Chanel’s Precision range of skin care products are aimed mainly at city dwellers – they claim to wash off the pollution from your skin and leave it fresh and balanced. Almost like a detox for your skin :-). Let’s see if it lives up to its claim!
Name of the Product:
Chanel Rinse-Off Foaming Mousse Cleanser Balance + Anti Pollution.
Mine is a gift, but it’s available on some websites for approximately Rs. 3,000
There isn’t much information on the packaging and this is what I got from the website:
- Tulip Tree Extract – Planted everywhere to de-pollute air. The leaves are covered with a protective wax that traps pollutants which are washed away with the rain.
- Bioglucane – boosts the cleansing action of Tulip Tree Extract and helps balance the skin without stripping its natural barrier.
- For normal to combination skin.
- De-polluting power of Tulip Tree Extract.
- Emollient properties of Mallow extract.
- Gently purifies.
- Respects the skin’s eco-balance.
- Moisturizing effects.
My Experience with Chanel Precision Mousse Douceur Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser:
The cleanser is a plain, simple-looking white tube with a black screw cap. The opening is sealed, which is reassuring 🙂 The product is a soft, pearl colored mousse, very airy and light. There isn’t a strong fragrance, just a mild scent that reminds you of flowers and expensive cosmetics 🙂
Directions of use are to work into a foam with water in the palm of the hand and apply in circular movements, avoiding the eye area. Rinse well. They suggest following up the cleanser with the Chanel Gentle Hydrating Toner Balance + Anti Pollution.
The mousse lathers instantly, and the foam feels light and non sticky. It is also equally easy to wash off, leaving the face clean and fresh-feeling. You really feel squeaky clean, without the need of any kind of aggressive rubbing or excessive water to get rid of the foam. No residue is left behind and there is no tingling/burning sensation either. Skin is left feeling smooth and ultra soft. There are some cleansers that leave your skin feeling clean, but at the same time a little stretched. This one doesn’t have that issue, skin feels hydrated.
I needed a very small amount for my face and neck, so this tube should go a long way. This is ideal to use after a whole day of wearing heavy makeup; you can go to bed feeling light and fresh and of course, clean 🙂
I am not sure how exactly to use this as a makeup remover. I preferred using it like this – regular makeup remover to remove makeup followed by Chanel Rinse-Off Mousse Cleanser to clean face.
Other products in the Chanel Cleansing Foam range are the Chanel Exfoliating Cleansing Foam Purity + Anti-Pollution and the Chanel Mousse Confort Rinse-Off Foaming Mousse Cleanser.
Additional Information: I am 31, my skin is normal with a very slightly oily T zone. I don’t have a tendency for acne or allergies.
Pros of Chanel Precision Mousse Douceur Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser:
- Very soft mousse.
- Lathers instantly.
- A little goes a long way.

- Washes off easily without leaving behind any residue.
- Skin feels clean and soft.

Cons of Chanel Precision Mousse Douceur Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser:
- Availability in India.
Considering only the product and its quality, definitely, but taking into consideration the price, I am on the fence, it is definitely a high quality product, but there are quite a lot of good face washes out there which are only a fraction of the cost. If you are planning to splurge – I say go for it!!
