  1. Am I the only one annoyed that they’ve changed the time in which they give u to redeem the points card? I never get my box before the 15th!

    • The bonus points are good through the last day of the following month.

      • My card (the one that came with my April box just a few days ago) expires 4/30. That doesn’t give you much time to get into the store to use it. Mine never get used, so I looked back at my March card and it also expires on 4/30. Maybe it was a printing error? But if it’s a policy change, it’s a bad one. Makes the bonus points even more useless than they already were for many of us who are unlikely to get into a store sometime during the last 13 days of the month.

      • Christina they changed it…now it’s until the end of the month so it expires on April 30th. 🙁

    • Hot dam you’re right. Now that pisses me off too. I’ve been able to use it for a month and a half. This is the last time I will be able to get 100 points for a small purchase. I’ll buy like a $4 mask and use 2 cards. So I’ll use my March and now April one. But now they both expire on April 30th. Sometimes I would still buy stuff for 50 points extra but now that’s not even possible after April 30th since I’ll have to wait about 2ish weeks before I get another play pass. This was my main reason for keeping this box, not saying 50 points isn’t bad but I’m less likely to buy since it’s not 100 points because you can no longer use 2 different months at one time. 🙁

  2. This is my box and I feel like this probably the worst box yet but I still can find a use for all the items. As said, the Smashbox primer has been way overdone but at least it is useable and practical. I would rather have a newer primer like the TooFaced one and one that isn’t so much silicon based. The eyeliner is useful but if they are giving an eyeliner it is hard to use with such a short and stubby handle on it and once you start sharpening it will get worse. I’m not big on skincare but will use it since it is already in the box. The only thing I really wish they hadn’t included is the eye makeup remover because I already have that exact sample and don’t use oily makeup remover unless I have glitter on or waterproof mascara. I would have much preferred getting a more makeup orientated box with mascara, eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, lipstick, gloss, or whatever makeup items they have. You win some, you lose some. I loved the Feb and March boxes so I knew some time soon there was going to be a dud. It is always a risk subscribing to one of these boxes and so as long as there are at least 2 useable items in a box, then it’s fine.

  3. The eyeliner is TINY

  4. Actually I like this 575 box. I’m really hoping I get this box.

  5. The April 2017 box was by far the worst one yet. FOUR skin products is excessive. I subscribed to Sephora’s subscription box for makeup samples, not these overdone skin samples that I care nothing about. I can have samples of skin care made in the store for free, whereas I can’t make samples of liquid lip, lip gloss, eyebrow product, eyeshadows, mascara, etc. And the Daisy perfume is old and worn out. I’m very disappointed and I believe I am going to cancel my subscription now.

  6. I’ve tried 2 primers so I’m obviously inexperienced with them. I tried the the first one several years ago and it was a drugstore brand ( I think it was revlon) and it didn’t do anything good for me. then a while ago I got the smashbox primer in a birchbox. I liked this one and noticed a difference. I didn’t realize it was so unpopular. I understand everyones skin is different. I’d honestly like to receive recommendations on some great primers. Please share. TIA

    • Hi,
      I really like the Becca 1st light primer. It works really well for me.

      • Thanks for the reply. I’ll keep an eye out for the Becca 1st light primer. hopefully it will be in a subscription box soon

    • It’s not that Smashbox is bad, although of course some people don’t like it. People just want to try a different product, specifically a newer formula. I doubt people would complain if they’d only gotten the sample once or twice. This happened with the UD eyelid primer and Benefit Watts Up last month – it’s not that they are necessarily bad, but they aren’t really “discoveries.”

  7. This is my box and I hate it. >:( I have the full size primer that I bought FROM Sephora, I also specify that I don’t use exfoliators often, I don’t use pencil liners, and Marc Jacobs perfumes make me sneeze. The only thing I can use is the cloud cream and eye make up remover, but I just bought a make up remover that takes off my eye make up so it’s as good as useless to me.
    This month in general has been bad for subscription boxes.

