Darphin Melaperfect Serum

I am really excited about this product. If anyone had read through my blog posts, they will know that I am obsessed with having clear, even skin tone. Being of Indian origin, I am more prone to darker areas around the skin and brown spots. I have a few clusters around the sides of my face which I yearn to get rid of. Since using sunscreen over the past year, I have noticed that it has helped stop the formation of new ones. But I need something that will help reduce or even get rid of the existing ones.

The Darphin Melaperfect Anti-dark spots perfecting treatment claims to help combat these two huge issues of mine. This serum contains a patented 'Trametes mushroom extract' which helps minimise the appearance of pigment marks.

I would say the serum is just a tad thicker than the others I have been using. I like that I can put on my face cream straight after using the serum as it absorbs immediately into my skin without leaving any sticky residue. My skin feels really soft and smooth after the application, and I find that moisturiser just glides after using this.

So does it work? Well, I have been using it only in the night time for about three weeks now and I love how my skin feels in the morning. I can definitely see an improvement to its texture since using this as my skin is looking and feeling smoother. My dark spots are still there BUT I have noticed that the area around my mouth looks a bit more even to the rest of my face. An exit review will be in order to see whether or not it has worked. It will be a while though as I only need a pea size amount for each application. So far, I am loving it, my skin is loving it - I have high hopes for this!

Its exclusive at Space NK at the moment, but I think it goes nationwide in a few months. It is a bit steep at £57 but this will last months and months and months. But serums are always a bit more expensive. Plus, its one skincare product (along with eye cream) that I don't mind splashing out on.

  2. Hey Amina. Thanks for the tip - I was just being stingy using it in once a day! But think I'll start using it in the morning to hurry the results considering I have noticed a difference in such a short time!

  4. For some reason, I can’t see all of this content, stuff keeps hiding? Are you taking advantage of java?

  5. I feel like I have tried everything under the sun. I would love for this miracle product to be just that, a miracle! Please keep us posted on your progress.

  6. I still have tonnes of it left and have been using it nearly every day! I've just come out with a couple of scars due to a spot bursting. Concentrating on that - will keep you posted! :)

  7. I love it...i started using it night and day, just over a week ago and i've already noticed a difference! I have melasma on my neck which is basically a ring of dark skin around the base of my neck. I started using it on that but have now started using it on my face because:

    1) I love the smell.
    2) I wanted that 'glow'...and my husband noticed! (Now, if you're married you know husbands don't notice things easily/quickly!)

    He doesn't even know i'm using a new product!

    It's expensive...think i'll hit duty free next week and buy a few more!

  8. Having had a thorough look around your blog, I have the need the say...yound l sound like me! I've tried maybe around 80% of the same products you have...I have dry skin...and I LOVE MAKE UP!

    May i suggest a few products.

    1) Aveeno for the face (life saver for dry skin, you need only apply it 2 or 3 times a's that good.

    2) You're using the Darphin Melaperfect anyway, add to that the Soap & Glory Youthful Rejuvinating Face Serum (gives a nice glow...benefit is less makeup!).

    3) For dark eye circles - This Works tried eye serum.

    4) Givenchy Mister light is a pen concealer which does budge!

    5) Chanel Hydramax + active teinte is a tinted moisutriser which covers well, smells divine AND doesn't budge!

    6) Best blushers - Benetint in Rose, and Bobby brown creme blush in Pink raspberry...doesn't wear off.

    7) A lovely nude lip colour is MACs Frecklestone.

    8) Long lasting eyeliner - Bobby Browns Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink 7.

    Enjoy! :-)

  9. Commenter: 6 August 2011: My serum in now completely finished :( I can see the difference in my skin since I've stopped using it. Its a lot of money to spend, but seriously thinking of saving up to get a replacement!

  10. 2nd commenter 6 August 2011: thank you so much for your skincare tips. As it happens, I do some of the stuff you have suggested so great minds and all ;)

    Though think I will try the eye serum and concealor - I need a miracle for these dark cricles!

    Also the soap and glory serum, very interesting choice!

  11. I've heard good things about this darphin product. Going on my wish ♥ list now.
