My first official review after a break. I wanted to start with something that’s good for our face. Everyone needs moisturizers, and I want to tell you all about Dior’s Diorsnow moisturizers. Diorsnow is a brightening line, so naturally, these moisturizers aid in the effectiveness of their brightening serums. Some might experience dryness when using those serums and these moisturizers keep your skin hydrated and dewy. I’ve been using them since mid March, and now, 4 months later, I’m only half way through. For this post, I will tell you about 2 of them, plus 1 bonus 😛
Fresh Creme Global Transparency (RM300)
This is a day moisturizer. I use this after my toner and serum, before my sunscreen. The texture is creamy, so when I first felt it, I was wondering if I would get shiny. I have normal sometimes combination skin, and I’m used to lighter moisturizers in the day. Of course, my concern would be if this is too rich for day time, especially in this humid environment. I’m glad to tell you that it is not. It’s not too rich and it doesn’t make me look like a grease pan by noon. In fact, my face is kept soft and foundations go on without emphasizing flakes around my nose. However, if you have oily skin, you might want to try something else from this line. I have it for you… later in this post 🙂
I love that Dior includes a spatula with these moisturizers. I was going to rant about the packaging because I have to dip my fingers in it, but hey, I spot spatula, so I shut up. LOL!
Diorsnow Anti Spot Repairing Creme (RM335)
This is a night cream. Something to follow the Anti Spot Targeting Serum which I absolutely love. That serum feels a little tacky after application, and this night cream smooths it out. I sleep in an air conditioned room and I find that this moisturizer is rich enough to keep my face hydrated during my sleep. However, I do note that I wake up with oilier skin, and when I splash my face with water, it feels like there’s still moisturizer sitting on top of my skin. I’m not sure if it’s because my skin is not dry enough to absorb everything, or if I apply too much, but after washing my face in the morning, my face feels soft and supple without any tautness. I don’t mind a richer moisturizer at night, and sometimes I even add a face oil before this moisturizer. I did observe my skin looking more hydrated with minimal flaking around my nose.
Now for the bonus.
Diorsnow White Reveal Ultra Purifying Fluid
If you have combination to oily skin, THIS is what you’re looking for. I received some sample tubes of this when I purchased quite a few things from Dior last year, and when I know that I will be out and about in the heat, I always use this moisturizer. It has the ability to mattify my skin almost immediately, while keeping my face moisturized. My skin usually looks dewy and a little shiny before foundation, you know with all the skincare, but when I use this moisturizer, my skin actually looks prepped and ready to go without the need of powder. It is not as emolient as the other moisturizers and it doesn’t glide as much, but BOY does it keep shine away. If you’re looking for something like this, you should go ask for a sample and see how you like it. I hope it’s still available and not discontinued though >.<
A good moisturizer makes a lot of difference, and thankfully, there are so many options out there so we have plenty to choose from. At the moment, I’m enjoying these few and I’m happy to use them up before trying another. Have you tried these, or do you have a fave you want to share?
