Edit- i use to wake up very oily from my other cleanser but i can see a difference when i use this, my skin is not as greasy! I only changed this in my routine so i know this is whats been working. I hate skincare "for oily skin" those actually strip my skin even more and i get even more greasy. i read somewhere that the reason we get oily is actually our skin being dehydrated and compensating for moisture so we produce more oil as self defense from dryness. I experimented with products that are hydrating and it works a lot better. this is worth every penny to me, it makes my skin baby soft and smooth, calms down my redness, prepares my face for powder makeup since it doesn't make me feel or look dry(i can use less of my hydra beauty flash primer because of this cleanser), and the smell lingers a bit but i love it.I have sensitive acne prone skin with oily tzones/normal cheeks. I am suffering from hormonal breakouts due to pregnancy and this was a little gift to myself this christmas. This is a watery lotion texture cleansing milk that turns into an oil as you massage it in the skin. I would actually first take my makeup off with the neutrogena makeup removing wipes then i take one(sometimes two) pumps of this in semi wet hands and rub it in for about a minute. the lotion might be a bit thick so as it starts to get tacky i would wet my hands a little then continue to rub my face and this makes the cleanser more watery (it actually looks like milk if you add a little water). I enjoy rubbing and massaging my face while i wash so i really love this cleanser. It smells very nice like a fresh sweet floral scent.(addicting) Very soft and soothing on the skin even when i rinse it off i feel like i don't need to moisturize. It is not drying whatsoever and it feels very luxurious on the skin. I get very into washing my face once i discovered this. Its a nice "me time" at the end of the night or just to start my day like a mini spa treatment. The bottle is very nice and sealed tight so this can be put in the shower and water won't go into it. packaging is gorgeous like everything chanel makes. I ordered mine online and the box it comes in is beautiful along with little samples in a little cute black bag. Im a sucker for Chanel packaging lolPros-non irritatingnon dryingnon greasycalms redness/no breakoutsmakes skin baby butt softno need to use water with thisCons-takes a bit time to massage (if u don't have time in the morning)price (45$ for 5oz bottle) may not be cleansing enough if you wear a lot of makeup but double cleanse should do it

I don't get all these horrible reviews. While this is certainly not the greatest fragrance ever made, it also doesn't deserve a measly 2.5 lippies. It's a pleasant, classy perfume suitable for every setting. Pity it only lasts a couple of hours and then fades.

Thirty years ago, as a teenager who wanted to be sophisticated and chic, I wore Chanel No. 5 because what could be more chic than Chanel? Next I wore Chanel’s Coco. I loved, loved, loved that perfume. It was probably a bit “mature” for me at the time, but it was the start of my love for Oriental fragrances. I was also fascinated by the story of an ambitious orphan, Gabrielle Chanel, rising from humble beginnings to being THE arbiter of style. To say that I was intrigued by a new Chanel fragrance, the first in 15 years, to be named Gabrielle would be an understatement. I saw several magazine articles describing this new perfume and thought that I might be wearing Chanel again. After all these years, I still want to smell sophisticated and chic. I read that this fragrance was “quiet” and it was based on four white flowers: jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom and tuberose. I enjoy all of those flowers in perfumes. I liked the golden glow of the print ad. It sounded like Gabrielle would make a great everyday fragrance; that it would be pretty, but allow the wearer to be the one to shine. I went to the perfume counter at a high end department store and their display of Chanel bottles was gorgeous. I picked up the bottle of Gabrielle and admired the elegant simplicity of the glass. The magic unfortunately ended there for me. I find Gabrielle to be long lasting on my dry skin. But the fragrance never became the luminous perfume I hoped it would be. I had imagined Gabrielle might be a really pretty perfume like Jour d’Hermes, which is also based on white flowers. There is the essence of something lovely at its heart, but for me it never took flight. For the first time, a Chanel fragrance ended up smelling like acrid hairspray on me.

Can be used mixed in the day cream and makes application much easier, no layering as I am already applying a serum before the mix of the two. Gives a moisture boost that last four hours to keep make up set and fresh.
I am a big fan of the Le Jour, La Nuit and Le Weekend series, which can now only be found in special doors and online (why??!!!); and must say these three and the CC cream all work beautifully in tandem. Very sleek and modern skincare, almost without using classic day and night cream textures just serums and SPF 50 all in the lightest textures of this world!

