The Darphin Overnight Refining Lotion is a skincare product specially developed for overnight use to improve your complexion and give you smoother, healthier skin overall. It is designed to unclog pores, reduce the appearances of blemishes and purify your skin. As is mentioned in the name; it REFINES your skin to the highest possible standard. It is a great product for oily skin and in general and I really like using it!
The one downfall is that at £22.00 online for a 15ml tube it is quite pricey, and not the best value for money. It is however worth the price, and I would definitely budget for it as it is invaluably good.
I first started using it a couple of weeks ago as I saw it in the skincare section of my local beauty shop and wanted to give it a go. I have used a few products by Darphin before and find them to be an excellent brand, but I had never used overnight based products before and was keen to see the results.
The ingredients featured were what really caught my eye at first, as they were all naturally based and from experience, smell and feel lovely on your skin. Isolutrol, Lavendar, Sage and Lemon Essential oils are the fantastic formulas responsible for clarifying and beautifying your skin in the best ways, and there is also an extract of Witch Hazel. The product has a lovely aroma due to these, and the texture of it is smooth and light. It has no parabens, and is 90% natural. The product has been dermatologically tested and is non-comedogenic also, making it very kind to your skin.
The packaging is small and fits neatly on my vanity shelf without much hassle. It is easy to squeeze to get the lotion out, and is high quality with no chance of product leakage. The design is simple and looks professional.
The instructions I read when googling the product to see further explanation of it's use were to apply to oily areas of your face in the evening, basically your T-zone (forehead, nose) and chin. It dries fairly quickly and doesn't feel heavy or greasy on your face. I went to sleep a few minutes after applying it and found my skin didn't feel as oily when I woke up. I was pleased, but didn't see proper results until a few weeks of use. My skin looked so much clearer, healthier and my pores weren't as prominent. I had a glow to my skin and looked much better overall!
I would expect nothing less of Darphin but I really liked the product and was pleased that it worked.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone with oily skin and will 110% be purchasing it again for myself in future!
