When it comes to skincare expectations, we’re really after three things: effective ingredients, a do-it-all mandate and, over time, real, totally noticeable results. With Canadian beauty brand Marcelle’s newest launch—the 2% Hyaluronic Acid + Probiotic Serum—it’s check, check, check on our beauty wish list.

Let’s dive into the clean, cruelty-free formula. It all starts with two percent pure hyaluronic acid, the gold standard in hydration. Want super-smooth, plump skin in the short term and the long term? This naturally occurring ingredient is key, especially when it’s packed in at such a high concentration. Next is niacinamide, again at a powerful two percent dose. This multi-tasking form of vitamin B3 takes on a bevy of impactful tasks minimizing redness, evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles—to keep you glowing at all angles. Finally, Marcelle makes use of probiotic elements in its sensitive-skin-tested serum. A buzzy on-the-rise ingredient in the world of skincare, probiotics help balance out the good bacteria on your skin, leading to a stronger microbiome that’s able to ward off unwanted effects. (Think dryness and premature aging.)

Sounds like a 360-degree approach to luminous, supple skin, right? Fortunately, you can use the 2% Hyaluronic Acid + Probiotic Serum over your entire face—neck and eye area included. And if you’re wondering whether Marcelle’s latest offering gets the pros’ stamp of approval, it definitely does. This highly considered product comes recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association, thanks, in part, to its fragrance-free and hypoallergenic formula.

Now for the results*: After just a single application, wrinkles and fine lines are immediately filled with its next-level hydrating action. Four weeks of use yields even more impressive outcomes. The highlights? Smoother, more comfortable-feeling skin with improved firmness all over the face. What’s more, over 90 percent of participants in a study said they noticed an improvement in their skin’s overall appearance. Hello, fresh, makeup-ready complexion!
