Right now, there are two beauty products that are always welcome in my subscription boxes: nail polish and skincare (especially eye products). So you can imagine how excited I was to see that the theme for the August 2016 Play! By Sephora box was The Eye Openers and that it included two skincare products, one of the specifically for eyes, along with three other eye-based color cosmetics.
Play! By Sephora is a $10 a month makeup and beauty subscription service curated by Sephora. This box includes five deluxe to full size products (mostly deluxe) and a perfume sample; all the products featured are available from Sephora and are generally about the size of the 100-point Beauty Insider reward samples. There used to be a waitlist to get this subscription, but it sounds like they finally opened it for everyone. Yay!
Overall, I got five deluxe sized sample products and a fragrance freebie with a total value of $42.49 (though almost $20 of that is just the Caudalie balm). While the value isn't as high as some Ipsy bags (a comparable monthly subscription service), I think the overall quality of the items are more consistent (I'm going to get use out of all the products, sans fragrance) and I know that if I want to, I can purchase all of them from one retailer, Sephora. I think this is a very solid subscription service for just $10 a month, and I recommend checking it out, especially since it's currently open to everyone!
