Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel from The Gossip Darling

Hello darlings!! Hope you all had a great weekend. First day of Spring yesterday and it was freezing in New York. Come on Spring!

I truly can't gush enough over Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel. Quite honestly, it's the holy grail of products and it's worth every penny of the $50 price tag. My Mom and I stopped by a Macy's counter totally on a mission to pick up this product. After soooo many beauty bloggers and YouTube vloggers recommended it, I wanted to see what the fuss was about. I mean, we all know Chanel is the definition of chic, elegance, and luxury but did this product live up to the Chanel reputation? The results: YES YES YES! (Can you tell I love it?)

The wonderful lady at the counter was super informative and let's just say, she 100% knew what she was doing. She answered every question I had and sat me down in a chair so I can see this baby in action. I'm obsessed with contouring and highlighting and it makes a total difference in my overall look. I've tried both cream and powder formulas. Which product I use is 100% dependent on the season and what's happening with my skin. Lately, I have been having a lot of acne breakouts so I've been having to use Proactiv everyday. My Proactiv routine totally helps solve the acne issue but it also makes my skin super dry. When my skin is extremely dry, it starts to flake and get patchy. In this case, I switch from a powder to a cream based bronzer.

Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel is excellent quality and smells absolutely amazing. Every time I apply it, I always comment on how good it smells! The scent is very light though and definitely isn't too overpowering. The formula is highly pigmented and a little bit goes a long way. It's 100% buildable so I recommended starting off with a little bit and then continue to add if you need to. When I first tried the product at the Macy's counter, the lighting was absolutely terrible. My Mom and I kept adding layer after layer because the lighting in the store was so dark that we couldn't see much results on our faces. The look we did see was subtle so we went with it. When we left the store and were in natural light, we were like whoa! Hahaha. We still absolutely loved the look but it was a bit too much. Our method is to take baby steps! The formula is very creamy and smooth and is great for every complexion.

Our salesperson recommended we use this brush, but I decided to use my BareMinerals Smoothing Face brush. I still get the same effect and I saved some money because I already had the brush. The partnership between these two is amazing and make everything smooth and easily blendable.

There's nothing more that I love than free products. Our lady was so sweet and offered some free samples. She gave me the Hydra Beauty Creme Riche and Le Volume de Chanel Mascara. She totally knew what she was doing because I totally fell in love with both products. Hahaha. They both have been officially added to my wish list!

Have you tried Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel? I would love to hear from you!


  1. I have very fair skin, so even though I'm dying to try out this one I'm not sure it would work. :( Read somewhere that it might work if you applied it under your foundation if you were very fair, so perhaps I'll try that. It looks stunning!

    Make sure to check back after you have used it for awhile to tell us how to best apply and work with it! XO

    1. I'll definitely circle back with an update! Yes, the saleslady also said to try it under my foundation. The quality is just so amazing! Thanks so much for reading. xo
