Hi everyone, today I have one of my favourite products ever to share with you. And I double checked it is spelled “Universel” not “Universal” as I usually say in English so I learned something new while blogging about this product lol. This is one of my few Chanel products and the only one thus far that I will DEFINITELY repurchase in the future. I bought this in 2011 and I have used it every summer since then and it hardly looks like I have used much of it but believe me I have! It’s one of those talked about items from Chanel and I completely get it – I am addicted to this product so lets get to showing you as to why that is…
Chanel ‘Soleil Tan De Chanel’ Bronze Universel’ – is a warm medium brown creme to powder bronzer. This is a permanent product by Chanel (as far as I know) and it’s one of the best products on the cosmetic market in my opinion.
Due to the length of time I have had the product, you can see brush hairs collection in the middle of the pot but that’s attributed to the brush that I use not the product itself. It looks like a mousse consistency but as you will see in the next swatch it is a creme bronzer. I love how light weight and natural it looks on my skin & a little of it goes a long way. You can even use this all over your body since it dries to a powder finish if you really wanted to due to the natural finish it gives.
I think this is a the perfect summer bronzer and that’s when I tend to use it the most – the only draw back is that this is the only colour that it is offered in. I think Chanel should branch off and include a lighter shade and a darker shade because it can look too “orange” at times if you apply a lot of the product and/or it doesn’t show up on deeper skin tones. I sincerely hope Chanel branches out on this product because they have a winning formula!
You can see the creamy texture of the product in this photo – it applies like a dream and the best part is that it is long wearing!! I have never needed to reapply this product through out the day ever!
This photo captures the finely milled golden particles within the product – it’s so minute that you can’t see when applied to the face but it gives a really beautiful glow on the skin. This is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it!! You get your money’s worth & you don’t have to worry about it as you would a powder bronzer in that it might break on you. It’s fantastic product and it is one of the higher end products that is worth the hype and the price point!
