Review: Darphin Meadowsweet & Cucumber Eye Refiner Treatment

We start with a lifestyle consultation and welcoming ritual that includes a sensory test, inhalation of aromatic oils, pressure point manipulation and warmed mitts to freshen-up tired feet. Another warm towel is applied to my neck, to release tension.

A thorough yet gentle cleanse of the eyes and face is followed by Darphin’s Dark Circles Relief & De-Puffing Eye Serum (£39 for 15 ml), which contains peptides, passionflower and licorice to banish dark circles.

Next-up is Wrinkle Corrective Eye Contour Cream (£39 for 15 ml) packed with peptides, magnolia and hyaluronic acid spheres to smooth and optically ‘blur’ look of lines, and rejuvenate eye contours.

As the lovely Soothing Mask Eye Contour, £33 for 30 ml) calms, cools and aids firmness, my therapist taps and sweeps her fingers gently over my eyes to reduce those eye bags.

Containing cucumber extracts, meadowsweet and Centella asiatica to reduce puffiness, discoloration around eye areas, it’s left for five minutes while a heavenly hand massage is performed. The treatment is completed with another application of eye serum.

Our verdict?
My peppers were noticeably brighter and I was completely de-stressed!
