CHANEL Sublimage Cleansing Collection Review

CHANEL just launched a new line of cleansers under the Sublimage range. Their most premium (anti-aging) line especially formulated for mature/dry skin. Sublimage has been missing a ‘Cleansing Ritual’ in their lineup, therefore super excited to see these new additions!

The packaging for the collection is next level! All the jars are glass, including the Cleansing Water that instantly registers as ultra luxe in it’s hefty glass bottle. I find glass packaging very travel unfriendly, though I doubt the collection was created for on-the-go use if you get what I mean!

Chanel describes the collection more than just a cleansing ritual; rather an opportunity to enjoy a peaceful moment in the morning and evening to calm and relax the mind.

This ultra sensorial cleansing experience is enriched with natural-origin Vanilla Planifolia Water and Harungana extract for their antioxident and detoxifying properties. Promising real results for skin that appears more luminous day by day.

The collection consists of,

Sublimage Vanilla Grain Scrub  (50g)

Sublimage Gel-to-Oil Cleanser (150ml)

Sublimage Cleansing Water (125ml)

Sublimage Soap (115g)

Among these new additions the Vanilla Grain Scrub is one of my favourites! It’s made up of vanilla pod seeds to gently exfoliate and tiny jojoba microbeads that lift away any residual impurities.

The grains are suspended in a very thin gel and feel ultra fine, I use two scoops with the spatula that’s provided.

The round beads ensure skin isn’t damaged and exfoliated gentlest as possible without dragging or scratching. Once rinsed off, skin is left feeling silky without any tightness or dryness.

P.S- The scent of the Scrub is a very subtle vanilla (a true vanilla and not the artificial kind) which makes the experience that much more enjoyable as you polish off dull skin for that luminous glow!

P.P.S- The other cleansers of the range have more of the original Sublimage (perfume like) scent. Though not overpowering.

The Sublimage Gel-to-Oil Cleanser is a clear thick gel; to be used by applying directly onto the skin  and massaged in till it transforms into an oil.

Once rinsed, this leaves the skin ultra soothed and comfortable to the touch, without any tightness. It doesn’t leave any residue and rinses off completely taking with it all impurities and makeup.

Usually a single step cleanse isn’t enough when I wear makeup, however with this I feel it does an exceptionally good job and don’t feel the need to double cleanse. Hands down the best luxury cleanser i’ve tried.

Luckily the tube contains quite a generous 150ml, which makes parting with $100+ for a cleanser a little easier. A really good buy nonetheless and one of my favourites from this collection which i’d recommend trying.

Sublimage Cleansing Water.

A luxurious (oil-free) water cleanser that’s perfect for your morning skincare routine. Ideal for sweeping off impurities and residue skincare from the night before. The thicker lotion is suspiciously reminiscent of an essence. Leaving the skin deeply hydrated and already prepped for your next step.

Since a water cleanser is not meant to be rinsed off, the antioxidant benefits of the ingredients can be fully appreciated. This would be a great start to a morning routine delivering a healthy dose of antioxidant protection to keep the skin shielded through the day.

The fourth and final installment to the Cleansing Ritual is the Sublimage Soap.

A generous bar that lathers into thick lush foam with it’s natural-origin emulsifier and combination of shea butter and humectants. It allows for a very gentle cleanse without stripping the skin of it’s natural oils.

I myself tend to avoid soaps and feel it’s something of a personal choice being partial to liquid or bar cleansers, however as far as soaps go, I do believe this one’s rather nice. However in all honesty I don’t think i’ll ever bring myself to really purchase one at $100+.

In my opinion this would make an incredibly luxurious Christmas gift for any skincare lover, since the season is just around the corner! Maybe a combo of the luxurious Vanilla Scrub to make an even more precious!

Bottom line

If you are looking to splurge on just one product from the collection, i’d urge you to try the Gel-to-Oil Cleanser or the Cleansing Water. Both exceeded expectations in terms of sensorial experience and overall effectiveness. I love that these leaves the skin so soft & soothed. If you have dry skin, this line is a must-try if your budget allows.
