My Sephora Play box is finally here!

It seems like it takes longer to get here every month, but I  think that’s just because I just because I’m impatient. For all you lovely people outside the US and Candida, I’m afraid these boxes are still unavailable( get your act together Sephora!).

You can find out more about Sephora’s subscription box (here).

This month the theme is Me o’clock, so everything focuses on pampering and feeling pretty, which is pretty much the same as every month, to be honest.

Without farther ado, lets talk about whats in the box.

ORIGIN Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

This mask is meant to be a gentle yet highly effective charcoal mask that draws out impurities for clearer pores.

I used this mask last night, and I absolutely loved it! My skin felt clean and soft, and the texture seemed improved. Obviously, I can’t say how it works when used regularly, but so far I would say it’s amazing.

IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm

I was going to use this in my hair today but I forgot, oops……..

The paper says that this is a nourishing leave-in conditioner that boosts your hair’s hydration for a shiny, frizz-free style. So it sounds like just what my hair needs right now, and I can’t wait to try it out.

PERRICONE MD H2 Elemental Energy Hydrating Cloud Cream 

Again, I need to keep these where I can see them because I keep forgetting to test them out. This is said to be a lighter-than-air face cream that refreshed the skin and delivers moisture that lasts.

I rubbed a little of this on the back of my hand just now and it feels light and soft, like the feeling you get from the Smashbox primer, and once it socked in it just felt smooth.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara 

I have heard a lot of good things about this mascara, so I was super excited to see in this months box.

I have been using this mascara for a couple of days, and I love the way it makes my lashes look, they are longer and super volumized. I also really like the shape of the wand, it’s chubby on both ends and narrow in the center, I find that wands shaped like this work really well for me. However I do have one major problem with this mascara, and that is that it tends to flake. By the end of the day I will have so smudging and quite a few little bits of mascara under my eyes.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Ultra Shine Lip Gel in Perfect Nude 

I have never used any of the Sephora collection before so I was interested to try out this lip gel. This is basically a lipgloss, a very nice lipgloss in fact. I have worn this a couple of times and I really like the way it feels on my lips, it reminds me a lot of the NYX butter glosses. The color is a really pretty peachy nude, I have to wear this with a lip liner or else it won’t really show up on me.DSC_0192

BURBERRY My Burberry Blush Perfume

This is a floral scent, with notes of lemon, pomegranate, jasmine, wisteria, rose, and geranium. This perfume is very similar to the ones I have gotten for Sephora before, all light, fruity florals.

I’m very happy with this months box, I know I will use all the products and I’m excited to test them out farther.

Have you tried any of these products before?

Anna.

    Velvet Noir is my favourite mascara of all time. It really is fantastic. I’m really keen to try the Perricone MD Cloud Cream too – I really like a lot of their other skincare. And come on Sephora, I need you in the UK already!! xx

    I have a sample of Velvet Noir that I haven’t tried yet, can’t wait to use it now! But I’ll definitely watch out for flaking and smudging haha. The Origins mask looks lovely as well, all together definitely worth the money! 🙂

  4. mmmm I don’t think I like this one as much as previous months box, maybe because there’s a bit more skincare. Still wish we had it in the UK though!

  7. I’m forever gutted you can’t get this box in the UK as it always has so many great products!
    That Origins masks looks great, I’d love a full review and you’d opinion on whether it’s worth picking up after you’ve used it for a while. That Sephora lip colour looks gorgeous too!
