You may have been ready for the fountain of youth for a long time and yet, the beauty industry itself has yet to find that. The good news is that, for now, you may have to settle for an overnight deep treatment package for your skin. Dior Capture Totale Intensive Restorative Night Cream for Face and Neck, US $170 for 60 ml, promises to deliver just that for the benefit of your aging skin.
Primarily made with the Longoza Cellular Complex, Centoline, and Grape Seed, this product has been made to deliver the following same results gathered from a 28-day consumer perception study that involved 32 women between the ages 50 and 60:
- 26 per cent said that they experienced more radiant skin
- 17 per cent said that their skin became firmer
- 24 per cent claimed that their dark spots lightened by as much as 34 per cent
- Longoza Extract:Derived from a wild ginger plant endemic to Madagascar, it allegedly acts on 20 cellular-level causes of skin aging, and stimulates faster skin cell metabolism that allows for renewal, repairs and regeneration to happen faster
- Grape Seed:Contains powerful antioxidants that helps correct wrinkles and fights the signs of skin aging; also, helps restore your skin’s strong resilience against damage and developing signs of skin aging
- Centoline:Mentioned in product descriptions but, its role in this formulation has not been explained at all

- Fragrance ingredients in the formulation can potentially cause severe skin irritations, which makes this product not ideal for any skin type but most especially not suitable for people with sensitive and problematic skin
