Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum

For the most part, I feel like I have been able to keep my skin under control when it comes to break outs and skin tone.  However, I have very little control of how my skin is going to react to the constant changing weather in the city.  Because of that, my combination skin just goes from dry to oily to dry within days.  So trying to keep my in care routine constant without having to change between 20 different products from day to day was really difficult.  Until now.

About two months ago I was invited to a Chanel get together at my local Nordstroms counter where they had their amazing specialists come in for makeup and skin care consultations.  While I was there, I had mentioned to them the issue I was having with the random dry patches around my nose and cheeks, but also made sure that they knew I needed something that would also balance my oily spots.

For that, they tried the Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum all over my face before they applied any makeup on me.  And let me tell you, it felt amazing! I have already been using the Chanel Hydra Creme as my day time moisturizer, so when I pair the two together it just creates this flawless base for my skin.

"At the heart of the Hydra Beauty range: Carnellia Alba PFA, an active ingredient that promotes optimal moisture retention within skin cells.  When combined with an improved, more powerful version of Blue Ginger PFA, a vital antioxidant, the perfect synergy of ultimate hydration and protecting is created.  With added Hyaluronic Acid, the Serum immediately hydrates and protects the skin.  Fresh and soothing, it comforts and boosts overall radiance." -

Upon instant application, you get this refreshing, cooling feeling that just adds that perfect soothing moisture to your skin.  My skin immediately absorbed all of the product.  And because of it's lightweight formula, it felt incredibly comfortable and natural.

After using the product daily for almost two months, I honestly did notice a difference in the texture of my skin after just a week of use.  It's never felt so smooth and looked so radiant where I actually get random compliments from people.  There are so many lazy mornings where I can just apply the Hydra Serum (along with the Hydra Creme) and walk out of the house without any foundation or concealer (which is definitely a new found confidence).

Along with being incredible on it's own, I've noticed that it's a fantastic base/primer for my foundation when I do want to where makeup.  I have honestly stopped all of my other face primers because this is the perfect balance of moisture and works just as well, if not better, than any other primer in my collection.

The Chanel Hydra skin care collection has definitely been a staple for me and I will continue to use their products for as long as possible.
