Chanel Lait Confort Cream Cleansing Milk Comfort + Anti-Pollution for Face & Eyes
Good size: 150 ml for $45
Chanel has been doing much better in terms of makeup and skincare products in the last few years. Price-wise it’s very similar to Dior and Guerlain (not skincare products though). First I fell in love with Chanel eye makeup remover. Next I decided to try cleansing milk. Before I used Dior cleansing milk and I can say that I like Chanel much more.
The bottle of Chanel cleansing milk costs $45. The bottle is pretty big – 150 ml or 5 fl.oz. This is a very gentle but effective makeup remover for sensitive skin. It has a nice but rather strong smell: I like it, however, if you generally don’t like strong flowery smells in your skincare products, try it first at Nordstrom (or Bloomingdale’s). Packaging is great: the pump is convenient to use and never gets clogged. Black-and-white bottle is simple and elegant and looks good on my bathroom counter top.
Chanel Lait Confort cleansing milk has amazing silky texture: after I use it, my skin is soft and velvety. Unlike other makeup removers, Chanel cleansing milk does not irritate my skin: it doesn’t get red, there are no breakouts, no stinging. Sometimes I don’t even use night cream after I clean my face because it is that gentle and moisturizing. Lait Confort’s moisturizing qualities are due to Arum Lily Extract. Although it’s gentle it cleanses skin deeply and thoroughly: apparently, it’s all thanks to de-pollution qualities of Tulip Tree extract. I don’t know anything about tulip trees, but it’s extract works!
Chanel Eyeliner in 20 Espresso
Chanel Eyeliner: detached sharpener
Chanel Eyeliner: closer look at the sharpener
Before I bought this eyeliner, I was never a fan of ones – they all seemed to require too much skill and precision. However, Chanel eyeliner literally changed my life in terms of makeup routine – it made it so much easier and faster.
The purchase of this eyeliner was rather spontaneous: I was buying something else at Nordstrom and saw this beautiful product, thought about it for like two minutes and decided I wanted it. When it arrived and I tried it, I couldn’t be happier. I got it in limited 20 Espresso color (hurry, it won’t last long), which is very rich, dark brown. I like that there is no undertones in it like, for example, in Dior Crayon Eyeliner in brown: it’s, as claimed, pure espresso. This color works perfectly with my medium skin and brown eyes.
Before I talk about application, let me tell you about the product itself. This eyeliner is sleek and elegant – it will fit easily in any cosmetic bag. It looks more like a 19th century lady pencil rather an eyeliner – very feminine. It is super easy to use – you open it, twist it to the right – the color comes out, twist it to the left – the color comes in. On the other end of the pencil there is an awesome surprise which I didn’t know about until I read the description: a built-in sharpener which you can detach! Now, ladies, isn’t that amazing? I’ve always had problems with remembering to put my sharpener in the cosmetic bag and I don’t have to remember anymore.
