All Day All Year is, together with Creme Reparatrice, Floral Toning Lotion, Express Flower Gel and Lyslait, one of Sisleyís signature products. Iíve been listening the glowing reviews for years and Iíve always wanted to try it, but I could never get a sample so I didnít want to risk.
The full-size All Day All Year comes in a 50ml pump bottle and retails for $398. Luckily, I got 5 GWP samples, each containing 10 ml, so I practically got the full-size for free. Iíve been using it once per day (in the morning) for two weeks and I havenít even spent a half of the tube.
All Day All Year has a slightly unpleasant scent, which disappears upon the application.
When I squeeze it out, the consistency feels whipped, but when I spread it on the face, it feels thick, greasy and sticky (like a heavy sunscreen). However, half a minute after it dries up to a matte finish. I use it underneath the make-up Ė it is a great base to put underneath the foundation.
All Day All Year boasts with sunscreen, but it never says which SPF it has, so I wouldnít put much confidence in it to protect me from UVA/UVB rays.
Ever since Iíve started using this (in conjuncture with some other products Ė Soapless Facial Cleansing Bar, Ecological Compound, Sisleya Radiance Serum and Floral Toning Lotion), my skin feels and looks great Ė soft, radiant skin with minimal oiliness and no dehydration.
I was a bit worried that it will break me out, but luckily it didnít.
I recommend this cream as a basic day-time moisturizer because it protects my skin primarily from the environmental damage (cold and dry air). I trust the claim about UV filters to protect me during cloudy winter days, but it wouldnít be my go to sunscreen in spring, summer or fall. The only drawback is the price, which is steep for something so basic, but I hope that the samples will last me a long time.

I would love to say All Day All Year does not work due to it being so expensive but I have to be honest and say it's one of the best moisturisers I have ever used. I use it very sparingly and although I have a combination skin it soaks in straight away and doesn't leave any greasy residue. The best thing about the product is the immediate clarity and youthfulness it brings to your skin. Use it for a week and it seems to give you a younger looking skin that has more luminosity. I think that ADAY is an excellent product and I will continue to use it despite it's heavy price tag. For those disbelievers, use it for just one day in the morning and then check your skin when you get home after work - you will see noticeable improvements and over time a much 'clearer' and youthful complexion.
I am a great fun of Sisley products but I have to admit that this is an average product. Nothing impressive happened to my skin while I was using it, and the price is really WOW..In my opinion, this product is totally unnecessary.
This is a thick moisturizer, but it's not greasy at all. My skin absorbs it nicely, makes my skin soft and luminous. I do apply another sunscreen on top of it. I was considering to buy it full size (using some samples of it right now), but for the price, I think I'd pass.
Okay, yes this stuff is ridiculously expensive for 50ml. Yet after hearing a couple of celebrities mention this stuff I decided to give it a try and see what all the fuss was about. I like that fact this contains sunscreen, so I don't feel the need to use a sunscreen on top (but a lot of moisturizers contain sunscreen so not sure if thats anything particularly special). The consistency of this is nice and suits my personal preference of a thick, non-sticky, cream. I really like the condition this leaves my skin in-no shine or oliness. The ingredients include hazlenut, and being allergic to nuts I wasn't sure if this would bring me out in some kinda rash but actually, if anything, this moisturizer has made my skin improve and be less effected by heat bumps and external factors. I still can't get over the extortionate price tag though. Seems a bit unnecessary, and therefore I definitely can't give this product the full five lippies. I like this product, but don't think I could justify buying it again.
I would have never purchased this product if it wasn't for my friend who has fabulous skin and she recommened that I use this plus the Ecological Compund. What also drew me into the Sisley line is that its based on natural/plant extracts. ADAY is a good moisturizer (for my skin type - normal/combination - oilier in the summer, drier in the winter) during the summer months and I can go without putting Ecological under it (but in the winter, I need to layer both during the day). This is a nice cream texture with a very pleasant smell. It provides 8 hour protection for my skin which is fantastic but yes, its not for those who are avid sun-bathers. Its for those who are city-goers only due to the low spf factor. I love it because i'm a total city gal and am not in the sun that much. Upon using this cream my skin does feel very smooth, supple, radiant and protected. It also creates a great canvas for foundation application and/or additional sunscreen if needed. It retails for $475 Cdn (before taxes) for a 50ml bottle, so its super pricey but I will buy this again without hesitation. This is my staple skincare product.
Hands down one of the best skin care products on earth! I've used All Day All Year for almost 2 years now and can honestly say that it's a must-try for most and must-have for me. I love the SPF 8 in the moisturizer, it's low enough that it's comfortable to wear all day all year and high enough on most days to provide protection for those of us who hate to /cannot remember to put on separate sun protection. Here's what I can confidently say this product delivers: sun protection, mid-level hydration (more details later). Here's what I think it also provides: some anti-aging capabilities as my skin hasn't changed much, evening out skin tone.
Now what it doesn't do:
Like I said earlier, it only provides mid-level hydration - meaning it's good enough for late-spring to early-fall weather in mild climate zones, but beyond that you will need additional hydration. That essentially means using this product alone is not enough in most cases!
Also, I think it's not powerful enough to noticeably reverse any aging. I've tried to test that on small wrinkles and limited results.
This product is meant to Protect, which it does an amazing job at, but protect is all it does for the most part. Given the outrageous price I wish it did more than that or there exists a cheaper product that does the same. Until then I will repurchase this.
I have huge mixed feelings about this product. On the one hand, as other reviewers have noted, it IS a good moisturizer and my skin feels lovely and soft after using it. I have no problem applying make-up immediately after use and there is no visible trace of oiliness on the skin in spite of the numerous chemicals contained within. On the other hand, it's not a great protector against sun damage as the SPF factor is quite low and there seems to be some correlation, at least in my case (combination skin), between using this product and getting cystic brakeouts.
The deciding factor for me is the quality/price ratio. While this product is a fairly good moisturizer, there are others out there that are better and more accessible price-wise.
It appears that all the Sisley SAs all over the world are trained not to explain their ingredients and what they can do for your skin individually, maybe they are all clueless. They are trained to tell customers that they have the "most advanced" technologies for making their products and their products can universally improve your skin conditions regardless what skin types you have, blah blah blah...
I got mine in a trip to Singapore.
I have used this ADAY for 2 months so far religiously every morning after washing my face and using toner, I really do not see any difference they claimed to be able to make on my skin. It does feel non-greasy, not heavy, feels just like any moisturizer and does moisturize skin well all day, neither did I get sun tan. It's really not something spectacular and does not do much to me, and with this price tag, I DO expect it to do more! I can still get this result with other products other brands offer with much lesser money, I guess I will just finish up this bottle and will not purchase it again.
In my opinion, all Sisley products are over-priced, some works well (like the hair products) and some are just so-so, will not buy anything from this brand again.
Updates: Lately, the 3rd month of using ADAY, I have noticed that my skin seems to be more even-toned, refreshed and brighter. I can feel that I can go out without putting makeups. I presume this is what ADAY does to me, because I only use ADAY during the daytime and basically do not put anything on my face after makeup remover and cleanser. Add 1 lippy.
Update: I guess it's been 7 months since I purchased ADAY. This summer, I go out jogging every evening for an hour or so. I get quite tan for not using sun screen, I'm not too worried about being tan, but definitely, for outdoor activities, you need an actual sun screen than this one.
This is an average moisturizer, i like its texture, non greasy n smooth. But after a year of using this, i werent impressed, it didnt prevent fine lines or make skin look better, my skin is normal as it was before. not worth the price.
