This is the second part of Sisley Basic skincare review series😊.
Everyone who knows about skincare is aware of the fact that Sisley makes one of the best hydrating masks. I actually wrote a post on rose ingredient based face masks, so if you like to know more about it, you can read from here.
Amongst all the masks in luxury skincare brands, Sisley has been the one that I've been using religiously since 19. As the company's history shows, you can tell that they suggest different targeted treatments in their mask range for specific problems you may have with your skin. This is the main reason why I keep coming back to Sisley masks, and somehow they became one of my bathroom cabinet staple products >_<. By the way, if you are interested in Sisley masks or you love using them, then you should definitely also check out the Chantecaille face mask range too. Their concept is quite similar, so if you love active botanical ingredients, you should have a look for sure :).
I personally find that Sisley masks tend to be more suitable for those with any skin type apart from oily and acne prone problematic skin types. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone, so I've been fine with using Sisley masks. But when I have PMS, I have noticed that their masks don't tend to work as well as when my skin is normal O_O. So I don't use them then, since it feels like a waste of money :3.

I have talked about this mask before in my previous rose face mask post, so you can go there for a more detail look😊. I don't use this face mask during hot/humid seasons, even if I do, I would wash it off with cool water after 15-20 min. The only times that I might leave it on would be in colder seasons, especially when I go to bed or taking a long flight (7+ hours). A tiny bit goes a long way, so it lasts for ages. Normally one tube lasts me for about a year or so.
The Black Rose Cream Mask offers the skin "instant youth". Rich in active anti-aging ingredients (black rose, padina pavonica, and alkekengi calyx extracts), it immediately gets to work on signs of fatigue and leaves the skin looking youthful and energized. It brings together three actions to restore a luminous complexion and redensified skin in just 10 to 15 minutes:
- A smoothing and plumping action
- A revitalizing action
- A softening and hydrating action
Deliciously scented with rose, this soft, creamy mask creates a moment of relaxation and pleasure.
- Black Rose: smoothing, anti-free radicals
- Alkekengi Calyx Extract: stimulates the synthesis of collagen fibers
- Padina Pavonica: promotes the synthesis of glycoaminoglycans
- Vitamin E Acetate: anti-free radicals
- Red Vine: promotes radiance
- Chlorella: revitalizes
- Essential Oil of Geranium: contains stimulating properties
- Great Mullen: protects and soothes
- Shea Butter: nourishes, heals, soothes, softens, and protects
- Provitamin B5: softens and hydrates
- Essential Oils of Rose and Magnolia: soothes

I've also talked about this in detail in my previous rose face mask post. I adore the refreshing light gel texture of this mask😁. It spreads well, so again, one tube lasts me for very long time!
The Express Flower Gel is a very fresh, moisturizing, and toning cream-gel mask specifically designed for dehydrated, sagging, or tired-looking skin. Through its exceptional concentration of moisturizing active ingredients (lily and iris extracts), it regenerates (organic sesame extract), hydrates, tones, removes traces of fatigue and stress, smoothes features, and evens the complexion in just 3 minutes.

- Sesame: hydrates, protects, and regenerates

In a thick gel cream texture, it glides onto the under eye area effortlessly. You only need to use a tiny bit to get the effect. I've been using this for years, but I cannot really tell you much about their claims other than deep hydration. I even use this on my sensitive lips, and it works beautifully. To me, there has been no WOW effect other than simple basic approach. I just pop this onto my under eye areas and onto my lips, then I just lightly tissue off in about 10 min before putting my eye cream on. So I use this more like an eye serum. And I like to keep this in the fridge over summer, and just pop on in the morning to depuff my eyes. I would recommend this product if you are looking for something simple, but clearly I have seen better products on the market.
The Eye Contour Mask is an express smoothing mask used to reduce under-eye puffiness. This mask is specifically formulated for the fragile skin of the eye contour. With its unique combination of plant-based active ingredients (ginkgo biloba, arnica, horse chestnut, linden blossom), vitamins (Provitamin B5 and vitamin E acetate), and oligo-elements (malachite and chlorella), it works within 10 minutes to hydrate and reduce signs of fatigue:
- fine lines around the eye are visibly smoothed
- puffiness and dark circles are visibly reduced
- the eye contour's natural defenses are reinforced
After removal, the original "gel patch" texture of this mask leaves an imperceptible gentle film that continues to work after application. Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested for tolerance.
- Linden blossom: softens, soothes, protects
- Arnica: tones and soothes
- Rose: freshens, softens
- Ginkgo Biloba: tones, protects
- Plant Glycerin: hydrates
- Vitamin E Acetate: anti-oxidant
- Chlorella: revitalizes
- Malachite: reinforces the skin's defenses against free radicals

