My First Subscription Box From Sephora! And It's Only $10!


How adorable is this? Months ago I signed up for Play! by Sephora, but had to be put on a waitlist because so many people had already enrolled. One day I finally got an email saying that I was eligible to receive my 1st box! And it’s only $10 a month! How exciting! And I’m sharing with YOU guys, the contents of my box! Here I list the products, my feedback as I test them, & links to the full size item at!

Atelier Cologne’s Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume, $25 for 1oz
This came in an envelope; with a postcard & the sample of perfume inside. I’m not sure why such a small sample needed a big postcard. Also the name is misleading as well: it’s a cologne but also has perfume in the same name? So which one is it? Is it a perfume or a cologne? I took a whiff & for me it wasn’t pleasant. It smells like burnt orange peels with a slight hint of flowers added in there. Sorry, not for me. My Verdict: I’ll pass

Korres Wild Rose & Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial, $19 for 1.35oz
This is supposed to be a brightening facial mask, but this sample is too small for me to give any long term feedback. It is a sleeping mask, & I put it on 1 night instead of my night cream. It is moisturizing, & thank god not oily! I woke up with my skin feeling soft; but at first glance it feels like any other night cream. My Grade: B+

Origin’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask $17 for 1.7 oz, and Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask $17 for 1.7 oz
This is interesting.. 2 masks from Origins.. After reading the instructions on the back, it comes with a maskimizer which is like a toner that you spray on before putting on one of their masks. (I’m guessing this is just to prep the skin)

For Origin’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, you only need to leave it on for 10 & then rinse off. After a few minutes, it started to harden (after all, it is a clay mask). After rinsing, my skin was smoother. My Verdict: B-

When I tried Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, it was a bit sticky, however I woke up with my face softer & smoother! And I love the fact that it’s not oily! Great deal! My Verdict: A
