Swiss Perfection Cellular Moisturizing Day Cream comes in a 30mL pump bottle at 225 Swiss Franc, which makes it one of the most extravagant hydrating creams in the luxury beauty market. It still falls into the prevention category, so there isn't so much to expect in terms of already progressed signs of aging solely from the moisturiser as its function is simple.
Swiss Perfection Cellular Moisturizing Day Cream carries the brand's signature invigorating sweet citrus scent, which may be too overpowering to those with sensitive skin and/or simply scent sensitivity. It not only contains artificial fragrance but also high phenoxyethanol, so basically skin that doesn't get along with Chanel skincare won't be a good fit.
Preserves optimal moisture levels in the epidermis. Activates the cellular renewal process, bringing suppleness and moisture while protecting the skin from premature aging.
Apply every morning with gentle upward movements.

Swiss Perfection Cellular Moisturizing Day Cream has a generic creamy texture, and I would say that it feels closer to slightly densified emulsion which feels a little lighter than regular day creams on the market.
Due to the nature of the day cream, it goes onto skin very smooth and nice without making a veil on the top. It absorbs fast without any oily or sticky residue, and it gives a beautiful satiny velvety finish once it's all set.
There isn't much deep hydration honestly, but it moisturises skin well enough for any daytime suncare/ make-up routine.
Upon application, skin feels subtly moisturised, but I always found the cream to be not sufficient, especially during cold seasons as my skin tends to get drier. And if you go on long haul trips frequently, you may also want to add a few drops of face oil into the cream for better longevity of moisturisation. The consistency of the cream makes it very easy to customise your daytime skincare routine as you could even mix a drop or two of foundation to make a lightweight creamy tinted moisturiser too. The versatility that the day cream gives me is indeed a bonus.
Although it's called day cream, my skin had no issues using Cellular Moisturizing Day Cream even during the nighttime since there's no built-in SPF in the cream. My skin felt and looked visibly smoother and velvety soft to the touch with suppleness upon wake-up and even after washing my face. Having said that, it still doesn't give that intensity of moisturisation that most of their luxury skincare competitors provide, which won't be an ideal for dehydrated/dry/mature skin unless it's layered over a reliable hydrating serum for better results. Nevertheless, the cream works fine as a companion to their other serums that you may be already using as it keeps my skin well-rested and somewhat balanced.
