Beauty Review: Sisley’s Energizing Foaming Exfoliant

Product Tag Line:
Smoother, more radiant, youthful-looking skin with a refined texture.

Product Profile in short:
(as described on Sisley Website)
• stimulates and tones skin,
• refines skin texture,
• leaves skin feeling smoother and more supple,
• remineralizes
Smooth, supple, toned skin.

What’s Inside:
* micro-spheres “which work gently to eliminate surface dead cells and roughness”
* essential oils and plants extracts “to help improve the appearance of the skin”
Plants extracts:
- Gentian
- Horsetail
- Lavender
- Rosemary
- Saponin

Close-up on Active Ingredients:
Propylene Glycol- humectant and emulsification agent
Sodium Laureth Sulfate – surfactant characterized by excellent foaming and low skin irritation properties. Some sources claim that it is a potential carcinogen however this has not been confirmed. (see CTFA response to the rumours)
Polyethylene –exfoliating spheres
Potassium Lauryl Sulfate - surfactant
Cocamidopropyl Betaine - derived from the fatty acids of coconut oil, combined with alcohol and betaine, mild cleansing and foaming agent, emulsifier, surfectant
Zea Mays (Corn) Starch is usually added to creams and lotion to give a powdery feel to your skin on drying
Cetearyl Alcohol – used as emulsion stabilizer, emollient, thickening agent and carrying agent for other ingredients
Hydrogenated Castor Oil – polyethylene glycol naturally derived from castor oil and is a solubilizer, foam stabilizer and an emulsifier.
PEG-40 Glyceryl Cocoate conditioning, cleansing agent derived from coconut.
Sodium Chloride

Mineral oil – occlusive
Saponaria officinalis Extract has surfactant, lathering, antibacterial properties
Gentiana Lutea Extract has anti-oxidant properties, anti-inflammatory effects and is used to enhance skin’s healing ability
Equisetum Arvense Extract (Horsetail) -
rich in natural conditioning minerals, sulfur, amino acids, cysteine, flavone, saponine and some other good stuff. Stimulates skin’s regeneration, improves circulation, has a softening and smoothing effect.

Rosemary Leaf Oil – has antioxidant, anti-bacterial, refreshing and toning effects
Towards the very end of the list we find Lavender Oil – balances skin, stimulates cellular growth
As always the list is finished up with a couple Parabens

It is a bit of a pity that all the essential oils and extracts are so down at the bottom of the ingredient list.

Texture: Very nice, has really high foaming ability so you don’t need to use too much of the product Spheres are really very tiny.
Smell: Beautiful naturally herbal. Nice tones of lavender

I loved this exfoliant! It is a wonderful product that lets you combine a shower gel and a scrub. I have never tried a body exfoliant that would make my skin so silky and smooth to the touch. After using it skin feels already moisturized. It’s incredible.

It is also a double pleasure to use it due to an energizing delicious herbal smell.

Price Tag:
Around 70-80 $
