I love this product for gentle yet effective exfoliation. I find that the grains last for a good amount of time on the face, as well. I don't typically think using skincare products with fragrance is a good idea for me; however, I don't find that the fragrance in Exfoliance Confort causes noticeable irritation. My skin feels incredibly smooth after using this product and looks remarkably clean and soft. I think the honey in this exfoliator also tones my skin remarkably well. I am interested in trying some other exfoliators, but I would definitely repurchase Exfoliance Confort.
I agree that this fragrance is a feminine one--not sporty, not androgynous, not too light. I actually don't want to wear it every day. As with other fragrances that I wear, I like Vanderbilt once in a while. To me, Vanderbilt is a very romantic fragrance, and a very rich one. I think the richness of it is what appeals to me. The floral notes really linger, and I can detect vanilla notes. I think the swan is a brilliant marketing strategy. I admit I greatly admire the grace of the swan. Vanderbilt really intrigues me. I almost have to wear it whether I want to or not.
I've had my Tweezerman tweezers for over five years, and they still work well. I was amazed the first time I used them too. Sometimes, I think I'd like another pair just to have a different color.
Hair Styling Tools -Mason Pearson - Popular Bristle & Nylon Brush

I used the Mason Pearson Junior forever until I dropped it in the unflushed toilet accidentally. About half an hour later, I had already ordered the Popular from drugstore.com. I love it too. I love it. I needed the slightly larger Popular. My scalp loves this brush especially. I honestly hear people say I have thick hair and people say I have fine hair. I don't think my hair is too thick or too fine for this brush though. I'm interested in their other models, but they're quite expensive. At least I know I like the way this one works, and I'm being very careful to keep it out of the toilet.
This product for brows from Chanel gives a very soft effect. I like using these powders better than an eyeshadow for my brows, too. The trio of shades have a somewhat waxy consistency which helps them to last on the brows. The color glides on smoothly and evenly without skipping or accentuating tiny irregularities of the skin. I wouldn't recommend Perfect Brows for people without any eyebrows, but for shading natural brows, Perfect Brows works wonders.
I'm very fair, and such a small amount of this blush makes such a difference for me. I've only just started on my first one ever, so I wonder how long it will last. I think for a long time. I bought the Chanel blush brush too. The results I see with this product truly amaze me.
Sunscreen -Chanel - UV Essentiel Anti-Polution SPF 30+

I may try another skin defender with SPF, but I really like this one. I often wear it alone with Chanel's Hydra-Treatment Lip Care SPF 15. I feel protected from pollution and the sun when I wear the UV Essentiel. I wouldn't say that it's scented, but the smell is surprisingly pleasant. A little goes a long way and feels so light on the skin.
Pressed Powders -Chanel - Poudre Douce 20 Peche Tendre

I have a couple Chanel loose powders for finishing but use this pressed powder on the go. I'm so glad when I do too. The small brush is a genius idea for touchups, and I look so healthy after I've used this.
I like how this powder preserves the color of my foundation. I use the puff to press it into my skin and then a Chanel powder brush to dust off the excess. I've also used this powder over just Chanel's UV Essentiel. I think the powder's fine consistency looks great on skin.
This concealer works well for me. It lasts and really disappears and conceals without a lot of effort. I think it feels great under my eyes and keeps me looking awake. I hate the price of Chanel makeup, but, particularly with this concealer, I can use very little with beautiful results.
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15

I have to say that my skin looks very young, and I really have no problems with dryness. I feel like this foundation really works well for me. My skin looks and feels better when I'm wearing it. I've never worn a foundation before that matched my skin as well as this one. Somehow, it really gives me a lot of color without looking too dark, and I LOVE a foundation with a matte finish. One pump covers my whole face beautifully.
