Summer Skin In A Bottle

Although I've already mentioned Chanels latest CC Cream more times in the past week than I've had pizza (woah there), I couldn't help but dedicate a whole page to it. Why? It's pretty much the perfect summer base in a (travel friendly) bottle and I haven't taken it out of my makeup bag for a good month now!

The latest CC release is luminous and lightweight, with a good dose of coverage. Unlike previous CC Creams it has a whopping SPF 50 (a blessing or a curse dependant on how you feel about added SPF) but still sits in the skincare division of the Chanel beauty range.

Everything about it lends itself towards summer use. The dewy sheen over the high points of the face that gives that "I've just been out playing in the sun" glow - even if you've been inside staring at a screen for the past eight hours. The high SPF factor that is perfect for when you do get to play outside in the sun and super light bottle that makes packing and traveling a breeze!

I currently use the shade 20 beige, but in a few months time I'll definitely need 30! The glow factor definitely lends itself towards use on dry/normal skin types, with oilier skins finding that things need a dose of primer/powder/both to keep things in place!


  1. This sounds amazing and your skin looks gorgeous! I have dry/normal skin and so I'm always looking for a product to make my skin look glowing and luminous but also with good coverage so will have to try this. Plus, loving the high SPF for summer! xx

  2. This makes you look (even more) flawless! I need to pick this up, such classic packaging too.

  9. I only wear CC creams so I will need to try this out. I don't tend to reach for high end products but I think I need to do it a lot more for a treat!

  12. I've been looking for a CC cream that will tackle redness and correct whilst matching my shade, and despite the price this sounds insane!

  13. I'm kind of over having to wear a proper foundation at the moment. When you're knee deep in looming final year University deadlines, I want to wear something to make me feel comfortable tapping away on my MacBook at a coffee shop, but am just not in the mood to spend a good 20-30 minutes or so perfecting a full on make-up routine. This sounds so, so perfect so no doubt next pay day it'll be sitting pretty in my make-up bag.

  21. Hi Suzie! Are there any BB/CC creams from the drugstore that you would recommend? :)

  22. Looks beautiful Suzie, so flawless! Will totally be a staple summer purchase, gorgeous x

  23. Sometimes I wish more of these products could be suited to oilier skins such as myself. I doubt I'll ever stray from my Bobbi Brown Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser though! It's the best!

  29. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff! Must buy for summer! Xo

  30. I've always found Chanel face products to be well worth their hefty price tag, looks like this fits the bill too!
    I'll definitely be checking this out for the summer, thanks for sharing!

  31. I currently use Chanel foundation which I love but this looks like a great daytime alternative!

  32. You can't go wrong with Chanel and your skin looks lovely!

  33. Wish I hadn't ugly acne scars, CC Creams are always a bit too light coverage for me!

  34. Summer is coming, and you had bette get a more protect for your skin.
