Have you ever wondered how the French have for so long monopolised the world’s perception of female beauty? For years women have questioned, is it their diet, their fashion, genuine¬†poise or in fact….their skincare and cosmetics?

Chantecaille, the leading French beauty range has been hyped as the holy-grail for women and might be about to give us our answers. Their latest concoction and addition to the nano gold range is the new firming treatment. Anti ageing, hydrating, wrinkle reducing, may be a familiar advertisment but this is practically the small print on their new firming cream. The product contains stem cells which help the skin’s own stem cell’s renew and the DNA revive as well as Microalgae Dunaliella Salina which boosts energy back into the skin.

The product uses a number of other highly scientific and complicated ingredients but the most interesting of all is the ‘gold’ one. Apparently, gold has a medicinal history which goes back to ancient times and gold salts have now been associated with calming arthritis ,while gold nano bullets are being used to help cure cancer. This might explain why the nano gold range are famous for their price tag.


The ingredients seem to be somewhat superior to other moisturisers and the results certainly are. The cream, which is slightly perfumed, within a week produces a softer, dewier, plumper skin texture. It’s been proven to reduce deep wrinkles by 45% while at the same time acting as a strong moisturiser which is able to hydrate the skin for 24 hours. My skin has never felt so soft and the detoxification ingredients means that my skin is also purer and smoother. Stem cell’s have been piped as the latest breakthrough in ageing and Chantecaille’s new addition to the powerhouse Nano range looks set to pioneer the way.

So now the beauty secret is out and who said “Il faut souffrir pour etre belle?”
