Play! by Sephora is a $10/month subscription box program. Every month subscribers receive a bag of deluxe samples as well as a Play Pass to redeem in store for free expert advice and 50 extra Beauty Insider points (with any purchase). The six samples are curated from the prestige brands Sephora carries online/in-store. Typically, there are five deluxe samples and a fragrance sample.
Descriptions below are from the box insert; I haven’t had a chance to try most of these products. Been a busy month!
Too Cool for School Egg Mellow Cream (full size 1.76oz/$36; sample value 0.21oz/$4.30) – This is a 5-in-1 cream made with egg extracts and collagen fiber and works as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask.
Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel (full size 2oz/$55; sample value 0.17oz/$4.68) – This advanced non-abrasive peel gently sloughs away dead skin to reveal a bright, renewed complexion.
Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Parfum (full size price varies; sample value $1) – This is a summery take on Tom Ford’s Black Orchid, with hints of spice and exotic florals. Notes include: turberose petals, cypress, pink peppercorn, black orchid, lily, clove, vanilla, chestnut, vetiver, and patchouli. Not a huuuge fan of this one, but I do find it easier to handle than Black Orchid.
Verb Leave-In Mist (full size 8oz/$14; sample value 1oz/$1.75) – Formulated to moisturize, detangle, and smooth, this conditioning mist also helps to protect hair from heat styling.
Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle (mini trio $24; single mini value $8) – Color-rich and non-drying, this multi-use pencil works as a lipstick, lip liner, and cheek blush. Wears up to six hours. REALLY love this one, but have only used it as a full lip color so far.
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat (full size 0.13oz/$24; sample value estimate 0.04oz/$7.38) – Matte liquid lipstick keeps going for eight hours with a water-resistant, non-feathering formula.
Total Value: ~$27
