Beauty product LOVE - Chantecaille's 'Just Skin'

I am impressed. Very. Having read all the reviews and hype about this gorgeous tinted moisturiser (not actually a true description really as I would say it was more of a foundation) I bit the bullet and forked out quite a lot of $$$ for this which is in reality about the size of a small tube of toothpaste!!

However, the old saying is correct - you get what you pay for in life and I have to say I love it.

Chantecaille's 'Just Skin' is well, er, - just like your skin, only better. It covers fine lines, imperfections and pores and looks as if you are wearing no make up at all which is what I have always tried to achieve with foundations etc. and never quite got there.

Initially, I was given a sample of the colour 'Bliss' but found it too light and went back to the lovely SA at Mecca Cosmetica in the city and now have 'Nude' which is perfect for my skin tone. It's easy to use and buildable too giving you a heavier coverage if you need it but at the same time keeps that flawless finish. I also dust a light covering of pressed mineral powder over the centre of my face to take off the slight sheen and to make it last all day. And a huge bonus - it smells lovely too.

Have to say, I'm hooked!

P.S. No, I was not paid or sponsored for this post but if the kind people at Chantecaille would like to send me a year's supply of Just Skin (in Nude please) I wouldn't say no!!

Anyone else love this or are you true to another tinted moisturiser/foundation that you'd never be without?


  1. Would you say it was better for warm-colored skin or cool? I ask because I need to shift to a bluer, i.e., cooler formulation.

  2. Hi Lisa - I think that they cover the spectrum in shades - the one they gave me to try (sample) - 'Bliss' was a little too cool for me, so am sure there would be one to suit you. Even after the SA tries it out on my face I always ask for a small sample to try myself at home... see what you think. I'd be interested to know if you like it. Sarah x

  3. I have never heard of this line
    are they organic?

    Love the name...sounds so chic!

  4. I love tinted moisturiser, I haven't seen this range in the UK, I love the packaging though.

  5. That sounds promising - I find most tinted moisturisers feel a bit yucky after half an hour so I give them a miss, but I could be persuaded by this one.

  6. Wrinkle erasing?....I'm off to check it out!xx

  7. It sounds gorgeous - might have to try and snaffle a sample from somewhere.

  8. Thank you SO much for your tip Re: ANTA. Perfect rugs. Just what I was looking for, blogging rocks! xxxxx

  9. I am going to write this comment then rush to google to find the product. Sounds like just the type of product for my 53 year old skin! Thank you for the review!

  10. I've been a fan of the Laura Mercier one for years and recently bough the Niveo Q10 which I ADORE to bits.

    Might see if I can get a sample of this one...

  11. S,
    You've read my mind. I was just thinking about replacing my current tinted moisturizer. I saw Just Skin in the Mecca C catalogue and it sounded too good to be true.

    I will definitely have to investigate though, based on your experience.
