It's a well known fact and for those of you who read my blog regularly you'll know that I have super dry skin, it's the bane of my life and I have tried so many different skin care products over the years especially moisturisers but one moisturiser I always go back to and especially when my skin is at it's worst is the Darphin Hydraskin Rich moisturiser.
I first tried hydraskin rich around 4 years ago and I loved it immediately, at the time my skin was the worst it had ever been and the hydraskin rich really helped, I also love the Darphin Hydraskin Light and I use that when my skin isn't at it's driest but is still dry, to be fair my skin is never anything but dry unfortunately!
Over the last few months I've been having problems with my skin and it has been exceptionally dry so I reached for my old favourite the hydraskin rich.
Everything about the hydraskin rich feels luxurious, from the glass pot it comes in to the actual product itself, I love that it comes with a plastic spatula so I can use the moisturiser without dipping my fingers in and out of the product all the time which is a lot more hygienic. The moisturiser is a rich white cream and smells lovely, it has a nice fresh scent, it applies beautifully and rubs in well and sinks into my skin nicely too. As I said I use the hydraskin rich when my skin is at it's driest so if like me you have very dry skin this would be perfect for you and depending on how dry your skin is you could use the hydraskin rich twice a day as I do now or just once a day as your night cream and use the hydraskin light as your day time moisturiser, this is what I will do once my skin calms down.
Hydraskin rich is paraben free and 80% of it's ingredients are from natural origins so it doesn't contain any nasties either, it claims 24 hour hydration and a more luminous complexion, I do completely agree with the hydrating properties of the product, it is amazing and the best moisturiser I've ever used, my skin is instantly hydrated when I use it and the difference in my skin after just one use is amazing, I also agree that my complexion looks luminous, I have a lovely glow when I use the hydraskin rich, my skin looks and feels lovely.
I've tried so many different moisturisers over the years, I have bought a lot and also been sent a lot to try for review consideration on my blog and there are other moisturisers I have tried and liked and there is a brand I do want to try that I haven't yet but I always go back to the Darphin Hydraskin Rich and Hydraskin Light when my skin is going through a particularly dry phase, my skin can be a real pain and when it's bad it's really really bad, it is so dry but using the hydraskin rich for only a few days means my skin looks and feels so much better. My makeup applies beautifully over both the hydraskin rich and light.
Hydraskin Light is just as lovely as the rich it is more of a gel type cream and obviously not as rich but it's fabulous and if you have dry skin but it isn't horrendously dry I would recommend trying it, Darphin products aren't the most affordable products but they do work and for me they're worth every penny, I am miserable if my skin looks a mess and a pot of either moisturiser used on a daily basis lasts me 6 months so I don't think it's too bad at all and sometimes some on line companies have discount codes, so it can be found cheaper too, but for me it really is worth every penny.
I would 100% recommend the Hydraskin Rich it is amazing and if like me you suffer with very dry skin I would definitely recommend you try it, if your skin is dry but not exceptionally dry the hydraskin light might be better for you, and if you have a Darphin counter near you I urge you to go in and ask for a sample, you won't regret it I promise you.
If you would like to buy the Darphin Hydraskin Rich, you can find it on line at Escentual, Look Fantastic and Feel Unique, you will also find the Hydraskin Light there too.
Do you suffer from super dry skin and do you have any skin care recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments please :)
