Tocca Beauty Perfume in Florence

My favorite perfume brand is Tocca so I was absolutely thrilled to find this fragrance as the featured scent. The scent is absolutely lovely and is light and is extremely flirty. It has hints of bergamot, violet petals, and blonde wood. If you like this scent you can even find it in body wash, body lotion, hair fragrance, and more!

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

I hate getting mascara because I believe that I already found the holy grail of mascara. But I will admit that I am impressed with this one. Even though it does not volumize the way mine does, it lengthens pretty well and kind of does make them look like you are wearing fake lashes which is pretty cool. I think I will be sticking with my mascara but I might add a swipe or two of this to get that length.

Bumble And Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler

This product is to help you take a break from applying heat to your hair and air drying your hair instead. I usually don’t air dry my hair, but I know that I probably should. The product is a super light weight cream with a gorgeous subtle floral scent. Sephora suggests to braid or twist your hair into a loose bun for 10-20 minutes after applying the cream to help the risk of frizziness.

Bareminerals Bareskin Sheer Sun

I’m such a bare minerals girl! In fact I’m actually using the regular foundation of this serum bronzer. I’m so excited this was in the box because I have been eyeing this product since it came out and have been wanting to try it! What I love about the bare skin foundation is that it comes with primer and brightener already in the formula so its so easy and flawless to use! Sephora recommends using this instead of the foundation in the summer for an easy going look or to even use this on top of foundation to contour.

Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

What a practical item to include, I love it! Plus, right in time for my next vacation this summer! A family friend was recently raving about this to me and telling me that I absolutely had to try it! I’m so excited it was sent in this months box, it was like Sephora was reading her mind! Unlike many sunscreens this one has no scent, which I actually prefer, since I tend to be sensitive to certain scents. This sunscreen is super lightweight and absorbs in seconds. Its definitely the perfect sunscreen to layer with some makeup if you have to. It leaves your skin smooth and dry which is a nice change to all those oily and greasy sunscreens out there!

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

I have not used primer in such a long time since my current foundation already has primer in the formula. This primer only comes in one color, Radiant Glow. Its actually a pump bottle which I was a little surprised by, I was expecting a wand for some reason. One pump is more than sufficient, it goes such a long way. Just like the sunscreen it dries in seconds and its not sticky, its just left feeling smooth. Plus you can absolutely see how the light catches with this primer and just makes your face look glow-y !

I’m really happy with this Sephora Play! box. I go to try a lot of new beauty products and I really enjoyed this experience. It seems like each month is just going to get better and better! I’m very excited for my July box and I can’t wait to see what will be in there! What did you think of this months Play! box?
