Introducing Marcelle BB Cream

By Thursday, January 12, 2012 ,

Having no clue what a BB cream is, having never used one or what to even expect, I must say I had a few questions back at the Beauty Premiere event hosted by Marcelle/Annabelle back in the holiday season. 
I heard the rumour that they were launching one and was lucky enought to pick their brain about it back at the event.Now I had a whole bunch of questions since it just seemed so foreign to me, so now that I have the answers I thought  would share them with you before Marcelle launches their very own Canadian BB Cream.

What’s a BB?

We have also seen the expressions Blemish Base, Blemish Balm and Beauty Base. 

Moisturizing skin care, tinted corrector and make-up base all in one, Marcelle “BB” stands for Beauty Balm, as it truly enhances your natural beauty.

How to use 
the Marcelle BB Cream, in 3 different ways:
1) The Marcelle BB Cream is a day cream which should be applied after the skin has been properly cleansed as a corrective tinted moisturizer. For a more intense moisture surge, the BB Cream may be applied on previously moisturized skin.
2) Use it alone or over your moisturizer to unify your complexion.
3) Use it as a make-up base under foundation for total coverage and improved stay-on power.
This Beauty Balm with self-adjusting pigments, powerful antioxidants, aloe and chamomile does it all for your skin:
-Minimizes the appearance of imperfections and pores
-Evens out skin tone
-Provides an excellent make-up base and replaces primers
-Matifies skin and controls shine
-Offers immediate and long-term hydrating benefits
-Soothes and calms skins
-Protects from premature aging and environmental stresses
-Promotes skin regeneration

It perfects the skin to reveal a more even epidermis and well-hydrated flawless complexion, all in one.

-Ultra-lightweight formula leaves skin with “nothing on” feel
-Oil free                                   -Non comedogenic
-Paraben free                           -Dermatologist tested
-Hypo-allergenic                      -Perfume free
-Ultra-hygienic airless tube-pump

So now I understand what a BB is much better, and I must say I cannot wait to give this baby a try.
