If you are a fan of roses, then you should check out Dior Prestige La Crème as it's heavenly rose scented! :D
Dior Prestige La Crème smells obviously rose-scented, but it feels very soothing. I personally would enjoy it even more if they brought out a body cream version of this :3. The scent isn't overpowering, yet it smells delicate, which is something that I would enjoy especially after a relaxing bath. Having said that, Dior Prestige cream is quite high in phenoxyethanol and fragrance, so you would still want to make sure that you don't have sensitivity towards those.
Dior Prestige La Crème Texture Essentielle at first seems just like a generic cream texture; creamy and universal.
It goes onto skin very smooth and absorbs fast, which made me think for a moment that the texture of the cream might work well for combination skin.
However, the hidden surprise awaits there. As I massage the cream in, the consistency then turns into more like an oil-infused cream.
It indeed fascinates me as the finish of the cream doesn't feel that heavy or rich onto skin compared to other brands, yet it still gives that impeccable dewy glow and suppleness to skin.
Its prodigious, unbelievably fine and luxurious texture fuses with the skin and envelops it in absolute comfort. Trapping the Nectar's active ingredients at the heart of the skin, it regenerates and helps rebuild a regular cellular architecture for skin perfection. Upon the first application, the skin feels and looks visibly transformed. Day after day, it is smoother. Its texture is refined and more even. Its radiance is deeply regenerated. Discover the exquisite sensation of rose-petal skin beneath your fingertips.

I personally think that Dior Prestige La Crème Texture Essentielle was created with make-up in mind, which doesn't surprise me as Dior has their own extensive range of make-up products. Dior Prestige cream will work very well for those who want that beautiful glow as a base with or without any make-up on. As the cream comes in two different textures, I've found the cream in Texture Essentielle works fine for my dehydrated normal skin in colder seasons. Meaning, those with oily/combination skin may find the cream still heavy and rich, which will make skin more prone to breakouts. Speaking of breakouts, if your skin doesn't get along very well with shea butter, then you might want to pass although the cream didn't give me any sensitivities so far.
I wouldn't say that Dior Prestige La Crème is sensitive skin friendly, but if your skin doesn't have allergies in general, then it will probably work fine. I haven't seen any lifting or firming effects, but I've noticed that my skin heals a lot faster even after popping pimples >_<. Although it contains shea butter, it doesn't give that thick masking feel to skin, so the cream is actually more workable even as a tinted moisturiser by mixing a few drops of foundation in it. It works well with different formulas of sunscreens without peeling as the cream doesn't leave any veil on top. Definitely, Dior Prestige La Crème will work great for those who want to maintain their youthful skin and/or those who want to have more versatility in anti-aging cream :).
