Posted in Play! By Sephora Spoilers, Subscription Box Spoilers| Tags: play by sephora | 133 comments


  1. I’m done. cancelled my Sephora Play. VIB Rouge, received box J – I feel like i always get the worst box and the amount of shampoo and dry shampoo they have sent out in the past few months is ridiculous. No more Sephora Play.

  2. I haven’t received my box yet, but my preview show’s that I’m getting The Nars lip, which I already have and it’s not a great color for me. Was hoping for the other Nars product the Laguna bronzer, I haven’t tried it yet. My box is supposed to be A. I guess I will see once it arrives.

  3. I just got my box B or 707 today. I dont know how I feel about it. I’m not usually one to complain and I’m usually generally happy with my box but this one is weird. 2 dry shampoos. And Sephora brand mascara. I have a ton of mascaras already from sub boxes but if I’m going to sample mascara I want to try name brands. I do like the sunscreen. I have got that exact one before. I’ll try the bronzer.

  4. I got the “see what you got” email last night, and it matched box G, and my box arrived today, it is indeed box G and my last 3 numbers were 966. I’m actually HAPPY with this, even though I will NOT use that dry shampoo and am really tired of getting it…well I take that back, I will use it to de-stink my athletic shoes and gardening shoes this summer.

    But I’m most thrilled that for the first time, in like, EVER a subscription box color matched me with the correct foundation shade. It matches me to a tee! It says “chosen for your skin tone” in the email and it really matches. Guys, I can’t tell you how excited I am about that, especially since last month I got the super dark Estee Lauder one that I was so eager to try, but not in a shade 4 times darker than I am. This one is perfect. And thus Sephora removes itself from my “I gotta get rid of some of these subscriptions” chopping block for now!

  5. I am 681 which is box A. I’m happy about it other than the Ouai wave spray. None of the Ouai products work for my hair for some reason. It has a very strong perfume smell also, and it’s too much for me. However, I love the Nars Lip pigment, the Dr Jart color corrector, the MM replica music festival perfume (smells wonderful and didn’t think I’d like it at all) and I actually love the Sephora volume mascara although I’d prefer high end products which is why I subscribe to Sephora Play. The Shiseido sun protection lotion will come in handy too as you can never have too many sun protection products. All in all. a win for me this month.

  6. I just opened a “See what you got” email from Sephora that showed the contents for box A, but I actually received box B. Box A would have been a better fit, but there are a few items that I find useful – that mascara is one of my favorites, too.

    • The same happened to me!! I got a “see what you got” email for one box and got a completely different box! Why?!?!

      • This has happen to me 2 months in a row, I emailed Customer care and they send me one free sample out of courtesy lol, I cancelled the following morning They have been going down hill they need to clean up there act.

  7. I really love that mascara, it’s become my favorite! I first received it in a previous PLAY box and was unsure about it because I received a different “lash craft” variety mascara before that I did not like. But I like the Lash Craft Big Volume mascara so much! I even bought 3 play boxes that were available on the website during the holidays because they had that mascara and some other products I liked. It seems I will be getting box B and I’m happy it has that mascara again! I have so many minis of it, I have yet to buy the full size, but I have seen the full size in store and it is HUGE! I believe it contains 0.4oz of product which is a ton for a mascara! Almost think I prefer the mini because with that much product in the full size I think it would just dry out before you use it up. I see they offer a mini size of the length+volume version of this mascara for $5, I may have to try that next. (The one I didn’t like was the “have it all” lashcraft mascara). The two dry shampoos in box B seems silly but I have been using dry shampoo more often lately so I’m not mad about it.

  8. I got Box B and it is a total dud IMo. 2 dry shampoos in 1 box??? I don’t even use dry shampoo! I have been so underwhelmed with Play recently.

    • Worst box ever! I have already received almost everything in this box in previous months 👎🏻👎🏻

    • Me too. I don’t hate this box . It’s just ok. Nothing exciting.

