Sephora Play March Products
Sephora Play March was okay. I received two hair products in the bag – both were similar. Overall, it wasn’t a bad bag but I’m still wishing Sephora Play would stop sending me hair products altogether – my natural hair 4C texture is picky so generally, these products don’t work well.
IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm Review
IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm: This product smells amazing. I use it to soften my edges and so far it’s alright. I will not be purchasing the full-size though – the price is above my current hair balm budget.

AMIKA Soulfood Nourishing Mask Review
AMIKA Soulfood Nourishing Mask: I have also been using this on my edges. The company has been heavily promoting this product lately so it was no surprise when I saw a sample in the box. It smells great, however, I found the IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm more moisturizing.

BOBBI BROWN Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm Review
BOBBI BROWN Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm: I am still trying to figure out the point of this illuminating moisture balm by Bobbi Brown. Overall, to me, it is just a product Bobbi Brown decided to slap their name on.
I used it as a face moisturizer, it smelled funny and there wasn’t any glow whatsoever, it somewhat feels like a makeup primer. For me, that’s a pass all the way – what were they thinking?

SUPERGOOP! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Review
SUPERGOOP! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50: Supergoop setting mist smells like Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer. I sprayed it on and I was like hold up I think I have something very similar to this.
Same Minty Fresh Scent
Supergoop has the same minty fresh scent and leaves behind the same tacky heavy feeling the Ben Nye Final Seal leaves behind. I always have to set my face with a translucent powder when I use the Ben Nye Seal just to get rid of the tacky feeling. I had to do the same for Supergood setting mist.
On a positive note, I like the spray nozzle on Supergoop! setting mist sample so I will be using it for other products.
Ben Nye Final Seal An Alternative
While both seem similar, the SPF 50 in Supergoop setting spray differentiates it from the Ben Nye Final Seal. Overall, I am not a fan of either. However, if you like Supergoop setting spray and you don’t mind forgoing the SPF 50 then the Ben Nye Final Seal might be a great alternative – it’s a little cheaper and you get more.

STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Review
STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: This waterproof eyeliner from Stila was great – they did their thing on this one. This eyeliner wasn’t easy to remove. I had to use a cotton swab and really work to get this waterproof liquid eyeliner off, so thumbs up to them. The price, however, is up there but I don’t mind as long as a product does what it suppose to do.

KORRES Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser Review
KORRES Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser: Great cleanser – it smells great and it performs well. I like it but it doesn’t replace my Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask by Estée Lauder no way.
