Well! I never thought I'd be reviewing a skin care product which costs a whopping £136.00 for just 30ml. (Apparently the RRP is £194.00!!) but here goes. I bought a bunch of sample skincare from ebay and within the lot was a 3ml bottle of the Sisley Botanical Night Complex.
My little sample glass jar looks like it should be on Alice in Wonderland, it's small but perfectly formed with white lettering on it. The lid is white plastic with an 'S' on the top of it and is a screw top fastening.
Gently tapping the jar removes the product. On the fully priced pot you get a pump dispenser. It has a light fragrance that has a fresh smell of leafy plants to me - hence it's Botanical name I suppose. It's transparent and white with a slightly runny consistency which is good for rubbing in.
Once applied to the face it feels a bit sticky whilst it is drying but it soon sinks in to the skin. Obviously, having only got 3ml to play with, I'm using my bottle quite sparingly. It feels nice on the skin, and as it's a night cream you hope it will be working its magic on you through the night.
**What is it, what does it do, and who is it for?***
- Rich in plant extracts and essential oils
- Restores tone and firmness of skin tissues
- Protects skin against stress factors
- Promotes hydration
- For all skin types
It's not brought me out in spots so that's a plus point for this sisley cream! My skin feels nice and soft and moisturised.
As I mentioned earlier, this product comes with a hefty price tag on it. I don't think I could justify paying £136 for a small bottle of this but it is a nice product.
I'm not mega keen on the smell of this face cream, I prefer something more neutral.
Although I'm sure it's a lovely product, I did read somewhere that brand and price don't matter, if you stick to a regular routine, protect your skin from the sun, take your makeup off at night and regularly moisturise your skin you will have the best result. I think you probably just need to try a few products and see what suits your skin best.
A mean two stars awarded due to the price of this product - who really can afford that? If you are that rich you should give the money to a worthy cause and stop being so vain (hehe I'm only joking).
