THE SKINCARE EXPRESS.
I’ve been really getting into using masks recently, and I’ve been using them a lot more than I
normally would, on Lisa’s advice – sometimes more than one a day. I’m not talking harsh, full
-of-chemicals masks but pick-me-up glowing skin masks that give skin the extra boost it
The Express Flower Gel Mask from Sisley is one that recently joined my growing collection,
and I especially love it because it acts so fast, and I don’t even have to wash it off. I pop it on
after cleansing in the morning, let it soak in for 3 minutes, and then moisturise. Easily done
when I’m in a morning rush.
The ‘flower’ in the name comes from the extracts of Lily and Iris, that have a powerful water
retaining capacity, giving you long lasting, hydrated skin. When I use this mask my skin doesn’t
start looking dull mid afternoon, instead it makes it feel – and look! – like I’ve been guzzling
water all day! (Which I try my hardest to do, too…)
With my highly sensitive facial skin, I thought that using the same mask multiple times a week
was a big no-no, but I’ve found that with Sisley masks – I’m a big advocate of the Black Rose
Cream Mask too – they work so gently that I needn’t worry about irritating my skin. Plus, they
smell so good and feel so luxurious on the skin that any excuse will do.
