Our eyes speak a thousand words. They can communicate our emotions in the space of an instant. Joy, love, sadness, compassion, surprise… It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. But the singularity of each individual’s eyes is also the product of a subtle, harmonious equation between the eyebrows, eyelids and eyelashes, all of which help make them unique.
To keep the eyes sparkling and ensure they retain their expression, the area around them requires special care, as it is the most delicate part of the face and the skin is very thin. Our eyes are also in continual movement and constantly under strain from the light emitted by our screens as well as fatigue and pollution. To protect this sensitive area from an ever-increasing number of external stressors, CHANEL has developed a comprehensive skincare treatment for 2022: SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX. A serum that reframes the eye area.
L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX joins CHANEL’s most precious skincare line: SUBLIMAGE. It is tailored to cater individuals of all ages, at every step of the skincare ritual. The epitome of luxury, combines pleasure with efficacy, enhancing one’s beauty and helping set the stage to address skin aging. SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX was born from this holistic approach, which provides a comprehensive solution for the eye area. It restores the under-eye area in three key ways: SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX helps skin rejuvenate itself, illuminates the eyes by reducing the appearance of dark circles, and leaves the eyelashes and eyebrows visibly denser.
The sensory qualities of a serum
L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX has a fine, lightweight texture that sets it apart: this exceptional gel-emulsion is a sensorial delight to use. Its fragrance-free formula absorbs into the skin instantly without leaving behind a greasy film, for smooth, generous application. It delivers an intense feeling of freshness.
Improved lash and brow density
The eyebrows and eyelashes both play an integral role in framing the eyes. The denser they are, the better they highlight the contrasts of the face. L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX is formulated with an active ingredient for under-eye care that also helps improve lash and brow density, a first for CHANEL. The intensity of the gaze is restored.
A rejuvenated eye area
SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX encompasses all the anti-aging expertise of SUBLIMAGE. It harnesses the power of two botanical jewels sourced from the House’s open-sky laboratories; true centers of production and experimentation, it is here that CHANEL creates its signature, exceptionally effective active ingredients with the utmost respect for nature.
L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX is enriched with Polyfractioned Vanilla Planifolia, a one-of-a-kind variety of vanilla grown in Madagascar that has become the SUBLIMAGE line’s star ingredient due to its unparalleled wealth of active components. The formula helps smooth the eye area (+15%)*; wrinkles and fine lines are less visible (-20%)*. The eyelids and under-eye area have a firmer appearance. SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX helps rejuvenate skin.
The formula also contains solidago, an active ingredient known for its extraordinary redensifying properties. The eye area appears firmer.

THE SUBLIMAGE SKINCARE EXPERIENCE
Taking time for self-care
The massage technique used to apply this eye treatment is particularly important. For maximum efficacy, apply SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX to the eye contour, lashes, and brows every morning and evening. This comforting technique offers a way to practice self-care while benefiting the skin. Using your ring finger, apply three drops under the eye and three drops on the upper eyelid, as well as one drop on the external corner of the eye. Start by smoothing the under-eye area in an outward direction with gliding movements, then perform the same movement on the upper eyelid. Next, lightly tap the upper cheekbones to boost microcirculation in the skin tissue. Then, smooth deeply over the eyebrows in an outward direction. Finally, press gently the eyelashes with two fingers and massage them from root to tip.
The exceptional skincare ritual
SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE YEUX is the very first step of the SUBLIMAGE skincare ritual, helping to restore the intensity of the gaze. SUBLIMAGE L’ESSENCE FONDAMENTALE, the second step in the routine, works like a serum to help tighten and strengthen the skin. In addition, SUBLIMAGE LA CRÈME YEUX delivers its rejuvenating properties and energizes tired-looking eyes. SUBLIMAGE LE BAUME, the fourth and final step, concentrates the power of SUBLIMAGE in a soothing formula. Skin is left smoother, softer, and visibly nourished.
