Our Must-Haves from the New N°1 de CHANEL Collection

The new Chanel Beauty N°1 De Chanel collection is ideal for the ladies looking to kickstart an anti-ageing regime. Encapsulating the revitalising powers of the Red Camellia flower, the collection presses on prevention as compared to cure—addressing skin concerns such as wrinkles, pores, loss of elasticity and radiance before they become an issue. Offering more than just skincare, the N°1 De Chanel collection is three-fold—featuring make-up and a fragrance mist too.


Having the privilege of experiencing this elusive collection back whilst it was strictly under wraps—all the embargos and ‘confidential’ emails eluded to the fact that this was going to be a launch not to be missed. And here it makes its grand entrance.


As someone who fits right into the millennial category that’s looking to start their anti-ageing routine, I felt like the skincare gods were answering my prayers, and giving me a solution I couldn’t say no to. With the collection’s primary focus being to revitalise and protect skin from ageing concerns before they happen—my interest was peaked and after about a month experiencing the collection, here are my top three picks from the collection.

The star of the show and the heart of the collection, the Revitalizing Serum has a texture I haven’t quite experienced before. It’s slightly more thicker than most serums but seeps into the skin almost instantly as you spread it across your face. As soon as I’d applied the serum, the effect happens immediately—my complexion is more vibrant and bright, but I can’t say too much yet about wrinkles and pores as I still need a bit more time to experience the product.  Another plus point is the pump of the serum, as it dispenses just the right amount for a full face.


Claiming to be the key to preserving your skin’s vitality, the new Red Camellia Revitalizing Serum is formulated with 95% ingredients of natural origin and 76% of which are derived from the camellia flower itself. Ideal for millenials alike looking to kick start their anti-ageing routine, this serum works hard to reduce the look of wrinkles and pores whilst improving skin elasticity too.


Revitalizing Cream

This cream has a moisturising whipped texture that is rich with red camellia extract and oil. For the oilier ladies, like myself, you’d need to spend just a little longer to blend this into the skin as the cream is fairly thick. But fret not, because it does eventually seep into the skin to provide a hydrating and revitalising veil on your complexion. Consisting of 95% of ingredients of natural origin, this cream soothes and returns radiance to the skin, whilst helping to form a protective barrier against urban pollution too.


One of the spearheads of sustainability for this collection, the Revitalizing Cream is available as a refill and the cap of the moisturisers are made from the shell of the Camellia—minimising wastage of production and accentuating the holistic approach of the collection.


Revitalizing Lip and Cheek Balm

Skincare is the heart of the N°1 de CHANEL Collection, but I can’t get over these multidimensional lip and cheek balms. Use it on your eyes, lips or cheeks, the balm is creamy to the touch but blends into a pretty matte texture once on the skin. We’re loving this for quick, on-the-go make-up that adds a soft blush and a slight pop of colour to your complexion with just a single swipe.  Available in six flattering shades, the Revitalizing Lip and Cheek Balms are super playable and infused with red camellia oil and plant origin wax. Lips are nourished but bright with colour and cheeks are radiant and glowing.
