its a thin liquid,, very slippery and almost greasy feeling initially but later absorbed very quickly, its a chemical sunscreen so good if you are doing photo-shoot i assumed, i like the rose smell and enjoyed using it.

The reviews on this product seems to be bipolar- its either huge love or a huge hate. I received this product as a sample from Nordstrom and prior to testing the stuff, checked the reviews online and was surprised to note the bad reviews for this item on MUA. So it sat on my shelf for a few days and when I ran out of my favorite primer - Serge Lutens ridiculously expensive primer - i reached out for this one and it was true love. My makeup stays on all day and i love the glowy dewy feel it gives me. I never need to do any re-touches or blotting with this one mid-day. I do not know why another reviewer has called this product heavy to the touch but its consistency is a watered down milky look and feels like a gel. It has a less siliconey feel than the more popular smashbox primers. I liked it enough to purchase the whole tube and so far no breakouts or any complaints. I may have just found my HG and oh! the spf is a bonus. One more step to avoid doing in the morning.
As a physician, I am always on the lookout for cosmetics that take on science and this is one of them. Its an anti-glycation product effective in protecting the skin from the internal threat of sugar glycation, thereby inhibiting the breakdown of collagen and hence aging and so this comes with many super duper bonuses.
I found more reviews of this stuff on another blogging site called Product doctor and she seemed to love it as much as i do too.. Personally, I Love it!

This primer is horrible. I am not a primer wearer to begin with but bought this solely because of the spf 50 factor and thought the primer was a bonus. WRONG!!! It felt greasy, too silicon-y, had way too much slippage to a point where my makeup would slide off my face by mid-afternoon making me look haggard and yucky, and did i mention my skin felt like it was suffocating? I wonder if the spf 50 is even there because I've read many reviews that mention that their spf content is unstable. So for all the reasons mentioned above this is a waste of money for me. Over $100 wasted.Thought I'd finish it but I cannot tolerate the suffocating and 'just sitting on top of my skin' feeling. I'm gonig back to my Chanel UV essential.

A good primer with an SPF of 50 probably shouldn't cost $85, but it does.
I have combo oily skin and I happen to like this a lot. Let me tell you why: I highly dislike any of the sunscreens on the market made for the face (caveat: Dr. Raj Kanodia just came out with one that's pretty decent, but only an SPF 30).
Every single ofther facial SPF product I've tried breaks me out. I don't know what the hell it is in the products that cause my face to redden and blemish, but without fail, it happens.
Until, on a whim walking through the Beauty Habit headquarters (yes, it's in my neighborhood, and yes, they let you come in the warehouse and shop!), I picked this up and put it in my basket. I'm not a huge fan of other products in this line. Mainly because I already have a favorite tinted moisturizer, lipstick brand...etc.
But, I will most likely suck it up when this tube is finished and replace it.

Unlike other reviewers, I actually like this product and will very likely buy it again. It doubles very well as a sunscreen and primer for me -- not heavy on the skin and not greasy for a 49-year-old with combination skin. It helps my foundation (currently, Make-Up Forever face and body) go on smoothly. It is, of course, pricey like all of the Chantecaille products.

I have to agree with the other reviewers that this product was horrible. I am a huge Chantecaille fan and I bought it because it is the first primer that Chantecaille has come out with. The bottom line is that this "primer" is thick, made me incredibly greasy and oily, and created a lot of slippage in my foundation. I don't even think that it would work well for dry skin types because it's heavy and silicone-y at the same time. The worst part is that I paid $$$$ for this and I couldn't even bring myself to use up half the tube :(

I love Chantecaille skin care, and was REALLY excited when this came out. I am a sun-phobe, and was thrilled to see something with such a high SPF which I could wear everyday.
I will say that I did not experience the foundation break-down that the other rater reported. Overall I found the product to be pretty good-- my foundation stayed put all day. (I also use Chantecaille foundation) I didn't have a chemical reaction to the product, which surprised me since I have very sensitive skin.
The product is a thin liquid, it goes on super smooth, and you don't need much of it at all. Very comparable to the La Mer SPF 30 liquid (which was my everyday, and which I have since gone back to). I was used to the runny-ness of the La Mer, so this was not shocking. My complaint with the product was that it made me break out in random spots, like on my cheeks. Very strange, and I did a number of 'tests' to verify that it was the Chantecaille that was making me have bumpy skin. Too bad, because aside from that, I felt it worked well as a primer and sun protection (although I am not a scientist and cannot attest to SPF breakdown-- maybe it does).

Avobenzone mixed with octinoxate is highly unstable and octisalate is a weak UVB blocker and unstable as well....so how is this going to protect your skin when the spf breaks down quickly in sunlight??? You get antioxidants but not stable sunscreen like zinc oxide or avobenzone stabilized by octocrylene....do the research...this will not protect you form the sun once it degrades quickly...photo unstable...Chanel UV essentiel has zinc oxide which is stable
