LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE
SUBLIMAGE, THE ULTIMATE LUXURY
CHANEL, A CREATIVE HOUSE
WITH MULTIPLE TERRITORIES OF EXPRESSION
Imagining, exploring, composing, standing out… This perpetual quest and these essential values, so dear to CHANEL, have radiated from the heart of the House skincare since 1927. SUBLIMAGE, the exceptional skincare line, is the perfect example. This cosmetic treasure is the emblem of know-how in terms of creation and expertise, designed for all women, regardless of their age or skin tone. It is an essential benchmark for all those who wish to lovingly and serenely care for themselves and reveal skin that is more beautiful, strengthened from within, day after day.
SIGNATURE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS, DRAWN FROM NATURE
Drawing the best from nature, while respecting it, identifying noble plants with incredible potential, patiently observing them to uncover their precious secrets, inventing specific and tailored techniques to extract decisive molecules from them… Backed by these high standards, CHANEL Research developed its first natural active ingredient in 2006: Vanilla Planifolia PFA*. Self-evident, this green diamond derived from Vanilla Planifolia from Madagascar exalts its benefits in all SUBLIMAGE skincare, the cosmetic jewel of the House. Since then, continuously exploring the plant world, CHANEL has created many active ingredients from different parts of this vanilla.
A SPECIFIC FORMULATION, AT THE HEIGHT OF PLEASURE AND INNOVATION
Selecting premium raw materials, carefully blending them to obtain a perfect balance of efficacy, gentleness and sensoriality… SUBLIMAGE is the very expression of the CHANEL skincare philosophy. Each care product offers a unique experience on application.

LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE, THE REVELATION OF ORIGINAL RADIANCE
For Gabrielle Chanel, the face is a “mirror that reflects the events of your inner life.” Because it shows us in our true light, we must care for it every single day. This can even be a source of delight if our skincare has exquisite textures and our satisfied skin dazzles, lights up and glows with well-being. Giving women the best of nature, performance and sensoriality, SUBLIMAGE now completes its offer with LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE, which evens out the skin and enhances it with the vibrant radiance that exists in every woman. Two new skincare products join L’Essence Lumière in a highly desirable ritual that not only reveals a brilliant aura, but also a face free of imperfections (dark spots, wrinkles, etc.), backed by unmatched pleasure on application.
THE AESTHETIC OF LIGHT
The light that emanates from a face is the very essence of its attractiveness. However, this radiant beauty is diminished by the passing time and environmental aggressors: pollution, climatic variations and UV rays. These stressful conditions cause wrinkles and a loss of firmness, shadowy areas, as well as dark spots and an uneven skin tone, all of which hamper the perfect reflection of light. To remedy this problem, SUBLIMAGE LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE acts on these factors, minimizing shadows and transcending light refraction to reveal radiant skin.
“A woman is only as good as the light and peace she radiates”. Gabrielle Chanel To intensely illuminate the face of every woman, SUBLIMAGE LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE combines natural anthyllis extract with intense Vanilla Planifolia water for double radiance and anti-aging efficacy. Each of these precious ingredients is grown with eco-friendly processes that ensure perfect traceability.
Intense Vanilla Planifolia water, a green diamond from Madagascar, a prodigious antioxidant.
Intense water from Vanilla Planifolia pods is endowed with potent antioxidant properties. It is an exemplary ally to withstand damage from urban life.
Natural anthyllis extract, a botanical jewel from the Alps, a radiance generator.
Grown in the French Alps, anthyllis is a pioneer plant that adapts to the most extreme conditions as long as it is bathed in light. Natural anthyllis extract, the active ingredient obtained by CHANEL Research, acts on the expression of SESTRIN-2 in the keratinocytes to combat oxidative stress and on tyrosinase in the melanocytes to regulate melanin synthesis. With its power to both target irregularities by controlling pigmentation and to activate cellular defense mechanisms, it remarkably evens out the complexion.
SUBLIMAGE LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE is now composed of three complementary skincare products for a complete and comprehensive approach: La Lotion Lumière Exfoliante prepares radiance, L’Essence Lumière activates it and La Crème Lumière reinforces it with its brightening action. This complementary harmony unleashes the magic of restored radiance. Light shines and is immediately reflected. And the skin glows, healthy and alive.
THE LUMINOUS RITUAL OF RESTORED RADIANCE
PREPARE AND RENEW RADIANCE WITH SUBLIMAGE LA LOTION LUMIÈRE EXFOLIANTE
Extremely gentle on the skin, this delicate exfoliating lotion overflows with active white birch water, rich in sugars and minerals, to boost the skin’s hydration. Its benefits are combined with those of intense Vanilla Planifolia water for its antioxidant action and natural anthyllis extract for its ability to help even out the complexion. Deliciously comfortable and refreshing, this transparent jellified water is also enriched with AHAs* combined with L-arginine. It gently exfoliates to stimulate cell renewal and improve the even quality of the skin. As soon as it is moisturized, skin is soft to the touch, wonderfully smooth and ideally prepared to receive SUBLIMAGE skincare. Day after day, skin texture is refined. Dark spots are diminished and the complexion lights up, becoming more translucent.
The radiance-boosting method
Morning and evening, use fingertips or a cotton pad to apply several drops to entire face, after thoroughly removing makeup and cleansing with SUBLIMAGE LA COLLECTION DE DÉMAQUILLAGE (L’Huile-en-Gel de Démaquillage, L’Eau de Démaquillage, Le Savon de Soin, Les Grains de Vanille), from the middle of the face outwards. Avoid the eye area. To heighten the results, use a cotton pad to make light vertical rubbing movements on cheeks, forehead, nose and any skin irregularities. 125ml bottle
REGENERATE AND ILLUMINATE
WITH SUBLIMAGE LA CRÈME LUMIÈRE
This cream combines the ultimate regenerating power of Vanilla Planifolia PFA* and the ability to regulate pigmentation mechanisms with natural anthyllis extract. Vanilla Planifolia PFA stimulates life factors essential to beautiful skin, while intense Vanilla Planifolia water prevents oxidation and natural anthyllis extract ensures even-toning and illuminating action. As a complement, a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid guarantees perfect hydration, while nourishing active ingredients (shea butter, squalane) deliver absolute comfort and softness to the skin. The light, luscious and creamy texture is exquisite and addictive. The fusion is obvious, like a second skin.
SUBLIMAGE La Crème Lumière hydrates, divinely plumps and immediately adds luminosity. Skin is more comfortable (+36%**) and softer (+23%***) from the first application. Day after day, dark spots are visibly diminished. Smoothed, evened out and plumped, skin reflects the light better. After 4 weeks of use, the complexion’s radiance (+23%***) and the skin’s luminosity (+27%***) are visibly improved, as are the skin’s tone (+17%****) and firmness (+19%****). Fresh and dazzling, the complexion regains its original radiance.
The radiance-boosting method
To further enhance the effects of the cream, use the application technique inspired by the “CHANEL AU RITZ PARIS” rituals. Dab a small amount of product onto cheeks, forehead and neck. Using both hands, smooth over face, from the center outward. On the left side of the face, use both hands to alternately smooth from the center outward, two times each, on the following areas: from the middle line of the forehead to the temple; from nose to ear; from the corner of lips to the angle of the jaw; and from the tip of the chin to the ear, before working back down to the collarbone. Repeat these steps on the right side of the face.
