I almost didn't want this to work because it's expensive and it's Chanel (name brand, overdone packaging) but I have to say it's an amazing product. I bought the Lift Serum, the Lift Day Cream (which I use very lightly in the day AND at night) and the eye cream. My skin is clearer, more even, more youthful (slightly lifted).
I've been using these three for the past three weeks. My skin is very sensitive (prone to rosacea eruptions, but not necessarily too red) but still oily in the t-zone.
I plan to buy it again!

I am 45 years old, have no issues with lines or winkles, but have noticed a really significant loss of tone to the lower part of my face over the last couple of years - which I think is actually far more aging than the odd smile line around the eyes.
I tried this product when it first came out in both the day cream and day lotion formulas and was pretty impressed with the moisturisation and plumping it delivered, but stopped using it due to the cost. I switched to good quality moisturisers without specific anti-aging properties but was sufficiently bothered by the deterioration in my skin tone to return to this after about 8-10 months. As someone else noted below, it's only when you stop using this that you realise just how very good it is. Within 5 days of restarting the lifting day cream I can already see a huge improvement in the firmness of my skin, and also reduction in lines/creasing on my neck.
I wish to god Chanel would do what Elemis do and make various sizes of this to get round the cost issue - the 50g jar is generous and lasts me a good 6 months but the current outlay of £88 is pretty steep - I'd like to see 30ml jars and possibly even a 20ml tube for gym bag and travel.
In summary unbeatable firming and tining, great moisturisation, no offensive fragrance - but need some more affordeable options sizewize.

My dog's name is Coco b/c she is brown/I'm not a sls associate: So creamy and beautiful to the touch. As for lift -it likely has hydralounic acid in ingredients. I bought pure HA cream at health food store (gel flakes vs cream) and it works equally well if not better at less of a price, but cheap version is smelly and no sunscreen and does not feel as luxurious (perhaps its b/c it is chanel and black packaging looks luxurious). That said I will re-buy and use sparingly so it last for 12 mos and I switch off chanel in am/cheap stuff at night since no suncreen as both lift (rather hydrate that appears lifting would be a more accurate description). Note HA topical has to be used continuously to produce its temporary hydration/fullness unless you have it injected by a professional in the form of juvederm or some other filler.

First of all, how amazing this product line feels on your skin, omg, I just love it!!! I had started using Estee Lauders Nite repair and creams, but I wasn't pleased with it, since the eye cream and face cream, including the nite kind, left my skin feeling like it needed hydration. Also,after using Estee's nite cream, the next morning, my skin felt so dry, I hated it!! After getting samples of this line, from my Chanel girl, I feel in love!! My skin feels so amazing and hydrated. I just can't believe how beautiful my skin looks now. I get alot of compliments on how I appear. I am almost 40 and people fall in their tracks when I tell them my age. You'd think chatting with cosmetic reps they'd say. oh my, your skin is in such need of this n that. Not even knowing Im using a skin care line, they tell me how beautiful my skin is. And it is all due to this lift line by Chanel. I can see my youth teenage face in the mirror these days, after a month of use. My face is definitely firmer and I glow. I would pay more money for this than what it costs, its priceless!!!Dont hesitate, and don't fall for anything else, this is the best skin line ever :-) :-) :-) And the smell is soooooooo lovely :-)

I've used this cream for 7 years and while I don't have any wrinkles (hence rating a 4 out of 5), I feel that my face could be firmer. So I've stopped using it and am trying other things for more firming. For now I'm saying that I will not buy it again, but we'll see. I might wind up coming back to the cream, as it really has kept my face from wrinkling over the years, no doubt about it.
The cream is rich and will plump up the skin, it does make my face look dewey. But I'm in a place where I want more from a 250 dollar face cream, I want more than moisture, I want a face lift in a jar. And that may not be possible, but I'm looking...
Edited on 8/30/11: Well folks, I'm back on the sauce. I will buy it again after all. Not sure what happened, I was going along just fine for the last 8 or so weeks. Then, I just started to "dry out", and today I looked especially prune'y. It was bad. Very bad. My husband said, "honey, did somebody punch you?". No, what! So, tonight I did a yogurt mask and smeared the good stuff on all over. It feels good. I think this will de-prune my face. I call the sales associate "my dealer" beacuse I can't seem to quit the stuff. Anyway, she says Chanel is a curse. And that is correct, it is a curse. A wonderful, blessed curse. Viva Chanel Face Cream!!!!!!

