  1. Any spoilers for Box 117? The Sephora rep said he couldn’t offer me any spoilers.

    • I just called CS. box 117 got

      – IT Cosmetics Brow Power™ Universal Brow Pencil in Universal Taupe
      – Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water

    • Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask;

    • IT Cosmetics Brow Power™ Universal Brow Pencil in Universal Taupe;
    • Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water;

    Second month in a raw I love my Sephora Play box, yay!

  3. I got box 133 and I love it. For me march box was a big hit too! They both seemed to be somewhat tailored for me. I am really excited to try glamglow, fresh lippie and youth to people. I have loved clinique high impact before because it is natural looking and comes off with warm water.
    The only problem is that I believe this is my 5th box and I have gathered 3 mattifying primers. I try to pass them onto friends but sephora keeps them coming! Maybe I should change my skin type from combination to dry?

  4. I am so sad to see the decline of this box. Actually, I can say the same for Boxycharm as well. I used to love both of these, but they haven’t been worth the $$$ lately. Might have to cancel those.

  5. Anyone else have 133?

    Or know what box it is? I can’t find anything about this one 🙁

    • How do you know the number of your box?

      • I was wondering that, too, so I looked it up-it says it’s the last 3 numbers of your Play order. I hope this is right, and it helps!

        • It is the last three numbers of the ITEM number, not the order number. (And unless it’s changed, you can’t find the ITEM number in the app, only via the website.)

    • I’ve got that one too and can’t find any info on it either. 🙁

    • Looking for info on #133 as well!

    • I have 133. I havent seen anything either. Hope its good tho. Fingers crossed. Last month was the worst bag ever!

    • From reddit:

      Box#133 spoiler

      Youth to the people adaptogen cream

      Glam glow good in bed

      Clinique mascara

      Make up forever step 1 matte

      Sugar lip treatment

      Extra item is Clinique take the day off cleansing balm.

    • Found it!
      Box #133
      Youth to the people adaptogen cream

      Glam glow good in bed

      Clinique mascara

      Make up forever step 1 matte

      Sugar lip treatment

      And they extra is a blister pack 1 time use Clinique take the day off cleansing balm.

      • That’s a damn good box! But of course not the one I’m getting.

    • That’s my box #
      Someone on reddit posted this 4 days ago:

      “Update: I was asking if anyone called and got their Sephora play contents. I called and was given mine! #133
      I have box number 133. Very friendly and helpful person on the phone! I’m getting:

      Youth to the people adaptogen cream

      Glam glow good in bed

      Clinique mascara

      Make up forever step 1 matte

      Sugar lip treatment (I THINK the translucent one)

      And my extra is the Clinique take the day off cleansing balm. Happy about that instead of a shampoo and conditioner sample!”

  6. Box #838 is C and I’m Not thrilled. It’s box C and it has the Sephora cleansing water, the Fresh sugar lip treatment I believe in the shade dream, MUFE primer in I believe mattifying even though I’m dry, Clinique pep start, UD perversion mascara, and the Christophe Robin foil packet. I’m fine with the mascara and pepstart but I really wanted the YTTP cream since I’m dry and that’s a clean beauty product same with the Volition polish, and I wouldn’t even mind the Dennis Gross product too…so 4 skincare and 1 makeup would have made the perfect box for me but I only got 2/5, and not even the ones I wanted the most. Better than last month but I keep getting duds and not clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of bad ingredients.

    • Amanda, I got 838, too. My primer was the smoothing MUFE, but damn – I JUST got mascara last month. I realize they must have a lot of different options for all of their subscribers. Just wish that they’d actually pay attention to some of our profile information. And honestly, I feel like the Sephora cleansing water was the bottom-barrel choice for that grouping.

  7. I wish they put that entire skincare line up in one Sephora Fav’s box bc I’d buy my max aloud of it LOL I use ALL that and love it! Swapping here I come!

  8. Yay, my box is #141, and I am getting the IT Brow Pencil I wanted. 😉

    Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

    IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

    Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water

    Youth To The People Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream

    Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

    Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

  9. Anyone get #838 yet?

    • I know what’s in 838 and I’m Not thrilled. It’s box C and it has the Sephora cleansing water, the Fresh sugar lip treatment I believe in the shade dream, MUFE primer in I believe mattifying even though I’m dry, Clinique pep start, UD perversion mascara, and the Christophe Robin foil packet. I’m fine with the mascara and pepstart but I really wanted the YTTP cream since I’m dry and that’s a clean beauty product same with the Volition polish, and I wouldn’t even mind the Dennis Gross product too…so 4 skincare and 1 makeup would have made the perfect box for me but I only got 2/5, and not even the ones I wanted the most. Better than last month but I keep getting duds and not clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of bad ingredients. Ugh 🙁

    • I know what’s in 838 and I’m Not thrilled.

