Name: Hydraction Corps Body Sorbet Emulsion
From Dior’s website:
Fresh and light, this subtly perfumed milky liquid highly moisturizes and replenishes skin.
What I liked:
– absorbs quickly
– isn’t greasy
What I didn’t like:
– doesn’t last all day
– the fragrance
– the price
My body’s skin is dry and it becomes seriously dehydrated in the cold winter months. So, I’m always looking for a cream that highly moisturizes and this is just what this product claims to do.
The cream is white and has a light, somewhat liquidy although not runny consistency. It goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy at all. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturized, but not as much as I need it and it doesn’t last all day. My skin starts having dry patches again in the evening. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good but overpriced product that does exactly what any moisturizer should do, it’s just doesn’t do much for very dry and dehydrated skin.
I’m not very fond of the scent as I prefer my skincare product to be fragrance-free. However, this has a nice scent that is not overwhelming.
The product contains several emollient ingredients like Isononyl Isononanoate and Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, which is an extract derived from coconut. It also contains Glycerin, which attracts water from the environment and slows down the loss of moisture, and silicones such as Cyclopentasiloxane and Dimethicone, to give skin a smooth feeling. However, one of the main ingredients is Alcohol, which can be drying.
Overall, this moisturizer is just average. It hydrates skin and leaves it soft and smooth. However, it doesn’t hydrates very dry skin very well and doesn’t last all day. And I just can’t seem to justify the price. $40 for a scented moisturizer that does exactly what any regular moisturizer should do is just too much.
