I have received several samples of Sisley Hydra-Global anti ageing cream with my purchases. So far, I have used up 10 ml, which lasted me for approximately 2 weeks of daily usage. The pump bottle of 40ml retails for $250.
My skin is oily but dehydrated and I’m in a constant chase for a product that will properly moisturize my skin. The closest to the holy grail was Diadermine Hydra Matt Cream. Sisley claims that Hydra-Global “helps restore optimum hydration normally found in young skin”. Sadly, the product fails to deliver.
I’ve started using Hydra-Global immediately after I have spent Diadermine cream, so my skin was at its best when it comes to the moisture level. From then onwards, my skin got drier and drier. I cannot say that Hydra-Global dried out my skin, but it has certainly reversed the good effect of Diadermine.
The consistency of the moisturizer is extremely light – almost gel-like. It has a light scent that disappears upon application and it doesn’t bother me.
All in all, this was a great disappointment. I’ll probably use up the rest of the samples during summer, when I don’t need much moisture, but I wouldn’t recommend Hydra-Global in treating the dryness.
