[Review] Chanel CC Cream

A lovely ex-colleague gave this to me and I was pretty eager to try it. And it’s my first luxury make up brand CC cream. If you had been following my CC cream reviews, you would notice that I had managed to try out a variety of Korean brands only. A short extract taken from the Chanel website: With its CHANEL signature, CC Cream combines 5 actions in 1 single step:

SOOTHES. Cornflower water comforts sensitive skin.
MOISTURIZES. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain hydration level all day long by trapping and retaining moisture inside the skin.
PROTECTS. SPF 30 and PA+++ sun filters block aging-accelerating UVA-UVB rays. A mineral filter guarantees higher tolerance on the skin.
PREVENTS. An active ingredient of natural origin, Rejuvencia, provides the best shield against external aggressions.
EVENS OUT IMPERFECTIONS. Redness, dark spots and pores are visibly diminished.

Within moments, skin appears flawless and glows with a natural beauty. The complexion is visibly even-toned, fresh and radiant. CC Cream delivers complete correction and natural-looking, long-wear makeup. An ideal cream for day-long confidence with a lightweight, non-oily, comfortable texture.

If I’m not wrong, its available in one shade only – 20 beige

There is a strong scent, not sure if that’s the smell of cornflower water? Upon application, it turns matt instantly. In fact, it was so quick that I was worried I won’t have time to do my entire face without it drying up on my palms.

In terms of coverage, I would say it’s average. Which is a good thing for those who prefer something light or have pretty great-looking skin to begin with. Those who like me, have these crazy dark eye rings, broken capillaries and blemishes might not find the coverage sufficient. Hence, a concealer is recommended to be used together with the Chanel CC Cream.

Like the other CC creams I have tried, the Chanel CC cream does not disappoint with it comes to achieving that radiant glow.

If you ask me, I still would prefer The Face Shop’s CC Cream due to the coverage it provides. However, this one does not pale out in comparison much, I guess it would have worked better on me if I had a blemish-free complexion (which I unfortunately do not have).
