July 2016 Play! By Sephora Review

       

Do school supplies lists irritate anyone else? It can't possibly be just me. I mean I understand needing the basics (paper, pencils, ect) but why am I buying more cleaning products than those needed essentials? It frustrates me to no end. Ugh, but let's focus on something that's definitely not frustrating, the July Play! By Sephora!



So if you aren't familiar with this box, you should be... Like, now. Play by Sephora is a monthly beauty subscription service curated by Sephoras beauty experts. The box features a wide variety of brands but most are the middle to high end brands that I love the most. And the most awesome thing? It's only $10 per month. Yup... It's fantastic!


I seriously adore the little baggies we get each month. The hold a nice amount and the graphics are always so cute. I'm diggin' the Popsicle on this one!


The theme for July's box is Effortless Summer and, as always, the beautiful little foldout contains loads of information on the products featured in your box. I know that there were a few product variations this time around so what I received in my box may differ slightly from some others.


NEST Citrine Perfume --- It's no secret that I have a general dislike of perfume samples but I love this one! It has a wonderful hit of citrus mixed with fresh lotus flower and freesia with a base of precious woods.


OUAI Wave Spray --- This isn't a brand I come across often so it's nice to see it here, especially in such a generous size! This weightless texture mist gives those locks volume, shine and an effortless, undone wavy look.


Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer --- I freaking love this more than anything! It's formulated with cocoa powder and smells like actual chocolate. I'm not even joking. It is the best thing ever!


It's such a gorgeous, medium deep matte color and it's perfect on my skin tone. It's a perfect summer bronzer and the size of this sample is really phenomenal!


First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser --- This may be my new favorite facial cleanser. It's this thick, wonderful gel that foams up as you cleanse. Made with botanicals and red clay to remove excess oils, purify, and balance skin. I'm obsessed and will most definitely be purchasing this once my sample is gone! 


BeautyBlender Blotterazzi --- I got super excited about this because, hello, I love my BeautyBlender! This newest sponge miracle will replace those annoying blotting papers. It's washable, reusable, and removes excess oil and shine without jacking up your makeup. It even came with a little bit of blendercleanser!


Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer --- I love Smashbox and this is one of my favorite primers. It's mattifying and goes on well but its biggest plus for me is how nicely it works on my oily skin. Not only does it help set your makeup for up to 8 hours, it also controls shine and minimizes the appearance of my pores.


Do I even have to tell you that this is my favorite Play! box ever? It's just so good! It's so rare for me to love each and every item in a beauty sample box but this one just hit a grand slam. Amazing brands that I love, products I will actually use religiously and incredible sample sizes? Yes please!
