I don't know about you, but the cool months of the year do a number on my skin. My face becomes dry and I have to slather myself in moisturizer so that I feel like my pores can breathe again. It's like giving my face a big ole refreshing drink of water, and oh it feels so good.
I was recently sent some products from Darphin skincare to test and to help my thirsty skin and broaden my beauty horizons. I was not familiar with these products, but when I saw they hail from Paris I was eager to try them! Darphin products pride themselves on being "deliberately engineered to envelop the user in multi-dimensional, multi-sensory delight." And let me tell you, I was totally delighted!
I was given the Darphin Hydraskin Essential, the Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum and the Hydrating Kiwi Mask. I was very impressed upon receiving the products as they were packaged and presented in an elegant and beautiful manner. I could display these fancy little bottles all over my bathroom, I love them so much. I couldn't wait to slather this secret little potion all over my face and see if it made my skin feel as pretty as I thought it would based on the bottles. Guess what? It did!
The Hydraskin Essential moisturizer instantly refreshed my face. It boosts the natural hydration of the skin while replenishing moisture and helping protect skin from moisture loss. I felt everything that it boasts of doing, and my face felt good and fresh all day long. I applied a small amount to my face and neck in the morning and then another small amount before bed. After applying it to my face in the morning, I followed it with the Hydraskin Intesive Skin-Hydrating Serum. This stuff is serious business! A little goes a long way, and it gives an even richer feeling of hydration to your skin. It is amazing!
The Skin-Hydrating Serum helps with dehydrated, tight-feeling, dull-looking skin. It immediately hydrates skin cells and holds water retention in the skin for long-term hydration. I would buy this serum over and again it made my face feel so fresh and soft. When I went to apply makeup later that day, my foundation went on with ease without any dry spots holding me back. That is how I knew these products were working beautifully. I was impressed upon the first application of the first day. My results only got better as the weeks passed. My face feels softer and more hydrated than ever.
The most "fun" item I was sent was the Hydrating Kiwi Mask. Nothing is more relaxing than taking a bubble bath with a nice soothing face mask. All I needed were a few cucumber slices to complete the experience. This mask smells delightful (the best smelling of the three products), and it gave my face great results in instant smoothness and moisture. This isn't a product I would use daily, or as often as the moisturizer or serum, but it would act as a great splurge item for giving your face a special boost every now and then. I enjoyed it so much!
Darphin products are a luxury skincare line that started in 1958. After using their products, I am sold. Their tagline, "More than skincare, an Art" is absolutely true. I feel that these products are worth every bit of their cost, as they give what they promise. I am so glad I was introduced to this line, because it's definitely one of my new front-running favorites.
