I am a cosmetic atheist. This means that I believe in chemistry more than in the "magic of herbs and infusions," and I do not believe in "magic cream from all" in principle. Therefore, I am very skeptical about natural cosmetics.
Natural mask, organic body cream - this is normal. But I was not ready to use face cream where in the composition of completely buttercups, flowers.
Skepticism is based on experience. I did not find a good face cream either in expensive natural cosmetics (Origins, Aveda, Dr. Haushka), or in cheaper (Weleda, etc.).
Usually, with regular use of natural cream, with my normal thin skin, there was one (or even several) embarrassment at once:
* tonal rolled down on the cream,
* cream and whey of a different brand started a war,
* pores clogged,
* the face is oily or does not absorb the cream,
* The cream did nothing at all, that is, it didn’t even moisturize.
If you have the same story with "org-", "natu-", "bio-" creams - welcome to the club of skeptic chemists
And now I’ll tell the members of the club that we are wrong ... that there is at least 1 cool natural cream that is no worse than la mer.
Amazingly, for some reason very little is written about such cool things. Injustice will be corrected right now Briefly about the brand Diptyque.
This is a respected brand in the field of niche perfumery. Diptyque has existed for about 50 years and until recently it mainly produced eau de toilette and some of the best perfumed candles in the world ( this is not from the words of marketers, but my personal opinion is roof-
Then the creators of the brand realized that: “everyone already has perfumed body creams and shower gels, but we don’t” - and quickly eliminated this gap. We approached the task very responsibly, as a result, their care for the body also began to be in great demand. The logical step was the creation of cosmetics for the face, the line of which they launched in 2014.
Judging by the Diptyque products that I had,
and had almost everything
, the creators of the brand - perfectionists to the marrow of bones, love nature and antiquity.
They take the old formulas
as the basis of almost all Diptyque products (for example, the facial line was developed on the basis of a collection of recipes from the 19th century), choose natural ingredients (the creators are vegans and, at the same time, the owners of the island, where all ants and herbs are grown) and come up with super packaging art object
As a result, Diptyque releases a small set of products, without any magical promises, but - at the same time - very high-quality, very aesthetic ... and environmentally friendly.
Honestly, you won’t surprise me with grass growing on an island without cars - I also have difficulty reaching cars on our Russian roads, but I respect this brand for quality and aesthetics.About Diptyque Essential Face Cream
Acquaintance with the departure from Diptyque, I began with washing and masks. Gradually, the level of trust in the brand grew so much that I decided to take a chance and buy a cream. Moreover, the price many times lower than my usual La Mer suggested a squander.
As a result, for more than 4 months, the launched La Mer lies on the sidelines, and I unbridledly cheated on my favorite brand with Diptyque
"The heart of a beautiful
... la la la ..."1. Aesthetics.
While reading care posts about the beauty of a cream jar, I usually smile skeptically ... but I’ve rolled in and now I’ll also sing the jar.
Even worse: I'll start with a box and a little book about the product in it ... What drawings, what font! Isn't that mi-mi-mi?
A can. This is chic, rough white glass, this lid is made of plastic, which is also almost like glass.
To the Louvre definitely.2. The smell.
We continue the flow of emotions.
It smells like a blooming spring field: grass, not the sweet smell of wildflowers. Very natural, very soothing.
I like to grind this cream in my hands before application and just breathe it. In my opinion, some natural brands have such a recommendation for application, but only with Diptyque it is not a recommendation, but the command of the heart.
Since the smell is caused by natural components, it is not strong and does not remain on the face. You can enjoy it only at the time of application.3. Specifications and composition.
Now on to the case.
The cream is declared as nutritious, but it is not oily and is completely "eaten" by my normal skin in a minute. It has a very pleasant consistency: as if a heavy nutritious cream was whipped to a gel state.
Diptyque Essential Face Cream does not contain SPF
, so it can be used as day and night care.
The foundation or powder on it behave absolutely decently.
The composition will delight lovers of organics and vegans
The word “parfum” is in the composition, but, according to the manufacturer, this is a natural composition ... judging by the reaction of my skin, manufacturers do not lie.
Consumption is economical: about a pea is needed on the face and neck.
It has been kept open for 6 months, which adds a “+” to its natural karma.4. Care properties.What we have:
I have normal skin, therefore it is important to protect and moisturize it. At the same time, my skin is thin and sooooo fond of reacting negatively to the outside world with rashes and peeling. Also, due to age (for DA)
), I got a dull complexion problem.How does the cream work:
Immediately after application there is a feeling of soft, velvety skin. The softening effect is created by oils, not silicones, and lasts all day / night.
The cream perfectly nourishes and moisturizes in the warm season. In the summer, only tonic for the face and him is enough for me.In cold weather
, the cream may be good for oily skin, but my normal moisturizing serum is required
By the way, while with all the serums, he combined well.
For 4 months of regular use of inflammation, peeling, clogged pores did not cause.Effect of use:
He did not promise and does not do anti-aging, lifting and other miracles.
But the cream perfectly improves the texture of the skin. The face glows in the morning
, the skin is very soft and soft, it feels good.There is less inflammation
, less often “tightens” the face: after all, when the skin is comfortable, it does not swear.
In general, the cream just makes good skin even better, which is what I need.
For a snack - a macro photo of the
nose of the
skin in the morning. Just see the state of the pores and the same "glow".Conclusions.
Price: about 4000 rubles. over 50 ml
Period of use: more than 4 months (1/2 jars)
A great base cream for all ages.
