  1. Does sephora allow you to opt out of some products ? I hate mascara or anything on my eyelashes. It seems they send it all the time as per the reviews I have read. Is there option to not get it?

    • No you can’t opt out of products. Just don’t subscribe if you don’t want it and go buy your own. Smh

    • I have not received any mascara in my boxes for months. I have received a TON Of moisturizer or facial products, which I am not much a fan of.

  2. For the first time in months I was rather pleased with my box. I kept more than i donated.

    Laura Mercier mascara
    Nars lip pencil
    Biossance repair cream
    Sunday Riley serum
    Algenist sleeping collagen
    Moraccanoil treatment

    • This was my box too! The Moroccan Oil and Bioessence face gel are both repeats for me but luckily I love them both so it’s ok. I love Nars lip pencils. I will try the Algenist cream when I run out of the one I’m currently using but I have liked everything from the brand so far that I’ve tried. The mascara is fine. I can always use more mascara. Sunday Riley is overrated in my opinion but I do like most of the products. Great month from Sephora.

  3. Spoilers for box #905 (if no one has posted yet):

    Glamglow Supertoner Exfoliating Acid Solution Toner
    Laura Mercier Caviar Mascara
    Buxom Full On Plumpling Lip Cream Gloss in Hot Toddy
    REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream
    Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
    Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter

    I’m happy with this box! I was wanting to try the Glamglow the most out of all of the spoilers, and I’m always happy to get another new mascara to try. The Alterna will be gifted since I don’t blow dry my hair and I’m looking forward to using the remaining products.

    • This is my box too. I’m pretty excited about it. I love Buxom lip glosses and I’m excited to try the GlamGlow and the Clinique.

      • This is my box too! But i am not that excited about it. I have received the Clinique moisture surge in a previous box and if you look at the reviews for the products in this box, they are not that good. Except the GlamGlow and the Clinique. Trust me, you will be recieving Clinique repeatedly! I think this is the only box that didnt get the Sunday Riley A+ Retionol. 😔

    • I got this same box, my first one. I’m really pleased with it! I actually already have the Laura Mercier mascara and love it, but this one is perfect for travel.

      • I got the same box also and this is my last. I cancelled because of the same products that i was getting every month in my box. I like Clinique but have gotten this in three other boxes and i had only been a member since January of this year. I was looking at the reviews on the products in our box on Sephora and the REN Global moisturiser and the Caviar blow out smoothing butter did not get that good of reviews. But the mascara didnt really either but you said you liked it. I have never tried it, so i dont know yet. Hopefully you have better luck with your boxes than what i did.

    • My GlamGlow Toner spilled all over my box😤 So i dont know how much was in the bottle but the bottle is small

  4. BOX 889

    NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
    Laura Mercier Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara
    Algenist GENIUS Sleeping Collagen
    Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum
    Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream
    Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment

  5. Did anyone figure out box #897 yet?

    • Box #897

      Sunday Riley A+ serum
      Buxom cream gloss in Hot Toddy
      Bobbi Brown Face Base
      Ren Evercalm day cream
      Algenist GENIUS Sleeping Collagen
      Alterna Haircare CAVIAR smoothing blowout butter

      • This is my box and now I am so excited!!! Finally, no more small mascaras!

  6. For those getting the Sunday Riley or Biossance can you please tell me what your profile looks like because for the life of me I can’t figure their system out! I have 905 and while I’m fairly happy overall I’m not thrilled with the Ren because I don’t have red or sensitive skin and would have LOVED the retinol because my fine lines could use it.😄

    • I got Sunday Riley in both boxes and biossance in my my box
      My main box is 913 and I’m 39 with medium skin, aging & acne. Blonde/blue

      My secondary box is the same, except the birth year on that is 1952 because it was a ln account I made to gift my mil play for a year

      • Thank you! I guess the dry skin part of my profile must have made the difference.

      • I am 39 also and have the same color of hair, eyes and skin that she does plus i put down that i have dry skin like you do and i have only recieved Sunday Riley one time, in my first box that i had recieved from Play. They randomly select what boxes we get, our profiles dont mean nothing.