I've been using the Ultra Firming Night Cream for just over 6 weeks now, and already by the third week I began seeing a difference. My skin looks and feels so much better, and - verging on miraculous! - the sagging contour of my face is definitely improved. I have had so many comments on my looks lately, ranging from asking if I've "done something" to my face to asking whether I am in love!! I am just finishing my first jar, and I have used it absolutely every night, often putting it on my neck, middle of my cleavage, even the back of my hands too - so it is actually very good value for money. I am very impressed with the results, so I am going to buy another jar this week - although I am continuing to use my lovely Lancome Renergie Morpholift during the day, as the two seem to work wonderfully together!

I was cusious to see what you guys think of the product because I choose to talk about it at my cosmetology thesis. It has a lot of unsafe chemicals inside. And as I knew it, I was willing to face the danger if the product is worthy. And in this case. It was not. Its avonbenzone, octinoxate and BHT is a little too much to handle. Apart from that, a french site called "Le Flacon" compares this product with a Nivea Sunscreen. It seems they are 69% alike.

Not a bad line from Chanel but only noticed how well it worked when I went off it. Am using Chanel's Blanc Essentiel range at the moment which targets brightening and not lifting and immediately noticed slight sagging on my face after 2 weeks. I used everything from the range from serum to eye cream, day/night moisturisers and masque. Will be trying other skin care which received good reviews (Orlane and Guerlain) and if I do not have any luck with any of them, Chanel's Lift will be revisiting my shelves again.

I have very sensitive skin that flushes easily. I bought this because I had read great reviews. The first day I used it my skin looked great, but the second day my skin began to itch severely and by the third day my lips swelled. Not sure whats in this stuff but be careful with this if you have sesitive skin.

This is the best line of products I have tried in a long time! I am 55, and have been really lucky with pretty good skin and also been lucky hearing that I have always looked much younger than my years, but within the last year I noticed things were not quite as firm, I really don't mind spending money, because these products are on the high side, if they work, and do they ever! Within 2 days I noticed a difference, I have all the lifting products, serum, daytime moisturizer and nightime moisturizer. I now have had the products for 2 months, and firmness has improved so much, and also more definition to contours in my face, cheekbones. All and all this is a fabulous line!

I am closing in on 58 years old (how did that happen?) and have taken good care of my skin since my early 20s using quality, department store brands. Earlier this year, in an attempt to cut some costs, I decide to try a drugstore brand which has been getting alot of press lately for its updated and progressive skin care kits. It worked well enough but nothing like how my skin was before besides the fact of natural aging.
Along came samples of Chanel Precision Ultra Correction serum, day cream and eye cream (not new to the line). I used them faithfully and began to see improvements within a week. I purchased full size of all three and use them faithfully. I am a pretty skeptical person when it comes to things like this despite the fact that I have used high end creams before.
This product line is fabulous-my skin is brighter, tighter and glowing. The tightness is not something that would take the place of surgery, of course, but it makes it all look natural and real as opposed to fake.
Even though I never used tons of makeup (mostly Chanel, Armani, Cle dePeau) I can now go with even less and let my skin speak for itself.
Wonderful stuff, really, and worth the price, yes it is. Am hoping to purchase the night cream-have not been able to score a sample of that but using the serum instead in the evening.
I think the thing to pay attention to here as with all skincare products, especially, is to use what is age appropriate. What is recommended for teen skin is what one should use and so on up the ladder of years. If you take care of your skin with appropriate products along the way there is no need to rush into skin care lines that one is not ready for.
I would not hesitate to purchase this again and again.

I am very fond of Chanel colors and foundations, but usually not so entranced by their skin care. Ultra Correction Lift is a new product release from Chanel designed to target loss of firmness in aging skin. I received generous samples of the products in this collection including a serum/concentrate (for both day and night), SPF 15 day cream and a night cream. I wasn't expecting to be impressed by these prods, but they are quite lovely and DO give a very nice lifting, smoothing and firming effect. UPDATE: After several days of using these prods AM & PM, I experienced the onset of an itchy rash and something like hives. It appears there's too much of the stimulating plant extract in this series for my rosacea and particular allergies. So even though I can't use this collection personally (except for perhaps occasionally), I still think it's an impressive product concept and a very effective product line, just not for ultra sensitive users like me. If not for my specific allergies, I would definitely have bought full sizes. So if you're not sensitive, but looking for a nice lift, I'd suggest giving this product group a try!
Chanel's own product description: At the heart of the collection: elemi PFA*, an exclusive, ultra-pure, ultra-powerful ingredient that stimulates the production of tensin, an age-defying protein abundant in young skin, giving it its inherent firmness, lift and shapely contour. The result: Skin achieves a visibly firm and revitalized look. Facial contours appear redefined and lifted from within.
