Is it Spring yet? I think everyone will agree these past winter months have been brutal on the skin. I have been applying moisturizer like crazy, only to have my hands and lips crack anyway.

I was more than excited to put Darphin’s Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum to the test. Darphin’s Hydraskin collection is designed specifically to help hydrate skin- hence the name.  It is ideal for all skin types and is formulated to quench dry, tight skin. It sounded like the perfect pick-me-up for my parched winter skin.

The serum comes in a small, blue frosted glass bottle. Usually I don’t get excited about the appearance of my beauty products, but it was too pretty to throw in a drawer. It is currently displayed on my glass vanity.

Exhibit A:


I have to admit, I was expecting the serum to be thick and oily. It actually feels a bit more like the consistency of water, but it only takes a tiny amount to cover the whole face. It also has a very light and fresh fragrance- all bonus points in my book.

After applying the Hydraskin Serum in the morning for a little over a month, my skin feels properly hydrated and quenched- no dry skin here! To be honest, I don’t know that I would put this into my permanent beauty product rotation year round, as it is a bit out of my price range (at $76). But it is definitely the perfect serum for winter months, and with the small amount needed, I could see it lasting several months before running out.

I was not disappointed with how Darphin’s Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum left my skin feeling, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for to rejuvenate their dry winter skin. Happy hydrating!

    I used to use Darphin products from Neiman Marcus. They were fantastic. Wish I could afford ’em now!

    I’ve never heard of this brand before! I live in Florida and it’s a high of 85 right now so I clearly don’t need this, but one of my best friends lives in New York and has been suffering from craaazy dry skin. I’ll have to recommend this to her!
