The Sisley Paris Beauty Subscription box is a new beauty subscription box from Sisley Paris! Each month you’ll receive 5 Sisley Paris beauty samples.

FYI – I’ve been posting a few December reviews late since I got a bit behind, but in this case, this box didn’t arrive until mid-January.

This month’s box is all about “The Winter Bundle.” The info card included gives a brief description of each item included, plus tips for usage:

Now, onto the items!

Sisley-December-2016-0007

Sisley Confort Extreme Day – .33 oz Value $43

This face cream is designed for extra dry skin – a perfect winter box selection! It’s a rich cream, but still absorbed pretty quickly, and left my skin feeling extra hydrated.

Sisley-December-2016-0009

Sisley Restorative Facial Cream – .35 oz Value $41.50

Another decadent skincare sample that’s a good size! This one is a little thinner than the last cream, and it’s designed to help with irritated skin (think windburn, sunburn, chafing, etc.). I would have preferred this was unscented, but otherwise, the formula is great.

Sisley Confort Extreme Nutritive Hand Care – 4ml Value $5.70

This hand cream is amazing. It left my skin super smooth and hydrated – but no greasiness at all! And unlike a lot of hand creams, it absorbed almost instantly. Now I just wish I had a bigger sample!

Sisley-December-2016-0011

Sisley Phyto-Teint Eclat #2 – 1.5 ml Value $6

I really didn’t want to fall in love with a $122-an-ounce foundation, but this is the nicest foundation formula I’ve ever tried! It gives full coverage without looking or feeling like you’re wearing makeup – it is magic!

 

Sisley-December-2016-0013

Sisley Soir De Lune Body Cream – .27 oz Value $7

The card describes this body cream as having the scent of a “subtle fruity, floral bouquet with notes of bergamot, jasmine, and honey and a touch of spice.” Unfortunately, it wasn’t very subtle of a scent for me – it’s just a little too overwhelming for me to wear.

 

Verdict: This box has a value of about $103! That’s amazing for a $10 box! I think the skincare products in this box make it perfect for winter (even if they were a little late in mailing it.) And now I am going to wait for a great gift with purchase offer so I can justify buying the full-size version of that foundation.

What do you think of the December Sisley Paris Beauty Subscription Box? Was your box late, too?

  1. After reading the reviews I decided to sign up for this sub. Received first box in April, loved the quality so much and added two more…now I get three boxes each month. I received the boxes in the last week of April and May. Good quality packaging!

    I wish Liz would continue reviewing this sub..

    • I love this sub too. I’m cutting way back and this is one of the few I may keep. I think I’m going to get at least two … Do yours all so separately?

      • Yes I get three separate boxes each month.

  2. I want to sign up for this box, but I’m nervous after reading these reviews. Is everyone still getting their boxes?

    • Melissa, I love this subscription and hate CC. I signed up few months ago and I received every single box so far, but they ship late, and never notify you about shipping. The box just show up in your mailbox. Last month I sent them e-mail asking where the hell my box, and miracle happened, then answered me stating not to worry i will receive my box this month for sure (I contacted them 4/27). Sure enough, my box show up 4/30. Today 5/23 and no box.
      I was contemplating to sign up for second one :). Despite all the stress, their product is amazing.

      • Thank you.. so it seems that people do get their boxes, but they do not provide a shipping email, and they send it on their own timing. I think I’m going to hold off for a bit and hopefully hear from others also about their experiences. Thank you, as you were very helpful!

  3. This subscription is beyond horrible. I signed up for a year on February 2, 2017. There was no e-mail confirmation, nothing. I sent multiple messages and try calling them (their phone always says “unable to answer at this time”). The website says my last box January 2018, which means that my first box must be February 2017, but I got no shipping notification, no subscription confirmation, no box. Despite their premium product then have low end customer service.

    • I have the same experience with them. They even don’t bother to send you shipping notice. The plain little black box just should appear in your mail box. Very frustrating. I had a 3-month subscription and still didn’t get my last box. I’m not sure I can commit for 6-month on this terms.

      • They have the worst customer service ever!
        I complained once about a missing box and they finally mailed it 3 weeks later. No notification of any kind.
        Now I have only received 5 months of a six month sub and they won’t answer emails or return calls.
        I love the products, but the service sucks.

  4. I’ve subbed to this 3 different times so I currently have two 6 months and one year long sub. So, I noticed that when you initially sub you get your box immediately but the longer I’ve had my subs, the later the boxes are coming. I love this sub, obviously since I have 3, but this was not my favorite month. I agree…the body lotion is too fragranced, as are all the body lotions and washes, IMO. The facial creams and hand cream are wonderful though. FYI, I received all 3 of my Jan boxes Jan 20-Jan 30.

    • Thanks for the tip! Your pattern seems to be what a lot of others are experiencing. I’m a brand new subscriber (January was my first box), and I got it almost right away like you said. But, at least now I know what to expect as my 6-month sub progresses.

  5. Just signed up for this! Just wondering–Do they ask for your beauty profile to send you the correct shade of make-up?

    • No, they don’t unfortunately.

  6. Got my Jan box 12/24 and have been waiting (obsessively) for your review since then. the moisturizer lasted over a month (yup cut open tube to get every last bit.) Best sub going.

  7. I subscribed in February for 6 months and received the January items, so I’m assuming they’re just pretty slow to distribute. I’m super happy with everything, I prefer quality over quantity…and yeah, they’re smaller than Birchbox samples, but good lord the formulas are so good.

  8. Finally! A beauty sub whose samples are actually smaller than Birchbox’s. Katia must be a fan.

  9. That foundation is on sale on groupon for $70!

    • Say what?!? BRB buying now:)

  10. I agree with you on this foundation. So great! As you said full coverage without being obvious. I actually wear it today 🙂 my box arrived super late as well. In fact I though it was lost.

    • I was wondering if my box was lost, too! Now I’m wondering where the January box is! Glad to hear you loved the foundation too 🙂

      • That’s weird you haven’t received your January box yet. I subscribed for the first time at the beginning of January (or maybe it was late December), and I received the January box (the 1st one in my 6-month subscription) about 3 weeks ago.
