some items on iherb.com for cleaning supplies and came across MyChelle skincare. Straight away I pressed ‘Add to Cart’ for the mask. After trying it I’m sorry I didn’t purchase more products from this line. I will add it to my wish list for later purchase.
I am still working my way through this mask and the trillion other ones I have in my stash.
What it is
This is a Cranberry Mud Mask is designed for oily skin and blemish control. Drawing out blemish causing impurities. While detoxifying and soothing.

Directions to use
Above is the recommended way to use it but I don’t follow any rules and do my own thing. That’s me living my Skincare Thug Life. Hey I like that, I need to hashtag it, I should’ve made that my blog name! #skincarethuglife
How I use it
After I have done my 2 cleanses I spray a little toner on my face and then apply a layer of mask.
I like to spray a little toner before, during and after clay masks so it doesn’t dry out too much. I think this process helps so that I can still move my face instead of being clay mask frozen. We’ve all been there!
I leave it on for about 20-ish minutes before washing off and follow up with my skin prep before I apply a sheet mask.
Now taking the mask out of the tube is where I have a problem. The applicator is so tiny and makes it incredibly hard to get the product out.
I have to squeeze the bottle really hard and in return it only releases such a tiny amount, smaller than a pea size amount. I had this problem from the first time I used it, so it’s not that the bottle is empty or the product is dried out. Which has happened to me before with other clay masks that are in a tube.
Once you get enough out of the bottle it glides on very easy and has a pleasant smell.
Washing the mask off is super easy and one of the easiest clay mask to remove that I have ever tried. The Cranberry extract is one of the “super fruits” that has a high antioxidant content, helps support skin and give it a luminescent glow.
Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. Antioxidants in skincare products help combat the elements responsible for signs of aging, wrinkles, help to calm skin, reducing inflammation and revitalize dull skin.
I really love this mask, it really makes my skin look clear and really soft after I have use it. I notice when I move on to my next step of applying the toner I can feel it reach deep into my pores. My skin has a mattifying effect , which is always a great thing for us oily skinned peeps!
MyChelle also has a couple of other lines that are specially mad for dry/normal/sensitive and for men.
Yes! I just wish that the applicator to get the product out was fixed. I have to use a bit more elbow grease just to take out the product.
I believe they have upgraded their packaging so maybe this may be updated as well.
I purchased it from iherb.com for about $30 AUD and it came with free shipping along with some other products I purchased.
