This serum is a joy to use, from the scent to the effects I see on my skin: lines are smoothed out, and skin looks soft and plump.

Helping your skin to fight pollution and its damaging effects should be as important as helping it fight the effects of ageing. We’re not always aware of it, but our skin is exposed to all kinds of pollution, from the daily dust in our home, to vehicle exhaust fumes, haze particles and more. 

What It Is:

An anti-ageing and intensely hydrating pre-serum that combines powerful botanicals and hyaluronic acid to deliver long-lasting hydration and blue light protection to the skin daily. 

Its Claims:

An all-rounder that not only hydrates and protects the skin but also targets signs of ageing, from dullness to lack of firmness and age spots. 

Key Ingredients:

A fermented extract derived from a radiation-resistant microorganism helps skin adapt to visible light, while nasturtium flower extract protects skin from blue light exposure. Together, this duo of ingredients reduces the appearance of pigmentation and wrinkles. 

The formula also contains tamarind and algae extracts, and a blend of hyaluronic acids of different molecular weights for complete hydration at every layer of the skin.

Texture:

A fluid gel that sinks into skin quickly. 

What Happened When We Used It:

A little goes a long way. Its lightweight texture spreads easily over the face and absorbs quickly into skin. It feels incredibly comfortable, not heavy or greasy, while complexion looks soft and supple, and glows.

We found that on days when our skin was more dehydrated, an extra pump had an instant soothing and hydrating effect. The bonus: The serum works as a moisture primer, allowing skin to absorb other skincare better.

Even though it’s a pre-serum, it works perfectly as a main serum with its anti-ageing and blue light protection benefits. It even doubles as a base for makeup, especially foundation and concealer, helping both to go on smoothly.  

And its luxurious spa-like scent, a signature of all Chantecaille skincare, makes using this hydrating serum really enjoyable. 

Chantecaille Blue Light Hyaluronic Serum ($250) is available at Chantecaille counters.
