Hello skincare junkies,
London today is looking gloomy and rainy so I wanted to uplift you all with a product that my skin and my nose love: Darphin 8-flower nectar.
I have to be honest here, I am not a big fan of the so-called ‘natural’ skincare brands as I often find too many essential oils or plant extracts tend to either irritate my skin or do nothing at all. So I was a little bit skeptical when I purchased this elixir but the reviews seemed great so I thought I would give it a try, even though the price is quite up there as it retails for £98.
This is a night-time face treatment infused with 8 different essential oils: iris, jasmine, lavender, neroli, patchouli, rose, ylang-ylang and everlasting.They work in synergy to improve hydration, elasticity and fine lines.
I have been using it for several weeks now, alternating it with my Dr. Sebagh rose de vie serum, and my skin just adores this oil and the smell is intoxication( Darphin recommends taking a few drops on your hands, breathing in the aroma and then applying it on the face)…I look forward to my evening routine just to breathe it in.
In terms of hydration, this oil is very nourishing, non-comedogenic and of 99% natural origin(whatever that means).I sometimes add one drop to my foundation to give my skin that beautiful dewy effect and it does work wonders.
Bear in mind this oil contains lavender which can be problematic for some skin types.If you have normal to dry skin and are concerned with dryness, lackluster skin, fine lines and want an overall glow I bet you will love this product.
Let me know in the comments below your thoughts and experience with the 8-flower nectar.
