Choosing the Right Skin Enhancer – $300 #MarcelleMoms Giveaways

Aging skin is beautiful but tired and uneven skin is something many of us ladies could do without. We can’t do much about genetics and it’s probably too late for those of us with skin damage but even for those of us who are blessed with somewhat flawless skin, at some point we would all like a little glow back.


Marcelle Skin Enhancers


How to Choose the Right Skin Enhancer

There are so many options available on the market, enough to make your head spin. Learning about the products you are using before purchasing is important to know which product is right for your skin before you buy. Marcelle’s CC Skin Enhancer Cream is my absolute favourite but there are 3 skin enhancers to choose from to match every skin type. If you are looking for a lighter more natural coverage with hydration properties, the Marcelle BB cream is the right choice for you. Regular exposure to the elements, such as sun, wind, allergens or other irritations calls for the Marcelle DD cream with protection and hydration properties. For most of us, at my age, coverage and correction to signs of aging, sun or dark spots and uneven tones, Marcelle’s CC cream is the perfect choice.





Marcelle’s BB Cream is a multi-purpose skin care cream for all ages and all skin types which 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 three shades and is suitable for a wide variety of complexions thanks to its self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to skin tone. BB Cream is hypo-allergenic and perfume free. Suitable for all ages and skin types.


C·C CREAM = Complete Correction

Marcelle’s C·C CREAM offers the same benefits as BB Cream, but with more long-term skin care benefits and nourishing ingredients. It perfects uneven skin tone and helps reduce dark spots. Its pure 24K gold infused formula provides deep radiance, more coverage and a lighter texture than BB Cream leaving your skin smoother, firmer and deeply moisturized.

Pure 24K gold has been infused into Marcelle’s Complete Correction Cream to diminish the appearance of dark spots and skin tone imperfections that can be caused by sun exposure or the aging of skin. The formula’s lightweight consistency and ingredients provide full coverage and leaves your skin feeling smoother, firmer and highly moisturized. Radiance is boosted to give your complexion a perfect glow! With SPF 35.


D·D CREAM = Daily Defense

Going beyond a BB Cream, Marcelle’s D·D CREAM is an all-in-one tinted cream that not only corrects but really protects your skin against pollution, stresses, and UVB rays.

With its platinum-infused formula, Marcelle’s DD Cream reinforces skin’s natural defences and improves the overall appearance of skin by reducing impurities. Its powerful ingredients make it a fearsome shield against environmental aggressors such as pollution, stresses, and UVB rays. With SPF 25.




Beauty Routines Start with a Good Cleanser


I had a bit of reluctance about showing my blank palette selfie, as all you tired ladies can understand, but I’m proudly showing it off to show you the incredible benefits of how a lightweight skin enhancer can make all the difference, one product can even out your skin tone and give you that youthful glow back. Check out my before and after selfie above to see the difference, before the Marcelle CC Cream Skin Enhancer and after. Boom.


My beauty routine starts with the right cleanser, Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel, which doubles as the ultimate family skin care regimen. This cleanser is all you need for the entire family; it’s safe enough for all ages to use, can be used wet or dry and has hydrating properties of it’s own. What I love best about this cleanser is that I can pop it into my bag for the family swim for the teens and I to wash eye makeup off before jumping in the water and after to clean off any harsh pool chemicals, one product for the whole family.




Next up in my skin care routine is the New-Age 8 in 1 Power Serum, a favourite anti-aging product that helps to form a smooth and radiant base before my skin enhancer application. The serum helps to smooth, brighten, create a more uniform complexion with hydration properties for a light non-greasy feel. After my very first application of the serum I noticed an immediate improvement in my skins softness but after time I’ve noticed an added glow to my skin; this product is definitely one that adds benefits to your skin over usage. Additionally, I have a multiple skin type t-zone, oily on my nose and dry on my forehead which creates a challenge when choosing skin care products. I have found the serum solves my challenges in this area.


My next step in my makeup routine is the BB Roll-on Concealer under my eyes and any blemishes or spots I want to hide. This concealer adds to the 8-in-1 line, correcting and highlighting in just the right places. After 5 pregnancies and the joys of fluctuating hormones, add in age, I have dark spots I am not too happy with. For me, this is like the miracle stick; it brightens my eye area for a more youthful and radiant look. I then squirt a small amount of CC cream onto my finger to dab on my face, massaging and blending into my skin for even coverage. I dab and blend a little extra onto any spots that need extra coverage and finish off with a Marcelle Face Powder to even out my skin, rid myself of any shine and create the perfect base for my eye, cheek and lip makeup. This entire routine takes me less than 5 minutes.
