We have a new exclusive spoiler for the July Play! By Sephora box just for MSA readers!

Here is another one of the items being sampled this month:

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter – 5 ml Value $4

This face cream is rich, moisturizing, and still absorbs pretty quickly!

And in case you missed it here is another item being sampled this month:

Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil – 5 ml Value $11.33

This oil is light, absorbs quickly, and feels fabulous on my skin. A+!

All subscribers will receive one of these four skincare items:

Here’s another item that is being sampled this month:

FRESH Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment – 2.2 g Value $13.30

This lip treatment goes on sheer with just a tint of pink (not really worthy of a swatch), with a healthy shine, and lots of moisture – I love it! (It’s a great sized sample, too! A little over half the size of the full-size version!)

And I’ve confirmed from Sephora, this item will be in 40% off the boxes!

And, for July, ALL subscribers will receive:

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty – 1.5 g Value $7.77

I love tarte and I love their blush, so this is a stellar subscription box item for me! The formula is ingredient conscious and goes on so smoothly. It has a matte finish, and you can easily build color. (Plus there’s no fallout with this powder, and it stays put once it’s applied!)

Here it is swatched:

What do you think of the latest spoiler? 

(FYI – if you sign up for Play! by Sephora now, the July box will be your first box!)

  1. The Tarte blush we are all getting is the exact same shade that was in Sephora’s birthday gift set in 2017. Yay for something new! 🙁

  2. I wish they’d stop sending face oils. My face is super oily already.

  3. I’ve not been thrilled with my boxes lately anyway. So if they continue to block us from the box numbers knowing how much we love them, I will be cancelling. They are getting worse, not better re: the treatment of their customers.

    For those commenting about not liking this, but what can we do? We can cancel…that’s what. Maybe a mass cancellation by hundreds or more of us at once will wake them up.

    Shipping has been ridiculously late too. Take my money on the first, I get the box the last week of the month. Now there’s nothing to look forward to either by not knowing what’s in it. Yep, definitely skating on thin ice with me.

    • I cancelled after last month’s Box. Got tired of repeated, I miss not getting a fragrance every month. And last month or the month before, it showed 3 items and said we’d get 1 of them. I got all 3. My box was definitely worth less than other boxes. So I just cancelled. Loved it when I started, now I give away more than I keep.

      • Maybe I’m the weirdo here, but I like getting the shampoo instead of perfume. I don’t like very many scents so that’s likely why.

      • Hi Melissa…I haven’t been getting many repeats yet, but getting way too many hair care products in my boxes. My May box had 3 hair care items in it when the spoilers and their You Tube channel showed so many other great products. It seems I get the bottom of the barrel stuff. I had hoped we would get mostly skin care and makeup products, not mostly stuff for hair. I like getting it once in awhile, but not have one box with so much of it. Guess I’ll wait and see what shows up this month to decide if I”m going to cancel. If it gets here as late as last month, I’ll have about 4 days to cancel before they bill me again.

        I’m beginning to think it might be worth cancelling Play and Ipsy, add a dollar to it and get 2 Boxycharm boxes each month ! ! ! !

  4. I usually find out what I am getting by looking at my account after Sephora releases their monthly spoiler video. Its usually around the 15th to the 20th.

  5. Well, my july boxycharm is 80% junk. My July ipsy is also 80% crap. I mean they sent me items from 2 categories I didn’t even check off as being interested in! Ugh! So why should Play be any different? I bet I don’t get the Sugar lip thing and I do get things I’ve already tried before in different kits. July is totally not my month lolol.
    Btw I’m getting box # 160. Is everyone getting the same box #?

    • I’m getting #160 too.

  6. Hoping for the Farmacy, drunk elephant, and josie maran , didn’t get the josie maran in ipsy so c’mon sephora play! This is a great box month for me so far, it’s birthday month luck and I get my sephora birthday gift too 😄

  7. No regrets on cancelling after last months box.
    I would’ve liked to get the Protini cream or Liquid Collagen but I probably would have ended up with the Tarte cleanser or Honey Drop moisturizer – which, for the record, are fine products but been there done that 100x.

  8. Just a guess, but I wonder if this is one variation of a box that’s being spoiled item by item…. like maybe they gave Liz her box early, and they told her to only spoil one item at a time on a given date. How close am I Liz? ;P 😀

    • Shoot, I hope so because I usually get the same box she does and I want it all!!

      • I am with you on it completely 🙂

      • Haha! It is a great looking box! 😀

  9. Liz, did Sephora confirm if we will be able to get July box if we sub before July 10th ? Thanks.

    • I was told in an email today that in order to get July’s box you would have had to subscribe before their billing cycle which is between the 1st & 4th.

      • Thank you!
        I subbed on the 4th but wasn’t billed and on app it shows my next billing cycle will be in August. I guess they don’t even know themselves what are they doing 🙂

        • Just fyi, same thing happened to me. Thought I wasn’t getting current month’s box last month, app said next billing would be following month, well they randomly billed me 2 weeks later, so I did get the month I resubscribed for.

          • Same. Also, they sent me a different number box than they said I was getting.

          • I wonder if it depends on how many active subscriptions they have going. If they still have spots available maybe that’s when they send out the box even if you subscribe late but don’t wanna promise anything in case they run out? I re-subscribed during the 2nd week of May and received the May box so there is hope yet for late subscribers.

          • So when we sign up, they don’t bill us rite away? Or do they?
            Thank you

    • We have confirmed with the PLAY by SEPHORA team that signing up before July 10th will allow you receive the July box. The internal communication to the customer service agents about this update was delayed, which is why some people were getting an incorrect response. The PLAY team apologizes for the confusion!

      Hope that helps!

  10. Dang, they are sending out items that are coming in this months Ipsy bag. I am already getting the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter in my glam bag. Fingers crossed I don’t get it again from Play. The tarte blush is a huge repeat so many for sale on the makeup facebook pages cheap.

    • Not so much of a repeat for Sephora, though. I have not received a Tarte blush in 2 years. If you have multiple subscriptions boxes, you are probably getting repeats from other companies.

    • I have actually noticed that a lot of sub boxes send close to the same thing each month. It’s like they Copy one another. I get 4 different sub boxes each month and for example if one box sends out a cleanser I can just about guarantee that my other boxes will have a cleanser in it as well. How about you girls??

  11. Okay, so a totally unspoiled box arriving on my doorstep is going to make me soooo anxious! I’ll know one thing in it this month? Eek! Play!, you’re killin’ me with this! Lol

    • I’m not loving it but what can we do 🤷🏻‍♀️😅 Spoilers are half the fun for me!

  12. Where are the full spoilers for each box number?

    • They won’t release the spoilers to anyone! I just asked again and they said would not tell me what is in my box

      • How rude Sephora!!

      • Probably because so many people complained about getting repeats or seeing that other boxes were way better lolll

    • None have been posted on MSA yet.
