Sisley Paris Black Rose Precious Face Oil, Anti-Aging Nutrition, Review

I have been tweaking and changing my skincare for years and never seem to settle on a routine for a long time. The main reason behind this is to be able to test more products and share my thoughts with you. After the testing phase is over, most of them are rather forgotten and I have to move onto the new ones. Despite all the product madness around my bathroom cupboards, there are some products which shine through and continue to stick around. Today it is about one of these products which I nowadays reach for every night, Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil.

Packaging

Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil comes in a very chic deep violet glass bottle with a pipette drop applicator. I find the applicator great if you want personalized precision on your routine. I have experimented with different counts of drops and for found out that my face needs around 5 drops each time. With pumps it is usually hard to adjust the amount. The bottle offers a twist closure.

Application

I like applying my facial oils after spraying a hydrating mist (currently using Chanel Hydra Beauty Essense Mist). I use the pipette drop applicator to get 4-5 drops inside my palm and apply it while giving my face a short massage. I especially go over dry patches between my eye brows and around my nose. It is recommended to use it twice a day. I have tested it in the morning before my foundation and found that Sisley Paris Black Rose Precious Face Oil indeed absorbed into the skin rather fast leaving a smooth canvas to work the foundation on. That said my preferred application is at night when I know that my skin regenerates itself and can get the most out of its anti-aging benefits.

Product

I see Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil as a all rounder. It has toning, hydrating, soothing, nourishing, anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties all at once. I apply 4-5 drops at night and in the morning my skin feels plumped, smooth and hydrated. I used it over a few weeks course especially concentrated on my dry spots and I can clearly see that they improved a lot. For example the dry patch between my eye brows, which always look flaky after I apply the foundation is more or less gone.

Two things to note which are important for me, although it is an oil, it doesn't look greasy and it didn't trigger my underlying acne problems until now. Also I have a sensitive nose and usually I stay away from aromatic oil scents, to the point that if they are too strong, I can't sleep after putting them on. Sisley Black Rose smells like aromatic oil but the smell in this case is divine. The ingredient list is not very long but it has big guns in there such as Squalane an antioxidant-rich, age-fighting emollient, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil with high levels of Omega-3, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract with antioxidant qualities and many other essential oils for nourishing and protection.


Ingredients

Squalane, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Avocado Oil Unsaponifiables, Tocopherol, Padina Pavonica Thallus Extract, Rose Extract, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Michelia Alba Leaf Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Jojoba Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil.

  1. I looove this one so much! I am halfway through my bottle, and the thought of running out makes me hyperventilate a little. Glad to hear you like it, too! It doesn't have that strong of a scent in my book, either, which is great because fragrance is something I prefer to do without :)

  2. This sounds amazing. I'm always really interested when bloggers who test a lot of products, tell about the stuff that survives the initial testing. Thanks for this, I will see if I can grab a sample or test at a counter.

  3. The bottle looks so pretty! I love face oils but only in my nighttime routine. I have combo skin and I find that if I use an oil in the morning I get oilier through the day so I only stick with nighttime. I'm currently using up a Tarte Maracuja oil which is pretty nice.

    I can tell this oil works: squalene! I've been using HABA pure squalene for years as a skin booster, you have just inspired me to re-start the HABA again (it's a fraction of the Sisley price). Thanks for the review!

  5. Eeek! It sounds awesome, but the price is making me feel faint. If you use 4-5 drops each time, 2x a day, how long do you think a bottle will last? Right now, I'm using the Josie Maran Argan Light Oil and love it - the regular version is too heavy for me, but I like this one. I put it on at night, on top of creams, and it calms my skin down and seals in moisture, so when I wake up, my face is soft and hydrated.

  6. I buy pure squalene, 120 ml for $15.

  8. I love, love, love using oils on my face and body. I love Madame Heng, a beautiful dry oil from Thailand (I'd be more than happy to send you a bottle), Perricone MD chia oil, Nude. Alverde has a great budget option.
    Body oils: Caudalie, Sephora and Nuxe (although the ingredients of two latter ones are not perfect).
    The best budget option- Hipp. Just try it.
    Great budget options: Alverde, Babydream and Isana in the spray bottle.
    Cleansing oils: Body Shop Camomile for the face (again, ingredients could be better but it does the job), Kneipp and Isana for the body.

