This moisturizing cream for normal to dry skin deeply hydrates and protects skin.


With its unique ability to bloom in the winter, the Camellia blossom holds the secret to optimal hydration. Chanel Research harnessed this power in exclusive Camellia Alba PFA*, a remarkably pure ingredient that encourages skin’s natural ability to restore and retain moisture for a smooth, radiant appearance.

To protect the benefits of Camellia Alba PFA, Chanel scientists turned to one of nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants, Blue Ginger PFA, an exceptional ingredient that acts as an environmental shield by blocking and neutralizing free radicals.

With added Shea Butter, HYDRA BEAUTY CRÈME leaves skin soft and smooth.

*PFA: Polyfractioned Active. An ultra-pure, ultra-powerful ingredient created through exclusive patented Chanel technology.


Use in the morning and evening as an essential step of your HYDRA BEAUTY ritual.

I tried a “cult French pharmacy” cream and now back to my CHANEL hydra beauty cream . It’s the only product that doesn’t make me break out. It feels amazing and is a great base under my foundation and after my Le Lift serum. It offers a healthy glow without a greasy feeling. The smell is really beautiful too !

I just ordered HYDRA BEAUTY CREME for the first time and I'm quite excited to receive it to see a difference in a good hydration creme vs.over the counter regular lotion.I am 41 years old and I just saw my first signs of wrinkles therefore i think a good creme would help diminish them.

I love how it hydrates my skin. I could see a difference in my skin after just one week of use! I also just love the smell!
andree f on Oct 31, 2017
I love how smooth and hydrated my face and neck feel after an application. I also noticed that I don't need to reapply any further applications after my morning shower, as the benefits last all day. It's hard to find products that actually do what is described, and when I do find them, I like to have enough on hand in my own personal stock!
Karen D on Oct 29, 2017
great hydrant over toner!

What is the difference between this and the Hydra Beauty Gel Crème?
Guest A on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in the lovely Hydra Beauty Creme collection. Please know both cremes will help benefit and moisturize the skin. The main difference will be in the texture of the cream. The Hydra Beauty Gel Cream is a light gel texture leaves skin soft, smooth, radiant and infused with moisture. Ideal for normal skin. While the Hydra Beauty Creme is a creme texture also leaves the skin feeling fresh, moisture, and radiant. Recommend for normal to dry skin as it helps deeply hydrates and protects skin.
Should I use this before or after serum? Should this be the last step of my skin care?
Cheryl C on Dec 26, 2018

What is the difference between the Hydra Beauty Creme and the Hydra Beauty Micro Creme? Is one better for dry skin?
Kim S on Mar 20, 2018

It is one if my favorite cream from Chanel. It is soft, moistures and hydrates the skin, but it doesn’t leave it oily. The scent is signature of Chanel and i love it. I use it 4 times per week and for my face is enough. As a question - can be recycled the used containers? I have them and i wish to give it back to Chanel, if you have this kind of program. Thank you.

A beautifully luxurious cream that feels like a whipped mousse. It’s perfectly moisturizing and leaves my skin with a plump and hydrated glow. I’m extremely picky. I don’t want anything too heavy, and this was perfect. Deeply hydrating without feeling heavy. Will purchase again.
