Found myself browsing what Chanel had to offer the other day and ended of parting with quite a bit of cash! It’s a brand largely undiscovered for me, for one reason or another, but I knew where I needed to start. Check out my thoughts on the newly reformulated Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzer, now called Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream. I have photos, swatches and before and after photos for you. Enjoy!!

Check out my Best Bronzers 2020 post to find the right one for you.

As I said, I haven’t tried loads of Chanel. I have used a foundation here and there, a nail polish, a lipstick, but we have never really clicked on the beauty side. Leather goods, howwever, is a totally different story!

I feel like one of my biggest crimes as a beauty blogger is never having tried the brand’s famous bronzer, Soleil Tan de Chanel. The fact that it has just been reformulated got me really interested because it was already such a successful product, and has pretty much been a best-seller since it launched in 2009.

Obviously, I can’t tell you how it compares to the original, but I can tell you what I think of it now. By the way, I have spoken to a couple of my Makeup Artist friends, and they think that the new formula is better. Good to know.

This is a very important part because we do want to make sure that our bronzers are not too orange. I absolutely love the tone of this bronzer and the texture is pretty gorgeous too. It melts effortlessly into the skin for seamless blending.

I left this swatch on my skin for most of the day after I took this photo, and it stayed in place and colour true for a good while, with no noticeable transfer. The formulation is excellent.

My Review

I found this really easy to apply straight over my foundation. I tried two different brushes – the Clinique Foundation Buff Brush*, and the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Brush*. They both worked really well with the formula, although I think the Bobbi one has the edge if you want a more intense look. Both excellent though.

The product glides on and gives the skin a very soft-focus, super flattering finish, that’s matte in a velvety way, and not at all flat. It didn’t break up my makeup unerneath and just really smoothed over the skin, enhancing the appearance of my complexion. If you are worried about enlarged pores, you need not with this as the soft mattifying effect gives a very uniform texture to the skin.

It smells lovely. A tiny little bit like chocolate but I imagine that is down to the light coconut oil in the formula. Don’t worry about this if you are prone to breakouts – this bronzer is non-comedegenic which means it won’t block pores. The colour is really good and not too warm even for my very pale skin. I applied it over the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Foundation* in shade Porcelain (review & swatches here) and it blended in perfectly.

  1. Hi there. Did you say you had some before and after photos? The pic of you wearing it is lovely but it would be good to see the ‘before’ too so we can see the difference. Thanks x

      1. Great, seen the video now, don’t think it was there when I posted question. Looks gorgeous and easy to apply. Trying to work out if I can justify the spend…! Having GWP withdrawals at the moment too! Craving something to cheer me up in lockdown, so hope they don’t disappear! x
