When I was asked to try out Dior’s new anti-aging skin perfector, Dreamskin, I jumped at the thought of trying it. After all, the name promises “dreamy” skin, and it tackles a variety of skin problems for all ages and skin types.
Dior Dreamskin, which just hit department stores this month, is part of the brand’s Capture Totale line of skincare and makeup products. Priced at $110, the weightless serum hybrid promises to work on the surface of the skin as well as below to fight the signs of aging, boost radiance, and correct dark spots, redness, and large pores.
Two key components make up the serum: optical properties and active biological ingredients plucked from the Dior Gardens—farms in various locales that grow potent flowering plants that are infused in the brand’s elegant skincare. Optical ingredients, such as biomimetic mineral powders, contain mica platelets and diffusing silica microspheres. The mica platelets help diffuse light and leave a radiant glow, while the silica microspheres give a “blurring” effect and even out texture and tone. Active botanicals such as longoza extract target stem cells to help firm and plump skin while opilia extract targets dark spots, pores, and redness.
Frigid cold temperatures here in the Northeast have made my skin drier than normal, but this pale pink-hued silky serum has given it a moisture boost without causing any breakouts. I’ve been wearing it during the day, and apply one or two pumps to my cheeks and forehead after my daily moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and leaves a nice velvety matte finish with a subtle sheen that is more noticeable around the cheekbones.
I’ve worn it alone and with makeup and I prefer the latter as my bare face needs some coverage. After using the new serum for over a week, I’ve noticed my skin’s texture is more even and my pores seem less noticeable. It has also kept my skin hydrated and smooth; however, I did not notice a big difference with my redness.
For now, I will keep incorporating Dior’s new Dreamskin into my daily beauty routine as I like how it feels on my skin and works well with my makeup. I encourage you to try it, too.
