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!
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.
