Dior Beauty’s Capture Totale Super Potent Serum is clean skincare with an efficacious twist. We put it through its paces below.
Any skincare enthusiast will be well-versed in the benefits of serum. Sure, moisturisers and cleansers are a beautiful way to bookend your routine, but more often that not, it’s this middle step that does most of the heavy lifting. For one, they’re loaded with nourishing ingredients. The texture plays a part too – serums are typically thinner and formulated for maximum absorption (thus, tangible results).

Dior’s Capture Totale Super Potent Serum is iconic as far as the category goes. Backed by 20 years of laboratory research, it places focus on cellular energy, or lack thereof as we age. The hero ingredient is Longoza cultivated from the Dior garden in Madagascar – an extremeophile flower known for its regenerative properties. In terms of skin, it’s said to revitalise the source of vitality within the skin cells, resulting in a brighter, healthier complexion.
Personally, I was drawn to the product’s promise of better skin in seven days. As a beauty editor, I know skincare is a long haul game, so a week turnaround felt like a revelation. On first impression, the texture is divine – silky smooth but quickly absorbed. I pressed it in post-cleanse and pre-moistursier of an evening (because it gently resurfaces I opted for nighttime use, but the product is appropriate for day, night or both). Immediately, my skin felt super bright and plump thanks to the inclusion of hyaluronic acid, a molecule that binds water to cells.
Fast forward the seven days, I was impressed (and I’ve tried a lot of serums). The Super Potent Serum contains a gentle AHA with what’s called a penetration vector to ensure the product is taken deeper into the skin. AHA’s are great for surface exfoliation, so I found my dark spots had faded slightly and my skin tone looked energised… as if I’d had a few extra hours sleep (I hadn’t). If you suffer from fine lines, this will help with that as well.
But despite the exfoliation, I found it quite comforting – there was no “tingle” as there is with other accelerating acids. My thoughts are that this has something to do with the formulation – it’s actually made up of 91 per cent natural origin (including the aforementioned Madagascan Longoza extract). Overall, it’s an amazing do-it-all product all whilst maintaining that luxurious aesthetic and experiential element Dior Beauty is known for.
I’m sure there’s more to come as time progresses, but I can certainly say the icon status is warranted (even in a week).
Read the rest of team GRAZIA’s thoughts on the new Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Serum:
“As someone with a simple skincare routine, the Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Serum is a seamless addition to my bathroom vanity, albeit, with maximum results. I find the natural ingredients are kind on my sensitive skin, but certainly a little pump of product goes a long way if you’re on the more oily side.
After applying at night, I have found that I wake with a visibly brighter and more glowing complexion which lasts throughout the day, and even under makeup.” – Rebekah Clarke, Features Writer
