Play! by Sephora April 2017 Review – Step It Up

The April 2017 Play! by Sephora box is dedicated to revamping your daily beauty routine by introducing top products into your life. This box is all about focusing on yourself and making sure that you get the most out of your products. I would imagine that we are going to get products that cover a range of issues, such as moisturization and cleansing. There's only one thing left to do- open the box.

Play! by Sephora April 2017 products

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

The first product in this month's Play! by Sephora box is an exfoliator. It claims to gently polish the skin, leaving a glowing complexion. This product is to be used one to two times per week. Apply it to wet skin and massage it in for 30 seconds. It can be left on for two minutes for a deeper clean before rinsing. The product is a green gel, and has a natural, plant like scent. I enjoy trying out new skincare products, so I will quickly break into this one.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

This product is a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates the skin. It is to be used twice daily. The directions state to pat it all over the face and neck. It is a translucent white cream with no distinguishable scent. It sounds like a basic moisturizer to me, just with hyaluronic acid.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil

This eyeliner pencil claims to be waterproof and budge-proof all day. It also says that it is a makeup artist favorite. I have to say, it swatched smoothly and is very black. However, the tip broke while I was swatching it.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

In a previous box we got Smashbox's poreless primer, and I really like it. It honestly works like magic, so I have high hopes for this primer. This one claims to blur imperfections and create a smooth surface for makeup application, which reduces the amount of touchups needed throughout the day. It is also used on the runway. To apply, squeeze a pea-sized amount onto your fingers and apply all over the face. This primer is a clear gel, which is unlike any primer I have seen before. It has no scent.

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

I deal with stubborn eye makeup just like the rest of us, so I am intrigued by this product. It claims to easily remove waterproof makeup, while strengthening lashes. It is supposed to be fine for sensitive eyes. I hope so, because I find many makeup removers irritate my eyes. It has to be shaken before each use because the liquid separates. You can use it with whatever tool you like, such as a cotton pad. It has the consistency of water and has no scent.

Marc Jacobs Daisy

As usual, we conclude the Play! by Sephora box with a perfume sample. I have actually heard of this perfume before, which makes me excited. It is primarily a floral perfume that also includes violet leaves, wild strawberries, and jasmine. It smells girly and playful.

I would say that these products can easily fit into someone's daily routine, making this box live up to it's theme. I appreciate that it leans a little bit more to the makeup side of things. I also like that these are products that I can immediately work to use up. Do you like this month's Play! by Sephora box? Do you use any of these products? Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
