No this isn’t a typo. Yes I do really mean Diptyque. The brand famously known for their uber cool candles is now offering a range of skin care products and of course, yours truly had to try them!!
First, can we just take a moment to look at the packaging. I mean… hello?! So effortless chic. So French (and I’m not saying that cos I’m French!). Just lovely.
Then let’s move on to what’s inside the pretty tubes & jars.
First up is the Radiance Boosting Powder.
Role: Cleanses and clarifies skin for greater radiance.
It comes as a finely milled powered which you pour into your hands and lather up using the supplied little foam ball previously dampened. You then clean your face with the foam, rinse off and voila! The texture is very similar to the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant .
I’ve used it for a couple of weeks now and would say it’s a pretty nice & gentle cleanser, best kept for a morning cleanse and not heavy-duty enough for make-up/sun screen removal. Still, my skin does feel purified and not dry at all which is a good thing. Nothing ground breaking either and it’s a pretty expensive product at $58 so not sure I would re-purchase.
Second, I tried out the Multi-Use Exfoliating Scrub.
Now this one I really liked! A pure-white creamy clay which can be used in 2 ways! You can use it as a scrub and work it over your skin to remove dead skin cells gently OR you can use it as a deep cleansing mask by letting it rest on your skin for 10 minutes.
Rinse it off and say hello to a brighter, more radiant skin! I loved it from the first time I used it!! This one is $65 which I know is a little on the pricey side but it’s well worth the investment and the jar will last you a while.
You can purchase the full range of skin care products from the Diptyque store at The Dubai Mall.
Have you tried any of the Diptyque Skin Care products? Do you recommend them? Would love to explore the brand a bit more….
