Many products on the market aim to soften lines and wrinkles or diminish problems that are already present and persistent. They may be effective to some degree but it is easier to prevent than treat and this luxurious collection is packed with powerful natural ingredients that control and improve the way your skin ages. The high concentration of antioxidants, botanicals and emollients, stimulates the epidermis, strengthens and retexturizes for a youthful appearance.
There are 5 serums available to customize your routine: Glow Booster, Plump Filler, Matte Maximize, Lift Sculptor and Redness Soother. Each formula is designed to work with the Captured Youth Creme for optimal results. They can also be mixed, matched and layered to create intensive treatments.
I’ve been using the Glow Booster Illuminating Serum ($120.00) to restore radiance and enhance moisture. This formula is 100 times more concentrated in Vitamin C than oranges and contains AHA to even skin tone, fade blemishes, brighten, correct, and improve texture. During periods of stress, jet lag or sleeplessness, the serum energizes and rejuvenates dull, lackluster skin while hydrating and smoothing. I use it to replenish my complexion after strenuous workouts, late nights and long flights. It also works wonders when skin is sensitive, irritated or red.
The serum is lightweight, gentle, non-greasy and comforting with a silky finish. It also absorbs quickly, sinks in deeply and smells great! Dior has perfected the medicine dropper to deliver precise single-drop application so there is no product waste.
The Age-Delay Plumping Serum ($120.00) is one of my favorite primers for makeup! The luscious liquid feels like a refreshing drink for parched skin and the texture is supple and velvety. Infused with a nutritive blend of botanicals and Hyaluronic Acid the serum restores fullness, deeply hydrates, boosts elasticity, improves resiliency and protects against environmental aggressors. It also helps fill lines and smooth rough patches so skin appears even, dewy and healthy.
I layer the serums with the Captured Youth Creme ($120.00) to create a potent night mask that rejuvenates, repairs and prevents visible signs of aging as I get my beauty rest. The texture is rich, ultra nourishing and moisturizing to combat the effects of impurities, dryness and pollution while the antioxidants prevent free-radical damage. This is a fantastic cream for winter and it leaves skin incredibly soft, sleek and beautiful.
I’ve also discovered a new Miss Dior fragrance called Blooming Bouquet that has quickly become a favorite. The mini bottle ($90.00 for 30 ml) is great for travel and the scent is a refreshing new twist on the original perfume that debuted in 1947. This version is romantic, whimsical, stirring and modern. The dark, earthy notes were eliminated and replaced by a sparkling blend of pink peppercorn, rose, peony, citrus, patchouli and white musk. The result is an intoxicating, seductive aroma that is delicate, radiant and feminine.
Dior is available at The Bay, Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, Holt Renfrew and Dior counters nationwide.