  9. Annnnnd, I’m out. TWO dry shampoos, a Sephora line mascara and a bronzer (I don’t care that it’s from NARS, I am super fair and it will look like dirt). I will use the perfume and the Supergoop. I may be wrong, but isn’t the Supergoop item a teeny tiny sample? I’ve been thinking Sephora needed to go and this just confirms it. None of the other variations looked much better than mine. 😑

    • I got the same.

      Fair skinned and this box does nothing for me!

      This is the worst box in a long time 🙁

    • Yeah got box 2 it’s a dud! I don’t use mascara (have extensions), already have the bronzer and well you know the rest.

  10. I think its time for me to give up Sephora Play – My box is Box J and its absolutely worthless to me – tired of getting shampoo and dry shampoo as well as repeats.

    • I am not happy with my box either. I got box B MINUS NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna. It was not even in the box. So Two Dry shampoos which one is a repeat, and 1 missing item. Even though it is only 10 dollars, I can overlook some of my disappointment on some samples, but to totally be missing an item makes me think that it might not be worth it going forward.

    • Same here and completely agree!

  11. Why in the world would they curate a box with TWO dry shampoos?!! Seriously?! They could have at least put another skincare product in there, or something. I hardly ever complain about my box, but this one really stinks! BOO!!!!!! 🙁

    • I’m getting the same box. The entire thing sucks, IMO.

    • Agreed . I won’t use either and what a waste to send two or the same thing that some people don’t ever use .

    • I don’t mind. I love dry shampoo

    • I also got two dry shampoo… the worst play box which I got!!!!

    • And the Nars in mine was so very tiny and too dark. This is the second time I got the Lashcraft and I don’t use dry shampoo. Not liking it one bit.

    • I agree! I rarely complain about this box but I didn’t need two dry shampoos. To make it worse it seems like the triple sec is nearly empty.

      • Right?! I sprayed it once and it was empty!!! Box B totally sucked! I actually think it is the worst box I ever received. >:/

  12. Box F is 988

    • thanks, that’s the one I wanted!

  13. does anyone know what’s inside box 577, because i assume this is my box no… also my box still is as not yet shipped- is that normal? i know that i should receive the box next week or so, but the ups website says “When the shipment arrives at our facility the delivery date will be updated.” which means the box is still not at their facility (and yet i’ve received a confirmation that my box was shipped on monday…?). please tell me what’s going on if you know something.

  14. Box 681 is Box A.

    I’m VERY pleased with what I’m getting. I sat out the last couple of months because boxes were suddenly not at all curated to my profile- and this box looks really great, to me personally. I wonder if there’s a correlation?

    • I reallly wanted this box. But no, I’m getting B.

      • Me too! I’m hoping I get a different one🤞

    • This is my first box and I so badly wanted box A and that’s what I’m getting. Super excited!!!

  15. What is in box 681?

    • Thats box A

  16. anyone know which box is 988?

  17. Does anyone have box #988?

  18. Does anyone know what box is 964

  19. 954 is Box C, I got mine today.

    • Anyone know what box 964 is?

  20. Anyone get 267?

  21. Does anyone else have 973? I want to know which box I got!

  22. Per Sephora customer service, Box #970 is Box E .

    • Thanks so much for sharing! Overall, I’m pretty happy with that box. The foundation & sunscreen will be gifted, but I love getting mascaras in boxes, and I’ve tried the IT cleanser before, and absolutely fell in love with it! The pads serve as nice toner pads, so I’m happy to get them even though they never really bring any “radiance” to my skin (lol). I love trying new perfumes, and I’ve never tried that Versace fragrance before.

      • Hi Luna! I’m lazy to look for our previous conversation but we were talking about using the play pass online multiple times. I tried to use it that way (24hrs apart, jic) and it won’t let me. It turns red and gives verbatim about me previously using the code. Which kinda sucks. I typically place my orders in small batches ($25+ to get my freebies multiple times) and had to use this months March Play! code to get my addtl points in my second order. But, I suppose it’s better to use them or lose them as I’ve been forgoing them in the past because, for me, purchasing $20+ every month online for 50pts isn’t justifiable or realistic. I realistically probably haul there 4-5x a year. Anyway, hope that helps and you get to see this message! Take care!

