September Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my September Play Box from Sephora and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Must-See Beauty. Basically products that will grab your attention and that you’ll love. The bag itself is a really pretty light blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. (emoji with heart eyes) 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in blue.

SPSP1

The first product we have is the Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. I’ve used this before, a while ago and I quite liked it. It makes your skin feel really soft and smooth and it’s supposed to retain moisture for up to 26 hours.

SPSP2

The next product we have is the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. This is an oil free primer with a matte finish that is supposed to blur your pores and really lock in your makeup. It also has fig extract which is supposed to have antibacterial properties and be good for the skin. This is good for combination, oily and normal skin and like all First Aid Beauty products it’s safe for sensitive skin. I’m wearing it right now and I didn’t know how much I would like it at first because matte primers aren’t always my favorite but so far I’m really liking it. It did blur my pores and my makeup hasn’t moved. It does have a scent but it’s like a fresh, fruity smell so I don’t mind it.

SPSP3

Moving on we have the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in 4.5, Neutral Deep Brown. I’ve said this before, but when it comes to brows I prefer to use powder, but in the past I’ve used Gimme Brow and it’s honestly so good. Benefit does brows so well that everything in their range is great.

SPSP4

Next we have the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Classic Black. I have heard so many good things about this mascara, so I was excited to have a chance to finally try it out. I’m wearing it today and let me just say, holy lashes Batman. It’s so good. The brush is nice and big, it coats all of my lashes, I’ve not had any flaking and because the formula is so smooth it makes it really buildable without making your lashes stick together or being gloopy. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

SPSP5

SPSP6

The second to last product we have is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This is a conditioning mask that you put on after you shampoo and leave for about 10 minutes and it’s supposed to help prevent any future damage, restore moisture and create vibrancy. It has coconut, avocado, almond and argan oils along with biotin and vitamin B5. This is color safe and safe to use on chemically treated, keratin treated and relaxed hair. And it’s free of artificial dyes, silicones and is cruelty free. As a brand I quite like Briogeo and I love a good hair mask, so I’m excited to try this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

SPSP7

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Viktor&Rolf Magic Sage Spell. This is a very earthy scent. It’s fresh but has a hint of sweetness and a brightness. Not the typical scent that I would go for but it smells really nice. I would say to give it a smell if you haven’t and you get the chance.

SPSP8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your September 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 :).

May Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my May favorites. I think I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a few favorites from my May Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara. This is a mascara that I already had and already used but seeing it in this box has reminded me to wear it more because I genuinely love it. It doesn’t clump or feel heavy on the lashes and it gives me a ton of volume and length. It’s a fantastic mascara.

MYSP7

My next favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deepp Dive Cleansing Gel. If you guys have read any of my skincare routine posts, with the exception of the last one, then you’ll know this is a product I’ve been using for a while. And I put it in here because it’s so good. It has marine plant extracts along with vitamin C and it leaves your skin feeling really hydrated and super soft. And the fact that it removes whatever long lasting/waterproof makeup I’m wearing and doesn’t leave anything behind is a major plus.

MYSP3

My second to last beauty favorite and last Play favorite is the Viktor&Rolf Magic Salty Flower perfume. This is a scent that I would say is perfect for spring and summer but you could definitely wear it in the fall if you do perfumes for certain seasons. It’s really fresh and has floral hints but it’s also spicy and warm. It’s very well balanced and I really like the way it wears. It’s a great perfume.

MYSP8

And my last beauty favorite is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I’m usually using one or two different concealers at a time and I was in the market for a new drugstore concealer. I liked the one I had been using previously but I wanted to try something different so I went and looked and decided on this one. I have this in two shades, 5, Ivory and 10, Fair. I’ve been using 5 for brightening under my eyes and 10 for everywhere else and I’m really liking it. I like the formulation, it wears well throughout the day and it blends so nicely. If you’re looking for a new concealer I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.

CON1

Moving on, I have a random favorite and it’s Icy Hot. I’m currently dealing with some shoulder pain and have been trying to use ice but during the day when I’m working and doing stuff it’s just not convenient to have to use an ice pack so my doctor told me to use Icy Hot, which I’ve used for various things in the past, if there’s a time when it really hurts. So I’ve been doing that off and on and for the most part it does help and I think it smells good so that’s a win.

My second to last favorite is the Indy 500 aka The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. This year was the 103rd running of the Indy 500 and it did not disappoint. I’ve been watching the race every year since I can remember and it’s an absolute favorite of mine. The flyover for this year was a heritage flight featuring the A-10, the F-16, the P-51 and the P-40 and it was so well done. And the race was incredibly exciting. Simon Pagenaud led most of the race after qualifying on the pole, then had an incredible battle with Alexander Rossi during the last ten laps before pulling out the win. It was amazing to watch and I was on the edge of my seat. So huge congrats to Simon Pagenaud and his entire team.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, it’s Live From Daryl’s House. Basically Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates has various musicians come over to his house and they hang out and play music. I think this was actually on TV but I’ve been watching it on YouTube at the recommendation of my dad who is a Hall and Oates fan. It’s really fun, there’s great music and if you haven’t checked it out I would recommend it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great May :).

May Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my May Play Box from Sephora, so I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Beauty Bffs, products that you’ll want to tell everyone about. The bag this month is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is see through red with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘What are you waiting for? Open me! #SephoraPlay’ written in red with an arrow pointing at the opening of the bag.

MYSP1

So the first product we have is the dpHue Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. This has apple cider vinegar, aloe vera and argan oil and you’re basically supposed to use it in place of your shampoo and conditioner. It’s supposed to refresh your scalp, protect your color and add softness. I’ve never used anything like this before and I’m intrigued by it. I’ll let you guys know what I think.

MYSP2

The second product we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. This is a product I have in my skincare cabinet, I’ve been using it for a while and I love it. You put a little in your hands, rub them together until it foams up and put it on your face. It removes everything and leaves your skin feeling really soft and hydrated. It has vitamin C and marine plant extracts and it’s something I will always recommend.

MYSP3

Next up we have the KORA Organics Noni Glow Face Oil. This is made from Noni extract which comes from the Noni fruit and it has a ton of antioxidants, and includes vitamins A and C. This is supposed to moisturize your skin, smooth and brighten. I’m excited to try this out and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

MYSP4

Moving on we have the Lancôme CILS Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. This is a lash primer that has vitamin E and is supposed to strengthen and lengthen your lashes. You can also wear this at night as a lash mask. I don’t always use lash primers, but I’ll give this one a go.

MYSP5

MYSP6

The second to last product we have is the Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara. This is a mascara that I use, I’m wearing it today, and I absolutely love it. It gives me a ton of volume and length and it doesn’t clump. This mascara 100% lives up to the hype and if you’re looking for a new mascara I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

MYSP7

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is Viktor&Rolf Magic Salty Flower. This smells really nice. It’s warm and spicy but also a little floral and fresh. It’s really nicely balanced and a great summer scent. I’m for sure going to order a bottle of this. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance I definitely would.

MYSP8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your May Play Boxes 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 :).
