First let's start with a quick overview of the Dior Capture Totale science:
THE NEW CAPTURE TOTALE:
A PROFOUND BEAUTY REVOLUTION
FOR THE 1ST TIME AT DIOR, AN ANTI-AGEING TREATMENT THAT TARGETS THE DEEPEST STEM CELLS, IN WHICH SKIN DENSITY AND SUPPORT ORIGINATE
In 2013, Dior has gained even more knowledge on stem cells. For the 1st time, a new population of stem cells with extraordinary powers of regeneration has been brought to light: hypodermic stem cells.
These cells are the starting point for the biological lines, defined as "biological seams", that cross the skin from the deepest layer to the surface. But with time, these seams, or chains, composed of millions of cells that structure the global youth of a face, become deformed and break. The face then loses its ideal lines.
Thanks to this unprecedented breakthrough, CAPTURE TOTALE treatments recreate a solid foundation for the skin under the impetus of these hypodermic stem cells. The face is once again graced with dense, structured skin and perfect support.
REVOLUTIONARY AND UNRIVALLED STEM CELL EXPERTISE AT DIOR
For the past ten years, the Dior Science has continued to push the limits of its knowledge of stem cells, these rare and precious cells with unlimited regenerative powers.
In 2008, the fundamental role of stem cells in epidermal cellular renewal was brought to light.
In 2011, the Dior Science team revealed that epidermal stem cells transmit cellular messengers. Their sphere of beneficial influence extends to all neighbouring cells including those of the dermis. Beneath their influence, the skin produces more matter (keratin, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid).
Today, CAPTURE TOTALE has gone even further and has, for the 1st time, brought to light the key role of a new population of stem cells with extraordinary regenerative powers: hypodermic stem cells. From the deepest level of the skin, these cells create a foundation that allows for the construction of dense, perfectly structured skin.
CAPTURE TOTALE PROVIDES GLOBAL ACTION ACROSS THE SKIN, FROM THE DEEPEST LAYERS, TO THE SURFACE
The product has a pale beigy pink shade, and it blends perfectly into my skintone, with a slight brightening effect. I also noticed that it makes my skin look smoother. It is very comfortable to wear, and I do enjoy the light creamy texture. I tried applying it with my fingers, but prefer to use a brush to blend it into my skin.
Here you can see how the product blends out.
Applying the base -
I got to apologise for the lighting in these pictures, the camera was somehow washing me out in every pic even though I didn't change anything in terms of the setting and my photo-taking location.
Another extreme close up -- this is taken after lunch, and a walk in the HOT SUN - I must say, the base is pretty powerful in offering sun protection, and I can certainly do with the anti-aging and anti-dark spots properties.
Everything else on the face is Dior - the Diorsnow concealer, Bronzer in Aurora, and worn off lipstick in Incognito.
I hope this has been helpful, and thank you for reading!
