Sisley Botanical D-Tox Detoxifying Night Treatment: The Detox My Post-Holiday Skin Needed

During the last leg of my holiday over a month ago, my skin was already crying out for mercy. Sure I had the Brown Bottle 2.0 to help maintain my skin the best it could but after much flying, eating out, switching of water hardness, etc, my skin was tired. If I was ready to go home, you can say that my skin has packed its bags and is pretty much on its way out.

Now just before I left for the holiday, Sisley contacted me and asked me if I’d like to try their Botanical D-Tox Detoxifying Night Treatment. It sounded like a good serum to try out so I said oh why not. I didn’t realise how much I’d need it until I picked the bottle up from the PO box when I finally came back and after reading the description again, it really sounded like something my parched, dull and patchy skin needed. I don’t know anything about detoxifying the skin (does your liver does that too?) but I was ready to try anything.

Still, it’s one hell of a pricey product so most importantly, did it work?

Sisley’s Botanical D-Tox is a powerful 1 month treatment with highly concentrated plant extracts that have detoxifying properties to act globally on all 3 major levels of the skin’s detoxificaion chain. At the end of winter, at the beginning of spring, after pregnancy, fashion
week, burn out, accumulated jet lag and other sleepless nights, Botanical D-Tox is ‘the’ product to recharge skin’s batteries.

The serum is a light white lotion, spreads easily on the skin and absorbs quickly too. It smells good too of lavender, which isn’t just calming on my skin but also calming on the senses.

The first week I was back, my skin broke out. I was terribly heaty; my mouth developed ulcers, my skin was red and spotty and my hair was a dry mess of dead grass. First thing I tackled was my skin. On top of trying this out for a month, I also increased my water intake and cut as much greasy food out of my diet as possible.

After a couple of weeks of using the serum, my skin calmed way down. The breakouts disappeared and my skin went back to normal. It’s not those kind of serums that brightens the skin, reduces hyperpigmentation or make it smooth like a baby’s bottom but it sure calmed my skin down. I usually scoff at products that claim that they detox this and detox that but the funny thing is, this actually did feel like detox for the skin by going back to the basics. After a month, I’m happy to say my skin is pretty much back to it’s pre-holiday state.

This reminds me a lot of Trilogy’s Very Gentle Calming Serum (formerly known as Calming Fluid), which is one of my favourite serums for calming sensitive and reactive skin. If you have the dough to spend, then I’d recommend you try out the Botanical D-Tox. It certainly gave my skin the boost and help it needed. However, if you’re on a budget, then Trilogy’s is a good one to stick to.

Now that it’s been 5 weeks, it’s time to stop using this serum and saving this for the next time my skin starts acting up again. I like my little green bottle of insurance because I never know when my skin’s going to start throwing a tanty again. *fingers crossed*

Sisley Botanical D-Tox Detoxifying Night Treatment

Sisley Botanical D-Tox Detoxifying Night Treatment retails at AU$230 for 30ml and is available at selected David Jones stores nationally.

What I like about it: Calmed the skin down almost right away and helped restore it to its original state in less than a month.

What I do not like about it: Gotta-sell-my-kidney-for-a-bottle expensive.

    I’m jealous Tine! :p my skin has just gone insane (just got married and went through some changes at work so all the stress of the past few months is coming out) and my skin is horrendous! The Trilogy fluid isn’t cutting it at the moment – it normally fixes my skin right up too – so I need some bigger guns. This might do it, but the price is a bit hurty…

      Ooooh congratulations Issy! :D x

      When skin goes insane, it’s a good idea to cut the amount of skincare products you use down to the basics. One time I had really stressful skin and I ended up only using Cetaphil’s cleanser and lotion (meant for the body). No serums, no eye cream, no toner, nothing. Did this for a couple of weeks and my skin calmed way down.

      Good luck! :)

    It’s really a holy grail product from Sisley but honestly saying Sisley is one of the brand I never step inside due to the expensive price. Haha!

      Haha don’t worry, I know what you mean. It wasn’t something I checked out before either due to the high price. But they do have really good products. The high price point is a pity.

        Hello, I do understand the observations made about the pricing of Sisley products. Our concept is to create high performance, high quality cosmetics using the very best in plant extracts and botanical essential oils. We don’t launch any product until independent testing confirms that it is the best of its kind available. Some products take years and years to perfect. Once you try a Sisley product, you will notice the difference on your skin. You can always pop along to a Sisley counter at David Jones and we would be happy to offer samples following an assessment of your skin and your concerns.

          Thanks for letting us know!

    Hi girls…
    I am now trying this serum out and I love Sisley. I work in the industry so I had an opportunity to go to a meeting with them and they were showing me all Sisley products. I love the smell of them all. My super sensitive skin loves anything Sisley. Its the one and only product I have ever seen the microcirculation really work (my skin goes tomato red after washing and drying and Im super super gentle) and after a minute or two I apply my Cream hydratante with Cucumber or Emulsion Ecologique it has the most beautiful beigey color. Never was itchy or anything else. I love it. The price hurts my heart but Mr. and Mrs. D’Ornano really deserve every single penny for their inventions. PS: Eau de Soir is so sexy and different… Sisley is my beauty secret :)

      Glad you enjoy Sisley! I’m dipping my toes in the brand and I have to say, I’m loving the products they’re coming out with. :)

    hi, I enjoy reading your review. After moving from Indonesia to Germany, my oily skin had been more reactive, not just acne flare but my skin was also cracked and totally dry. Then, I went to limbergplatz, unable to speak German, sisley BA approached me and gave me 3 samples including detoxyfying night treatment. At first I was skeptical about it, but after only one time use, my skin became totally smooth, I was shocked knowing the real surprise on internet, not sure if my husband will buy it for me. But if you have the money, the serum really works wonder, go buy it!
