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

sorry about the weird text orientation typing on an iPad it didn't work out to well.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

So, I have completely forgotten to use my Sephora Play card for extra points each time I've been in a free standing store since receiving my box!

 

I really wish we could use it online!

 

Also - has anyone had success using it at SiJCP?  They told me it wouldn't work there, and they wouldn't even try it, but I am very curious...

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Yes. I used mine at sijcp. The girl at counter didn't know how to do it but then the manager stepped in and taught her how to do it and what it was. 

The girl said she was jealous about the extra points and play subscription. 😜

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Well that's upsetting. I had a SIJCP associate tell me they simply could not do it. Smiley Sad

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I used mine the weekend that I received mine, luckily a SIJCP associate is subscribed to Sephora Play and everyone in the store knew how to do it. Perhaps I was lucky.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

The one thing I did notice that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere is that the fragrance sample in this month's box is not what I consider a deluxe sample at all. It looks like just a regular sample that one gets from every online order. This feels like a bit of a rip-off since the service does promise 6 deluxe samples.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I agree with you, but it also seems par for the course with these boxes.  Birchbox does the same thing with fragrances.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

5 deluxe samples plus 1 fragrance. Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Definitely didn't see this note. I guess I can't complain for bonus perfume samples if it's a bonus!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Mine isn't coming till Friday...Friday will be September 26th.  I'm super bummed to have to pay on the 9th & then have to wait 2 and a half  weeks. 

 

Is this going to be the norm? Smiley Sad 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Me too! Smiley Sad 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

FYI  - my tracking put my delivery date as Thursday but it arrived today. Fingers crossed that yours arrives early.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Maeghan, that's how the majority of sub boxes work. I pay for my box (Birchbox, Boxycharm, Ipsy) somewhere between the 1st and 5th of the month and then get the box anywhere from the 15th to the 27th of the month. This is just the way that subscription boxes work. Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I am loving this first box. It seems like everyone got the same box, but I wonder if that is going to be the norm of if it is just in the beta program.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

The way they have marketed to date leads me to believe that we're all going to be receiving a set box.  Not to mention the way the booklet is printed (if they continue with that) it's hard to imagine them coming up with them for as many combinations as Birchbox has, a single printed card seems easier.

 

I really hope they reconsider that in the future, especially for skin care I prefer getting things more geared towards my individual needs, not that Birchbox is always dead on but it is close-ish. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I agree. This looks super exciting, but I will be less excited over time if all the boxes are the same. Even when I dislike Birchbox items, I understand based on my profile why I received them. It took me a while to understand why I kept getting curly hair treatments until someone explained it was that I selected my hair is frizzy (it is), but it is only curly on the underside and wavy on top. That makes pulling off curly hair products difficult. My hair has a hard time looking curly.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I think Sephora got very strict with leaks about spoliers. There are not many spoilers until now. Usually boxes get shipped by now. I wonder if this is going to be the case every month? It became an obsession to check for spoilers every day from the first week but then may be it is good that it doesn't take away surprise when we receive it  (that is if we are happy about the box we received Smiley Happy )

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I am surprised that the only box we've seen so far is 49. I wonder if they sent them out in waves of each box to keep the interest up?

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I think they are sending them in waves. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Im thinking they took a hit with subscription cancellations seeing they are now offering the May Play Box as a 500 point perk. NO WAY is that box worth 500 points! 250 would be reasonable but not 500. Sephora really need to step up their game with the Play Boxes!
