Chanel Tan? Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel Bronzing Make Up Base Review

I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick up this Cream Bronzer from Chanel – the Bronze Universel is one of those things I said I’d buy one day, but finally got round to it when Debenhams had 10% off recently.

This has lots of positive reviews, and I wasn’t sure if I’d like it – I pretty much dislike any bronzer too orange or too shimmery.

They say:

The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favorite CHANEL foundation.


It comes in a large plastic pot, and you get 30g of product. I was surprised by how big the post actually is.

Despite being a plastic pot, its still very heavyweight and very sleek, typical of classic Chanel packaging.


I used this with my fingers (its ok) and with a blusher brush (synthetic) and it worked pretty well!

The texture of this bronzer I think, its quite hard – barely a cream bronzer to be honest because its so firm.Nevertheless, this meant that I picked up just a little product and the overall result was just very natural.

It looks like poo. How does it NOT look like poo?


The colour is a light toned bronze – is it orange? In my opinion, yes, there is a light orange tone to it – its not ugly at all but I still think its there.

Its light so I think it works lovely on pale skinned ladies but its good on my medium toned skin – just a bit more natural than on a fair gal.


Overall this is the bronzing product I can use EVERY DAY. Its natural, quick and easy to use.




This is £28 and I bought it from Debenhams from a really really scary Chanel lady.
