Splurge of the Week: Darphin Aromatic Purifying Balm

About a year and a half ago, I gave a good review to Darphin's Aromatic Purifying Balm ($70). While I loved the scent and did see good results, the price tag was a little high for me to put it in the you've-absolutely-got-to-try-this category.

Fast forward to this month, when my complexion decided to take a trip to crazytown. Breakouts, sensitivity, flaking red skin, the whole nine yards. My usual moisturizers stung and irritated my skin, so I decided to go gentle into that good night skincare routine. In looking for a soothing alternative, I remembered the Darphin Balm. After letting a very small amount warm up in my hands, I gently pressed it into my skin. The next morning, the redness and flakies were gone — so much so that I wore no foundation and concealer only under my eyes. Because it's meant to be used only once a week or so, the jar lasts a long time. If your skin is angry and your budget allows for it, this balm could be the answer you're looking for.
