My top 5 CHANEL products

This luxurious brand needs no introduction, an epitome of class, and absolute love of all perfume and makeup lovers out there; my top 5 CHANEL products will make you desire for more.

It is known that Coco Chanel had a singular vision of beauty. “If you’re sad, if you are disappointed in love, put on your makeup, give yourself some beauty care, put on lipstick, and attack,” she once offered. However, even though most of us, including me, want all the CHANEL products, our wallet’s might not always agree on this. So, here are my top 5 CHANEL products that I suggest you invest in, should you be interested in joining the CHANEL family.

CHANEL La Mousse Anti-pollution Cleansing Cream-to-foam 

CHANEL La Mousse Anti-pollution Cleansing Cream-to-foam

I’ve been using this cleanser for the last 18 months, and I have to say that this may be my new holy grail cleanser. The texture is a thick, silky white cream and a little bit goes a long way. It immediately turns into a pearlescent lather upon contact with water which refreshes skin and gently removes traces of makeup, sunscreen and pollutants.

If you’re concerned about the price, it truly only needs a small amount, so the 150ml tube will last you a long time.

CHANEL CC Cream Super Active Complete Correction SPF 50

CHANEL CC Cream Super Active Complete Correction SPF 50

This was the product that introduced me to the house of CHANEL’s over two years ago and started my long-lasting love affair with the brand.

A complete beauty cream with five superpowers: it unifies, moisturizes, corrects, protects and boosts skin’s glow, day after day. This is my go-to product for summer and especially when I travel.

CHANEL Le Volume Revolution Mascara

CHANEL Le Volume Revolution Mascara

Le Volume Revolution is famous for giving eyelashes the flutter they’ve always wanted, minus the clumps. Its innovative wand ensures even distribution. Personally, this is the best CHANEL mascara and one of the best mascaras in the market.

CHANEL Les Beige Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

 CHANEL Les Beige Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

This product is one of my absolute favourites and one of the most versatile CHANEL products because you can use it on your face or body. You can apply it before your foundation as a base and on top of it as a bronzer. Light-reflecting pigments create a natural-looking radiance. The formula is also non-comedogenic, meaning it helps avoid clogged pores and breakouts.

CHANEL’s Coco Mademoiselle l’eau privée

CHANEL's Coco Mademoiselle l’eau privée

One of the latest fragrances launched by CHANEL, this is perfect for wearing at night and during the day.

Composed by CHANEL In-House Perfumer Creator Olivier Polge, this soft floral-woody fragrance celebrates the sensuality of night with enveloping notes of white musk illuminated by soft jasmine absolute and rose petal accord. I love this sent, it is beautiful and seductive and goes a long way.


All of the above CHANEL products are available from the CHANEL Beauty & Fragrance Boutique at V&A Waterfront and selected Woolworths stores nationwide and Woolworths online.
