Play! By Sephora Unboxing & Review - January 2017

Let's dig right into the first Play! By Sephora Box of 2017!

The Play! By Sephora box is a beauty subscription service that is $10 per month and includes 5 deluxe beauty samples and a perfume.  Every sample is from a high end brand that is sold at Sephora.  The samples come in a cloth drawstring bag.  You can sign up HERE to get on the waitlist.

The theme for this month's box is Beauty, Set, Go.

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick
This is actually a face cleansing stick.  It's an exfoliating gel cleanser in a solid stick format.  I'm very curious about this product so I was excited to see it in this month's box.

Ouai Treatment Masque
This is a hair mask that will restore damaged hair and leave it smooth and soft.  I enjoy trying hair masks so I was happy to see this in my box this month.  However, this sample was less than half full and in fact, the product inside was very liquid-y and runny which we all know is not very mask-like.  Hair masks are supposed to be thick!  I actually had another sample of this hair mask from a Sephora Favorites set I got during the holidays.  Since the sample in this month's box didn't even cover half my hair, I opened the sample from the Sephora Favorites box and that sample was full AND the product inside was thick!  I wouldn't be so bothered by the half-empty, crap sample in this Play! By Sephora box if it was in fact a FREE sample or a perk I used points on, but it wasn't.  I PAY for this subscription box.  Get it together Sephora!  Besides all that drama, this hair mask was just ok.  I didn't notice anything special happen to my hair like extra shininess or softness.

Tory Burch Love Relentlessly Perfume Sample
This perfume features notes of pink pepper, orris, and patchouli.  I don't love the scent of this perfume, it's a bit pungent and strong.

Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
This is a deep moisturizing face cream that is supposed to brighten and firm the face.  I've been wanting to try something from this brand so I was very happy to see this sample in our box this month.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in Medium
I've tried this once before and I don't remember loving it but I will definitely try this sample.  Hopefully this color will work for me.  To be honest, I think it's annoying when we get complexion products in one shade.  I wonder if everyone got the same shade.  I will be very annoyed if the color doesn't work for me.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
This is a sheer lipstick with a glossy finish in their cult-classic shade, Black Honey.  This lipstick feels so soft and almost like a lip balm.  It gives a pretty sheer wash of a berry color.  I will definitely keep this in my purse.

Clinique Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

Overall I liked this month's Play! By Sephora Box.  I was very annoyed with the hair mask, but I'm excited about the CC Cream, Tarte Cleanser, Clinique lipstick, and the Drunk Elephant face cream!
