About a month ago my best friend recomended the Chanel CC Cream to me. I gave it a go for a night out and I loved it! I found it gave a medium coverage, matched my skin tone so well, and it also really did colour correct!
The product is a thick, creamy consistency, and is quite heavily fragranced like most Chanel products. So if your skin is sensitive to scented products then this may be one to avoid. When purchasing the product the Chanel Sales Rep colour matched me, she recomended the shade 20 beige. I found this shade to be perfect for my skin tone, even when I am ‘au natural’, or tanned! It also has an SPF of 50.
I have redness prone skin that tends to be quite sensitive and dry, and I found that foundations didn’t cover up the redness and with the odd one that did it the redness began to show through after a few hours of wear. The CC cream works wonders for this. After using the cream for a few days, I began to notice that it dried my skin out a bit, which is probably the only negative that I found with it.
The price is another factor you may need to take into consideration. I bought the standard 30ml tube for £44. I’ll admit this will last you a long time as a little definitely goes a long way, however I would consider this a luxury purchase.
Over all I feel that the Chanel CC Cream is a brilliant product that colour correct, conceals and can be used as a brilliant base to makeup or for a fresh faced natural look.
