I recently finished using a few products from the Dior Hydra Life skincare line and wanted to share my thoughts on these products in case anyone is looking to try the Dior Hydra products!
Dior Pro-Youth Sorbet Essence
Dior describes the essence as a “concentrate of natural goodness deeply reinvigorates the skin by boosting the circulation of water right down to the heart of its cells. The skin is revitalized. It appears healthier and full of life”.
I use the essence as a serum after toning water and before lotion. The product costs $65 for a 1 oz (30ml) bottle. The product itself is a lightweight clear gel and is easily absorbed into the skin.
Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Crème vs. Protective Crème
The Sorbet Crème is describes as “this crème fuses with the skin, enveloping it in softness while deeply reinvigorating it. Facial features are replumped. The skin is awakened, softened and feels delightfully comfortable.”
The Protective Crème is described as “a protective defense against external aggressions thanks to its protection against UVA and UVB. The generous and creamy texture provides an intense and long-lasting hydration.”
Both moisturizer cost $60 for 1.7 oz (50ml). The Sorbet Crème is recommended for combination skin and the Protective Crème is recommended for normal to dry skin. I have combination skin and originally purchased the Sorbet Crème but found it was not moisturizing enough for the colder months so I also purchased the Protective Crème. Personally, I used the Sorbet Crème for spring and summer and the Protective Crème for fall and winter.
The Sorbet Crème has a very lightweight, gel-like consistency that is excellent for warmer weather and the product absorbs very quickly. On the other hand, the Protective Crème is a heavier cream and takes some time to absorb but definitely provides more moisturizing which is perfect for colder months. Another difference is the Protective Crème comes with a SPF 15 but the Sorbet Crème does not.
Note: It seems Dior no longer makes the Protective Crème but has since came out with a Silk Crème that does not appear to have SPF.
