Have you heard about the new Sephora subscription box? I just found out about it in April. I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline, minding my business, and a post popped up from a fellow beauty blogger. I swear we are some of the biggest enablers. LOL! As soon as I saw the post, I had to find out more. I saw that there was a waiting list, so I decided to go ahead and sign up. I thought maybe the wait would be like the Ipsy waitlist, but I quickly found out that it was not the same. Within three weeks, I was off the list and all set to receive my first Play! By Sephora box for May.
So far, I’ve been happy with the items that I’ve received. I think in total for all three Play! By Sephora boxes, there may have been 2-3 items that I wouldn’t use. That’s awesome compared to some of the other boxes that I’ve tried over the years. I’ve received some boxes that were complete duds from other companies.
Play! By Sephora Box Basics:
- The cost of the subscription is $10, plus tax.
- The boxes ship after the 15th of the month but you are billed on the 1st.
- Each month Sephora hosts a Play Date for you to meet and try the items in your box with other subscribers.
- Your Play Pass entitles you to a free one on one tutorial.
- You will receive 50 points for purchasing any full-sized item from the box.
- You will receive 5 deluxe samples and a bonus perfume sample.
- All items arrive in a collectible bag.
July Box Items:
Sephora Play Pass – each pass must be redeemed within 30 days to receive the 50 points and receive your one-on-one tutorial.
Nest Fragrances in Citrine – the fragrance contains lotus flower, freesia, and citrus notes with a woodsy base.
blotterazzi by BeautyBlender – a cushion blotter that is reusable and washable, much like a Beauty Blender. The blotterazzi is used throughout the day to absorb oil and reduce shine without moving your makeup. I’m seriously looking forward to giving this a try!
Ouai Wave Spray – a texture mist that leaves hair with volume, shine, and effortless waves. This is the only item in the box that I don’t have a use for at the moment.
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser – a gentle lightweight cleanser that contains antioxidants and botanicals. The cleanser is paraben, alcohol, fragrance, and dye-free. Great for sensitive skin.
Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics – a soft matte liquid bronzer that creates a warm shimmer free look.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – a lightweight silicone-based primer that creates a flawless finish by extending the wear of your makeup. I love this primer, but I would like to try the pore refining version.
