April Sephora PLAY! Box Review

This box I have really put to use over the last month.  I feel like all the products were perfect for prepping my skin for the upcoming summer months.  So what came in this box?



Sephora Collection-Triple Acting Cleansing Water

I have not yet jumped on the cleansing water band wagon.  I felt like it was a waste of time and money.  However getting it as a sample I said lets do this worst case you use and don’t like.  I was pleasantly surprised by how great this stuff really is.  To use I wash my face like normal before getting ready for bed and then apply.  It pulled all the extra dirt and makeup off my face and left my skin feeling soft and fresh.  I feel like even my pores are smaller now.  Best part of this product is that you do not have to wash it off, it doesn’t sting and there’s no smell.  I give this product a 10/10.


Urban Decay- Perversion Mascara in Shade Black

If you have read my previous review you would know I am not a huge fan of mascara in general, but I do enjoy always having a fresh tube.  9/10 I am wearing false lashes anyway and my real lashes are less than fabulous.  It does have a good formula it goes on smooth and comes off with ease.  I give this product 5/10.


Laura Mercier- Foundation Primer in shade Radiance

Hands down my favorite product in this box.  I actually purchased the full size of this because I loved it so much.  The shade of this product is a pearlescent light color but goes on clear.  This primer makes your skin SO dewy and pretty!  It also does a great job of creating a smooth canvas for makeup application.  Not only does it look good under makeup but you can wear it alone and give yourself a fresh dewy look for your more low key days. I give this product 10/10.


Clinique- Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Honestly I would say there isn’t anything that wowed me on this one.  It’s a pretty standard moisturizer.  I feel like its meant for someone that has really dry skin, mine is definitely more a combination skin type. I give this a 7/10.


Farmacy- Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum with Enchinacea Green Envy

I actually saw this product online at Sephora and it interested me but I felt it was a little pricey to buy outright.  I was pumped this showed up in my box this month!  Overall it doesn’t have a smell really or at least to me it’s very mild.  I will say it has brightened up my skin and I feel like overall it just looks better.  The only negative thing I would say about this product is that it does have an intense tingle the first time you use it.  I did not fully read everything on this product I just slapped it on and I was in a shock.  After using it for awhile I’d say its a lot better and I barely feel the tingle.  I would give this product an 8/10.


Verb- Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner

I brought these on vacation with me.  Anytime I get samples of shampoo/conditioner I save them for trips.  The samples are easy to pack and I have yet to experience that lovely moment when TSA doesn’t put something back where it’s supposed to be, or my bag has a rough flight and things explode.  The two smelled fresh and left my hair feeling clean, but I didn’t feel like it did anything special.  I’d give this product 7/10.



I thought April’s box was a perfect way to prep my skin for Summer.  After using this month’s products I feel my skin is bright and has a nice glow to it.  To sign up for this box click here.  Its only $10/month why not treat yourself? XO Nicole
