Christian Dior has many different products that range from perfumes to clothing, but not many people realize they have a large line of skin care products as well. Capture is a line of skin care products created to help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that have been caused by sun exposure or age. Dior Capture has many different products available and some of the more interesting ones are the Dior Capture R60/80 Wrinkle Eye Cream and the Dior Capture R60/80 XP Ultimate Wrinkle Restoring Creme.
The Dior Capture line claims to improve every aspect of your skin and features celebrity endorsements on the website by Sharon Stone and others. This is a high-end brand so you should expect to pay above average prices for most of the products. You can’t buy the products from the official website but many retailers carry them, and they can also be easily purchased through many online stores.
Dior Capture products use something known as the Alpha-Longoza Complex which is derived from a rare plant. Dior claims that this is the unique ingredient in their Capture products that combats aging. Dior Capture also contains Centuline which claims to activate a “longevity protein” that already exists inside your skin cells. These two ingredients are claimed combine to give your skin the best anti-aging and revitalizing effects possible.
The Dior Capture R60/80 XP Ultimate Wrinkle Restoring Creme is a moderately priced product that is supposed to show immediate results as it hydrates skin and eliminates wrinkles. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients.

The Bottom Line
Christian Dior is a name that people associate with high fashion, so it was only a matter of time before they delved into the anti-aging field. Dior Capture has a large selection of products available so if you are looking for something specifically for anti-aging, you will have to dig around a little bit. It’s unknown if the Alpha-Longoza complex is actually effective so you would be better off trying a sample or trying another product that does offer a free sample.
