Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder Review
Hey Beauties!
How is everyone enjoying summer? well i would say summer but here in sunny scotland….its not sunny haha!
We all have that one product we can live without, that one product that we dread to hit pan on and for me its the Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder, probably my most favourite powder ive ever used big claims i know but its literally perfect.

Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder Review

The Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder goes on without translucent and leaves smooth, matte finish.
What i really like about this powder is that it has micro-fine light perfecting powders which mean its so finely milled it almost feel like a cream so when you take pictures or see it in person all you get is a really flawless finish. The powder also makes pores seemingly invisible and never settles into fine lines which is always a good thing. The Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder contains extracts of Inca Inchi Seed Oil and Brazilian Pepper-Tree Seed Oil for hydration and comfortable wear.

Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder Review

This is just one of those products that you never get tired of using. I usually apply this if i’m getting a bit shiny because lately ive been finding my skin is getting oilier than usual. I find that this powder seems to last longer during the day as well when i use other powders i find myself using them more often throughout the day but with the Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder i only use it maybe twice in a day and you can see the powder looks almost new even though ive had it for quite a while now.

Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder Swatch
As you can see it comes out of the compact with a slight pink tone which i think is great because it seems to brighten up the skin but contains no actual colour once its buffed into the skin you just get that really nice matte skin without it looking chalky like some other powders tend to do. This powder can be used by anyone as its clear so there is no worry of looking ashy for darker skintones.
Lastly i think packaging is really important when your are paying for higher end products and this doesnt disappoint. The Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder has an almost sculpted compact with a large enough mirror to see into so when you take this out in public it looks fantastic!
You can find the Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder at SpaceNK if you live in the UK and it is a whopping £62 but all in all totally worth it its not something you would buy on a whim but if you do buy it its a fantastic investment 
Pressed Powder or Loose Powder?

  • I see this more and more these days! Celebrities and influencers saying "this cured my skin it's amazing" but then don't talk about the fact that they get monthly facials and use acids and retinol on a daily basis. Yeah I totally believe you it's down to that crappy physical scrub you used once 🙄😒 What's worse is when I see celebs/influencers promoting supplementation that isn't even proven to work! Supplementation is literally useless unless you are deficient. No your hair won't grow to super lenghts because you a gummy once a day.

Don't get me started on these "fit teas" that are essentially expensive laxatives .

  • I get asked if oily skin should moisturise a lot and I'm here to tell you it's a resounding  YES!

I know the idea of making your skin oily again doesn't sound like fun but hear me out. Stripping your skin won't do you any good our skin needs to contain oil it's essential for skin health.

By taking care of our skin and using a light moisturiser say in a gel form for example will actually help to cut down on the excess oil as your skin won't be trying to protect itself when you strip the oil away.. Its really interesting when you realise a majority of oily skin types are really dehydrated so we need to look for moisturisers that are light in texture and contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin etc. I personally love the @cliniqueuk Hydrating Jelly it's a great serum/moisturiser for oily skin.

Check out the 2nd episode of weekly skincare routine video! i will hopefully be making these every Saturday at 8pm UK time! make sure to keep an eye out.
  • I hate to say it but skincare is not a quick fix you can't use a product 3 times and expect miraculous results.

I see a lot of people using products sporadically and then getting annoyed when they don't see any results even though it's only been about 4 weeks of use.

While hyaluronic acid serums will show results right away you will look plump and hydrated, HA is generally an exception to the rule.

A majority of actives will take time to show results. Take retinol for example you might see a small improvement early on but it can take upto 6 months for you to notice a profound difference.

You need to be consistent in your use just because something doesn't work right away it doesn't mean it's useless, we also have to manage our expectations as well sometimes we hope for too much and are let down by the results. 
Skincare can only do so much so it's important to have realistic expectations.

It might not look like much is happening to start with but you need to keep going you need to push past the idea of "this isn't working" 
Think to yourself why do you think it's not working? Are you using it often enough? Are you using enough product? What are your expectations? .

  • Can you believe that it's been 10 years since the launch of @emmahardieskincare 😱😱 Usually Moringa Cleansing Balm is a gateway product to the brand because of its cult status but for me it was the other way around. This is the last product in the range for me to try out 🤣

I use it for the first time during my Instagram live the other day and I really liked it. It removed everything really well and didnt leave my skin tight or dehydrated like some cleaners do.

A day doesnt go by where I don't use an oil based cleanser as they just work best for my skin. It's a common misconception that oily skin shouldnt use oils but it's actually really good to use an oil cleanser as it doesn't disturb your skin barrier and it's much easier to cleaner oil with oil.

Moringa Cleansing Balm contains a mixture of ingredients such as Moringa seed extract, an emollient which is rich in nourishing and moisturizing fatty oleic acid as well as wild sea fennel and vitamin e.

The only real problem I have with this cleanser is the addition of fragrant essential oils which in my opinion don't really need to be in this formulation. There are a few citrus oils in the cleanser such as orange, mandarin and neroli which are not only irritating but can cause photosensitivity. 
I would say to leave this as a PM cleanser because I would hate to see what would happen if someone didn't cleanse this off properly and went out in the sun and didn't have a proper sunscreen on.

Apart from the addition of fragrant essential oils I really liked how this cleansed and how it felt after it was removed. My skin isn't really sensitive to essential oils even though I do try to avoid them where possible.

If you do have sensitive and reactive skin I would maybe try a sample of this cleanser before buying just incase.

  • It's not enough to be just using a moisturiser in your skincare routine. 
There seems to be a common misunderstanding that cleanse tone and moisturise is enough while it's a good starting point it's not a long term plan if you want to keep your skin tight, plump and wrinkle free you need to be using actives.

A good moisturiser just hydrates and seals moisture into the skin it really doesn't do much more than that.

If you're serious about a good skincare routine and you're 30+ you need to be looking at actives like Retinol, AHAs, Vitamin C etc 
These ingredients have an actual effect on the skin some of them stimulate collagen which depletes as we get older, some help to firm the skin and others will help with any pigmentation etc 
You don't need to be spending £50-£100 on a moisturiser because something £10+ is gonna do the same job. A M
moisturiser is one of the steps you can skimp on and not spent much money.
