Play! by Sephora: January


This month’s box was Beauty, Set, Go.  A few products to get the year started off right.


First is the Tarte FRXXXTION Stick, which is a gel in a stick.  It transforms from a solid gel to a cleansing lather when applied to a damp face.  To use simply apply in a circular motion and then continue massaging into skin with fingers to cleanse.  The pamphlet also says  you can use this product as a 10-minute mask to purify and revitalize your skin.  I am excited to give this a try.  I think it would be great for traveling.


The Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask is amazing!  I used this product the night I received my box in the mail.  I have heard and read that honey is great to use since it is a natural antioxidant, but I have never given it a try.  I have used this mask several times and love the way it makes my skin feel.  It hydrates my skin giving me a healthy glow.  I love it!  It contains a ingredient called Echinacea GreenEnry.  According to the pamphlet, this is a patent protected plant that is used to promote balanced, healthy-looking skin by soothing inflammation and adding radiance.  It also is something you won’t find in any other products.  Actually, the Farmacy headquarters exclusively grows their own Echinacea GreenEvy.


I have been so interested in QUAI hair products, but have not gotten to try any yet.  One of my favorite YouTubers, Estee Lalonde, raves about their products a lot in her videos.  I would love to try their texturizing spray.  This month I received the OUAI Treatment Masque.  This is a mask to help damaged hair.  It is formulated to not only help damaged hair, but to strengthen hair to help against future damage.  I am looking forward to trying this product.  I am lucky to have healthy hair, but I am hard on it.  Between dying it and using heat on it practically everyday, I need something to help keep it healthy.


I had never heard of the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.  Although the pamphlet says it is a cult-classic, this was the first I had ever seen or heard of it.  Looking at the product you would think it would be super dark, however, it glides on as a sheer color on the lips.  For me I feel like it really enhances the color of my own lips just giving them a tad bit of color and a glossy finish.  This is a great everyday almost lipstick and an ideal product to keep in your purse at all times.


I am rather picky when it comes to perfume, so I feel like I am really hitting it lucky with these perfumes samples lately.  The Tory Burch Love Relentlessly is a wonderful scent.  Most of the time I tend to stay away from floral scents because they are usually too strong for me.  However, this one is perfect.  It is very delicate and not overpowering at all.


I don’t believe I have ever received a foundation sample in my boxes yet.  This month I got the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+.  I have not tried a cushion foundation and look forward to this one.  Advertised as a weightless foundation this sounds like my kind of product.


This month’s bag makes me think of the beach with the mesh back.  It would be perfect to carry small item in your gym bag.
