I'm not sure about adolescents these days, but back when I was a teen, I was much more into my body care than skincare. As I was getting more exposed to luxury high tech beauty brands, I discovered Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care, which was indeed a splurge. However, it has been working well on my body so I've continued repurchasing and using it for years religiously already. Oh my, this makes me realise the fact that I'm getting old! Aw :'(
The important part to note first is not to get fooled by its name slimming. Yes, it does help with contouring the body as long as you are on a good diet and exercise routine, but it doesn't take away all the fats or reduce water retention in your body dramatically just like that. I'm just mentioning this for those who tend to fully trust however the beauty companies advertise :3.
Bitter Orange blossom, caffeine, cedrol, coriander fruit, rice, and lotus (contouring active ingredients)
Shea butter: nourishes, soothes, heals, softens, and protects
Colza oil: nourishes
Rosemary (essential oil): purifies and stimulates
Sage (essential oil): stimulates
Lavender (essential oil): soothes and balances
Marjoram (essential oil): stimulates
Soy: firms and stimulates collagen synthesis
Alkekengi Calyx: fights against oxidant stress
Plant glycerin: hydrates
Although Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care contains essential oils, it doesn't smell particularly strongly of essential oils. If you are prone to be sensitive to strong essential oil scents, you will actually appreciate the body lotion more as it smells like Sisley; therapeutic subtle and soothing scent. And the best part that I like about the scent is that it doesn't leave any long-lasting standing out smell to your body, so it doesn't interfere the perfume that I normally wear.
Phyto-Svelt Global is an intensive anti-cellulite* contouring body care product providing comprehensive action on curves and stubborn cellulite. A unique combination of plant-based active ingredients for targeted effectiveness and visible results: cellulite deposits are smoothed and the skin is firmer. The hips, thighs, and stomach are visibly contoured, the body looks as if it has been resculpted, and the silhouette is more svelte. Phyto-Svelt Global is a fine, fresh, and silky emulsion that is quickly absorbed, allowing you to get dress soon after application. As soon as it is applied, it creates a sense of freshness and well-being, leaving legs feeling lighter. The body appears as if it has been resculpted, the silhouette is svelter. * refers to the appearance of cellulite.
As soon as it is applied, Phyto-Svelt Glboal creates a sense of freshness and well-being, leaving legs feeling lighter. Skin is hydrated, more toned, firmer, and left feeling renewed. Day after day, the body is resculpted and the silhouette is more svel
Apply the product twice a day on problem areas and massage in until it has been completely absorbed.
Consistency & Effectiveness
The texture of Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care has been one of the main reasons for my continuous repurchase, and I've personally found it very workable. It has a light and fast-absorbing consistency overall without any cooling or warming sensation. There's no strong alcohol feel unlike those lightweight formula body gels and lotions on the market.
It provides sufficient hydration especially for Summer when the weather is rather hot and humid, which explains why it was my go-to body care product when I was living in Australia. As the air is kind of dry in WA since I moved to the states, I've been mixing oils into the body lotion and spending more time on massaging my concerned areas for better efficacy. I like to use Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil most days for added hydration and protection, and green arabica coffee bean oil when I'm near my cycle or losing weight.
- On the thighs
work upward from the knees to the hips using a light, hand-over-hand smoothing motion, then smooth in deeply to improve circulation. (If necessary, this motion may be used on the arms as well.)
with two hands, encircle the thighs, pressing firmly from bottom to top to stimulate drainage.
- On the stomach and/or buttocks
- with flat hands, massage in the product using circular movements, moving from the center toward the exterior, covering the hips.
And I always use Elemis body skin brush thoroughly before the shower or bath for boosted blood circulation and better skin texture. It's Winter here, but I've been enjoying using Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care on the days when I wear tights or leggings as it doesn't stick to the garment or make it difficult to pull it up when wearing. Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care works well like any other extravagant body firming/slimming products on the market, but the Sisley one still fits better for my lifestyle. It doesn't work miraculously like a laser treatment result that you see at the dermatologist's, but it's great for preventing loose skin and unwanted cellulite, which helps keep skin smooth. As long as you implement a healthy lifestyle, Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global Intensive Slimming Body Care also helps with correcting mild cellulite based on my experience whether you got it for sitting too long in the office or from a temporary lack of exercise.
