It’s no secret that I’m a Chanel girl through and through – I’m genetically programmed to walk down Old Bond Street and do a sharp right straight through the doors of the store. More often than not its purely looking but every now and again I can’t resist a bag. Lucky then that Chanel’s beauty range is every bit as good as the hype – I haven’t yet found anything to match their nail polish in terms of shades and longevity, and creatively the make up is unmatched – and it doesn’t hit the bank balance nearly as hard as the handbags do! So, I’ll be really happy to splash £29 on the new UV Essential that provides SPF 50. It’s far more refined than a sunblock so it’s not right for the beach; it’s more an environmental and anti-pollution protection with a high SPF ensuring that sun exposure during, say your lunch hour, doesn’t leave lasting damage. It’s very light and absorbs to a matte finish, making it the perfect protective base for your tinted moisturiser. Plus it’s a very swanky accessory!
