  1. Just became a subscriber last night. Might end up cancelling my Birchbox through.

  2. I had it for most of last year.. loved it for a few months, then hated it so canceled. Of course the 2 months after I canceled I loved it and couldn’t get resubscribed LOL finally got in today so here is hoping :p

  3. I have no idea if I’m getting the January one . I subscribed a little over a week ago , my order details was there for a few days than gone. Than back again today with a different order number and I also was charged today . Hopefully that means I’ll get it this month

  4. Dear Sephora,

    Please make this box available for Canadians. We want pretty things too!

    Thank you.

    Canadian beauty addicts

    • This is not Sephora. Email them directly

      • I don’t think this was meant to be seen by Sephora…..

      • LOL, just expressing frustration. Given Sephora Canada only recently allowed the use of giftcards online, I don’t think they would care if I emailed them directly…

        • They certainly do not care. Their customer service has been dismal in my experience.

        • I got your joke, woodstock! I’m not Canadian, but I once read about the trouble one Canadian lady goes through to get it sent to a US PO box, then going there to pick it up and all that jazz and it made me glad to be an American. lol

    • I am swapping my entire December and January box, if you’re interested. I thought about cancelling altogether,. But, decided I should keep it for sephora subbox envy cases such as yours.

      yes, I am serious.

      • The December box with the red lipstick and the dry shampoo? That’s the box that made me wish I hadn’t been stuck on the waitlist and finally sign up now! Did you get the Bourbon perfume or the Rose?

  5. Thank you for letting us know Liz! I was on the waitlist and now I’m subscribed! Yay!

  6. It’s the only beauty box I still get I like trying the high end products. I do miss getting some full size products from julep and glossybox though.

  7. Anyone know if we’ll receive the January box?

    • Hi Emily, probably not if you just subscribed today. I think you need to subscribe before the end of the previous month to get the current month. I just subscribed a few months ago maybe mid-month, and if I recall correctly, I wasn’t charged until the 1st of the following month, which was my first box. So, check if you get charged for signing up today, in case things are different because of the holiday weekend, but likely, February will be your first box.

    • Under the “details” header it says:

      – New subscribers’ first box will be the one for the month following the month in which they subscribe (so if you subscribe from 11/1-11/30, your first box will be December, but if you sign up after 11/30, your first box will be January)

      so it sounds like signing up now means you’d start with Feb

      • Ah ok! That’s perfectly fine by me – I wasn’t too excited for January’s spoilers but I’ve been wanting to try this one out.


        • I was super excited about the spoilers the month I subbed, but alas, I didn’t get that box, lol. I have generally enjoyed what I receive from Sephora Play since I subbed though, so I can’t complain too much. I’m sad I missed out on the eyes one several months ago cause I can’t get enough of eye creams and eye makeup (except black mascara and eyeliner).
