Chanel Precision Soleil Identite self tan for the face


I recently picked up this self tan in Bronze. I was looking for a good self tan for the face, I've been using up my Dove Summer glow and I didn't want to use it on my face (waaay too orange!). I read some rave reviews on Makeupalley.com and also a few people I know from my favourite forum really rate it too.

I plumped for the darker of the two colours as lots of the reviews suggested 'Golden' was too subtle. At £25.54 per bottle the last thing I wanted was a hint of colour!

I applied the evening I bought it, I went to bed feeling nervous about what colour my face would be in the morning. I've never had much success with fake tan without a tint to guide application. I'm extremely pleased to report that I woke up with a lovely and very believable tan on my face. You can see the results in my everyday make up post below.

I'd highly recommend this if your looking for a facial tanner. It is expensive but the colour is very good and as an extra bonus it smells nice. Hurrah!

    Hi, just read your review of the Chanel fake tan. I bought this yesterday in Bronze as I'm looking for something that will give my face a natural colour.

    I did a patch test on my underarm last night and I'm terrified as it looks really dark! Can't decide if I should keep it & try it or change it for the lighter one.

    may I ask what colour of skin you have naturally? I'm fair with a slight tan as just returned from holiday. All the blogs I've read say to use the bronze but I'm just a little nervous.

    Thanks.

  4. Hi Kirsten, I am fair too. I think I probably had a bit of a tan when I used it. I haven't used it so far this year so I'm going from memory I'm afraid.

    I found it to be quite a natural result but I think it you are hesitant then maybe it's best to go back for the lighter colour whilst you still can? Everything I read suggest that the lighter version gave a very subtle result and based on how I got on with Bronze I think it would have been *too subtle*. Hand on heart it definitely didn't make me look unnaturally dark.

    Would it help you if I did some before and after pictures of it if I apply it tonight? Do you think that would help you decide? I'm happy to do it if you feel it would help you.
