Anne Semonin, described as “Parisian Haute Couture for the skin” isn’t a brand I was familiar with but they’re 25 years in the business. A quick google shows that they’re in Caroline Hiron’s Hall of Fame (link); their facial sounds absolutely amazing. I’ve been using Anne Semonin Tissue Serum* and oh it is so good, and actually works!
The claims are:
“Remineralising, stimulating, ultra light, Tissue Serum addresses hydration levels, and tissue strength on delicate areas of the face.
An excellent localised treatment to help ease out fine lines for tired, lips and neck.
- Concentrated Seawater: containing all the active principles of the marine universe, including more than 20 trace elements, maintains hydration balance.
- Ginkgo Biloba: (named gold apricot tree) acts on blood circulation and oxygenation.
- Rose water: soothing, hydrating.
- Hydrolized Collagen: tones the skin”
I’ve been using this both day and night, and occasionally through the day when my eyes have been feeling tired. It’s incredibly soothing on the skin so it feels really nice on tired eyes. There’s a gentle tightening effect too. I love the texture of this, it feels slightly thicker than water but doesn’t run all over the place so it’s easy to drop the recommended 5 drops on the back of your hands then apply them onto the face and neck. These 5 drops go a long way.
It smells gorgeous, a delicate smell of roses which suits it perfectly. I have very sensitive skin but I’ve had no aggravation whatsoever with this. It sinks in easily and leaves no residue on the skin making it perfect for applying moisturiser over or you can just use the Tissue Serum by itself.
I have been using this for just over a week now and I’m already noticing a difference in my skin, my husband’s also commented about how nice my skin looks. It looks plumper and less tired, and much softer. I can’t believe the results in only a week, and I can’t believe it actually works. I’m very cynical about these things. It’s a great serum for dehydrated skin, skin in need of soothing and some TLC. Perfect for first signs of ageing or older skin too. This is a range I’ll definitely be looking into more.
Anne Semonin Tissue Serum isn’t cheap, it retails at £96 but it’s a brilliant treat and would make an excellent Mother’s Day present.
