My June Sephora Play! Box Unboxing

Hello again! Another Wednesday, another post. If you missed Monday’s post, you can read it here. I discussed and went over my nighttime skincare routine.

To be honest, I wasn’t very excited by this month’s box so this will be a pretty quick post. Also, it will be the last unboxing for a while as I will be traveling to Colombia next Wednesday until the first week of September and unfortunately I can’t get Birchbox or Sephora Play! there.

This month’s theme is Your Summer Starters. I didn’t really think anything in the box was very “summer,” I saw other people’s posts on what they got and some people got a lot more summer-related products like Tarte’s Tarteguard 20 Tinted Moisturizer. I would’ve LOVED to get this. Instead, these are the products I received in my June Sephora Play! Box.

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

Really? Again? I have received so many samples of this product and I really don’t understand why. This primer really doesn’t work for me. I hate the siliconey feeling and every time I’ve tried it, I just feel like my skin feels dirty afterward. Hate it.

COOLA Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30

I am actually somewhat excited about this. The packaging had a very funky smell and I was worried this was going to be the scent of the product, but no worries, the setting spray has no funky smell. Not sure where the funky smell came from. I was surprised to see a setting spray with SPF, I’m not sure how efficient it would be, but I think we all need all the extra help in protecting from the sun. I would not rely solely on this product for SPF protection.

Verb Sea Spray

You know, Sea Spray is one of those things that I really wish worked for me. I love the idea of it, the beachy waves, the texture, but whenever I try it, it just doesn’t work. I usually apply it on dry hair and try to scrunch it up and work it, but I end up hating the feeling and brushing it away. Does anyone have any tips on the “proper” way to use Sea Spray?

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

I previously received a sample of this in a Birchbox. It is a great dry shampoo that absorbs excess oil and adds volume for soft, refreshed hair. I love using this! It is not my go-to dry shampoo, I have a couple of others that I reach out for more than this one, but can you really have too many travel-sized dry shampoos? Can you? I don’t think so.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick

This is probably the most exciting product for me this month. Even though I love the shade, I wouldn’t exactly call this a summer shade. I hadn’t tried ANY of the Kat Von D lipsticks (… or products), but I have to say I love the formula of this liquid lipstick. I am not sure if it’s supposed to be matte, I don’t think so, it is more of a satin formula which means it’s not SUPER drying but it also means there might be some transfer. I think I now need to try the Lolita shade everyone is always raving about. Have any of you tried it?

And last and least, this month’s perfume sample – BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline. Don’t get me wrong, I love that there’s a perfume sample every month, I have so many perfume samples that I reach out to all the time, but I just don’t have much to say.

I hope you enjoyed this unboxing. I have been thinking of maybe getting started on some Instagram stories and post the unboxing there as well. Have any of you tried this? Do you enjoy it?

What is your favorite summer product?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼
Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!
@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.
What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?
Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
