I've been receiving the Play! by Sephora box for several months now and I absolutely love it. In the past, I filmed myself unboxing Play! but I've decided to move it to my blog.
Each month Sephora will send you 5 deluxe samples and 1 perfume sample for $10. So far I've been so happy with each month and find that there are usually several samples that are useful to me. This month's box is great!
Ouai Treatment Masque
Ouai is a fairly popular hair care brand and I've received products from this brand a few times through this subscription box. I've really liked everything I've tried but haven't gotten a chance to use this hair mask yet. Just know that I look forward to trying it out.
Tarte FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser
This skincare product from Tarte is certainly interesting. It was neat to receive a sample size of one of the newer products at Sephora. They are usually really good about sticking a couple of new releases in the subscription boxes. I know I had my eyes on this product and was curious to try it. Thankfully I was able to try this sample first. I've got to say, I'm impressed. Before I used it, I made sure to remove my makeup and cleanse my face with some gentle soap. For some reason, applying this stick directly to an unclean face gives me the heebie-jeebies. Maybe because stick products are usually a breeding ground for bacteria. However, I applied the stick on my face just like I would with a foundation stick, except I targeted it on areas I needed extra exfoliating. So, my forehead, chin and nose. I rubbed the exfoliator into my face using circle motions and rinsed with warm water. Afterwards, my face felt SO smooth. I was very happy with the results and I plan on using this sample up to it's last drop. If I end up purchasing the full size, I'll be sure to include it in a post on my blog or my YouTube channel.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
This moisturizer is super thick and one of those products that you know does a good job. I used it one night and couldn't stop feeling my face. It almost felt as though I used a silicone primer but in a moisturizing formula, if that makes any sense. I think it did a nice job moisturizing, but I don't know if I would try it under makeup. It's slick, silicone feel leads me to believe my makeup would slip and slide on top of this. I think I'll use this sample up, but I don't see myself purchasing the full size, especially not with that $60 price tag.
It Cosmetics CC Cream in Medium
I love that they included this as a sample! It's the perfect size for traveling or something tiny to keep in your purse. This product is one of my favorite foundations of all time and a sample size of it is so handy. Luckily, medium is a good shade for me, however I can't see it working for every single person on the Play! by Sephora mailing list. I always wonder how these subscription boxes accommodate for that, if they do.
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
This perfect raspberry tint has been in my purse ever since I received this box. I absolutely adore shades like these. This lip product is hydrating and gives a beautiful raspberry tint to your lips. I can't vouch for the longevity of this product, because its one of those things that you apply and then forget about. It's just an easy lipstick and I love products like that.
