My Summer Skincare Routine With Darphin


The older I am getting the more I have come to realise just how important it is to look after your skin, and Paris is very well known for producing the most amazing skincare products. You just have to look at all the French woman; their skin is super envious! So when Darphin contacted me and sent me these products, I was super thrilled as I have been a huge fan since I came across them during my time in Paris. The Las Vegas laser skin care fromTouch Up Laser is where you can go to get a glow up.

I’ve tried their Redness Relief Soothing Serum before but I’ve never tried these products before, so they are all new to me. I’ve spent over a week using them in the morning and just before bed time as part of my new summer regime.

First, I tried the cleansing balm, and I’m not usually a big fan of cleansing balms if I’m honest, but this one totally exceeded my expectations! This balm (here) smells incredible (think rosewood kinda smell) like most of Darphin’s products, and it’s not over powering which is a bonus! This divine balm was easy to use. Simply wash your face and just like magic, it transforms water into a silky but non oily milk that has left my skin feeling super clean with a subtle fresh glow!


“Using the Darphin products is like bringing the spa to my very own home and not to mention

the smell is super beautiful on each product!”


Now I use a lot of serum, so I was super excited to give this a go. Following on from the balm, I would use the Hydraskin Serum (here). I found that whilst using it, it left my skin feeling incredibly refreshed after each try. After using it for just over a week, I felt like my skin had restored it’s radiance and glow, which makes me a happy girl.




Next up is the Hydraskin Light Gel Cream (here). It’s a super lightweight cream, that helps soothe and replenish dehydrated skin. This cream is ideal for normal to oily skin and I found after using it for a week it didn’t clog up my pores, wasn’t oily and most importantly it hydrated my skin. My skin felt super plumped and instead of its kind of dewy look (lately due to lack of sleep from mum life!) it left me feeling fresh faced and I felt good for it! Darphin also sent me the Chamomile Aromatic Care which is an essential step in my summer routine. This oil helps to soften as well as soothe the skin by clarifying the complexion. It also smells sooooo good, guys.

Lastly is the Revitalising Oil (here) and the best thing about this product, is that it’s totally multi-purpose guys! You can use it for your hair, face and body. I tried this in my hair and I found it tamed my frizzy hair on top but I found it most beneficial on my body as opposed to my face and left me with a sense of well-being and an all round goodness!

I have been super impressed with every one of these products. They have left me feeling much more confident in my own skin and after following all these steps (in the order above) my skin feels so much better — it’s the only skincare product I will be using this summer! If you want to try the products yourself and bring a little bit of Paris home with you, Darphin are giving my readers 15% off with code “liveparisian”.

    Love these pictures sweetie. I suffer with quite bad acne and wondered if these would help my skin?

    Trying to find the right product for my skin is so hard, and I would love to give these a go depending on my skin?

    Would you recommend for oily and acne prone skin?
