Marcelle Fall 2015 - Skin care

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I reviewed Marcelle Fall makeup products two weeks ago, now let's see what skin care products they launch this month :)

There's something irritated skin needs - the Ultra Gentle moisturizing cream.

Formulated to hydrate and soothe the skin, the product offers protection from dehydration and daily aggressors that can cause irritation while leaving the skin feeling soft and supple.

Now the product feels light on (more like a lotion than a cream as the name suggest), fast absorbing and does a great job to keep my skin hydrated and calm. I would say it is my basic moisturizer of choice during bad phase of breakouts, no big bells or whistles.

Seal on the nozzle, no contamination/ testing in stores.

Instructions say to apply the moisturizing cream in the morning on well cleansed skin, and I tested it that way. I do have other night creams to alternate but don't see why you can't use it before bed as well.

Ingredients: Water, Isopropyl Myristate, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Cetyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Allantoin, Stearamidopropyl Diemthylamine, Polysorbate 60, Lactic Acid, etc.

The cream is meant for normal to dry skin but it does not make my combination skin greasy through the day. Perfume/ oil/ paraben/ soap/ sulfate free. The tube is 1.7oz/ 50ml, $18.95.

Another product that tends to my eye makeup: the Instant eye makeup remover with a dual phase formula and enriched with aloe vera.

Let me just get it out there that this makeup remover is oil free and feels just like water on the skin.

So other than the "shake well before use" and "rinse with warm water" parts, I cannot tell the difference between this and micellar water when used on the eyes. They remove makeup with the same ease, comfort and efficiency, 95% on waterproof mascaras like most micellar waters on me.

Also tested it on some thicker long wear liquid lipsticks with about 90% success using one side of the cotton pad or 98% with both sides and some rubbing. No complaints there.

The standard cap and nozzle on the bottle work fine with cotton pads.

Ingredients: Water, Isohexadecane, Isopropyl Myristate, PEG-6 Caprylic/ Capric Glycerides, Poloxamer 184, Copper Gluconate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Benzoate, Sodum Salicylate, Sodium Citrate.

Suitable for contact lens wearers. Perfume/ oil/ paraben free. The bottle is 5oz/ 150ml, $14.95.

Left: the Ultra Gentle moisturizing cream with the lotion-y texture.

Right: the Instant eye makeup remover on a cotton pad, lightly blue-tinted liquid but goes on invisible.

No scent detected on either product.

All I have to say is Canadians are missing out in lots of things in the beauty world (Sephora sale page as the case in discussion) but not with makeup removers. Marcelle makes one of the best ones out there that I tried.


  1. I have to get some more Marcelle, as I'm out of my cleanser. I love aloe vera, I want to try that eye makeup remover. Thanks!

    1. Yes, I totally trust them with cleansers/ makeup removers
