Skincare Product: Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Serum

I love serums.. I love the whole concept of them and I have to always have two different serums in my skincare routine..

I have never looked into Dior's skincare line before.. But I have read so many great things about the Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Serum.. And since I was in need of a serum at that time, I thought I'd go ahead and give this a try.. 

This 30ml bottle lasted me about two and half months.. Almost three I would say.. Which is great as I can honestly say that I gave it time to work..

What is One Essential & What Does it Do?

- It's an anti-ageing correction booster so it helps your other products work better
- It eliminates the toxins that weaken the cells and block cellular regeneration thus it detoxifies your skin as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Corrects and brightens your complexion


- Very light-weight and runny
- Blends in and gets absorbed easily
- Leaves a slightly sticky feeling

How I Used it

- I applied two pumps every morning and night and gently massaged it into my face and neck

Has it Changed my Skin?

- Not so much to be honest
- It felt alright on my skin
- I did feel that the products I applied afterwards worked a little better
- It didn't do much in terms of brightening my skin
- No changes in my fine lines

My Final Thoughts: I don't regret buying this product.. I'm glad I've tried it but I just don't feel that it changed my skin much at all.. And for the price it was, I expected a lot more..

Would I Repurchase It? Definitely Not

Have you tried the Dior One Essential Serum?
What's your favourite face serum?

That's too bad! Being 22, I'm starting to look at serums and anti aging stuff as preventative measures. I agree with you - for the price, this should have changed your skin in a noticeable way.

I havent tried any Dior skincare either but I have heard some good things about them. Sorry to hear this one didnt do anything for you. I agree that you'd wanna get more out of what you paid for! xo

I've tried another of Dior's serums, I don't remember which but it looked similar to this :p this was a few yrs back. I love serums too! Currently using a Philosophy one. It's too bad this one didn't work for you =/

Eden-Avalon - Ya serums really helo with prevention.. And it's good that you're starting now ;)

PopBlush - Thanks sweets

Rainy Days and Lattes - I've never tried philosophy serums.. Are they any good?

When I tried this serum I used it for about 3 days, and then it started making my skin peel =( eeks! I have sensitive skin though so that could be why.. but when I used to work for Dior, this product would just fly off the shelves! Its really concentrated so its probably best for people who have deep wrinkles? I really like their Hydraction serum though! That one I had no problems with =)

I think this product is designed for the over 50's - Sharon Stone is their spokesmodel! This probably wasn't an appropriate product for your skin, lol!

Delyteful Speaks said...

Janalyn - Ouch! That sounds horrible!!

Jamilla Camel - hahaha you're probably right =P

I have just started using a serum, like 3 months ago and I can't believe I haven't started sooner! I love using my Origins one, I think it makes a huge difference on my face! :)

UrbanMermaid said...

Aww what a shame, I was seriously considering buying this. I had almost the same experience with Genifique.. it was alright but I expected more considering the price. Maybe they don't work now because we're too young for serums anyway lol xx

I have never tried the Dior Serum, but I really like one I tried from Chanel, I can't remember the name, I will have to look when I get home. I am not that into serums at the moment as I tend to break out if I put too many anti-aging type things on my skin. :( It works better in the winter for me because my skin gets drier.

Delyteful Speaks said...

Ebru - I've been meaning to try origins.. Got my eyes on their brightening pads and serum...

UrbanMermaid - Yah I think this serum wasn't really for my age.. But the SA said it would work.. I guess that's what u get for listening to SA

Danielle - I love serums! I love what they do to my complexion.. But this one just didn't do it for me unfortunately..