Better than last month but I keep getting duds and not clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of bad ingredients. Ugh

      • Omg this is the the 3rd pep start I’ve gotten. I feel like we didn’t get any of the high end stuff like Farmacy, yttp, Glam Glow or Dennis Gross. What are the chances 🙁

      • Nooooo. Are you freaking kidding me?!?!
        I’m #838 too. I got a mascara sample in March’s box. The Fresh Sugar lip balm in Dream was in my December box, and I also got a tiny jar of that Christophe Robin cleansing paste in November!!! They have SO MANY different samples every month, and to get 2 exact repeats from recent boxes, and a second mascara in a row is unacceptable. God forbid they actually look at your past boxes to make sure that you aren’t getting repeats or too many similar items. I’m okay with the Pep Start since I like Clinique. IMHO makeup primers jumped the shark a long time ago. The fact that Sephora likes to call itself innovative and cutting edge (but then they turn around and give you a makeup primer almost every month) is laughable. IDK what to even think about the Sephora water.

        • Ditto on the disappointment with box 838. I also have dry skin marked on my profile, would have loved YTTP and/or Glamglow. I do think this will be my last box. For $10 it is what it is. Although, it has to be one or the lowest valued boxes if not THE lowest? If anyone is up for a box trade or item trade I’d probably consider anything else.

          • Much disappointment here, too. I feel like we got the bottom-barrel box. 🙁

    • I know what’s in 838 and I’m not happy. It’s box C and it has the Sephora cleansing water, the Fresh sugar lip treatment I believe in the shade dream, MUFE primer in I believe mattifying even though I’m dry, Clinique pep start, UD perversion mascara, and the Christophe Robin foil packet. I’m fine with the mascara and pepstart but I really wanted the YTTP cream since I’m dry and that’s a clean beauty product same with the Volition polish, and I wouldn’t even mind the Dennis Gross product too…so 4 skincare and 1 makeup would have made the perfect box for me but I only got 2/5, and not even the ones I wanted the most. Better than last month but I keep getting not so great items and not clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of it’s ingredients.

      • Tell us again how you’re not happy with what you’re getting 😂😂

        • Har har…my comments wouldn’t post and then all of a sudden they finally did… wasn’t trying to repeat myself.

    • MUFE, Fresh, UD, Clinique pep start, Sephora, Christophe Robin

      • I’m fine with the mascara and pepstart but I really wanted the YTTP cream since I’m dry and that’s a clean beauty product same with the Volition polish, and I wouldn’t even mind the Dennis Gross product too…so 4 skincare and 1 makeup would have made the perfect box for me but I only got 2/5, and not even the ones I wanted the most. Better than last month but I keep getting not so great items and not clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of it’s ingredients.

      • Thank you!

  10. Any spoilers for Box 125?

  11. Does anyone have the spoilers for box 125? Thanks 🙂

    • It’s the Sephora micellar water, Clinique yellow moisturizer, Farmacy Honeymoon Glow, UD Perversion mascara, Laura Mercier radiance primer stuff, and that Verb shampoo and conditioner sample. For me, this stinks because I have very oily skin. I hope that you get something that you wanted!

      • Please ignore that. Apparently #125 is supposed to be MUFE equalizer (matte) primer, the IT brow pencil, Dr. Dennis Gross eye gel, PTR cucumber detox mask, Glamglow good in bed, and the Alterna shampoo and conditioner, according to the Sephora website. I think mine was mixed up.

        • This is correct, I just got mine yesterday. Love the matte primer so far!

        • Thanks, Lauren!

  12. I have box 721 on the way. I’m actually pleased with this month. I only signed up 2 months ago but already cancelled it after receiving March’s box which was awful.

    • Look below

  13. Does any one know box #820 spoliers?

    • Mufe skin equalizer, clinique mascara, cleaning water, glam glow, fresh sugar, alterna anti aging.

  14. FYI – Spring Sale dates are:

    Rouge – 20% from April 26 to May 6
    VIB – 15% from May 2 to May 6
    BI – 10% from May 2 to May 6

    • Thanks for that, Luna!

      • Sure thing! 🙂

    • Is the 20 % Rouge discount confirmed? Usually it is 15% for the Spring sale and they lump us in with the VIB’s.

      • Yes. They printed it on the mailers that are being sent out. I think they’re changing it up because they’re trying to keep up with Ulta.

