Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription box program. Each month subscribers will receive a box of deluxe samples, along with an exclusive PLAY! BOOK — packed with helpful advice — and a PLAY! PASS to redeem in store for a free one-on-one learning session with a beauty expert. The six product samples in your PLAY! by SEPHORA box are from the same prestige brands Sephora carries in store and online, and they are sized to use multiple times.
The June 2017 Play! by Sephora theme is “Your Summer Starters” and included the following items:
~ (7.5mL) ($5.40): Love! This is a lightweight tinted sunscreen designed for all skin types. It’s formulated without Parabens and Phthalates and is also vegan, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. It gave me just enough coverage without feeling heavy, and the built-in SPF20 is a huge plus. Tarteguard 20 Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen
~ (5mL) ($10.83): The Murad Invisiblur contains an SPF30 and blurs your skin. It’s almost like an Instagram filter in a bottle. It can be worn alone, mixed with your favorite foundation or applied over existing makeup. I prefer it alone. Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++
~ (15mL) ($4): This cream gives your hair texture and body. I air dry my hair most of the time and always like to put something in it, so I don’t get too many flyaways. I still prefer my sea salt spray, but this works too. Bb. Don’t Blow It Fine (H)air Styler
~ (3mL) ($9.09): This is BOLD! The formula is long lasting and quite impressive. It has a matte finish and is highly pigmented. It’s too bold for me, but someone can rock it. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (K-Dub)
~ (0.75oz) ($2.50): Hmm. I have no idea why I received this since my hair is straight and does not even have an ounce of curls/ waves to it. I am going to need to double check my profile to see what’s up with this. Curl Charisma™ Rice Amino + Avocado Leave–In Defining Crème
~ (1.2mL) ($4.46): Alien has notes of Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber. I found it a little heavy for summer, but I will save it and see how I feel about it when the weather cools. Alien Spray
~The Bag: As usual we got a cute little bag that matched the theme this month!
My June 2017 Play! by Sephora had a value of $36.28. That’s a decent value for this box, but it was a bit of a miss for me. The lip color wasn’t what I would select for myself, and the Curl Charisma is not suited for my hair at all. I do still think I got my $10 worth though!
