While I do get sent a lot of skincare products to try out for potential review on my blog, I have to be honest and say that I keep very few of them. I'm just so happy with my current skincare routine that next-to-nothing can tempt me away from it. I was however, very intrigued when these landed on my doorstep this morning.
The new skincare concept from Chanel simply entitled Le Jour De Chanel, La Nuit De Chanel and Le Weekend De Chanel...Now, day cream and night cream are nothing new, but I was interested to see that they have added a weekend cream into the mix. A more nourishing, replenishing version of the others, it is to be applied morning and night at weekends, to replace the other two.
Just a gimmick to shift more product? Perhaps, but we shall see, as I'm going to be road-testing all three.
The thinking behind the three products is to keep the skin in a 'natural' rhythm, based around the modern, hectic lifestyle. The day cream is focused on reactivation of the skin, with jasmine for energy and salicylic acid for radiance, while the night cream is focused on recharging the skin with frankincense to soothe and hyaluronic acid to plump. Finally the weekend cream is focused on renewing with rose water to soften and a glycolic acid complex to promote hydration.
A further eyeball at the ingredients list tells me that they are all mineral oil and paraben free, but I don't claim to be a skincare expert so I'm not going to go into anything further than that.
My skin may hate me... we shall see. I couldn't resist. I will keep you updated on these.
They will be available to buy from Chanel counters this Friday, priced at £60, £60 and £72 respectively, or all three for £172 (saving £20... cunning!)
