R E V I E W : Chanel Hydramax+Active Nutrition Lip Care

You must think, I've gone crazy or something to present another lip care product, since I just got my hands on Dior Crème De Rose SPF 10 (read the review here!) not too long ago.

Yes I admit I'm totally irrational sometimes, well, maybe too often, haha... Chanel just introduced two new skincare products for spring. Hydramax+Active Nourishing Cream for dry skin and Hydramax+Active Nutrition Lip Care. Since I'm not a fan of Chanel skincare, my attention was just directed to the latter.

In order to relieve myself (a bit) from bad conscience, I gave the Dior Crème De Rose to my sister today, who was in awe ever since she saw it. Haha... :p

But now, without any further ado, onto the review of Chanel Hydramax+Active Nutrition Lip Care!

Hydramax+Active Nutrition Lip Care comes in a small square pot (10 g/ 0.35 oz.) with Chanel's signature glossy black lid - very Chanel-ish, not? It is not as handy to take along with in a small makeup pouch as compared to Dior Crème de Rose, yet I think this pot looks really cute.


Like all Hydramax products, this lip balm has a somewhat fruity apple-like scent to it which is very light though, I'd say it's nearly not noticeable after a while!

Texture and benefits
It has an amazingly silky texture, that coats your lips with a very comfortable rich veil with a watery feel to it. Absolutely not sticky nor waxy! The lip balm instantly melts into the lips, making them feeling supple and super hydrated at once. I also love the glossy finish it leaves on my lips.

My lips has been pretty parched the last two days for some reason, and this has definitely quickly relieved the dryness a lot!

As much as I liked the Dior Crème De Rose, I must say I prefer Chanel Hydramax+Active Nutrition Lips ways better. The silky and highly hydrating texture, and the watery feel are just incomparable! I suspect this lip balm will receive holy grail status by me!

Price: 3/5
Packaging: 4/5
Texture and scent: 5/5
Results: 5/5


Soften, smooth and comfort dry, delicate lips with this highly effective lip care treatment, specifically created for intensely parched lips. Formulated with Ceratonia PFA*, a customized ingredient, along with Shea Butter and Cottonseed Oil extract, to deeply hydrate, nourish and help repair. Soft, supple and deeply moisturized, lips look sensuously plumped and perfectly smooth, with a beautiful satiny finish.
*PFA: Polyfractioned Active. An ultra-pure, ultra-powerful ingredient created through an exclusive purification technique developed by CHANEL.

Those of you who are looking for a very hydrating lip balm, this is it! Has anyone tried it out too? Would love to hear what you think about it too! ;)

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!

Hi this product really sounds great! I really am thinking of seriously purchasing this. I wanted to know if possible where you purchased this. I've been looking for it on all the websites that sell Chanel and can't find this exact one. Can you please also list the price. Thanks!

shy said...

Hihi, yeah!
THANX for the DIOR lip crème! ;D

Jamilla Camel said...

OK, I will inspect at the Chanel Counter!

Anna said...

Jess, really, you must stop posting about these great discoveries of yours, my bathroom is getting smaller and smaller while the amount of stuff cluttering it is getting bigger and bigger...do I really need another lip product??? Thank goodness I didn't buy the Dior!! Chanel it will have to be, then! Love the new layout, by the way and lovely Maquillage/Jill Stuart haul = more envy on my part!! A big hug, xx

LS said...

Yay Chanel~! super nice. I know it's pricy but it's really worth it.

Catherine said...

Oooh. This sounds amazing!! And it doesn't have SPF in it so I might actually be able to try it out! My lips have been so dry and weird lately - I've been applying lip balm and drinking extra water so I don't know what the problem is! T_T; I'll have to go check this out soon!

izumi said...

wow 5/5 really? sounds awesome!

Sher said...

I tried the dior one but I couldnt justify that much for something that felt similar to my bourjous one so I think im going to go get this one instead now :) thanks for the review!

amynaree said...

Thanks for the review, I am such a lip product whore as well as I have so many lip balms and lip healing products in general! This stuff sounds great, def want to get my hands on it!

LilliChantilly said...

Yesterday I got a sample from Chanel for this lip balme...today I had to buy it. It cost me $45 + tax at Nordstroms and it's so worth it. For the past few years, my lips have been chapped and I've tried everything under the sun (my last attempts have been using the Sugar lip treatments). My lips were always chapped/peeling, etc. Last night I put this chanel lip balme on and this morning I saw an definite improvement - for once. If you can, go to the Chanel counter at Macys or Nordstroms and ask for a sample to try. They should give you a small container/jar sample and then you can see how it works for you before shelling out the $45+ tax.
