Most of you that regularly read my blog will know that I’m crazy about the Sisley Black Rose Face Mask, an overnight treat that my skin absolutely loves. You can read more about it here. I’d go as so far as to say that it’s one of my top 5 beauty products.
You can image my excitement then when I heard that Sisley is launching a Black Rose Face Oil to compliment the iconic mask. It will be available at Sisley counters on the 25 September.
The new anti-ageing oil with black rose was developed for women 30+ with normal, dry or very dry and dehydrated skin. Sisley’s research indicates that dry, or dehydrated skin is lacking in essential fatty acids. Fatty acids ensure that the cell membrane functions optimally and reinforces the skins dermal barrier. In a nutshell, this oil is for women who are concerned with anti-aging and whose skins have become dehydrated or dry by environmental conditions.
Black Rose Precious Face Oil R2265 (for a 25ml) is formulated with 5 plant-based active ingredients that soften and nourish the skin while boosting moisture levels. A few drops of this elixir morning and evening, leaves the skin looking smoother, healthier and more toned while protecting it from external aggressors.
A blend of camelina and plum oil delivers nourishing omega 3 and 6 that reinforce the skins lipid balance, padina pavonica extract stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, avocado extract soothes and rejuvenates and phytosqualane moisturises and nourishes.
Bulgarian rose, Magnolia and Geranium essential oils give this oil a beautiful scent while also toning, purifying and soothing the skin.
You use Black Rose Precious Face Oil by applying between 3-7 drops onto clean skin morning and evenings. The spreadability of the oils is great and
I found 3 drops more than sufficient for my skin. Also, I didn’t need an additional moisturiser after applying this oil. Even though the texture is ultra-fine and silky, it’s deeply nourishing. In fact, I think oilier skin types should avoid it as it may leave the skin looking greasy.
This high-end facial oil retails for R2265, which is expensive, I know. But, it’s important to bear in mind that Sisley only use the best ingredients in their products. A few years back, while in Paris, I had the opportunity to interview the (family) owners of Sisley and I remember Madame Isabelle d’Ornano saying: “ it doesn’t matter how expensive an ingredient is. If it’s the best and delivers results, we’ll use it in our products.” And let me tell you, the ingredients used in this oil are the best and of the highest quality available.
Also, this oil will last for ages as a little goes a long way.
Because I know how much my readers love Sisley, I thought I’d give one of you the chance to win BOTH the Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil (R2265) AND the Black Rose Cream Mask (valued at R1355). Yes, you read that correctly, one reader will win both of these amazing products.
