June Play! By Sephora Unboxing “The Minimalist”.

Guess what today is?! The second day of Summer, Summer, Summer TIME! 👙🌴☀️🌊🍹🏄🏼

Summer is officially here ladies and gentleman I am SOOOO excited!  This means beach hair, bikini’s, sun, sand, surf, pina coloadas,  and most important sun kissed skin!  What’s a better way to kick off the summer than keeping your beauty al naturale?! Am i right?!  

Sephora had the right idea with this months beauty box subscription theme being “The Minimalist”! So FANCY I must say, and perfect for summer 😍.  Having to take the train everyday to work when its HOT, and the train is usually jammed packed like sardines makes it almost impossible to enjoy my normal beauty routine because my makeup will be running off my face by the time I make it to the West Side Highway & Vesey Street! (Where I work 😊)  Keeping my beauty products down to a minimum for summer while still looking beautiful, and natural sounds like an amazing plan to me!! SO THANKS SEPHORA! You had the right idea for June’s box!

Check out all the goodies that I received in my June Play! Sephora Box.

I cant even begin to say how OBSESSED I am with the outside of this box!

Like my new rug?!  Picked it up at IKEA in Brooklyn this weekend!

LOVING these bags!!! Arent they the cutest?!

TAAA-DAAAA Junes beauty products!!!

If Im not mistaken every single product in this box is SAMPLE SIZE there are no FULL SIZE products!  Maybe with the exception of that BECCA primer? Maybe..

Tocca Florence $68 USD

  • A Parisian beauty and sophisticate, Florence conjures memories of old-world Paris.  It is an alluring combination of Italian bergamot and crushed violet petals. Ivory gardenia combined with blonde wood evokes a sophisticated and feminine scent that conjures the elegance of a Parisian sophisticate.

I have yet to give this perfume a wiff!  The sample size is so small with no spray bottle, and I hate opening little perfume bottles like this!

Have any of you tried or use this perfume?

bareMinerals bareSkin® Sheer Sun™ Serum Bronzer $28 USD

  • With a unique, innovative bronzing formula, bareSkin® Sheer Sun™ Serum Bronzer’s silky, sheer tint of liquid spotlights your skin with a warm glow. The ultra-thin, lightweight formula blends beautifully, adding a sunkissed veil to a universal range of skintones. Contour and define to flatter your best features, or layer it on top of your favorite foundation to give your skin natural-looking, bronzed radiance all year long.

You can see from this sample it gives a tiny bit of bronzeness to your skin.  The perfect summer glow!  It blends well, and can be used with our without mixing it in your foundation.  You can even put this in your moisturizer to give it a slight tint.

tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 $32 USD

  • A portable, non-chemical sunscreen that helps to protect, moisturize, brighten, and re-invigorate skin for a youthful-looking appearance.   Protect skin from harmful rays—even on-the-go—with tarte’s first multi-tasking, antioxidant-infused daily sunscreen. The lightweight, non-sticky liquid lotion contains all-mineral, non-chemical and broad spectrum SPF 30 ingredients that help protect against the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays that can cause dryness, redness, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use, the skinvigorating™ formula is also infused with maracuja, red algae, soybean, apple, and honeysuckle extracts to nourish, tone, and retain moisture while helping to combat signs of aging for a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance. The fresh, ocean’s lily scent allows for luxurious, spa-like daily applications, while the high-performance liquid emulsion seamlessly melts into skin, leaving it supremely soft and silky.

It looks like a sunscreen, smells like a sunscreen, than its most likely a sunscreen!  A steep in price sunscreen for that matter!  I yet to have the pleasure of using this sunscreen, but I eventually will just to try it.  I will most likely NOT be buying this product in the future since you can buy sun screen at your local pharmacy or general store that is HALF the price of this!

Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It $31 USD

  • A first-of-its-kind hair cream that enhances texture and body for the perfect air-dried style.
    Air-dried hair is having a moment. The not-so-great thing about an air style is texture can be unpredictable and flyaways have a mind of their own. This innovative hair cream creates a more refined take on this relaxed style for great hair days—without the heat or hassle. A texture-enhancing blend of lightweight polymers boosts hair’s natural texture and adds bounce while a plant-based conditioning blend keeps hair soft and hydrated.

First off I LOVE BUMBLE & BUMBLE!! I received their hair oil in a few of my subscription bags and I am completely obsessed!! So when I do blow dry my hair I will be using this bad boy to see how it tames this hair of mine, RAWR!

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter $38 USD

  • A makeup primer to help blur imperfections and impart a radiant glow. Backlight Priming Filter creates a canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. Infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, each one adds a different drop of diffused light. Blended together, they impart a one-of-a-kind, lightweight, whipped fluid that creates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter, while the vitamin E-enriched formula minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Backlighting acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look. Infused with Becca’s proprietary blend of crushed pearls, this primer achieves a lit-from-within, healthy-looking effect.

WOOF do you this radiance & illumination on my hand?! How amazing is this primer?!  You can put this right under your tinted moisturizer for a subtle glow, and it would look AMAZING!  I am super excited to use this, and try this out!  I was going to try it this week, but right now Im battling a severe case of sunburn to the face after Fathers Day Weekend ! Should of used that tarteguard LOL!

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara $24 USD

  • A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for an “out-of-here” look—now available in three vibrant shades.  This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had! The specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you’ll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out.

I have this mascara and I LOVE this mascara!  So happy I got another sample!! This is like my third one in 2 months.   This mascara makes my no lashes to WAM BAM lashes!  It is a miracle worker, and I have no idea how this formula does it.  One of the best mascara’s I have EVER used!  Unfortunately right now I have eye lash extensions on so I have no use to mascara, but eventually I will be coming back to this love!

This is it for June’s PLAY! Box I hope you all loved & enjoyed this post, and all the goodies I received this month!  I would love to know what you received in your subscription boxes for June so comment below with your products, links 😘😘

Love Always,
