A Clean Spring Glow: Dior Skincare and Beauty Favorites

Dior Beauty.
Springtime is synonymous with renewal...from the catharsis of plentiful rain showers (and the subsequent flowers that bloom) to deep cleaning one's house (I'm skipping it this time around since I just moved), it's a time to refresh and revitalize. 

In honor of the season, today I am sharing some Dior Beauty products from Bloomingdales that are giving me a complexion reset and and a dash of glow!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well the Bottom Line...

The Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum
To begin, the Dior Capture Youth Collection has arrived at Bloomingdales, offering a spectrum of formulas that target specific skin concerns with the chief objective of returning one's canvas to its brightest and bounciest former self. I am particularly compelled by the Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum.

Applying the Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum
Rich with actives like Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids, the Dior Capture Youth Collection has arrived at Bloomingdales encourages gentle cell turnover (with no irritation!) for firmer, brighter and more radiantly even skin. To reap the most tangible benefits, I apply the lightweight serum both day and night and deeply appreciate that it can be added into a cream (should extra moisture be desired) for even more versatility. Each morning, my skin appears restored and more luminous and I can't wait to continue to integrate this into my regular routine for more pronounced long-term results! 

The dropper allows for precision when dispensing the formula. 


    An anti-fatigue weapon against dull complexions. This illuminating serum is a glow-booster to help restore radiance. Murunga Plum, known to be 100 times more concentrated in Vitamin C than oranges, combined with alpha hydroxy acid helps to brighten the complexion and smooth skin texture. Enriched with antioxidant-boosting** iris extract and composed of 80%* naturally-derived ingredients, this serum has a lightweight texture that offers a natural glow and energizes skin, helping it resist aggressions, such as stress, fatigue and jet lag.

    Skin exfoliation +40% ***. After 4 weeks****, 100% of women saw more luminous and even complexions.

    Apply the Glow Booster Serum daily before your cream for targeted treatment. For faster application, add 2 to 3 drops of the Glow Booster Serum to the Capture Youth creme and mix in the palm of your hand before applying. 

    *Values calculated on the basis of ISO standard 16128 part II and according to the raw ingredient data sent to date by Dior's suppliers.
    **In vitro test on ingredients.
    ***In vivo Clinical test, 10 women after 6 hours.
    ****Use test, 60 women.
    Three steps to a fresh-faced canvas. 
    To create a fresh-faced canvas that lasts the entire day, I follow the Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum with a few drops of the ultra-pigmented Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover 24-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in 031 Sand (reviewed HERE). A little of this weightless formula goes a long way to even skin tone while resisting creasing and migration over the course of a long day. 

    Dior Diorblush Vibrant Color Powder Blush in 849 Mimi Bronze
    Then, I use the brilliant Dior Diorblush Vibrant Color Powder Blush in 849 Mimi Bronze--which, incidentally, is the quintessential fusion of bronzer and blush--to gently sculpt and warm up my face while imparting a subtle flush. 

    Despite having well over 100 bronzers and blushes in my collection, I can confidently say that I have never encountered a powder that so effortlessly walks the line between the two categories...needless to say, it's been on heavy repeat as of late (and will also be making an appearance in an upcoming video).

    Working on the eyes. 
    For eyes, I recently discovered the Dior Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow in 573 Mineral and 658 Cosmopolite. Both hues are a warm neutral-lover's dream, boasting satin and metallic finishes, respectively, that drench the eyes in saturated color. Mineral  is a soft camel meets bronze that blends like butter with creaseless performance. A healthy dose of the incandescent, slightly deeper taupe Cosmopolite blended in the crease towards the brow bone takes the look to the next-level. Together the duo is unmitigatedly effortless.

    I finished this clean and glowy, pared-down look with an ample dose of the x Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Balm in #101 Matte Pink. Hydrating and smoothing, this balm delivers a lovely dose of customized pink with an unexpected matte finish that makes lips look lush and full. Since picking this up in January, I wear this particular shade like crazy as it's the perfect insouciant pink to apply on the go!

    Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this overview of some of my current Dior Beauty favorites at Bloomies . The Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum is an excellent way to invite skin to glow from the inside out and I cannot get enough of the Dior Diorblush Vibrant Color Powder Blush in 849 Mimi Bronze (where have you been all my life?) and Dior Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow in 573 Mineral for a flattering wash of color. 

    What are some of your favorite Dior Beauty products? Do tell! 

    Good things ahead, including a chatty new video (going live this weekend!) and a foundation extravaganza...more soon,
