The concept of self-care has been around for some time, but it has really become a necessity to ease anxiety and indulge in mindfulness during these trying times. Willabelle Ong shares why she thinks self-care is important and why she choose to indulge with the SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale.
For me, self-care is all about being kind to myself and taking a step back to make sure I’m doing something that makes me happy every day. Besides the feel-good boost, I find that it also helps increase productivity while keeping stress away. No matter how hectic my schedule gets, I always make sure to dedicate time for my favourite things. It could be as simple as reading, painting, or taking a long bath.
The SUBLIMAGE Ritual
The SUBLIMAGE Ritual is more than just applying skincare, it’s a sensorial experience that calms the mind by drawing your attention to its luxurious textures and distinctive fragrance.
The Chanel SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale is a real skin treat. I love how it plumps and gives radiance to skin, as well as smoothens and tones for a more redefined contour. Its scent also helps me relax before bedtime. I start off with massaging my hairline, temples and ears before applying the Chanel SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale on my cheeks, forehand and neck with gentle sweeping motions. Finally, I massage my forehead again, followed by the temples and the back of my ears and head. It’s the ultimate skincare luxury.
The most potent product within the Chanel SUBLIMAGE range is the L’Essence Fondamentale. At its heart, the Plantifolia PFA developed from the Vanilla Plantifolia cultivated in Madagascar which is present in all products within the SUBLIMAGE range. This natural botanical extract is endowed with strong antioxidants to combat damage from environmental aggression, a bane that comes with leading a stressful urban lifestyle.
The star of the formula lies in the extract from the solidago flower, which molecules are only as rich as it is wild – calling for painstaking control in its soil and climatic conditions to produce the best possible yield. The result of these potent molecules stimulates the SeNescence Evasion Factor (SNEV) protein, which in turn, boost cell vitality and prolongs its longevity.
What this means is, the potent formula from the L’Essence Fondamentale can improve skin density, elasticity and firmness thanks to the solidago flower, which puts a pause on aged cells.
The Chanel SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale is priced at $750 and is available at all Chanel Fragrance and Beauty Boutiques and counters.
