Play! by Sephora is a monthly beauty subscription box. Each box comes with five deluxe samples and a fragrance bonus, a Play! Book that has tips, tricks, and how-tos so you can get the most out of your products and a Play! Pass that you can use in store for a free one-on-one tutorial and subscriber meetups. The cost of the box is $10.00 per month.

I believe that there is a waitlist right now to sign up.

This month everything came inside this cute little pouch. 

Ok so lets see what was sent out this month. 

ATELIER COLOGNE in Orange Sanguine - So this is the fragrance bonus. This has a refreshing burst of sweet blood orange and bitter orange peel also paired with notes of geranium. I'm not huge into perfume but I have to say this smelled really nice. 

BITE BEAUTY Amuse Bouche in Kimchi - this lipstick is high-pigmented also has 12 edible oils. On the information card it says that Bite Beauty creates all its lipsticks using food-grade ingredients that are antioxidant-rich and they are all made in small batches. This is a really bright pink color that I will not be using so I'll pass this on to somebody else. 

TARTE Tarteist Lip Crayon in Latergram - this lip crayon has vitamin E and antioxidants. This is a nice nude type of color I would say. 

ORIGINS Maskimizer + Drink Up & Clear Improvement Masks. This came with 3 samples. It comes with an innovative priming mist that optimizes skin's condition, a charcoal mask that cleanses and also an overnight mask that deeply moisturizes. 

KORRES Wild Rose Sleeping Facial. This overnight facial is supposed to melt into your skin to brighten and moisturize it. This has wild rose oil which is rich in vitamin C for helping to even skin tone and visibly improve fine lines.

BRIOGEO Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This hair treatment is made with naturally derived ingredients to restore and replenish. This has argan oil which is a potent multitasking oil that repairs, softens, and reduces frizz. It also has avocado oil which deep conditions and enhances shine without weighing down hair. I should have used this today to see how it would work since my hair was so frizzy from the heat.

Overall this is great box for only $10.00 a month. I am able to try out different products to see what works for me and what doesn't.

Serendipity by LLB May 2016

Serendipity by LLB is a bi-monthly box that is $9.99. Serendipity will send you items that do not necessarily follow a specific theme, just great little finds that they want to share with you. The collection may even seem a little quirky at times, but that's the nature of true serendipity. That's what it shows on the front of the information card.

Now lets see what came inside this months box.

Alfresco Stemless Wine Glasses ~ Retail $7.99. They included these stemless wine glasses because they knew they would be perfect to pop them in a bag and take them with you anywhere.

Pack-n-Go Insulated Tote ~ Retail $6.99. I received the lime green color but some people did receive a red color instead. This bag is fully insulated and will hold your cold or hot items. It's great for taking with you to the park or the beach or if you are going on a road trip somewhere. We used this bag today to go strawberry picking and it was great for my daughters snacks and I like that it has a pocket on each side to hold drinks.

Laguna Salt Company - Tuscan Rosemary ~ Retail $6.95. This comes from a women entrepreneur company that is based in Southern California. The information card also suggests to use it on fish, chicken and beef or with olive oil as a dipping sauce for fresh bread.

Modish Polish ~ Retail $12.00. This polish was created by two sisters in sunny Los Angeles on a mission to create a healthy, colorful vegan product.
The polish is "5~free" vegan friendly, and gluten free. "5~free" means Modish nail polishes do not include formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin or camphor - harsh chemicals known to be harmful to the water. This is a great classic color. The color is called pop that champagne. Some people also received a red color, I'm happy with the color that I did receive since I think I would use this color more often. Just one thing my bottle spilled a little so when I opened the box all I smelled with nail polish 😬.

Annie B's Popcorn ~ Retail $2.00. Annie B's was created in 1978 by Tom & Carol Bouquet and they named it after their daughter Annie. I received the sea salt caramel which was delicious by the way but some people received the sharp cheddar kind. I was hoping I would have gotten the sharp cheddar kind instead. The popcorn is made with non-gmo popcorn and is gluten free.

Right now the subscription is on waitlist. But if you do get a chance to sign up I would highly recommend doing so. This was such a great box for being only $9.99 bi-monthly. Everything will be used in the box so that's great.
