Yesterday I received my August Play Box from Sephora, and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Your Beauty Sidekicks, meaning these are products that make you feel like you have superpowers. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a really pretty see through green with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white and says ‘Open up for pocket-sized AMAZINGNESS #SephoraPlay’ written in green.
The first product we have is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer. This is an oil free, antioxidant rich moisturizer that’s supposed to help protect your skin but you can also use it as a primer and in that form it’s supposed to lock in your makeup and help it to look smooth. I really like Bobbi Brown as a brand and I’m really interested to see how this works as both a moisturizer and a primer. I’ll let you guys know what I think.
The next product we have is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. This is a vegan collagen night cream that you put on right before you go to bed and it’s supposed to have given you smoother skin when you wake up. I’ve heard good things about this cream, so we’ll have to see how it performs.
Moving on we have the Ren Clean Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. They say to make this cream the last step in your routine and because it’s full of antioxidants it’s supposed to hydrate and soothe your skin all through the day. I’ve used one product from Ren before and I liked it, so I’m interested to try this.
Next up we have the Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum. Like other serums, you put this on before your moisturizer and this is supposed help combat dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. I don’t use products like this often but Sunday Riley makes some amazing skincare and I’ll give it a go and see how my skin likes it. And don’t forget, if you’re going to use a retinol serum make sure to wear sunscreen the next day, protect your face.
The second to last product we have is the Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss in Hot Toddy. I’ve used a few of these in various colors and they all plump your lips nicely, make them feel moisturized, they smell good and you get a nice color payoff. This one in particular is a really pretty warm nude. The only thing that I don’t love about these is I find them to be a little too sticky.
And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter. This is a leave in cream for medium to thick hair and you apply it to your damp hair before styling and it is supposed to smooth and protect. I have a lot of hair and seeing it start to frizz, even a little, after styling it can be annoying. So I’m really interested to try this out.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
