Hello lovelies! For the past year or so, I had been patiently waiting for Sephora to release their Play? subscription box to the rest of the country. When I received the e-mail to join the subscription, I was definitely super excited. At the time to sign-up for the box, it is by invite only. I’m not sure if it is open to everyone yet, but I’ll keep an eye out and find out for you. For $10/month plus tax, which for me was less than a dollar, you get a box of 5-6 deluxe sample sizes of different products. You must subscribe for the monthly box, and it is not available for a single month purchase.
The theme of April’s box is ‘The It Crowd.’ When I first opened the box there is the little booklet that lists everything that comes in the box. Each product has a description of what it is and explanation on how to use it. The booklet also provides some information of what you can pair each item with. Lastly, the back page includes a Play Pass that can be brought into a Sephora location for a one on one session. If you bring in this card and make a purchase you will also receive a bonus of 50 points. Let’s get into the products!
When I opened up the tissue paper the first thing that I noticed was the Milk Sunshine Oil. I haven’t gotten really into oils because they honestly scare me a bit. I am looking forward to try this multi-purpose product.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2am Kiss- This brand is relatively new to Sephora. I’m usually not excited when I receive perfume samples, but based on the description of this scent, I think I may like this. It is described as a blend of “salty woods and crystallized amber.”
Clinique Pep-start Eye Cream- I’ve been really wanting to step up my skincare game. I’ll admit that I get very lazy with cleansing my face. Now that I’m in my 30s, I’m starting to realize the importance of taking care of the skin. This eye cream is probably the thing that I’m most excited to test out.
Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment- This item I have been wanting to try out for at least the last year. YouTubers all over the world are raving about this and am so happy that I can finally try this out. I’m not sure which one I’m more excited about trying out this or the Clinique eye cream. I will definitely post an update on how this works out for me.
Sephora Colorful Cheek Ink Gel in Peony- Trying out more Sephora brand items has been on my list for awhile now, and I’ve been bored with the blushes I currently have. Because this is a gel formula, I’m thinking that this will be great for a light, natural, dewy look for the summer months.
Lastly, there is the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. I already have a deluxe sample of this item. I love this shade and formula. I’m going to pass this on to my sister, because I don’t need 2 of these.
That’s all that came in my April Play! box. If you want a review or first impression on any of these items, let me know in the comments. Have a great week!
