I have dry/sensitive/dehydrated skin and am always on the lookout for good skincare products to help combats these problems. It's not that often that I repurchase a moisturiser because I'm always on the look out for the next best thing, but just recently I repurchased Darphin Ideal Resource Smoothing Retexturizing Radiance Cream because it has really impressed me. I have been using the Ideal Resource night cream since last summer and it is a firm favourite so I guessed I would like the day cream too & decide to take a chance on it a few months ago.
This pot is quite heavy so it wouldn't be great for anybody who travels quite a lot, but that isn't a concern of mine! It also comes with a spatula for hygiene purposes, but I find it great to make sure I don't use too much product because I can tend to be quite heavy-handed with moisturisers. The cream itself is actually quite lightweight, which is surprising given out moisturising it is. It certainly lives up to the smoothing and radiance decsription in the title because my skin is very smooth to touch after using this and it does add radiance too. I think the retexturizing element is more difficult to quantify because it is something that doesn't happen instantly and I don't actually have any wrinkles yet but my dehydration lines on my forehead are less visible since I started using this cream
The cream absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave any film on the skin, but it also doesn't just disappear taking hydration with it. The skin is left very moisturised and ready for make-up. I often have make-up free days at home and my skin remains hydrated throughout the day, which I really like.
It is an expensive moisturiser, costing over €70 but being in my 30s, I think it is important to invest in good skincare products. It is suitable for normal and dry skin types and I think anybody from 30 upwards could use and benefit from this cream. I have found two products I love with this and the matching night cream, so would love to try more products from the Darphin Ideal Resource range. I know I'll be repurchasing this again!
Have you tried any Darphin products? What is your current favourite day cream?
