I have been a Sephora lover for a while now and it’s probably my favorite place to shop for makeup. So, when I heard that they were coming out with their own monthly beauty subscription box I was super excited and immediately signed up on the wait list. I finally got off the wait list and was able to sign up for the Play! box. I’m excited to share with ya’ll what was in this month’s box and my first Play! By Sephora box. The theme of the box this month is “The Forces of Nature”. Meaning that all the products in the May box are “natural and good for you” products.
1.) The first thing that came in the bag was a Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. This is an overnight facial treatment that’s supposed to brighten and moisturize. I’ve never used a Korres product before, but I’ve heard some great things about the brand, so I was excited that this was in this month’s box. I really enjoy overnight skincare items like this; you can just put them on before bed and when you wake up you see the benefits. Also, this product is made with wild rose oil which helps to even skin tone and improve fine lines, and it gives the product a nice, fresh rose scent that I absolutely love.
2.) The second item in the bag was the Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair deep conditioning mask. I also appreciate a nice hair mask, and just taking that time to add one more step into your hair care routine can make all the difference. I have tried this product out, and I’ve been really enjoying it. It’s supposed to soften and reduce fizz and also give your hair a beautiful shine.
3.) The next product in the bag was a Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in the shade Kimchi, which is a bright pink. I am familiar with Bite Beauty and already love their lip products, so I was really excited to receive this cute little lipstick from Bite Beauty. This product is made with 12 edible oils that provide intense hydration. This shade has great pigmentation and glides on beautifully.
4.) There was also the Origins Maskimizer and two sample masks. The sample bottle of the maskimizer is very small, but I feel like it made up for it considering that they also combined samples of their drink up and clear improvements masks, which I already own and love. When I opened this product the idea of the maskimizer really intrigued me. I’ve never seen a product like this before. It’s a mist that primes the skin for optimal mask use. Although it does seem like an unnecessary step, I feel like it’s something that would make the mask process that bit more luxurious. I’m excited to try this out and see if it does anything beneficial.
5.) The next product that I found in the bag is the Tarte lip crayon in the shade Latergram. I am very familiar with the Tarte Cosmetics brand and am already a fan of them, so I was excited to see a lip crayon from them that I haven’t tried yet. The shade of this lip crayon is a beautiful nude and I can’t wait to try it out.
6.) The last product in the bag was a perfume sample. Every month they choose a perfume sample for the Play! box, and this month it was the Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine. I don’t normally go for scents like this one, but I actually really like it, it would be the perfect scent for summer. It has a “blend of sweet blood orange and bitter orange peel paired with notes of geranium.”
So that’s all of the products that came in the May Play! By Sephora Box. I was pretty happy with the products that I got. I’m not sure of my overall opinion of this subscription service yet, as it was only my first box, but I’m definitely excited to see how next month’s compares. I hope you enjoyed my post and as always feel free to comment!
