Stella May I know about you June 2016 Play by Sephora Box?

2:30 PM Stella May 0 Comments

Of course you may! Today's Fiddle-Faddle Friday post is what is inside June's monthly box. When I knew it was scheduled to arrive today, I knew it was going to be today's post. I want to get it up as soon as possible!
 First thing is the Play! Pass for 50 extra Beauty Insider points and their advice. I still have my May pass so I can't really say much about the advice/one-on-one tutorial. The pass expires at end of the following month so I plan on using the two I have at the same time.
This month also includes the poster sized description and tips for all the products.
And the same drawstring bag as last month to house all 5 samples + 1 fragrance bonus.
What's included: 
Bumble and Bumble Don't Blow It 0.5 fl oz  worth $3.10 (full size $31, 5 oz)
BareMinerals bareSkin Bronzer 0.1 fl oz worth $2.80 (full size $28, 1 oz)
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara 0.1 oz worth $8.00 (full size $24, 0.3 oz)
Becca Backlight Priming Filter 0.2 fl oz worth $7.60 (full size $38, 1 oz)
Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 0.23 fl oz worth $4.33 (full size $32, 1.7 oz)
Tocca Beauty Florence small vial (full size $68)
Total value: $25.83 without fragrance sample.
I've never tried a Bumble and bumble. product before, so I am looking forward to trying this. It seems perfect for summer's no heat styling.
Considering this is worth the most in this month's box it should be without a doubt the nicest sized sample. I have used this product before and while it does lengthen and volumize the lashes, it is a pain to take off. It doesn't claim to be waterproof but it removes like one.
I feel like Tocca is one of the friendlier prized perfumes at Sephora. This one, Florence, gave me a lot of floral, gardenia vibes. Notes are: bergamont, violet petals, and blonde woods. I think it's more of a spring than summer scent.
This BareMinerals bronzer is a new type of product to me. It's supposed to be a lightweight liquid bronzer. I only tried it on my arm and it was a little patchy and orange. The packaging is nice. You do have to shake it before you dispense it. The poster suggests using fingers or a brush.
The Becca's Backlight Priming Filter is also a pretty generous sample. Considering you only need a pea size for the entire face, this will last me a couple of months.
 I don't have an individual picture of the tarte sunscreen, but I do want to note how nice the pumps are. It's nice to have a pump bottle as the squeezy ones can have the product oozing out if you put pressure on it. (yes, it has happened to me.) Pump bottles are a little bit more sturdy and these ones include a cap!
 The three face products. L-R: BareMinerals bronzer, Becca primer, and Tarte sunscreen. As you can see the bronzer is very thin. I am going to have to figure out the best method to use it!
Here they are blended out. All three of these products will really help you achieve that summer glow. (They are also pretty fragrant!) Which means, none of these are mattifying. With my oily skin, I don't know how they will hold up, but I suspect they are great for drier skins!
That's all! I like that Sephora delivers on the 5 samples and 1 fragrance. I have previously received multiple fragrances in a subscription box and was very disappointed. I think fragrance is kind of a throwaway item as it's so personal, I hardly ever use them when I receive them. This is also the same sized packaging and drawstring bag, so that's a little boring. Overall I am still happy with this subscription service.