  15. No spoilers for box 141 yet?

    • According to Reddit, box #141 is:

      Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

      IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

      Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water

      Youth To The People Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream

      Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

      Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

      • I feel like I should be disappointed in this box– I like YTTP but I would have really liked to try the volition or the farmacy, I don’t love Urban Decay so I will gift it, I don’t love the PTR mask, I don’t need a mini bottle of micellar water– but I’m just so glad not to be getting the Clinique DDML or the PepStart that I can’t even be annoyed about this combo.

      • Thank You I found out today this is my box. It will be here Tuesday the 16

      • I really wanted the YTTP 🙁 I got #838

        • Same here! Do you know what’s in #838?

        • I’m actually super disappointed in this box variation. We didn’t get any of the new items! I mean I agree at least we didn’t get either Clinique item cause I swear I get the same ones every month lol, but I really wish I would’ve got the farmacy, Glamglow or volition. Heck I would’ve been happy with either sugar lip also! The only thing I even remotely like in my box is the YTTP cream. 😢 Hopefully next month is better!!

  16. Can anyone please share spoilers for box #820 and share reddit link

  17. Can anyone tell me what is in box 820 I cannot find it on reddit. Ty

  18. I think that you can actually call Sephora customer service and they can tell you what your box contains.

    • Yes, I just did & they told me exactly what box & what was n it.

  19. Does anybody else have box 540 or is it just me? Haha

  20. I have box 109 – how disappointing, if the spoiler is correct. Was really hoping for the Farmacy Honeymoon Glow to see how it compares against SR Good Genes. Oh, well.

    • Same here. There were only 3 skin care items I didn’t want from the spoilers & I’m getting 2 of them – dangit!

  21. Wow, no color cosmetics and hardly any makeup? I know it’s only $10 a month, but for such a massive beauty company, their box is really the worst. I feel like I can get most of those samples for free in store. It would be great if they came out with a Plus/luxe version of their sub and charged more for full size stuff, but I supposed their business model is working well enough for them.

  22. Really want the IT brow pencil. 😉 Started to buy one in their great sale right now but decided I might have one from a sub box, as it looks familiar. Not sure now.

  23. Any info on box 774 contents greatly appreciated. ( In the past, my box has most often been box A, but this could be random).

    Thanks! 😉

  24. I really wish they’d start paying attention to sensitive skin profiles. And I really wish they asked about allergens.

    • I marked dry skin marked as well as sensitivity and continually get masks/lotions/timers for normal or combo skin. I really don’t get how they chose boxes. I would have loved to try the Dr Dennis Gross eye cream, the Glamglow or Youth to the People. I don’t know how to make it more apparent that I have dry skin!

    • I wish they would offer fragrance free options.

  25. Wow, this box keep getting worse each month. I’m so glad I cancelled. Sephora really needs to step it up. All the other beauty boxes out there are killing it, while Sephora Play keeps sucking at it.

  26. Can Sephora please for the love of skincare stop putting the Clinique moisturizer and/or Clinique eye cream in EVERY SINGLE BOX EVERY MONTH! I swear it feels like the last 12 months at least 8 or 9 I have gotten the same 2 Clinique products. Just please please change it up a little!

  27. Does anyone know what is in #838 yet?

    • I know what’s in it and it’s not great

      • It’s box C and it has the Sephora cleansing water, the Fresh sugar lip treatment I believe in the shade dream, MUFE primer in I believe mattifying even though I’m dry, Clinique pep start, UD perversion mascara, and the Christophe Robin foil packet. I’m fine with the mascara and pepstart but I really wanted the YTTP cream since I’m dry and that’s a clean beauty product same with the Volition polish, and I wouldn’t even mind the Dennis Gross product too…so 4 skincare and 1 makeup would have made the perfect box for me but I only got 2/5, and not even the ones I wanted the most. Better than last month but I’m not getting clean beauty. I can’t even use the Fresh sugar lip treatment because of it’s ingredients.

  28. Does anyone know what box 721 is?

    • Verb, honey moon glow, clinique lotion, cleaning water, urban decay mascara, Laura mercier primer.

      • Aww I wanted a fresh sugar. Thanks for the info!

  29. I have box 109, spoiled below. There are so many of these products I would love to try and of course 4/5 of the ones I am getting I have zero interest in. It honestly makes me upset. I think it is time to cancel. They keep reeling me in with their awesome spoilers and then giving me bupkis.

    • I have been with Play for almost 2 years now and used to consistently get boxes that I was happy with overall. Starting this year, it seems like the boxes have been hit or miss and don’t match my profile any longer so I am on the fence about cancelling as I still feel the value is there even though there are many repeats. I am lucky enough to be able to find a lot of these box items as points rewards at the four Sephora stores near me so I may go that route instead and only pick the products I really want.