    • Do you know which one is 964

  23. ugh – i really want to try NARS american woman!! need a sample

  24. Box #494 anyone?

  25. I was subscribed for over 2 years and have been gone for about 4 months. For almost the entire second year, I got soo many repeats, but I held on hoping and wishing I would start getting newly released products regularly (never happened obviously).
    I just wanted to see if I should sign back up. Sheisodo sunscreen is about the only new thing in these boxes and I have no desire to have it.
    Sephora could do soooo much better!
    I challenge you guys to make me want to subscribe again!

  26. 428 anyone ?!

  27. I just got mine today, 707 which is box B. I hate to complain but this is the 4th time I’ve gotten that drybar stuff, what’s going on with that? Also the second time getting the mascara. I was hoping for the foundation or the nars lipstick because they have been on my wishlist on the Sephora app for a while, but I will say this box is better than what i’ve been getting. Last month especially my samples were barely filled 1/4th of the way and were already in tiny bottles. Pretty much got 1 use out of the skincare samples. So they are bigger this time!

    • My Caudelie Vinoserum was empty, and customer service sent me a new one. See if they’ll at least give you some points for empties.

  28. How do I access the Number box without the app? Tks!

    • On desktop, find the Play box order in your account, click View Details, and it’ll be the last 3 digits of the Item number. 🙂

  29. I got box C. I’m actually pretty excited!

  30. I have the box with the Sheseido (spelling?) sunscreen, the Dr. Jart item, Ouai wave spray, Nars lipstick, and Maison Margiela perfume. I would be willing to trade anything but the Nars lipstick for a Nars bronzer because I love Nars products. I’m on the Reddit Beauty trade board, my name on there is Nevermindxo if anyone wants to contact me. 🙂

  31. I’m confused , are the last 3 numbers of the item or order number ? Thanks

    • Item number

      • I don’t see an item number. Just an order number! Where do I find this information?

        • Go to recent orders > order details (item number will be in a small font under “PLAY! By Sephora”)

  32. I just got my box today. I have #962, it was Box D. I REALLY wanted Box J, but I guess the one I got isn’t too bad. I never get the box variation I want.

    • Ugh. I’m so disappointed to learn this– I really could have used ANY of the variants with a sunscreen. Instead, I’m getting a foundation that doesn’t match, a bronzer I won’t wear, a cleanser I hate, a dry shampoo I have a million of, and a perfume that will give me a migraine.


      I like the mascara, anyway.

      • I have this variant arriving tomorrow too. I think it’s time I end this sub. Too many variant that look great, then there’s the one I receive.

        • I’m so perplexed about it, too, because last month’s box was so on point for me. How can they be so right one month and so wrong the next?

    • I can’t see an item number on the app. It only shows play by Sephora then an order #. But I received my box today. I received box d. I’m fine with it though

  33. 028 anyone?

    • This is my box as well.

    • Mine too!

      • I called and found out our box is the very last one box J, unfortunately I have straight thick hair so I’m not sure why I got this box. Everything else seems good though?

    • I just chatted with Customer Service and #028 is J.

      • I was really really really hoping for C, G, or H. I guess I’ll just give everything besides the sunscreen away to my family members. Oh well, here’s hoping next month is better for me.

      • I am 028 as well and was actually hoping for J. Good news for me at least!

      • wow thanks Courtney.

        J is okay, I would be jealous if I already didn’t have Nars American Woman (had it from rewards bazaar and I really love it).

      • Same here… worst box ever. The app is telling me the deva curl was specially picked for my hair type. Deva Curl for stick straight hair. Mmm hmm. I don’t care about sunscreen and my face is as pale as a ghost, so bring on the bronzer that will make me look 10 shades darker than I am. What a crap box.

  34. I just resubbed after being away for 6+ months. I swear if there is dry shampoo in my box I’m canceling again. I don’t use it and I’m tired of getting it.

