Being the world full of beauty products, we usually focus on our face and the skin on our face. Buying makeup and skincare products is part of the routine. You might have experienced confusion and sometimes you reach out to friends and family to get advice and to know what is working from them. But when it comes to body care, we tend to forget about the options and just go on with the same old body lotion which we had a few years back. With time, it is not just the skin on your face but also your body that needs extra care. After two kids and going through hormonal changes, stretch marks, and what not, I have felt the skin on my body is not the same anymore unless I care for it. The things that used to work for my face and body don’t work the same way they used to anymore. And as you might know by now, I do believe in caring and maintaining, I have found a new favorite for body care, Sisley Paris Restorative Body Cream.
Sisley Paris Restorative Body Cream is described as an intensely restorative and moisturizing skin care to maintain optimal hydration and soothe sensations of discomfort. Restorative Body Cream includes a complex of active ingredients capable of strengthening hydration mechanisms by retaining water in the epidermis and by limiting water loss, for intensely repaired and lastingly hydrated the skin. The three main points that distinguish this body cream from the others are:
Immediate and long-lasting hydration – Jioh and Carrot extracts, with hydrating properties, have been combined with a unique complex of highly “quenching” active ingredients to continuously capture and retain water.
Strengthening of the barrier function – Acts on several levels to fight against water loss and maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance. It also consolidates the lipid barrier and strengthens the corneum layer to limit the loss of Natural Moisturizing Factors.
Repair, nutrition, protection and soothing effect – It is combined with Andiroba oil, Allantoin, and Phytosqualane, with emollient and soothing properties to repair, nourish, and bring comfort to the skin.
I have been using it every day and my dry itchy skin on the body is all soothed, calmed, and hydrated. I do use body oils and rick body creams for my dry body skin, which gets even more drier and tends to get itchy in fall and winter. Few body lotion keeps the skin hydrated for few hours and the time I am home or almost near the bedtime, skin feels dry and itchy, the causing factor might be the dry indoor’s or anything but the body cream should be able enough to keep the skin hydrated for at least 24 hours. So my main concerns are hydration, hydration, and full day hydration and when it comes with extra repair and nourishing properties, I am all in.
The skin has been feeling healthy, supple, and hydrated. The body cream has fresh, silky, and light non-sticky texture which instantly absorbs without leaving any residue. the scent is very fresh yet subtle and does make it a pleasure every morning I apply it. This would be a nice cream for all seasons due to its texture and feel, does not feels heavy.
Sisley Paris Restorative Body Cream is available at Holt Renfrew, Net-A-Porter, Sisley Paris Website, and Nordstrom.
