Sephora Play! July 2016 Review and Giveaway!

I was thrilled in May when I finally got off the waitlist for the Play! by Sephora beauty sampling subscription. It's only $10 a  month and so far I've been impressed with what I've received. This month will be my third month and I'm super happy to be able to giveaway one July 2016 box! Read on to see what you will get and make sure to enter for your chance to win!

Each box comes with a cotton drawstring bag and a fold out pamphlet explaining what you've received and how to use it. There's also a card for 50 points that can be redeemed with purchase in person at a Sephora store.

The Cost: $10/month

What You Get: A collection of five deluxe samples plus a fragrance in a cute bag, delivered monthly.

Benefit Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer- This bronzer is made for all skintones and has a sheer, smoothing effect with lightweight, buildable texture can be applied on bare skin or over foundation for a shimmerless, sunkissed glow. I don't like shimmer so I'm definitely going to be trying this. I was camping this weekend and got quite a bit of sun. I noticed my foundation is a shade off now.
Ouai Wave Spray- Infused with rice protein to add hold and memory for that perfect beachy look, this feather-light spray gives hair natural wave and body without any dryness or crunch. I received this in a Box of Style and I think it was even the same size. Since Box of Style is ten times more expensive, it's pretty great to see this in the Play box. This is a very light spray. So light that I felt it didn't even work or do anything at all. I have really fine hair, too. Maybe you have to use a TON of it to notice anything?
Nest Fragrance in Citrine- The dewy softness of lotus flower and freesia are set against sparkling citrus notes and hints of precious woods.  Notes of Lemon Blossom, Lotus Flower, Freesia, Dew Drop Accord and Precious Woods. I'm not really a fan of perfume in subscription boxes but it goes with the territory. This one is actually perfectly summery. I like the citrus and freesia. Mmmm!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer- A silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants smooths and perfects skin, fills in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish. I don't particularly like this primer, mainly because I have something I think works better for my skin. I know a lot of people love it, though.
First Aid Beauty Cleanser- A fragrance-free, gentle cleanser that effectively removes makeup, dirt, and grime, leaving skin soft and supple.

VERDICT: I think this is a great box with a fun selection of items. The best thing is that most of these haven't been in any of the other boxes I get!

If you would like to sign up for Play! by Sephora, you can do that here. Do keep in mind they're currently on a waitlist so put your email address in there and wait for the happy day to arrive. You can always change your mind once you get the email, if you want to.
Now is your chance to get one of these boxes for yourself, whether you're on or off the waitlist! I have one extra box to give away! I'm going to be doing this each month for awhile so make sure you're following one of my social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) so you'll know when it's happening.
