This review will be of another item from my skin care haul I did a while back. I have always been fascinated by high-end brands that make such tall claims for their products and charge an arm and leg for it. Do they really live up to those claims? Is it worth the money? Hopefully, these reviews here on IMBB can help you make that decision. This review will be on Sisley Paris Botanical Floral Toning Lotion.
For softer, fresher, more comfortable skin. Toner designed to perfect makeup removal and keep skin looking clear and fresh. Formulated with soothing and softening extracts of rose, cornflower and witch hazel, Floral Toning Lotion is particularly suitable for sensitive skin and skin prone to dryness. With daily use, it helps to tone the skin, provide instant freshness and comfort, illuminate the complexion and prepare skin for the benefits of subsequent skin care products.
How To Use:
Wipe a cotton pad soaked in Floral Toning Lotion over the face, throat and even the eye contour, morning and night, after removing makeup (wipe-off or rinse-off) or after a mask. Leave on to penetrate for a moment before applying your usual skin care cream. To perfectly cleanse the skin and remove all traces of makeup, use foaming rinse-off formulas unless you prefer the gentle action of a cleansing milk.
$104 for 8.4 fl oz.
My Experience with Sisley Botanical Floral Toning Lotion:
I have dry skin hence I never really felt I needed a toner in my skin care routine. Usually toners contain alcohol hence are known to dry out skin, but when I saw this toner by Sisley Paris which claimed to be alcohol free and suitable for sensitive skin and dry skin, I was very intrigued.
Packaging: Comes in a simple plastic bottle with a screw cap. The bottle is slightly see through, so you can see the amount of product left. It has a small hole dispenser. The bottle is quite frankly doesn’t scream luxury.
Consistency/ Feel on skin/Results: This is a watery toner. You need just a little bit on a cotton pad to sweep over your entire face and neck. Hence this bottle will last you a few months even if you use it every day. This toner is very refreshing when applied on the skin. It gives a nice cooling sensation and does not sting or irritate the skin. I use it after cleansing and it helps get rid of any residue makeup that may have been left behind and also clears up the soap residue. My skin feels so squeaky clean after using this and at once my pores appear smaller (I don’t have huge pores to begin, but still this was a difference I noticed). It does not leave any sticky, tacky or greasy feel on the skin once it dries and makes my skin feel soft, smooth and rejuvenated. It leaves my face glowing and healthy immediately after use. It has never dried out my skin, on the contrary, it makes my skin feel supple.
Fragrance: This toner has an absolutely amazing scent. It smells floral and refreshing and the scent lingers on your skin for a little while provided you do not top this off with some stronger-smelling product. I love how this product makes my skin feel that I will even use it mid-day when my skin feels it needs a little perk up and it also helps me feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Could this be Aromatherapy? 😛
Overall, I am very much happy with this product’s performance. Though I still am conflicted whether this justifies the extremely high price tag for something which is not an absolute must-have in your skin care routine and which only gives you a short term feel-good factor rather than a long-term result like those which are provided by a serum or a moisturizer. But if this review tempted you, a decision to purchase this can be between you and your wallet, but if you are looking to splurge, this is an absolute fantastic item to do it on.
I highly recommend this.
