OG Product Review: Chanel Soleil De Chanel

I have decided to start a review series on OG products. Products that are not new to the market but still have people wanting them because they once had a lot of hype. It seemed fitting to start this series with the ever popular Chanel Soleil De Chanel makeup base. The Chanel De Soleil Chanel makeup base can be purchased in Australia from David Jones for $69 AUD or from the United States at Nordstrom for $50 USD.

There is a lot of product here! a whopping 30 grams to be exact. I have had mine for two years and have not put much of a dent in it (yes I know makeup expires but I keep it unless it separates or smells funky…..and this has not happened to this product yet).

Do not be scared by the orange appearance of this product. I know it looks a bit scary because the orange appearance of the product was the reason why I procrastinated on buying this for so long! The cream blends out to a beautiful natural bronze glow on my nc20 skin. It looks so natural and does not throw out a hint of orange.

I find this applies best with my finger (softly dabbing and blending out) or with a stiffer brush like the Real Techniques one shown above (I have no idea the exact name as it has worn off). A dual fiber brush would work well with this product. I often use this as a bronzing cream base before applying a bronzing powder like the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow on top. If you apply to much of this product it can easily be blended out to a natural finish. This really is a fool proof product!

Overall I love this product, it is a staple in my top draw which I would replace without a second thought if it ever ran out. I rate this product 9/10.

I would love to know if your thoughts on this product! xxxx
