Price: CAD 22.95
Volume: 45ml
Shade: Light to Medium

Given that my skin is combination-dry and sensitive, I’m always game for extra hydration in my skin care and makeup products that won’t end up breaking me out into itchy patches; what if you could have all of that…all in one tube?

Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Marcelle Cosmetics’s 24hr Intense Moisture BB cream is the only product that is recognized by the Canadian Skin Dermatology Association. This product claims to “replace” 3 products from our beauty routine, the “lightweight moisturizer, tinted corrector and make-up base” and it has 8-in-1 benefits:

 

  • Evens out skin tone
  • Offers immediate and long-term hydrating benefits
  • Protects from premature aging and environmental stresses
  • Promotes skin regeneration
  • Controls shine
  • Soothes and calms
  • Reduces the appearance of imperfections

Having had a full run from when I first purchased this with the other Marcelle’s BB cream till now, I have to say that I’m more than excited to review this item. 🙂

Upon pumping out a dollop of the product onto my palm, I felt that the texture is creamy to the touch and great to smooth onto my skin. It is a little thicker than a regular tinted moisturizer but lighter than traditional BB creams from Korea. I must say though, I like this better on its own for the weekend when I just want to balance out my skin tone and light coverage; I find that the staying power is not as good as I thought it would be, especially around my blemishes, therefore I would use a little bit of this as a base before putting on my Revlon Colorstay foundation and concealer on areas that I need covering. The coverage is flawless yet lightweight. I’m completely in love with this hydrating and medium coverage combination 🙂

Seeing as I use this BB Cream during colder and drier months, I don’t have much of a problem with shininess as I feel that it adds an extra punch of hydration in addition to my skincare to keep my skin balanced. Much like the first Marcelle’s BB cream that I got, the pigmentation is what really made me a believer; most traditional BB creams end up too gray or leaning towards being too yellow for me, or making me break out altogether. This product blurs minor blemishes, pores and evens out my skin tone while giving me a healthy, natural glow. In terms of the packaging, it’s a hybrid of a squeeze tube with a pump so you are able to control the amount coming out as well as getting every last drop while also being hygienic 🙂 One aspect that I’d like to see Marcelle include in their BB creams would be a higher SPF option, as neither of tbe tubes that I purchased had any SPF included; the other BB/CC/DD creams in their product lines are also lacking in the sun care department 🙁

Since I’ve tried out their BB creams, I’m eyeing the Marcelle BB Roll-on Concealer for my (very) dry undereye area. 😀

I have jotted this down as one of the items to bring back to Hong Kong from my trip back to Vancouver in two weeks! <3
