Meet Our Customer: Cancer Survivor and Warrior...April Shattuck-Mickles!

Every day, we are amazed by the stories our customers share with us about their skin care journey and how cocokind has helped them. This week, we launched our Real Skin campaign and talked to April Shattuck-Mickles, a 47-year-old cancer survivor. Thank you April for inspiring us and telling us your story. It’s customers like you that keep us going every day!

What is your name and age?

My name is April Shattuck-Mickles and I am a 47-year-old cancer survivor.

What problems have you faced with your skin?

My ongoing health issues, including surgery, induced early onset menopause, frequent hot flashes, restless sleep patterns, physical effects of prescription medications, and an increased sensitivity to sun.

In addition, prior to my cancer journey, I was a sun fanatic growing up in a climate of hot summers on the water and poolside, outdoor winter snow activities, and harsh early spring winds in a region with 280 days of sun! As much as I have spent the latest 12 years protecting my skin from the sun, in recent months I have noticed age spots and an uneven, dull areas appearing on my face, neck and hands.

How has cocokind helped you and what is your favorite product?

Cocokind has absolutely restored and recovered my natural glow while diminishing under the eye and crow feet lines, faded my age spots and renewed the suppleness I thought I’d lost after other products disappointed me over and over again.

I cannot thank cocokind enough! Despite my health concerns, I’m often complimented on how great my skin looks, told I look 10 years younger than I am, and increased my confidence as I age. The best part is knowing that my favorite product, the Organic Facial Repair Serum, is 100% organic, and that the changes I’ve experienced have been produced by all-natural ingredients, not chemicals that wear off or are cosmetically altering.

Thank you, Priscilla, for putting me in a cocokind state of mind!
