As a working mother to a two-year-old, when it comes to my beauty regime, time is of the essence, and I look for time-saving cheats wherever possible, which is why I love Sisley’s Express Flower Gel, (£77.50, selfridges.com). A refreshing cream-gel mask designed for dehydrated, tired skin like mine during winter.
It contains a high concentration of moisturising and replenishing active floral ingredients including lily, rose and iris which all help to retain water, as well as extracts of sesame which is rich in vitamin F to help prevent water loss too. I apply this just before bed, and though you are meant to tissue off any excess after three minutes my skin has usually absorbed it all, and instantly looks more toned, brighter, and less tired. Best of all, it keeps my skin really hydrated overnight so I don’t look quite as frightening in the morning too.
