Yup here is another one that was from May….
I love this box too. This is why it is worth the look back at it.
I promise it’s worth it. I wouldn’t bother if the box was a complete bunch of shit.
May’s Play! by Sephora box theme was The Rising Stars! My favorite thing about this subscription box Is that is comes with this guide on how to use them. So I thought I would include it in this review.
First things first lets talk about this bag. This was the first time they went with a non draw string bag. They went with this clear pouch made of some tough plastic. I adore this bag since it’s a switch up from what they usually do. I will say that it’s very similar to this month’s Ispy bag since it’s also see through. Maybe it’s was a random thing or not. I think I like this bag more, mainly cause it’s bigger. I’m currently storing all my liquid lipsticks in it.
I have started the past few months trying Hair Products cause I keep getting them but never want to try them. My hair already in great condition, so I have just never really bothered. This Christophe Robin Cleaning Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is amazing. I had honestly never heard of the product before so I was excited to try it. I take little of it and mixed it with my shampoo which the paper say to do. I use John Frida Go Blonder shampoo, this scrub turned into some what of a thick paste. I put it on the top and added some water and worked it in. It lathers up big time even with a little big of it. I washed it out and then used my normal conditioner. My hair is so Soft and I don’t have an dry scalp or any of that. I try to use it about once a week or whenever my scalp is feeling super gross. I still have half a jar of it. I will be investing in some more once I run out.
I love face products. I’ve tried a lot of Clay based ones in recent months. This is Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser. I had never heard of them before that I can think of. I used it for the 2 weeks I was out of town. I will leave it on while I shampooed my hair since it says if you want to you can. It goes on smooth and washes off the same way. My face was soft and actually felt clean. I have encounter some face wash that just leave me feeling gross. This one is pretty perfect and I will probably be investing in it. Once I get through all the random sample I have collected over the past little bit that is.
I also adore a good highlight. I keep getting treStique products in both subscription boxes I get. I have come to love the brand so far. This highlighter goes on smooth and is easy to blend. It does kind of get lost in my skin tone when I use it. Which sadly some highlighters will do. I would recommend this one for one you can keep in your bag cause it’s small and if you need a glow touch up it’s there.
This is a Nude Stix Matte Lipstick. I don’t think I had come across anything by the company yet, so I was excited. It’s a super dark color especially on my pale skin. Honestly I was a little worried about the color when I first opened it cause it’s this weird brown. It’s actually quite lovely on and I’m really feeling it. I love lip products to the point I’m obsessed. This Lip liner lipsticks are perfect though. Cause you can outline then fill it right in perfect. This also lasts a pretty long time. This one I can put on and it’s still there hours later.
Again I’m obsessed with lip products. I had never actually heard of Grande Lips before (There was a theme with this box) this is there Hydrating Lip Plumper. This is the second lip plumper I’ve tried the first being Too Faced’s Lip Injection. I prefer this one way more. Too Faced literally burns when you put it on. This one doesn’t and it’s perfect. There is a slight tingle, but not in a bad way. The effect is strudel and the instruction say to use it twice a day for 30 days. I have notice a little bit of a different. However I would only do it once a day and then forget the other one. I will have to do a proper trial of it. Regardless I really love the product. I use it as a prep for my lips while i’m doing my makeup. I let it dry then put my lipstick on over it.
As always Sephora includes a Fragrance. They rarely ever disappoint, I think in total I have gotten one I didn’t like. I love getting sample like this cause I can keep them in my purse as a just in case you know for girl reasons. This is Replica by Maison Margiela, yet another company I had not heard of. This scent is lovely. It’s just the right amount of it so it’s not overbearing where it is an problem and you feel like you need a shower. I’m really happy with this one.
I’m extremely happy with May’s box. It had a lot of brand I hadn’t ever come across and I’m always excited when I can discover something new. I love all these products and I will be looking into more of these brands products. I’m happy with one I always want to try them all. Sephora really nailed it with this box.
