Chanel Sublimage Cleanser

Chanel, Sublimage CleanserSeveral weeks ago, Chanel added a makeup remover/cleanser to their Sublimage line of products. It comes packaged with a cotton cloth, and I had heard several different and confusing explanations of how to use the product. Now that I’ve learned the “right” way, I thought I would share.

Sublimage cleanser comes out of the tube as a gel, which “melts” into an oil as you rub it on your skin. You massage it onto dry face (and lashes), then dampen the cotton cloth with warm water. Place it over your face and let it sit for a moment (the warmth is supposed to maximize the soothing effects of the camellia and jojoba oils).

With the cloth still over your face, rub with gentle circular motions to remove your makeup. Then remove the cloth, rinse it out, and rinse your face with water.

In a nutshell, this is an oil cleanser. Whether or not you want to follow the full Chanel ritual, you apply it to dry skin, and then wet it to activate and thoroughly remove. It is NOT a cold cream (apply to skin, wipe off with cloth without the use of water). I’m probably not going to be taking the plunge anytime soon, but it’s nice to know how it works.

Sublimage cleanser (plus cotton cloth) is $95 for a 5.0 oz tube.

    That’s really really expensive for something you ultimately wash off your face.

  • kimkats says:

    For $95, that sumbitch better wash my face by itself, AND apply toner AND moisturizer!! $95?! For what amounts to a wildly expensive cleansing balm or oil?!
