Discover Chanel Hydra Beauty ritual with three levels of hydration – with the Micro Serum (the plump level), Camellia Water Cream (the glow level) and the Essence Mist (the boost level). I like to think of Hydra Beauty as my personal little spa because I’m in love with the scent of these products but also I love the way Hydra Beauty creams plump up my skin and make it look younger and less tired. So, when I first heard about the new Camellia Water cream, I had to try it.
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.
At the heart of the formula, Camellia Alba PFA, a white camellia extract, is combined with a hyaluronic acid derivative to restore hydric balance. In addition, Blue Ginger PFA, a powerful antioxidant extracted from ginger, helps protect skin from free radicals and reinforce skin’s natural defense system on a daily basis. Perfectly protected and steeped in an aqueous sensation thanks to the freshness of camellia floral water, skin is fully hydrated, smoothed and plumped.
If you wonder what the PFA stands for, it’s ‘polyfractioning’ of active ingredients – a process used by Chanel for ultra-purity. Chanel, by the way, has its own beauty labs with over 250 scientists across three countries (Japan, France and USA). They use a lot of camellia so cultivate their own so they don’t run out and harvest between January and March (it’s a winter flowering plant).

The Camellia Water Cream is easily dosed by the pump, subtly perfumed, very light in structure and very soothing. If you put on the soft and slightly liquid cream, it immediately pulls into the skin, your skin becomes clearer and stays the rest of the day (and evening!) well hydrated.
To prevent dry skin, I usually need a rich day care; in winter that is not a problem, but at warmer temperatures it is not always pleasant. The Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream is a result in this respect: the cream does what it promises and is suitable for cold days and ideal for warmer ones.
An excellent and wonderful care and a particularly accessible acquaintance with the extended Hydra Beauty line of Chanel. The camelia extract is found in the Hydra Beauty Micro Serum and the Hydra Beauty Micro Liquid Essence.
The Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream is really good.
