Now, we are entering my favorite section of skin care – Moisturizer aka daytime/nighttime products … hope my experience can enlighten your reading pleasure

Sisley – Moisturizer with Cucumber

http://www.sisley-paris.com/en-US/skincare/face/moisturizers/moisturizer-with-cucumber-1-5-oz.html

Sisley Moisturizer with CucumberThis the first daytime cream that I used when I first learned about Sisley. I was living in severe air polluted and hot climate city during my early 20s, my skin is extremely dry and sensitive; therefore, the Sisley cosmetic consultant recommended that I give “cucumber” a try. The nature of cucumber tends to calm and cool the skin and gives the skin a moment to breath the freshness of water content from the cucumber. The lightly watery creamy texture of the daytime cream is perfect for using during summer and improves dehydrated skin. It is not rich enough (moisture level) during the winter especially if you are living in a dry, windy, cold climate.

Sisley – Hydra-Global

I talked about this particular product in my “Dehydration“ post. What makes this one so unique is the anti-aging and anti wrinkle feature. As you probably sensed, I’m no longer in my 20s so my skin needs have shifted to a different level. To prevent and slow down wrinkles and the aging process in particular with dehydrated skin, it’s important that each product contain some sort of anti-aging and anti-wrinkle active ingredients. The gel/fluid like texture allows skin to absorb it quickly, the combination formula of all the active plant ingredients and essential oils successfully slow down Read more “Sisley, Paris Finale”

Sisley – Express Flower Gel Mask

Sisley Express Flower GelHonestly, I don’t love this product but nothing negative to say about it. I have tons of this product in travel size as well as full size. I don’t necessary see any big results or effects on my skin except it gives “hydration” and freshness from fatigue. The fact is that it’s so easy to use; my husband and I always carry one travel size to our hot tub spa to use it on our face while we are enjoying the jet tub and the steam room.

I got the pleasure to use this product for the very first time only 2 weeks ago. Without reading any directions and solely based on my experience with Sisley products, I quickly put it on right after I cleaned up my face and stepped into Sauna room Read more “Sisley, Paris (Part 2)”

I was shocked to read Paula’s choice post reviewing a Sisley product while I was sharing my own experience on several different brands of skin care products including Sisley products at www.gots2know.com.

First, all Sisley products do contain fragrance but the smell is light and subtle that actually brightens up your senses, and I haven’t heard anyone including myself have any irritation or any kind of allergic reaction from using of any Sisley product. Second, each Sisley product is tailored for a specific action to the skin based on each plant’s unique active chemical properties and by combining with other plants extracts to achieve the optimization of the specific action for various types of skin conditions and skin needs in each different life stage. It’s safe and natural which is perfect for those who have sensitive skin or easy to have allergic reactions. And, YES, I do agree with Paula that the price is extremely expensive, and the price has gone up enormously over the 20 years of my usage. The following are a list of products that my family members and myself have been using for at least 20+ years and continue to use.

 

Sisley – Floral Toning Lotion

Excellent toning lotion. I normally use it after cleaning my face or after a long flight. The fragrance smells so smoothing, and it also moisturizes and refreshes your skin. I also used it to remove facial milk cleanser; my mom Read more “Sisley, Paris (Part 1)”
