Long time no post friends. I received my Sephora Play box for the month of January about a week ago and I thought I would share the products that I received and give you a mini review on each product. So the Sephora play box is 10 dollars a month and you get 5 products to test out, you also get the play pass to earn an extra 50 beauty insider points if you buy a full size product that was in your box.
The first product I received was the Tarte Frxxxtion (It is spelled that way) stick which is a black exfoliating cleanser. I absolutely love this. I put this on my skin before I get on the shower when I remember to do so in the problem areas on my face and it really smoothes out my skin and clears up any acne I have had. I really want to purchase the full size of this, but I have used it almost every day and I still have so much left to use. The retail price for the full size is $22. Definitely try this product if you are looking for a great face exfoliator.
The next product is the Clinique almost lipstick in Black Honey. The color of this looks very dark when you take the top off but don’t let that scare you because it is very sheer. I think this is an okay product, but it isn’t something I reach to put on everyday. Maybe if it was a different color I would like it because it feels very moisturizing on the lips, but the color just turns me off to the product. The full size product retails for $17.
Next was the IT cosmetics cc+ color correcting full coverage cream + anti-aging hydrating serum with 50+ spf. I got the shade medium which is a tad bit too dark on my skin. I will say that I absolutely love this product. I have received a sample of this product before and I already knew I loved it. This product is great for days that I don’t want to wear makeup, but want to even out the look of my skin. This also seems to moisturize my skin and give it such a healthy glow. I wouldn’t recommend putting multiple layers to build up the coverage because it will start to look cakey since its supposed to look like your skin only better. I just add one layer and then set it with some powder. Such a great product! The retail price is $38 for the full size.
I also received the Tory Burch Love Relentlessly perfume. The packaging is so cute but my initial thoughts after spraying it is that it is so strong. It does fade away to a pretty scent after, but it is still too strong for my liking. I am starting to have a big collection of sample perfumes that I need to give away to friends or family since I don’t wear any of them. The description says that it is in the Floral fragrance family and has a top note of pink pepper, middle note of orris root, and base note of Patchouli. The 1.7 oz bottle costs $86.
Next, I have a small collection of hair masques that I have been too afraid to try because my roots get oily so easily that I don’t like to add anything to my hair that may make it oily or feel heavy. I received the OUAI hair treatment masque and read some of the reviews on Sephora’s website and decided to give it a try. I am SO SO glad I did. It smells phenomenal and I just put it near the ends of my hair and leave it on for about 5-10 minutes. I then rinse it out and my hair is so soft after it dries. Definitely love this product. I will have to buy the full size when I run out. The full size product which comes in single packets in one box is $32.
The last product I received was the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream. I have heard so many good things about Drunk Elephant skin care. They are pretty pricey, but I don’t think you should skimp on your skincare if you really want to take good care of the skin you have. This cream has been so good for my skin. It has evened out my skin tone, kept it so moisturized, and also feels so luxurious. It doesn’t really have a smell to it which I like because I don’t like skin care products that have a heavy fragrance to them. The full size product will run you about $60 dollars, but this product will go a long way since you don’t have to use a lot to cover your face and neck. I have the sample size and still have so much left even though I use it every single night. Will definitely be purchasing the full size product even though it is a splurge product.
Thank you all for reading and I hope you all enjoyed. If you are interested in makeup and trying out new products, I would definitely sign up for Sephora’s subscription box. There is a long waiting list, but it is worth it. Please subscribe to my emails and also like my Facebook page to get update every time I post. Have a great Wednesday everyone. XOXO
