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

I vote for the foreo mini disposable Play, heck even promote their cleanser with it! I'd love to see a Sephora pro tool like an eyeshadow brush or face brush. One nice item like this would keep Play! on edge and worth keeping. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I am not understanding the 'Best in Glow' theme. 

 

I hope next month they include a gift card instead of the 50 point card for Christmas!  

 

 

I need something else to spend my $10 on. I hated the last 3 boxes.  I have a lot of unused products or things I go ahead and try once even thought I knew I would not like them. 

 

Any suggestions.........?

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I wish you could redeem the 50 points with online orders too. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

true! 

 

After never redeeming my card, I was able to redeem 2-50 point cards in-store and one didn't even take and I forgot to call CS.  Such a hassle/waste. 

 

For next year, they should allow online redemption. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Did you use both cards in one transaction? If so, that's why one didn't take. Only one works per transaction. On the back it says "If you redeem multiple passes in a sing transaction, you will only receive 50 bonus points". Which is kind of annoying.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

No, 2 different transactions.  I was checking my last transaction because something funny happened. Then remembered I had redeemed another card the previous month and didn't see the 50 points. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

That has happened to me also. Two different transactions, two different months, and no points.

 

I didn't catch it quickly enough to call CS either, and the cashiers took both cards away (which I had been keeping, as a quick reference for what I liked or didn't, and had or had not tried yet). (Check mark, with or without an X through)

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I wish they would as well. Closest store to me is 3 1/2 hours away. Don't get there very often so never get to redeem my points. Last few times I could when I was traveling, forgot to bring the card. 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Thank you @wheeeee I thought I was the only one confused by this theme/the timing.

 

A gift card would be AMAZING

Spoiler
but considering how much Sephora has taken out of the Rouge program I think I have a better chance of being hit by a car 😐

 

They have to be seeing all of this feedback.  I just wish companies would react to feedback a little quicker.  Those surveys on the Play! boxes were sent out months ago, I had hoped we would have experienced some changes by now.  

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

hahahahaha!  @ElleElleG

 

PLAY is not Rouge.  We are paying for these boxes!

 

It is not wise to start treating your side 'sample selling' business like the Rouge program.  hahahaha! 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@wheeeee I choked on my coffee at "your side sample selling business" 😂😂

 

I hope you're right though.  Not sure how much longer I can rationalize keeping the subscription if we keep receiving "meh" boxes.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Omg! hahahah! Sorry @ElleElleG

 

I am done!  I wanted to love this box and have stuck it out long enough. 

 

Next month will be my last.  

We are over, PLAY box!  lol

 

In 2017, I will spend my $120 on things I want.

 

Sorry, it didn't work out. 

 

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Whenever I receive the "Your Box has Shipped" notification I know that means your box is out for delivery, LOL.

 

Confirming the contents of box 280 and the "bag" this month is envelope style, I may actually use this

 

 

Edit: forgot second photo

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Lol ElleElleG.  That's so true, I get the email the same day I receive the box, if not after!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

LOL!  I'll take it considering I used to get these notices but my box would take another week to arrive @michelleshops

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I like it!!!! ;')

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

It feels odd to say it @wheeeee but this is the first time in a while that I've been satisfied with product selection.  I also don't know if I've ever seen a "bag" that I looked forward to using.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

The boxes sometimes are not exciting.

 

May seems a little more interesting.  

 

What is that brown stick?  Eyeshadow????

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@wheeeee Agreed I'd say I've had more misses with these boxes as a whole than hits, let's hope Sephora is FINALLY hearing our feedback & giving us things that aren't left overs 😉

 

The stick is a Nudestix lip crayon in Greystone, I believe everyone will receive this item

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

I got my 280 box today too! I really like the bag, and I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the Skin Laundry. I also haven't tried this brand before, so I'm happy to get to experience a new product rather than something I already have 10 backups of.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

@ElleElleG you got a great box!! i got the rahua mask too, which i'm so excited for! i was hoping for the nudestix, but no dice, so i'll be interested to see how everyone likes it!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Sorry @unfungirl I thought everyone was receiving the Nudestix this month, it may just be the Trestique product.  Some ladies received several Nudestix shades as gratis from sephora & several have left reviews of them if you're interested in their range of shades.

Highlighted

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Oh no worries @ElleElleG!!  I'm not sure it would even work for me anyway, which is why I wanted to try a mini :-) 

 

i'm sure I'll come across one sometime soon!

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Here was the Play! Birthday gift.  Comparing the size to the 2016 Spring VIB sale bag:

 

 

 

 

Thoughts about the event in the spoiler:

 

Spoiler

The group was pretty large (~16-20 people), most of whom stated they only RSVP'd to see what the gift was.  According to a couple ladies who attend regularly, 3-4 people for each event is the norm.

Because there were so many of us half of us were on each side of the makeup station.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself thanks in large part to the dynamic group we had.  The SA, who admitted being a bit overwhelmed by the number of people, was really nice and engaging.  Not only had she lined up the various items from each box, she also had other products that paired well with items from the box.  

Did I need another bag?  No, but it's better than that pen and notepad they handed out as a gift a couple months back.  Overall I am glad that I went.  I had a good time thanks to the other attendees and the SA.  Not sure how long the events typically run but we spent a little over an hour chatting with each other about the products & other Sephora things.

 

Here's to hoping they expand event locations soon!  

**Edited to Add: they did NOT have enough bags for everyone which was disappointing.  The only reason I received one was because another Play subscriber handed it to me & said she would wait for them to bring more.  Instead the SA had to run to the back & throw together 5-6 "goodie bags".  The positive is that they walked away with 6-8 deluxe samples, the downside is that because they were thrown together last minute there was no uniformity & at least one person noted several of the items she had received from the subscription previously.

Re: Play! By Sephora Subscription Box Review And Discussion

Thank you so much for sharing your experience @ElleElleG!  I'm glad you were able to get a gift and had a nice time!  I've always wondered what the Play! events are like.
