Products I Love From Birchbox + Sephora Play!


Subscription boxes may have passed the peak of their craze, but I loved them to find new products, try new trends and even get some of my favorite products in travel size. I've subscribed to Birchbox since probably 2014 and Sephora Play! since it first came out. Many of the products are honestly just sitting in my drawers, but some of them are new holy grail products that have introduced themselves into my daily skincare and makeup routines. Instead of committing to years of product exploration, here are all of the best finds! 


Continue below for a full product list from least to most expensive, along with tidbits about what I love about them! I've been wanting to try the Revolve Beauty box - if you have, leave me a comment below, I'd love to hear how you like it!


Full Favorites List

Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes, Acure Organics - $7

These are a great replacement for Neutrogena or Burt's Bees wipes! 

Perk Up Dry Shampoo, amika - $22

This dry shampoo smells the best of any products I've found

Gravity Mud Firming Treatment, Glam Glow - $22

The quintessential silver mask! It definitely makes you glow, and makes your skin feel amazing after! Since it's firming, I like to use a eye moisture mask or cream after.

Makeup Ubame Mascara, Milk - $24

The wand for this mascara is in waves, making the product distribute unevenly onto your lashes, giving a naturally beautiful look!

Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, Benefit Cosmetics - $24

My fav brow gel! 

Coconut Crush Scrub. Kopari - $28

Uh hello Hawaii! This scrub leaves your body extremely exfoliated and smells amazing!

Full Dry Volume Blast, LIVING PROOF - $29

I'm a big fan of their dry shampoo too, but this volumizer leaves my flat hair with some shape without being gritty.

Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter, BENEFIT COSMETICS - $30

Such a great highlighter! I use my finger to apply to help it melt down a bit before application

Eye Opening Mascara, BOBBI BROWN - $30

My current obsession - the darkness and longevity of this mascara is amazing.

Rose Hair & Body Oil, OUAI - $32

I've loved using this over coconut oil, and leaves my hair feeling moisturized! 

Every Sun Day SPF 30 UV Sun Fluid, Dr. Jart+ - $34

Loved the consistency of this sunscreen and used it as a morning moisturizer.

Moist & Firm Beauty Balm SPF 45, IPKN - $35

This is another CC cream that I love using for lighter coverage. The coloring worked perfectly for me!

Superfine Hair Spray, Oribe - $36

This is my go-to hair spray! It's fine so doesn't weigh down your hair and doesn't make it look like you have a ton of product in.

Smarty Plants™ CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector, ORIGINS - $37 (not pictured)

This was one of my first finds through Birchbox. It's an amazing CC cream especially for everyday makeup or during the summer.

Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, CHRISTOPHE ROBIN - $53

If you buy anything from this list - it needs to be this! This is a cleansing shampoo that truly makes my hair immediately more vibrant. I'll use it once a week and the foaming sensation makes my hair feel amazing!

Black Opium, YVES SAINT LAURENT - $91

Perfumes can be hard to find online and are so personal, so I'll take no offense if you don't like this scent! When this came in one of my boxes, I absolutely loved it!! It's a darker scent, perfect for a date night or fall! I'd recommend trying it out at Sephora or getting a roller ball to make sure you love it before dropping $100!
