BB, now CC! Yes it’s true-Marcelle has come out with a CC cream. I picked this up at my local Rexall and have used it several times.
From the box:
Infused with pure 24k gold, CC cream is a lightweight texture tinted cream that diminishes the appearance of dark spots and skin tone imperfections that can be caused by sun exposure or the aging of skin.
CC cream can replace these products from your daily routine:
Powerful moisturizer: helps protect skin from dryness and improve its appearance.
Tinted corrector: corrects skin imperfections and evens out skin tone.
Make up Base: helps hold your make-up all day.
Sunscreen: protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.
May be worn alone, or after your day cream, and/or before your usual foundation for more coverage.
Nice box and packaging-with a pump delivery system. The CC cream itself is a tad thicker than foundation but not ‘heavy’ if that makes any sense. Here it is on my hand:
This is a smooth cream that applies well to skin. I used it with a primer. Coverage is light to medium. I used a pressed powder compact with SPF to add more coverage to my t-zone where I have hyperpigmentation. The cream has a light fragrance but nothing heavy and it doesn’t stick around. Here’s how it looks when blended.
Overall I do like this product quite a bit. It provides a decent amount of coverage and feels light on the skin. Time will tell if my dark spots diminish over time but I’m not holding my breath and not concerned about it. This product earns a thumbs up from me and I suggest you go pick it up or at least try it at your local drugstore!
