In 2021 Sisley presents its latest innovation Le Sculpteur. The first product designed to refine the silhouette with visible results from 14 days as the appearance of dimples is diminished and the skin looks and feels more firmed and toned. After 7 years of research and partnership with a specialized team led by Professor Christophe Magnan from the University of Paris, Sisley created this new scuplting care based on a patented innovation.
Women have grown tired of the concept of the “ideal body” and prescribed beauty standards. Today, they see their body as an ally, a vehicle for physical and mental well-being, a perfect partner able to embody health, energy and fulfilment. A new paradigm is emerging: a better body image for a better life. An effective product that supports a kinder, gentler, healthier approach to body image. Our body is a resource that we must preserve and respect, a lasting, daily asset that we love. This body changes and accompanies us throughout our lives.
Le Sculpteur is an intensive contouring care to shape and sculpt the look of your body as you choose and according to your needs, so you can feel good and achieve a harmonious silhouette.
From 14 days, the appearance of cellulite is diminished. Skin looks smoother, firmer and seemingly sculpted. Le Sculpteur is more than a traditional sculpting product; it “reshapes” the look of the contours and volumes of the body for a resculpted figure that looks more balanced and harmonious.With repeated application, the figure seems more defined, imperfections are minimized and the appearance of cellulite is diminished.The body, a source of physical and mental well-being, appears lastingly strengthened, toned and enhanced.
The unique gel-in-oil texture that allows the key ingredients to penetrate optimally. From application, the gel-in-oil emulsion provides a fresh sensation of well-being. It leaves a velvety finish and has an immediate shaping effect. It absorbs quickly into the skin so clothes can be worn immediately after application. Skin is left feeling softened, smoothed, nourished and more beautiful.
Apply Le Sculpteur morning and evening to the desired areas (legs, thighs, buttocks, stomach, hips, arms, etc.) and massage in until completely absorbed.
Two intense and complementary daytime and night-time actions combined with Sisley key ingredients: Pink Pepper oil, Caffeine, Cedrol, and White Ginger extract as well as Mandarin extract, Andiroba oil and exopolysaccharide derived from Plankton, help with promote sculpting and toning, gradually restoring balance to the figure for a more harmonious look.
To complement the action of Le Sculpteur, Sisley has developed a quick and effective two-step (stimulate and sculpt) massage technique that is specially adapted to its melting texture, which is absorbed rapidly. The first step to stimulate needs to performed before the product is applied, helps to “wake up” the skin and make it more receptive to the product. Use the fingertips to vigorously pinch the areas of concern. To sculpt apply the product, then on the legs, buttocks and hips: use both hands to make strong, dynamic presses up to the fold of the groin to stimulate. On the stomach and waist: place one hand on top of the other and use the fingertips to make deep clockwise circular motions about 2 to 4 in away from the navel.