This is not an intensely moisturizing balm. It is more of a maintenance product, to be used on healthy lips. If your lips are chapped, peeling, and/or dehydrated, the formula is not strong enough to revive and repair. I like it as an alternative to lip color, worn daily on its own, or under a lip color as a light moisturizing prep. I have an issue with popular colorless lip moisturizers like Chapstick, Carmex, and the EOS lippies. All of them make my lips feel dry and thirsty for the product as soon as it has disappeared. It's creates a very uncomfortable feeling that I hate. The Chanel Rouge Coco Baume does not do this to my lips, and as a result, has earned a spot in my makeup arsenal.

Being a fan of cream eye shadow I purchased the color 810 Pourpre Profond. The color looks interesting in the jar and is a plum color on the lid. The brush included works very well with the cream. I would have to fault it on the score of Longwear as it does fad on me somewhat but I am not using a primer with it. The colors are not overly full of glitter but give a nice finish. I like it enough to try a couple of other colors.

This suits my dry skin. This foundation is so lightweight that it feels like a tinted moisturizer. It kind of reminds me of Nars tinted moisturizer. Because its light and still have coverage enough, thumbs up on this one!I have B30 which suits my NC25 skintone perfectly!

I have combo acne prone skin oily tzone/normal cheeks .This is a mediocre cream-gel consistency moisturizer. Its not as moisturing as i had hoped. Upon application it feels really nice and thick but also gel like. I got a bit of shine on my forehead and a greasy feeling on my face after a couple hours. This cream worked okay but i had to add more product under my nose, in between eyebrows and dry spots on my chin(areas where i get dry from acne medicine). Its not the right amount of moisture id like in a cream. The only other problem for me is the 1oz bottle for 80usd which is a bit much for just 10 ingredients. I dont think this would be great for night time because its not as rich if you are looking for a heavier type of cream. I just cant see myself repurchasing every month (maybe 6 weeks at most) for a cream that does the same as something half the price. Ive been using and loving the first aid ultra repair cream and its great for sensitive skin but just a bit greasy after couple hours but this one gives you comfort and great moisure i look for. If you have the money then yes this is a luxury item to splurge for a day cream but sadly, for me i cant do it. :(If you are cheap like me i just get samples from the counter or get the 5ml bottles on ebay and buy in bulk. I got 3 of the 5ml for 13dollars which equals to half the bottle of the regular 1oz which is 30 ml. Lol yes its super cheap but hey its a nice way to try it out.

In retrospect, I should have gotten a Bourjois blush as they're made by the same manufacturer as Chanel and the cost would have been considerably less. In any event, I do like this Chanel blush which I got thanks to MUA's glowing reviews and in my goal to achieve a 'glowy' look that doesn't look like excess blush. The shade looks rather plain in the packaging but don't let that fool you. It does impart a subtle look with a soft glow for me which is perfect on my skin tone. (NC30) For extra oomph, I'll use a bit of liquid or cream blush underneath. (NARS Liquid blushes are fabulous) I do think that this shade works best on fair to light/medium skin tones; it may work as a highlighter on darker skin tones. My main complaint is that the powder tends to 'kick up' regardless of what brush I use. The price tag is rather excessive too but it is Chanel. (hence why not five lipsticks)Would I re-purchase? Only if I can't find a similar shade in the Bourjois line.

This makes my face feel very comfortable even under powders/ powder foundations. It absorbed very quickly and the feeling is a nongreasy type of balm. It is moisterizing but not as much as i would like. I suffer from acne prone combo skin and i have dry patches due to the use of acne treatments. But if you have dry skin thats not peeling or cracked this would be a lovely primer. I am still trying this out but it does smooth out my skin and i dont have a tight dry feeling from my le teint powder. If i didnt use this id feel more on the greasier side from just using moisterizer under my foundation. Also without this the dry parts around my nose is more noticeable (feels dry too) It feels like an invisible protective barrier under powder. Will update as i cont to use this. Edit- tried this without using acne treatment and it makes my skin look so nice i cant describe it but i know there is a difference when i have this on. It really adds radiance. When i look into the mirror when i don't use this my face does not look as nice or even. When i do have this on i feel that my foundation looks a lot more natural and just...better! I had this on for 4 hours and my skin still looks great not even as oily. I wouldnt say this is oil control but it doesnt make me more oily than i already am. But i wouldve been more greasy if i just had moisturizer on. Primers never wowed me in the past and ive always strayed from them. I usually pick very moisterizing ones to try and it always made me feel like i had a film of grease on my skin. I am a powder foundation wearer and this works really great underneath. Chanels great with samples the 5ml bottles can be used probably 5 to 7 times(you dont need much). I actually ordered mine on ebay since i wasnt going near a nordstroms or macys atm. After trying the sample past few days i couldnt help but ordered the full bottle for 55usd on their website. I enjoy ordering from chanel because of their packaging. Love this primer its def a hg status for powder foundation wearers or if you have drier skin. edit (after 1 month usage 1/14/18) - When I'm in the hurry in the morning i use this as my moisturizer and skip my usual cream and it works wonderfully. It hydrates without feeling greasy and a pea size is enough for my whole face so i still have lots left. i just wish it had spf in this but its ok i still love this product.Pro- Provides a smooth/silky baseAdds brightness and radiancesuper comfortable under powder makeupMoisurizing without being greasyVery nice feel while applyingNon pore clogging/no acne (i break out with everything)Not a strong smell(light peachy floral scent)Nice squeezy sanitary bottleCons- expensive price for the 1oz bottle *(only a pea size is needed for entire face though, ill check back and see when this bottle will last me) 12/20/17

