Could Chanel’s new ‘Hydra Beauty Micro Serum’ be the world’s best lightweight serum? With a research team that develops its own beauty breakthroughs with assistance from scientific experts, Chanel is poised to take the title of “World’s Best”. The serum is comprised of a specially developed microfluidic serum that is infused with droplets from the healing camellia blossom. Chanel dubs the result a “hydra-revolution” and promises a major dose of hydration, as well as the promotion of increased moisture retention in the skin’s cells. Not only is hydration a key factor, but the serum also smooths the skin, protects it from free radicals, and boosts its overall radiance.
Although there are hundreds of great serums on the market, most of them contain alcohol to help the absorption process. However, alcohol can ultimately damage the dermis, which is why Chanel’s ‘Hydra Beauty Micro Serum’ is formulated without alcohol or surfactant ingredients. Not only is it effective, but it’s also ideal for sensitive skin. Upon usage, we noticed our makeup “sat” on the face a lot more naturally, with the skin feeling plump and incredibly moisturized throughout the day.
While it is easy to believe a brand when it comes to the efficacy of its product, independent sources are invaluable when it comes to determining the accuracy of these claims. Fortunately for Chanel, the Journal of Natural Products (August 2012) confirmed that extracts of the Camellia japonica inhibit excess melanin production and possess antioxidant properties. Test results conclude that ‘Hydra Beauty Micro Serum’ plumps the skin, increases hydration, and improves its texture. It would indeed seem that, once again, Chanel is miles ahead of the competition.
