COMING SOON: First Canadian-Made BB Cream!

BB Cream has been the talk of the cyber-world for a while now amongst make-up artists and beauty-lovers alike.

For those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, BB Cream apparently works wonders for your skin. {I say apparently because I have yet to try it for myself! 🙂 }

No, BB doesn’t stand for Blackberry (in this case lol)! 😛
It stands for Blemish Balm (or Blemish Base, Beauty Balm — there are quite a few different meanings).

First developed by a dermatologist in Germany,  BB Cream was created to treat and soothe the skin of laser-surgery patients as well as to help cover-up scars and blemishes. It then made its way to Asia where many Asian celebrities have been using  this product to achieve flawless looking skin — this is how the BB cream craze skyrocketed. 

Now, BB Cream has made its way to our side of the world! Sold in specialty stores in the United States, BB Cream will soon be easily available to all you Canadians at a drugstore near you.  

MARCELLE will be introducing the first Canadian-made BB Cream available in-stores on  
February 6, 2012!
Retails for $22.95 (45 mL)

There are different BB Creams out in the market right now some have skin whitening attributes, anti-aging properties, SPF protection, etc.  The skin whitening and brightening attribute is more popular in the Asian market as they find lighter skin is more beautiful and relates to success. However, in Canada and the US, skin whitening isn’t as important as skin treatment. So you’ll find BB Creams will have more anti-aging and SPF properties.

What benefits does the Marcelle BB Cream have?

It’s a moisturizer, foundation, and primer in one!!

Here is some information from the press release I received for Marcelle’s BB Cream:

  • Comes in two shades but has self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to your skin tone.
  •  Oil-free and paraben free
