Our Review of the December 2018 Sisley Box
Each box comes with a card sharing the theme of the box:
And detailing the items included with tips on how to use them:
Now, on to the items!
This heavy hair mask doesn’t smell as great as the skincare below, but it is a scent I still like. This is a good thing since after leaving it on for 10 minutes it really stays in your hair! After washing it out my hair felt like it has just had some sort of crazy keratin treatment. It was so silky and smooth!
When it comes to perfumes, I lean much more towards unisex/masculine. Think campfires, old books, and some floral. This scent is absolutely nothing I thought I would like but it is just odd/unique enough for me to be really into it. Much brighter and sharper than my usual fares, it has a bold floral aroma with something else that is just a little weird and fascinating. If I had to guess what it was I found so delicious about this scent it would be the pink peppercorn mid-note, an element I always adore in any fragrance profile. This perfume also smells wildly expensive. This lotion delivered much more scent than moisture, but I am really impressed at any lotion that delivers as much fragrance as an actual perfume, which this on almost does.
This serum has that amazing Sisley herbal smell! I can’t get enough of it. This serum was super cooling and left my skin just a wee bit tingly. I used it after toner and before my night cream. My skin felt very fresh and bright in the morning.
I don’t think I have ever put a serum this expensive on my face. How I wish it didn’t smell so fresh and herbal and feel like magical potion on my skin! The folks at Sisley recommend 2 months of use to really see results, but my tiny tube surely won’t last that long. I will cherish this little tube while I can! I am actually using it around my eyes only to extend our time together. My delicate facial skin seems extra smooth, perky, and firm with this cream, but for the price, it is absolutely something I will have to learn to live without.
Sisley Velvet Nourishing Cream with Saffron Flowers, 4 ml – Estimated Value $17.88 (Buy a full size 50 ml here for $220.00)
This heavy cream was like velvet on my skin, so it is aptly named. It left my face feeling hydrated and very luxurious. It immediately reduced my redness which I always appreciate, though it might be too heavy for day wear if you tend to wear much foundation. I used it under powder and it was good for me during the day, but I am comfortable with minimal coverage. I feel like my normal foundation would have sat weird on this formula though, so I will likely reserve this precious tube for evenings.
Oh my. It isn’t fair that I am now obsessed with a $50 lip crayon. The color is absolutely gorgeous. It is one of those shades that you can’t really apply too much of, so you don’t need a mirror. It also has a ridiculous amount of staying power. The color is called Nut, but it is a peachy rose and is a perfect punchy accent to my natural lip color. I guess you could say, I’m nuts for it. It is my ideal shade for everyday wear. The formula also leaves your lips feeling amazing. Don’t even try this unless you want to love it and spend the rest of your afternoon justifying a $50 lip product. *adds to cart* Merry Christmas to me.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $93.37, which is close to absurd for a $10 box. It was a great introduction to some of Sisleys most amazing products and I will cherish these tiny little foils and tubes for as long as I can. The lip pencil was such an incredibly generous sample for such a low-cost box and maybe someday I can add that incredible serum to my routine. I am still really torn on the perfumed lotion scent, but I bet I will cave and MAYBE splurge on that scent someday. Sisley is so luxe and I am pretty much obsessed with their formulas now.
