  1. I love that the Briogeo heat protectant creme protects to 450 degrees F.! So you may be burnt to a crisp but your hair will look mah-velous!

  2. Has anyone else’s box been sitting for almost a week without shipping? My label was created on 7/11 and has yet to move.

  3. I see alot of ppl would swap. I have alot of stuff to swap. I have 2 drunk elephant I would swap. But I dont have fb r anything . Liz will I ever be able to sign in to the swap on here? Thanks

  4. Anyone have info for box#194

  5. Fingers crossed for the Drunk Elephant. I took a year-long break from all my boxes, made a big dent on my stash and discovered new holy grails. Looking forward to Play! I loved most of the products they sent.

  6. I would have loved to get the Fresh lip balm, and Kora oil, like in Liz’s box, and also the Bite Beauty lip mask, but I am finally pleased with box #152 because of the Algenist, Korres, and Tarte, and decent looking sizes for this month. Woohoo. 🙂

  7. mine is coming today…s.p. Box 152, yea, i’m a happy woman…

  8. I’m getting box #152 and I’m so happy with everything in my box!!! Idk why, but I seem to get lucky with all of my subs! I always seem to get the variant that I want. Lets hope it stays that way lol

    • That’s awesome! Good luck! 🙂 I’m excited to try the Algenist serum at least! And I’m pretty happy with Allure this month too!

  9. Mine’s 202, haven’t seen a thing about it yet. I’m always the last to know.

    • I’m dying to know #202 too!!

    • Same! Been waiting for it to be released. I think mine comes tom

  10. Finally Sephora play what took so long box152. Happy……

  11. I’m getting #152 and am so pleased! The last couple of boxes were meh for me. I changed my profile and am so happy to have products I will actually use. 🙂

  12. I’m getting 581, it’s ok, I really really wish I was getting 210

    • 581 is the best for skincare products. Give them a try I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised

  13. Towards the top of this page Liz gives detailed instructions on how to know which bag you will receive hope this helps

  14. Anyone know what box 178 items have?

    • This was posted a day or two ago.

      Box #178 was going to include:

      Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream (Sku 2103141)
      TarteRainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Make Up Removing Cleansing Gel (Sku 2103109)
      Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty Paaarty (Sku 2103117)
      Tarte Rainforest of the Sea color splash hydrating lipstick in Salt Lyfe (Sku 2103125)
      Boscia Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask Packette (Sku 2104214)

      • Awesome Thank you!!

  15. If I order today, will I get the July box or will my first box be August? Thank you…

    • The August box

  16. Did something change this month? Are we all getting six products and no samples (perfume, shampoo packets)?

    If so, that’s cool with me!

    • I think the hair product will probably be a foil packet, maybe? I’ve received these in the past instead of the perfume sample

      • Yeah, you are probably right! All the hair products.. I’m okay with that. I prefer those to perfume…

  17. Being a Play subscriber for over 2 years, I have only gotten one box that seriously underwhelmed me (I think the majority of us felt that way in May 2018!) Box 228 here, and I am happy with this one. I already use the Deep Dive cleanser, and actually like it. Tarte lippies are the bomb- even if it doesn’t have a ton of color, they are so moisturizing and great to use over a darker color. Ironically, Tarte’s Paaarty is my blush, and I was contemplating buying more since I am running low, so thanks Sephora! I also am running low on my Caudalie toner, so even better. (Kind of weird that my box contains 4 of 6 items I already use, but I have drawers full of stuff from previous Play boxes that I was not a huge fan of- along with probably 10 liquid eyeliners… LOL… so at least I will use it!) ‘Looking forward to trying the Josie Maran face butter (despite it being Summer, my face is dryer than usual!), and the Rahua hair mask (the pool is frying my hair). I do think it would be cool, though, if Sephora let the subscribers have a month where the subscribers vote on what products go into the boxes for the different categories.

  18. I have box 228 and I’m really bummed that there are 3 tarte products , to have the 3 of the same brand isn’t exciting at all…this is my least favorite box lol go figure …plus I’m worried to use that Josie Marin face cream on my OILY skin lol

    • I agree. Weird that Sephora would put 3 of the same brand in one box. I like Tarte products, but half the fun is in product diversity. This must have been the last box planned and they were left with an excess of Tarte stuff.

      • I can’t even find info on the Tarte Deep Dive Cleansing Gel on Sephoras website.
        Is it a problem just for me or have they stopped selling it?

  19. I feel like 228 would be a great box… for someone else. I am so sick of receiving lipsticks.. and I have no interest in a tarte cleanser. While others are getting drunk elephant.. at least I get to try that caudalie product. Sigh.

    • I agree with you! I’m getting that box and I feel like all the boxes I get are the worst ..I would love to have gotten that drunk Elephant

  20. So if 152 is the last 3 digits of my order number does that mean that’s what I’m getting?

    • No. Check the last three digits of the ITEM number. The order number is irrelevant.

    • Towards the top of this page Liz gives detailed instructions on how to know which bag you will receive hope this helps

  21. I feel like the best variations this month are boxes 160, 152 and 581. But that’s just based off of my extremely dry skin lol.

  22. Ugh! Of all the combinations of products, I get the worst one (#152). I would prefer every single other box to mine! Whine, whine, whine. 🙂

    • I think 152 looks great! I have 178.

      • I’ve got box 178 as well! I’m ok with it. Love tarte good thing to because I believe there’s three different tarte products.

    • I have 152 and am a little bummed too, lol. oh, well…

    • Really? I love 152! What don’t you like about this one?

