October Sephora Play! Box: Secrets to Dewy Skin

I can't believe that this is already the last Friday of October and tomorrow is Halloween! Time sure does fly!

I received my Sephora Play! box last week but haven't gotten around to sharing til now so let's get right into it!

This month, Sephora is all about dewy skin so the box is curated with products to help you achieve just that! The dewy skin trend started in Asia, where South Korean women have perfected their elaborate skincare routines.

boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser and Charcoal Konjac Sponge

The warming gel cleanser and charcoal konjac sponge help to clarify, exfoliate, and draw out impurities for bright, lit-from-within skin.

>> #PlayHack: Let your konjac sponge soak in warm water for a few minutes. This will help to make its pillow-soft surface even more soothing for delicate skin.

Sephora Pearl Mask

The hydrating, easy to use sheet mask is formulated with white pearl for a more even, luminous complexion in just 15 minutes.

>> #PlayHack: Let your mask cool off in the refrigerator for an hour prior to using it. You'll get all of the same skin-smoothing benefits, and the coolness is particularly good for redness-prone skin.

fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Instant Infusion

This silky treatment toner refines the appearance of pores while moisturizing and protecting from pollutants and other environmental damage.

>> #PlayHack: While you're on the go, keep this toner in a small spray bottle and occasionally give yourself a little spritz for a quick, easy dose of hydration.

belief The True Cream Aqua Bomb

Bypass dryness with this lightweight gel cream, made to sink in for hours of smooth skin.

>> #PlayHack: To keep your face feeling fresh, apply a generous amount of this cream as a mask. Let it soak in for five minutes, then remove any excess with a damp cloth.

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Day Tint

This rich, ceramide-enhanced, UV protective tinted cream promotes softer-feeling skin and perfects tone while leaving a sheer finish.

>> #PlayHack: To get a natural, no makeup look, skip the foundation and let this product sink into your skin. It creates a healthy-looking glow that is perfect for weekends and days off - or when you're just feeling a little lazy and low-key.

I haven't opened any of the products to use yet but I'm really excited to try them all out! I've used a product from boscia before and can't wait to use the cleanser and konjac sponge!

I'm definitely going to use the #PlayHack for the fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Instant Infusion.
