Today I experienced putting makeup on someone I respect a lot. Even though it’s not the first time I do other people’s makeup, I could still feel the anxiety and the shakiness while I was holding the brush. It is not even hot today but the sweat started to build up on my neck afraid of mistakes. After finishing, I felt relieved seeing the finished look. Everything looked fine especially with covering up imperfections like wrinkles and spots. But at the same time I remembered something frightening.
Everyday when I wake up I am afraid of seeing myself in the mirror. It isn’t because of anything from the night before or even looking tired. I am afraid of seeing fine lines and wrinkles. It is the sign of aging. Something that takes youth away into a dark realm. I can sometimes picture sitting in the corner twiddling my thumbs and panicking. Luckily, Dior has something that can combat such a problem. Something so extraordinary and it’s from the Capture XP line dedicated to fighting wrinkles!
Today I will be showing you both the Ultimate Deep Wrinkle Correction Serum and the Ultimate Wrinkle Correction Night Creme.
Let’s start off with the serum. It is a serum that provides magical powers where it can preserve and restore the density beneath each wrinkle. The science behind it is such a phenomenon that if you think about it, this serum can travel into the skin even to the deepest layers and rebuild, revitalize, and reduce the wrinkles. Inside the box is also an instructions booklet teaching you how to do the ritual for using it.
This serum bottle comes in such a calm color going from a full darker shade of violet all the way to silver. It’s like using the gradient tool in Photoshop. On the flip side, it could very well mean that if we get to the deeper ends of our skin it gets deeper and darker. Besides the gradient violet bottle, the cap is made of silver colored lightweight plastic material. Finally, it has a air-free pump with the tiniest line that you cannot see with the naked eye, very similar to the Diorsnow line. I think it is great because it’s much easier to control how much serum to pump out each time and it also prevents dust and particles from getting into the bottle.
This gel-fluid serum is not only smooth, it also provides an instant firming effect. A pump or two provides an ample amount for the entire face. The serum has a light clean fresh fragrance to it that disappears after it is fully absorbed into the face. The serum is ultra lightweight and it doesn’t feel sticky.
The night creme obviously gives the best results after using it at night. What the creme does is that it delivers and enhances the skin that is beneath the wrinkles causing the skin to be plumped and smooth.
Aside from the instructions book that shows you how the ritual of this night creme should be performed, the case design is a perfectly oval shaped jar. It also has the same coordinating colors as the serum except darker overall in the color violet. Twisting and turning the cap will open the jar for use.
One of the things I love about Dior is that their creme are always sealed for freshness. Each creme I have come across all have a foil wrapped seal to it where you will have to pull and take off before use. This not only keeps the creme fresh, it also seals it from air and other things that could potentially ruin the creme over time. Even after taking off the foil wrap, you will notice that there is an inner cap that protects the creme from leakage and dust. Simply pull the tab when scooping out the creme with the provided spatula.
The creme comes in a rich textured formula. When you bring it up to the nose, there is only a slight scent that’s almost not noticeable when compared to the serum.
When you scoop out a little bit of creme with the enclosed spatula, you will find that the creme absorbs quite nicely already. It is not too oily or even too thick at all. You could even smooth it out quite rapidly without the need of emulsifying. Some cremes are hard and takes time to absorb. You just feel them being overly rich and buttery that sits on top of the skin. What a headache! This creme doesn’t have that problem. Lightweight is one of the terms to call it.
Such advance skincare treatment products, only Dior can formulate. Going beneath the skin and combat wrinkles is like going to the root of the problem. Capture XP really makes the skincare a miracle because even in as little as 2 weeks results can be visibly seen, let alone the box says 1 month. The formula also puts in something that can be easily absorbed by the skin like in-taking nutrients while eating fruits and vegetables. Dior Capture XP is something that can be used to combat wrinkles without the heavy price tags of doctors and possibly even other specialized treatments.
