I have been a fan of Sisley face masks and always reach out for them for a quick fix or for my skin’s regular maintenance. A new mask from the brand did excite me so much and after using it for over a month, here I am sharing my thoughts. Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is formulated to give a well-rested, soft, comfortable, and revitalized skin.

Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is a must-have for dry skin, giving the nourishment and moisture to the skin by making up for the lack of water and lipids. The cocktail of powerful key plant-based ingredients nourish skin, restores its suppleness and softness, and long-lasting hydration. The plant-based glycerin and Pro-Vitamin B5 in the formula hydrate the skin. Extract of Saffron flowers is the key ingredients of the range which releases its positive effects throughout the night to bring the skin absolute comfort. The airy, smooth texture of the mask envelops the skin in softness. The notes of honey and orange flowers delicately scent the skin and soothe the senses.

The Velvet Sleeping Mask can be applied twice a week in a thin layer on the face and neck instead of regular skincare, even a perfect product to reach out to when not in the mood for the skincare regime and still want the healthy, nourished, well-slept skin in the morning. The mask absorbs into the skin in a few minutes and stays put without transferring to pillowcase. I have used Velvet nourishing cream during the winters and was a big saviour for the harsh weather, complementing it with this new mask can be the perfect regime for dry skins. The mask can also be applied for 10 minutes in a thick layer as an SOS mask for smooth skin and soothing benefits.

After using the velvet sleeping mask overnight, the skin is relaxed, revitalized, supple, and nourished in the morning. The complexion is velvety soft as the name suggests while the look of the skin is radiant. Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Sisley-Paris.ca

Shiseido has always been a pioneer when it comes to innovation, research, and to understand and maintain the relationship between the brain, body, and skin. Shiseido has introduced ReNeura Technology which is a revolutionary innovation inspired by neuroscience, that means this technology activates the power of touch and awakens unresponsive skin by creating seamless connections between internal messaging systems which in turn makes the skin respond to skincare by fighting against the signs of ageing and generating the luminosity from within.

Shiseido White Lucent range is inspired by Sakura, Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms. The range focusses on visibly creating luminous, even complexion. The newest addition to brand’s cult favourite brightening range contains the Sakura – Bright Complex which is a blend of potent ingredients that address dark spots.

I have been using three products from the range – White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream, White Lucent Overnight Cream and Mask, and White Lucent Brightening Day Emulsion. The three products are all very lightweight, great even for summers, soaks into the skin nicely except the mask which is meant to be washed away. The White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream and Day Emulsion very well when used together or even alone after a Serum. The finish is radiant and dewy without any oiliness. They both work as a nice base for the makeup too. The Emulsion provides extra benefits of suncare without any white cast, one of the lightest sunscreens I have used. The products did not break me out. Now, coming to the White Lucent Overnight Cream and Mask which has kind of same texture, lightweight but a little richer than the gel cream. I apply a thick layer and then before going to bed, I massage the product which has not soaked into the skin. Or otherwise, I wash my face before bed and apply the White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream and my eye cream.

The White Lucent range is fragranced with notes of Sudachi (a Japanese citrus fruit), rose, jasmine, and magnolia. It is also blended with plumeria, that is proven to suppress melanin production. The packaging of the products – subtle pink and white ombre – is reminiscent of the cherry blossom’s unique rosy glow and is influenced by Keshiki, a term unique to Japanese ceramics that expresses how everything from glaze to clay colour plays out on the surface of a piece. The elegantly curved top is designed to mimic the continually swaying surface of the water, while the glass jar containing the gel cream and overnight mask were crafted inspired by Japanese tea bowls used in traditional tea ceremonies.

Shiseido White Lucent Collection is available Sheseido.ca, Hudson’s BayMuraleBeautyboutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.

‘Men’s Collection from Skinstore is the perfect gift for the man, or men, in our lives.’

A USD $250 value, this collection bag retails for USD$69  and per my experience with previously limited edition beauty bags from SkinStore, these sell out fast. The reason is the value and curation of products – both are the best.

I am so glad to see all the products are chosen so carefully, they are one of the bestsellers from their respective brands and categories.

The box is curated by the SkinStore Beauty – skincare experts and the presentation in the black leather bag is perfect to gift it straight to that special person. For me personally, I am going to share the products, that means to have the eye gels and the mask for me, and rest will be his. The boxes are extremely limited in the number, so I would recommend you to check it out on SkinStore here before they run out of stock.