  9. As a face oil I'm sticking with Clarins Blue Orchid, which does wonders on my skin as well. Since I have rather normal skin that tends to lean more towards the drier side of the spectrum during the colder months, I don't feel like spending so much money on a face oil. I've heard many many great things about it though ... I can't deny that I'm curious nonetheless!

  10. I am in awe of your list and how many oils you have tried so far. I just started testing a few more and will be writing about them soon. I am very curious of Madame Heng, thanks so much for your offer. I would love to try it indeed! I love dry oils.
    Thanks so much for all the lovely options you listed here!

  11. Hi Alice,
    I will review Clarins Black Orchid soon, too. I am glad to hear you like it. The thing about Sisley is that, it is not only facial oil but really lots of things in one product, so I think it justifies the price tag. You may want to check with you counter and see if they have a sample for you.

  12. Hi Sulee,
    which product would you recommend us? I would like to try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It really smells divine, although I am not big on some essential oil smells in general. Like Ylang Ylang I think, is too much for me.

  14. Email me with your details and I'll be more than happy to share some oil love:-)

  15. Hi Katherine,
    It is hard to say but I imagine it lasts months, like maybe 6 months? Just a guess really. I will let you know in a few more months because I am indeed using it each night and some mornings regularly :-) To mix it with other skin care is also a good idea. Oils are really very versatile, this is why I like them so much.

  16. Now I am intrigued of HABA, I might be travelling to Japan soon so would you recommend me pick a bottle. I see though it is also quiet expensive, seeing it is just a moisturizer, so one needs more than 4 drops and 30 ml is like 60€...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am glad it is helpful. I think the best way to go with expensive skin care is to test before buy. I think you will like it though, it is divine!

  18. Although I am not getting oilier so soon, I also like to use these more at nights. I will look into Tarte although we don't have this brand here in Germany. Maracuja oil sounds very interesting!

  19. Hi Sunny, yes read your review (and linked above). I know you are not using it everyday (at least this is what you wrote) and I do use it so often, I might have to replace it sooner than I think *hyperventilates too*

  20. Thanks so much!
    Ugh, oh, it is not easy to see your e-mail. Could you please write me an e-mail. You find the address on the right bar, it looks like an envelope :-)

  21. Thanks so much for the review! I've heard nothing but good things about this face oil- maybe worth saving up for :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks, Sara! No I don't use it every day. I have several oils so I rotate ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for stopping by. Especially if you have dry skin or dry patches, this is something to check!

  24. I also like the Caudalie Vinosource one. The thing is a lot of the oils that I like do have essential oils, so I'm not sure you'll be on board with those. The Vinosource one doesn't have a strong smell tho.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Actually i've found there s a big difference between the ylang ylang flower and if the essential oil is distilled from other parts of the plant. Just like English lavender and French lavender smell completely different. So maybe don't close the chapter on that yet! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is a great nerdy tip and very much appreciated!
    I won't run away from now on when something has Ylang Ylang in there ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have to check Vinosource, thanks very much for the recommendation. Xox

  28. I started using oils about en year ago. I've good experiences with cactus oil (not of a brand) and Otto rose oil of Dr organic. Very calming and nurishing for my skin, At the moment I'm using rosehipseed oil (because of the vitamins c) but I'm not very fond of that one. I use castor oil in my hair and jojoba oil on my body (very hydrating).

  29. I bought my bottle from Making Cosmetics. They mostly sell raw ingredients/supplies, but they have finished products as well. Another cosmetic supply site is Lotioncrafter.

    Hi Sara, the HABA Squalene you really don't need a lot, at all. The 0.5 oz bottle easily lasts me 2-3 months. You need 2-3 drops mixed with water/toner and spread over your face as a booster for moisture. The Squalene is pure, so too much would be too thick to spread and to tacky.

  31. Thanks for sharing, I will look into these.
