Is one of your biggest winter bugbears dull, lacklustre skin? I hear you! Winter’s ability to make your complexion look drawn is a complaint as old as time. You can’t escape the harsh winds, frozen temperatures and central heating, but you can give your skin some armour against each of those mini attacks. And no, I’m not just talking about cocooning your skin in an emollient cream. I’m talking about defying the dullness and lighting your skin from within with a radiant, distinctly anti-winter glow.
A new recruit to the fight for radiance, Darphin Lumiere Essentielle combines powerful, brightening essential oils and silky-smooth textures that work to amp up luminosity whilst nourishing the skin.
It’s a lightbulb moment for your complexion!
Step 1: Liquid Energy
The first step in your quest for glowiness is the power-packed Darphin Lumiere Essentielle Illuminating Oil Serum. Now, you’d be forgiven for expecting its texture to be quite oily. Shelve that thought, though, because the serum is actually more of a fresh gel texture, which melts into a very lightweight oil as it warms onto the skin. It’s got an incredibly comfortable, barely-there finish with a lot of slip, which aids in a lovely, deep massage. It’s pretty much perfect for those who want all of the benefits of an oil, without that oily residue!
Aside from the texture, Darphin has another trick up its sleeve with this serum: its combination of energy-boosting orange, ginger root, rose and mandarin essential oils are encapsulated into little bubble-like beads, which burst when massaged into the skin. Each of these concentrated beads blends beautifully with the oil-gel base to deliver radiance and moisture. When massaged in, it provides a little jolt of instant energy that’ll get your skin glowing.
Step 2: Nurture The Glow
While the Lumiere Essential Illuminating Oil Serum is a bit like an energy drink for your skin, the Lumiere Essentielle Illuminating Oil Gel-Cream is more like a hot chocolate with marshmallows. It’s so exceptionally comforting! Its texture is cashmere-soft, enveloping your skin in a delicious, oil-rich gel-cream that instantly makes your complexion feel better balanced.
But make no mistake – the Gel-Cream still packs an energising punch! It contains the same blend of brightening essential oils as the Oil Serum (orange, ginger root, rose and mandarin), albeit in a slightly reduced concentration. The two products are created to be used in tandem, with the Serum offering the biggest shot of energy, and the Gel-Cream topping it up and providing a nourishing cocoon for the skin. Talk about a dream team.
