Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Crème Review
Hello my dear readers! I am sure you are doing great already but I have come today with the review of a product that’s going to make things even better for you. While I think if you are a Singaporean woman, you already know me. However, if you don’t, then let me tell you that I am Yoshiko Carter, a Singaporean woman who has fallen in love with reviewing Singapore cosmetics and skincare products. Reviewing new products and finding the best ones for women is my hobby, profession, and ambition. When I suggest you something, it is understood that I have already tried and tested it.
I have spent countless hours trying new products. You can say that I can now tell you if a product will work or not by only looking at it. In most cases, I already know the product and even the most difficult ingredients mentioned on its label. Simple things impress me the most though, and that’s why I have brought to you Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Crème for you today. I will tell you how it benefited me, what the purpose of this gel moisturizing cream is, where you can find it, and how to apply it to get the best and quickest results.
How I Got My Hands on the Beauty Gel Crème by Chanel
If you know the brand, you should already know that Chanel makes a lot of different types of stuff. From accessories such as hand bags to perfumes, you can find just about anything from this brand. It will not be wrong to say that finding a skincare product from this brand can be challenging at times. However, I was at one of the best malls in Singapore this day i.e. The Shoppe at Marina Bay Sands. Yes, if you are looking for beauty, skincare, and cosmetic products, I can guarantee you that you will find just about anything here. It is one of my favorite places to visit when I am looking for something new for my skin or face.
So I was wandering around in this huge mall looking at different shops. One of them had quite a big collection of Chanel products, which also included this beauty gel crème. It instantly got my attention because hydrating and moisturizing cream is exactly what I was looking for that day. It comes in a small jar, which is quite short in height but pretty wide to occupy some space on your dressing table. It has 50g of gel cream inside it, which is enough to last you for a month if you use it regularly. Let’s get to the details of the product.
Major Reason for Buying Hydra Beauty Gel Crème
You should always have a major reason to buy a particular product. You can’t just pick a product that promises to give you a beautiful skin just like that. Just like any other organ of the body, your skin has specific issues and problems. You first have to identify the problem with your skin and then buy a product that addresses that particular issue. In this particular scenario, I am talking about a hydrating cream, which means you should use it if you have a dry skin that does not retain moisture that well.
If you look at the description of the cream on various online stores, you will see that it is meant for “normal skin” types. So what do they mean when they say normal skin? In this particular, you can say that your skin should be in the middle of the spectrum. It should not be too oily or too dry. If you have any special conditions particular to your skin, I would recommend not using a cream but visiting a dermatologist first. You do not want to turn a small problem into a big one by taking a wrong step at a wrong time.
Delving Deep into the Ingredients
You have to know that this cream is meant for hydrating your skin. It does not need a plethora of ingredients to give you the desired benefits. Even one or two effective ingredients are enough when it comes to hydration. However, the two main ingredients that Chanel has used in the making of this product are some of the best for their hydrating effects. Let’s take a look at them.
That’s the main ingredient you will find in the product. Just a little research about this ingredient will reveal to you how benefiting it is for the skin. It contains a lot of fatty acids that are considered the holy grail for any skin. The best thing is that you are getting double the benefits when you use this cream. Now only is it a hydrating cream, but it will also reward your skin with many anti-oxidant properties. It contains an abundance of polyphenols that help your skin fight the free radicals that cause it to look old and saggy before that time even comes.
The best thing about Camellia is that it does not cause any oily effect on the skin while bestowing some great qualities to it. In addition to that, Camellia also provides your skin with palmitic acid. Palmitic acid is known among skin specialist for its emollient qualities. When your skin absorbs this acid, it becomes a magnet for moisture in the air. Yes, palmitic acid helps your skin absorb maximum amounts of moisture from the environment. Not only that, it also has the anti-oxidant properties that can help your skin with a variety of anti-ageing benefits. So, a lot of what you are finding in anti-ageing creams is already there in this gel cream.
· Blue Ginger
Chanel has worked specially to extract this juice from ginger. The addition of this amazing extract into the product makes it many times more powerful than most other creams out there. I have already told you that Camellia instills a variety of anti-ageing qualities into the product. The addition of blue ginger extract is like a reinforcement of that. This extract is known for its powerful anti-oxidant properties that can kill and fight off the free radicals that are considered the enemy of your skin health. If you leave these free radicals roam around freely, they can wreak havoc on your skin.
In addition to the anti-oxidant properties, you will also love this ingredient for its glow. If you don’t know, the particles of this extract look like very tiny pearls. When you apply the gel on your face, these particles spread evenly on the skin and form a small layer that acts like a mirror for light. When light falls on these particles, it is reflected, giving your face the shine that you have always desired.
How You Will Apply the Hydrating Gel Crème
Before I tell you how you will apply this cream, I have to emphasize the feel of this amazing paste. When you apply other creams, you feel their weight on the skin. In addition to that, you can feel that they leave some residue behind that you can feel on the face for the whole day. One of the biggest issues with hydrating creams and gels is that they cause your skin to be greasy. You will not face any of these issues when you apply this cream from Chanel. The brand has done a great job of making its product weightless. You can’t even feel the weight of the cream on your face when you apply it.
Now, let’s get to the steps of applying this cream. While you already know how to apply a cream, I will still stress the right way to apply it.
- Take a small quantity of the cream and rub it between the fingers and palms of your both hands.
- Start applying the cream to your face gently. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing it on your face.
- Massage the cream on your face with a circular motion while keeping your fingers and palms as gentle as possible.
- Stop the application process when you feel that the cream is vanishing and the hands are becoming dry again.
- I apply a very tiny quantity of the cream at this point to make sure I get the maximum benefits.
You can apply the cream at any time of the day or night you want. I would say it will benefit you even more if you apply it at night.
How Fast the Cream Worked
The glow and shine on the face was instant, and that’s probably because of the blue ginger extract in it that reflects light. However, you can feel its many benefits in addition to hydration after one week of application. After applying the cream for one week, I could feel that my skin felt smoother, gentler, and healthier.
Final Verdict about the Product
I am in love with this product not only because of its benefits but also for the way it feels on your hands and skin. It is so weightless that it feels like air in your hands. It is smooth and calms your skin instantly when you apply the cream. The radiance and glow that it will give your skin are the added benefits for sure. Is it worth the price? I would say most definitely.
