Play! by Sephora Subscription Box Review - June 2016


The Minimalists


This is a review of a fairly new cosmetics subscription box from Sephora for only $10 a month including shipping. This is my 2nd box so far and the retail value of this box is $27.81 which is pretty good. Last month's box value was higher. I really enjoyed the last one and this one was fun too. Included in the June box were the following products:
  1. Tocca Beauty - Florence Fragrance, .05 fl. oz., $1.99 retail value 
  2. BareMinerals - bareSkin Bronzer, .10 fl. oz., $2.80 value
  3. Benefit Cosmetics - They're Real! Mascara, .1 oz., $8.00 value
  4. Becca - Backlight Priming Filter Primer, .20 fl. oz., $7.60 value
  5. Bumble & Bumble - Don't Blow It Hair Styler, .5 fl. oz., $3.10 value
  6. Tarte - Tarteguard 30, .23 fl. oz., $4.32 value
I love the BareMinerals line of cosmetics, so I quickly gave their new liquid bronzer a try. Bronzers usually make my skin look dirty so I avoid them, but this one since it's a liquid and sheer it worked well on my fair skin. It goes on like a tinted serum and it's to apply. I've received a sample of the They're Real Mascara before and I like it, but it's not my favorite. I was also anxious to give Becca's primer a try since that's a brand I had never tried before. It made my dry skin look very oily after a few hours, so that was very disappointing. If you have tried it, how'd it work on your skin? I used it under BareMinerals Complexion Rescue liquid and it's matching setting powder. I keep forgetting to try the Bumble & Bumble hair styler, so I'll try to remember to use that tonight. It's perfect for me since I air dry my hair. I haven't had a need to try the Tarte sunscreen yet, so I'm saving that for our next trip to a winery or state park. The Tocca perfume is lovely. It's a fresh floral scent that is very feminine. It features bergamot which I love, violet petals and blonde wood. As shown above, Sephora also included a little cloth bag with a ribbon drawstring closing. This was another enjoyable box from Sephora and I'm anxious to receive my 3rd one later this month. Here's a video explaining this month's products:
