Diptyque Gives Good Face
The brand’s bougies have a cult following, but the French company is quickly becoming a head-to-toe experience. Body care was launched approximately four years ago, but starting next month you can extend the luxe experience to your face with L’Art Du Soin, a five-piece collection of skin products that boasts damask rose as its hero ingredient. Included in the range are two cleansers: Poudre Puretée, a powder that foams up with the help of a small, ball-like sponge and water, and Pommade Démaquillante, a balm laced with sweet almond oil and three floral waxes (ylang-ylang, mimosa, and geranium) that melts upon contact with skin. For deeper exfoliation, Argile De Gommage (a multipurpose clay) contains marble, rice, and oat powders to gently slough away dry patches, and can also be painted on with a makeup brush and used as a mask to draw out impurities. Completing the set is a facial water (composed of 84 percent damask rose hydrolate to refresh and tone) and a moisturizing lotion (which hydrates with white lily and calendula extracts, while brightening via grape extract). Needless to say, these rich formulas smell as divine as the candles that came before them—your complexion and senses will rejoice.
