So this months Sephora Play! box got lost in all the chaos of these past few weeks. Plus it was actually a really good box. So my apologies for not getting this posted sooner. Like always I'm going to tell you each thing that was in the box and then briefly give you my thoughts on each item.
Chocolate Soleil Bronzer by Too Faced
Blotterazzi by Beauty Blender
Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer by Smashbox
Deep Cleanser by First Aid Beauty
Citrine by Nest
Wave Spray by OUAI
Chocolate Soleil Bronzer: This was in a thin plastic casing of the famous bronzer from Too Faced. I actually own the full size and I love it. It smells like chocolate and to me I like the Chocolate better than the Milk Chocolate Bronzer because the Chocolate works better for contouring. I like my bronzers a bit cooler in tone so that I can use them as bronzer and contour. It's really really nice. This was quite small but still the pan itself was decent sized.
Blotterazzi: I'll be honest, for some reason blotting oil with a slice of sponge really grosses me out. I feel like that would breed bacteria especially if you're just throwing it in your bag without a casing. Aside from that I still don't see the point in having a thin sponge to absorb oil that you have to wash. I much prefer oil sheets. I understand this helps with touch ups and I could totally see that but for blotting I just am not interested in it. Sorry!! BUT I do think it's very cool that they included one in the box because as you know Beauty Blender isn't a cheap brand.
Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer: I don't like the original Photo Finish primer by Smashbox that is super well known. So I didn't have high hopes for this but I actually love it! I like this better than most of my smoothing primers I have that are also pore minimizing. I truly do like this primer I wish it was a tad bigger in size but I understand the size based on how big some of the other stuff was.
Deep Cleanser: This is a Red Clay cleanser. First Aid Beauty is really coming up strong in the skin care game I feel, and are making themselves known. There's no doubt they have some amazing products. I had never gotten to try this cleanser. I've been using it with my Foreo Luna and I really like it. I don't know if I notice that much of a difference but it's still a nice cleanser that does it's job. So it's neither here nor there for me so far but I will continue to use it.
Citrine perfume: I see NEST everywhere I look in Sephora. As you already know I'm not keen on perfumes since I'm so particular with scents and how they mess with my head. This was ok, but it smelt super similar to Clinique Happy or maybe Clinique Happy Heart. Which used to be my favorite perfume when I was younger but now it just gives me a headache.
Wave Spray: I was so, so, so pumped to see this in the box. This is such a HUGE size that is actually sold at Sephora in the travel section for like $12 I think. Which is more than this whole box costs. Plus this is a really buzzed about hair product line from Jen Atkins who has been a celebrity hairstylist for years and recently launched her own line into Sephora. Everyone loves the entire line and honestly it's fair priced. I have the Texturizing Hair Spray as well, it smells amazing and it works so good. This Wave Spray is no different, it smells amazing also and gives you that beachy wave you're looking for. So this is what made the box for me this month.
I think this box has been my favorite so far. Mind you I've only had 3 boxes. I'm gonna leave the link here where you can sign up for the subscription service if you're interested. It's $10 a month, well $10.93 when it's all said and done. It comes with a pamplet and then a bonus card that if you present it in store, you get an extra 50 Beauty Insider points with any purchase you make and that card expires in a month I believe. So it's a really cool subscription service (the only one I was interested in doing) and I really love what I'm seeing so far.
