Being a fan of Dior makeup, I always have high expectations from Dior skincare. I have combination skin type which is prone to hormonal congestion time to time, means my skin produces more oil than it should actually, few times in a month. So I am always on the hunt for purifying or detoxifying serums and treatments that may help. I was sent Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum a few weeks back and I have been using this in my skincare routine on and off since then. I have been a regular with this since 3 weeks so as to give you some insight and share my reviews about it.
Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum(CAD $130 per 30ml), a daily detox booster is described as more than just a serum, it detoxifies, regenerates, and boosts skin for a revitalized complexion. Daily, skin faces an onslaught of aggressors: UV rays, stress, and pollution. The solution: the new One Essential, with a more powerful formula that targets 100% of both outdoor and — for the first time — indoor toxins such as carpet, glue, varnishes, and electronic devices. One Essential quadruples the effects of active ingredients in the skincare products that follow(3) (retinol, vitamin C, longoza, hyaluronic acid, and bifidus) for lasting radiance.
The packaging of this serum is in a glass bottle with a pump. It feels very feminine with rounded curves, the color and print on the bottle is very attractive. The serum is described to target external pollutants and UV like ozone, exhaust pipe gas, heavy metals and also stress/fatigue which is a natural recycling mechanism of toxins slow down. It detoxifies skin cells, regenerates and boosts the performance of the subsequently applied skincare by up to 4 times.
The key ingredient of this serum is Hibiscus. Hibiscus is a natural detoxifying ingredient and used in many countries and parts of the world for its benefits. It stimulates the natural detoxifying mechanism of the cell (proteasome) and releases the cellular energy. Toxins get recycled into raw material for the skin and target action down to the stem cells. The texture of the serum is “serum-in-milk” means it combines the power of a serum with the gentle touch of milk.
The serum is an important step of my skincare routine. Based on what my skin needs and the concerns, I either use a single serum or I layer two or three serums like I use a purifying serum and then use a hyaluronic hydrating serum or I may use a purifying or detoxifying serum and then follow with the radiance boosting serum. So depending on what my skin needs, I change my products. This serum is a nice addition to my skin care routine. It is very refreshing and does absorb into the skin very rapidly. I use this serum after cleansing or double cleansing my skin. I use this serum, one pump is enough for my whole face due to the slippery texture of it. I follow with either another serum on tops of it or just a moisturizer over it. Depending upon whether it is day or night, I follow with sunscreen and makeup. I had no issues like makeup rolling over or something when I use this serum I experience no irritation or breakouts from this. My skin feels fresh, plumped and radiant when I use this serum.
No doubt, this is based on technology inspired by a Nobel Prize discovery (Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2004 for the discovery of proteasome) and I have been loving the results so far. Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum is available at Dior counters nationwide and respective retailer .com sites.
