Retailing at Sephora at $120 for 30ml/1oz, this serum is available in a variety of different styles to suit every need. I got the Intense Rescue serum to help combat the excessive winter dryness that plagues my skin. Dior can usually be relied upon to produce an excellent and sought after product. This time is no exception.
The packaging for this serum is a lovely glass bottle with a dropper lid. The serum itself has a sweet light scent and is designed to provide lipids to dry skin. The formula soaks in quickly and applies smoothly with no stickiness or feeling of anything sitting on the skin.
It absolutely works. My skin was instantly nourished, comfortable, happy and it stayed that way all day. I am totally in love with how this serum plumps my skin, makes it feel soft and supple and how it lasts. I use this under my moisturizer, I used it on its own, I use it in the morning and I use it at night.
The Argan and Tamanu oils work beautifully with the Iris Florentina to make my skin look and feel great. Sephora offers many different formulations, from Redness to Glow serums and recently debuted Capture Youth Age-Delay Eye Treatment.
Formulated without SLS, Parabens, SLES, and Phthalates this serum does a fantastic job of hydrating the skin. Is it worth the very costly price? Yes. For me, it is worth every penny. I place a high value on products that allow my skin to look good. This product stopped my skin from looking crepey and paper like. For that reason alone I would be happy to fill a bathtub with this and soak in it. After all, I need all the help that I can get.
