Marcelle Hydra C Cleanser + Moisturizer

I received the Marcelle Hydra C cleanser and lotion a while back to test. The Hydra C line, according to Marcelle, is "enriched with a unique vitamin C & E complex that revitalizes the skin, bringing back its radiance and vitality."

The products are also notably hypoallergenic and perfume free, which I like!

Packaging
The cleanser comes with a self foaming pump, and is packaged in a sturdy eye catching orange bottle. However the packaging may have been changed lately as the product on the website has a lighter colour.

Performance
I always use a cleansing oil before face wash, so I couldn't review the makeup removing properties. As a face wash though the foam cleanses well. It is supposed to suit all skintypes, but I felt that it was a little drying if used twice daily. I switched to using it once a day, in warmer weather and it was ok then.

Price
CA $13.50 for 5.5 FL OZ / 165 mL

Overall
Convenient everyday face wash, but best suited for oily skintypes.

Packaging
Comes in a hygenic pump bottle, which is clear so you can easily track the usage.

Performance
The lotion dispenses as a lightweight pale orange lotion.

I found the lotion to be hydrating and light at the same time. However, what I didn't like was that it left my skin feeling a bit oily and looking shiny. Also this lotion does contain some silicones, which some people might choose to avoid.

Price
CA $22.95 for 1.6 FL OZ / 50 mL

Overall
It has a great lightweight texture, but unlike the cleanser, this lotion seems best suited for dry to normal skintypes.
