May 2019 Sisley Paris "Roses & Radiance" Box Review

 

Each box comes with a card indicating the theme of the box. This month is "Roses & Radiance." I LOVE rose products!

Now, let's check out the items!

Sisley June 2019 Review pouch

Every month, the products come nestled inside a satin pouch.

 

Phyto-Blanc Buff & Wash Facial Gel, 10 ml - Estimated Value $13.00 (Buy a full-size 100 ml version for $130.00)

This scrubby cleanser has that amazing Sisley scent that I can't get enough of. The scrubbing action is from bamboo particles, which did feel efficient, although a little rough on my skin. After washing it off, my skin felt very smooth, though I did reach for my serum and moisturizer right away, as I felt pretty dry and a little scratched.

 

Black Rose Precious Face Oil, 0.10 fl oz - Estimated Value $27.98 (Buy a full-size 0.84 oz version for $235.00)

The face oils from this brand always feel like total luxury, and this rose formula is specifically meant for dry and mature skin. I am definitely dry and well on my way to "mature" so I was very excited. This stuff feels incredible and for being how heavy it is, it absorbs almost instantly. My face felt like straight up velvet after sleeping with it on. The smell is also a very heady combination of roses and botanicals, which suits me just fine!

 

Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream, 4 ml - Estimated Value $15.60 (Buy a full-size 50 ml version for $195.00)

This cream was the perfect compliment to the rose serum above, as I am sure they were designed to be! A less floral scent (more of a nutty, creaminess?) it went on thick, but like the serum, it absorbed easily. I slept in the serum and cream together for a night and wow did my skin look amazing in the morning. Amazing enough for the combined $425.00 price tag? Maybe in another lifetime.

 

Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist in #15 Nut, 1 oz -Estimated Value $20.00 (Buy a full size 2.5 oz for $50.00)

I received this back in December, and I still love it very much. I seriously considered buying it and got mostly through the checkout before I came to my senses. $50 for a lip crayon is intense, especially for someone like me. The formula is absolutely fantastic and this shade is perfect for a natural lip with effortless application and long-lasting wear. Since I did eventually balk at that $50 price tag, I am really happy to see a generous sample in the same color making another appearance.

Just the perfect amount of pigment and gloss!

 

Izia Perfumed Bath and Shower Gel, 8 ml - Estimated Value $2.88 (Buy a full-size 250 ml for $90.00)

Finally, another favorite scent makes an appearance! I absolutely love the Izia scent and I have gotten it before as a perfumed lotion. This is the shower gel version and it maintains much of this scent's charm. The main note here is rose but in the freshest way imaginable. This is not an old lady rose scent! The floral tones are complimented with pink pepper, citrus, and angelica. It is absolutely grown up due to the complexities of this sweet blend, but not overly mature. The wash itself has a texture befitting a $90 bottle of body wash, namely a super smooth and heavy gel that washes away leaving behind moisture and a cloud of scent.

Verdict: Sisley was fantastic this month. I was so happy to see a favorite lip pencil included as well as two items from the Black Rose collection, another one of my faves! I also was really happy with the included Izza shower gel, since I am a perfume nut and I love this particular scent. The face cleanser is also lovely, but likely not for me as exfoliants make my face angry. Overall, I am estimating a value of around $79.46 for this box. (Keep in mind I come to this estimation based on the full-size values!) While two of the samples were foils this month, I do find they last more than a few uses if I am mindful of how much I apply.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

I was so happy to see they included a bottle of the rose oil rather than another blister sample. Now I have something to decant all of the blister samples I’ve accumulated into!

Luna, I’m half tempted to mix a little of mine with another favorite oil serum to extend its life. How nuts do you think this idea is??

I’m not Luna, but was glancing over the Sisley reviews to locate the satin pouch with the bottle of Huile Precieuse a la Rose Noire, and saw your question about mixing the oil with another.

JMO, of course, but I would NOT dilute the oil in any way. Sisley products are so great on their own, that mixing them would dilute not only the rose scent but the effects of their product(s). I use this oil and the Baume- en Eau- la- Rose Noire ( the black rose cream) every night, and my skin is soft as butter. I also use these products after facial peels, as they are so gentle and mild.

However, I don’t think products with rose scent smell like ” old lady”, though I AM a ” mature aged lady”. 🙂 Lavender, absolutely does smell musty and like stored clothing, but not rose scents. It’s likely generational, as Evelyn and Crabtree lavender drawer sachets and closet scent hangers and other lavender-scented products were VERY popular with mature ladies when I was in my 20’s.. and I associate that scent with age. ( I’m also allergic to it).

If you’re all about the herbal more masculine scents, as your reviews suggest, then maybe swap this if Sisley is on the swap site.
I know if I was on the swap site, I’d swap something primo to get another sample sized bottle of the oil. Likely, others will as well.

Those blister samples are perfect for a weekend away, though.

I can definitely see that 🙂 For me, since I wouldn’t travel with them, and I’m not sure if one of them would be too much for one use for me, I like the idea of being able to decant them all into one little dropper so I can control how much I’m using at a time. 🙂 But I’m always happy to get those blister packs too!

I’ve wanted to subscribe to this for so long. Do they ever have discounts?

I’ve never seen a discount on their box. 🙁 I guess the only embedded discount could be if you purchased an annual subscription, bring the price of the box down to $8.33/box.

I sprang for the annual a few months ago, and it’s now one of my favorite subs. I will probably never buy a full size product, but it’s so worth the $100/year to get such nice quality products (small tho they may be) wrapped up in a lovely satin pouch. And the makeup items like this lip pencil or a tiny mascara are always a plus; hoping for an eye pencil soon.

I ended up doing that Luna, it was the easiest way for me to justify adding one more box :S May was my first box, and I was thrilled! The lip crayon is a perfect day lip for me, and I don’t normally wear pale colors as I get washed out, but this one didn’t wash me out at all.

Everything smelled so good and left my skin amazingly soft. I am glad I finally caved and went for a full year, my BF on the other hand… 😉 LOL

They never give discount. However, it is $100 for 12 boxes if you do annual subscription.
I want to subscribe but I want this month.
