More and more cosmetic brands is coming out with a treatment lotion- a product used after toner before the serum. So what does the treatment lotion do? It is the first step before applying the serum, which helps to absorb the serum and moisturizer quickly and deeper.
In the western world, this seems like a new steps but in Asia it has been part of skin care routine for a long time. The question is, will you take additional time and steps to have best skin ever?
This season, Sisley launched Sisleya Essential Skin Care Lotion, a treatment lotion.
Immediately, the skin is re-plumped, radiant and better prepared to benefit from the daily skin care products. After 4 weeks, signs of aging are reduced and skin appears visibly younger.

Ginkgo biloba extract: helps tone the skin, anti-oxidant
Alkekengi Calyx extract: helps protect the skin, thanks to its anti-free radical action

My own results:
First impression: The texture of this lotion feels very light and soon I used it on the skin, it turns into liquid within 30 seconds and penetrates the skin.
Second impression: The scent of this lotion is very light and I have to said it’s very pleasant and not over powering. After 30 seconds of application, I honestly didn’t see any major difference with the Sisley Essential Skin Care lotion. However, I have only used the samples for 3 days.