  8. I got this box in the mail yesterday and each and every single item in this box is tiny. Very disappointing.

  9. I’m relieved this isn’t my box. Though if that Sephora product and the Smashbox primer are in every box I will be disappointed since I will be tossing those two products.

    Who still uses those kind of eye makeup removers (instead of cleansing oils) and that first generation Smashbox primer (when they have come out with the spray on mist version)?

    Why is there is also only ONE makeup product in this box, the eyeliner? This one is like the $10 level version of the Beautyfix box.

    • I agree about the Smashbox primer — I’m on total overload with primers generally and this one specifically. But as to this one specifically . . . aren’t these boxes supposed to be “discovery” boxes? Is there anyone who hasn’t “discovered” this particular primer yet? Seriously? It’s not even close to being new (they have other new primers that would be good to sample) and I’ve received sooooo many samples of this recently.

  10. I feel like everyone is putting the smash box primer in their subscription box, it was in boxy charm this month too or last month.

    also not to excited for the Makeup Forever eyeliner :/

    I hope its not in the 583 box!

    I really want the Fresh nectar mask or the Truth serum from Ole Hendrickson 🙂

  11. I guess smashbox is trying to get rid their inventory, I keep seeing the photo finish primers at Marshalls

    • for how much at marshalls?

      • I saw it for $12.99

      • not bad if they’re full sized. thanks 🙂

  12. Ugh! As soon as I opened these spoilers and saw the Peter Thomas Roth water drench I knew this would be my disappointing box. Sephora loves sending me “water” themed creams. This being my 3rd or 4th. Enough Sephora. I am fed up with you shoving these creams down my throat. Not to mention my total hatred of daisy perfume. I have a serious disdain for the scent. Couple that with yet another boring smash box primer and black eyeliner, this may be my worse Sephora box to date. I’ve loved you since the beginning play. I’m one of your biggest fans, but there is no excusing this terrible box.

  13. Not impressed. But then I just got my Ipsy today & absolutely love everything, even the bag!

    • I’m the opposite.. not loving my ipsy bag this month 🙁

  14. I’m 583 too, seems like there’s a lot of us! Play by Sephora has always been the only subscription box that’s ‘worth it’ in my opinion- the products are always from high end or at least widely recognizable brands, whereas other subscription boxes often have a higher literal value $$ but it doesn’t feel like it to me because they don’t have trendy, currently relevant brands. That’s why I never felt like the Play box was a gimmick- they weren’t including random off-brand products, I was getting things I already loved, or things beauty youtubers talk about, or cult favorites, etc. I never found myself questioning their priorities, BUT the last 2 or 3 months have been giving me that feeling like….are they just trying to get rid of products? Are they trying to introduce their customers to brands they may love or did they decide that they can make more $$$$$bank$$$$ sending older, boring products. Am I being played here? But with that said, I sold my soul to Sephora years ago haha and will probably never unsubscribe…hopefully they receive the message that we’re not happy and step it back up!

    (P.S. maybe it’s just me, but I feel like it’s insensitive to comment about how much you hate this box and how bad it is and how relieved you are it’s not your box- if you’re not the one receiving it…there’s just always a nice way to say the same thing you know.) <3

    I left Ipsy because of too many eyeliners and primers. Even my Target box is better than this. And it was only $7.

  16. Another SMASHBOX photo finish primer?! *sigh* I’m sure with all the samples I have now, they equal to 2 full ones…

  17. Does anybody else’s boxes show that they’ve been shipped yet? Mine still says “processing”.

    • This is my box, and i recieved it today! No tracking number, email, or anything. Must be a slow update system, but makes for a nice surprise. 🙂

  18. I’m box 591, but I’m a little sad because I really wanted to try that Peter Thomas Roth product because I love all that I own so far.Im hoping its in my box too .That said this is a very sad little box ,good thing I like to try new products !

