I skipped last month’s review, even though it was a great box. I just couldn’t get around to reviewing it. This month’s box was fantastic. I received lot’s of great samples. If you’re a frequent Sephora shopper I highly recommend trying out the Play! By Sephora box. It’s worth the $10 IMHO.


Play! By Sephora April 2017 Box Review
This month’s goodies!
1.) OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum

Size & Price: Received Sample Size (0.25 oz). Full size (1 oz) retails for $48.00
What it is: A powerful antiaging serum formulated with vitamin C and collagen for brightening and all-day hydration.
My thoughts: Not sure why they keep sending me anti-aging products when I’m only 23. I’m not complaining, though. David is 40, so I let him try out the products. 😀

2.) Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Size & Price: Received Sample (0.25 oz). Full size (1 oz) retails for $36.00.
What it is: A translucent primer gel that smooths skin and blurs flaws—for makeup that looks better and lasts longer on set.
My thoughts: My go to primer! I was thrilled to have received this in my box. I used to use Benefit’s POREfessional, but this is even better than that. It works great even if you have large pores. It might feel a little silky on your skin, but it absorbs pretty quickly to hide all your pores.

3.) MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner

Size & Price: Received Sample Size (0.01 oz). Full size (0.04 oz) retails for $21.00.
What it is: A long-wearing, waterproof eye pencil that pairs ultra-creamy glide with instant color intensity.
My thoughts: One of the creamiest eyeliner’s I’ve ever tried, and the color payoff is great! You can never have enough eyeliner.

4.) Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume

Size & Price: Received Sample Size (0.057 oz). Travel size (0.25 oz) retails for $28.00.
What it is: Minimalist, fresh, and clean fragrance is hypoallergenic and ideal for those who don’t normally wear perfume
My thoughts: It’s supposed to be hypoallergenic, but it smells strong. My whole box reeked of this perfume that’s how strong it was unopened. It reminds me of those perfumes my grandmother would wear when I was a kid.

5.) Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare – Ferulic Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel

Size & Price: Received 2 treatment packs. Full size (16 treatments) retails for $88.00.
What it is: A doctor’s dose of potent retinol that exfoliates and achieves a smoother, textured appearance for healthy-looking skin.
My thoughts: Another anti-aging product for my boyfriend to try! I used one of the two peels I was given and was impressed. It didn’t irritate my skin and my face felt clean and rejuvenated. You know how after you get a facial your face feels fresh and clean, and the next day your skin is glowing and smooth. That’s how this mask worked for me! I’m tempted to buy the full size now.

6.) SEPHORA COLLECTION Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Size & Price: Received Sample Size (0.84 oz). Full size (6.76 oz) retails for $15.00.
What it is: A waterproof eye makeup remover suitable for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes.
My thoughts: I  accidentally bought a waterproof eyeliner that I didn’t feel like returning, so I’ve been trying to use it up as quickly as possible. It does what it says. It doesn’t make my eyes feel itchy or irritated like some removers do, and it removes even the hardest or waterproof eyeliners.


I don’t really like the actual bag itself. It’s kind of ugly. My 5-year-old loves it, so I gave it to her. I did however like the all of the products except for the grandma smelling perfume, so that’s what counts.

Rating for April: ★4 out of 5 stars.★

FTC: I pay for my own box!
