January Sephora Play 2017 Review

February 10, 2017

Always a late review with my Sephora Play box, but I'm spilling all the details on January's Sephora Play Box!

This month Sephora Play has begun to customize their boxes to your Beauty Profile needs. I do love that these boxes are moving to be more customized, but wish you could choose between the mix of products.

Other products in the January 2017 Play Box consisted of AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, YouthToThePeople Kale + Spinach + Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Cream, Caudalie Resveratrol Lift, Dermablend, Wild Child Eau De Parfum Towelette, Boscia B.B. Cream, and Farmacy Honey Potion. 

TARTE FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser 

This product is a stick exfoliating cleanser with Rainforest of the Sea complex. Overall all this is a really gritty gel stick that gets rid of dead surface cells and cleans the skin. I did feel like this did a Clarisonic-esque-cleansing job which my skin has needed lately. I took a long hiatus from using my Clarisonic and now I feel like I need it more than ever. I like that this cleanser can also be used as a mask if you leave it on for 10 minutes or so. I did find myself a little amazed with how good this made me skin feel. The Tarte Scrub Cleansing set is $12 and includes a .22 oz of this product and two other goodies in case you're thinking of purchasing a mini.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

For all the hype that Clinique has I really haven't tried a lot of their products. I have been eyeing the Clinique for Crayola Chubby Sticks though, hello beautiful!

This lipstick is ultra-light and not a gloss or lipstick. It fuses with your natural lip color and creates a unique lip look. Honestly, I was hoping Black Honey would have a Kat Von D Homegirl kind of color, but it didn't. It had more of a Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm feel without the color BM packs. You can get a $36 Honey Honey, Set from Clinique with two Almost Lipsticks and two sweet pots. Not a bad deal if you're a fan of this lipstick line. This lipstick did help me get me through my viral infection and I am very thankful for its moisturizing nature. I do like Chubby Sticks more.
 Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream

I love getting creams in my Play box, definitely one of the reasons why I love this subscription. I was so surprised when I tried this moisturizer. It was so heavy, fluffy, and moisturizing in the best way possible. Plus it has 6 Rare African Oils! What really shocked me was the longevity of this product. I usually have to moisturize twice in the morning and night. However when I woke up one morning having put this cream on the night before, my face was still very moisturized and brighter. Magic! I think this product may be a game changer for me. I'll definitely be spending Beauty Bank points on this product if its a perk option.

IT COSMETICS Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Medium

I was so surprised at how much I liked this CC+ Cream. It matched my skin perfectly and was a nice alternative to wearing foundation. I am obsessed with this product it has SPF 50 in it and anti-aging serum! A lot of reviewers of this product said that it helped with their acne which is nice to hear. I liked using it both as a foundation and as a concealer. Would definitely consider getting another travel size!

OUAI Treatment Max

I'll be the first to admit I am hesitant to try OUAI products. Especially after the whole wave spray fiasco from the summer. This mask is super liquid-y with a lotion like consistency. It has a light rosy smell and a pink-ish tint. You shampoo, possibly condition, leave the mask in for 5-10 minutes, chill out, and then wash it out. I did have to use quite a bit of product on the first try to cover from scalp to tip. Overall I did like the results of this mask finding that it made my hair feel super clean.
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly

This is a strong perfume containing pink pepper, rose, orris, sandalwood. I think the pink pepper is definitely the strongest part of this scent. Its a warm floral scent but I don't notice the floral notes at all compared to the strong pink pepper. This is a nice scent overall. I think it'd be a good gift. The rollerball is an affordable $28!

Overall this month's box was good to me. I am still a bit disappointed I didn't get to try the Farmacy Honey Potion, but there's always next time right? I am obsessed with Lala Retro Whipped Cream and would definitely try another IT Cosmetics CC cream! What are you upto this weekend? Hope everyone has a great weekend, it's unusually warm here in Kansas but I'm not complaining.

  1. You got a great box! I think the honey potion and lala retro were the two most popular items in the boxes lol. I got honey potion but I also wouldn't have minded getting the lala ;) My mom loves that clinique lipstick so I passed it onto her. Hopefully they offer it as a point perk at some point cause I would love to try it :D I surprisingly really liked the tarte cleansing stick! Usually physical exfoliators aren't my thing but this one was awesome :)

  22. That stick exfoliator looks like it would be really fun to try! I remember wearing Clinique's Black Honey when I was younger, and now I kind of want to try it again to see if I still like it. I'm drawn to more natural lip colors, so I like how it's kind of sheer.
