Best 10 Dollar Beauty Box for 2018

As many of you know, I’m a bit of a subscription box connoisseur. Who doesn’t like a mailbox full of surprises? I’m especially fond of beauty boxes and I’ve often been asked which is my favorite inexpensive beauty box subscription. I must admit I’ve tried most of them and they all have something to offer, but my pick for Best 10 Dollar Beauty Box for 2018 is hands down Play! By Sephora.

Why? So glad you asked. Let me break it down…


5 Reasons why Play! By Sephora is the BEST 10 Dollar Beauty Box for 2018

Best 10 Dollar Beauty Box


Reason 5: Perks for Days!

Play! by Sephora

No other $10 Beauty Box subscription offers so many perks. 50 bonus Beauty Insider Points to spend on Sephora Beauty Products in store, subscriber-only events and video how-tos and tutorials. Not to mention, a free in person one-on-one tutorial in store. Two words: THE BEST!


Reason 4: On Trend Products

Best 10 Dollar Beauty Box

I see the ladies over at Subscription Addiction agree with me about Play! by Sephora being the best. Smart women! Which brings us to the #4 reason. The box is always full of trendy products that I’ve been hearing about and wanting to try.

I don’t know of another beauty box that is so on trend for what’s happening right now in the beauty industry and it only makes since…They’re SEPHORA!


Reason 3: The Brands We Love

Every month I’m continually excited to see my favorite brands showing up to the party. The Sephora beauty box is always full of heavy hitters and up-and-comers and I’m always delighted by the mix. I’m including a review of the Play! by Sephora January 2018 box so you can see and example of what I’m talking about.

Reason 2: Curated to Perfection

Another feature that sets Sephora Play apart from the competition is the excellence of their curation. All of the beauty items are thoughtfully picked out and come together to form a really fun theme each month. The products flow and work with one another to often create a cohesive look. Plus, inside your Play! by Sephora box is a well designed collectible bag and a magazine worthy product menu. Everything is completely cohesive and always full of chic flare!

Reason 1: More Bang for your Buck

The last reason is really the summation of the last four points. There is simply no other beauty box subscription that can offer so much for so little. For $10 a month I receive the perfect little beauty box in my mailbox that always puts a smile on my face.

Can you say HAPPY MAIL???


Play! by Sephora January 2018 Review

Now for an example of the beauty box goodness, here are the six beauty products in the Play! by Sephora January (2018) box!

Play by Sephora January 2018

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Kristen 

I love the size and shade of this Anastasia lip gloss. It will last a long time and the color is a rosy-nude shade that looks great on pretty much everyone. It’s like my natural lip shade, but better.

This is a great pic for a beauty box because it’s a great brand and a useful beauty staple. Plus, a slightly larger full-size tube costs $16, which for me means my Sephora Play box is paid for with this one product!

GlamGlow Supercleanse Cleanser 

I love how creamy this cleanser is. It has a blend of three charcoals and goes on a very pigmented lavender grey color which is always fun. I didn’t notice too much foaming action going on, but my skin felt smooth and clean.

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream 

I’ve used this Clinique eye cream before and enjoyed it. It has a cooling sensation that I love. It just calms me and my skin right down and removes the puff from my eyes. A little goes a long way, so even though this sample is itty-bitty, it will last for several uses. Who doesn’t love Clinique??

Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel 

This little beauty was the surprise for me in this box. I was shocked at how much dead skin came off with this peel. I have used a ton of different masks and exfoliating products, but I can honestly say this was the most exfoliation I have ever received from a single product. My skin felt totally different after and looked visibly younger. This is a product that I wouldn’t have tried if it wasn’t for Sephora Play, but I will definitely be buying again. SO GOOD!

Ouai Hair Treatment Mask

I’m often let down by hair masks. They promise so much and often don’t deliver. This Ouai treatment mask gets it done. It left my hair shiney and soft, but not weighed down. Again, this is a mask that I would buy again.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer

I think Smashbox has some of the best primers on the market and it’s just genius that they added a moisturizer to this one. There can be so many steps to getting ready in the morning and it’s nice when a hard working product can eliminate one of those steps. My makeup stays put and my skin stays moisturized. Win, win!


Beauty Box Low Down

As you can see, I’m quite smitten with the Play! by Sephora beauty box and I’m excited for another year of HAPPY MAIL! This post wasn’t sponsored and I didn’t receive any free product for writing it, I just honestly adore this subscription box and wanted to share it’s beauty goodness with The Crew!
