Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for February 18th, 2010


Christian Dior certainly takes the cosmetic division seriously. Capture Totale is transcendent anti-aging collection by Parfums Christian Dior, incorporating Dior’s exclusive science technology for more beautiful skin. I’m interested in their skin care, meanwhile I also concern they are way complicated for my sensitive skin, hence sample is really a good option here.


According to Dior, Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Eye Treatment intensely corrects all visible signs of aging and helps recreate the deep radiance of a visibly younger skin. It targets those have shown first sign of aging for intensive anti-aging eye treatment.



The texture is lovely. It’s somewhere between fluid and cream, so I’ll call it emulsion like. Yet, feeling rich and absorbs quickly by skin with finger patting method. The moisturizing film isn’t greasy at all which eye makeup can clings easily over it. Fragrance is florally but unnoticeable most of the time. Still, I prefer non-fragranced eye care.


My eye contours were well moisturized, perhaps in perfect way. All I need was only a rice size amount and patting with a light finger for few seconds to get the light cream settled. Loving the superior moisturizing effect, I could simply omit an eye cream afterward or no necessary to re-apply like my other eye creams. Nevertheless, in very drying winter month, sadly the reapplication still required.


As I only used sample size for nearly a week, I couldn’t tell if it improved any aging signs, though moisturizing factor was always my priority. By having proper moisturized eye area, my fine lines at least became less visible immediately upon laughing, and that actually persisted for whole day. No irritation, no warming/burning sensation, a comfortable eye care experience instead. Really, I was highly satisfied.



Nevertheless, I don’t think it reduced puffiness. For me, if there was no improvement on eye puffiness in few days, then it wouldn’t be in long term. Mine is more on aging sign. According to expert, none of the eye cream could get rid of it and only can be eliminated by plastic surgery. However, I can still hoping an anti-aging care will eventually tighten the eye contour a little bit, subsequently reduces the puffiness. Most importantly, delay (or prevent?) the wrinkle forming.


Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Eye Treatment claimed it helps with the radiance of eye area. Apparently I didn’t notice that at all, most probably I don’t have visible dark eye circles. However, my pictures below may show you it actually does help a little bit. Any eye care that contains mica can impart such minor effect. You may think the shimmer was due to the moisturizing film, but that was because my limited photography skill couldn’t captured the detail, in reality the peraly-shimmer was visible under dim light.


Finger patting the eye treatment on skin


The moisturizing film (circled) settled for about 10 minutes. Comparing to bare skin, there were subtle shimmers in fact.


Lastly, amongst all eye care I’ve tried so far, this has one of the lightest consistency, smallest amount to be needed for each application and delivered highly satisfiable moisturizing effect. It completely changed my narrow perception that thicker texture will give better moisturization. I truly impressed and enjoyed each application very much. Only the ingredient list keep me hesitated. I’ve few eye cream samples on hand now, in case I don’t meet my ideal one after enough try, I’ll purchase this one (THB3150/15ml).
