Today I’d like to introduce you to the Sisley Ecological Compound Day and Night;

What They Say:

Ecological Compound is an essential revitalizing and hydrating skincare product. Formulated with a synergistic compound of plants (centella asiatica, ginseng, rosemary, hops, and horsetail) selected for their stimulating and revitalizing actions, its composition hydrates the epidermis, and restores comfort and radiance. It also helps skin fight environmental stress (pollution, cigarette smoke etc) and restores the skin to a more toned, supple state enabling it to get maximum benefit from future treatments. Its fluid, non-greasy texture leaves skin with a matte appearance. 

RRP: $165 (50ml) – Available from David Jones

What I Say:

The Ecological Compound is a very multi-functional product, suitable for both men and women for use both day and night. In fact, it is the brands flagship product and an international best seller!

The Compound has been developed to stimulate and regulate the skin when and where needed and hence the skin draws vital elements and ingredients from the cream depending on its condition at the time.

It works to combat external stress factors including pollution, cigarette smoke and UV rays, while helping to restore, tone, and keep the skin supple and elastic, all while helping it to rebuild its own defence system.

The compound is essentially a very light fluid moisturiser and it contains among others Ginseng to revitalise the skin, Rosemary and Hops to stimulate, Horsetail to re-mineralise and tone, and Centella Asiatica to regenerate and revitalise the skin.

Unfortunately the Compound doesn’t contain any SPF, which would have been ideal. However, I suspect that SPF is often what makes my skin break out, so on the other hand I actually don’t mind. Whenever I need it I can just use another SPF on top. It also means that it is suitable for use as a night cream, although personally I prefer to use it just as a day cream and use a thicker cream at night!

Again, the Compound is a very light moisturiser, and hence it absorbs instantly into the skin, leaving it feels incredibly thoroughly moisturised and so soft and smooth and with a matte feeling and a nice glowing sheen. It leaves absolutely no greasiness or stickiness behind. It is absolutely perfect for my combination skin, and works brilliantly under makeup.

Often intense moisturisers make my skin feel congested and make it break out, but I am very pleased to say that hasn’t been the case with the Ecological Compound for the month or so that I’ve been using it. On the contrary, I actually feel that my skin is not only thoroughly nourished, it actually also seems to have normalised, so that it feels less greasy. And overall my skin simply feels and looks healthy and radiant!

At $165 for 50ml this is without a doubt one of the more expensive moisturisers that I have used. However, this moisturiser not only feels so lovely on the skin, it is also as made for my skin – as most often I find that moisturiser either provide too much moisture and leave my skin greasy and congested, or alternatively not sufficient moisture – but this Sisley Ecological Compound Day and Night has managed to get the balance just right, and for that, the high price is more than worthwhile!
