It's my second month of getting Sephora Play and so far so good. October's theme is about perfecting your complexion. Included with this month's goodies were tips on achieving perfect skin - hydration, a killer skincare routine, and of course makeup.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water - Cleansing micellar water contains tiny oil molecules that attract oil impurities, so it's like a mild makeup remover, face wash and moisturizer all rolled into one product. It contains HydroSenn+, Sephora's trademark plant-derived ingredient that delivers immediate and long-lasting hydration to skin.

Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum - If you're looking for something potent to fight dullness and dark spots while also brightening your skin, look no further. This serum is infused with THD ascorbate (a stable, lipid-soluble form of vitamin C) to offset oxidative damage that can otherwise result in the degradation of collagen and elastin.

Urban Decay Quick Fix Hydracharged Complexion Prep Priming Spray - The coconut water in this priming spray provides skin with a moisture boost prior to applying makeup and anytime throughout the day. Just spritz some on whenever your skin starts to look dull and in need of a pick-me-up. Plus it smells like coconuts...mmmmmm.

Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum for Her - Do you like florals? Then try this; the name says it all. Aptly named Bloom, this perfume has notes of jasmine and tuberose with a hint of rangoon creeper. Fun fact: rangoon creeper is a tropical plant with white flowers that turn pink and then red when it blooms. Sounds pretty - I need to get me one of these plants!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer in Medium - Bye Bye Under Eye is a full coverage concealer designed to even out skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but I'm curious to see how well it'll hide scars and blemishes. I've been having some yucky pregnancy acne that leaves behind lingering scars - yup, my first pregnancy acne scar (and each one after that) is still here four months later! Surprisingly, the best concealer I've found so far has been a drugstore brand, but it won't hurt to see how this one compares.

Make Up For Ever in Y335-Dark Sand - Kudos to Sephora for color matching! Out of 40 possible shades, this is the one I would have picked out for myself. Plus it's in a multi-use bottle (with pump!). This is a buildable lightweight foundation with a seamless application so your face won't look cakey. I love no-makeup makeup.


Click here to subscribe to Play by Sephora for $10 a month. You'll get a drawstring bag packed with deluxe samples of makeup and cosmetics to try before buying. And if you do end up loving it you can purchase the full size straight from your account. How convenient!
