It’s so rare for me not to like a Chanel beauty product, that it’s more or less unheard of… can you sense the ‘but’ coming?! I just don’t feel that the new, updated formula of Chanel CC Cream is for me. Compared to say, Clinique’s new BB for oilier skin types, the formula feels quite thick and heavy on the skin. The Chanel CC Cream is SPF50, which is all well and good, but I’d opt every time for a more fluid formula that has a slightly less high SPF. I would say it does actually feel more like a sunscreen than a CC.

On the plus, there is a bit of a glow to this – and an infusion of hyaluronic means that skin stays hydrated throughout the day. On the skin care side, peach extracts and marine extracts give anti-oxidant protection. Coverage wise, Chanel CC Cream is light; I don’t notice a huge amount of concealing and although there are new shade selections (up to B40), I know there are better BB and CC creams out there. Chanel CC Cream is £44 when it launches later this month.
