I purchased this on sale, it was half price and I wanted something light for summer. This a a great product! It goes on well and is not oily like some moisturizer can be. I also look for creams, cleansers and exfoilators that are free of parabens and other chemicals. I will purchase this again and have recommended it to my friends who also are looking for a lightweight cream.
I have moderate acne and have had it for years, tried every product on the shelf to get rid of it, and have to resort to using prescription creams that burn the skin. Marcelle's DD Cream is the only thing that I can wear that doesn't make the acne worse, it hydrates my skin and keeps it from peeling from the prescription and it keeps it protected from UV rays (the prescription makes me more prone to burning). It is water-based, so it doesn't clog the pores and I can even wear the monochromatic pressed powder over it without it feeling too heavy or clogging my pores. I absolutely love this product! I use it every day and the coverage is good, but light enough that it doesn't look caked on.
I've tried so many BB/CC creams but I don't want parabens which is hard to find in something that's not specialty. I also avoid Oxybenzone which is also a difficult product to find without this cancer-causing agent. And this is the only cream that doesn't turn my face a weird orangey colour which I found out is an oxidation-type reaction that the oils in my skin have with most foundations/BB/CC creams. I have oily/acne-rpone skin but I'm in my 40s so I also need moisturization and wrinkle defense. This is it - this is the one!
I've always been a Marcelle client since I was 15 years old and I still use the products. I've bought this 8 in 1 serum and it's just amazing! A little goes a long way, doesn't feel sticky or oily, spreads evenly on my skin and leaves it soft & silky. In just a few days, I've noticed a difference in my skin. Looks much more even tone & a healthy glow! I will recommend to everyone I know for sure!! Try it out for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
