It’s that time again! My PLAY! BOX has arrived, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
“Step it Up” is the theme for April. It’s all about updating your everyday routine.
Sephora mixed it up with the style of the April PLAY! BOOK. I love the little redhead that takes center stage this month! She’s so cute!
I can’t help but miss the product illustrations! 😦
They didn’t eliminate the doodles completely though, so I’m happy about that!

Peter Thomas Roth – Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream
I don’t think I’ve ever tried any products from Peter Thomas Roth before. I’m always intrigued by brands I’ve never used before.
I’ve substituted this moisturizer into my evening moisturizing routine. It’s a little wet, but I expected that since “water” is in the name! I like it and will finish off the bottle. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing the full size anytime soon though.
Philosophy – Made Simple Face Cleanser
I’ve received this Philosophy sample before but didnt actually try it until it arrived in my PLAY! BOX.
I love that this cleanser works as a makeup remover too. I don’t typically use makeup remover, so I always rely on my face wash to do the job. Sometimes, my face wash doesn’t completely get the job done. This cleanser sure does though!
I’ll definitely be finishing up this bottle. I might save it for traveling though. It’s the perfect sample size to slip into my travel bag!
Smashbox – Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer
As you know, I love testing out different foundation primers. I’ve tried a few Smashbox primers before, but not this one.
I found this primer to be very wet. I’m not a huge fan of the texture either, so I don’t think I’ll be using this primer too often if at all. I will have to see if any of my friends are interested in giving it a try.
Make Up For Ever – Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner
I’ve mentioned in previous posts, that I’m not so good at applying eyeliner. I can’t see well enough and shake a little. That is not a recipe for flawless eyeliner application! 🙂
I love Make Up For Ever products, so I did test this eyeliner out! In the PLAY! BOOK, it gives explanations for easy, medium, and expect eyeliner application. I loved that! I tried out the “easy” application and added a little to my bottom waterline. It was super easy to do, and I liked the look. I think I’ll be adding it to my eye routine a couple times a week!
Sephora Collection – Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
As I mentioned above, I don’t typically use makeup remover. I probably should, but I’m just a little too lazy to add it to my routine.
I do like that Sephora included two products this month that would work on removing the waterproof eyeliner that was also included. That was great thinking on their part!
Although I don’t use remover often, I will save this for a time when I need it.
Miu Miu – L’Eau Bleue
As usual, I’m not a fan of this month’s fragrance sample. I don’t buy this box for the perfume though, so that’s okay!
As I mentioned above, I love the little redhead this month! She is just too cute!
The quote on this month’s bag is pretty fun too! “The best things in life are me!”
This month’s box wasn’t super exciting for me. I love the illustrations and like a few of the products, but I don’t think I discovered any “must have” products for myself this month.
I’m excited to see what next month holds though!
