Despite makeup taking a backseat in 2020, this Chanel cream bronzer (opens in new tab) still proved a huge hit with John Lewis shoppers.

The department store has revealed its bestselling beauty products of the year and sitting amongst a slew of skincare was the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream (opens in new tab)

It's hardly surprising when you consider the versatility and bona fide tanned effect this cream-gel imparts.

First, the Les Beiges Healthy Glow can be used in place of foundation (opens in new tab) to warm up any skin tone without a heavy fake-tan effect. A finer brush nuzzled into the hollows of your cheekbones delivers the most natural kind of contouring. 

Second, when buffed into skin, the caramel shade has luminous J-Love vibes minus any telltale shimmer flecks. Better still, it dries down to a velvety long-lasting finish without being cakey. 

Of course, we know that makeup only sits well on skin that's been prepped and primed with moisturiser (opens in new tab) first.  

Bestselling skincare for John Lewis shoppers included Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex (opens in new tab). This serum is the sidekick to your skin's overnight repair processes and floods cells with probiotics, moisturising hyaluronic acid (opens in new tab)molecules and energising yeast extract for skin that positively radiates health when you wake up.
