April 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

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 :).

October Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my October Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Your Beauty Recipe, products that you can mix into your routine to help you look fresh and I think that’s a great theme. The bag is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through dark blue with various beauty and lifestyle objects and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Miniature beauty, major satisfaction #SephoraPlay’ written in dark blue.

OCTSP1

The first product we have is the Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser. This has kale, green tea, spinach and vitamins, essentially it’s a green juice for your skin. It’s free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes and more. Good for dry, combination, normal and oily skin. I like gel cleansers and this one is really intriguing to me, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

OCTSP2

The next product we have is the Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a mushroom infused soothing lotion that is supposed to reduce redness and help to prepare your skin for serums/moisturizers. Redness isn’t something I have a problem with but I know someone who will probably love this.

OCTSP3

Moving on we have the Shiseido WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer. This is a moisturizer that uses whole carrot cells for hydration and peony root extract to prevent the look of any skin imperfections and is supposed to hydrate the skin for up to 24 hours. I was excited to try this because Shiseido is such a great brand, so I used it the night I got it. I like that it’s a clear gel, it’s light and I felt like it was quick to sink in to my skin. However, this broke me out so bad. I really don’t have sensitive skin but there was something in there that my skin just did not like.

OCTSP4

Next up we have the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve talked about this a number of times, I really like it. It has marine plant extracts, gives you a great base to work with and helps to lock in your makeup.

OCTSP5

The second to last product we have is the ultimate, holy grail setting spray, Urban Decay All Nighter. This helps to cool and lower the temperature of your makeup so there’s no melting and it really locks it in. It says up to 16 hours on the bottle and in my experience that’s true. I will forever recommend this.

OCTSP6

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Masque. This has macadamia oil to add moisture and shine and sunflower seed extract to protect your color. Basically it’s super nurturing. You put this in clean, damp hair from about the middle of your hair to the ends and let it sit for between 5 and 20 minutes before you rinse it out. I’ve been super careful with my hair since getting it done, but I am interested to try this out.

OCTSP7

That about wraps it up for this, if you guys got any of the same products in your October Play Boxes let me know which, 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 :).