  19. I have 516 I think. I hate all smash ic products especially the silicone primers. THEE best primer on earth is by Stila. It is also the best color correcter. I cancelled this sub after this month. Product overload and burnout on subs. Cancelled them all to consider new ones.

  20. getting #575. I have oily skin and I have been getting the play box for over a year now and I don’t understand why recently it seems that Sephora is completely ignoring our profiles. In the beginning it was great because I never got anything that seemed out of place but in the last 5 months or so every box there is something that is definitely not for someone with oily skin. It’s getting frustrating.

  21. I’m not happy to be getting the cloud cream. It’s way too heavy for my skin :/ I’ve tried it before.

  22. I would be pissed if this was my box. I’m 583.

  23. Won’t everyone be getting the makeup remover, primer and eyeliner? Then the 2 other +perfume products will be what changes? I didn’t think everything changed.

  24. Wow, what a bummer of a box IMO! I’m #583, so, glad I didn’t get this one but scared about what I will get! NO to the Smashbox primer, don’t really want the eye makeup remover, won’t use the eyeliner, not interested in Daisy, have had ExfoliKate a million times. Please don’t let me down Sephora!

  25. when I saw the black eyeliner as a spoiler I signed up yesterday on 4-10 hoping I would get it. I would love the smashbox primer too. sadly my next bill date is in may so I guess I won’t be getting an april box. oh well, I hope that may’s boxes will be good ones.

  26. This is my box too, not happy at all. I really try to stay away from the *cone ingredients, but it just seems impossible these days…’s even in the PTR cream which I was excited to try until I read the ingredient list ughhhhhh.

  27. Glad this isn’t my box. I am getting 591. Hopefully will be better than last month.

  28. Well, if this is my box I’m canceling. I never want to see another smashbox reg primer. I have several and it doesn’t work at all for me. This box and last month are pretty disappointing so I’ll prob drop and try something else.

  29. This is perfect. I love primers and have been wanting to try the smashbox one before buying a full size. Also was hoping for the cloud cream! I’ve never been disappointed by my play box, for $10, it’s perfect❤

    • If you like primer the best on the market is by Stila. Pricey yes, but it was recently 50 percent off at Ulta making it like $14

  30. I am in my 40s, so these samples appeal to me (except for the Daisy perfume). Perhaps Sephora should take a cue from Walmart and create a box that appeals to various age groups (i.e., less face care, more makeup samples).

  31. Not again… This is the second month in a row I’ve gotten a Play box version that I really didn’t like. Why in the world would they be giving us these Smashbox primers again…and the makeup remover. The only thing I’m looking forward to is the PTR Cloud cream because I’ve used it and I know it’s good. The other items are such a disappointment.

  32. Am I the only one getting box 152?? I haven’t seen that number… Hope it’s better than this box because this is the last chance I give to Sephora Play.

    • Are you sure you are looking at the item number and not the order #. The item # is 7 digits and can only be seen when clicking the order # on the desktop version of their site.

      • I was looking the order # and not the item #
        I’mbox #609
        Thank you!!!

  33. This is what I always write upon almost every box. Nothing NEW! I want to see new Brands, new items, new releases, new formula items!!! etc etc…. Not their leftovers!! Sephora, do you read any of the reviews?

  34. I’d be happy with this box, but I’m #583. 🙂

  35. Smashbox primer YES PLEASE.

    I’m 591 this time.

  36. I happen to adore Daisy, so I hope its in 609 too (or that I find a couple of people to swap with for some of my other fragrances.)

  37. Darn! That’s my box and I already own most of those products except the cloud cream and the eyeliner but I have a gazillion black eyeliners and I don’t use pencil eyeliners anyways. I am so bummed. This is the 2nd or third box in a row where I already owned most of the full size versions. I don’t want to cancel but they are just not sending enough new stuff out. At least if the eyeliner was a fun color it would make it worth it but come on boring black. Sorry just needed to vent this morning. 🙂

  38. This is my box and I am thrilled. Getting the cloud cream is a win for me and everything else is an added bonus!!
