Review – Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling – Can This Botanical Product Remove Dead Skin Cells

I know many of you adore natural ingredients and botanical extracts, then you may want to consider Darphin Paris which is now available at VivoCity Tangs. Darphin’s belief is that beauty comes from inner balance and harmony of the body, mind and soul. Although it sounds great as an image-enhancing philosophy, but it doesn’t make a significant difference in the appearance of your skin.

I’m not a fan on skin care products using natural ingredients and botanical extracts. In my opinion, I’m a bit skeptical on their limitation and ability to actually help tackle skin issues or skin rejuvenation. In fact, research has shown that there are some common botanical ingredients are said to create serious skin inflammation and thereby accelerate skin aging.

Recently, when I managed to obtain a free 3.5ml sample on this Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling, I was actually quite excited and curious to test the product and to see if this botanical product is able exfoliate my dead skin cells.

Product claims

Gently removes impurities and clears away dead cells to reveal fresher, glowing skin that’s perfectly prepared and receptive to the benefits of additional treatments.


Although Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling is considered a botanical skin care product, but the ingredients found in the product are not 100% natural.

Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling still contains many synthetic ingredients and parabens as preservatives.

Let see what are some of the natural ingredients found in the product can do to your skin. Citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel extract – potent skin sensitizer and irritant. Ananas sativus (pineapple) fruit extract – has irritating properties that can break down the connecting layers between skin cells to exfoliate skin. Saponaria officinalis extract – plant extract with detergent cleansing properties. Santalum album (sandalwood) oil – is a skin-irritant that is usually used as a fragrance. Linalool – a potent skin irritant.


The texture for this Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling is in fact quite similar to Hazeline Snow White Cream. Creamy, fine-grained and slightly silky in texture.


As per instruction, I apply a thin layer of Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling over my face and neck avoiding the eye contour area. After leaving it on for a few minutes, I hold my skin between two fingers and gently rub off with circular motions. I realize it is in fact a difficult task to rub off the dried-up mask, the mask seems to absorb onto the skin and not much residue could come off. And after rinsing off with lukewarm water, my skin feels dehydrated and no ‘friction’ at all. I wonder if is the lemon or pineapple ingredient doing the trick. A bad bad feeling!

Sad to say, Darphin Mild Aroma Peeling doesn’t remove the impurities and clears away dead cells as promised. My skin neither feels fresh nor glowing.

Anyway with this poor formulation, I’m not surprise with the result.

Although, it contains numerous natural ingredients which are potent skin-irritants, so far I never encounter any reaction from it.


Will I buy it? I doubt so
