Perfect combination, Chanel 2.55, Celine sunglasses and my new classic, CC Cream by Chanel.

Last week I set out on a mission, to buy a new CC Cream that had been recommended to me by a fabulous make-up artist. From Erborian, the Korean brand, it really was line-smoothing and it had an SPF of 45 which for a sun protection freak like me, was great. Unfortunately, they've discontinued the SPF45 here in Portugal and only sell the lower SPF's, which would not do for me at all. While I was browsing the Chanel counter, the saleswoman pounced on me. Too weak to resist anything in that eternally chic black and white packaging, I confessed why I was really there. It seems Chanel has had a CC Cream for quite ages, and as the saleswoman categorically insisted it was an extraordinary product, that she used it all day and it didn't budge, and on and on , how it was excellent. It was a little more expensive than the one I was intending to buy, but I took the plunge and bought it! 

I believe my (skin) life has changed for the better! I road tested it last Thursday, doing my make-up at 6 A.M., flying to Milan, working all day, then flying to London that night, and finally looking in the miror again at 11P.M. To my surprise, my skin looked even, not cakey, just healthy, and not too red around the chin, amazing for the hours in a planes, rushing around and generally rubbing my face. This CC Cream has a broad-spectrum SPF 50 and anti-pollutant ingredients help fend off age-accelerating UVA-UVB rays and free-radical damage. It covers just enough to let your skin as "natural" as possible with some coverage, and all that SPF too!! 

If this is you, look no further!
