Play! by Sephora - August 2019 Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

What is Play by Sephora?: Play! by Sephora is Sephora's own monthly subscription box! Each month will include five deluxe samples plus a fragrance sample (or sometimes a hair sample), all coming from the same brands that Sephora carries! Each box also includes a Play Book (tips and tricks) and a Play Pass (a one-on-one tutorial at Sephora and a bonus 50 points with purchase).

How Much is Play by Sephora?: Play by Sephora is $10/month plus your state's sales tax (if a Sephora is in your store). It ships for free but only to the contiguous 48 states.

I literally started opening Sephora bags with one eye open, just because I never knew what was going to be in it.


Info sheet.


Bare Minerals Dew Mist Setting Spray ($2.72) - I wasn't a huge fan of this sprayer. I'm sure the product is fine but it spurted out globs of setting spray rather than a fine mist, not my thing. I have no clue if the full-size does this.

Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum ($14.45) - I used this once every two weeks because of how sensitive my skin is. I use a regular retinoid once a week but because this said high-dose, I was honestly scared of it. I like it, though!

Briogeo Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Creme ($4.50) - Okay, so hear me out. This is amazing for your ends. It's a little too thick to put all over your hair but as an added layer of protection for the most damaged parts of your hair, it's perfect. Will be repurchasing at some point.


Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator ($12.00) - While this works as a moisturizer, it's not my favorite. It works for daytime moisture but it's not enough for me for the evenings. Still, I was fine receiving it.

GlamGlow Supertoner Exfoliating Acid Solution Toner ($1.47) - This is a fine exfoliating toner, but it's not my favorite (the Pixi one is). It did the trick and I did use it up.

NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil (Dance Fever) ($18.84) - This would go really well with that Steve Laurant liner from Boxycharm not too long ago. It's still not a shade that I would wear so after swatching, I passed it along.


Swatch of NARS.


This bag was valued at $53.98. While it wasn't my favorite Play bag, it was better than a lot of others have been.
