Unboxing....Play! by Sephora June 2016 #TheMinimalists #Sephora

Last month I finally got off of the wait-list for the Play! by Sephora subscription box & my mail carrier delivered the June box last week. 

The theme for this box is The Minimalists: "Effortless is more. Next-level nudes and no-maintenance naturals; this month, we're paring it down for understated style that proves sometimes less really is more. Get a low-key look for summer with a game-changing hair cream, refreshingly lightweight sunscreen and more must-haves for creating an easygoing appeal."

Attached to the front of the informational pamphlet is a Play! Pass that is good for 50 extra Beauty Insider points with an in-store purchase.

All of the products are packaged inside of this cute drawstring bag.

And these are the products that came in the bag:

Unboxing....Ipsy Glam Bag June 2016 #juneglambag #ipsy

The theme for the Ipsy June Glam Bag is Rebel Rebel: "Misfits. Rulebreakers. Badass babes. The riot starts this June. We're hitting the streets with serious sizzle and signature looks. Coloring outside of the lines is encouraged. Sitting on the side of the lines is not."

These are the products that I received in my June Glam Bag:

ColourPop Cosmetics Creme Gel Liner in Swerve (a rich onyx black)

Peter Lamas Youth Revival 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge (reddish-brown topped with teal-green shimmer)

Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Pout Potion in Secret (soft nude pink shade)

My favorite thing this month is the graffiti-look makeup bag! I also love the eyeshadow & lip color because those are two of my favorite beauty items. I probably won't use the gel liner because it's not something that I usually wear. I can't wait to try the cleansing cream but I'm a bit leery of the hair treatment mask because they mostly just weigh my hair down. 

Ipsy is a monthly subscription box which comes with full-size or deluxe-sized products plus a makeup bag. The cost is $10 each month with free shipping to the US & Canada. It is delivered via USPS. I think it's well worth the money that I spend & a great way to try new products & add to your makeup collection. Ipsy sends out multiple variations of each Glam Bag so my review is the products that I received. Yours could be different & I love seeing what everyone else gets in their bag.

So. That's my Glam Bag. What did you get in yours?

Unboxing....Target Beauty Box June 2016 #SunKissed #LookingGood #TargetBeauty #TargetStyle

For June, Target offered a Beauty Box for women & one for men. I got them both because it's only fair to get one for hubby since I get one for myself every time they are offered.

The products in the Women's Beauty Box came wrapped in orange tissue paper & the theme of the box is "sunKISSED". An information card is included that tells all about the products plus a coupon for $3 off of any beauty purchase of $15 or more at Target or These are the products that came in this box:

Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo + coupon for $2 off (3.9 fl.oz. sample $2.03)
SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Creme Rinse (3.2 fl.oz. sample $2.79)
Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Apricot Glow ($4)
Laneige Water Bank Serum (10ml sample $5.83)
S.W. Basics Exfoliant (2 uses sample)
L'Oreal Paris True Match Cushion in Nude Beige + coupon for $2 off
L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Cream (0.5 oz. sample $5.94)

e.l.f. Lip Kiss Balm in Bare Kiss (Full Size $2)
(prices from

The products in the Men's Box came wrapped in blue tissue paper & the theme of the box is "lookingGOOD". An information card is included that tells all about the products plus a coupon for $3 off of any personal care purchase of $15 or more at Target or These are the products that came in this box:

Nautica Life Cologne (0.04 oz. sample $0.82)
got2B Glued Spiking Glue (1.25 oz. sample $0.87)
Marlowe No. 142 Men's Shave Gel (1 fl.oz. $1.33)
Axe White Label Night Body Wash (1.69 fl.oz. sample $0.42)
Old Spice Hardest Working Deodorant in Pure Sport Plus (0.5 oz. sample $1.06)
Dove Men + Care Complete Care 2-in-1 Shampoo (1.8 fl.oz. sample $0.42)
NIVEA Men Creme (1 oz. sample $0.78)
Schick Hydro Men's Razor + $2 off 5-blade refill coupon ($9.49)
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar (1 oz. sample $1.10)
Remington Beard Boss Beard Oil (2.7ml sample)
(some boxes came with Balla Body Power instead of the beard oil)
(prices from

The women's products have a value of about $?31 and I paid $10 with free shipping and the men's products have a value of about $16 and I paid $5 with free shipping. I think both of these boxes are a good value. 

Target Beauty Boxes are not a subscription box that you can sign up for so you have to be ready when they are offered because they are first come, first serve & they sell out pretty quickly. 

I try to get these boxes each time they are offered because they usually contain products that I already use or have wanted to try so I'll be watching & waiting for the next Target Beauty Box & I'll give you a heads up!
