Beauty Review: Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream

Product Tag Line:
To restore a fresh, youthful look to eyes and lips

Product Profile in short:
(as described on Sisley Website)
  • helps counter the formation of visible lines and wrinkles
  • minimizes the appearance of under-eye puffiness, dark circles and signs of fatigue
  • formulated with a particularly high concentration of active ingredients


    After a few weeks' daily use, skin appears more supple, more radiant and better-toned, with an average reduction in wrinkles of approximately 23%.

    What’s Inside:

    Padina Pavonica algae extract
    Natural plant extracts: Matricaria, Licorice, Wheat proteins
    Vitamins (E, B5 and F)

    Close-up: How active are the active ingredients?
    Butyrospermum Park II (Shea Butter) – occlusive
    Glycerin – humectant, attracts moisture to your skin
    Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Extract – is believed to stimulate elimination of old cells and growth of new ones
    Rosa Centifolia (Cabbage Rose) Water - anti-oxidant, toning, revitalizing
    Glyceryl Stearate – emulsifier, solvent, humectant
    Isopropyl Palmitate - thickening agent and emollient
    Sorbitol – humectant, thickener
    Algae Extract-Paraffin - a potent moisturizer
    Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate - Emollient
    Oleyl Alcohol - emollient (skin softener), emulsifier, and thickener
    Cetyl Phosphate - emulsifying agent
    Propylene Glycol - emollient, hydrating agent
    Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract - Anti-inflammatory and a whitening agent
    Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Protein – attracts and retains moisture
    Further: Sesame seed oil, Carrot Root Extract, Matricaroia Extract


    Texture: creamy and thick
    Absorption: due to shea butter it felt very occlusive
    Smell: non-perfumed, extremely subtle and naturally herbal

    I was trying a deluxe sample which lasted for 2 weeks. It’s a nice product: kept the eye area nicely moisturized and allowed smooth makeup application (no clumping of eyeshadows as it at times happens with some eye creams). However, I was expecting much more from this product after experiencing the amazing effects of Sisleya Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate. I would also expect much more impressing effect taking into account quite amazing active ingredients list. It was just ok. I have some slight lines, not yet wrinkles, but I did not see much change in those after the 2-week regular twice a day application. It did have an effect on dark circles, but I cannot comment on puffiness as I don’t usually have this problem.

    Price Time: about 150$
