Review – Can Sisley Eye Contour Mask Refresh My Tired-Looking Eyes?

 

 

Due to aging, I have noticed there are more fine lines around my eye areas. And also crow’s feet begins to appear and dark eye circles seem to get even darker. 

Therefore, I’ve been consistently and painstakingly finding ways to eliminate or reverse the signs of eye aging as much as possible. 

Treatment for eye contour is in fact one of the most difficult area to remedy. It is mainly due to the epidermis on the eye contour is fine, fragile and thinner than on the rest of the face. And also subject to constant movements, making it particularly delicate and sensitive. 

Generally, it is not easy to find a good eye mask in the market. Before I bought Sisley Contour Mask, I will normally apply the face hydrating mask onto my face and also on the eye area (although most of the face masks may not be suitable to apply around the eyes).

In fact, Sisley is one brand I used to trust very much, so whenever there is a new product launch, I will usually rush down and grab it. And Sisley Contour Mask is one of them.

Product profile

Within 10 minutes it helps re-hydrate the skin and reduce all signs of fatigue, thanks to active ingredients that:

  • locally improve microcirculation
  • help reinforce skin’s natural defenses
  • smoothe and optimize radiance on this very fine and fragile area

Ingredients

Sisley Contour Mask contains numerous antioxidant ingredients which help to revitalize the skin.

  • Ginkgo biloba is a potent antioxidant that helps improve blood flow.
  • Vitamin E acetate, malachite extract and linden extract are considered as potent antioxidants that can protect against free radicals.

As usual, Sisley has tried very hard to over-inflate some of the ingredient claims and below are some examples :

  • Sisley has claimed that arnica extract helps boost surface micro-circulation but sad to say there’s no scientific benefit to the skin and worst it is a skin irritant.
  • Horse chestnut extract is said to have a decongesting and softening action but it only have anti-inflammatory properties for skin. 
  • Chorella Extract, also known as algae, is claimed to have effects on wrinkling and revitalizes the skin but the claims are unsubstantiated.

For hydrating benefits, Sisley Contour Mask contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and glycerin that help maintain hydration and skin smoothness.

How to use

Use morning or night before applying a cream. Apply a thick layer of product over the eyelids and the eye contour and leave on for 10 minutes. Remove the excess without rinsing off.

Review

Whenever I have tired-looking eyes, Sisley Contour Mask will come as a ‘occasional’ temporary rescue. This transparent gel mask faintly helps refresh, hydrate and rejuvenate the eye contour. Why I emphasis the word ‘occasional’ because sometimes I do see some improvements but sometimes I don’t, hence the results are no consistent.

If there is a result, Sisley Contour Mask is able to re-hydrate skin or smooth away visible signs of fatigue. The appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles are less visible. But all these results are only TEMPORARY and as for crow’s feet no result though!

Will I buy it again? I doubt so!

    Hi Azysmoozy,

    I can’t remember how much I have bought it. Quite ex though. There is no eye product that I know of that can treat puffiness and eye bags. For eye bags, you need to remove them surgically. And for puffiness, you can do drainage massage on eye areas to drain out the wastage.

Got something to say? Go for it!
