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!
