I love this stuff! This stuff dries very quickly to a matte finish and does keep my face oil free for hours. I have been using this stuff for a few months and I can tell I am really going to love this in the summer months. This product is now a must have for me and I will continue to purchase it. If you have oily skin this is a must try/
Great for sensitive skin. Light and not at all oily
My go-to face cream.a friend recommended marcelle to me because my skin was breaking out whatever I used. That was 28 yrs ago. I have used the new types when they come out. Yay Marcelle!
Like many acne victims out there, I am willing to try just about anything that claims to help with skin tone and avoid those annoying pimples. So I gave the Marcelle 3-step system a try. I love it...separately.
All those products together really dry out my skin and produce more pimples which is what I am fighting to get rid of. So I use them separately and everything is great with the world yet again. This moisturizing lotion I use at night, after I wash my face with a mild soap (dove). I find that it doesn't over dry my skin the way it used to when using the other Marcelle products. The only downside is that I have a hard time finding this almost everywhere and have to order online.
I really wanted to love this last step in Marcelle's AC-Solution line but I just couldn't. It has a lot of great things about it including that it's oil free, it helps maintain a matte look, it's hypo-allergenic, and it's designed to reduce breakouts. The problem is the second ingredient in this moisturizer: ALCOHOL. Ugh. I used this moisturizer as the third step in the Marcelle AC-Solution system for a couple of months despite the fact that there was such a high level of alcohol in it for two reasons. First, my skin tends to be oily and I was desperate to dry it out, and second it seemed like it was really helping with my complexion. Although this moisturizer did dry me out, it probably did more harm than good. My skin is a little sensitive on top of being oily and this moisturizer made the area around my nose and on my cheeks red, dry and itchy. After about a month of using this my skin seemed to fight back against the drying effect by producing even more oil.
Although I had minimal breakouts while using Marcelle's AC Solution, I wouldn't recommend using this "moisturizer". If you have acne prone skin but it's not terribly oily (like mine) I would imagine this would be far too drying. It's also quite irritating so if your skin is sensitive I'd stay away. I would suggest swapping out a different moisturizer if you want to try Marcelle's AC-Solution system as the cleanser and toner are great!
