In the realm of luxury skincare, Chanel is nearly untouchable. The iconic brand has been making skincare since 1927 when it launched 15 skincare products aimed to help women improve their skin. Since then, the brand has launched a myriad of skincare products and lines, each aiming to help people achieve their best complexion. At this point, Chanel skincare is a staple for many.
If you're looking to invest in one of Chanel's skincare products, it can be difficult to figure out what might be best for you. I decided to go straight to the source and ask Chanel what its 10 best-selling skincare products are. The results don't disappoint—you could build an entire skincare routine with these iconic products. From an eye cream that mitigates fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness to a CC cream that blurs while it protects, there's something here for everyone. Keep reading to find out what Chanel's 10 best skincare products are and what exactly has made them reach superstar status.

1. Chanel La Mousse
When it comes to the products Marie Claire recommends, we take your faith in us seriously. Every product that we feature comes recommended by a MC writer or editor, or by an expert we've spoken to. Learn more about how we review products.
Consider this the most luxurious cleanser you've ever tried. It goes from cream to foam instantly and is the perfect product for washing off makeup, oil, and sunscreen.
2. Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Intense
I often find that eye-makeup removers feel greasy on my eyelids or turn my makeup into a gloopy mess rather than removing it. This one removes makeup in one swipe and leaves the delicate skin around your eyes feeling soft and hydrated (but never oily).
3. Chanel Le Lift Crème Yeux
If you're looking for a holy-grail eye cream to add to your rotation, look no further. This innovative formula uses botanical alfalfa, which essentially acts as a natural, gentle form of retinol to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles while curbing puffiness and dark circles.
4. Chanel La Crème Main Texture Riche
In my experience, a hand cream is a hand cream. That, however, couldn't be further from the truth in the case of this ultra-luxe, deeply hydrating hand cream. Iris pallida, May rose wax, shea butter, and glycerin are all hero ingredients that nourish, soften, and soothe.
5. Chanel CC Cream
This CC cream fits at the perfect intersection between skincare and makeup. Infused with SPF 50, it protects skin while it adds a luminous, blurring glow. Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid also help nourish the skin.
6. Chanel UV Essentiel
I won't lie to you—$60 feels like a lot to spend on sunscreen, particularly when many drugstore formulas get the job done for less. If you want a sunscreen that's just about perfect, though, this is a one-stop shop. It goes on seamlessly and feels weightless on skin, acting as a grippy primer for makeup.
7. Chanel Le Tonique
You know how toners tend to make skin feel tight and stripped? This one does the exact opposite, moisturizing skin as it tones and preps it for your next skincare steps.
8. Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Crème
If your skin is on the drier side, my guess is that you've probably tried plenty of rich, thick creams to help lock in hydration. The best part about this lightweight gel is that it delivers all the moisture of a luxe cream without any of the heaviness. It leaves skin refreshed and plump.
9. Chanel L’eau De Mousse
Maybe it's just me, but there's something about a densely lathering cleanser that feels so luxurious. The best thing about this one is that it's driven by micellar water, so you can ensure that your face won't feel dried out after you use it.
10. Chanel Le Lift Crème
Botanical alfalfa concentrate is the powerhouse ingredient in this smoothing moisturizer. Not only does it give skin tons of hydration, but it also lifts and tones.
