Hi friends! Today I have the Sephora Play! July Subscription! Yay! So I recently saw that Sephora points expire after 18 months. Basically, that means no more stocking up. That’s going to make it harder to save for those large ticket rewards.
I’m not in an uproar about it but it still stinks. Let’s get started with the review!
Here’s the cute bag that all my items came in. They also had the product description pamphlet.
Here is the first side of the fold out pamphlet. This features fun ways to relax and pamper yourself while at home and on vacation.
The second side features all the products that I received in my bag. I was pretty happy this month. I either got products I love or products that I wanted to try. Score!
Here is a quick shot of all the items from this month.
Let’s breakdown the items…
This is the VineActive serum by Caudalie. This is a glow activating anti-wrinkle treatment. Caudalie has a patented Anti-Cell Burn-out Complex that helps skin damage caused by pollution, stress and other problems caused by, well, life.
The back of this serum has instructions on how much product to apply. After cleaning and toning, apply to your face and neck. You can use it under you makeup also. 🙂
This is seriously one of my favorite face masks. I always make sure I have some on hand when travelling or just to use at home. This gel mask hydrates and tones and has a nice addition of rosewater and rose petals.
The pack of the canister has the how to directions, distribution information, and the 0.5 fluid ounces. I love that you can use this mask daily. Apply all over your face, watch your eyes and mouth, and rinse clean in five to ten minutes.
Here is a close-up shot of the rose face mask. You can see all the textures in there and the small pieces of rose petals. The smell is so lovely and not overpowering. This reminds me of how hot and sour soup looks but all rosy.
The third item is Briogeo’s Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioner Treatment. Phew. That was a lot to say. This product isn’t greasy thank the stars. I’m so picky with leave-in treatments and this I liked. This milk spray is a mix of coconut, rose, and argan oil.
The back of the bottle has an ingredient list and a quick reading about their product. This treatment is sulfate-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, phthalate-free, has no artificial colors and No DEA. Yay! All you have to do to use this spray it onto clean, wet hair and either blow dry or air dry your hair.
This is a lipstick from Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea line in shade ‘Set Sail’. I really liked the color of the tube and the lipstick shade.
The bottom of the tube has the shade name in the middle and the distribution information. This product is 0.035 ounces. Did you know that all the Rainforest of the Sea products contain algae and marine flowers to help soften and smooth areas that you apply makeup to?
The shade ‘Set Sail’ is a pretty dark rose shade that has a mild scent and a buttery texture. You can apply this by using a lip brush or applying directly. Start in the middle over to the corners of your lips.
Here is an arm swatch of Set Sail. I love this color. For the most part, this shade is pretty long-lasting and is full-coverage.
The fifth product is a Bobbi Brown’s Eye Opening mascara. This formula is supposed to thicken, curl and lift your lashes. This product also boasts how easy it is to remove after application.
The other side of the tube just has the name of the mascara and a barcode.
Here is a shot of the applicator. The instructions say to remove this mascara, just use warm water. I liked this mascara but I hated how the product didn’t fully coat the applicator brush.
The fragrance of the month is from Clean and is the scent ‘Sueded Oud’. I adore Clean perfumes because of how the packaging is recyclable and everything is cruelty-free.
The back of the sample has the ingredients and the ounces (0.05) it is flammable.
The inside of the tester has a sustainable mission statement and information about the perfume. The Fragrance Family is described as Earthy and Woody. The top notes are: Honeysuckle, blue cypress, and bitch wood. The middle notes are: Temple oud and night blooming Jasmine. The base notes are: Soft suede, gold patchouli, and black amber.
That’s it for the July Sephora Play! Subscription. How do you all feel about the upgraded membership for the one-time only black box? What about the points? Xo
Hey everybody! I finally got everything figured out with my website as far as the mapping and technical aspects go. I received this box yesterday but I was feeling quite like Jack Torrance because I’ve been snowed in my house for three days so for my sanity I took some time outside. Anywhooo, back to the Sephora Play! Box.
This month was all about shine. Products from Benefit, Glamglow, Josie Maran, Bobbi Brown, Living Proof, and Chloé.
