What it says on the box:
The texture of the cream. It's quite a thick cream in the pot, but it melts into the skin easily and leaves a comfortable matte finish on my dry skin.
Rubbed in. There's no white cast or shine.
I don't notice much firming action, but then my skin isn't particularly slackened yet. This is an expensive product, but it's worth it to me for a face cream with decent sun protection for the summer months that feels cosmetically elegant on my skin and doesn't clog my pores or leave my skin feeling dry.
I bought mine from SpaceNK because I needed to buy it quickly, and there is also a Chantecaille counter in Fenwicks. If you can, I would buy from Fenwicks, as the Chantecaille counter there is very good with samples with a purchase, whereas SpaceNK are not. I asked for samples of other Chantecaille skincare when I was buying this, and was told that they had none, which I think is bloody awful service if you're spending this much on skincare.
