Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream

Six years ago I bought my first Hydra Beauty skincare product from CHANEL and till this day I’m still using this range on a daily base. Last year you could have read all about my Hydra Beauty experience in the CHANEL lab in Paris, my skincare routine with Hydra Beauty products and different kind of reviews of products. Today I’m reviewing a completly new product in this range called: Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream.


HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Water Cream is a radiance-revealing fluid moisturizer enriched with camellia floral water. Extremely fresh and comfortable, it illuminates the complexion in an instant.


To master every step of the skincare creation process, it’s important to create natural active ingredients. The Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream offers hydrating and protective benefits ensured by the signature active ingredients of the Hydra Beauty skincare line. Last year I got to see and experience how the process of creating these ingredients at the CHANEL laboratory took place. If you want to read more about that, click here to read the article I wrote about it. So for me it’s very interesting to see that the same active ingredients are used in this new product as well:

  • Camellia Alba PFA (a white camellia extract):  helps skin restore and maintain optimal water levels inside its cells, while preventing this water from escaping
  • Blue Ginger PFA (an antioxidant extracted from ginger): helps protect skin from free radicals and reinforce skin’s natural defense system on a daily basis

CHANEL promises you a skin which is fully hydrated, smoothed and plumped. But which also blurres imperfections and even makes your pore less visible. After reading this I was very excited to try it out. It comes in a pump packaging (which I love) and it’s also practical for travel. The product itself is light, you can spread it easily on your face and it also absorbs very fast. You absolutely don’t need a lot of it, which makes it last quite a while. From the moment you apply it, you will notice straight away what CHANEL means. It hydrates my skin, it makes it feel plumpy and the most important thing: it gives my skin such a  natural glow! A different kind of glow compared to the Micro Crème.

I’ve always had quite large pores, and for this part it hasn’t had any effect yet. But what I did notice is that you can truly use this product as a primer/good base for your makeup application, because my foundation looks much better when I’m using this product, than when I’m not! After trying it out for a few days, I straight away loved it and decided to add it in my daily skincare routine. Now it has been a bit more than 2 months and I’m still very glad that I did that!

The new CHANEL Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream is now available in stores!
