Hello, Beauty Gurus!
It’s that time again! My PLAY! By Sephora box has arrived, so let’s dive on in!
“Beauty Staycation” is the theme for the July 2017 PLAY! box!
The July PLAY! BOOK includes lots of beauty and skincare tips for when you’re on vacation or just relaxing at home.
My favorite travel tip is packing your compacts with cotton rounds so the powder doesn’t break in transit! I’m definitely doing that the next time I go on a trip! A broken compact (spilled all over your pants) is guaranteed to ruin ANY day! 😦
Here’s a look at the July PLAY! BOOK. The “How to use/How to apply” section is my favorite each month. Sometimes, I just really need to be told exactly how to use a product! Don’t you?
- Bobbi Brown – Eye Opening Mascara
- Fresh – Rose Face Mask
- Briogeo – Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray
- Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick – Set Sail
- Caudalie – Vine[Activ] Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum
- Clean Reserve – Sueded Oud
- Drawstring Bag
Bobbi Brown – Eye Opening Mascara
I love a good mascara sample! I’ve received so many since subscribing to my first subscription box that I won’t need to buy any for a long, long time! Sometimes, I still do though! 🙂
This is my second Bobbi Brown mascara sample. I also have the Smoky Eye Mascara. Between the two, I prefer the Smokey Eye.
As you can see in the photo above, the Eye Opening Mascara is very chunky, which makes it hard for me to apply. There’s very little space between the handle and the spooli, so it’s hard to coat all my lashes without getting some product on my face. I don’t imagine that would be a problem with the full-size mascara though!
Fresh – Rose Face Mask
I love Fresh so trying their products is always fun for me!
I’m not usually a face mask person, but I decided to give this one a go! I’ve already used it twice now.
This mask has more of a gel texture, so it’s super easy to wash off without making a huge mess. I’ve been putting it on after I get out of the shower and leaving it on while I brush my teeth and clean my makeup sponge. So far, it’s working out pretty well.
Briogeo – Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray
I’m a HUGE believer in leave-in conditioner. I use it every, single night!
I use conditioner for two things. One is obviously conditioning and the other is as a detangler. This Briogeo conditioner works wonderfully to condition my hair but doesn’t work so well at detangling.
I do think it’ll work pretty well after I use my favorite Briogeo hair mask though. I meant to try them together the other night but completely forgot until after applied a different conditioner!
Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick – Set Sail
I love Tarte lipsticks! I keep one in my purse (along with five other lip products!) at all times.
When I first saw the color of this lipstick, I didn’t think the dark nude shade was for me. However, after applying, I’ve decided that I love it! It’s a great natural, neutral shade for everyday wear.
Caudalie – Vine[Activ] Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum
I may only be 23 years old, but I’m a big fan of wrinkle cream! It’s never too early to start preventing wrinkles, right?!
I’ve been out of my usual wrinkle cream for a few weeks now (whoopsie!), so this sample couldn’t have come at a better time!
I love how this serum smells. It has a very earthy, planty scent like it came straight from the garden! Very nice!
Clean Reserve – Sueded Oud
Surprisingly enough, I like the way this month’s fragrance sample smells! I still probably won’t wear it though. Perfume wafting all around doesn’t usually end well for me.
How cute is this month’s gingham bag?! I am ALL about it!
“Glamp out!” is pretty cute too!
I’m pretty pleased with the majority of this month’s products!
