Darphin Skincare pamper-time, ladies!

Hi ladies! I am SO excited to write about Darphin Skincare. Darphin used to be one of my advertisers when I worked for Pulse magazine — but that is neither here nor there, just a small world! I always wanted to try the products and finally got to do a little PinkLouLou skin pampering!

Darphin started in 1958 and revolutionized the aesthetic skin care industry by opening one of the first institutes in Paris for complete body, hair, and skin care solutions custom-tailored to specific, personal needs. The whole Darphin experience is one that suggests luxury, privilege and pleasure. The products that they picked out for my skin are the ideal resource cream, the arovita c serum, and the anti-fatigue smoothing eye gel.
Let’s break down each product:
Arovita C Line response firming serum

Your skin deserves its expert serum!
Arovita C helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and firms and re-energizes your skin’s youthful glow. Key ingredients include caffeine, kombucha, ligopeptide and vitamins C and E, just to name a few!
This product is ideal for someone experiencing the first signs of aging (aka, MOI!) and promises a renewed natural radiance, soothed and softer revived skin and a renewed feeling of comfort and suppleness.
I LOVE the way it smells. HEAVENLY! And I love the way it feels on my skin. I like to use it at night for a more intense treatment.

Ideal Resource Smoothing Retexturizing Radiance Cream

It’s a privileged moment between you and your skin!
Ideal Resource is a skin restoration cream scented with white flowers that provides a unique skin care experience. This combination cream helps to restore the skin’s natural collagen, revive complexion luminosity and reactivate natural cell renewal.
I use this product at night mainly, and I swear it feels like I just got a facial! It is extremely soft and the scent is to die for. I feel so pampered after using it, like I am really doing something fantastic for my skin.
Anti-Fatigue Smoothing Eye Gel

This product is light like a gel, and gentle like a cream. Scented with green tea, citrus and violet, and enhanced with caffeine for smooth, fresh eyes, this product is perfect for those who’d like to renew their eye area. In fact it’s ideal for those experiencing fatigue, dullness and fine lines around their eyes. And it has nourishing walnut extract combined with Vitamin C acid spheres.
Ummm, hi. I look at a computer screen all day. Of course I have eye fatigue. And sometimes I am up too late. 😉 This little baby has really helped with eye puffiness.
I can honestly say I LOVE every one of these products. The whole Darphin principle is based on total well-being, providing effective skincare and enhancing the pleasure principle. When you feel good, you LOOK good, people!
