MAY SEPHORA AT PLAY BOX


HELLO BEAUTY FRIENDS,


Today im showing you what came in the May Sephora at play box




Here is the box when i opened it. First is the little pamphlet that shows you more information about the products included and also the card on  front, well you can take that into the store and when you make a purchase, you just show the person at the register and you get 50 extra beauty insider points. YAH!!! How exciting is that?
So lets talk about the bag this month. Its super cute and its see through with the word play on it. I love this bag.



So lets talk about the products
NUDESTIX MAGNETIC MATTE LIP COLOR IN GREYSTONE
this is a three in one matte lip stain, lip color and lip liner that has a long wearing, intensely pigmented formula in a bold, deep shade. I have not used this yet but its a pretty color.

TRESTIQUE HIGHLIGHT AND PERFECT MULTIPURPOSE STICK
This is a pretty champagne pink shimmer and its so beautiful. I love this so much. 


CHRISTOPHE ROBIN CLEANSING PURIFYING SCRUB WITH SEA SALT
A detoxifying shampoo enriched with sea salt to deeply cleanse and soothe sensitive and/or oily scalps while delivering essential hydration to the scalp.
-Use as a shampoo and apply a small amount onto wet hair.
-Delicately massage into the scalp, add some water, lather, and rinse thoroughly.
I have not used this yet so be watching for my thoughts but it does sound interesting.

SUNDAY RILEY CERAMIN SLIP CLAY CLEANSER
This is suppose to minimize the appearance of pores and brighten for clear, balanced skin. I have heard such great things about this brand so ill let you know about this product.

GRANDE LIPS LIP PLUMPER IN CLEAR
Clear gloss uses a patented  hyaluronic acid infused formula to visible plump lips while also softening over time.
I do like this and however the first time i used it, i felt like they plumped up a little but since then i just don't see it and my lips have actually been a little bit dryer.

MAISON MARGIELA REPLICA BEACH WALK
Notes:
Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk, Cedarwood, Benzoin.
Style:
Pure. Deep. Blissful.

This smells so good and so beachy.
I love it!!

Mishibox is a monthly subscription where you pay just $19.95 a month and they send you a curated box with a combination of 5 - 6 deluxe-sized samples and full-sized Korean beauty products from a wide range of Korean brands. This is also one of several sites where i  purchase my korean skincare that i use.

Here is the box for this month.
 Here is the card that comes in every box and it tells you about the products that are in the box as well as how to use the products that are sent each month. This is the front of the card



                                    and this is the back


Here is what came in this months box

--Skin watchers uv success sunscreen--This is formulated without parabens and mineral oil and provides great coverage without feeling greasy or chalky. I love sunscreen and i am so grateful that this is in the box. Sunscreen is so important. Are you using sunscreen? This retails for $26

--Daycell animal hand cream--These hand creams contain adenosine for wrinkle care and beeswax and macadamia nut oil for moisturizing. With their signature scents, you can also apply a dab to your wrists and neck instead of perfume for aromatherapy. I got the cat and that scent is delicious sweet dew.

MY THOUGHTS:  I have been using a different greens powder in a smoothie for the mornings and i tried this this morning

I mixed it with almond milk and it didn't have the green look or the taste. It tasted like mint chocolate chip.
This is really good and we could all use some extra greens so get this and give it a try.
