Today I’ll tell you about my acquaintance with four means for sensitive skin from the Darphin Sensitive Skin Expert Program.
The kit includes:
1. Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk with Chamomile
2. Darphin Intral Toner with Chamomile
3. Darphin Intral Redness relief soothing serum
4. Darphin Intral Soothing cream - intolerant skin
For some reason, I never came across samplers of this brand, but I wanted to get acquainted with the means popular at the Beautician. The travel kit in cosmetic bags became a find, and I briefly cheated on my permanent care products from Estee Lauder and Clarins.
The cosmetic bag itself is without any frills, transparent, dense, with pink lightning and a pink ribbon.
To fasten and unfasten a ribbon is not very convenient and not very practical.
Intral series is designed for sensitive skin prone to irritation and redness. Redness, as you know, can have a different nature (these are dilated vessels, and inflammation, and many other dermatological problems), so I was somewhat skeptical of such universal care, for myself I defined it as simply taking care of sensitive skin. And I did it right, because my slight pinkishness in the area of the nasolabial folds and chin has not changed in any way from this departure.
I used the kit in the summer when my skin is normal with an oily T-zone.
1. Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk with Chamomile Chamomile Cleansing Milk
(hereinafter a picture of the full version of the tool from the manufacturer’s website)
Makeup remover milk in soft pink with a nice texture. This texture of cosmetic milk (similar to liquid sour cream) seems to me the most successful - it is not too dense, but also not watery (which are milk from inexpensive brands). The texture reminds me of one of my favorite Clarins Cleansing Milk With Alpine Herbs products. Makeup is removed well. After milk, I usually wipe my face with Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1 lotion. The cotton pad with lotion remains almost without any tint, i.e. milk cleanses by 95%. I didn’t try to wash off my eyes with milk (I prefer special washes), but it’s not intended for this. The remedy would deserve a solid 5, if not for its sugary smell. This fragrance is used by fans in the whole series, but for some reason the aroma in milk and tonic is especially strong. Therefore, the rating: 4
2. Darphin Intral Toner with Chamomile Chamomile Toner
The tonic has a strange consistency - it seems to be a little soapy. Not as soapy as Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion (lotion without a number from a series of lotions of a three-stage system), but you won’t get a squeak of skin either. I usually use tonics in the morning before applying a moisturizer or sometimes during the day when the skin wants freshness. After this, the tonic of freshness is not felt, rather it is just a cleansing lotion, not a tonic. But after it, in some cases, you can not apply the cream - for example, I did this on hot days (I applied powder immediately after it) or when I didn’t leave home and didn’t do makeup. Although this remedy did not replace the tonic for me, but I would like to have something similar on the care shelf. I can’t buy this particular instance in the full version - because of the strong aroma mentioned above, but you can watch Darphin “tonics” from other series. Rating: 4.
3. Darphin Intral Redness relief soothing serum Soothing Anti-Redness Serum
I liked this tool the most from this quartet. Serum is a clear vodka, very thin. Even the tonic is more viscous than her. The consistency is closer to the Clarins Hydra Quench serum and is completely different from the thick Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I had to adapt myself so that it would not leak through my fingers. On the face, the serum lies very nicely. It even seems to me that it refreshes the skin a little. In the summer, I often used it alone (after tonic), without cream. Due to its texture, it absorbs very quickly, spreads well over the face. At a lower temperature, used for cream. Any cream falls on it, too, without problems (used with the fourth component of the Darphin Intral Soothing cream kit, as well as with the Estee Lauder Day Wear Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme). The product is pleasant, but in addition to good hydration and a slight improvement in skin tone, it does not give anything. Therefore, I will remain faithful to Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair from serums, which noticeably removes inflammation (when it happens) and moisturizes and evens out skin tone much better even in cold winter.
4. Darphin Intral Soothing cream - intolerant skin
This cream left a conflicting impression. Its aroma differs from the dislike of the three above-described remedies. Here it is a neutral chemical. The texture immediately disappoints - the cream is very silicone. On an insufficiently dried face (as well as on an incompletely absorbed serum or tonic) it lays poorly (by divorce and is absorbed for a long time). On dry skin, it behaves much better, even pleasantly moisturizes and mattifies. However, if you find yourself in a hot room shortly after applying the cream, you get a feeling of a mask or even rather a plastic bag on your face. Probably the case is the glycerin contained in the cream. He is not afraid of heat and stuffiness, only if the cream is well absorbed (for at least an hour). The only merit of this cream was the narrowing of pores for me. However, I suspect that this is the merit of silicones. I get a similar effect from the use of Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizer Skin Refinisher serum, which, unlike this cream, has no drawbacks for me. Rating: 3.
Conclusion: these specific funds did not arouse the desire to buy the full versions, but interest in the brand remained, and on occasion I will look at its other series.
