The holiday season is officially here, so when my December Play! by Sephora box arrived this week it felt like an extra gift—even though, like periods and full moons, it happens every month. As I expected, the December box was holiday themed, with a cute Art Deco design on the brochure:
I went to NYC last Saturday through this Tuesday, and when I got back to DC my November Play! by Sephora box was waiting for me. What a fun welcome home! This month’s theme is “Survival of the Chillest,” so Sephora sent a collection of samples intended to help you treat yourself and practice self-care before the full force of holiday season hits. The “It’s Me O’Clock” sack containing this month’s samples was so cute that I had to photograph it with a couple of my crystals, which felt appropriate for November’s theme:
I was curious what October’s Play! by Sephora theme would be because they already did a fall theme last month. This month’s box arrived right around the time I received an email telling me it had shipped; either their notification system is delayed or Sephora has secretly figured out teleportation! This month’s theme is Complexion Companions: products meant to “set you up for a flawless look.” Sounds good to me!
September has been a bit of a whirlwind, so I practically forgot about my Play! by Sephora box until it arrived last week! The day after I received it I went to visit family in St. Louis for a few days, so I didn’t get a chance to publish my post until now. This month’s box has a “Fall Into Beauty” theme to coincide with the changing of the seasons. Surprisingly, there were no products containing pumpkin. 😛
I can’t believe it’s already more than halfway through August! My Play! by Sephora box arrived this week, with an “Elements of Beauty” periodic table design on the front and back of the brochure. Each box in the table lists an ingredient found in certain beauty products and explains what it’s good for (e.g., “guarana seed extract is best for deep hydration”). Cute…and helpful!
My July Sephora Play! box arrived late in the afternoon the day before I left for Comic-Con, so I was too busy packing to start playing around with my samples. I did take a couple of them with me to San Diego, though, and now that I’m back home I’ve finally had a chance to use each sample a few times so that I could sneak in my blog post before August!
My June 2017 Play! by Sephora box arrived last week but I’ve had trouble getting myself to sit down and write about it. It’s not that it was a bad batch of samples; I simply wasn’t overly excited about them, so it’s been harder to motivate myself to write this post. But here I am, making it happen on the final day of June!
My May Play! by Sephora box showed up last week before I went on a mini-vacation, and I spent some time this week trying out my samples before sitting down to write about them. May’s theme is The Rising Stars: stellar “cult favorites, hard-to-find-formulas, and one-of-a-kind brands that are making their mark.”
