Are you as excited about Sephora Play Box as I am?
This is my very first Sephora Play box, and I am ready to unbox it right here with all of you, my beauty loving friends!
See what products I got in this month’s box and my first impressions.
Will I continue receiving Sephora Play Boxes for months to come, or will I go back to being a subscription box sceptic?
Find out right now!
A bit about Sephora Play Box
Subscription services are seriously everywhere these days, so of course Sephora wasn’t about to miss out on all the fun, (or profits!)
For a reasonable $10 per month, Sephora promises a curated collection of 5 high-end beauty samples, plus one “bonus” perfume sample in each box. Plus, you’ll also receive a coupon you can redeem in-store for 50 extra Beauty Insider points.
Milk Makeup Blur Stick // [Sephora]
This is a pretty hyped-up product that I’m very excited to try out and review! The stick is utterly minuscule, but it’s enough to see if I’m interested in purchasing the full size.
I’m always happy to see “trending” products included in subscription boxes. It shows that the curators are listening to their customers.
Grande Lips Lip Plumper in Clear // [Sephora]
This product is new to me. Though to be fair, I’m satisfied with the size of my lips and so I don’t really go out in search of plumping products. Plus, my lips are sensitive and I worry that things like this will cause them to burn to a crisp and fall off.
It’s a reasonably sized sample tube that will provide a few good uses. Perfect for traveling and on-the-go endeavors.
Trèstique Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose Stick in Maldives Luminescent // [Sephora]
Not gonna lie, this brand is one of the reasons why I cancelled my Ipsy subscription. >> Read more about that right here. I just got tired of seeing it, as I was never a fan of the products I received from this brand.
Makeup in stick-form is perfect for traveling, (clearly something I’ve got on the brain right about now,) so I’m actually excited to give this brand a second try.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask // [Sephora]
A rather chemical-y smelling mask that claims to be perfect for all skin types, and helps to resurface the skin and reduce appearance of pores.
If this works, it just might be my new favorite thing. (Don’t worry, review coming soon.)
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt // [Sephora]
When I first saw this, I thought it was a body scrub. But it’s not, it’s a salt scrub for your hair. Huh?
If you read my recent post on co-washing then you know all about my hair problems. I’m open to anything, and so I’m cautiously optimistic that perhaps a salt scrub is exactly what my hair needs.
Nest Black Tulip Perfume // [Sephora]
Notes of patchouli, pink pepper, and Japanese violet. I’m not a perfume connoisseur, but it smells nice to me. Kind of a sweet and musky scent in my opinion. Definitely a sample I’m happy to have, and that I might actually use.
What else comes in the box?
As mentioned above, you also receive a coupon redeemable for 50 Beauty Insider points in each box.
You also receive a little pamphlet telling you a little about each product.
The products come stuffed in a little pouch, which is nice, but sadly it’s not a really usable bag. While cute, the closure and shape clearly aren’t designed for functionality.
I do appreciate the thought, though.
That’s all for today!

I’m thinking about subscribing but I’m still not sure. This is your first box? Are you going to stay subscribed? Thanks in advance!
Hi Quinn! Yes, this is my first box. I’m pretty happy with it, although I’m not as wowed as I thought I would be. I do plan on staying subscribed at least for the next two months or so to give it a good chance. If I’m still not impressed after that, then I’ll probably cancel. I like to give things a good go before I quit! Thanks so much for reading 🙂 xo
I signed up for Sephora Play in the first month it was released and I haven’t been disappointed since then. I like it because you receive products that Sephora actually sells so if you love something it is easy to buy it. I don’t think I’ll ever unsubscribe.
I’m glad you love it, Skye! Thanks for your comment 🙂 xo
