Review: Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Eye Creme

It's been a while since my last review post. And I know a lot of you guys are expecting the Dior Pro-Youth Sorbet Eye Creme review. So finally here it is.

After the unsatisfied experience with Dior Protective Fluid, I didn't give up on the line. I went back and got the Sorbet Eye Creme and Sorbet Creme.


The outside packaging looks like this. All the Dior Hydra life line has very similar design, clean and simple.


For safety purpose the box is plastic wrapped and sealed.


A little background information about Dior Gardens and the product.

At the heart of protected sites that respect mankind and nature, the Dior Innovation Center selects plant resources with amazing benefits. Dior Extracts their purest part, enriches it and uses it to heighten the effectiveness of Hydra Life Skincare.


Beyond hydration: youthfulness for the skin

At the heart of the Dior Gardens blossoms the secret of new, intense hydration that helps to actively preserve youthfulness by diffusing moisture.

Dior Innovation: Hydra Life combines 3 pure plant extracts derived from these gardens - Jisten, Centella and Black Rose - to offer the skin all the benefits of the Cellular Bio-Exaltation.

Results: TO THE SIGHT, the eye contour looks spectacularly smoothed and luminous. TO THE TOUCH, the skin texture is reinforced to delay the appearance of puffiness. AS FOR THE EXPERIENCE, the skin feels immediately fresh.

Fresh texture - anti-puffiness and dark circle action



Upon opening the outside packaging, a sturdy glass jar is revealed. It's very beautiful and heavy. There's another foil seal under the lid. I really appreciate Dior's double safety design. It's always good to know that I bought something which is unused and untouched.


There's a white cap with a handle under the foil seal. The eye cream also comes with a scooper. Again very thoughtful designs.


Finally the eye cream itself looks like this. The texture is very light and fluffy. It feels more like a gel than a cream. Unlike the old HydrAction eye cream, the new version is a lot thinner and less opaque.


What I like about it after using for almost 2 months:

The packaging! A glass jar in light blue-ish green color really hits me on the spot. I guess that could be the reason I went back to give this a try after not liking the Protective Fluid. 

The scent! Its light floral scent is very pleasant and refreshing. It's not over powering at all. Too much fragrance around eye area could easily irritate the eyes. It doesn't have the bitter taste like the Protective Fluid either. It's very gentle and even has a slight cooling effect.

The pricing! This eye cream only sells for $49 plus tax. Hello it's eye cream and it's Dior. Any good eye cream can go above a hundred bucks. But this one is so affordable. It's even cheaper than most of the other products in the same line.

The texture! It's very light and fast absorbing. It's also hydrating and long lasting. I can feel my eye area being hydrated for hours. Even during summer season, it doesn't get greasy.

What it's lacking:

I wouldn't call it something I don't like. But I guess the Hydra Life line is mainly designed for younger people who doesn't need anti-aging just yet. I feel like the cream addresses hydrating part pretty well but other than that, it doesn't help with firming and dark circle like the richer eye creams, for example Cle De Peau Eye Contour Balm.

Conclusion:

After all I still like this eye cream. It's good for me for now. I recommend it to someone who just needs a hydrating eye cream. If you want something more for your dark circle or even wrinkles, better look somewhere else.


p.s. All the photos except the last one were taken in early May. Last photo was taken on June 29.
