My skin is dry and sensitive. It’s noticeably red on my thirstiest areas (i.e. around my nostrils, forehead, and eyebrows) and anywhere I accidentally hit with my squeeze nails. Darphin Super Concentrate Intral Rescue therefore seemed to be the perfect solution for my particular skin tone problems. The brand advises that their potent treatment – which is meant to be used twice a day for 28 days after your serum and before your moisturizer – can help soothe redness, hydrate, and may even promote a stronger skin barrier (the top layer. outermost of your skin) with diligent use.
I tested it with a simple routine: I applied the treatment, along with the brand’s Intral Redness Relief Soothing Serum and Hydraskin Light Cream Gel every morning and night. After just one use, my skin looked slightly more glowing. (More on that later.) In just three weeks, my complexion was refreshed, glowing, and less red in some areas. Dermatologist Jeannette Graf, MD, and cosmetic chemist Ginger King break down the supercharged effects of the treatment.
Everything about its use is a real luxury.
Using the Intral Rescue Concentrate felt forgiving. It comes packaged in iridescent pink bottles with pump dispensers that reveal its luxuriously light formula. I would sweep the milky white liquid off my face and neck and it would melt into my skin in less than a minute. The immediate result: a light, non-sticky shine.
It made my skin glow (but not greasy).
The immediate shine I saw after applying was dewy, cool, but not at all sticky or oily. King explains that his featherweight seed oils – especially sweet almond and camellia japonica – are responsible for this. To my surprise, with constant use of the product, I found the glow to last even longer, making my skin tone more even (which King attributes to the different flower extracts in the formula).
It soothed my red, itchy spots.
The most pleasurable result was the reduction in the redness and dryness of my complexion. “There are a number of ingredients in the formula that are hydrating, soothing and anti-redness,” says Graf, highlighting the use of humectants by Intral Rescue Concentrate (ingredients that attract and hold water) and dipotassium glycyrrhizate (which has anti-inflammatory Properties). The brand adds that this effect could be created with its Calm complex – a mixture of plants (chamomile, hawthorn and peony) and protective additives (D-panthenol and polysaccharide).
Graf goes on to explain that those with skin types similar to mine – dry and prone to redness – may benefit from using these ingredients, as well as those who may have overexfoliated (leaving them with a dry, red, and irritated complexion. ).
My skin is so beautiful – I left out my base makeup.
My favorite look every day is makeup without makeup, and I didn’t think I would ever feel comfortable enough to switch from my complexion routine to without makeup. at all. I used to diligently cover my spots with a few dabs of concealer or a light coat of baby cream every day, but now I feel confident enough to attend back-to-back virtual meetings without it.
There are more skin improvements to come.
It’s only been three weeks of incorporating the treatment into my daily routine, but the brand claims the skin-enhancing effects become even more dramatic with 28 days of use. The brand even says that this product will ultimately promote a healthy microbiome, which King says is thanks to its probiotic ingredients. They “feed on the good bacteria in your skin to protect it and reduce skin sensitivity,” she explains.
Graf and King agree that the product will further soothe sensitive skin and keep it hydrated, which means less angry skin in the long run.
