Sephora Play! May Subscription Box Review

I am really loving the Sephora Play! subscription box! Trying new items from brands that are new to me, as well as receiving items from well known beauty industry giants, has been a blast. Out of two boxes and about ten items, there is not a single item that I will not use or try.

Ready to see May's box? First, check out the cute little pouch it came in:

This month is all about beauty that is good for you and good for your skin. Therefore: MASKS! YAAYY!! When I saw this first item in a spoiler preview, I was SO excited. Korres masks are amazing but usually out of my price range. I am currently loving the idea of sleeping masks, so this was a seriously welcome item. I have tried it twice and my skin feels great.

We were also sent the Origins Maskimizer, a spray that is supposed to make your skin more receptive to masks and the ingredients in them. I had not heard of this before I received it...haven't tried it yet, but I'll report back!

Along with the Maskimizer, we also received samples of Clear Improvement and Drink Up-Intensive, which is another nighttime mask.

For our hair, we were sent the Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair hair mask. You use this in the shower after shampooing. I have very long hair and will probably get just two uses from this, which is OK for a sample. I tried it last night on the bottom half of my hair and didn't see much of a difference. Smells pretty, though.

Makeup time! We were also sent the tiniest, cutest lipstick by Bite Beauty in the color Kim Chi. This color is briiiight! I just broke up with my boyfriend of two years and he hated lipstick, so you already know I've been wearing this!

Look how cute it is!

Tarte is another brand that I was very excited to see in this box! This is the Tartiest lip liner in a nice neutral color. I have heard problems that people are having with this breaking. Since it is a sample size, it is very small, and apparently quite fragile. I do like the color though, so I will use it (carefully!).

The item I was least excited about was the perfume sample. This is Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne. It smells nice but it is not a scent I would buy full size because it is quite fruity.

There you have it! Overall, I am quite impressed by this box and feel that it is well worth the $11 fee. Looking forward to next month already!

  1. I haven't signed up for this because let's be real, I hardly ever wear make up. But it's a great box! That bright lipstick is going to look FAB on you!
