Chanel CC Cream

What they say: CC CREAM

CORRECTS. SOOTHES. MOISTURISES. PROTECTS. PERFECTS. 5 ACTIONS IN A SINGLE STEP

CORRECTS. A complex of Prunus persica peach extract, an anti-ageing ingredient specific to CHANEL, stimulates the skin’s natural defences against surrounding pollutants and improves its regenerating functions. Signs of aging are corrected. Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed.

SOOTHES. A natural marine extract acts on the surface and inside the epidermis to comfort skin.

MOISTURISES. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain optimal hydration levels all day long by retaining moisture inside skin.

PROTECTS. SPF 50/PA++++ sunscreens block UVA-UVB rays that accelerate skin aging.

PERFECTS. Coated pigments, selected for their hold, uniformity and affinity with skin, immediately reduce the appearance of redness, dark spots and enlarged pores for a fresh and natural makeup result.

Chanel

What I say: Okay, so I’m not going to lie – I always squeal like a little girl when a Chanel press drop lands on my desk. Who wouldn’t, right?

But this was a very special drop as I knew it contained the SPF50 version of their CC Cream.

This really is like Photoshop in a tube. I’ve yet to find anything that covers my skin with this opacity that doesn’t look like a chalky mask. The SPF50 version is just amazing, and it manages to protect the skin without looking ashy.

The skincare benefits also live up to the promises. My skin looks and feels healthier after a day of wearing it than it does first thing in the morning.

The packaging, as always with Chanel, is well thought out and understated. The tube is the best way to contain the cream, and makes it very easy to work with.

It will be available in 3 shades (Beige 20, Beige 30 and Beige 40) at all Chanel counters from tomorrow.
