Sisley March 2019 “Bright & Eye Opening” Review
Each box comes with a card sharing the theme of the box. This month is “Bright & Eye Opening”.
And detailing the items included with tips on how to use them.
Now, on to the items!
Each month’s products come nestled inside a satin pouch.
Eau Efficace Makeup Remover, 1 fl oz – Estimated Value $12.38 (Buy a full size 10.1 oz for $125.00)
This is a pretty generous sample as far as this sub goes! It is a makeup remover with micellar water, which removes makeup with little to no effort Because it also has that Sisley magical blend of botanicals, you can also use it as a toner or even in a spritzer bottle for an on the go refreshing mist. It smells really lovely, like most of their products, though I personally can’t imagine paying $125 for the full size when I could spend that $$$ on some of their other amazing products.
Sisleya L’Integral Anti-Age Creme Contour, 2 ml – Estimated Value $28.00 (Buy a full size 15 ml for $210.00)
I absolutely adore Siisleys Anti-Age line and this cream is interesting because you can use it on your eyes as well as lip contour area. It was super moisturizing and plumping in both areas for me, and the cream itself was rich and buttery. As far as Sisley products go, this one lacked any sort of amazing botanical scent and though it felt great and did its job, there are other creams from this line I prefer.
Sisley Eye Contour Mask, 3 ml – Estimated Value $14.50 (Buy a full size 30 ml for $145.00)
This is a really rick leave on mask that is cooling, easy to apply, and hydrating for your eye areas. As instructed by the booklet, I applied it all over my eyelid and then, after 10 minutes, gently wiped away the excess. Since you don’t need water to rinse this mask off, I feel like it would be a really awesome formula for applying when you are traveling or on the go, and need a little moisture boost for tired eyes. I also left this on my undereye area overnight as a sleep mask and thought my eyes were really bright and supple looking in the morning.
Phyto-Cernes Eclat, 0.5 ml – Estimated Value $3.57 (Buy a full size 15 ml for $107.00)
This is basically a really high-quality concealer, though the color was way too orange for me to actually use. This is a little concerning since this was listed as #2, meaning the #1 would likely still be too warm or dark for my skin tone. The formula itself was silky and smooth, and I would recommend applying with a concealer brush for the best results.
So Intense Mascara, 1.5 ml – Estimated Value $13.40 (Buy a full size 7.5 ml for $67.00)
This mascara has quite a learning curve. You actually use the flat side to apply color to your lashes from root to tip, then flip the brush around and comb the lashes to distribute the pigment. You can apply in layers until you reach the length and thickness you prefer. I am probably not coordinated enough to really be someone who would buy into this type of application. It took longer and was messier, though my lashes did look great.
Verdict: Sisley this month was less of a wow for me than usual, but I still really enjoyed getting to sample the luxury formulas. My favorite would have to be the eye mask, though I wish I had gotten a larger sample I am glad the makeup remover size was generous though, as it will be going straight into my weekender kit. The concealer was not even remotely close to a shade I could ever wear, so that was a bust, but I liked experimenting with the mascara and the anti-aging cream left my skin feeling really nice. This month had a value of $71.85, which is a great value for a $10 box, I just wasn’t wow-ed this month.
