Mirror, mirror, on the wall…

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall… Who´s the most handsome of them all?” That´s right. Whoever said that women were the only allowed to use beauty products was totally wrong. The I´m-a-macho-and-I-don´t-care-how-I-look days are over and we coulnd´t be any happier about that. And what´s the reason of this happiness? The new skin-care line that CHANEL created for both men and women.
Three must-haves that no man wants to miss.
Guys, say Goodbye!  to the days where no girls looked at you on the street and get ready to be the new hottie of the block!

First, comes “Le Jour,”  specially created to be used in the morning, right after taking a shower. Made from many different natural elements, Le Jour helps to keep the skin well hydrated.

Then we have “La Nuit,” which must be applied every night before sleeping. La Nuit cleans the skin pores in a very deep but gentle way.

And finally, “Le Weekend” arrives. It enhances skin renewal by deeply exfoliating and boosts luminosity by hydrating for the week ahead.
