CHANEL No. 5 after bath pressed powder

I know I’m not alone when I tell you that I love mostly anything Chanel-related! From cosmetics and scents to accessories and bags – they got it. Here’s to the Chanel No 5 After Bath Pressed Powder.




Coco Chanel No 5 After Bath Pressed Powder

This product actually has been lying around collecting dust for quite some time now. My mother got it as a christmas gift from her work once. When I ran into it a while back I got really happy, as Chanel products are so Instagram-worthy! ;) After taking my time getting to know this gorgeous packaging better through the lens of my trustworthy Canon, I decided to actually use the product – shocking, I know right!

As the name obviously implies, this pressed power is supposed to be used after taking a bath or shower. It can be applied all over the body and will leave your skin smooth and scented.





The Chanel No 5 After Bath Pressed Powder product sits inside a luxurious looking container, with a big gold CC logo engraved into the shiny black lid. Just to ensure you are actually using an authentic Chanel product. ;) The container comes in a black and white box with gold detailing, that I simply cannot throw away because it’s too beautiful – dang it, Chanel! The lid of the container opens with a rotating lid, revealing a big chunk of shimmering light baby pink pressed powder. Inside is also a very soft powder puff for application.








I use the provided applicator – the powder puff – to apply the product all over my body. A little bit goes a long way! The powder transfers from the container, to the power puff and then finally to your body seamlessly and it allows you to blend really well and thouroughly. Blending is a must, because when too much product is piled up, it will make you look a bit pale and pinkish. I especially like using this pressed powder after shaving as it will smoothen the skin even more! I seriously can’t stop touching my legs afterwards!




Chanel No. 5

The scent of this pressed powder is that of the iconic Chanel No 5. It is said to be a softer and more toned-down version, used to either have a hint of Number five around you, or to enhance the smell of the perfume when used together. Chanel No 5 is actually not one of my favorites. It reminds me of baby wipes, in a way. The perfume is just not my thing, but this pressed powder actually does smell really good after a while. It smells fresh and.. well.. clean!





This product will make your skin feel silky soft and smell like the iconic Chanel Number 5 scent. When blended well, your skin will look matte with a VERY subtle and sheer shimmer. You won’t be able to stop touching your skin, so I say this is a great product that does its job very well! Perfect for a night of relaxation and pampering yourself.

Chanel No 5 After Bath Pressed Powder retails for around €56,70, but it differs from store to store.


Do you use any after bath products?

    I recently bought the Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Hairmist, I need to figure out of they have an after bath pressed powder as well of this line! For me, personally, the N5 is a bit ti strong. I’m more of a Chance/Coco Mademoiselle Girl ;-)

      Yep! Coco Mademoiselle has been on top of my wishlist for years! No. 5 isn’t my favorite either, but my mom likes it. :)

    This has been a firm favourite of lovely wife for many years and she was devastated when they ceased production some while ago. Wherever possible I like to do things that make her smile and I know if I can find some stocks somewhere I can bring back that dazzling smile I love so much.
    Does anyone have any idea where there are any stocks of this left please?
    Many thanks

      Hi Robert, Nordstrom still sells this product! They only deliver to the USA though, so I don’t know if this is of any help!
      I spotted it on Amazon, too! :)

        Hi Denise. I have been in touch with Nordstrom and unfortunately they no longer have this item for sale.
        Thanks anyway.

          Aww, I’m so sorry! Good luck on your search anyway!

    Chanel no. 5 body powder, purchased at Macy’s in Clarksburg, WV, last December was packaged differently, I.e., all prior packaging was packaged in the USA, and NOT in a 5 oz. net weight container. The one purchased this past year was made in France at 5.11 oz. net weight, and the inside cover, I guess was meant to be shaken out, but I had to cut this open to Retrieve the powder! If this the new way of packaging, you have lost a faithful customer.

    ooooh lovely ! i have the loose powder version for after bath and i use it more than just then , in fact i use it a couple of times a day just because its soooo lovely !
    also ive read people say they have no idea how to get to the holes / siv bit so they can load the pad – the holes have a see through sticky plastic cover on them if you look carefully you will see there is a small tag bit coming off it , you pull it off ( whole sticky plastic cover ) then the small holes on the loose powder version are finaly able to be free to let out powder.
    it was hard to see that bit as its not marked in any way but its there , so girls no cutting or stabbing the holes lol :)
    you dont look covered in powder it melts right in. I tried some of the pinkish powder puff across my hubbys arm once when he was laying down with headache, hes a lot darker skinned than me and it still left no pink residue. so maybe all skin colours can use it with no build up talk colouring ?

    wonderfull stuff , it makes u want every product for the bath they do though boy am i skint now :)

    Question to those that have tried both versions, what’s best pressed powder or loose, at moment I’ve only tried loose and the sent us Amazing and application easy enough, because it’s loose powder the fragrance is very obvious I’m wondering if pressed is as good / smelling as strongly?
    Anyone who tried both versions leave a comment
    Thanks in advance :)

    Loose powder is easier to work with.
    The newest versions smell a bit more like eau premiere , older powders morelike EDP.
    All are amazing .