    • I’m getting not one, but TWO dry shampoos! I already got the Drybar and gave that to my daughter in law because I don’t use dry shampoo.
      And the first spoiler said everybody would be getting a sunscreen, but there’s one box up there that has no sunscreen. Time to dump Play.

  35. I just got off a live chat with a Sephora CSR and he told me that my box #681 is Box A.

    • Oh wow, I’m glad I finally know! Thank you! I was hoping for the Nars bronzer but the lipstick will be cool too. I like all Nars products.

      • You’re welcome! I was hoping for Box I for the UD Primer potion and the Klorane but box A is good too.

    • So lucky! I really wanted Box A!

  36. I dont even bother checking my Sephora Play spoilers anymore because I always seem to receive another variation Lol

    • That is so true. Used to be so reliable but after the mixup fiasco from months past I cancelled. Nothing worse than looking forward to something and getting something totally different.

  37. 770, Hope its on with the foundation, I’ve been wanting to try it. I wish they’d give the option to be picky about sunscreen ingredients ( Like to say no to certain ingredients, or even just a chemical/ physical split.) My face has some hatreds.

    • Maybe I looked at the wrong number – I got Box A, which was one of my top hopes.

  38. I have box 681 and haven’t seen anyone mention it yet 🙁 I’m so anxious lol I’m really hoping for the Nars bronzer

  39. Does anybody else have 962? I feel like I’m the only one with that number lol

    • I also have #962. Based on what has already been posted, I am hoping for I or J. Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow. If someone else doesn’t post about it before tomorrow evening, I will let you know!

    • I have 962. Mine came today, it was Box D.

  40. *sigh* I WAS supposed to get mine today according to tracking.. but it was not here with the rest of my mail.. anyway, I’m box # 954.. if it shows up tomorrow I’ll post the contents

    • box c!

    • I’m 954 too same thing. Shows it should hVe been delivered but didn’t show up in my mail.

  41. The sunscreen is on point. But although I like many of the Replica scents, but I would NOT be happy receiving the “Fireplace” scent in the Spring……. That type of product disregard is why I cancelled.

    • Ya, I was a bit dismayed that they chose to throw a winter style scent in there! I was sooo hoping for the music festival one!

  42. I would like to see more make up items approaching Spring/Summer, and fewer cleansers and dry shampoos each month. There are some wonderful new mascara that would also be fun to try in each box.

    10 variations is a lot this month.

  43. Box 954 was spoiled on reddit as box C. Which happens to be my number.

    • Oh nice! That’s my number. It was the 4th in line for what I wanted.. so overall not bad I suppose

      • It’s one of the best boxes for my usage. When I seen the foundation I figured it was going to be my box. I’ve gotten previously and end up buying a full size. Another mini is great for a travel bag. I don’t mind repetitive items as long as they’re products I like. Opting out of perfumes and hair products would be my ideal box.

  44. My box is 707. Anyone else? Anyone know which one that is? I’m hoping it’s not A

    • Also 707! Haven’t seen any spoilers yet.

    • Just got box #707, it’s box B. Hope y’all like dry shampoo!

      • Again! *sigh*

      • Dang, I have 707 and B was the one box I did not want. I got that mascara in a past box and still have it, and I’ve also already received both of those dry shampoos. And that bronzer looks too dark for me. Well, 50 free points I guess.

      • Thanks for sharing! I’m okay with B. I REALLY didnt want a foundation because it always just goes in my giveaway box. I think I’ll try it use everything in B. Not an amazing month but not the worst.

      • I have short hair and don’t need two dry shampoos. I’ve tried the mascara, have a mini of the bronzer and don’t like the perfume. Honestly, I don’t even need sunscreen. This box is a complete waste for me.

      • I have 707 and actually DO like dry shampoo and have been wanting to try Amika for a bit so I am satisfied. There isnt another box I would have loved, all have some good things and some ok things.

      • Seriously? That’s the one box I absolutely didn’t want. WTF? Two dry shampoos in one box? That Dry Bar one is gross. I’ve received everything in that box before. All I wanted was the NARS lipstick. Guess it’s time to cancel. I’m getting more and more disappointed each month.

