  1. I’m getting bpx #015. I’m dry skin, med complexion, dark brown hair. And I’ve read many things that say Glam Glow is terrible for dry skin. Does Sephora really match the items to our profile? When Ipsy first started out, they were terrible at it. They got much better though.

  2. 093 Medium, Dry, Aging, Brunette. Hoping for a good moisturizer!

  3. I think this is my last month for both Sephora and Birchbox. After getting my 1st allure box last month, im underwhelmed by products too similar in the same box (how many primers and highlighters do i need or want) and half-empty samples.

    • They sure are half empty samples! Sure, it’s only $10 a month. Doesn’t mean we should be getting ripped off. I hear glossy box or something like that is good. There are plenty pf deserving monthly boxes out there.

      • Be careful with Glossybox. People are having all kinds of issues with them. I am one of them. From it taking taking two weeks for my box to be delivered (it sat 2hrs away from my house for a 1.5 before it moved) to charging you after you turn off auto-renew. I called customer service and they said it SHOULD refund me in 5-10 business days. I will say I was really happy with Decembers box when I got it. If they fixed customer service I think it would be a good subscription service.

  4. What’s with all the Boxycharm ads. I understand so people prefer one to another but basically all boxes are the same products at different times.

    • Agreed. It’s weird.

  5. GlamGlow products tend to dry me out a bit, but after reading the description this sounds like it would be good to use a few times a week rather every day. I’ll give it a go if it’s in my box.

  6. I’m getting #101box. Hope it will be a good one and GLAMGLOW free. I resubscribe Play after several months with Birchbox and I hope the first box will be based on the profile I entered…

  7. Glam Glow breaks me out something fierce!! Def passing that along. This may be my last month bc I find myself only keeping 1, maybe 2, of the items I get. I also have BoxyCharm and although they have better and full size products, lately I’ve been giving away most of those as well. I don’t think subscription boxes are for me anymore bc I’m so picky about products.

    • I cancelled Sephora and Birchbox and went the Cult Crushes box. It’s different from any of the other $10 boxes (it’s $11), but it’s realky neat and fun! A few months ago we got a mini hair straightener and an actual Z palette!

  8. This will be my first box. Since I subscribed ONE day late (the 5th), last month.
    It says I’m getting box #577. I wouldn’t be getting last months box right?

    • Seeing that #577 was one of last months variations

  9. My box is 077. I almost cancelled after last month. This may be the last one for me if it is not a whole lot better than what I have been getting. Boxycharm is the best subscription box imo.

    • How is Boxycharm for cruelty-free products? That’s one thing that really disappoints me about the Sephora box, nearly all the products I receive are from companies that test on animals and I would never buy them!

      • Boxycharm is waaaay better. I end up giving away 1 item per month tops because its not CF.

        I cancelled Play! because I ended up giving everything away. (STOP with the Makeup Forever, damnit!)

  10. I’ll be getting box #036

    • I cancelled last month and this confirmed my decision. I’ve been so underwhelmed by the “deluxe” sample sized products and Boxy Charm is so much better. I understand the gist that its trying premium/high end products but getting products like Becca and CoverFX in Boxycharm makes me feel like Sephora is definitely dropping the ball and just giving us old, leftover point perks and perfume samples. You can go to Macy’s and get that size perfume samples for FREE. If they were luxury brands, that may have been worth it but not for regular stuff like Sephora brand, laura mercier and fresh.

    • Yeah me too.

  11. I think on reddit it said everyone would get this item. My box is 028 and I have oily skin so boxes must be based off something else? Lole the theme New You Year maybe more skin care products?

    Happy to resubscribe and try this product but a little nervous. Reviews either love or feel attacked by this stuff!

    • Love** the theme Happy You Year. So tired lol

    • They said last month we’d all be getting the eye shadow stick. it was only in half the boxes.

      • Actually last month there wasn’t really a guaranteed item. Most people though got an eye product like the shadow duo, liner, shadow stick, mascara. I do hope this month there is a newer makeup product.

    • Yeah definitely something else because I am getting box 028 too and my skin is very dry & sensitive.

    • I’m 028 also. Oily skin. Hope it’s a good box 🦄 Actually have been lately.

  12. I’m getting box 085. I really hope I don’t get the GlamGlow. Or is that in every box this month, do you know, Liz? If I get it, it will wind up in my gifting box.

    • I’m getting box 085 too!

  13. As long as I don’t get a red lipstick this month, I’m ok. I received one in October and December. :/

    • Amen! I can’t get away from reds in all of my subscription boxes lol. I keep like 2 in my whole collection that are regular lipsticks and just barely blot some on so my lips look flush. Because I can’t pull off a bold red lip. I hope they don’t send them either!

      • I get all the nudes and cant stand them….i WISH sub boxes would send the reds my way

    • I never get reds and I love them.

      If it’s pink or nude, sure!

      I’ve about had it with Play! about that.

  14. My last 3 #’s are 101. Is my box different?

  15. My box is 044 this month. I love foaming cleansers because they work best with my Clarisonic. If this isn’t for dry skin, it’s going to be a bust for me.

    • 044 here as well. Fair, redhead, dry skin, concerns with aging and pigmentation and redness, oily braid needs more volume is my profile stufff. 34.

    • I got 044 to what’s ur profile, mine is combination , light com, blonde hair.

    • #044 here as well. Light, blonde/blue, dry skin, fine, wavy, dry hair. Redness, hyperpigmenation and uneven skin tone. Maybe we won’t get this because we all have dry skin in common.

    • I got 044 too!! But im oily, olive skin, dark brown hair!?

    • Another 044 here.

      Red hair, fair combination skin, aging/redness concern.

      And I get remarkably few products that address that.

  16. It’s awfully small…

    • It is but you usually only need a little cleanser at a time so it should last a decent amount of time.

  17. idk. Something about GlamGlow literally burns me.

  18. I hope I get this. I need a good box this month!

  19. Yessssss I love Glamglow products.

  20. I’m box #028 this month. I hope I don’t get any glamglow. I have extremely dry skin and Glamglow products all make my skin more dry, even the ones that are supposed to moisturize.

    • Yep. GlamGlow = ick for me.

    • Well if I am correct I am box 028 as well. This is my first box with them so not sure. It’s the last three digits of the item number?

      • Yep. 🙂

      • My last 3 #’s are 101. Is my box different?

        • There are always many variations of the boxes. Keep and eye out for your box specific spoilers

    • I’m getting the same box, I would be surprised if they put this in our box! This is not for dry skin. I don’t like their products anyway

      • I have box 028 as well and I have combination skin.

        • I’m getting box 28 too, and I have comb skin too

    • Same! I actually loved the Thirstycleanse but I don’t even think they sell that anymore. Every other cleanser I’ve tried is so so stripping and drying 🙁

    • Ditto on my box number and yours, and also the reaction to Glamglow.
      I cannot tolerate any of their products, sadly. They burn and I turn red as a beet. Dry, sensitive skin also. ( And old as can be- in my 50’s which is embarrassing but the sands of the hourglass only move one way).

      Hoping Box o28 is GlamGlow free for those of us with very sensitive dry skin.

      Mandy G.

      • And old as can be- in my 50’s which is embarrassing – WHY – you should be proud of your age, I am!

  21. Great I’ve been wanting to try this and actually was going to try to swap for it. Glad that I saw this spoiler and that I will be getting one of these in my box
