When it comes to keeping skin younger looking, I opt for a heavy duty moisturizer and ingredients that are gentle on my skin. I have been a long time user of both Chanel and La Mer face products for this purpose as I can always count on them to be gentle enough while addressing my changing skin needs. The recent cream I've been obsessing over is Chanel's Ultra Correction Lift Lifting Firming Day Cream SPF 15, which I discovered during a recent makeover at a Chanel counter.
Upon application, the delicately floral scented luxe cream immediately smoothed my skin and injected it with a decadant dose of moisture and pillowy softness. Despite it's richness and body, the cream was quickly absorbed and left my skin with a slight de-lustred dewiness and ready for makeup. The fragrance quickly fades as the product is massaged into skin and didn't cause any irritation to my sensitive combination skin.
I've been using the cream for the last 2 weeks and found my skin feels a little more bouncier, smoother and 'less fatigued.' So far the effects haven't been dramatic, and I don't expect them to be, but I do feel this cream does firm my skin, and the difference before and after is more noticeable based on how smoothly my makeup applies over this moisturizer.
Although this cream is expensive, the jar will last ages as a tiny bit goes a long way. I anticipate this jar lasting me until autumn as I tend to use less moisturizer in the warmer months.
Lift day cream is ideal for anyone who's looking for a rich moisturizer that will help resotre skin's firmness and smoothness.