      • Noooo… I hate dry shampoo. Why do they think everyone wants that stuff?

      • Ugh. I already have the Drybar texturizing spray AND the Sephora mascara, and I’ve only been subscribed for a year. I won’t use the bronzer either. Disappointing. I guess at least there’s no mushroom latte?

    • I have 707 and A is the only box I really like. I would take I or J though.

    • Totally the worst box and I won’t use one thing in that boxy. None of it fits my profile in any way. This is getting really old! You would think Sephora would have the best samples. And I’m sick of the variant boxes. Sample were better all the boxes were the same.

  45. How do I find out what box I’m getting? This is my first box.

    • Within your account, look at your orders. Once you find the order for the play box, click View Details, and it’ll be the last three digits of the item number.

      • How does the last 3 digits correlate to the which letter?

        • I actually posed a similar question below! 😀 I don’t think anyone knows until they get their boxes and start comparing what’s in their box to what the spoilers are.

  46. Ummm, that’s a lot of variations. I’m thinking this will be my first and last month.

  47. I know my box number (970), but not box letter. Is there a way to tell which box above I’d get? Also, if I use my play pass online, can I still use it in store too?

    • Mine is also 970…

    • 970 also! And yes! You can use it in store as well😉 many times over …so don’t let them collect your card if you plan on going back thru the line

      • Thanks Rebecca!!! I knew about being able to re-use it in stores (I’ve been keeping a solid grip on my pass when they scan it since last year. Lol!!!), and I think you stated above, but just to confirm… can I also use it multiple times online too? My play pass always gives me an excuse to go into a Sephora store at least once per month to check out what’s new & exciting, but sometimes they don’t have items that have caught my eye (like certain Favorites kits), so I’d have to resort to getting them online if I really wanted it. Thanks again 🙂

  48. By the Fireplace is one of my favorite scents. I got that once in a play! box when they first came out. It’s too expensive for me to buy full size, though :o(

    • I love it, too! I get samples of it whenever I’m in Sephora and it lasts me a bit, just fyi 😉

      • ooh! I’ll have to stop in and ask, thanks Lori!

        • Np! They will give you 3 fairly generous samples of any fragrance! I do it every time I’m there 🙂

          • One of my local Sephora’s finally started carrying Jo Malone fragrances in store, and it was like pulling teeth to get a sample 🙁 You’d think it was coming from the lady’s personal stash or something. Lol! She filled the vial about halfway, so I still think I’ll get a fair number of uses out of it, but sheesh with the semi-attitude! Actually, it was just that one time for me… they’re usually the ones offering to make me samples without me having to ask!

    • That happened with Sailing Day for me.

  49. Ten variations??? If they have that much flexibility, they should allow the client to pick one item specifically. Say, send an email at the beginning of the month, and let the client log in and pick one out of three items. I think Birchbox does that, and with fewer box variations. It’s possible and desirable. I’d come back to this sub if they did that.

    • I don’t think BB has fewer variations…. they just don’t release “full variation spoilers” like Sephora does. I would even guess that they have more because they don’t just choose from a small pool of items each month.

  50. I want box J but I know I’m not going to get it because I never get the box I want.

    That and I’m not subscribed.

    • I had to chuckle at this. I was subscribed for almost 2 years but just recently gave it up. I was just over not getting stuff that matched my profile, small sample sizes and then the repeats started. I wouldn’t be upset with most of these variations or products, but at the same time I don’t feel like I’m missing that much either. If anything, the stuff I want I know I want because I’ve already sampled it. Speaking of which, I love that Dr. Jart stuff!

      • HAHA, this was great. It really is the same stuff over and over. I did 2 months and canceled, with no FOMO since. It’s a terrific sub if you’re new to boxes or these products, though!

      • Same! Except I was only subscribed for a couple of months before the repeats started. What I really want is the DevaCurl but I the smart thing to do is just go ask for a sample!
