Everyone knows that the most important step in your routine is adequate sun protection, and the repercussions of sun damage is something that we should all take very, very seriously. But I must admit, as the sort of person who likes their skincare routine to be as streamlined as possible, that extra step can be a bit of a niggle when I’m pushed for time in the morning.
Not for the past fortnight, though, because I’ve had a little skincare/suncare saviour at my disposal: Darphin’s evocatively named Soleil Plaisir Anti-Aging Suncare. Blending silky, hyaluronic acid-packed skincare with UVA/UVB sunscreens and a choice of SPF30 or SPF50 protection, it’s a one-step moisturising and protecting gem with major emphasis upon preserving the youthful capital of your skin.
Soleil Plaisir is Darphin’s first ever sun protection product, created for all those who want high factor sun protection with all of the benefits of their daily moisturiser. The formula has a rich infusion of karanja oil to nourish and smooth skin, together with that aforementioned ultra-plumping hyaluronic acid (music to the ears of skincare aficionados), which smoothes out fine lines and leaves skin glowing.
Sun protection formulas with a high SPF can sometimes be a little thick and unwieldily, but not so with Soleil Plaisir. Darphin approached the composition with pleasure of use in mind, ensuring that the texture – while definitely more of a cream than a lotion – glides across skin and melts in with ease. Its finish is dewy and fresh, and it makes a great base for makeup. And, as an added bonus, the white floral fragrance smells absolutely heavenly!
