It is that time again, the time I receive my Sephora Play box in the mail! I feel like I am still testing out the products i got last month, time really doesn’t slow down now does it? I looked at the spoilers for the possible boxes this month and the one I received was the one I was hoping for!
Lets see the products:
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Anti-Aging Collagen Booster
This is the item I was most excited about, quite frankly it is almost the only product I am excited about. I have been very into serums lately, they just feel so great on the skin. I cannot wait to add this one to my collection and try it out! It says to apply day and night but I think this will be best used in the morning because it smells of citrus which would be a great wake up call in the AM. The packaging is great too, the sample size will last long because a little serum goes a long way and it comes in a beautiful glass bottle.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This product is a hit because I do love this primer, but it is also a miss because I have SO may primers in my collection right now. More specifically I have so many samples of this exact primer! I will of course use it, I adore primers and Smashbox is such a great brand. I only wish I had received something I have never tried before and would get me more excited.
Dr Dennis Gross Freulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel
This product or should I say products because you receive two treatments, confused me at first. I then realized they are pads that have strong anti-aging ingredients in them, retinol being the main one. When thinking of anti-aging retinol is the ingredient you want to deal with, it is powerful and works extremely well. You wipe these pads all over a dry, clean face at night which gives the ingredients time to sink in. When you wake up in the AM you will have radiant, younger looking skin! Seems pretty perfect doesn’t it? Two treatments is not enough to see real results but it is still a cool product to try out. Just make sure you apply sunscreen in the morning because retinol makes you light sensitive! I am excited to try this and the packaging makes it easy to use and travel friendly.
Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
This product came at the perfect time because I am almost out of my remover. The products I have tried from the Sephora Collection I have enjoyed, so I am happy to try a new item from the line. I do not wear a lot of waterproof makeup mainly since I do not wear mascara and that is the most common waterproof makeup item. However, since it is waterproof it gives me the impression that it will be stronger than your average eye makeup remover, making it easy to get off pesky long-wearing eyeshadow and eyeliners!
Makeup For Ever Aqual XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner
This is only a miss because do I really need ANOTHER black eyeliner?! The answer is no, so much no. I am excited this product is by Make Up For Ever though, I have heard so many incredible things about this brand and am stoked to have something from them. This eyeliner is very long wearing which is no surprise because “For Ever” is literally in the title, and the swatch took forever to remove. This seems like a great choice to apply in the waterline because it won’t budge!!
This box was certainly not my favorite. The products were not bad by any means, they just didn’t particularly excite me. Some of these will be used and some may be put into my giveaway pile. I still always love Sephora Play for the brands they include!
