Chanel Micro Hydra Beauty Sérum is a product to love both for its minimalist, but glamorous design that is typical for Chanel cosmetics, and for its multi-purpose function. As its name suggests, it is meant to be used as a serum under your day or night cream, but it can do much more for you!
The lightly scented aqua-light Micro Hydra Beauty Sérum is loaded with micro-droplets of the Camellia japonica extract, that Chanel refers to as Camellia Alba Polyfractioned Active (PFA). The serum also contains Blue Ginger PFA. Both substances act as powerful anti-oxidants and together with the serums other softening ingredients, they help to replenish the skin and let it keep its moisture level throughout the day. The micro-droplets are supposed to help the skin absorb the Micro Hydra Beauty Sérum's precious substances. If anything, they add to the luxurious feel and look of this beauty product.
Indeed, the serum is quickly absorbed by all skin types and leaves the skin replenished to the degree that adding a day or night cream doesn't seem necessary.
We love to use it as an eye cream (just be a bit more careful in order not to get product into the eye). In fact, we found that it hydrates sensitive and even more demanding skin around eyes much better and longer lasting than any other creams we've tried.
It can be applied under BB-creams and other tinted moisturisers to add a layer of moisture to normal or mixed skins. Perfect for those hectic mornings or when heading to the gym. It's also great to wear under sun lotion.
Furthermore, Chanel Micro Hydra Beauty Sérum can be used as a mask to add instant moisture to your skin. Apply all over your face and neck and sink into a warm hot bath!
If you want to get even more out of your Chanel Micro Hydra Beauty Sérum, try using it on your cuticles after your next home-manicure.
We simply love this product. Tell us what you think!
