CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel

Hello lovelies,
Last month I finally took the plunge and purchased by first Chanel product. After a year of swooning over their foundations and lipsticks I put my sensible head on and decided to go for a product I couldn't buy from another brand. I hear you, there are plenty of non-powder bronzers out there, but non quite like this one. So if the packaging hadn't already, let me tempt you in to buying this little beauty...
For me, the texture of this product really sets it apart from other cream bronzers. In the pot the product is solid, it is only once the heat of your skin touches the product does it become a lovely buttery texture. This allows the product to be worked on to your skin, but also means that once applied this sets beautifully and stays in place all day. 

I think this is the perfect winter bronzer as not only does it add a bit of warmth to a snow white complexion, it has a lovely subtly dewy finish. 
I like to lightly buff this on to my skin after applying my liquid and powder foundation. By applying it after powder it will keep the coverage of your foundation intact and create a smother finish. This can be applied as your bronzer or as a base to your bronzer depending on the finish and intensity of colour you prefer.
Priced at £32 for 30g of never-ending product I did not think the price was too bad. This product could last you a good couple of years even if you used it everyday. buy here

I clean all my products once a month with The Pro Hygiene Collection's make up antibacterial spray which will help increase product shelf life. I also never put my brush in to the pot, I swirl my clean finger in the pot and then wipe this on to my brush. This keeps the product clean and allows for buildable application. 

Let me know what you think of this product or if it is on your christmas list. Also I would love to know your favourite Chanel products, I'm thinking of buying a soft pink or nude lipstick; any shade suggestions?
