A couple of weeks back I was gifted a Darphin VIP package from as part of the #PreenMeVIP program. For those who don’t know, Darphin is a luxury French skincare brand producing meticulously-formulated products. The company dates back to 1958, when Paris was the hub of creativity and the cosmetics industry was in it’s infancy. It was this year that Pierre Darphin, a Parisian kinesiotherapist brought Darphin to life, creating products formed with natural ingredients harvested at their peak and precious botanicals with beautifully aromatic formulas, all crafted in France.

Many of us have been inspired by Parisian culture, whether through awing at magical Instagram photos, watching ‘How To … Like a Parisian’ videos on Youtube (guilty!), or after a visit to the City of Love experiencing the laidback vibes, good wine and delicate fromage. For me, the Parisian culture includes embracing who you truly are, especially through beauty. The french are known for paying attention to skincare, being the best versions of themselves, not necessarily hiding away ‘flaws’ with piles of make up, but highlighting their natural beauty with a suitable skincare routine and a little makeup to highlight their best features.

These Darphin products make me feel like I’m living Parisian without even being in Paris! I’m going to share with you my favourite product which I’ve been carrying around with me for the last few weeks.

The Revitalising Oil – For face, body and hair

The Darphin Revitalising Oil is my favourite from this VIP package because it’s a 3-in-one oil which makes it such a great on-the-go product. The key benefits of the oil are to reveal in one simple step nourished and revitalised glowing skin; to restore the body to sublime smoothness; and the help strengthen hair to reduce breakage. I use it to top up the ends of my hair when it’s feeling dry throughout the day (I have naturally curly hair so moisture is everything to me). I also use the product to give my face a little radiance and glow, and on my body to keep myself silky smooth throughout those summer days!


The Revitalising Oil is formulated with these key botanical ingredients:

9 Plant oils: Argan, tamanu, jojoba, evening primrose, rose hip, raspberry, sweet almond, sunflower, and apricot kernel;

4 Essential oils: Rosewood, lavender, geranium, and ylang ylang;

2 Aromatic extracts: Absolute of vanilla and concrete of jasmine.


In addition to all these benefits, the sizing of the bottle is perfect for carrying around, and the packaging is designed to be as secure as possible with a cap and pump that cannot be pushed accidentally but only with a little intentional force meaning no spillages in your bag! 😉

Included in my VIP Package


The other products that I’m currently trying out are the:

Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood

Hydraskin Light

Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum

Chamomile Aromatic Care


I’m going to keep using this package so I’ll keep you updated. I’m absolutely loving the whole range so far, the aromatic scent between each product is so divine and my skin has never felt so fresh!

    I’m so basic when it comes to skincare but I definitely have to try the revitalising oil for my hair. It’s super dry too. I’ll probably keep it away from my face because I am super oily lol. A great review on a brand I am not familiar with x

      You have to try it – it’s so moisturising and smells like heaven with all those natural ingredients, seriously!

    You look so lovely and fresh in this post! So maybe it is down to these products.
    I love the Parisian ethos of simple and elegant!

      They are definitely not too overpowering though 😉 Hope you can try them out someday.
