CHANEL - Hydramax Active Moisture Gel Cream

Hydramax Active Moisture Gel Cream is a light silky smooth sorbet gel cream which immediately melts into skin.  This a high performance cream ideal for summer.

Until recently, I was not aware that it contained hyaluronic acid to help combat fine dry lines.  I had certainly never noticed the improvement of any fine lines, although I am lucky not to have this as a major concern...yet!

I find this moisturiser leaves my skin soft and supple, but not tacky.  It is the perfect base for foundation, and doesn't facilitate any midday slide. 

Chanel says this moisturiser has the a subtle scent of white peaches, citrus fruits, jasmine, peony & cyclamen flowers, however I cannot detect any of these scents individually.  The fragrance is very subtle and not overwhelming at all.

Just a word of warning... If you happen to drop this jar on the floor while the lid is off, it's square shape will encourage it to bounce with some velocity and empty the entire contents onto your carpet!  I speak from experience.  Urgh!

You can purchase a 50ml size of this cream at department stores like Myer and David Jones.  Of course check out the usual discount haunts such as eBay and StrawberryNet.  I am on my third jar, and paid around AU$75.00.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

I had this cream in samples/testers and it was really nice. I find it a tad pricey, well, it's Chanel, but I was thinking of buying a jar of it. However, I started some specific skincare regime, so I didn't purchase any luxury creams like this one. Maybe for the summer I will splurge! Thank you for the review, I made a mental note to check this out again.
p.s. The Dior post is up!

Do you use this as your every day moisturiser? Or do you use anything in addition (like something with SPF)? I like the sound of a light weight Gel.
And Chanel packaging aww I am a sucker for it. But yeah me being Miss Bumblefoot I should probably stay away from glass haha
