The texture of the Givenchy moisturizer is slightly thinner than the Dior one, though it doesnt run in your palm or on your face, but it feels like there's more moisture in it than in the Dior one! I also have to say that I prefer the scent of the Givenchy moisturizer over the Dior one as well. In terms of application, I'd say that they are very similar, in the sense that they absorb quickly, and they do feel nice, but the Givenchy feels nicer I'd say, especially on the cheeks.
I was prejudiced at first, thinking that my Dior Hydra Life moisturizer was better for my skin especially because I have a t zone which is not perfect, and I really liked how my t zone felt while I was using the Dior one. But despite the prejudices, Givenchy won me over rather quickly, and I an very content with this moisturizer. However there are a couple more moisturizers I'd like to try before I decide to commit and buy the Givenchy moisturizer, like the Dior Hydra Life Energizing Moisturizer, and the Dior Skin Perfect Pore Refining moisturizer, Guerlain Super Aqua Day Refreshing Cream, and I am still reading about a few other moisturizers as well.
Well, overall, I'd have to say that the Givenchy moisturizer is a lot better for my combination skin, it delivers enough moisture to keep my cheeks nice and hydrated, while keeping my t zone matte and never greasy! So far, if I do not discover a better moisturizer, I will be purchasing this moisturizer, definitely!
