There are very few phenomenal brands that have over the years continued to outdo themselves like Chanel. Changing with the times while staying true to the brand is the definition of the 21st-century struggle—but Chanel is a brand that continues to successfully reinvent itself and provide their consumers nothing short of the absolute best.
Season after season, the iconic fashion house debuts exquisite new designs, each revolutionary yet infused with the classic essence that’s so utterly Chanel. The same has to be said for their Sublimage Skincare range.
What makes the Sublimage Skincare range Unique?
Chanel Sublimage is a complete skincare collection that promises to give comprehensive anti-aging benefits. The main ingredient is the Vanilla Planifolia – unearthed in Madagascar, which features rare and powerful ephemeral molecules that disappear as soon as they appear during the fruits’ ripening process. These molecules have been researched and proved to transmit their infinite revitalizing power to the skin.
These molecules are harvested and refined by a unique process created by Chanel Research to harnesses the power of this potent botanical fruit for its targeted anti-aging benefits. The result is the enriched Planifolia Poly fractionated Active (which basically means that the ingredient gets broken down into such tiny particles that get absorbed and work quickly). Intensely revitalized, the skin regains its strength, radiance and perfection.
Who is the Range For?
The Chanel Sublimage range was designed to suit all skin types, but the majority of their focus has been placed on restoring and revitalizing the skin. Because of this, the range as a whole will benefit those with anti-aging skin concerns, as well as those with mature or dry skin types, best. The range also works wonders in rejuvenating especially during winter when the skin faces harsh cold conditions and is need of moisture.
The Chanel Sublimage range includes everything you need from luxurious mists to serums, creams, masks and scrubs in order to create a rich and nourishing skincare routine. The most popular and well-known products from the line include the L’extrait De Crême, the La Brume and of course, the original La Crème. Chanel however continuously work to add more products like Sublimage facial cleansers and Sublimage face scrub (released November 3rd 2019) to the line to suit the rising needs of their consumers.
Chanel also seems to keep the products in the Sublimage collection quite versatile in such a way that you could use one product like the 3-in-1 products (toner-boosting lotion-mist) instead of having to purchase both the Chanel Sublimage Toner and Mist. The versatility in their uses makes it so that you don’t necessarily need to buy the whole range.
Chanel Sublimage Textures
The Sublimage creams in this Chanel collection are tailored for different skin types.
Starting off with the L’extrait De Crème, this is Chanel’s most intensely concentrated formula that was designed specifically for those with extra dry, mature skin. As their most luxurious moisturizer in the entire Sublimage range, this product was designed to revitalize, regenerate, restore and protect the skin in a short period of time.
During clinical evaluations, the L’extrait De Crème was tested to see how this cream helped with dryness, dullness and uneven skin tone. After four weeks of use, 41 women found that their skin contours appeared more defined by 35% and dark spots diminished by 32%.
Other benefits you can expect to see: increased hydration, radiance, and a more even and firm skin tone. And because it’s Chanel, the company went even further to now offer two new textures in the range; Sublimage La Crème Texture Fine tailored for oily skin and Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême for dry and dehydrated skin.
For normal skin, the collection features their original La Crème, which today, is available in a number of different types and variations.
Other products in the collection that come handy especially in your winter skincare include the Sublimage Masque. The Sublimage Essential Revitalizing Mask is a treatment in itself. Dense, velvety and extremely soft, the formula offers a relaxing and nourishing beauty step for radiant and plumped skin. Best used as an overnight mask.
The Sublimage cleanser has the same mild vanilla hue as the other Sublimage products, which promises to make your cleansing routine quite therapeutic. Once you start massaging it in, the L’Huile-en-Gel de Démaquillage gel transforms into a luxurious oil.
Ever so subtly, it rids skin of impurities and makeup, even waterproof makeup. Next, the cotton cloth packed with the product, moistened with warm water, gently exfoliates the skin and leaves it perfectly cleansed, soft, soothed and incredibly luminous. Finally, precious Camellia and Jojoba oils in the ingredients bring a soothing touch and incomparable comfort.
Packaged in an aesthetically pleasing chic frosted glass bottle with a sturdy matte gold cap and a solid pump, Sublimage L’essence Lumière Serum is an exquisitely sensorial facial serum that radiates evens and perfects the look of skin. The serum itself is thick like a night cream or lotion. However, it absorbs easily and quickly without any residue or greasiness and looks beautiful even under makeup.
According to Chanel, the serum features Natural Anthyllis Extract, a French herbal legendary Alpine plant that thrives in extreme conditions by deriving strength exclusively from light.
This powerful ingredient helps address skin imperfections and shield against environmental stressors. Combined with the antioxidant properties of Intense Vanilla Planifolia Water, nourishing Shea Butter and deeply hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, the sublime formula helps skin better reflect light for the look of a smoother, more even complexion with restored radiance.
