New Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF 50 Anti-Glycation Primer
Whatever, I love Chantecaille's Firming Suncream SPF 30, so I was interested in having a look at the new SPF 50 Primer. It smells beautiful (lightly of roses, like much of the rest of Chantecaille's skincare) and leaves no white cast on the skin at all (the protection is from the chemical sunscreens avobenzone, octisalate and oxtinoxate). The texture is very silicone-heavy, which means it glides over the skin effortlessly and would be a good base for foundation. Personally my skin doesn't tend to do too well with this sort of formula, so I'm hoping very hard that Chantecaille do not intend to discontinue the Firming Suncream SPF 30.
The Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF 50 Anti-Glycation Primer costs the same as the Firming Suncream SPF 30, at an expensive £75. I'm willing to pay this for a summer moisturiser that protects my skin without aggravating it.
