Some time late last year, I had the opportunity to meet the good Doctor behind the Dr. Sebagh brand. He was the one who confirmed my theory about using 2 face serums together, if you might remember. I find it absolutely fascinating meeting the person behind the brand because they are usually so passionate about their product that you get all caught up in their excitement too.
Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh was in town to launch his new Face and Neck Cream – Supreme Night Secret. A night cream, naturally 🙂 Despite having offices in London and Paris, this famous cosmetic surgeon to the stars has a very down to earth belief that beauty is not about looking perfect, but about looking youthful and healthy for your age <- key word. He holds to the belief that there are no miracle skincare or creams, but that good skincare can make a difference to the skin. Which might be why he set up the Dr. Sebagh skincare range 🙂
This cream is a new addition to this range of luxury skincare and I’ve been taking it for a spin so head on for my thoughts on this rich cream designed for all skin types.
The packaging is impressively solid with a good heft. I am superficial like that 🙂
The cream is tinted a light pink and has a soft floral fragrance that is quite pleasant. The texture is light but rich, if you know my meaning, and it absorbs very quickly into the skin.
I find the texture luxurious. It makes my skin feel soft and plumped up after use. Dr. Sebagh says that his cream contains the latest biotech cosmetic ingredients to work with the body’s chronological clock to work at night to regenerate the skin. Its also incidentally the first night cream in the Dr. Sebagh range of skincare and contains anti-oxidants to combat the stress and oxidants accumulated on your skin throughout the day.
But I ran into a bit of trouble in paradise. This cream, lovely as my skin feels after use, starts breaking me out after a few nights. If I use it once or twice sparingly, it feels lovely and my skin looks lovely the morning after I use this. But if I go for about 3-4 days straight, I get small little spots.
I stopped this cream, treated the spots (which thankfully weren’t cystic acne) and then went back to this cream. Did it twice. Same thing. Great for about 2 nights and by the 3rd I start getting spots 🙁 I do believe it might just be too rich for me or that my skin is too young for this anti-aging cream 😉
So what is a girl to do? I use it for my neck instead! No breakouts or spots and the skin on my neck feels lovely and velvety and smooth and all sorts of luxurious. I’ll have the neck of a 20 year old even if I don’t have the face of one LOL! 😀 I do think its a bit of a waste for me to lavish this cream just on my neck so I’m going to pass it to my Mom who will likely benefit more from it than I will. But I might just decant a little of this cream to keep my neck in shape 😉
In a nutshell
The Dr. Sebagh Supreme Night Secret Face & Neck Cream is a light textured luxurious rich night cream which has a lovely delicate floral scent. It is not oily and absorbs very quickly into the skin leaving it feeling soft and velvety. For my face, I could only use this cream very sparingly because regular use make me break out a little. However, for my neck, it feels lovely and keeps ageing at bay! I believe that this may benefit people with more matured skin better than the young which is a relief since it does cost a pretty penny!
Pros: Light velvety texture, Lovely light floral scent is relaxing, Absorbs into the skin without feeling oily or sticky, Skin feels soft and velvety after use and skin on neck looks better with regular use
Cons: Pricey, May suit more matured skin better as it broke me out with regular use
Here are the ingredients for anyone interested
A bit of a stretch but has anyone tried anything from Dr. Sebagh that you’d like to share? I’ve heard some good things about the Youth Maintenance Serum and the Rose de Vie serum as well so I’m sort of keen on those seeing as I’m still eyeing up face oils/serums. The prices do do some serious harm to the wallet though so its not for everyone 😛
