The Diptyque skincare range IS truly amazing!
This time the product I’m going to tell you about is the DIPTYQUE Radiance Boosting Powder for the Face, a product like no other I have tried before. When released, this facial powder and the cleansing balm ( review here and another post here ) were the two products I wanted the most and my intuition wasn’t wrong!
The Radiance Boosting Powder for the face is a powder meant to clean, sooth and purify your complexion. It contains white clay with a purifying effect and remineralizing action, and a powder made out of a combination of rose petals, jasmin and neroli flowers. In contact with water the powder transforms into a creamy, soft mousse, which will leave your skin clean and bright. It will also prepare it for the next steps of your facial routine.
How I used it:
– I poured some of the product into my hand and added instead of water some Diptyque Infusal Facial Water for the Face, another great product from their new skincare range. The result is going to be a very soft and smooth, and herbaly scented white paste which I massaged into my skin with my bare hands, because I have sensitive skin and I discovered that the little black sponge that came with the powder was to harsh for me. But if you want a more of a mechanical exfoliation you can use it, if your skin allows you to. After a few minutes I rinsed everything with warm water.
The effect was immediate! My skin looked bright, plumped, elastic and clean. What I did after that was to wipe my face with a cotton pad with some more of the Infused Facial Water on… and nothing else. I went to bed and when got up my face was still bright, plumped, elastic and clean… No excess oils, no redness, and more important – no allergic reactions. After two days my skin was still feeling fresh and healthy.
– beside using the product as I told you before, I also used it as a deep clean face mask. I used the same “ingredients”. I applied it on my face with a brush and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then I rinsed it off, and the effect was the same. Plus, I noticed that my pores weren’t as visible as before. Keep in mind to take the product after 5 minutes, otherwise it will leave you with some redness in your sensitive areas. Nothing bad though!
I used the powder for its own purposes twice a week and as a mask once a week, or even every other week.
The Diptyque Radiance Boosting Powder for the Face is not a miracle worker but I am very pleased with the results so far!
See you soon, beautiful!
