Cleansers -Chanel -L'Huile Anti-Pollutant Cleansing Oil

I have a love affair with all things Chanel, and I'm especially happy with the quality of their products.

My go-to Chanel beauty advisor recommended this to me as I've been using heavily foaming cleansers to remove makeup and clean my face. This isn't the first oil cleanser I've used but I stopped using them when the milky lather would ruin my vision in the morning. I have dry skin that tends to get tight and look sallow without moisturizer, so I look for cleansers that are creamy and don't foam.

One to two pumps is all you need to cleanse your entire face and neck - including eye makeup. And at first I couldn't believe it, but L'Huile really does remove heavy eye makeup! I wear several coats of mascara and it all came off in a few rubs.

Contact with water does produce a milky white lather but it's easily rinsed off and doesn't leave a film. My skin feels soft, hydrated, and fragranced. The scent is somewhere close to a rose-y, French jasmine. I wouldn't recommend this for those allergic to sunflower oil (first ingredient) or fragrance. I took off a star because although this effectively removes my makeup without stripping my skin's oils, I still get blurry vision.

The price was $45 for 5 oz. in a square pump bottle. It gets the job done while protecting and adding moisture to my skin. What I find funny is that this cleanser is only $7 more than their lipstick. The product itself is really sophisticated looking, but L'Huile is definitely on the upper tier in terms of price. I would use this sparingly, it's basically liquid gold!

Mild mild mild sunscreen with a tint. Got bullied into buying this by a Chanel sales lady. Good thing i did. You know.... Ive been having trouble wearing sunscreens bc irritate my skin. And those natural ones leave a horrible white cast. Now this stuff does not bother me! And it gives skin a wonderful tan tint without being too much Very easy to blend. No streaks. You dont need separate moisturizer just use this. I top it with powder makeup foundation.... skin looks fab! this stuff also has not broken me out. Worth the money this stuff!

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

FRAUD
This product is a fraud and its marketing based on lies.

It has the same "look" as the standard Coco Mademoiselle but now has "Intense' added to it. Implying a lot more.
It is not intense at all. Its fragrance is 70% less compared to the standard Mademoiselle which I have used for 20 years. Also the 'Intense" loses it flagrance after 30 minutes or so. I called Coco Chanel HO and only got more rubbish arguments poured over me. A dead-end.

Do not but the "intense". It is rubbish. Go for the Standard Mademoiselle perfume.


Mascara -Chanel -Le Volume De Chanel

I had a large sample size of this mascara. The brush is shaped like a spiked cudgel from GOT. I think the mascara is ok but not better than other mascaras that I have been using for awhile. It's a wet mascara that goes on with some minor clumps but does lead to volumized lashes after a couple of coats. It lasts well through a normal day and removes fairly easy. I just don't think it is better that my EL mascara or PTR lashes to die for which is $17 on Amazon.

Fragrances -Chanel -Gabrielle

I seem to be in the minority here in that I really enjoy this scent. It is a light scent for summer, appropriate for the office if yours allows fragrance.

On me it opens with a lovely mixed floral, with a tropical twist from the combo of white florals and ylang - rounded and rich but not overwhelming, and the florals quickly fold into the overall composition. There is a backbone of citrus - grapefruit and mandarin. These are on the sweet side, not strong and bitter, but sunny and bright. I get an undercurrent of pink pepper which is a favorite note for me. The black currant and pear notes are in there but they are subtle. The overall vibe is mostly floral with a hint of fruit, not the strong sweet fruit smell that is so popular lately. It dries down to a nice floral veil over a clean musky sandalwood. The entire composition is expertly blended and feels sophisticated and smooth. It lasts all day on me but wears close as I prefer.

The packaging is quite nice in my opinion. The juice is a nice peachy amber color. The glass bottle has an interesting shape that slants inwards towards the center. I like the delicate feel of it in my hand. The cap closes with a snap that would have been nicer with a magnet soft close but at least it feels secure. The box includes a shaped insert to stabilize the bottle inside. I keep my fragrances in the box when possible, to protect them from light, so this little detail is appreciated. The 50ML size is $105 which seems relatively inexpensive for a Chanel. There are also smaller and larger sizes available.
