Chanel UV Essentiel Multi-Protection Daily Defender

I’ve covered SPF extensively in the last few years so this year I’m going to focus primarily on light facial SPFs, suitable for daily use as well as holiday – and these from Chanel are kicking us off.

These two new formulas, available in both SPF30 and 50, offer UVA and UVB protection, long UVA, infrared and indoor lighting protection.

It’s a very light, liquid formula and utilises zinc and titanium dioxide in nano form. Suitable for all skin types and colours but I would test the 50 on your skin before you purchase if you’re very dark, it may be slightly ash. The 30 seems completely fine though. They both work fine under foundation.

The bottles and descriptions are very similar to the current Chanel SPFs but these are not released until 27th May so don’t confuse these with the current offering on counter.

Chanel UV Essentiel Multi-Protection Daily Defender is £42.00 for 30ml and will be available nationwide at the end of the month.
