how to use sisley black rose mask
And I’m so glad I did, because it was a very pleasant surprise!
I probably won’t repurchase it right away, but occasionally, I’ll be really happy to have it back in my routine!
Take the Black Rose Cream Mask, for example. It’s incredible. It’s also £88. Do I slather it on every week for my instant youth effect? Smoothing, plumping, brightening? Or do I save it for very very special occasions? I had the same dilemma with the Express Flower Gel – to resign myself to regular use, knowing how great the results will be, or to save for rainy days? I’ll tell you this for free: if you have some cash floating about and you’re looking for great skincare, then make friends with Sisley. I have had rave reviews from every single person I have recommended it to – it’s an absolute blessing for dry, dull complexions and its hangover-fixing powers are unparalleled. If you don’t have loads of cash to spare, then on the rare occasion that you decide to have a splurge, make Sisley your first stop.
Lecture over! The Black Rose Cream Mask is the newest treatment from Sisley – they only release new products every once in a blue moon, so I was excited to give this a try. It’s kind of the opposite of the Express Flower Gel; whereas that one is refreshing, lifting, tightening, the Black Rose is plumping, moisturising, radiance-giving. It has the same method of application (a thin layer left on for about ten minutes, excess tissued off) and the same kind of results (amazingly fresh-looking skin) but the experience is quite different. This one feels more soothing and pampering – more of a traditional skin treat. It smells divine and the texture is, as the name would suggest, creamy. I can’t think of anything that I don’t like about this mask, but I’d say that it’s best used an hour or so before makeup rather than in a rush immediately before! It’s good to give it some time to sink in – of course, if you’re pushed for time then you can tissue off any residue and continue with your routine, but as it costs £88 I think it’s nice to give it some breathing space!

Due to its anti-ageing active ingredients, those concerned by fine lines, wrinkles and dullness will perhaps see the best results from this mask. However its deep hydrating action makes it great for dry and dehydrated skin in need of extra moisture. Those with blemish-prone skin may find it too rich for regular use and prefer to limit it to once per fortnight.
