Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Liquid Essence

I am all about lightweight skincare in the Summer. Especially when it's as hot and humid as it here right now.

My skin still needs some moisture when it's hot out, but much less  and I don't want anything heavy or sticky. They feel too much and I worry about breakouts since my skin is tacky and oily these days.

An essence water is just right and Chanel's new Hydra Beauty Micro Essence hits the spot.

This is lightweight but not completely water like. It's a bit thicker, but only a bit. There are also micro droplets of cold extracted Camellia  that burst open on contact. I can't really feel them but you can see them in the bottle.

This gives  a quick feeling of  soothing , refreshing moisture. It doesn't sink in totally right away, you feel it on but it's  barely there .

In the AM , my skin feels a little softer and plumped after using. This is not going to do loads of anti-aging but add that little  boost .  In addition to the  Camellia flower  for hydration, there is ginger extract for antioxidants and glycerin . The Essence is lightly fragranced.  Much less than the very strong one , to my nose at least , of Blue Serum.

And that bottle ? It's  chic as anything. A welcome addition to the vanity.

Chanel Hydro Beauty Micro Essence is $ 100 at Chanel and wherever the brand is sold.
