SISLEY Ecological Compound 125ml
I’ve almost finished this, so it’s time for a review. Ecological Compound is one of SISLEY’s more popular products. I’ve seen it more than once in the annual rankings of Japanese beauty magazines. It’s a light moisturising fluid, and although it comes touted with a list of additional benefits, it’s basically just a moisturiser.
I’m still not quite sure what I think of this product, but I know I won’t be repurchasing.

SISLEY Hydra-Global 40g／40ml
I finished this a few nights ago, but I’ve been too absorbed with tinkering with Lightroom (mine is new and shiny, and the approach is quite different to Photoshop so the learning curve is definitely there) to be interested in writing this up. And also, well, ‘okay’ just about sums my thoughts on this moisturiser up, so it is definitely not the most inspiring of subjects. It is not a bad moisturiser, and there are things I like about it, but there is, for me, nothing distinctive about it that sets it apart from the many, many other moisturisers available.
Hydra-Global is one of SISLEY’s newer products (although it is already a few years old, I bought mine perhaps two years ago?), and occupies a somewhat awkward position in the lineup. The fancy name is something of a misnomer, and it’s neither intensely hydrating nor anti-aging. I feel there is little to differentiate it from a ‘basic’ moisturiser.

SISLEY Botanical Night Complex 30ml
The Botanical Night Complex is a treatment meant to be used for ten consecutive nights every month. (It’s suggested, in the accompanying leaflet, it be used the ten days following the end of the menstrual period, but I don’t really follow that because I’m terrible at counting and lose count of the days too easily; it’s easier to start on the first day of the month.) It contains a blend of botanical extracts and essential oils to restore vitality and radiance to dull, tired skin. It’s night use only, and during those ten nights it replaces the regular skin care routine, i.e. toner, moisturiser, etc.
I think, as far as I can tell given the opaque (and rather ugly) green bottle, I’m on my last ten nights, so it’s time to write something about it. :D

SISLEY Lyslait 250ml
SISLEY Lyslait is my favourite cleansing milk! ♥ (So far.) (ﾉω｀*)んふふ♪ The price is not nice at all, but I love how it feels. I’ve also used the Cleansing Milk with Sage, also from SISLEY, but I like Lyslait better. It’s just really, really nice! If only I could ignore the price, haha… ((´∀｀*))ヶﾗヶﾗ
(And um, I usually try to write more, but cleansing milk is just really not exciting in the way necessities usually aren’t so words are failing me at the moment. And yes, this is just a filler! (●´ω｀●)ゞエヘヘ)

SISLEY Express Flower Gel 60ml
I ♥♥♥ SISLEY (see the number of ♥s? (ノ∀≦。)ノぷぷ-ｯ笑) but this (leave on) hydrating mask is not one of my favourite products. I used up a tube a few years ago without feeling impressed. I must be the only dissenter amidst all the raves! Σ（￣□￣；） I was left with the lasting impression of pasty glue and suspecting I’d been given an “off” tube. But I bought a new tube, this one, in a moment of insanity last year… and it’s still exactly as I remembered it. 彡(-ω-；)彡ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
Oh, it seems like WordPress’ image fading problem fixed itself, YAY! Hopefully it stays fixed.

SISLEY Floral Toning Lotion 250ml
I’ve realised that for some reason WordPress is fading out my images again, which is very annoying. (。-`ω´-) I’ll spare you the grumbling about colour profiles and HTML code additions here. I thought I’d fixed the issue previously, but it looks like it’s back. (－＂－怒) I’m hoping it will go away by itself soon! (人●´ω｀●)
SISLEY Floral Toning Lotion is a gentle, alcohol-free toner. I like it, but I feel silly for repurchasing (a few times) such an expensive, but basic toner when there are many good, cheaper ones available. I still need to finish my spare bottle first though… 彡(-ω-；)彡ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