I've had this foundation for over six months and I've finally figured out the best way to apply it: use a hydrating primer and then apply with a flat top foundation brush like the Sigma F82. Work quickly! Then go over with a clean, damp beauty blender to smooth out any lines. Definitely go easy around the eyes--I find it's better to bounce the brush instead of buffing it. Set wherever you need with Laura Mercier powder and a setting spray and you're done! It's absolutely flawless and the color match for me is perfect! Best part is it doesn't transfer onto anything!! Not even my glasses!! It lasts all day and my dry skin does well with it so long as I use that hydrating primer. It dries down well and it looks like skin even in a magnifying mirror. I have noticed that sometimes the product in the pump will dry out and I have to shove on it to get the gloopy bits out which is a waste of product but otherwise it functions perfectly!

I had not smelled this before I bought it on Chanel's website. I was fully expecting to like it. The first thing I thought when I first sprayed it was that it smelled like bug spray. Really a disappointment! I am not sure if I want to bother returning it.

I have worn this for a couple of days and I'm still undecided... I am about NC20 and in this B20, not sure if this oxidises a bit. It doesn't last very long, but I really like that it looks like second skin - can look cakey though if too much layers applied. I know that chanel is compared a lot to Bourjois healthy mix but having tried both, Bourjois is definitely not a dupe. Bourjois is more moisturising and definitely look like you're wearing foundation - not that second skin look.

I only tried the sample and this is something that i wish i loved but unfortunately i didnt. Its too drying and i have combo oily skin. It makes my nose look very powdery/ flakey and acccentuates my dry patches and acne. If you have discoloration and is looking for a quick foundation to put on this would be good fit. This would be very nice as a one step foundation (no need setting with powder) for somebody who has a great moisturizing primer. i am nw20 in mac maybelline 120 classic ivory and i tried this in b20 which is a bit yellow for me. I should have tried the b22. Smell didnt bother me just the feel and look of it was a lot more powdery(un-natural) than i expected. Edit- i caved in and gave this another shot. This time around i had purchased the beige rose 22 shade which was a seamless perfect match. I have to admit i love this now. I am someone who gets put off by liquid foundations and to my surprise this actually works better than my powders. Its formula sort of turns liquid to soft powder, if that makes sense. It looks natural and velvetty. Somedays I can dab a little and touch up with this and it still blended in great so its layerable. I dab this on and blend with a flat top brush working it in sections since this can dry quickly. Also shake bottle up and down gently without cap but with fingers on the tip. I learned this from a sa of chanel. The difference from last time was that my acne has cleared and no longer using benzoyl peroxide so my skin is not as dry. It feels so light as if im not wearing anything. I have to say i think this would suit those who have oily skin but not ones who are suffering from acne or very dry skin, it will accentuate those patches. This suits me a lottt better than a couple of months ago. I was putting on too much from the sample packet with my fingers which was not a fair review, plus the color did not match either. I wore this for 8 hours and i didnt have to blot. I have oily tzones that get shiney within 2 hours(le beige line makes me so greasy i had to switch to this!) and this Is truly impressive. Its amazing. It did fade a little bit but i didnt expect it to stay on well since its so thin. But def still looks good. This is hg status aslong as it dont break me out! Will update as i keep experimenting with this.

Still one of the best foundations out there. If you need more coverage (or higher spf!) it blends beautifully with Chanel CC Cream, mixing a few drops of each before applying; not layering!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
