Sephora Play! First Impressions: January


This month Play! box is called Happy You Year, and the theme is A Beautiful 2018. The paper that tells about the products also has a challenge for each month designed to help up your beauty game. For January, drink the proper amount of water, for March eat more greens, things like that.


The bag this month is quite cute is has a girl holding a banner with the words “Happy You Year” and the year 2018 above. The bag itself is the classic white drawstring, with a light blue ribbon.

I’m very excited about this months products, so let’s  get right to it!


BOSCIA Exfoliating Peel Gel $34.00

This sounds really interesting and I can’t wait to try it out, I think I have used an exfoliating peel gel before, but I’m not positive.

“A gel peel that exfoliates gently using AHAs and removes impurities for a bright, soft skin”



I used this blush this morning and it’s beautiful! it applied nicely and the color works really well for me. It is a pretty light pinky coral color.

“A pressed powder blush in a soft shimmery peach for a hint of warm cheek color.”


GLAMGLOW Super Cleanse Clearing Cream-To-Foam Cleanser $32.00

I have used this cleanser before and I absolutely loved it so I was very happy to find it in this month box. This makes my skin feel so nice and fresh.

“Ultra-creamy cleanser uses a blend of three charcoals to clear pores and remove excess oil and makeup”



I absolutely love this lip gloss! When I first pulled it out of the bag I was worried that is was a liquid lipstick, and you know how I feel about those( My Thoughts On Liquid Lipstick ) but thankfully it was a gloss. This feels so comfortable on, not too sticky or gooey, just creamy and glossy.

The color is gorgeous as well it is a little darker then I would normally wear in a gloss, but used lightly it is the perfect nude.

” An opaque high-pigment lip gloss in a desert-sand shade for shiny, lacquered lips”


CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream $26.50

I used this eye cream this morning and it seems really nice, very refreshing and slightly cooling.  I’ll have to test it out further and let you know what my final thoughts are.

” A hydrating and brightening under-eye cream that’s easy to pop in your bag for pick-me-ups throughout the day.”


GLOSS MODERNE Clean Luxury Masque $65.99

Instead of the usual perfume sample, they included a mask! This is great because one, my hair is in dire need of some TLC, and two I didn’t really need more perfume samples.

“A deep conditioning mask that repairs damaged strands and eliminate frizz for soft, healthy hair”

I’m really excited to try this out this week.


Final thoughts are that this was a great box to start off the year. I will be using all the products and can’t wait to test them out more.

What are your thoughts on this months box? Have you tried any of these products?