This was the very first Sisley mask I used, and I've been in love with it ever since! When your skin feels sore or looks stressed/tired, just put this on all over your face including under eye areas and even lips. It instantly comforts and soothes your skin, and the effect still lasts brilliantly even after wash off! I use it all year round, even after sunbathing. Excellent for sensitive/dry skin! I highly recommend😎.
The Facial Mask with Linden Blossom is a cocooning mask that is specifically formulated for sensitive skin. This cream mask utilizes linden blossoms for their softening properties to enliven features and make skin look less tired. Skin is left smooth and radiant with an even complexion.

This is a very gentle yet effective purifying mask. I remember when I first used this when I was a teen, I almost couldn't believe that this mask could work so nicely in spite of its comforting creamy texture. No irritation at all! I am not sure about the pore minimising claim, but it does help my pores not to get enlarged further. I use this mask for preventing future breakouts, rather than treating any spots. I have found that it generally keeps my skin looking healthy.
The Deeply Purifying Mask with Tropical Resins helps to balance the skin as it removes impurities. Its cream-mask texture absorbs excess sebum and mattifies the skin, without drying it out.
The complexion appears clearer and fresher and shiny areas are minimized (Benzoin and Burdock extracts). Pores are visibly tightened, skin texture looks more even and mattified and the complexion appears more radiant (White Clay and Lady's Mantle leaf extract).
The skin is softened and stays comfortable (combination of D-Panthenol and Incense and Myrrh extracts).
Can also be applied as a targeted overnight product to areas of the complexion with imperfections.
- Incense and Myrrh extracts: soothe
- Benzoin extract
- D-Panthenol: moisturizes and soothes
- White Clay
- Burdock extract
- Lady's Mantle leaf extract

I've gone through so many tubes of this mask since I spent a third of my life in Australia. Compared to my friends, it is clear that this mask has done a great job on my skin, even my dermatologist couldn't believe how little sun spots I have ( Yaaaaay!😁). I wouldn't say it's a magic in a tube, but I can say if you use it regularly along with the right targeted skincare regime, then you will be able to even out your complexion and prevent any future discolouration. I even use this mask during my PMS, and it somehow seems to manage my dull looking skin, which is excellent😊. If you want to see the full effect, I recommend you use a spot corrector and/or a brightening serum along with this mask!
Enriched with natural plant extracts and essential oils, Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask thoroughly cleanses the skin while visibly lightening the complexion.

I like to use this mask especially during summer and winter. When your skin needs a gentle treat, this deep cleansing mask is perfect! It doesn't strip oil away like most deep cleansing masks on the market and it doesn't leave your skin feeling very uncomfortable or dry. Thanks to its soothing properties, I have even been using this after intensive treatments at my dermatologist. So if you are looking for a deep cleansing mask that is very gentle, yet calming, try this one!😉
The Radiant Glow Express Mask is a cleansing mask with red clay which immediately leaves the skin with a radiant glow. The absorbing power of the clay, in combination with plant extracts (carrot, red vine, and rosehip) and essential oils (rosemary and chamomile), helps to eliminate impurities that dull the complexion while deeply cleaning the skin. The texture of the Radiant Glow Express Mask is soft, supple, and non-drying and does not create a pulling sensation on the skin. Within 3 to 5 minutes, skin is left clean and radiant.
