D’ALCHÉMY: Natural, Holistic Skincare for Aging Skin

Dalchemy-Natural-SkincareEven when I was in my 20s, I couldn’t just get away with slapping some random cream on my face and call it a day. I’ve always had dry skin, so I had to watch what I’m using, or it could get uncomfortable really fast. Now that I’m older, I’m even pickier! I’m seeking skincare, which is hydrating AND has some kind of anti-aging benefits. Meaning, it contains ingredients, which fight free radicals that damage collagen.

D’ALCHÉMY is a natural and organic holistic skincare that focuses on supporting the needs of aging skin. Aging skin usually lacks moisture and firmness, so you’ll see a lot of products with intensely hydrating and skin-renewing properties. They have a wide range of products, so everyone will find the best one for their needs. I’ve tested a few items from that range, and here are some of my thoughts.

Dalchemy Holistic Natural SkincareMicellar Cleansing Water* / 100ml
Based on one of the best things for mature skin – rose hydrosol, this cleansing water is gentle and soothing. It’s a spray cleanser that you’re supposed to spray onto the cotton pad and wipe your face with it. However, maybe because I use reusable pads and they absorb too much product, I found that spraying the water on my face and then wiping it off, works much better. It does remove makeup and clean my skin well. Many cleansers tend to dry out the skin even a little, but this one doesn’t. On the contrary, my skin feels soft to the touch. One thing that I struggle with when using this cleanser is that I have a hard time removing my mascara with it. It does eventually come off, but it requires some serious rubbing, which I don’t really want for my eye area. Because of that, I choose to use it in the morning or on no-makeup days rather than remove my makeup with it.

See the ingredients:

Rosa Damascena (damask rose) flower water*, aqua*, propanediol*, glycerin*, polyglyceryl-4 laurate sebacate*, polyglyceryl-6 caprate/caprylate*, decyl glucoside*, gluconolactone*, trehalose*, acacia concinna fruit extract*, balanites aegyptiaca (soapberry tree) fruit extract*, sodium benzoate, rosa gallica (french rose) flower extract*, gypsophila paniculata (baby’s breath) root extract*, Pyrus malus (apple) juice*, prunus persica (peach) juice*, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) seed extract*, Hordeum vulgare (barley) extract*, Rosa Damascena (damask rose) flower oil**, Carica papaya fruit extract*, citrus Grandis (grapefruit) fruit extract*, Panax ginseng root extract*, sodium phytate*, citric acid*, potassium sorbate, calcium gluconate, alcohol, sorbic acid

Natural Micro-Dermabrasion Peel* / 15ml, travel-size
Because my skin is sensitive, any kind of peels or exfoliators scares me. I’m trying to be really careful about what I choose. The Micro-Dermabrasion Peel has a lovely scent, a sleek packaging, but I have to be honest here – I did not like the peel much. Mainly, because it contains large grains that feel a bit harsh and rough. It didn’t irritate my skin on the first use that much, but I just didn’t feel comfortable to continue using it.

See the ingredients:

hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) leaf water*, kaolin*, citrus limon (lemon) peel water*, oryza sativa (rice) powder*, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower water*, lippia citriodora (verbena) leaf water*, propanediol*, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil*, dicaprylyl carbonate*, isopropyl palmitate*, glyceryl stearate*, cetearyl glucoside*, cetearyl alcohol*, aqua*, glycerin*, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil**, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) bud oil**, pyrus malus (apple) juice*, prunus persica (peach) juice*, triticum vulgare (wheat) seed extract*, hordeum vulgare (barley) extract*, panax ginseng root extract*, santalum album (sandalwood) wood oil**, cinnamomum zeylanicum (cinnamon) bark oil**, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) oil**, punica granatum (pomegranate) fruit extract*, benzyl alcohol, citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit extract*, carica papaya fruit extract*, sodium stearoyl glutamate*, citric acid*, xanthan gum*, rosa gallica (french rose) flower extract*, rosa damascena (damask rose) flower oil**, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, sodium phytate*, tocopherol*, beta-sitosterol, alcohol, squalene*, gluconolactone*, calcium gluconate, hydrolyzed algin*, zinc sulfate, salicylic acid, sorbic acid, linalool***, eugenol***, cinamal***

Dalchemy Super Rich Multi HydratorSuper Rich Multi Hydrator* (50ml) and Intense Skin Repair Oil* (5ml, travel-size) were the two products that I was most excited about. And they both delivered! Super Rich Multi Hydrator is created for mature, dehydrated skin that lost all its firmness and elasticity. It’s absolutely fantastic! I wish the scent would be maybe a bit different, but the results are outstanding. It has a light buttery texture, which sinks in reasonably fast, and leaves the skin plump, hydrated, and satin-looking. It also noticeably softens the appearance of fine lines.
The Skin Repair Oil takes a much longer time to sink in, so I mostly use it at night. The best thing about it is that you only need a small few drops for the whole face + neck. This one also leaves the skin soft and even a bit radiant. Overall, both of these moisturizers work amazingly well!

Age-Delay Eye Concentrate* / 15ml
Usually, I’m not the one to review eye creams because I don’t feel that I have a lot to say about them, except their texture and whether I liked it for some reason or not. But this one has pleasantly surprised me. What really stands out is its buttery texture, which sounds like it should be heavy, but I can assure you, it’s not. It does sink in immediately, and what it leaves is softness and reduced under-eye lines. I don’t have many wrinkles around my eyes, but the ones I do have, this cream manages to [lightly] fill in.
