Sorry, I didn’t get to June’s box, but I’ve been sick. Still sick, actually but today is a good day so let us talk about Play! by Sephora July 2016! This box is called “Effortless Summer” and is all about relaxed summer beauty. I’m pretty pumped about this box because it has some stuff I’ve been dying to try.
Smashbox Iconic PhotoFinish Foundation Primer Deluxe Sample
Benefit Dew The Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer Deluxe Sample
Blotterrazzi by BeautyBlender Half Size
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser Travel Size
Ouai Wave Spray Travel Size
Nest Citrine Perfume Sample
I’m not a primer gal, but I do like getting primer minis, so the Smashbox Iconic PhotoFinish Foundation Primer deluxe sample is a welcome addition. I’ll be using it when I need to look perfecto. I’m super excited about the Benefit Dew The Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer deluxe sample because I’ve seen a few pale bloggers say it works for them. I don’t mind being pale, but sometimes I’d rather pump a little liquid bronze into my moisturizer to even me out a little and call it a day. Every blogger gave the Blotterrazzi by BeautyBlender raves so I will love having a washable blotting device. I get quite shiny in the summer on my nose when I wear foundation, so this is a blessing. Another product my fave bloggers rave about is First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser so having a nice size of that to use at home or to travel with is awesome. I’ll be testing it tonight! There is so much hype around the Ouai Wave Spray that I’m stoked to have it. I love wave sprays, but often they are drying. This one has no salt! People go nuts for the scent but honestly I’m not sold. Speaking of scents, the Nest Citrine Perfume is currently on my wrist! It goes on STRONG but after 15 minutes settles into a less bombastic version of itself. If you like floral scents but hate jasmine, this is for you.
It may take me a while to review these, but all the products in here are a good value. The combination of mega hype new products and old favorites feels balanced. I will try the Ouai Wave Spray right away and report on that as well as the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. I’m still sick, but you can’t stop me from trying new things. I could be in the hospital on my deathbed, and I’d still be testing stuff!
