Chantecaille Protection Naturelle SPF 46+++- a GENIUS product!

I was always in a predicament whenever I wanted to reapply my spf on my face but have a face full of makeup on. How do I do it without ruining my makeup?

Then I came across a genius product from Chantecaille (thank goodness they sell the brand in Dubai now). It is called the Chantecaille Protection Naturallelle SPF 46 PA+++.

This product is a life saver. I bought the shade ‘light’ which is a translucent powder containing spf 46 and which contains a built in brush that is perfect to touch up your makeup in the middle of the day while simultaneously providing high level protection.

It seriously doesn’t get better than this. I usually apply a BB cream with spf every morning before I go to work and by midday I use the Chantecaille powder on top which adds protection especially if I leave work and am facing the harsh sunlight.

Only drawback about this product is it’s steep price (around AED 344). It comes in 3 shades- Light,  Bronze and a Rose shade.

Products I regret buying…

There are 2 products that I have recently purchased that I really regret buying.

First is the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Face Mist. Now this seemed really promising as it is clarifying and also has anti-aging benefits. The reason why I didn’t like it at all is because it left my face really red once I applied it and I felt a horrible burning sensation. I used it a couple of times but then stopped as I thought no product should be making my face feel this way.  Such a waste. 
Has anyone of my readers tried this?

Another product I regret buying is the EE cream from Estee Lauder. This is a meh product to me because it did nothing for my skin. It’s as if I haven’t applied anything, had no coverage whatsoever. I am all for light coverage but not no coverage as any moisturiser can do that. Anyone a fan of this product?
