Reading Time: 6 minutes

Nighttime is a moment we all get to ourselves. It is a marvellous time of respite from this hectic life. A path toward letting go leads us to our dreams and absolute fulfilment. Some nights are so merry that they last into the morning—the epitome of freedom and independence. Others, under foreign skies, are abbreviated by a time difference. Whether or not we can take full advantage of these hours suspended in time, SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit holds within its bottle a nighttime journey that brings us to the far reaches of the earth and leads to the most wonderful of destinations: the inner self. CHANEL brings its very best in terms of know-how for the great benefit of its customers.

By targeting the precious nighttime hours, SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit becomes a metronome for beauty. A dreamlike skincare treatment that brings you back to yourself and gives your skin divine radiance, whether time is running out or stretching on luxuriously before you. Under the magical, intimate cover of night, the SUBLIMAGE journey continues…

Why is targeting the nighttime a good thing?

As someone deeply passionate about skincare, I’ve always been intrigued by how our skin behaves differently at various times of the day. I find CHANEL’s approach with their new SUblimage L’Extrait de Nuit fascinating. They’ve harnessed the unique power of night when our skin undergoes a remarkable transformation.

For years, we’ve known that circadian rhythms govern our body and mind; these biological clocks dictate our physical, mental, and behavioural changes over a 24-hour cycle. CHANEL, a pioneer in skincare research since 2001, has taken this knowledge to the next level by studying how these rhythms affect our skin.

During the day, our skin is a warrior, constantly battling against aggressors like pollution, UV rays, and stress. These elements can hasten the ageing process, making our skin appear tired and older than it is. But nighttime, oh, it’s a different story! Night offers a soothing respite when our skin switches gears to focus on repair and rejuvenation. It’s a period of detoxification and recovery, crucial for maintaining youthful, radiant skin.

However, our hectic lifestyles often disrupt these natural cycles. Irregular sleep patterns and stress can slow the skin’s nighttime renewal, leading to premature ageing. This is where Sublimage L’Extrait de Nuit comes into play. Its formula is crafted to work harmoniously with the skin’s night rhythms, delivering powerful active ingredients that support and enhance this natural rejuvenation process.

The idea that a skincare product can effectively turn back the clock, simulating the effects of a good night’s sleep, is miraculous. With its blend of chronopeptide and Himalayan swertia, coupled with the rejuvenating properties of Vanilla Planifolia, this product is a testament to CHANEL’s commitment to innovative, science-backed skincare.

In our busy lives, where moments of rest can be rare, SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit offers more than skincare; it’s a nightly journey to self-care and radiance. It’s not just about looking good; it’s about feeling reconnected with oneself, regardless of the day’s chaos. Essentially, it’s not just a product; it’s a nightly ritual that helps me reclaim my time and my skin’s vitality.

CHANEL SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit: The Product

In keeping with the skin’s nightly rhythms, the powerful active ingredients in SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit are delivered throughout the night. Upon awakening, as if after 8 hours of sleep, the skin is visibly rested, fresh and radiant. From the first rays of dawn to the dead of night, SUBLIMAGE Les Extraits works round the clock to enhance every woman’s beauty, no matter her lifestyle, turning time into a faithful ally.
The new SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit formula accounts for the chronobiological factors of the skin. It is enriched with a powerful, naturally derived chronopeptide and an active ingredient complex obtained from Himalayan swertia, whose reparative power complements the exceptional rejuvenating properties of polyfractioned Vanilla Planifolia. Ultra-concentrated skincare is securely housed in redesigned, double-walled glass packaging that can be refilled as often as desired. 

L’Extrait de Nuit is infused with the full rejuvenating power of two SUBLIMAGE icons: vanilla from Madagascar and polyfractioned Vanilla Planifolia, an exclusive active ingredient derived from it. Cultivated against a lush natural backdrop in the island’s open-sky laboratory, this botanical treasure continues to reveal powerful effects on senescence initiation. CHANEL has brought together its active fractions for this precious skincare treatment. The intense vanilla water that drips from its seed pods provides a natural shield against free radicals. Its éphémères act on a rejuvenating enzyme. Its flowers are transformed into enfleurage oil, which envelops the skin, delivering softness and comfort. Finally, polyfractioned Vanilla Planifolia, which has protective and rejuvenating benefits, increases cell regeneration threefold.

Black and gold. These colours, emblematic of both CHANEL and SUBLIMAGE, are also evocative of the depths of night, a sky full of glittering stars. These precious hues that envelop SUBLIMAGE L’Extrait de Nuit are spotlighted for the first time by new refillable packaging.

The glass bottle now houses a refill crafted from thin, delicate glass that can be removed and replaced—a technical feat, adorned with a gold-hued aluminium cap. Inspired by the desire for beauty that transcends time to create a more sublime future, the new refillable bottle symbolises serenity. A possession kept close at hand, like a calming invitation, a guarantee that each night will be a marvellous inner journey.

Its groundbreaking approach to harnessing the skin’s circadian rhythms sets this potion apart in a saturated market.

It’s a pioneering step in understanding how skin care can be synchronized with our biological clocks, a concept relatively unexplored until now.

Infused with a potent chronopeptide and Himalayan swertia, it transcends the typical formulae. This blend, enriched by the rejuvenating essence of Vanilla Planifolia, works not just on the surface but at a cellular level, aiding in the skin’s natural detoxification and renewal processes.
