Coming Soon: Darphin's Designer Zit-Zapping Duo
Coming Soon: Darphin's Designer Zit-Zapping Duo

Due in stores this fall are two new sebum-controlling skin-care products from Darphin called Purifying Targeted Gel ($50) and Overnight Refining Lotion ($50).

The clear, fast-drying gel can be applied to the affected area as often as necessary. The lotion acts as an astringent to kill bacteria and reduce oil production and shine, especially to your t-zone —all without drying out your face like so many other spot treatments are prone to do.

The products contain essential oils, which are blended together with salicylic acid, lemon, Vitamin C, and isolutrol (a balancing agent) to help purify the skin, control sebum production, stimulate skin renewal, soothe, irritated skin and reduce the look of large pores. The treatments are gentle enough not to irritate the skin, yet are strong enough to fight off persistent pimples. And did I mention how great the smell is?

I've been using this combo for three days and so far I haven't experienced any flaking or unusual dryness — yippee!

The design of that bottle is so so similar to France Laure.

All you have to do is mention essential oils and I'm in! This might be what an alternative to my Kinerase spot treatment occasionally. Thanks for the heads up Bella!

$100 for spot treatment is pretty hefty.

It sounds really good, but kind of pricey for what it is - and fortunately, my skin has really been improving over the past year or so.

50 bucks each?? Whoa :O ! Sometimes I feel lpunking down some serious cash on a good derm and prescription meds is the real deal. The OTC stuff just works for mild acne or an occasional pimple & costs a lot more over time.. :(

That's pretty expensive for something to help prevent/control acne. There are tons of drugstore brands that work just as well for WAY cheaper.

I'd love to try these but definitely can't afford to spend that kind of money. Let us know how it works and if this is something worth saving my pennies for.

Does it seem to be quickly working on actual pimples?
