Back at the beginning of the year, I received a little package of goodies. Inside, was this brand spanking new cleanser for me to try out.
Seeing as we are getting close to the end of the year…I thought it was about time I got around to writing about it!
So today we have the Marcelle Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel.
Housed in a sleek white bottle, and a great pump. It only costs $12.95, and yet it is a massive size for a cleanser!
Some great things about this, is that it is recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association, is oil free, paraben free, gluten free, 100% hypo-allergenic…You can find more info about it on their website.

So what do I think?
I really liked this a lot during the few times we had really hot weather. I could come home and rinse the makeup off my skin, without having to feel like I was drying it out by washing it again in the evening. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight, which agrees with their point that it preserves the moisture barrier. The one thing it needed extra help with, was waterproof makeup. In the pictures u there, the remaining makeup, after rubbing the product on my hand for 20 seconds, was the waterproof stuff. Waterproof is generally stubborn, so I would resort to a double cleansing method.
On thing to note. I have a latex allergy, and thus my eyelids are quite gentle (they swell up if I use latex anything really :T). I assume because of that, when I use this product on my eyelids, I have a slightly minty sensation. It isn’t a burn, and it doesn’t hurt in any way, but thought I would note that as a heads up for those who might have a similiar type of reaction to latex on the eyelids in general.
