More than a month ago, I first got wind of a new serum by Dior Capture Totale. It was being launched in Japan (lucky editors who got to go!) On a recent trip to Hong Kong, Dior counters everywhere were trumpeting this wonderful new serum and before I knew it, so were counters in KL.
What it is supposed to be is more than just a regular anti-aging serum. The serum helps to clarify the skin and help with regeneration; and at the same time, plump it up to help wrinkles flatten out.
I’ve been on it for about 2 weeks now and I’m waiting for another 2 weeks before I can tell you conclusively how I feel about this serum. So, whats this wonderful new serum then? Dior says its a “Skin Boosting Super Serum” that helps to eliminate surface toxins on the skin, so your other skincare absorbs better.
Here’s what they say:-
MORE THAN A SIMPLE SERUM, CAPTURE TOTALE ONE ESSENTIAL successfully eliminates toxins at the heart of the skin cells for double anti-aging performance:
Repair more rapidly, more intensively:
Totally freed and perfectly rejuvenated, the cells regain a new breath of vitality. By triggering a repairing “shock wave”, they reactivate the youthful dynamic of the skin. The correction of visible signs of aging is amplified with exceptional effectiveness.
On application, the skin appears and feels spectacularly transformed, smoothed and replumped. The complexion lights up and looks even. It recovers the fresh and rosy glow of dense and elastic skin, infused with youthfulness.
Day after day, the skin becomes more and more beautiful. It seems incredibly younger. After four weeks, the results increase in intensity, rapidity and effectiveness. Wrinkles are smoothed away, the skin is firmed and the complexion shows off new radiance.
How I was advised to use it is after cleansing, before toner. The rationale is because this helps clear toxins so you should use it first. Then follow up with regular skincare – no, I don’t use any other Dior skincare for now 🙂 – and after clearing your skin of toxins, your skin should be able to absorb the nutrients from your other skincare better.
A preliminary view is that it seems to be helping to lighten the deep lines at the nasolabial groove or what is more nicely called “laugh lines”. Perhaps I’m imagining it, but my skin seems to be looking better and feeling more supple overall. I do have some before/after pictures but give me some time to work it through before telling you if its love 😉
I don’t know if I want it to be because of this serum though. It retails for RM360/30ml. I can just hear your yowls of protest. Teehee… 😀
