  1. I saw these spoilers right after canceling, and I really love/am curious about some of these items (Caudalie, Saturday Skin, Estee Lauder). I’m still not subscribing again, since my box would probably be full of things I don’t like. Glad to take a month off and subscribe to Allure, or other boxes, in the future.

  2. I really hope I get the Bite beauty lipstick!

  3. This made me re-subscribe! I have been wanting to try the double wear and I love Bite. Worth the $10 for me just for that!

  4. I’m super excited about February! It’s been a very long time since I truly enjoyed more than 1-2 items, I would love to get all but maybe 1 or 2 things. Go Sephora!

  5. Yeah I’m about to stop also. Last month was just sad!! My primer had enough for half of my nose( I dont have a big nose either). Also I have already owned it and moved on away from primers that have fragrance in them. I’m acne prone also. Does anyone get a good mouthly box of good skincare/ makeup r just sometimes makeup bc I dont wear make up much. I have never got anything they say I’m going to get, I called one time and she said so do u want to cancel, so I wont be ever calling back. I feel like I’m just paying 10bucks to get 50 points that I forget to add… so a new box would be great if anyone knows another.. I get allure. I love my ipsy glam box. Oh yeah and fabfitfun. I probably dont need another lol bc all the sells that fff has been having they r really close together, maybe bc it takes a month to get my stuff sometimes longer…

    • try the beauty fix box great skin care and other useful items you’d never buy but truly can use its owned by the dermstore

  6. I have already gotten blur stick and it sucks. Come on Sephora

  7. Maybe if you’re a new-ish subscriber, these items will thrill you. But a lot of this is repeats of past Play months and stuff that’s been out for quite a while. I didn’t sub to try something that’s 10+ years old. I was hoping for newer products fresh to market and makeup not made in China. I only got the latter, and not even much of that to boot. We had a good run, Play, but when the rebranding your CS person said was happening didn’t materialize, I had to make the decision to cancel. Thanks for posting the spoilers, MSA- you made the decision much easier! Onto Allure!

    • Dia, I agree with you. I loved my Play boxes for the first 6 months but now when I compare to ipsy GBP and Allure, the tiny sample sizes and products that have been out for ages simply dont compete. I enjoyed play as one of my first intros into the sub box world, but I think I will be cancelling and sticking with my GBP and allure boxes.

  8. Clinique again???? I quit that line after high school. :/

  9. I haven’t even received my January yet.

    • Neither have I. At least they finally shipped it, estimated arrival is February LOL

      Curious if I will get what the spoiler says I will, or what their email states.

  10. If I had the chance to pick this is what I’d want: wander beauty, makeup remover, Milk blur stick, watermelon glow, Saturday skin, no preference with the perfume any one would be fine.

    This is what I’ll probably receive: super dark lipstick, eyeliner, foundation, fresh rose face mask, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, and probably a foil packet of shampoo.

    I hope that I get at least the gold eye mask and the blur stick.

  11. I cancelled. Moving on. Thank you, next.

  12. Only problem is, their system is kind of random.

    I got one of the holiday boxes as a gift with purchase.

    Even at free, it was a waste.

  13. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me! Not.being.baited lol

    • I’m with you Missann. Lol. I am not going to let this spoiler pull me back in. I keep reminding myself the products I would like to receive are not what I am going to get.

      • I just have too much of everything so now I’m down to only glossy box, allure and target boxes when they suit me. I realized I was giving more away than was keeping. Now I’m on a good budget and can afford to splurge on nice candles I’ve been wanting instead. For me, subbing too many boxes is a waste of money. I would rather buy what I really want. I don’t need an unboxing experience to feel high. We have better stuff here in Colorado for that purpose. Wink wink.

        • So agree!! I started a year long no buy and it has caused me to really rethink sub boxes and the wastefulness, for me. Paying money to be “surprised” and maybe liking 1 or 2 of the items seems silly. I would rather buy what I want and not get stuck with a bunch of stuff I don’t. I have sooo much that I won’t be buying anything unless I run out of that category, this year and trust me when I say there is little danger of that.

        • Hahahaha Missann. Unfortunately for me I am not in Colorado or any legalized state for that matter. Lol. But I get it….after I cancelled Sephora I signed up for a monthly candle sub which I am very happy with. It’s all about the little things in life….. ; )

          • Oh sweet, which candle sub? I’ve been eyeing Lumine candles online. Being sick, I’m all about the comfort things and scented candles and a bath do wonders for me.

        • I subbed to a Cratejoy vendor, The Sun Garden. Initially it started as a gift for my mom for Christmas. Due to her having COPD, alot of candles cause her to cough excessively. So we are always looking for ones that dont so I gave this company a try. She was so happy with the scents (they do not affect her negatively) that I decided to send myself a box. I was very happy with the first box I received. I am on month two and we will see how it goes. I will receive my next box around the 10th of February. : )

          • Good to know about the candles. I also have copd and I’m bothered by some particular scents, patchouli for one. I like citrus but not other food smells, and love most florals but not lavender, this but not that. Lol Best to you and your mom.

