Play! by Sephora: August 2017


It looks like another great Play! by Sephora box this month!

First up is the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I’ve actually heard about this quite a bit recently. I’ve been curious about it so I’m pretty excited to give it a try. It’s a fast absorbing body cream that is said to help tighten and smooth the look of skin. It smells nice (very tropical like) and the packaging is pretty cool.

I was surprised to see the beautyblender beautyblender® included in this month’s box. I’ve only ever purchased the regular sized BeautyBlender. So I’m pretty excited to give the mini version a try. I can see it coming in handy for concealer and highlighter.

Another product I was excited to see is the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème in L11. The sample size is pretty generous and the shade appears to be a decent match. Right away I noticed how thick it was. I’m not sure how I’ll get along with that, but I can’t really say until I test it out on my face. So I’ll definitely report back on this one.

I don’t really do dry shampoo and most Living Proof Products just don’t work well for me, but I suppose I could at least give the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo a try. It can’t hurt, right?

The Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil seems like it could come in handy. It’s a cleansing oil that dissolves regular and waterproof mascara. It claims to be effective and gentle. I do have a few mascaras that never seem to budge so I’ll have to put this sample to the test for sure.

Last, but certainly not least is the Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum and the Kat Von D Sinner Eau de Parfum. I actually received deluxe samples of these from Influenster that I have yet to review. I’ll quickly note that I love them both! Keep an eye out for that review!

Overall, I’m very impressed with this month’s box. I received some new-to-me items that are both useful and even exciting. I can’t wait to dig in!

  4. This is a really great Sephora Play box. It seems like theyve stepped it up after beauty lovers started to unsubscribe, me being one of them. I would love to try the Bum Bum Cream, Too Faced cleansing oil, AND both Kat Von D products. Good Job Sephora!
