My daughter placed a Chanel gift bag under the Christmas tree, and I was extremely excited to know what was in the bag, but she told me that I could not open it until Christmas Day! As soon as we woke up on Christmas morning, I happily grabbed my gift and unwrapped what has now become my favorite serum. Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Micro Serum is a water-light formula that provides 24-hour moisturizing benefits. This is a great product to consider if you’re looking for a hydrating serum that will take your skincare results to the next level.
My first impression of Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Micro Serum: I applied a small dime-sized amount to my skin, and it felt deeply replenished, plump, and I noticed a gorgeous glow. Additionally, the fragrance was very light and pleasant to smell. I’ve been using this serum consistently morning and night for 3 weeks and my skin feels very smooth and looks amazing thus-far

Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Micro Serum is worth trying if you have very dry skin (like me) and haven’t had much success with other hydrating serums. The only drawback is the price being over $100 for one bottle of serum. However, you only need a very small amount of product, therefore one bottle can last you anywhere from 3-6months. Chanel is a high-quality brand, and this product is formulated with patented technology made to enhance its stability and effectiveness and will therefore provide visible results. I will be incorporating this serum into my skincare routine and look forward to seeing the results of my skin a few months from now!
