I only used this on my undereye area in place of an eye cream. I will NOT risk using it on the rest of my face as I already have proper moisturizers, and a few of the ingredients are acne triggers. If you are oily or acne prone, steer clear of this product.

I have somewhat conflicting feelings on giving this cream a 2 lippie rating. On one hand... it definitely was not the worst one I've used. And on the other hand, people deserve to know. I think that when customers buy Dior skincare products, they automatically assume it'll preform miracles based off the price and brand. But that couldn't be further from the truth. It all comes down to the ingredient list.

This doesn't contain anything super beneficial for anti-aging benefits nor preventative care. Like so many of the big name brands out there, Dior Hydra Life Pro Youth Sorbet Cream is a gimmicky product full of fancy (useless) ingredients. To add insult to injury, the first 10+ ingredients listed are cheap fillers (IE alcohols, water, glycerin).

I liked that this kept my undereye area looking supple. and that it was easy to apply thinly. But that's about it. You could probably pick up better efficient products at Walgreens than this, for a fraction of the price.

Here is the ingredient list in case any of you want to be the judge: Water, Isononyl Isononanoate, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Pentylene Glycol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Steareth-2, Betaine, Alcohol, Steareth-21, Phenoxyethanol, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Decyloxazolidinone, Rosa Hybrid Flower Extract, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Dimethicone, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract, Dimethicone/Phenyl Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Laureth-7, Hydrolyzed Opuntia Ficus-Indica Flower Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Aluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ajuga Turkestanica Extract, BHT

It worked really well at first for me. But my skin started turning really dry because of the winter and it did not prove to be very moisturising. However, if you have normal or sensitive skin, I highly recommend it as it leaves you with a fresh and lightly scented face. It may not be worth the money to me but I can see why a lot of people may like it. I enjoyed while it lasted.

My skin is normal-to-dry but still sensitive and I break out easily. I used a sample of this for a few weeks and my skin was awesome the entire time. After that I couldn't go back to what I was using. I decided to buy it despite the steep price.

The formula feels great. It's very lightweight and the texture is between a gel and a cream, but it isn't greasy at all. It's the only moisturizer I've found that hydrates my skin without giving me blackheads or clogged pores. It's also scented, which normally I'm not crazy about but I don't mind. It's not overpowering and smells very fresh and clean. The packaging is pretty. I've read people complaining that the jar packaging is unhygienic, but it comes with a spatula and if you apply with clean hands I don't think it's a big deal.

This might not be a good moisturizer if you have very dry skin, but it works well with my sensitive, acne-prone skin.

I bought a jar about four months ago and have yet to run out. As expensive as it is, I think this is my HG moisturizer and I'll likely buy more once I use it up. Would definitely recommend.

This strikes me as totally average especially considering the price. I have combination acne prone skin so I need an intensely moisturizing product that will make my skin feel comfortable without oiliness or breakouts, it's a delicate balance.
Sorbet Cream has light consistency, subtle fresh scent, absorbs easily and doesn't irritate my skin. On the other hand I notice some oily residue for a few minutes, the provided hydration is average and doesn't leave my skin plump and comfortable.
Not bad but nothing special either. Might be suitable to people with no special skin needs who need a basic face cream but why would anyone sell this amount of cash for a completely average product?

It is expensive but you really get what you pay for - which in this case is a top quality moisturiser.
It's light, the scent is subtle and fresh and it absorbs quickly. There is no oily feeling residue like I get with Clinique or drug store moisturisers, nor does it make my face look greasy (that's a big issue I have with the oily parts of my combo skin)
My only gripe is that the glass packaging makes this too heavy to be portable.But still, this is only really an issue if you stay overnight somewhere as this cream leaves skin looking plumped up and fresh for the whole day.

I will throw in a comment from my mom, though. She loved the texture, smell etc of this cream but felt her "old skin" (her words, not mine!) needed something a bit richer.

My Skin Type:
Combo/Acne Prone
Sensitive to Silicones (definitely dimethicone and cyclomethicone), Jojoba Oil
Previous Moisturizer Used: Face Reality Hydrating Emlusion

I had just introduced Stridex AHA in a red box to my routine because my skin had been freaking out after coming off BCP and my PTR Max Complexion Pads at night just wasn't cutting it anymore. However, the combination of the Stridex and the cooler weather had shriveled up my normal combo oily skin. I felt like my face would crack after I just moved my face after applying the Stridex.

So instead of stopping the Stridex, I decided to go with a heavier moisturizer. I purchased this after reading a rave review about it on the SCB but panicked after seeing it was the same person who recommended it everytime. Regardless, I ordered it from Sephora during one of their F&F so I figured I would give it a shot.

The product itself is great. Very light and lives up to the sorbet name while still being very moisturizing. It makes me skin feels soft and hydrafted without feeling greasy and it absorbs quickly.

The packaging is a little annoying because it comes in a very heavy glass jar that you need to twist open. Yes it feels luxurious but apparently any antioxidant qualities get lost everytime you expose the product and I am not the best about washing the spatula that comes with it every time I use it.

Bottom line, I just purchased my second jar. The first one lasted me three months which is pretty expensive at $56 USD. I tried to purchase a moisturizer from Bare Escentuals with SPF since this one doesn't have any but it just didn't cut it. It may be too heavy for me once the summer comes around but until then, it's a staple I just can't live without. As someone who is very acne prone, once I find a product that works, it is hard to find the next best thing as the trial and error process is never an easy one.

It's ok, I'm giving 5 stars because I have no complaints but on the other hand this is the first moisturizer I try, oh wait I do have two minor complaints, it tastes awful (sometimes I taste it when I lick my lips, yuck) and if it goes into your eyes it burns like hell, I would try to apply it outside of the eye area but since I bought this cream especially for the skin around my eyes that gets very dry.. Idk man, I kind of have to apply it there.

Where do I begin?! Love this product, have tried almost every moisturizer out there without much luck. I like how it just seems to melt into my skin. Smells amazing and doesn't leave my face greasy like many moisturizers. I have repurchased this 3 times so as you can tell I do love it. A little goes a long way. Only downside is the price but hey once you find something that really works, it's worth it. Would definitely recommend this.

This stuff is so amazing I can't believe this is not as popular as it should be!
It smells light, fresh and luxurious. Its light enough not to be too much and hydrating enough throughout the day and when I've just put it on.
I have dry combination but in summer time in Queensland I get quite oily around my t-zone and I do get pimples and blackheads.
By the end of the day its doesn't feel like I've put grease on my skin and I don't get blackheads with this.

I really enjoy this luxurious product however not cheap so its my special product when I can buy this.
