First introduced in 2014, Dior Dreamskin quickly became a global bestseller for its instant perfecting results and long-term nourishing effects. An advanced version followed in 2016, and now, after nearly 1,000 formula tests, the hero product has reached its third generation: Dior Dreamskin Care & Perfect. Featuring more gentle ingredients of natural origins, the improved formula utilizes mother-of-pearl for radiance, pigments for colour correction, and micro-powders for blurring, giving makeup-free skin a luminous finish. “For the past 10 to 12 years, we have been trying to better understand the optical features of the skin…This involves the skin architecture in terms of biology, but also neuroscience,” explains Edouard Mauvais-Jarvis, Dior’s environmental and scientific communications director. Using cutting-edge scientific advancements that act as an optical veil, Dior Dreamskin is effective immediately, showing improved outcomes after one week and long-lasting results after 28 days. According to Mauvais-Jarvis, the ultimate goal is skin that feels and looks healthy: “The biggest investment to make in life is in your health, to have what’s on the inside reflected on the outside.”

The soul of the scent is Egyptian jasmine, a perfect complement to the pear’s fresh sensuousness. Coeur Battant is available in refillable bottles that can be personalized, as well as a handy travel-sized version for touch-ups throughout the day or for packing in your carry-on.
