Review: Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Moisturizing Gel-cream for Dry Skin

Price: 22.95$ for 1.8 OZ / 50 mL

What is it?

Gentle, effective treatment for moisture starved skin.
Especially designed for dry and dehydrated skin, it soothes that tight, uncomfortable feeling plus fights the visible signs of ageing. This gel-cream deeply moisturizes the skin for 24 hours.

We’ve added key active ingredients to this nourishing gel-cream that restore and maintain the skin’s lipidic and moisture barrier, and provide it with its daily ration of essential oils and amino acids. Aloe extract and Shea butter heal and sooth while the dynamic duo of vitamins C and E protects against free radicals.

Hypo-allergenic and perfume free.

Ideal for dry skin.

The claims:
Especially formulated for dry skin, it nourishes and calms tight, dry skin. It provides it with essential moisturizers and oils to re-establish its lipidic barrier. Its non-greasy formula is quickly absorbed and leaves your skin feeling cool and refreshed. 
 How to use:
Apply on a clean face using fingertips. Massage upwards and in circular motions making sure to avoid fragile eye area. Then, apply over neck and chest with the same circular motions in a downwards movement. Use morning and night.

  • light texture perfect for day wear 
  • instantly absorbed into skin
  • makes skin feels fresh
  • a little goes a long way
  • non-greasy
  • when you rub or scratch your skin, little gel residues fall off (?!?)
  • it's recommended to it use morning and night, but it's not heavy enough for a night cream
  • expensive!

What I think:

This is my first experience with a Marcelle skin care product, and I'm pretty happy with it. At first, I was skeptical that a gel-cream would cure my dry skin, but if it didn't heal it completely, it definitely helped it a lot. But as it's a gel-cream, I would recommend this for summer as it might not be moisturizing enough for the harsh winter's weather. I would totally repurchase it, if only it was less expensive!

Repurchase or recommend? yes

Rating: ★★★/5
