Marelle BB Cream Review and FOTD

By Friday, January 27, 2012 , , ,

A few posts ago I posted a little product info on Marcelle's new BB Cream. I was lucky enough get sent a tube of it before its official launch. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now every single day.

Your ultimate skin care enhancer for all ages and skin types, this multi-purpose skin care cream is more than a tinted moisturizer or simple make-up base. It perfects the skin to reveal a more even epidermis and well-hydrated, flawless complexion, all in one. Use it alone as a tinted moisturizer; over your moisturizer to unify your complexion and reduce the appearance of blemishes, or apply as a make-up base under foundation for total coverage and improved stay-on power. BB Cream is offered in two shades and is suitable for a wide variety of complexions thanks to its self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to skin tone. 
After more than two weeks of using it I can say I truly love it. I use it the same way I always used a tinted moisturizer and love the constancy and coverage.
If I do plan on wearing a foundation, it makes a great primer with the added benefit of good base of colour and it completely evens out my skin before the foundation. This means I need less foundation, or simply just  bit of concealer.

after skin. only bb cream on face.
no foundation, no concealer, no power.
there is lipstick, eyeliner and mascara.
For the most part it has been used instead of my moisturizer and tinted moisturizer. I've noticed it goes on smooth, there is no unevenness and my skin feels better after using it.
one pump
I do find it dryer than a tinted moisturizer though, which is a good thing for me. Sometimes when I use one I feel oily that day or that I need far to much to get any evenness and end up with way to much on.

after skin
  • easy to find in stores
  • fast easy coverage
  • good coverage
  • helps improve skin over time
  • makes a great primer
  • evens out my skin fast without leaving it greasy or using too much product
  • great pump
  • replaces moisturizer for some people
  • no is in the works.
Two pumps is all I need to cover my whole face and neck.
I really do love the stuff, it is the first BB cream I have ever used so I can't compare it to others or explain all its benefits that well. So I do apologies for that, but I feel we should let the photos do the talking here.

And yes, I have my hair and everything done in the after photos, I was getting ready for my day and obviously did not have my hair done in the first pictures and cannot leave it that way for work. As I said though, no foundation, no powder, no concealer...just Marcelle BB on my skin, and I love it.
