Sephora Play! July ’16 Review

I have been getting the Sephora Play! box for 3 months now, and I have to say I am OBSESSED!! In the beginning there were a lot of people complaining about the waitlist, but I definitely think it was worth it because all of the boxes have been great so far, and the July Play! box is no exception! I love surprises and it’s so much fun knowing this is coming at the beginning of every month!  Now that I’ve had a chance to try everything in my July Sephora Play! box I’m ready to share my thoughts.

Sephora Play July 2016 Review

Included in this months box:


Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer: I already have and love this bronzer, so I was excited to get a small version of it. I have a pretty light hand when it comes to bronzer so this will be a perfect travel size for me and it’ll last quite a long time!! I love how blendable it is, and the color works for me even when I’m at my palest. Plus, it smells like chocolate, which is pretty awesome!

beautyblender blotterazzi: I was excited to see this was coming in my Play! box because it’s something I wanted to try, but knew I would never actually buy. I have oily skin, plus I live in Florida, so my face can be a bit of a mess by the end of the day. Verdict? Pretty disappointing. I’ll keep it in my purse because it does help a teensy bit and might be nice to have on hand, but I wouldn’t spend money on it.

Ouai Wave Spray: I had never heard of this brand, and had it not been for my Play! box I probably never would have come across this brand. I’m so glad it came in my box though because I love it!! Reviews on the smell are mixed, but I really enjoy the smell. I also love how it gives my hair a bit of texture and body, but it feels like I don’t have anything on my hair..no stickiness or anything to speak of! I might have to buy this one once I use up the generous sample size!

Nest Citrine: I thought this was a nice daytime fragrance. It’s a nice floral with just enough citrus to keep it from being old lady-ish. Main downside for me has been that it doesn’t stay on my skin long enough, but I’ll enjoy the sample while it lasts!

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay: Love how much this face wash lathers and how clean it leaves my skin! Perfect for my oily skin!

Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer: I love smashbox primers, but this one just felt too heavy for me.Seems to work well, but I think I’ll have to save it for winter.

All in all, I thought this was a great month, with a chance to try some things I’ve never heard of as well as some more popular ones. I can’t wait to see what’s coming in August!
