Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Crème for Normal skin.
What does it do?
I'll start by saying that I have combination skin (oily around the t-zone but dry in patches) so perhaps this formula which is for 'normal skin' isn't exactly right for me. I've used the Hydra Beauty Gel Crème each morning and when first applied this moisturiser feels very cool and fresh which I love when applied at 6am in the morning! However, once massaged into the skin this product dries very quickly until the skin tightens slightly. When you see the word hydrate you expect the results to be dewy, radiant and soft but I found this product to be the exact opposite. I find that this moisturiser dries my skin out once applied which is a real shame. The formula feels moisturised and hydrated at first and then seems to go dry immediately after. However, the positives I can draw from this product is that it does create a good base for foundation as it dries quickly, meaning foundation doesn't slide when it's applied on top. I have also found that a little goes a long way so this product is sure to last a good few months. The packaging is also super luxury and comes in a chunky pot with a secure lid, making this product perfect if you do lots of travelling.
How much does it cost?
£50 for 50ml.
Is it worth the money?
Luckily for me, I was treated to this and it was bought as a duty free purchase. If I'd have splurged £50 on this I think I might have been a little disappointed but this doesn't mean this isn't a great product for other skin types. I just think I could find a slightly cheaper alternative including SPF protection that is more well-suited to my skin type.

7/10 for me sadly, sorry Chanel!
