Marcelle does BB Cream Eh!

January 14, 2012
As I have mentioned in my Marcelle & Annabelle Beauty Premiere post (read it here), one of the most exciting launches for Spring 2012 from Marcelle is indeed their BB Cream.  I'm obsessed over BB Cream, I've tried maybe 10 of those, and I don't think I'm going to stop here!  This is definitely a must-try for me, because it is the first Canadian BB Cream, which makes it awesome (proudly Canadian LOL).

From the press release, this BB Cream is supposed to be a "Multi-tasking Skin Enhancer".  Not only there are multiple ways to use it (as a moisturizer, as a light foundation over moisturizer, and as a makeup base for extra staying power), there are also multiple benefits from using the Marcelle BB Cream!  Let's take a look what Marcelle has to say for this brand new product!

Marcelle® proudly introduces the first Canadian-made BB Cream formulated specially for Canadian women in pharmacies as well as mass retail stores! The Marcelle® BB Cream will be in stores on February 6, 2012.

Inspired by a trend that perfected skin and enhanced complexions all over Asia, Marcelle® formulated its own BB Cream to cater the needs of Canadian consumers. 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. Ideal for any age and any skin type, the Marcelle® BB Cream comes in two shades and is suitable for a wide variety of carnations thanks to its self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to skin tone.
What’s a BB?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.
We have also seen the expressions Blemish Base, Blemish Balm and Beauty Base.
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. 
THE MULTI-TASKING SKIN ENHANCER!BB Cream embellishes the skin of the girl who requires a basic moisturizer, it unifies the carnation of the woman who is looking to hide a few blemishes and it provides the ultimate coverage to the make-up user who follows it with her usual foundation! BB Cream takes on the role you want it to play!

  1. oh wow I did not know this BB cream was paraben-free! because that's all I use now! so definitely will give this a try. I've never actually tried any BB creams before, didn't even know what they were really lol so glad I read this! thank you! :) xx

  2. I'm a huge BB Cream fan, but like you said, one great thing about this is that it's Paraben free, and most BB Creams aren't... at least the Asian ones that I have tried are not.  I will definitely update you guys after I test it out!
