Right after I graduated I decided to treat myself with a proper facial. I booked one via Treatwell and a couple of days later I went in and my lord, it was absolutely incredible. The facial was build up with all kinds of products from a brand called Maria Galland. It’s a brand I had never heard of before, but throughout the facial I fell in love with it. When the facial was done the facial-lady (what do you call someone like that again?) told me a little bit more about the Maria Galland products and I ended up buying the Maria Galland 64 Lotion Soyeuse Silky-Soft Lotion. A product that was going to change my skincare game forever. In today’s review I’m going to tell you guys all about it!
The Maria Galland 64 Lotion Soyeuse Silky-Soft Lotion comes in a white bottle with a beige pump on top of it. The bottle is packaged in a white box. Everything looks very clean and professional in my opinion. I absolutely love that. The bottle I bought contains 200 ml of product. At first that didn’t sound like a whole lot to me, but now that I’ve been using it for a couple of months I have realised this bottle is going to last me forever. A little bit of this product goes a very, very long way. But I’ll tell you guys more about that later.
Aesthetic-wise everything about this bottle is just absolutely gorgeous. I have placed it on my desk, right in front of me. Whenever I look at it, it makes me feel happy. It’s just so clean and simplistic, it’s very pleasing to the eye. It looks like it comes right out of a beauty-salon and it actually does.
The Maria Galland products don’t just have names, they are also all numbered. I was told that this is because Maria Galland was friends with Coco Chanel. When Maria created this product, Chanel came out with their ‘number 5’ perfume, so Maria decided to number her products as well.

Enough about the packaging and all of that fun stuff, let’s talk about this product. I think lots of you are questioning what this even is and I’m going to tell you. The Lotion Soyeuse Silky-Soft Lotion is a toner. It balanced the PH-levels in your skin and it also supplies a high level of moisture and adds fullness to the skin. This still might sound pretty vague, so in a nutshell: it’s a toner in gel-form. You can use it after cleansing or after using water on your skin to remove limestone from the skin and make your skin feel comfortable again.
I have combination to oily skin and after taking a shower or a bath my skin feels extremely uncomfortable. It feels tight and sometimes that is even painful. By using this product on my skin, the PH-level gets back to normal again and that tight feeling will be gone.
Another benefit of removing limestone from your skin before moisturising is that your moisturiser will be way more effective. If you don’t remove limestone from your skin beforehand, all of the power in your moisturiser will be sucked up by the limestone and your skin won’t be as moisturised as you hoped it would be. So all in all this product is pretty essential in any skincare routine. I really don’t get how I have lived so long without it.
The thing I love about this lotion is that it’s super easy to use. I use one tiny little pump and this is more than enough to cover my entire face with product. I do have a reasonably small face, but I’m sure one pump is enough for bigger faces as well. I have been using this bottle twice a day, every single day for about two months now and the bottle is still like 90% full. How crazy is that?!
Anyway, what I do is I get all of my cleansing done -day or night- and the last step in my cleansing routine is applying this lotion. I take a small pump, rub it in between my hands and apply it straight to my face. It dries really quickly so just a quick minute later you can already go in with your moisturiser and be done with it.
I have noticed such big differences since I started using this product. At first I was a bit hesitant if it was really going to make a difference, but it does. I’m so glad I bought this product. Every single time I apply it, I feel my skin becoming more comfortable. I actually feel like my skin has become more smooth and even ever since I started using it and my moisturisers are way more effective now. My skin feels more moisturised than ever and it doesn’t look as dull as it used to. I’m absolutely mind-blown by this product. Oh, and I can’t forget about the smell. This stuff smells incredible!
All in all I’m a huge, huge, huuuuuge fan of the Maria Galland 64 Lotion Soyuese and I think everyone should have this in their lives. Whether you have combination to oily skin like me, or you have dry skin, it works amazing for everyone. I literally won’t ever stop using this product. It has changed my skincare life forever. Good bye to uncomfortable and tight skin- hello to comfortable and healthy skin!
And that basically concludes today’s post. Thank you guys so much for reading it and be sure to let me know if you have any experience with the Maria Galland brand already!
