Skin Care

Chanel labs have extracted the most powerful of the ingredients for use in this new collection of skin care. The products are luxurious and consist of Sculpting Firming Concentrate Serum, Lifting Firming Day Cream SPF15, Lifting Firming Day Fluid SPF15, and Lifting Firming Night Cream.

There’s even a lifting formula that’ll keep your eye makeup looking its best throughout the day. These new formulations have active botanical ingredients, and contain no fragrances, parabens, or synthetic coloring.
