Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Silk Creme – review

I really like Dior cosmetics, both skincare and make-up. I think that they put a real effort to make a great packaging as well as good content. This was my first moisturiser from Dior and I really like it. I’m not going to say that it’s something I can’t live without, or that it changed my skin, but it really is a great moisturiser. It’s not a great anti-ageing product and it doesn’t give a great boost of exceptional ingredients, but it does the job as a moisturiser really well.


The packaging is truly beautiful. Very impractical as it’s heavy and glass, but looks gorgeous on the shelf. For travelling I would definitely take a small amount into some plastic travel container.

It smells very nice, reminds me of mango a bit, but the smell is very subtle and not overwhelming.


There are three key ingredients:

Jisten to boost moisture

Mallow to stimulate renewal of epidermal cells

Centella to activate synthesis of collagen in the dermis

I can also see some Hyaluronic Acid and silicones.

The formula is quite rich and thick as for a cream. For me it’s a perfect option for winter time, when I need a bit more moisture and some kind of protection against wind and frost. It can also be a great choice for a night time. I really like how the cream spreads gently on my face. It needs a bit of time to absorb before I can put on make-up, however make-up does apply on it really nicely.

My skin used to be combination/oily but after pregnancy I turned more dry and I even developed some eczema patches on my skin. This cream has definitely helped me restore moisture in my skin and I used it confidently on my eczema patches.

I would recommend it for dry and very dry skin. It’s not for combination/oily, as it’s too heavy and might not absorb that well. There are two other options within Hydra Life range and I think that Hydra Life Sorbet might be better option for combination skin.


I have to admit, that Dior does not make it easy to find full ingredients list, but I managed to find it on Sephora website:

Aqua (Water), Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Steareth-2, Pentylene Glycol, Steareth-21, Polyglycerin-3, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Betaine, Phenoxyehtanol, Dimethicone, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Decyloxazolidinone, Rosa Hybrid Flower Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum (Fragance), Tetrasodium Edta, Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sorbitol, Sodium Hydroxide, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Algin, Hydrolyzed Opuntia Ficus-Indica Flower Extract, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Cellulose Gum, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ajuga Turkestanica Extract, BHT.

It cost £42 and it’s quite an expensive cream, but great for anyone on the dry side, if it’s in your budget.

Will I repurchase? Maybe at some point, but there is a lot of nice creams that I want to try and test first.
