My Play by Sephora Box for July 2016 arrived about two weeks ago but I didn’t get a chance to do an unboxing! Sorry about that. As you may or may not know Sephora Play is Sephora’s new beauty box subscription service. The service is $10 a month and features 5 to 8 samples and deluxe sizes of new and exciting products.
My first box arrived back in May and I expressed some disappointment with the contents. I decided to stick with the service and so far, I’ve been ok with the contents but not terribly excited. I think as a beauty blogger much of the content are items I’ve already tired or purchased for myself. I wish they would include some super new and exciting.
The good news is that Sephora Play July 2016 Box actually did contain a product I wanted to try. It was a full size of the Blotterazzi by Beauty Blender. Sephora sells these in a pack of 2 for $20 and they gift you with a single, full size blotter in this month’s box. To me this covers the cost of the box and anything else inside is basically free.
Here’s a look inside.
Ok, so, don’t kill me as I’m about to be a negative Nancy. I wasn’t excited about this box. It included a few items I’ve already tried and a few I likely won’t use.
- Blotterazzi by Beauty Blender
- Nest Citrine Perfume Sample
- Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer (0.25 oz)
- Ouai Wave Spray (1.7 oz)
- First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay (1.0 oz)
- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (0.08 oz)
This month’s box focuses on oil control and Summer skincare as well as hair care. I personally didn’t like it because I have drier skin and I’m not much of a lover when it comes to bronzer. On that note, I will say it’s filled with items that you might love if you have oily skin or like beach hair (I don’t because I already have beach hair every single day of my life since my hair is crazy long and wavy like a mermaid’s).
I loved the Nest sample and also, I’m quite happy about the Blotterazzi but I’m doubtful I’ll make use of any of the other items. I already own a full size Chocolate Soleil Bronzer so, that’s ticked off my list. The Smashbox Primer and the First Aid Cleanser is meant for oily skin another I can tick off. And as I described above I def don’t need to Wave Spray!
It’s a nice round up of products for $10 bucks that’s for sure but just not products I’ll personally use. And I’ll leave this unboxing with a note that I’ll continue my membership because I’m still waiting on that one box that’s going to knock my socks off and wow me 😀
