Chanel CC Cream... Is it good or bad?

I've been using the Chanel CC Cream for more than three weeks now, I think it is good enough for me to write a review now. I bought this because I needed a makeup coverage after I finish my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I know tinted moisturizer and the cc cream are both very different, but I just wanted something to even out my skin tone so I thought I will give the CC Cream a try.

What is this Chanel CC Cream?

The CC Cream is a complexion enhancer that marries both skincare and makeup in a single product. Perfect for the modern woman on the go, the CC Cream (which stands for complete correction care for the complexion) offers multiple skincare benefits, makeup coverage, a natural finish, and a seductively sensorial experience! You'll definitely fall in love with it.

It's one product with five active ingredients that work separately on the skin. It uses cornflower water to soothe, hyaluronic acid to moisturise, a mineral sunscreen of SPF30/PA+++ to protect skin against harmful UV rays, Rejuvencia to prevent and correct signs of ageing, and finally, mineral pigments to correct redness, dark spots and pores.


1. The sunscreen is able to block UVA and UVB rays with the SPF30/PA+++. If you know a little about SPF, you'll know that this has quite a good UV protection. This makes it a very good day wear.

2. The sheer-medium coverage is perfect for those who want minimum makeup on their face. Most of the time, I use this to even out my skintone and then I brush some loose powder on top.

3. As a makeup base, it works as a primer for your foundation to glide smoother. So far, I think this is the best foundation primer. It keeps my face matte all day. It was a durability test for this product when I went to Disneyland. Despite sweating, running around and been out the whole day, my foundation was perfect!

4. Didn't cause any breakouts or irritation to my skin so far.

5. It smells so good.... Reminds me of honeydew.


1. Expensive. For 30ml only, it cost RM165.

2. It contains perfume, some of you might be allergic to it.

3. Coverage is sheer-medium. If you have dark pigmentation on the skin, it might not be good enough to cover. You might need extra help from concealer.

4. Only comes in one shade which is in yellow tone. It might not suit darker skin or pink tone skin. I hope Chanel will release more shades because it is quite a good product after all.

Overall, I think this CC Cream works well for me. All I need is a makeup coverage that can even out my skin tone and this CC Cream is good at it. On normal days, I put this on and top with some loose powder. But on my outing days or important dates, I will use this as makeup base. Generally as a makeup product it is very good. But as a skincare, I'm not too sure. I need more time to see if it actually improves my skin condition.

I wish it is not so expensive though.

There's another CC Cream in the market, which is by Rachel K. I am not really keen with it because I think it is more of a cult product and their selling point is on the endorsement from beauty queens. Somehow there's a lacking of WOW factor. Do take note that the Rachel K CC Cream is completely different from the Chanel CC Cream. Have you tried the Rachel K CC Cream? Is it good?

As for the Chanel CC Cream, I'll rate it a 7 out of 10. The -3 points are for the expensive price and the ambiguous skincare benefits.

Liss Cope: BB Cream is a bit oilier. Other than that, they're pretty much similar.

I've receive the Rachel K's cc cream sample but I haven't try it yet. But I think maybe Chanel works better.

Jerine said...

íм χшËî: Do try it and let me know if it's good. Meanwhile the Chanel CC Cream is really very nice. I love the matte texture.

Girls seem to be much more free of charge to put on cross-gender clothing and to
act outdoors their proven gender function. Think about how the media
portrays men and women. It seems males are both the stereotypical macho guy or even the bumbling
fool. Guys are much less totally free to display their feelings.
Ladies may be qualified, smart, and athletic.

When you lose physique does it come about all over the physique equally or to certain parts greater
than other people?
Reason i request is i've been on a diet plan and also have noticed a large alter all more than my body and im a whole lot thinner all other my body. I've also noticed even though
that my breasts have gone genuinely tiny and therefore are half the size due towards the quantity of fat ive lost on my
upper body. My thighs and buttocks are starting to go now slowly but gradual.
