Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel


Hey everyone, So if you read my post about the Bourjois Bronzing Primer, than you would know I have never tried the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel. I have worked with it before on a shoot and while I was at the airport in Barcelona, my holiday mode took over and the next thing you know I am stood at the till handing over €36.00. 

So how does it compare to the budget friendly Bourjois one. Well personally I think they are very different, yes they have their similarities but I think they are different. First off the Chanel one is a solid texture, its almost like hard cream. It still blends out really nicely. It goes on like a dream actually, however I think It can be easily overdone, so a light hand is best, especially if you are pale like myself. Another thing is the suitability for certain skin types. I mentioned I think the Bourjois Bronzing Primer was suitable for all skin types, granted it doesn't last all day on my oily skin, I still think its suitable for all ladies or guys. On the other hand the Chanel version I don't think would work for dry skin people, I think it would not blend very well and I think it will emphasize dry patches.  So that's the difference between the two. 

Enough comparing, onto what I think. Well, I really like this bronzer, it looks natural on my skin at the moment which is currently tanned from my holiday, maybe I won't like it so much in the winter months, I'll play it from here. The texture is really nice. I like buffing it into my skin, it feels so nice and smooth. It last pretty much throughout the whole day and when it does disappear it gradually leaves my skin instead of going patchy etc. The colour of this Bronzer in terms of suiting pale skin, I think if you are paler than me then give this one a miss, unless you use a very light and I mean light hand. 

Overall, I really like this bronzer. Its natural and longer lasting than previous cream bronzers, I've tried. Its gives my skin an overall healthy glowing tanned look without looking Jersey Shore. I do prefer it to the Bourjois one, only a little bit, I think that's mainly due to the texture. However if you are super pale or have dry skin opt for the Bourjois Version, if you fit into any other category, treat yourself to a little luxury, you wont regret it. 

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?
