Back in August, I got some of Chanel’s latest skincare into my hot little paws to play around with. So on my holiday to Japan I took the Chanel Le Lift Crème Yeux (eye cream) and Le Lift Serum with me to test both out.
Just a bit of a background on the range, Chanel Le Lift is a line of products that is suitable for all skin types including three different texture and finishes in their creams for different skin type needs. The range is designed to combat the aging process by delivering anti-aging technologies for, increased elasticity, improves resilience, firmer skin and targeted lifting action.
With almost two months of daily application, here is my verdict of them both. When it comes to skincare, I usually would much prefer to test out the serums to see if the skincare range delivers what it promises as serums are usually the most potent and quickest in showing results. In this case, it was Chanel Le Lift Serum (Firming Anti-Wrinkle Serum) for me.
This gel like serum is lightweight to touch and absorbs into my skin quickly when incorporated with some light massage around face. The serum in itself has a fragranced scent that is expected from Chanel skincare. It claims to deliver 12 hours of continuous lifting and firming action. I love the pump bottle packaging and the all black everything just oozes class. I love it!
I find that with daily use and massage (very important!); whilst I don’t see a massive difference to lifting, I did find my skin more tighten when I use this serum then when I am not using this serum. It also helps to prevent pre-mature aging – sagging! I am also surprised at how lightweight this anti ageing serum is.
As for the Chanel Le Lift Crème Yeux (Firming Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream), this comes in a jar form and at first glance it appears quite rich. Designed to firm and lift up the eye area, this silky-smooth cream is creamy yet absorbs into skin fairly quickly. You only need the smallest dollop ever and incorporated with some light massage, this goes on buttery smooth.
I find this ticking all the boxes with hydration, preventing fine lines (I usually get creases under by eyes by mid afternoon but they are now no longer visible!) and good to prevent puffiness and dark circles from all the late nights drinking in Japan. It also sits wells under make up and help keep my eye area appear half human when I had to pull through all the days with 2-4 hours sleep.
Since I have started using this eye cream, I noticed just the other day I spent less time touching up and applying concealer under my eyes. The cream must be working for me to think that way.
Overall, I love both products and am glad I have discovered anti ageing staples I can rely on especially now that I have hit my big 3-0. Gotta buckle up and take anti-ageing seriously from here on in.
