In 1958, Pierre Darphin was one of the Paris beauty industry’s main players. Something of a perfectionist, the kinesiotherapist used the finest ingredients to craft products that obeyed the subtle laws of physics and chemistry, yet still managed to capture the essence of femininity. With two worlds naturally colliding, Darphin the brand was born.
Today, that relentless attention to detail is still at the heart of the luxury skin care company, and that is exceptionally true with its Lumière Essentielle Illuminating Oil Gel-Cream.
Enriched with citrus, floral, cedarwood, and ginger essential oils to help hydrate and soften the skin, the product leaves a delicate botanical aroma floating in the air, an added enchantment to morning and evening routines. Put a pearl-sized amount of the cream in one palm and then gently rub hands together; with body heat, the gel transforms into an oil. As it is all about details in the world of Darphin, application is of utmost importance. To ensure the product soaks into the skin, a massage technique should be used. With slight pressure, sweep the cream over the face, neck, and décolleté, working upwards in a lifting motion. From cheeks to hairline, this rhythmic process allows for hyaluronic moisture to sink in.
While there are a lot of empty promises in the beauty market, this product really works. Rapidly upon use, a vibrant glow washes over the skin, and supple cheeks start to glisten. Perfect for a broad range of skin types, including oily, acne-prone, and combination, the lightweight hydrating gel will keep sun-scorched faces dewy throughout summertime heat waves. And with 82 per cent of the ingredients being naturally-derived, skin worshippers do not need to worry about clogged pores.
There’s a certain je ne sais quoi in Darphin’s line of French-made products. They reflect the high standards of the Parisian lifestyle, bottled up in perfect jars.
