I get very excited about promising-sounding skincare from lovely brands, and this is one extremely promising-sounding launch from a very lovely brand indeed.

Sisley’s Black Rose Precious Face Oill, €162 (I know, know), launches on August 16th as a companion to the existing Black Rose masque (which is a divine and genuinely performing product) and it’s for you if you’ve, well, got the cash, and are also possessed of a dry, mature skintype.

Considering Sisley is so up there with actives and botanicals, it’s a bit of a surprise that this is the first facial oil the brand has done. A dry oil – which basically means it’ll absorb rapidly – it’s all about restoring “comfort,
suppleness, vitality and renewed vibrancy to dry or dehydrated skin.”

With vitamin E, Phytosqualane to moisturise, omega-rich Camelina and Plum oils plus extract of Padina pavonica, which stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, as well as essential oils of Rose, Magnolia and Geranium, it sounds like quite the most divine dropper ever.

This is one I’m definitely gonna pop by the counter to sample. You?
