I got the 75ml bottle as a gift from a friend last year. I've never used Dior products before so I wasn't what to expect, or how my skin would react to it. I use it once a day as a part of my nighttime skincare regime, and it has lasted me for a little over a year (still using this product as I'm writing this review).

While there are no obvious anti-aging or de-wrinkling effects, it has definitely made my skin brighter and more youthful-looking. This product goes well with different products (I use quite a lot of Japanese and Korean products), and there are no "side effects" or allergic reactions on my skin. The one thing I didn't like about this product is the smell. I'm on the fence when it comes to scented products since they tend to cause breakouts on my skin, but it hasn't cause any problems on my skin for the entire year.

However, I probably won't re-purchase this product in the future. Upon checking the prices, I discovered it's quite expensive, and WAY out of my budget. Though I probably shouldn't be surprised, since it's Dior we're talking about. Overall, this is a very nice serum that works well for all seasons.

I got a pretty generous sample with a Dior purchase, and I was told that the point of this serum is to detoxify my skin and make the absorption of other creams/serums more efficient. I`ve tried for 1.5 weeks now, but I am not impressed: my skin looks nice in the morning (I do not use other creams, just this serum), not too oily, not overly moisturized, but...the perfume bothers me. And two days into it I broke out (not severely, but it`s rare for me to experience cystic breakouts) on my nose, so will not be purchasing this.

This serum is a godsend. I was given this product at a training and I noticed a difference overnight with this. I get the occasional cystic breakout and have a lot of redness and irritation in my skin. I noticed the texture of my skin changing and the redness was greatly reduced. This serum has a super light texture and more of a stop effect when I felt my skin (being oily I need this) so I can wear it alone or with my normal moisturizer under makeup. I fell off the wagon using it and started using it again with the new Dior a Prestige moisturizer and it's a winning combination. I will recommend this serum to anyone with my skin problems.

This stuff broke me out like crazy! I did love the texture and it definitely minimized the appearance of my pores, but I got a serious break out AND it felt like I was putting perfume all over my face.

$100 USD for 30ml. My SA kept pushing this product hard so I gave in and tried it. After using it up, I'm just not sure what the big deal is - the SA's must be getting some extra commission to push this. Normally, I love Dior skincare products, but I just don't understand what this serum is supposed to do. After about 6 weeks of using it, the only thing I noticed for my skin was how much extra moisturizer I needed on top of my skin. As another reviewer mentioned, there's a lot of alcohol in this, so it makes sense that the product actually dried me up (which I DO NOT NEED in the middle of a very cold, drying winter). Stay away, and if you absolutely must try it out, ask for samples (which I really should have done).

Got this as a free sample and have tried at night only. After two nights it's making me break out so it's going in the trash. Staying with my Philosophy Clear Days Ahead.

Shockingly expensive serum with no "wow" ingredients other than copious amounts of alcohol- that's what you're paying for. I was impressed by how flawless my skin looks with this treatment. But after I learnt that alcohol was one of the main ingredients, I decided I'd never buy it because basically its a gimmicky product in which the alcohol gives the appearance of flawlessness. Sorry ladies! Short term effects may be lovely but I'm concerned about longterm usage on my sensitive skin. Thank goodness I'd only used a sample!

Yes, it's hydrating... But that's about it. No visible differences in dark circles or fine lines. Smells nice. Not good for value. They spent too much on the bottle for this one... My secret weapon is "teamine" eye cream for dark circles..

I don't understand the number of positive reviews at all. This is the worst serum I have ever used, and one of the most expensive. It made my skin extremely dry, and after a week it landed in the trash. Later I recognized that alcohol is the fourth ingredient. It's a miracle for me how so many people can feel benefits.

This is my n bottle of this serum. I have used Dior since 2007 as this is the only brand suits to my crazy skin type (combination and super sensitive). I cant use any other brand otherwise will get allergic and pimples a lot. I have used this serum for long times and I cant remember how many bottles I have bought. I always bought the biggest size which costs around $300 nzd. Its crazy ! However as I cant use any other brand so I have to go for it.

I truly don't think it gives my skin any significant improvement. My skin still got few pimples , ance prone and fine lines appeared recently that make me so headache and upset. The truth is my skin is fine not really bad, but i cant never have a flawless skin like I wish.

I use this serum in the morning and before go to bed every day. According to its crazy price, I dont think its worth to continue to buy it again. I think DIOR is not suit to my skin anymore.

I heard people said you cant use one brand of skin care every 6 months? Other said you have to mix different brand for your skin car products? as I only used DIOR for skin care products and make up for ages.

I now think I have to switch to other brands, especially the serum which is very important. Its such a nightmare for me to find the right products. [Sigh]