      • It’s not really a big deal, it’s just that my skin hates both vitamin c and rose (they make me break out), I never wear lipstick, I don’t blow dry my hair. I tried a probiotic cream once (not this brand though, I admit) but it was so gross that it made me never want to try probiotics in skincare again! Lol. On the other hand, my skin loves glycolic acid, Drunk Elephant is a brand I love, I constantly use lip balm, that agave mask is my HG, tried a sample of the Noni oil in Sephora once and LOVED it! So I was hoping for some of the other stuff in the spoilers. Like I said, no big deal. I’ll give the stuff I don’t want to my sisters and friends, and better luck next time! 🙂

        • I completely understand! That’s how it was for me last month.. lots of products I either tried already and didn’t like or ones I had no interest in

          • Haha, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose! 🙂

      • For me it’s that there were several items I would’ve preferred to what I got: I REALLY wanted the Josie Maran, I also would’ve been excited about the Drunk Elephant, the Bite lip mask, the Sugar lip balm, the Caudalie, and the REN. I’m not sure if the Algenist is like a serum, but that would be nice so hopefully it is. I like to have heavier moisturizers than gel creams, so I’m not pumped about the Biossance, and I’ve already gotten the Briogeo blow-dry cream (maybe in a different sub?). The lipstick could be good, I just hope it’s not too pale.

  23. Box 236 anyone? It remains a mystery to me. I cancelled in June but resubbed for July when I saw it was a natural skincare themed box (bag).

    • Box twin! Someone help us 😅

      • Me too! 236 please let us see.

        • Same!

    • No spoilers yet for 236? OMG, I’m dying here! Lol

      • Are y’all new/returning subscrubers? I’m new

        • I’m an old subscriber

  24. I’m getting box 210. I’m sooo disappointed. I really wanted something other than the Tarte cleanser. Hopefully I can swap it for the farmacy. I’d even add something else, just not the That’s actually the only thing I like. So sad 😞 this month with mine.

  25. I’m getting 186. Anyone else? I ordered July 9, I hope they don’t send me a weird box because I’m a late subscriber.

    • I’ve been a subscribed for years, and I’m also getting 186. Not sure what’s in it though.

    • I’ve been a subscriber off and on for over a year and I’m receiving box 186 as well. I will say, I have liked every box that I received from Sephora and every month I always see alot of people commenting that they wish they had the box that I’m receiving. So, I’m hoping that this one follows the pattern 😉

      • I’m 186, too! Trolling everywhere for spoilers 😩🤣

        • I’m getting box #186 too. Haven’t found what items come in it!

  26. I’m confused. An earlier post shows #076 but this post shows the same products for #152. which is one is correct? I’m getting 152.

    • That was my fault! I accidentally gave the last three digits of my order number instead of the item number! Sorry for the confusion! 🙁

    • Do we know what is in #152 yet? I’m dying to know 🙂

      • womp womp I see what is in #152 now. Bummer, the only thing I really wanted was the fresh product.

  27. Everybox but mine (152) had the one thing I want to try the most….The Caudalie Essence

  28. This month appears to be a bit of a dud for me (box #152). I really dislike that lipstick, mostly due to the taste/smell of it, and I’m pretty sure I already have it in that exact shade (or close to it) from a previous Play box. I don’t blow dry my hair, so the hair product is already a bust. The face oil and moisturizer don’t particularly turn me on, as I’m SUPER picky about both.

    I’ve tried the Algenist collagen, though, and I liked it, so I know I’ll use that, at least. Ditto regarding the blush, even though I already have a ton of tarte blush. It might be that I’m starting to get selective in my beauty product purchases and I’ve just already tried so much and know what I like or don’t… It might be time for me to drop this one.

  29. What happened to the fresh sugar lip being in 40 percent of the boxes?

    • I was thinking the same thing!

    • Exactly! I was wondering that as well. Even the post that said it is missing…

    • Exactly!

  30. I wish I got box #581! I changed my PLAY! profile around a bit for next month, hopefully I will get more of what I wished for next month. However, lets face it, there were no “bad boxes” this month, the sampled products were all great.

    • I’m getting #152 and I agree that there really isn’t a bad box this month. I would have been happy with any of them. This month was kind of a probationary month for me with Sephora, I had not been completely happy with my boxes so I decided to give them this month to get it together. So all in all, I’m good with my box.

      • I’m getting 152 as well – looks like a great box… I had been getting tired of Play lately also, but I’m happy with this collection, so we’ll see what happens next month.

  31. Has anyone gotten #178?

    • I have #178 but have not receive it. would love to see what is inside it someone knows 🙂

    • I was wondering the same thing.
      Profile: Fair/dry/sensitive skin, clean beauty = top priority, dry/fine/wavy hair 🙋‍♀️ 😉

      • I ‘m medium, dry skin, dry fine hair

        • I was hesitant to resub (after getting a number of boxes that weren’t great for me), but seeing the spoilers sold me this month. I get that the idea of the sub is to Play, but it’s still nice to do it in a way that works for you. Knowing someone with a similar profile is getting the same one gives me hope I’ll enjoy it again 😊🙌

    • That’s my number too and I’m dying to know! I canceled this sub a while back because I wasn’t happy with the items I was getting. But once I saw the spoilers for this month I decided to tweak my profile and give them another chance. Fingers crossed!

    • Thats mine too! I hope we aren’t getting the Tarte rainforest cleanser. It breaks me out.

    • This was posted a day or two ago…

      Box #178 was going to include:

      Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream (Sku 2103141)
      TarteRainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Make Up Removing Cleansing Gel (Sku 2103109)
      Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty Paaarty (Sku 2103117)
      Tarte Rainforest of the Sea color splash hydrating lipstick in Salt Lyfe (Sku 2103125)
      Boscia Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask Packette (Sku 2104214)

      • Thanks! It’s hard to keep up with updates sometimes 😉
