Moisturizers -Darphin -Hydraskin Light


I've been repurchasing this cream over and over during the last 10 years. I have combo skin with a nasty t-zone. This moisturizer is perfect in winter an in summer at night. I sometimes switch to other moisturizers, but then when something happens (like... breakouts, greasy formulas sitting on top, strong or unpleasant smells, unsufficient moisturizing...you name it) I kick myself not having bought again the Hydraskin.
It is a simple but effective product. It's hydrating, not greasy at all, fast absorbing. Has a lovely, gentle smell.
What I define an elegant cream, that delivers and gives you a pampering moment.
My only con is the presence of silicones, that are there for binding in the water, but are a a little troublesome on my skin lately.
However it's a go-to product for hydration. Moderately priced at 44 euros a jar, it's still very affordable. Absolutely worth a try!

Moisturizers -Darphin -HydraSkin Rich All-Day Skin-Hydrating Cream

on 2/8/2018 8:17:00 AM


I have used pretty much every high-end product on the market by this cream is by far one of the best creams that I have ever used. The price is reasonable as well. What I like about it is that it is really moisturising and penetrates skin really well. This is my favourite cream for summer time. Also, it really calms down the skin and evens out skin tone.

Cleansers -Darphin -Intral Cleansing Milk

on 1/26/2018 5:51:00 AM


Within seconds of applying the Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk I had a strong allergic reaction. My skin started burning up and I developed a deep red, blotchy rash all over my face. My skin is dry, but not usually sensitive and I have no idea which ingredient (or combination) caused such a strong reaction. I had to take 2 different medications to stop the reaction, and even now, a week later, my skin is still rough and irritated. It was my first time trying Darphin as I’d heard good things about it, but never again. If you do want to try it, I’d strongly recommend doing a patch test on the inside of your arm to make sure that you don’t have a reaction as well.

Cleansers -Darphin -Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood

on 11/6/2017 11:06:00 AM


If you want to try a luxurious, wonderfully scented and remarkably effective cleanser, you would be hard-pressed to go awry with this one from Darphin. It is hideously expensive - $45 for a 40 ml pot. However, I have enjoyed using it so much, I have no doubt that I'll be buying more.
The balm is a kind of waxy cream texture. It smells like nothing else I've sniffed - an herbal, woodsy blend of marula oil, sage, ylang, and rosewood. The ingredients are nothing too magical; mostly, they are a blend of glycerin and oils that solidify at room temperature. I find that they combine to great effect, though. To use this, I scoop out a nickel-sized dab and rub between wet palms. You'll find it starts to emulsify immediately. I then massage all over my face. I use this as a second cleanser. It works as a first cleanser/make-up remover, but I have to use an amount that makes me shudder. As a second cleanser, it is lovely at picking up any stray oil cleanser that remains on my skin and making it feel perfectly clean and toned. No tightness, no irritation, no residue.

Cleansers -Darphin -Cleansing Foam Gel with Water Lily


Groan. First World Moan alert.

I got 125ml of this as a gift with purchase and I am wondering what to do with it. Will I use it to wash my make up brushes or woollen clothes? It seems gentle as it doesn't move much dirt off my face. I even tried to use it in the shower as a body cleanser and well, it just slid off my skin and slithered down the drain. In desperation I used it as a hand wash but again, my hands did not seem to get clean and I was chasing the gel goo around my 2 hands.

OK, foam gel- what does that even mean? This cleanser is a thick liquid goo that does not foam up that well. It is a very frustrating product- it doesnt leave your face feeling clean, nor overly clean- stripped, and so you wonder what you just spent your precious morning minute doing.

The marketing is good- the opaque goo along with the 'Water lily' is indeed a serene tube of product to look at. Just don't use it.
