Today I’m going to be unboxing my April Play Box from Sephora, but this isn’t a regular Play Box, this is actually the last one. Sephora has decided to end Play and they’re going to be rolling out something different coming soon. The theme for this month is Best-For-Last Beauty, which are some favorites products from the Play team. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through red with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Thank you for PLAY!ing’ with two hearts, written in red. I also received a thank you note for being a long time subscriber and it let me know that there is an extra product in the bag and a set of ten beauty and Play themed stickers.
So the first product we have is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. This is supposed to have a super creamy formula that gives length and buildable volume for up to 24 hours. I’m wearing this mascara today and so far I really like it. The formula is actually really creamy and it went on without any clumping and there’s no transfer. I quite like the brush, it’s nice and big with the plasticy bristles and it has a spikey bit on the end that makes sure you can get all your lashes.
The next product we have is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is a holy grail product for me and my absolute go to for setting sprays. It’s light, dries down quickly and once it has dried then your makeup is locked in. The box says for up to 16 hours and it delivers.
Moving on we have the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is one of my favorite eye creams, I pretty much swear by it. It’s super lightweight and sinks in quickly along with helping with the elasticity of the skin. It has tiger grass which soothes and comfrey leaf which detoxifies. This is a product I always recommend.
Next we have the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a lightweight mushroom infused lotion that is supposed to calm your skin and help to reduce any redness you may have. I don’t really have any redness, but I’m going to give this to someone I know who already uses and loves it.
The second to last regular product we have is the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42. This is a super light sunscreen that can also acts as a primer along with absorbing any oil you may have and giving a matte finish. I don’t always use an SPF under my makeup, I typically do a setting spray that is an SPF as well but that can get a little tacky, so I’m interested to try this out.
And what would be the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask. This is one of my all time favorite hair masks and I’m actually running low on the one I have so this is perfect timing. You put this all the way through your hair, leave for two to five minutes and rinse. It leaves your hair feeling really soft and healthy and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.
The extra product that I received as a thank you is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I’m wearing this today and it’s a really nice medium brown shade. It went on smooth and it’s lasting well through the eating and drinking I’m doing. I have a couple of this is a range of different colors and I think they’re great.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your April Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. I’d also love to know what your favorite product is that you’ve received from Sephora Play in general.
Until next time, enjoy your products and thank you Sephora Play for all the great products :).
