I always stress the most on the cleansing when it comes to skincare. You can use even the best of the serums, creams or face oils but if your skin is not clean and ready for the products to be applied and absorbed, they will not be beneficial. The first step in a skincare routine, whether you are very much into skincare or not, is cleansing. By clean skin, I mean the dirt, makeup, extra sebum produced by the skin is removed so that the skin is ready to take benefit from the serum or moisturizer or any product you are going to apply next. Whether I use makeup or not, I always double cleanse in the evening. The reason for double cleansing even when I have not applied makeup during the day is that I apply sunscreen every single day and I treat it in the category which needs double cleansing – moreover, it gives me satisfaction that my skin is clean and also I notice negligible breakouts. For mornings, I only do single cleanse. Sisley Paris has launched 2 new cleansing products Sisley Paris Triple-Oil Balm Makeup Remover & Cleanser and Sisley Paris Eye and Lip Gel Makeup Remover. Both the new launches work very well with Sisley Paris Radiance Foaming Cream Cleanser which I have been loving since it launched last year.
I noticed that I did not share about Sisley Paris Radiance Foaming Cream Cleanser on the blog yet but I did many times on my Instagram, I know many of you love it already. Sisley Paris Radiance Foaming Cream Cleanser is a very gentle, non-drying smooth foam cleanser which transforms into cream when massaged into the skin. It dissolves the impurities, dirt, makeup, and sebum to cleanse the skin while keeping the skin comfortable and balanced. There is no feeling of tightness or dryness but the skin feels clean, smooth, soft, and radiant. I have used it for a few months now and love it so much.
Sisley Paris Triple-Oil Balm Makeup Remover & Cleanser is a solid yet melting butter-like balm that becomes silky, lightweight oil texture upon application. I have been really impressed with how smooth it is and how it instantly melts into the skin while dissolving all the makeup without irritating the skin. Despite the balm-like texture, it does not feels heavy on the skin and nor does it breaks me out, even in the summer. I apply a small amount on my dry face and then massage gently on full face and neck, including eye area. The formula transforms into a silky oil when massaged. It transforms into a soft milky emulsion when a little water is applied and massaged, then it removes quickly when rinsed without feeling greasy. I do prefer using my washcloth to remove it once I am done massaging it. I feel it more relaxing overall. I did not feel any drying effect or any congestion or irritation since I started using it.
For your reference, I have combination skin prone to congestion. The packaging as you see is very beautiful, co-ordinates with the rest of the cleansers in this collection. There is a complimentary spatula included with the product for ease of use and application without dipping a finger inside the tub every time. Overall, a lovely experience for the first cleanse to remove makeup, sunscreen, excess sebum, build-up, pollution, and what not from the day.
Sisley Paris Eye and Lip Gel Makeup Remover is an eye and lip makeup remover in a very soothing gel formula that also refreshes and nourishes the area. The formula is cooling and gel-like while being lightweight, gentle, and non-greasy at the same time. I apply this gel formula on my eyelids including lashes and lips with my fingers, massage gently in circular motions, and then wipe it off gently with the cotton pad. Or I apply it straight to the cotton pad and then gently wipe over the eye, from top to bottom, and the lips.
Once removed, the eyes contour feels refreshed, soothed, and comfortable, moisturized, and toned. I have used it to remove even my waterproof mascara and it works, I make sure to apply directly on my eyelids and lashes and massage a little extra than normal before wiping it off with the cotton pad. Even the eyelashes feel shinier and soft after using this Eye and Lip Gel makeup remover. I am really liking it, very unique formula and experience.
I am really enjoying these three cleansing products in my skincare routine and would highly recommend you to check them out. Sisley Paris products are available at luxury retailers including Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom. It is also available at Sisley- Paris.ca.*Press samples
