Chantecaille Firming Sun Cream SPF 30

Having very pale skin you would think sunscreen a must for me, however every sunscreen I have tried breaks me out. Enter Chantecaille Firming Sun Cream SPF 30.
Grace from did a great review on this product and kindly posted the ingredients (for someone who has sensitive/acne prone skin, knowing the ingredients is essential, I’m very appreciative of blogs who post them).
This comes in a pot container and would appear as a thick cream, however it has an almost whipped texture and feels quite light on, it sinks in with ease and there is no sticky or greasy residue. I’ve worn this daily for a while and have had no breakouts or adverse reactions from it. On the days it has been really hot I have not turned into some greasy sweaty beast.
It would seem perfect but for one simple problem, its does not provide a moisturising enough base for my dehydrated skin. Used alone its perfect, when I go to apply foundation it goes on a bit uneven, patchy. The only product I can use on top of it is my RBR tinted moisturiser, however some days I need heavier coverage. I didn’t feel like I was getting the most from this so gave it to my mother who will benefit more from it as her skin is in much better condition than mine. So overall, despite the upsetting price (£77), I do think this is a really good product, it just wasn’t for me.

I bought this from SpaceNK


  1. Oh, shame it didn't work so well for you. I don't often use foundation, so I have no problems with it. If you find an spf 30 that you prefer, I'd love to read about it.

  2. Hi Grace,

    I just bought the Becca one so will let you know if that is any good x
