This is amazing for acne skin/acne prone
I purchased this on a trip to Bath, and was recommended this by the manager at the Bath store. She knew her stuff, especially about skincare. I initially went into buy a new foundation, but then once speaking to the manager she said I should buy skincare to sort my skin concerns first.
She recommended that I went back to the basics of cleanse, serum and moisturise. She told me I could add in an exfoliator after a few weeks, but I needed to get my cleanse, serum, moisturise right before I started exfoliating.
She recommended me a basic cleanser, and then to use this after cleansing. This serum is amazing, it's not greasy and so light weight. I noticed such a difference after a few days and my acne has completely cleared up. I hardly get any spots, and I am so happy. I am currently pregnant to, so my hormones are skin are everywhere and this keeps it in check. Out of all three products I brought this is the miracle profits and if never go without it again. Yes it's expensive but worth every penny. I think the key to skincare is only using a few quality key products and sticking to them. I have changed my skincare routine so much in the past, and this is what makes acne worse. You need to keep it simple!

I was a bit skeptical before buying this as serums usually leave my skin looking a bit oily but this is not just another typical serum. I have been applying it at night, without any moisturizer on top, and every morning I wake up with baby skin. All blemishes or red spots disappear and my skin feels extremely soft. Definitely worth it!

Calming and hydrating
I have been using this for 4 years now and despite toying with a few others, always keep a bottle of this on the go and it remains my favourite. My skin is quite sensitive but otherwise "normal" and I find the gel formulation and unobtrusive rose scent incredibly calming. To echo another reviewer, it is expensive, but I will continue to use this until I find something better... so far, nothing else has come close. I have not tried the arbutin version as don't feel the need to upgrade what already suits my skin so well.

Best hydrating serum
On my second bottle now. I use it before la mer the concentrate. It is great for hydrating and soothing my skin. Will keep using it until I find another product.

I like this product very much for its incredibly soothing properties. After a recent "allergic reaction" to another skincare range that I was was trialling, I returned to Chantecaille.This product help to calm the irritation and reduce the itchiness, redness and overall heat of the skin. You can use it all over the face including the eye area. It smells lovely and leaves your skin feeling cool, hydrated and dewy fresh. I actually prefer the version with Arbutin in it, though I can't exactly say why. In the summer I use it alone under a tinted moisturiser or the chantecaille primer with SPF50, in winter I use it under flower harmonising cream. A lovely product.