  14. I’m surprised by the early spoilers this month! That lip color is gorgeous. I have way too many lippies but that color is amazing!

    • Probably trying to lure back people who were put off by the mushroom latte last month!

  15. I still haven’t received my January box. After seeing the spoilers I am glad I cancelled and subscribed to Beautyfix.

    • Four out of the six things Sephora is still insisting are my beauty samples to be included in my belatedly shipped box #261 were subbed with other things. And yes, I got that supremely awful mushroom latte broth evil potion. No Drunk Elephant, no Belif, no Sunday R. Lactic Acid Treatment, or Marajo hair packets. That Marajo hair butter stuff is fantastic! I’ll still try it all (well, except for the mushroom mess). I really shouldn’t complain about getting samples delivered to my door for only ten bucks a month, but there just seems something really off about dangling shiny, happy, You Have To Try THIS in front of customers, and then sending sad little blister packs and tea sachets instead. AND extra late with no explanation, or mea culpa.

      • My spoilers had the Sunday Riley, Drunk Elephant, etc., too, but when my bag arrived, it was totally different–all old repeats that I have a million of (Clinique Black honey, Origins GinZing eye stuff, etc.), so I called them and asked for the correct bag. They supposedly reshipped me the right one, but I’m still waiting for it, so we’ll see. But, yeah, like someone else said, not being baited anymore. My bags have all been consistently disappointing.

      • Same for me!! I got that mushroom/diaper genie runoff drink and two pieces left over from the birthday gifts last year after getting the same spoiler you got.

    • I did the same exact thing. Had Play for over 6 mos.. cancelled. Resubscribed and cancelled again 2 daya ago for the Fix. I think we made the right move!

  16. I have been wanting to cancel for a while now … If I don’t get that watermelon glow sleeping mask and the milk blur stick…I’m done. I have never used much of anything I have received from play! Even when I order and want samples they send me crap that isn’t what I chose. I get enough of that in the bag. 🤔

  17. I used to buy all my beauty products from Sephora but now there are so many other great places. Sephora has been disappointing.

    • They’ve gotten arrogant and sloppy. I’m buying more from Ulta.

  18. I canceled my Play subscription a while back. So these spoilers look really good to me, lol.

    Though I did get the Caudalie duo as a birthday gift, & wasn’t impressed.

  19. I wonder how many cancellations they had last month that they’re already releasing next month’s spoilers to try and lure us back.

    • Exactly my thought when I saw this post!

    • Good point. I cancelled last month after the whole reveal fiasco. I’m Marie Kondo’ing my stash so these full spoilers (while nice of Refinery29 to give us) are not enough to lure me back in.

    • I was thinking the same thing, full Feb spoilers in January?
      I received mine super late, and it wasn’t even the box that had been revealed on Sephora site, it was a completely different box! So I was disappointed! (I got the mushroom latte!) I cancelled.
      I have received some nice things from play, but I have too many minis laying around that I don’t use and it’s just taking up too much space.

      • The same thing happened to me too

  20. Oooh I want the Estee Lauder foundation! I asked for a sample last time I was there and it was a generous pot I’m still working through. Always up f or more Fresh samples as well.

  21. Oh yay, more leftover birthday gifts this month. WTF, Sephora?

    • If you are new to subs, these are great spoilers!

      But Yes, agree! I cancelled about 6 months ago and yet I still have tried over 1/2 the items as bonus, points or value gift packs.

      I would only want to try the Estée Lauder – but then a chance of a color match issue.

      I will say, I love the watermelon sleeping mask and both fresh products. Got the watermelon mask for 100 or 250 points last month. I bought the value size makeup remover for $7 ? back in November and I’ll never need another bottle.

      What was the reveal fiasco last month? I must have missed the drama 😉

  22. I was going to cancel for February but great spoilers so I’ll cancel in March unless it’s another great month.

  23. Depending on what I receive I think it will be the last month for me. As others said these are all repeats. And some we’ve had twice … I got some repeats in Jan box that only arrived today. Maybe it’s time to try another subscription box? At least there isn’t another dusty mauve lip product…. I’ve given about 7 away so far and got one today!

  24. I don’t even try to guess what I’ll get anymore. My profile has oily, acne prone skin in it, there were multiple products last month for acne and congested skin and I got NONE of them….

    • Thats the reason I quit Ipsy. The variation boxes are great for those who can expirinent with a lot of different things but alas, its not really worth the gamble for those of us with specific skin needs. I have a bucket of makeup I can’t wear that I’ve been handing out like halloween candy😂

      • Trick or treat?

        • LOL

  25. I have received 12 of the 20 spoilers in past boxes. 60% repeat for me.

    • If I add in the ones I’ve had as point perks, it’s more like 70%. There are a ton of new products from brands they carry right now…but they’re still cleaning out old warehouse stock.

      • Totally agree. I have already received the majority of these items. I think taking a break for about 6-8 months while they clear their old stock may do the trick…and then I’ll use that money saved to buy something I’ll actually use!

  26. Why do I feel like we hae had all these before? Maybe because we have. Sephora, please ramp it up a bit.

  27. Good spoilers. Thanks