      • I need to get on the point rewards train and just wait for those or Sephora to release “past” boxes to buy. I want to buy the full size of the YTTP Adaptogen moisturizer, but I want to try it first since it is pretty pricey. Hopefully it will be a point reward soon.

        Sephora has introduced me to so many products I love and buy through Play!, but I agree, I have not been getting as good of boxes as I used to 6 months ago. How amazing would it be we could pick our box and they opened selection in different time windows allowing older members to select first. I would never cancel.

        • I love when they release the “past” boxes and we’re able to pick the ones we want and get multiples too!

  30. Definitely canceling. I am literally so disappointed in this whole month (ipsy and boxycharm included)

  31. I’m excited about this month’s box.

  32. OK, please please please who knows where I can buy Morgan’s shirt? I’m in love! I seriously need it in my closet!!!

  33. Is anyone aware that if you retake your beauty quiz and at the end click on “keep playing” they reveal your full spoilers? I was to get the dr jart, benefit mascara, sephora item, nars powermatte, and shiseido sun block. So disappointed I cancelled before they even charged me:/

    • Thats the variation a received last month. I dont think this months pics are up yet.

      • Maybe you’re right, for some reason I thought I saw April at the top. To the person below me you go to subscriptions then scroll down below cancel you see update beauty preferences!

    • Can you tell me where to find the beauty quiz please

  34. Box 109 and 820 spoilers are on reddit already

  35. Some of the spoilers for boxes are already out on reddit.

    • Could you please share reddit link of spoilers. My box is #820 and would love to see whats in it.

  36. I think the selection is good, not much makeup this month, but it’s ok. The only thing- I wish they included perfume samples instead of those small packets.

    • Me too! I missed the perfume samples, it was honestly one of the deciding factor when I cancelled.

  37. Well it’s time to cancel my subscription every month is worst

  38. Ok…now I’m glad I didn’t cancel! Looks good!

  39. I cancelled this months ago – no regrets. Worst box out there at the moment…

  40. A reddit post from 3 days ago said these are the contents of Box D-109:

    UD Perversion Mascara

    It Universal Brow Pencil

    Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

    Clinique Moisturizing Lotion

    Volition Turmeric Brightening Polish

    SACHAJUAN Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

    Win some, lose some.

    • I’ve been on play and macy’s for about 6 months. I think this is the fifth time I am receiving Clinique moisturizer (4 from sephora, 1 from macy’s) so sephora sends me the Clinique moisturizer (and I am even not talking about eye creams here) pretty much every single month. It would have been nice if I could get either glamglow, youth to the people or farmacy, but no! The rest is all new to me, but I am only excited about trying the volition turmeric.

      • Yes I’m glad I’m not the only one that was getting the same dang Clinique moisturizer every single month for like 8 months out of 12. It’s sooooo irritating! Like why can’t they change it up? And when they finally do change it up a little I still don’t get the new stuff! Maybe I should cancel. Idk. I used to really love it but not so much anymore.

  41. Praying for the laura mercier, the it brow, glam glow, honeymoon glow, the clinique eye cream, or the dennis gross eye cream, and the lip treatment! or the gel mask! <3 PLEASE AND THAN YOU PRAY FOR ME LOL

  42. I don’t know how to personalize my box 🙁

    • Unfortunately you can’t personalize your box. Play would probably have a lot more subscribers and less cancellations if you could. The most you can do is go to your subscription on the Sephora site or app and complete your beauty profile. Your box is supposedly chosen based on your answers, but as a former subscriber I have some doubts about that.

      • Its definetly not based on our profiles, i have oily, strait hair and i often receive hair oils, or stuff for curly hair. I also receiving many hydrating products even though i have oily, acned skin. Each month i see variations that would fit me so much better. I dont know why i dont cancel, i guess i just keep hoping it will get better.

        • Ugh – the FOMO is real! I experienced a lot of the same things you did. Literally the only evidence I have that the profile might be partially taken into account is that I’m an AA woman, and sometimes I would get a box by default. Like when all the boxes except one would contain some sort of foundation or base color for light skinned women and I would get the one box that didn’t 🙂

  43. Another makeup subscription box with almost NO makeup included. I’m going to cancel Play, I have no interest in a makeup box that is 95% skincare.

    • Was play advertised as a makeup box, though? After all, Sephora sells more than just makeup.

  44. I think Play is played out.

    • 👏🙌 well said

  45. I was hoping for some fun spring lip color or maybe nail polish or SOMETHING fun. This is such a snooze and I think I’m finally ready to cancel this one…

  46. Wow! I only counted two things I would gift if I were to receive them… the IT brow pencil and the Christophe Robin volumizing paste, so here’s to hoping I actually get a box this month where I’ll keep everything!
