When facial oils step out of the shadows of niche skincare brands, into the glare of mainstream department store brands, you know they are a legitimate skincare category to be reckoned with. Quite a few department store brands now boast a bottle or two of a facial oil.
Chanel now enters the fray with the Chanel Huile de Jasmine revitalizing facial oil with jasmine extract, raising the stakes somewhat. The Chanel Huile de Jasmine (Jasmine Oil) has just been made available at counters, but I’ve been experimenting with it for almost 2 months now.
I haven’t come across a lot of buzz about this, which I found surprising. Doesn’t the internet usually go a little crazy over everything new that looks imminently pretty and instagrammable? 😛 I think it’s because of the price point, and the rather exclusive availability – only at Chanel boutiques, not all counters.
Cynicism aside, I was very interested to have a go at it because you know how I feel about facial oils right? I love them! There’s always space in my stash for one more 😀
