Play! by Sephora Beauty Subscription Box

A little review! Play by Sephora Beauty subscription box November 2017

A few months back, I received an email from Sephora about open spots for their beauty subscription box. I rarely ever wear makeup and my skincare routine is very simple, so I usually don’t sign up for beauty subscription boxes. Especially since I’ve been on a strict budget for the past couple of months, I, shopaholic extraordinaire, tried to stay away from all of the shops both online and physical. Now that I can loosen my purse strings a little, I’ve been exploring all of the shops and feasting my eyes. This box first drew my attention because it is so inexpensive, only $10! I’ve gotten it for 2 months now, and I want to share this little bit of joy with you!

How it works!

When they have open spots, you are able to subscribe and begin receiving boxes with free shipping. You create a PLAY! PROFILE where you answer questions about your skin, makeup and skincare preferences which they will use to curate your boxes. p.s. They only ship to the US. They usually charge your card within the first few days of the month, and your bow will arrive by the second week of the month.

The box comes with 5 beauty samples either hair products, makeup or skincare and a monthly fragrance bonus item all in a theme specific collectible bag every month.

They have a video for each month detailing how to use the products.

There is a little booklet which has how-tos and product info with a play pass which you can redeem in store for 50 bonus Beauty Insider points and a free one-on-one tutorial.

They also have PLAY! DATES which are monthly meetups to teach you how to get the most out of the products in your box.

Sunday Riley Sunday School Skincare Kit

I have always had skincare woes. From acne to scarring and hyper-pigmentation, I’ve dealt with it all. After turning 18, my skin began to calm down, but I still have frequent breakouts and lingering blackheads, not to mention discoloration and scarring.

So, I have been on the hunt for a product to make my skin the best it can be, especially since I will be taking photos at graduation, and I’m not one for makeup. The Sunday Riley line has been creeping up on my timelines, and it was recommended by an Instagram account I follow, so I decided to give it a try, why not?

The only reputable place I could find the line was at Sephora so I did my research on the products offered. I chose the new Sunday School skincare kit because the products target skin texture and discoloration issues.

The kit comes with 4 products:

  • CEO C+E  Micro-Dissolve Cleansing Oil which removes makeup, unclogs pore, and provides clean smooth complexion.

  • Good Genes lactic acid treatment which exfoliates and reduces appearance of skin aging and dark spots.

  • CEO C+E Protect and Repair Moisturizer which reverses skin aging while hydrating.

  • Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil which soothes the skin for improved texture and complexion.

The kit is sold out online, last I checked, so I had to go in-store to purchase it. Cost: $60 which is expected because of the brand, but beware the containers are tiny. I have only used it once, but will return to give a full review once I run out or if I notice a difference. Hopefully this works, because I have always yearned for clear skin!

Do you struggle with skincare? What works for you?
