Sisley, the luxury French skincare and cosmetics brand, invites you to immerse yourself in a truly indulgent experience with its signature Botanical Facial. We were lucky enough to try out their Lymphatic Draining Facial at their counter in House of Fraser.
My first thought was, how can a facial be relaxing in a department store?! And secondly, how can a facial drain fluids?
To my surprise, Elaine, one of the therapists in House of Fraser, took me to a private treatment room on the first floor. Complete with relaxing music and the scent of lavender, you’d think you were in a spa, not a busy store on Deansgate!
The facial, is more than just a facial as it offers a mini shoulder and hand massage too!
This sumptuous and cocooning ritual offers maximum mind and body relaxation for a complete state of tranquillity…I was so close to falling asleep!
Using Sisley’s award winning products the 45 minute treatment commences with a deep cleanse followed by a gentle yet thorough exfoliation to eliminate impurities.
Carefully designed lymphatic drainage massage techniques ease away facial tension and promote cellular regeneration.
One of Sisley’s 5 exclusive Phyto-Complex Essential oils is chosen by the therapist, according your skin’s needs, and is incorporated into the massage for the ultimate bespoke experience.
One of brands’ renowned skin saving face masks is then applied before an appropriate moisturiser is chosen by your therapist.
Skin is left nourished and revived while lines and wrinkles are smoothed; optimum hydration and tone is restored. This luxurious experience will leave you with an overall sense of wellbeing and the skin feels transformed to its natural glow.
I left the room and went to the hustle and bustle of the store feeling like I was floating! I was so relaxed I don’t know how I got home! It’s also important to keep your fluids up after the treatment to ensure that all the toxins can be drained from you system so that the facial can have the full effects.
Elaine recommends that you have a deep cleanse and facial every six weeks but while we can all afford to treat ourselves that frequently, you can buy the products to use at home.
