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

Seems like a great value and will probably continue to be a pretty great value considering the products/brands Sephora stocks.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Do you get anything extra (like double points) for purchasing full sizes of this months items? 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

No there's just a card in the booklet that is included that looks like a BI card that you can take into a Sephora store and with any purchase get an extra 50 BI points.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I was quite pleased to receive Box #64. All the items were things I was interested in trying. My daughter has laid claim to the Madam C.J. Walker product, though. I may try to foist the Rahua hair mask from last month off on her instead, because I don't care for the way it smells. My boxes seem to be on an improvement curve.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I feel the same about the Rahua mask...and shampoo & conditioner...it smells weird to me 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

RE: Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

This was my box also

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I'm pretty sure I'm getting box 049, the one with the Boscia Charcoal face mask. I'm pretty excited for it, since I currently don't have any deep cleaning masks.

I'm excited to use the MILK Cooling stick too!

The funny thing is, before I found out this month's bag says "Glamp Out" I was explaining to my friend what "glamping" was haha.

Looks good! My only complaint is that the original play is supposed to be non exclusive - it'd be nice if they included from these brands occasionally too, which I never see.

RE: Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Whoa. How do we get this one?

RE: Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

It was a Rouge only one-time box that came out at the end of June

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

So I received my Play box today (#075) and I am actually really happy with it!  It has actually been possibly my favorite box that I've received so far.

 

I received the KVD in lovesick (the shade I wanted) and I'm happy with the color and will wear it.

 

I love the scent of the setting mist and I love that it has SPF in it.  It'll go in my travel bag and I'm happy with it.

 

I did receive the POREfessional primer and while I don't love this item I will use it and it's functional for me.

 

I am thrilled with the hair care samples that I received!

I have not yet tried the Madam CJ Walker Curl Whip or the DevaCurl super cream and am excited to have both to try now.  I am super impressed with the sizes of both of these samples.  I'm also really happy that Sephora listened to my play profile and sent me items for curly hair instead of just dry shampoo or something lol.

 

I was pretty disappointed in the Rahua hair mask I received a month or two ago, not because I didn't like the product, but because I have extremely thick massive coarse curly hair and I need a lot of product.  I'm glad that's not an issue for me this month.

 

I really like the Bright Crystal scent although it isn't my favorite, I will wear it and I am happy to have it. Smiley Happy

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I cancelled my play box, I felt like things were just not what I was going to use I still have a couple older play boxes waiting to be used of gifted. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I know different people get different things in their playbox.  An I missing on where to review items I receive to get a little more specific.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

This is definitely the strangest and least favorite for me yet .  That hot pink/ magenta is just ...no. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

It's late but here is my Play! Experience.

 

I went to the one in NYC (86th and Lexington). I got there late because of traffic issues. I wasn't the only late comer and in the end there were about 12 of us.The beauty consultants usually start with an ice breaker ( this months question was to tell one quirky thing about yourself). They then displayed the items that were in the boxes and told us how to use each one, giving us little tips and tricks about how to use them. What I found interesting was that they freely admitted when they hadn't tried a product yet instead of bluffing their way through an 'oh it's the best thing since sliced bread' description. We were able to ask questions and were given samples of things we wanted to try.

 

Each of us got a bag so I assumed that they went by the number of RSVP's. They actually had to go in the back and get more bags for some of us latecomers so I don't know how many bags that Sephora actually received. In the bag were the following samples

 

Caviar Anti-Aging Infinite Color Hold TopCoat                         Shine Spray .85 fl.oz

Becca First Light Priming Filter  0.2 fl.oz

GlamGlow Youth Mud .5 oz

Drunk Elephant Lao Retro Whipped Cream .5 fl oz

 

I do want to commend Jeannette ( the coordinator of these events at Sephora 86th and Lexington) and her staff. At each of the Play! events that I have attended, they have been very professional and upbeat, willing to answer questions and make samples, and doing everything to make sure that our experiences are enjoyable and educational. Kudos to you, Jeannette- you are a superstar in my book! 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I got my box yesterday and my highlighter stick is totally unusable :-(. The whole product came out of the tub is is squished/melted into the cap. I don't even think I could get it out to shove into the tube-----deciding whether or not I should contact them i've never received anything broken before but reading people's comments it seems like a lot of people experienced the same problem. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I like this box..I got 272.  Belif is something I really like as a brand so far, the hair mask is always welcome, and my daughter snagged the highlighter pencil immediately.  The Tocca perfume is okay- Ill use it eventually.  i also always want to try new cleansing oils, so the Tata Harper was a win.  The only thing Im not thrilled by is the Nudestix color I got, a dark brown.  I even  thought the bag was cute and Ill find something for it...

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I'm so sad....my box was missing the Sunday Riley product, which is the one I was most looking forward to Smiley Sad  I sent an email to CS...are they usually able to sent you a replacement?  I'm worried they'll just give me points instead :/

 

 

EDIT:  Less than an hour after sending my email I got a shipping confirmation sending me a replacement sample Smiley Happy  Yay!  Thanks for the awesome customer service!
