Sisley Sisleya L’Integral Eye and Lip Contour Cream

August sees the update of Sisley’s Sisleya Global Anti-Age Eye and Lip Contour Cream. The innovation, named Sisleya L’Integral Eye and Lip Contour Cream, is designed in response to genetic, environmental and behavioral factors that contribute to aging. The original formula, which was released in 2000, only addressed the first two factors.

We all know that genes play a major role in our appearance as we get older, but, according to the latest studies, behavioral choices such as our diet, smoking, or sun exposure, may be the real culprits behind lines and wrinkles. With this in mind, Sisley has developed a formula that focuses on the eye area from many different angles. For example, it targets two different kinds of dark circles: those with a blue tint from lack of blood circulation, and those with a brown tint caused by toxins in the system.

Formulated with plant-based active ingredients, the cream contains caffeine that de-puffs the eye area, and Oat Seed extract that provides a lifting effect to the eyelids. Persian Acacia and Lindera extracts, joined with Yeast and Soy Protein Complex, contribute to revitalizing the eye contour and reducing wrinkles and fine lines for a visibly fresher and more youthful look. The cream instantly moisturizes and reduces the look of lines and wrinkles. Day after day, the skin becomes visibly smoother, firmed, puffiness is reduced and dark circles are diminished.

Sisleya L’Integral Eye and Lip Contour Cream comes with a specially designed Ridioki roller, inspired by the tools used in Tsuboki, Japanese face massage. The purpose of this special applicator is to cool down, soothe, and relax the skin as it improves the circulation in the eye area. The tool’s provides a significant boost in micro-circulation, de-puffs the eye area, and amplifies the product’s effects.

Sisley Sisleya L_Integral Eye and Lip Contour Cream How To Use

Directions how to use:

Apply the cream morning and evening along the eye contour area, upper eyelid, avoiding the lashline, and along the contours of the lips.

Prepare the eye & lip area prior to applying the cream, by utilizing the cool-tip massage tool.

1) Smooth the above the eyebrow and over the eyelid and below the eye, always using a motion away from the inner eye. Also, smooth around the mouth area, above the lips, using a motion from the center of the mouth to the outer edges.
2) Use gentle, light pressing motions around the entire eyelid and below the eye area to support microcirculation.
3) Gently move the massage tool in a zigzag pattern between the brows and under the eye area to help de-puff.
4) Use a gentle back-and-forth motion between the eyebrows, along the outer corners of the eye and above the lip to smooth the wrinkles.

The cream provides immediate results (hydration, eyes appear rested and brighter) and long-term results, wrinkles are visibly smoother, skin is firmed, dark circles and puffiness are diminished, and eyes are opened up.





For your lips only: Dior Creme De Rose Smoothing Lip Balm

Dior Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm

It is no secret that I am constantly on the look out for lip products as my lips are the driest one can get in ‘central heating’ ‘freezing’ winter. It doesn’t help that I have a bad habit of biting my lips too. As a result, I have a lip routine going on that consist of exfoliating, regular lip mask and lip products dedicated for both day and night.

A (long) while back, I’ve heard some good reviews of Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm so thought I should give it a go. For years(!) I used Guerlain Baume de La Ferté…. a true holy grail! Sold in a more ‘manly’ tube.  And sometimes La Mer The Lip Balm, like Dior also in a little jar).

Creme De Rose lip balm comes heavily rose scented and it did bother me the first few times using this but after awhile I kinda got used to it, besides the scent only lingered for a short while and it stopped bothering me within few minutes of application.

Texture wise, it is very creamy to apply and feels quite lightweight on my lips despite containing shea butter, rose essential oil, emollients and vitamin A and E to keep lips smooth, soft, hydrated and nourished.

Even though it looks pink in the pot, it applies clear on lips making it perfect for both day and night application. I did find that the closest lip product that this makes my lips feel is the Guerlain Baume de La Ferté (yes!) and La Mer The Lip Balm, except that it is a bit more minty and has more slip on the lips and this is more creamier with a matte finish.

For the package: I love the more ‘manly’ (sorry) and handy tube above the little jar. But after the Guerlain Baume de La Ferté this is definitely now my second preferred ‘day’ lip balm product and due to its soothing base, it makes lipstick application a breeze too. In addition, it is considerably more affordable than La Mer, so win win for me!
