I just received my first Play! by Sephora box.  Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription beauty box.  For ten dollars, you receive five deluxe samples of beauty products sold at Sephora as well as a perfume sample and card to redeem in Sephora stores for 50 extra beauty insider points.

A number of years ago I subscribed to a different beauty box and wasn’t overly impressed with what I received each month and have been skeptical of subscription boxes ever since.  The Sephora box has been getting good reviews on products received so I decided to give it a try.  Here’s what was in my January box:

sephora play january 2017

Tarte frxxxtion stick – exfoliating gel cleanser in a unique twist-up format transforms from a solid gel to a cleansing lather that gently sloughs away impurities.  I actually tried this a couple of months ago and really liked it.  It left my skin really soft.  I’m excited to have another sample.

Farmacy honey potion renewing antioxidant hydration mask – honey-based warming gel mask transforms into a decadent cream while evening skin tone, hydrating, and brightening.  I am not familiar with this brand but am really excited to try this one!

Ouai treatment masque – restorative mask helps to care for damaged hair and leaves strands feeling smooth and touchably soft.  Another brand I am not familiar with but am really excited to have a hair mask.  My hair can always usea good deep condition.

Clinique almost lipstick in black honey – sheer lip color with a glossy finish in the bestselling, cult-classic black honey shade.  This is the product I am most excited to have in my box this month.  I’ve almost purchased this product multiple times and am so happy to finally have it.  I love that it’s a deluxe sample size because it’s so hard to actually finish a lip product.

AmorePacific color control cushion compact broad spectrum spa 50+ – cushion format CC cream hydrates, protects skin and delivers build able, weightless coverage in two bendable shades.  I really wish the color I received was lighter.  The color is much too dark for me to wear as a CC cream, maybe it will work as a bronzer.

Tory Burch love relentlessly – unabashedly feminine and tender, this delicate scent features notes of pink pepper, orris and patchouli.

Overall, I am really excited to try these products.  Have you used any of them?  I would love to hear your thoughts!
