Marcelle BB Cream


BB Creams have taken over the beauty world. I have already expressed my skepticism about BB Creams. In my opinion, BB Creams are basically tinted moisturizers.
I used to offer a tinted moisturizer at Little Goddess Cosmetics. It was sheer coverage, chock full o' antioxidants and ingredients that just made your skin feel damn happy! Plus, it had a high SPF, basically a BB Cream. I think the only difference between a tinted moisturizer and a BB Cream is some BB's have anti-acne properties (I'm sure some tinted moisturizers do as well) and they have more of a primer like consistency. 
Let me be very clear, it's not that I don't like the actual product of a BB Cream, I do not like the fact that the cosmetic companies are marketing the BB Cream as something new and never done before, especially since from what I understand, the US BB Creams are nothing like the Asian BB creams that started this craze. Now they are selling CC and DD creams! AND a big name hair company has created the first ever BB Cream for your hair! Really? Sigh.
With all of that being said, I have found a BB Cream (or a tinted moisturizer, whatever you want to call it) that I love! Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow is perfect for a summer day. Keep in mind, this product does not contain SPF so you need to protect accordingly. This cream is not heavy coverage, it works best on clear, blemish free skin. It does give your skin a healthy golden glow while evening out skin tone and masking imperfections.
According to the website, it is an "8 in 1 BB Cream" and a"complexion illuminator".

-gives skin an instant glow.
-evens out skin tone.
-offers immediate and long term hydrating benefits to the skin.
-protects skin from premature aging and environmental stresses.
-soothes and calms the skin.
-reduces the appearance of imperfections.
-controls shine.

This cream is fragrance free, paraben free and oil free. 
If you want to try a BB Cream (or a tinted moisturizer), this is a good one to try!

Let me know what you think!
