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?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
