Those familiar with the groundbreaking N°1 DE CHANEL beauty line will be pleased to note that the brand is adding two fresh and complementary products: the Red Camellia Revitalizing Essence Lotion, and the Red Camellia Revitalizing Body Serum-In-Mist. These new releases join the other anti-ageing skincare and makeup in the range that’s dedicated to Mademoiselle Chanel’s favourite flower, the camellia.
Before we talk about the new products though, here are some must-knows about N°1 DE CHANEL. The formulas feature the key active ingredient, red camellia flower extract, one that’s enriched with protocatechuic acid to prevent and correct the appearance of the five signs of ageing.
Picked for its revitalising power, the camellia science has been years in the making, particularly where the CHANEL research labs has partnered up with the University of Vienna for 10 years of experimentation in the field of senescence, or the process of biological ageing.
True to CHANEL though, they also pay attention to the sensorial experience of their skincare and makeup, everything from an ultra-soft foam to a comforting cream — and now, silky gels and fine mists too.
The Red Camellia Revitalizing Essence Lotion is a lightweight, water-like gel formula enriched with camellia water, and is absorbed instantly the moment it touches the skin. Compared to the existing Revitalizing Lotion in the range, this has a slightly more gel-like texture, though still meant to go on before applying your serum.
A Petal-Clear Complex, comprising of niacinamide and red camellia extract, not only leaves skin hydrated all day, but also works to diminish signs of ageing. Pores are more refined, skin imperfections such as wrinkles and unevenness are addressed, and one’s youthful glow is restored.

If you love body care, but hate the fuss, know that there’s now a CHANEL body mist for you. The Red Camellia Revitalizing Body Serum-In-Mist is refreshing and surprisingly lightweight, and allows the powerful active ingredients to go onto, and into, your skin via a cloud of fine mist.
While milky-textured, this is a bi-phase mist that combines fresh camellia water with red camellia oil; in fact, it contains the same concentration of red camellia extract as the Revitalizing Serum, so you know your skin will be nourished and well-protected. It may be applied to the entire body morning and night, at the end of your N°1 DE CHANEL ritual, or any time of the day.
The N°1 DE CHANEL Red Camellia Revitalizing Essence Lotion ($150) and Red Camellia Revitalizing Body Serum-In-Mist ($125). Available at CHANEL Fragrance and Beauty counters, and online at sg-eshop.chanel.com.
