“I don’t care what you think about me, I don’t think about you at all” – Coco Chanel.

Hands up if you love Chanel? Coco Chanel was known for her wonderful energy, she was ambitious and determined. Her philosophy was an understated elegance that encouraged a woman’s confidence through comfortable, yet stylish clothes. I’ve loved Chanel, the brand for as long as I remember and I find Coco Chanel fascinating. Many moons ago I used their skincare exclusively. When the Sublimage launched in 2006, I tried it and later bought my fair share of jars. It was extravagant at the time (Let’s just blame the Celtic Tiger) but it wasn’t until recently that I realised/remembered how good it was.

She spoke to me in May when I went to buy my little end of year Thank you gifts and guys she didn’t forget. {That’s the kind of service you get with Chanel} I picked them up!

20140705-233723-85043174.jpgAs for the face cream. It’s ridiculously good. It just suits my skin. (I’m a firm believer when it comes to skincare to go with what works for you) THIS works for me. I love the size of these samples too…5ml! It’s a solid sample. I’ve been saving this little beauty after I was given a few at Christmas but I’m cracking into it now. If you’re looking to splurge a little on your skin…get your butt to a Chanel counter (My favourites are Cathy or Paul in Liffey Valley and Samantha in Brown Thomas, she’ll be back before Christmas) get some samples and give your skin a treat.
