A complete regimen that includes a cleanser, serum, face cream, and eye cream is based on studies conducted in Chanel's own research laboratory in the South of France.
It's a multi-step process that starts with Noémine, a non-foaming cleansing milk made from the hydrolate of camellia fistulosa Goto, which is said to decongest and purify pores. The serum then follows up with brightening ingredients like vitamin C and raspberry seed oil. For the face and eye cream, both of which come in a high-tech jar packaging, Chanel turned to camellia oil ,argan oil and marula oil . Meanwhile, Chanel introduced No.1 Pivoine Sublimateur de Teint Foundation SPF 15 ($60), its first foundation to contain white camellias from the Pivoine Blanc plantation in Japan.
The No.1 face cream is formulated with shea butter, rose water, and glycerin to moisturize the skin while protecting it against environmental aggressors like pollution and UV rays. And finally, there's an eye cream that goes on after cleansing day or night to hydrate the delicate under-eye area without leaving behind any greasy residue.
The brand suggests using the products together to create a holistic routine that will improve skin over time, but you can also opt for individual products depending on your skincare concerns. On top of all that, the line's packaging is beautiful—including its gold-plated No.1 accessories—as well as eco-friendly, as it's made from 100 percent recyclable materials.
What more could a girl ask for?Until now, the only No.1 we were privy to was Chanel's best-selling fragrance of the same name that launched back in 1971, but the new skincare line is a worthy addition to any beauty regimen, no matter your skin type.
