Chanel complete correction CC Cream

As we all start to get excited for our Summer holiday we get asked a lot about which foundation is a good one to take away.
 It's still nice to have a little bit of coverage but something that will also protect our skin in the sun.
 The Chanel CC cream is not a foundation but it's one of the best CC creams we have come across for the amount of cover it gives.
 CC creams (if you're not familiar) address skin tone and help to correct any redness, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
 If you are someone who suffers from any of these then you should be wearing a high SPF in the sunshine to protect and prevent further darkening of pigmentation. This particular CC cream has a mega dose of sun protection in the form of SPF50/PA ++++. What does this SPF rating mean? SPF 50 gives you fifty times your own skins protection against burning. The PA part of the sunscreen cover means the grade of protection against UVA which was established in Japan. The UVA rays are the ageing rays and the four+ indicates a very high level of UVA protection.
 It contains a peach complex which is unique to Chanel. This helps stimulate the skins defence barrier. Hyaluronic acid helps to moisturise the skin and give it a plumped, hydrated appearance. 
 Coverage wise this is really good. It goes on with quite a thick, creamy texture initially but blends out to a medium cover. It has a soft, pearly finish and makes the skin look radiant and fresh.
 It absorbs into the skin well and doesn't leave a greasy residue. 
The texture sits well on all skin types although if your skin is particularly oily it may be too radiant.
 The colour options are limited to four shades however the lightest shade
 The shades are Beige 10, 20, 30, 40. We have two of the shades..

 Overall a great product to wear all year round but particularly in the Summer months. Giving you an even tone and radiant complexion and particularly benefits those with pigmentation or sensitive skin.
 This product does not replace your regular sun cream. If sun bathing with just this product on you will quickly sweat it off. A professional sun cream is designed to be sweat proof and waterproof. You also need to apply a large quantity of suncream, more than people often realise. This would be a very expensive product to use as your sun protection. Available now online and from all Chanel counters at £44.00 for 30ml.




  1. Hi, I'm a bit confused that you mentioned this doesn't replace sun cream. This is an SPF 50 PA++++ product - do you also need to wear more SPF under it?

    1. I would imagine its down to quantity rather than quality. You have to use a lot of sunscreen to get the cover required, a lot more than most people would apply for foundation.

    2. It would still give you sun protection but if you are sunbathing you will sweat this off. A professional sun cream will often be sweat and waterproof and also as Lisa mentioned above you need to apply a lot of sun cream to get a good protection.

    3. Ahh - Righto. Thanks for your quick replies :-)
      I don't sunbathe and am very generous with product. I currently use Natura Bisse diamond sun protection which I love but is over three times the cost of this product so it may be worth me trying. I also use SPF 50 PA+++ powder over the top and carry an SPF 50 PA+++ over-makeup spray (from Tokyo) if I'm outside for a reasonable amount of time :-)

  2. Keen on trying this in the summer months! Great recommendation :)

    With love, Hayley x

  3. I've never actually tried a CC cream before but this one sounds very appealing!x


    1. I agree. Will most definetly be in my next purchase.

  4. I use the Beige CC Cream mixed with the deeper foundation shades - evens out and gives a lovely boost to darker skin tones.

    Great post!


  5. Just to say, it's £44 for 30ml, not 100ml. The latter would be too good to be true! It does sounds lovely.

    1. No idea why I wrote 100ml! well spotted.x
