Unboxing: April & May Sephora Play Boxes!!!!

I love this box!  Sephora came out with their own subscription box a few months back and it is a sample box that let's you try things you always wanted, without paying full price, so you can see if it would be worth it.  There is one downside, you have to sign up on their waiting list and they will send you an email when you can start your subscription.  My wait lasted about 2 months.

So these unboxings are going to be a bit different.  I will be posting a pic of all the products in the box and then I will list the items in the box and how much the full size will be.  And the box is so cute that it comes in!

It is a $10 a month box and here is the link to get you started:  Sephora Play

Oh and just another small bonus:  Every month, in your little brochure that comes with your box, there will be a PLAY card on it.  That gives you 50 extra bonus points and a free consultation every month!  How awesome is that???

April 2016:  The It Crowd

Inside the box:

Milk Makeup:  Sunshine Oil
Full Size:  $38
Where to buy on Sephora:  Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil

You can use this on your nails, elbows, hair and face!  It is a fantastic oil that smells delicious and is so hydrating.  I had seen the Milk line before and avoided it, it seemed like a gimmick, but this product I LOVE!  I will be purchasing it in the future!

Sunday Riley:  Good Genes Treatment  
Full Size:  $105
Where to buy on Sephora:  Good Genes Treatment

It claims to be a all in one Lactic Acid treatment.  To be honest, I haven't touched this one yet, but I am looking forward to it.  For those of you who suffer from hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) this might be something you will want to give a try!

Clinique:  Pep-Start Eye Cream
Full Size:  $26.50
Where to buy at Sephora:  Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream

I am usually not a huge fan of Clinique, but this eye cream wasn't terrible.  In fact it works pretty well at getting the puffiness and tired look out.  I recommend it, especially for travel!

NARS:  Satin Lip Pencil
Full Size:  $26
Where to buy on Sephora:  NARS Satin Lip Pencil

I love the Satin Lip pencils in the NARS collection.  The formula is creamy and soft and goes on without a lot of hassle.  I also like that they don't seem to bleed too much and they are precise in the application!

Sephora Collection:  Colorful Cheek Ink Gel
Full Size:  $14
Where to buy at Sephora:  Colorful Cheek Ink Gel

I loved this.  I am actually not big on liquid blushes, but this was so beautiful.  It came in the color Peony and it went on light and blended beautifully.  There is something to be said about that Sephora brand!!

Bonus:  Every month they give you a sample of a perfume as well

Derek Lam 10 Crosby:  2AM Kiss
Full Size:  $175
Where to buy on Sephora:  2AM Kiss

I am always a bit nervous about fragrances being sent, but this one is lovely.  

May 2016:  The Forces of Nature

This month came in a cute little bag inside the box!!!!

Inside the Box

BITE Beauty:  Amuse Bouche in Kimchi
Full Size:  $26
Where to buy on Sephora:  BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks

I love BITE Beauty!  It is one of the best lip product companies I have ever come across.  I have a few of their Amuse Bouche lipsticks and I love them.  Organic and creamy and really well pigmented.  Kimchi is a bit bright, but I LOVE that for summer!

Tarte:  Tarteist Lip Crayon in Latergram
Full Size:  $18
Where to buy on Sephora:  Tarteist Lip Crayon

Tarte won my heart a long time ago, there is nothing about this company I don't love, including this lip crayon.  Latergram is a perfect color to line for most warm neutral colors.  The crayon itself is very precise and I love that it glides on.

Origins:  Maskimizer & Drink Up & Clear Improvement Masks
Full Size Maskimizer:  $22
Full Size Drink Up Overnight Mask:  $26
Full Size Clear Improvement Mask:  $26
Where to buy on Sephora:  Primer Maskimizer , Overnight Mask Drink Up ,  Charcoal Mask Clear Improvement

I love that Origins went with the primer and both masks.  This gives you a feel of how a full mask system would work for your skin and how to use it.  It seems complicated at first, but it is actually quite simple.  Can't wait to try this out!

Korres:  Wild Rose Sleeping Facial
Full Size:  $48
Where to buy on Sephora:  Wild Rose Sleeping Facial

This I am totally stoked to try!  It is a Vitamin C treatment that you sleep in!  I love these treatments because they are so easy to use and I love that I just slap it on and go to bed.  Easy peasy!

Briogeo:  Don't Despair, Repair!  Deep Conditioning Mask
Full Size:  $9
Where to buy at Sephora:  Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask

OMG!  I thought this would be just another hair product, but I love this!  I suffer from the not straight but not wavy but super frizzy and poofy hair syndrome and this worked beautifully!!!!  And it is so reasonably priced for the full size!!!


Atelier Cologne:  Orange Sanguine
Full Size:  $120
Where to buy on Sephora:  Orange Sanguine

I loved this fragrance even more than last month's.  It is light and beautiful and citrus smelling, which is always perfect for summer!!!

Now you have seen both boxes and have an idea what they offer!  Go sign up and get yours today!!!



  1. Thanks for the review. Can't wait to get my inviting to sign up

    1. I love this box so much because it is such a cheap and easy way to try product before wasting money. We have all been there, where we drop $100 on something only to find out we hate it.

      I can't wait to see what you think!

  2. Thank you, I didn't realise Sephora did this sort of subscription boxes. There are lots of products I'd like to try like SKN Complex so I hope they end up in there at some stage.

    1. I think it is a great way to try those expensive products without breaking your bank, so I am happy I could bring this to light for you! Just be sure to go sign up and wait to be invited, it shouldn't be very long! Thank you for stopping by!
