My Dr Jart water drop moisturizer came expired 🙁 it reads EXP 190316 which I’m assuming means expired March 19th 2016. I contacted customer service and am waiting on a reply!

MIne that I got in my Birchbox a couple months ago says 190223, so I’m thinking the year is actually first—mine would be February 23, 2019 with that reading. Dr. Jart is K-beauty, which I think puts the year first instead of the month like we Americans are often used to.

Received the Kat Von D in my September box. This unfortunately causes an allergic reaction in my eyes.. I’ll have to throw it out! The parabens in it do not react well with me. Everything else great.. Love the Atelier Sud Magnolia.

Oh, that looks cool. Maybe it was by skin type after all – I think I put down discoloration. Or maybe it’s by age.

Mine still hasn’t updated my products. I’m getting the 80 and I’ve been getting this box since the very beginning, I’m sort of hoping for a little more variation. I like that box listed but I’ve already recieved the tattoo liner (which I love but I already have 3!) and the ole came in my first box. I’d love to to the dr jart so fingers crossed for that.

My box ends in 80, and I’m getting everything except the Tory Burch and Dr. Jart. Instead, I’m getting Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation and Atelier Cologne in Sud Magnolia. My lipstick is in the shade Love Spell.

You’re very welcome, Liz! I’m sad I won’t get to try Dr. Jart after reading all of the positive comments about it, but Ole Henriksen is a great brand, too.

I was just running out of my last sample of Dr. Jart+ so I’m pretty excited about that. I’ve always wanted to try an ABH product AND the KVD tattoo liner. The lipstick hopefully will come in a good color. I love Living Proof, especially their perfect hair day range. And Tory Burch has some good perfumes. Not at all mad at this box!

Heads up for the Play pass, I don’t think those extra 50 points count towards becoming a VIB. I used their 3x points offer yesterday and that one only counted towards rewards.

I think you’re right. I Always thought VIB status was based on how much is spent, not how many points were accumulated. That would be nice if I was wrong! I accumulate far more points than $ spent there.

When I logged into my account, under Puchase History for the September Box, it shows Out of Stock but my credit card was already charged.

Does this mean I won’t be getting the September box?

Thanks for any input!

Huh, I guess I’m the only one who isn’t at all interested in this month’s selections. I have that brow gel x2, never use liquid liner, much less in black, and the rest is just meh to me. Oh well, guess I’m too picky these days but glad everyone else is so thrilled 🙂

I have loved the last 3 boxes I’ve gotten from Sephora Play! but I am disappointed that my box doesn’t come till around 26-27th each month. I haven’t gotten to stop in to use my “free play” at the store because time always runs out before I can get by there. Anyone else struggle with this?

The pass doesn’t expire until the end of the next month. So you can use your August pass until September 30, and your September pass until October 31 etc. Hope this helped 🙂

This is my first month, but when I was reading about the Play! Pass, I believe it said you have until the end of the next month to use it—so even if you don’t get your box until late in the month, you’re supposed to have the entire next month to use it.

Here’s the FAQ section that addresses the Play! Pass expiration date: http://m.sephora.com/play-faqs?icid2=play_botnav_faqs_image_mobile#playpass

I went shopping at Sephora today and the girl who worked there was so sweet. She gave me a sample size of the lipstick we are getting in the subscription. It’s so tiny and cute! I wonder if it will be the same color?

Both the eyeliner and brow gel have parabens 🙁 the two items I wanted to love the most. Sadness. This might turn out to be another sub I cancel as well

I’m getting totally different stuff in my Play box. It says im getting – Ready for Liftoff by caudalie (eye lifting serum) , Keeping a Low Profile by Cancome (moisturizer), Shimmer Takes All by Make-up Forever in color I-544, Rise To The Taupe by Sephora (12 hour contouring pencil), At Long lash by Urbandecay (perversion mascara), and the perfume is Right Under Your Nose by Clean Reserve (Blonde Rose). I think I like yours better. Oh well, this is my very first Play, we will see how it goes.

I really hope I get the ABH Brow Gel in my variation. I use the Brow Wiz everyday, but I’ve never tried the brow gel. I’ve been wanted to get one recently, though, so this would be perfect to try.

I am getting the box number 98 so i guess it will be the same as the spoiler. This will be my third month with Play and I love it. There is always a variety of products and I love getting a new fragrance every month.

I have a theory that one of the differing items might be the living proof. Dr. Jart is good for all skin types but in the spoiler video she is putting living proof on the ends of her hair. I suspect it might be the oil or split end repair.

I hope so! I’m getting the 80 box and listed my hair as dry, I believe. I really want to try that Dr. Jart so I hope that will be in both boxes.

I find that theory believable. I have the 80 box and they would give me the oil. If I don’t get the overnight protector I’ll try to swap for it.

Play! always has perfume in it. If there’s any variation there, it’ll be the specific scent you receive. From what I’ve noticed having read past month’s spoilers, it’s always the same designer. The variations they’ve had for the other products the past couple months have been same type product as far as category goes but not always the same brand for all.

This is my first box and every single thing is a knock out! I literally was going to buy the Kat Von D eyeliner (glad I didn’t) and I need a brow gel. I’ve got the 80 box, so hopefully there isn’t too much variation. I can’t wait to see what color the lipstick and eyeliner are!
So glad I followed this site and signed up for a subscription when I did, I’ve been on the “waiting list” for months and never received an email, only got on the sub list when it was posted on this site that they were taking subscription orders.
I have only gotten two Allure boxes, but I’m already ready to cancel, considering how much cheaper and better this one is. I need another undereye cream like a hole in the head.

Don’t worry; the Allure eye cream is so tiny, it won’t clutter things too long. This was only my second Allure box and I cancelled.

Overall, I really like the Play box. I’m not too excited about this one though. I already have four black liners from all of my subs. Black is a good staple, but I don’t wear it that often because I’m really pale. I wish that we’d get charcoal, dark brown, etc to mix it up a bit. I guess I shouldn’t complain, since I received that awesome dark plum liner last month!! I love it.

The Perfect Hair Day stuff smells soooo good! It seems like everyone loves it. I feel like it weighed my fine hair down so it wouldn’t hold a curl when I tried it before. It also darkened my hair temporarily. Has anyone else had this happen? I feel like a freak because it seems like the whole world is in love with it!

Ah, I remember the good ol’ days when I only had 4 black liners. After almost 3 years subscribing to beauty boxes, I now have a Glossybox and two Birchboxes full of just eyeliners. ?

I’m excited for this box! I’ve always wanted to try that brow gel but have have always said “next time”! I’m so jealous that people have already gotten shipping notifications! Both Me and my mom’s boxes don’t ship/come until the very end of the month. It’s SO hard waiting!
