Well, I’ve done it again. Here we are at the end of November, and I’m showing you October’s box! Not only that, but subscribers of Play! by Sephora will notice that I accidentally left something out of the picture!
First, let me please eat my words.. In September, I lamented the lack of makeup and abundance of skin care in the collection, but this month, I love it! My bone dry skin has been drinking these in and loving the glow.
Fresh’s Black Tea Age Delay Instant Infusion is a mouthful, but it’s also a highly effective treatment/toner hybrid. This is more viscous than a regular toner, but thinner than a serum. You get hydration, anti-aging skincare, pore refinement, and antioxidant protection all in one product that’s super easy to add into your current routine.
Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Day Tint is creamy and lightweight, but I didn’t get much use out of it, as it is too dark for me. I hate finding complexion products like this in a universal package. What about us fair girls? What about deeper skin toned buyers? Not everyone has a light/medium complexion!
Now, we approach the missing product. Pictured is Boscia’s Detoxifying cleanser- great for problematic skin, but a little drying for my skin type. Still, my chin and nose have been a little congested lately, so I did use this black gel a little on my t-zone to help combat blackheads. What’s not pictured is the konjac cleansing sponge that I used with it! The mini size was a little awkward to use, but I do LOVE konjac sponges. They offer more exfoliation than a clarisonic, but aren’t abraisive. This one has active charcoal in it to help draw out impurities.
You can bareeeeeely make it out here, but there’s also a little vial of Atelier Cologne in Mandarine Glaciale. This is the one product I haven’t tried, but I suspect I will love the citrusy notes, as I’m a huge fan of Guerlain’s mandarin fragrance. I did find its inclusion in this collection odd, though. Why all skin care and ONE fragrance, Sephora? Pick a theme!
Belif’s Aqua Bomb moisturizer is something I’ve been interested in trying for quite awhile. The light, super hydrating texture felt like a literal drink of water for my dehydrated skin, but I still found myself reaching for something creamier at night.
Last one! Sephora’s pearl mask.. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. I love sheet masks! They’re cheap, hydrating, brightening, and so convenient. This one is no exception! I loved the glow my skin had after using it, and I look forward to trying some of the other varieties they offer.
That’s all she wrote, guys! This box was a great value and had some really cool skin care finds. I highly recommend Sephora’s subscription if it’s available in your area!
