Keep reading for details on each item!
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – 10ml size, $3.57 value
I am loving this Laneige sleeping mask! After just one use I could tell a difference in skin softness and texture! The gel formula is light and refreshing with a subtle fresh scent and leaves skin deeply hydrated!
Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum – 5ml size, $14.16 value
I’ve tried Sunday Riley CEO many times thanks to subscription boxes and I’m a fan! This serum is enriched with a mega dose of vitamin C to brighten and revitalize skin. It’s so good, you’ll see results after just a few uses.
BeautyBlender Solid Pro – 0.558 oz. size, $4.74 value
I love my BeautyBlender sponge so I was eager to give this BeautyBlender cleanser a try! It’s infused with charcoal to deep clean makeup sponges and brushes and is easy to use and effective! Simply wet your sponge or brush with water then squeeze the sponge or stroke the brush onto the soap then lather and rinse.
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace – Full Size, $24 value
I’m always happy to receive a full size beauty product in a subscription box so I was thrilled to get a full size Bite Beauty lip crayon! The color “Glace” is basically the same color as my natural lip color so it’s natural looking which I love! The formula applies like butter and has a matte finish but doesn’t feel dry on your lips like some matte lipsticks. Plus- the handy pencil applicator is self-sharpening and perfectly portable! This is my new fave lip product!
Four Sigmatic Golden Latte Mushroom Mix with Shiitake & Turmeric – 3 Packets, $4.80 value
Honestly, I felt this latte mix was a super strange addition to my Play box and was disappointed that it wasn’t an actual beauty product. 🙁
Regardless, this is a powder supplement that you mix with hot water and drink. It’s lightly sweet, dairy free, and contains a blend of natural ingredients (mushrooms, turmeric, ginger, black pepper) which are purportedly help support full body well-being.
Bite Beauty Agave Sugar Lip Balm & Scrub – Bonus Item!
The bonus item this month is this lip balm and lip scrub duo by Bite Beauty! The balm is ultra rich and highly moisturizing and the natural sugar scrub smells amazing and leaves lips super soft!
While I was very disappointed to get the latte mix in place of an actual beauty product, I did enjoy the other products (I LOVE the full size Bite Beauty matte lip crayon!!) in my January 2019 Play by Sephora box and was happy with the Bite Beauty bonus too! So…hit and miss, but way more good than bad. Hopefully Sephora doesn’t start a trend of sending beauty supplements in place of products. Value-wise, my box is totally worth the $10 cost as it’s worth $51.27.
Is this box still available?
January Play boxes are no longer available so if you sign up for Play by Sephora now through the end of the month, you will receive a February 2019 Play by Sephora Box. Check out Play by Sephora February 2019 Spoilers here!
