Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Share photos and reviews on your Sephora Play Subscription Boxes here. If you're looking for reviews on any other box, look here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Subscription-box-photo-sharing/td-p/973905 

 

The subscription program is only offered by invitation at the moment. If you have not received an invite, you can join the waiting list here: http://www.sephora.com/play 

 

I do not have control over who receives invitations (whether they live in test cities or not), but I will edit this once the program opens to new groups.

 

If you want more information on the program or have questions not related to someone's box review, please visit this thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/PLAY-by-SEPHORA-Invitation-FAQs/td-p/2124432

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

There is a video on how to use all the PLAY! items located  in your Sephora page .  You sort of scrunch it a little . 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@Tstorm Thank you so much! I just realized they added mini tutorials on the Play! Sephora page. It's very helpful! Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

This does look good . 

I am hoping to get the red clay cleanser and the pore minimizing primer but based on my billing saying dry/normal I think I'm going to end up with half of a box I can't really use .  

I'm interested in how they determined how we get categorized as dry or oily . 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I am getting the dry box (which I want), but I filled out my Play! Profile. It is different from the Sephora profile. Does your Play! profile say you're oily? If so, I'd call and see if you can get it corrected. If not, update it. My guess is ones that are not updated are chosen at random.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Unfortunately I think those two products are part of the oily/combo box Smiley Sad Maybe you could swap boxes with someone else who would rather have a different box? It looks like they decide who gets which box based on what information you entered in your Play profile. For some reason I can only see it on mobile, not on desktop, but when I go to "Account", then "Play! by Sephora", there is a link to complete a profile for the box where you enter your skin type. You might want to check and make sure they have your correct skintype so you receive the best products for your skin!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

My profile states oily / combination 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Then the thing to do would probably be to call or email Sephora directly and explain the problem! Hopefully you're able to get the correct box Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Does anyone know if I can use my Play card for the 50 points at SiJCP stores? Has anyone tried? 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

yes you can! as others have said, the two times I've presented it the SA look all confused and had no idea what it is. the one wasn't even sure it would scan lol (it did scan)

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Yep! That is where I redeemed mine. Granted the manager was confused about what it was, but thankfully one of the cast members knew what it was.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@Samtian- LOL - This happens to me at regular Sephora, too!  I've had Play since it started and I've only encountered 3 SAs who knew what the card was for. One SA thought it was for a makeover.  In their defense, they said they are not allowed to subscribe and several have asked to see pics of the products.  Smiley Happy

 

They only recently started scanning the cards at SiJCP.  When the sub first started, it didn't work (I tried), but the SA gave me the card back just in case and I redeemed it at regular Sephora.  Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Yay! Thank you @Samtian!! 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Just saw a picture of the Sephora November play on Instagram. It looks like it includes:

- A bite beauty high pigment pencil in Rhubarb

- A buxom full on lip cream in Dolly

- A Sephora waterproof eye pencil in 29 my boyfriends jeans 

- A Josie Maran argan oil light

- A make up for ever hydrating step 1 primer 

& lastly a Stella McCartney Stella perfume sample 

 

I already own everything except the bite lippie and the Sephora eye pencil so I'm not very excited for this month's box but the content is pretty good compared to other monthly subscription boxes. Smiley Happy

 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Not super excited by th is except for Bite, but the last two months were good, so it's ok. I don't expect to love every box

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Can you link?

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

OMGGGG BITE Rhubarb is my favorite color from the brand. It is my mistress lipstick (my biach is KVD Lolita). This box looks amazing def better than last month's box. Last month's box was a total let down. I 'm gonna be really happy if that's what we're getting!!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Thanks for relaying the information! I think I agree with you; the samples look to be a pretty solid line-up, so how you feel about the box will probably depend on how you feel about a brand/if you already have a product or not. 

 

I'm excited for the bite lip pencil (can never have too much Bite! Smiley Very Happy), but I'm fairly certain I've owned Dolly once, I received the eyeliner as a promo code sample once, and I have such mixed feelings regarding Josie Maran argan oil. I'm interested in testing out the primer, but as I'm fairly picky about my primers, that sample feels like a toss-up for me too.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Look what was waiting outside for me!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Lucky! I received my box today but mine was missing two items. Sephora issued a refund but I'm super bummed. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Oh no!  Did they refund you for the cost of the full box or say 2/6 of the cost.  I guess given it is the rollout period it's kind of a given that there will be mistakes (even though they are extremely disappointing).  However, it does seem like a miss that they can't approach it like Birchbox often does and just send you the missing items.
