The following review is for CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY SERUM and and HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE NUTRITION NOURISHING CREAM FOR DRY SKIN. As previous reviewer I can not find HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE NUTRITION NOURISHING CREAM FOR DRY SKIN category.
Not sure how in warmer state, Chanel does not put a sample jar of this HYDRAMAX cream on their counter. Too popular in cold states, so run out sample? So, you need to ask SA , or just get a full jar as I did.
Thanks Chanel has this serum, it is not too thicker to cause more visitable temperature forehead wrinkle, and not make laughing wrinkle more visitable.
Since most moisture for dry skin normally thicker already, my face can not afford anymore additional ticker skin care if I don't want add more visitable fine small temporally wrinkle on my forehead and laughing wrinkle.
Here is my story, I start having dry dry dry skin since couple years ago, not just because I turn to 50, I also moved to extreme cold and long winter state at 6 years ago. This long and cold winter, heater dry up my skin even more, I must say worst than air conditioner. My skin face the biggest challenge that i never had when I were in Texas for 20+ years, not even when I were in dry state, Colorado for 6 years. Finally, I my long time (20 years) favor La Prairie no longer works on my sensitive face, maybe only its eye cream can still work on my dry skin, but plan to get a new one.
I only have few obvious wrinkle, most fine wrinkles are caused by dry skin. Thanks La Prairie SA helps me to realized what kind moisture that I need, not these lift-up or wrinkle fix skin care.
I did not have chances to try all high end brands, not only because there is no Nordstorm and other high end departments stores near where I live, also because I have sensitive skin. So, I start on the brands that I used to use since I were in college and before I knew La Prairie, they are all popular brands in any departments stores.
I am very happy this serum and Chanel HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE NUTRITION NOURISHING CREAM FOR DRY SKIN. These 2 products finally turn my skin back to when I was using La Prairie. Only after a week, they removed all my forehead fine wrinkles which caused by dry. Still have few deep wrinkles, but I am happy, because I try several wrinkle fix creams, even add extra oil on my face, most of them all too dry to me, and even make more fine wrinklessssss.
Now, I need SPF 15 (not high SPF 50 as Chanel has) during our short summer and warmer weather. I have not try these 2 combination with foundation, don't know if will be too heavy for me, and if cause my temporally forehead and laugh wrinkles more visitable, or if even stay on my makeup.
The only down side of these 2 products are fragrance is too heavy for me, but they are lovely smell as Chanel's famous perfume, so I will make myself get used to, since they makes my skin so beautiful.
