Chanel has a proven history with the double C-logo, and now they’ve also added a CC cream to their skincare collection.
For the kind of women who tend to be on the practical side when it comes to skincare (typical for the Dutch), CC creams -CC stands for Complete Correction- are a perfect solution. Simple, fast and easy to use because it is an all-in-one product.
Chanel’s CC cream unites the expertise of Chanel Research and the Creative Makeup Studio, combining the benefits of complete skincare and longlasting makeup. We’ve put it to the test!
Of course the packaging is a lust for the eye, with the clean and elegant Chanel signature. The CC cream is available in a 30 ml tube. We’ve tried the beige rosé shade; a specific shade developed for the Caucasian complexion. Though a CC cream’s formula is as such, that it adapts to the skintone.
The product contains ingredients to act on 5 needs: 1. Rejuvencia – an active ingredient derived from a marine micro-organism which stimulates the natural production of collagen, to prevent and correct signs of aging. 2. Hyaluronic acid to moisturize 3.Cornflower water to soothe 4. A mineral sunscreen SPF 30 to prevent from sun damage 5. Mineral pigments to conceal imperfections
Always apply your CC cream on a clean skin, and smooth it outwards over your face to create an even-toned and natural looking skin. What we’ve noticed is that this cream is perfect for mixed to oily skin, as it absorbs quickly and gives the complexion a matte finish. If your skin is somewhat dry, you could use a serum or light moisturizer underneath. It has a delicate floral perfume (which might not be in favor for everyone) and a lightweight structure. With some CC creams it’s necessary to use a bit of loose powder to prevent shine on the T-zone, but with the Chanel CC cream you won’t have to. It provides the skin with a matte, velvety soft look as promised.
The Chanel CC cream will be available from August 15 at Chanel Beauté retailers for €60.
