Play! by Sephora: April 2017

Play! by Sephora: April 2017

I feel like my Play boxes are getting less and less interesting. I just feel like there’s so much that could be done here yet they somehow miss the mark.

First up is the philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser. I actually like Philosophy and I just ran out of my go-to cleanser so this will definitely come in handy. It’s a one-step facial cleanser that is said to tone and hydrate your skin. I’ll definitely try this one out soon!

I’ve got quite a few samples of the Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer in my sample drawer. For some reason I keep getting these. It’s a translucent primer gel that smooths skin and blurs flaws. I guess I can finally give it a try to see if I like it. It’ll be a good thing if I do because I have so many of them laying around!

I’m not sure if I’ve tried anything from Peter Thomas Roth. The Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream sounds interesting. It’s a 30% hyaluronic acid cream that transforms atmospheric vapor into fresh, pure water, providing your skin with a continuous burst of intense hydration that lasts up to 72 hours. Aside from the cleanser I think this is the only other item I’m sort of excited about.

I already have so many makeup removers (seriously I have an entire drawer full!) so I’ll probably pass the Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover onto someone else.

I don’t think I’d mind receiving eyeliners if I was sent different shades. There are only so many black eyeliners you can have laying around. I’ll probably pass the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner onto someone else as well. I would have loved to receive one of the blue or green shades. This is what I mean about missing the mark. They could have increased my excitement with a bit of color!

The perfume sample this month is Miu Miu MIU MIU L’eau Bleue. It’s a little too ‘woodsy’ for my liking. It reminds me more of a cologne than a perfume. It’s not the worst scent in the world, it’s just not something I’d wear. I’ll be passing this one along too.

I’m really hoping for better items next month. I really want something I can get excited about! Take a page from your own book, Sephora, and um… step it up!

Michael Kors Ava Mini Crossbody

Michael Kors Ava Mini Crossbody I’m so sorry about the lack of new posts around here. As I said in my last few posts I’m in the process of moving. I know I said that things would run rather smoothly during the move, but I sort of put the brakes on all of that. I…
