BB Creams I can't wear, but you should try from Vichy, Marcelle and Clinique!

My love affair with BB Creams continues - they really are the perfect product for someone too lazy to bother with multiple products (me) so I have still been trying every one I can get my hands on! Sadly, the light-medium shade seems to be a norm and while it may be fine if you are a medium or a dark light, it's too dark for lights and light-lights so I live in hope that shade ranges will be extended! Here are a few that I love the sounds of, love the feel of and would love to wear if they made a light shade (or if I could find it):

Vichy ProEven BB Cream - 40ml - $35 - in two shades: Light-Medium and Medium-Dark - a new addition to the ProEVEN line is a paraben and fragrance free Beauty Benefits Cream, formulated with concealing mineral pigments and derivatives of hyaluronic acid as well as vitamins C + E it immediately works to even skin tone, boost radiance, conceal redness, flaws and imperfections, reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines and hydrate for 24 hours. Also nice is the SPF 20 to protect you from the sun and keep those dark spots from coming back!

Available at pharmacies and drugstores across Canada. For more info visit
Marcelle BB Cream Anti-Aging - 45ml - $28.95 - in two shades: Light to Medium and Medium to Dark - a lightweight paraben, perfume and oil free cream that offers 10 in 1 multi-benefits: makes skin look lifted; smoothes fine lines and wrinkles; improves skin tone; immediate and long-term hydrating benefits; protects skin from environmental stresses; strengthens the skin; controls skin; soothes and calms dry/damaged skin; reduces the appearance of imperfections; and provides anti-dull radiant complexion.

Available in drugstores and at
Clinique Perfecting BB Cream - 40ml - $40 - in three shades: 01 Very Fair (pink undertone); 02 Very to Moderately Fair (golden undertone); and 03 Moderately Fair to Medium (golden undertone) - with a lightweight fragrance and oil free formula which contains multi-polarized pigments to enhance skin's complexion with a medium to full coverage to blur imperfections without being too heavy for a naturally flawless look for skin that looks more perfected and even-toned and texture that feels smoother and softer.

A couple of the shades sound like they could be good for me but I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere! Sephora doesn't seem to have it on their Canadian site yet and the department store counters that I have checked don't seem to have it in yet. It was supposed to release in October but I guess it must have been delayed. Any sightings/opinions of it would be welcome!

  1. I like how Clinique's has SPF30. I'll be trying it if it matches my skintone.

  2. I have seen it at my Murale and at a Bay counter, the canadian version is called perfecting bb cream (unlike the photo here) and doesn't tell you how much spf is in it :( but titanium dioxide is an ingredient... odd.

    1. Thanks for the head's up, I will check out Murale! Yes the info is from a Canadian press release but I couldn't find a picture with the Canadian name. From what I understand, the regulations for sunscreen are so different in Canada from the US that a lot of the time they will just take the sunscreen advertising off the Canadian product but it still has the sunscreen ingredient inside. I've noticed on products before that I know have sunscreen in the US, here they just put a sticker on the bottle covering the SPF amount!

      Best, Lisamarie
