132 brand: DIOR | Capture totale Claims: Intense correction of all visible signs of aging, acting upon stem cells at the heart of the skin. Discovered in Madagascar 20 years ago by Dior ethnobotanists, Longoza is the antiaging "jewel" in Capture Totale's ingredients. The brand's scientists claim it has exceptional regenerative powers on skin cells. Our tester reports: "If you have dry skin, fine lines, and volume loss, I would highly recommend Dior Capture Totale. And I don't say this lightly. Relying until now on good genes—and being lazy to boot—I wasn't looking forward to using a regimen of products, but I grew to love the structure of the routine. And the products are gorgeous. "Within just two to three weeks, I saw a huge improvement in my skin. I had never used a morning routine, mistakenly believing skin needed a few hours to absorb moisturizers. But the lightness of the La Crème Multi-Perfection hydrated my skin without greasiness, allowing me to use less concealer and foundation and rendering my lines—especially those annoying ones around the mouth—less noticeable. I realized I was now repairing my skin rather than having to apply more makeup to conceal its shortcom- ings. I was floored by the lightness of the products, and yet as soon as I applied them, I could feel them starting to work. I did not lose dark spots, but by week five, my skin definitely felt firmer and far less dry. "These days, makeup is less essential for me, as my skin is well hydrated and my tone is more even. I especially love Dream Skin, which I began to use as an around-the-eye brightener but now use all over. It's neither a tint nor a moistur- izer, and yet the dreamy lotion gives my face a radiant glow." key products le Sérum ($165 for 1 oz.) la Crème Multi-perfection ($165 for 2 oz.) le Sérum Yeux ($110 for 0.5 oz.)
