I wasn’t sure what to expect from the new Diptyque Skincare Collection, known for their beautiful candles, luxe body line and heavenly scents the L’Art du Soin for the face Collection marks the brands first foray into the world of facial skincare.
Composed of five pampering skincare essentials, the collection is designed to bring a new type of beauty ritual to your daily regime. The products are packaged in beautiful sophisticated containers which make you feel as if you just went to the apothecary and had bespoke products created just for you.
Formulated to be gentle but hardworking each product has a base of damask rose hydrosol which is known not only for soothing the skin, but also for calming the psyche.
Although all the products in the range are pretty amazing, for me the line has three award winners: Infused Facial Water (I don’t think I can ever live without this now that I have tried it), Nourishing Cleansing Balm (I’m addicted) and the Protective Moisturizing Lotion (Heaven).
Bursting with the vitamins, minerals, and moisturizers this multi-purpose facial water is enriched with Damask rose hydrosol and infused with nasturtium to bring out your complexion’s natural radiance. It can be used as a toner, on its own to softly cleanse skin or as a substitute for water with the other products in the range, it hydrates, tones and perfectly preps skin before makeup plus is smells fantastic! Since I have been using it I have notice my makeup applying much more smoothly and my skin feels super-hydrated even in the sweltering 110 degree weather we have been having in Vegas.
I have become addicted to Cleansing Balms this year. They are one of those products that make you think “Where have you been all my life”. Not only do they cleanse the face like nothing else they also remove all traces of makeup! The Diptyque Nourishing Cleansing Balm works three ways: When gently massaged onto dry skin it becomes an oil that removes makeup and impurities, once mixed with water it is a lotion that can be wiped away with a damp washcloth or use as a mask by applying to face then leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off for a quick complexion pick-me-up. Rich and buttery it leaves skin looking plump and feeling velvety soft- great for hands and elbows as well!
Protective Moisturizing Lotion.
I am a serious moisturizer snob. This is probably the one singular beauty item I am the most critical about. My moisturizer must contain an SPF and provide deep moisture without leaving my skin looking greasy or the product feeling too heavy. Diptique’s Protective Moisturizing Lotion delivers and then some! It has a soft light texture and applies almost as fluidly as a serum, provides and SPF 15 and keeps my skin hydrated all day long! It contains grape extract to brighten and even skin tone, is packed full of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, as well as vitamins and trace minerals plus the orange blossom scent is positively luxurious. I’m in love.
