I’m a total geek when it comes to luxe skincare, and one brand I’ve never used or tested is Chanel. Chanel is renowned for it’s couture fashion, cult makeup… but not so raved about for their skincare.
Recently I picked up the Chanel Gel Purete Cleanser. I’d heard quite a bit about this so as I passed the Chanel counter on my latest shopping spree, I decided to take the plunge and pick one up. As you can see from the bottle the packaging follows the simplistic black and white brand design, with plastic casing and pump action applicator. I much prefer a pump rather than ‘stick your finger in tub‘ as the whole process is a lot more hygienic and ultimately, a lot easier to get the right amount of product.
The gel is transparent and doesn’t have a strong odour to it. It smells like soap if I’m honest! I tend to wet my finger tips to help emulsify the gel and massage gently around my face. I also use a muslin cloth and warm water to remove this as I think it gives you a nice mild exfoliation in the process. Double the benefit!
The formula is designed to give you a thorough cleanse and purify your skin, removing any pollution build up throughout the day. Although it’s called a foam cleanser (which I don’t tend to buy), the emulsification is a more velvety feel than your typical foam. I like it! Your skin feels nourished, firm and extremely clean, ready to move onto the next step of your routine. The cleanser’s designed for oily-combination skin, eliminating excess sebum and help control natural oil levels on your face – and can be used morning or evening.
This is the perfect product for someone wanting to up their skincare game into the more high end market!
