Darphin is a Luxury Treat For Your Skin and Senses

By Sheila Arkee

Ladies, when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of the beautification process, there is something special to be said about the intrinsic value of luxury skin care items. With our typically hectic lives, it’s easy to forget about treating ourselves with a little something special that not only benefits our skin but the rest of our senses as well.

One of my goals for 2012 is to take better care of myself. As a single mom, I not only have an obligation to my child, but I also have one to myself, to make sure that I stay well and do little things that add up to big benefits in the long run.

Darphin is a luxury skin care line from France that truly believes that caring for your skin is more than what it seems. As they say, it is “More than skincare, an art.” Since using their skin care, I can vouch for this and have come to love what their products have done for my skin and my sense of well-being.

First and foremost, let’s talk packaging. From the gorgeous outer packaging of seafoam green with gold accents, to their classic bottles, everything about Darphin speaks of their dedication to elegance.

I’m proud to report Darphin is not just about pretty packaging. Their products are wonderful, and since using them I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin.

The products I’ve been using lately are Darphin’s Age-Defying Lip Balm, Wrinkle Corrective Eye Contour Cream, Organic Rose Aromatic Care, Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water and Denblan toothpaste.

Darphin’s Age-Defying Lip Balm has a satin-matte, non-sticky formula that feels so good as a base for your lip products and as a night treatment. It smells amazing with scents of cedar, orange, and caiac wood essential oils. The key ingredients in this lovely balm are Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Rice Bran Wax, Rosemary and Sunflower Oils.

The Wrinkle Corrective Eye Contour is one of my new favorite eye creams.


It’s something you can use in the morning and night and helps to plump the eye area and promote natural cell renewal. It comes with a plastic scoop to prevent bacteria from coming into the cream.


My absolute favorite product is the Organic Rose Aromatic Care, which soothes your skin and smells so amazing you might want to use the entire bottle at once. You won’t have to, though. Just five dabs of the oil on your face at night helps to moisturize and soothe in an incredible way. I’ve been using it on top of my Retinol product and I wake up with a glow.

The Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water impressed me more than I thought was possible. It’s a non-oily face cleanser and make-up remover that removes all of my eye make-up. I was actually shocked that it worked! Just make sure not to saturate your cotton pad, you don’t need as much as you think.

The Denblan whitening toothpaste is my new favorite thing! I love fancy toothpaste and this one has such a different minty taste than other toothpastes on the market.

And here’s a treat for you all – I have Darphin products for one very lucky reader (valued at least $100). Just leave me a comment answering the question: What Darphin product would you like to try and why?

    I would want to try either the lip balm (addicted to lip balms) or the eye makeup remover. I’m using L’Oreal remover now and seriously….it’s just disappointing. I should really just go back to olive oil.

  • Marilyn Wons

    I would love to try the age defying lip balm. It sounds very gentle which I like.

    I have heard many YouTube gurus rave about the Darphin lip balm and have always wanted to try it! My lips and surrounding areas always seem to chap when I don’t have product with me.

    I also posted about this Sweepstakes on my Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/BrigidMcCabe/status/194467782962843648

    Thanks!

    oh, the eye cream!!! i give anesthesia, and the only thing my patients can see for any length of time are my eyes. if given only five minutes to get ready in the morning, “the eyes have it”, because that’s the way i communicate with my patient. the eyes are the window to the soul, after all…
