It’s that time again and my Play! by Sephora for the month of April review is up.
As always, we received five sample sized items and a bonus fragrance too.
Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner
This eye pencil is super intense, very smooth and definitely waterproof! I love how this pencil glides on my eye area and it didn’t irritate my eyes. This is in the shade matte black.
Waterproof Eye Makeup
And because I received a waterproof, budge-proof Aqua XL Eye Pencil from Make Up For Ever, I needed a great waterproof eye makeup remover too! My eyes are very sensitive and this eye makeup remover from the Sephora collection is amazing! It removes any waterproof eye makeup or products that I have on, especially the hard to remove mascaras and it works really well. It feels very light and comfortable on my eyes and even on my skin and it doesn’t feel oily at all.
ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
I have read mixed reviews on this Intensive Exfoliator from Kate Somerville and I’m glad to received a sample product to try it myself. First and foremost, this ExfoliKate smells good, some aren’t a fan of the scent but I personally like it. I feel like I’m in a spa when I have this product on my face. It feels very cooling and soothing on my skin too. I like how gentle this product is but yet leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and very clean. Will I consider to purchase the full-size? Yes, I would!
Papaya, Pineapple, and Pumpkin Enzymes: Naturally exfoliate dead skin cells, without over-drying.
-Lactic Acid: Acts as a natural AHA skin exfoliator.
-Rosewood and Cinnamon Extracts: Combine to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
-Aloe Vera, Honey, and Vitamin E: Smooth and soften skin.
Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream
I’ve heard about this product from several YouTube Beauty Gurus and I’m so happy that I received this in my box. It’s just the perfect time to try this especially with the change in season, sometimes it’s cold and sometimes it’s warm. This Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream is Amazing! It’s a great moisturizer, very lightweight gel like consistency but not greasy or oily when applied. My skin feels very hydrated throughout the day and it didn’t break me out which is a huge plus! Wonderful product indeed.
Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This is probably my fourth sample-sized Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer that I received from my monthly subscription boxes but I couldn’t complain because this primer performs really beautifully! Though my mom doesn’t wear makeup that often but I wanted to hear her thoughts on this primer and she was amazed! She loved how smooth and flawless her face looks after applying her foundation. And I agree, this primer is one of the best primers I’ve tried.
Am I the only person that don’t have the full sized bottle of this Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance? The reason I asked because most women I know has one, seen photos on Instagram and everywhere else too. However, every time I go to the store to check this out, I always find it too florally which I’m not a fan of. Since I received this sample bottle, I was able to test it regularly. During my first try, I really couldn’t handle the super strong floral scent. On my second, it’s still the same. But I noticed that as long as I get through the overwhelming floral scent then the after smell is beautiful. I really wish I can handle the initial “floral scent” because it has one of the nicest sophisticated scent there is. No wonder why so many of you fell in love with this fragrance! But don’t worry, this sample bottle didn’t go to waste, coz my mom is in love with this scent so much! 🙂
And that’s all for now!
So far, this Play! by Sephora box is doing an awesome job with their products.
Let’s wait and see what’s in my next Play! by Sephora box.