      • You must be right because so often I’m just scratching my head at the picks🤪 At least it’s not two dry shampoos like that one time!

      • I am blonde haired blue eyes, early 40’s, acne prone/combo skin. I received both Sunday Riley and the Biossance this box..

  7. I’m 940….no clue

  8. Does anyone know what’s in 939? I haven’t seen anyone else with this one yet and it’s driving me crazy lol

    • Same with me!! I am so curious to find out!

    • I also have that box and I never know what is in mine!

    • I have #939 too!!

      • It’s bothering me so bad omg! 🙁

      • #939

        Sunday Riley At Retionol

        Nars velvet lip pencil

        Clinque Moisture Surge

        GlamGlow Toner

        REN global cream

        Caviar smooth blow out cream

    • I have that box as well and according to the app I’m getting:

      SMASHBOX Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Stepping Out

      LAURA MERCIER Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara

      BIOSSANCE Squalane + Omega Repair Cream

      ALGENIST GENIUS Sleeping Collagen

      GLAMGLOW SUPERTONER Exfoliating Acid Solution Toner

      PLAYA Endless Summer Spray

      I’m pretty happy with it. I got all the skincare products that I really wanted.

      • Although after looking at the ingredients list for the glamglow, I realized I won’t be able to use it. It has lactic acid pretty high up in the list. My skin can’t handle high doses of lactic acid. Oh well.

        Also not sure why my box looks so different from Luka’s if we both have #939.

      • Thanks Jennifer and Luka! 🙂 I am so excited for this box, I love all the skincare that we’re getting this time

      • I really wish yours is the box I have! I have 939, but now I am unsure because of Luka’s version. May I ask what your Play profile is like? I am 20, with dry skin, hazel eyes, and brown hair.

      • Alexis my Play profile is actually veryyy similar to yours! I’m 24, I have hazel eyes, dry skin as well. My skin concerns are fullness and acne. I have weird skin that is dry but yet somehow gets acne so I like receiving acne treatments and moisture treatments a lot 🙂

      • Jessica I’m the same! Dry skin with acne too 🙁 I’m glad to hear that our profiles are similar because I love everything your getting!! Fingers crossed I’m getting the same 🙂

      • Jessica I got mine today and it was the same! I love everything!

      • Ok, box #905 sold out so the boxes are mixed up items but still #905. That is what CS told me today. If you have not received your box yet than there is a chance you will be recieving different products than what is actually listed for box #905. Also, i have found out that they dont use our profiles most of the time. We randomly get whatever box gets picked for us. Me and a friend of mine have been a member of Sephora Play box for a year now. We have the Exact same profiles and have kept the same profile this whole time. We have NEVER received the same box and alot of times our boxes were way different and could not have matched to the profile that we had put down. You honestly cant go by someone else’s profile because it is not going to matter because our profiles are not even looked at when they are putting the item (#) on our account.

      • I ended up getting this one too. Not excited about the smashbox bc I don’t wear matte lips but I’m excited for everything else.

  9. I have box #905, in my Sephora App, it has different products that’s posted on here? I’m not sure what’s going on as another MSAer has been told by Sephora Customer Service box 905 is sold out? Does anyone know by chance?

    • How do you see it in your app? And what products does it say you’re getting? This is my box also. I have twice now gotten emails that were wrong about the products I was getting that month, so maybe the app is wrong? I guess we won’t know for sure until people start actually getting the boxes and posting the contents.

    • I’m 905 and my app has shown incorrect products for the past few months. When I look on my laptop browser the products are correct.

      Right now though I got the sneak peak email and the link is broken, so I can’t check on either!

      • I’m Box 871 and I got the sneak peek email too but my link is also broken

      • Box 889, i got a sneak peek email too and it’s also broken.

  10. I have 871 and i am happy with this.
    I have a few of the sunday riley and any retinol is a score.
    the anti freeze blow dry cream is great to try bc i blow dry my hair every day. i LOVE the bare minerals spray. i had a sample of this already and was going to buy the full size when it ran out. it has subtle shimmer in it, and its so great for summer. i already bought the full size glam glow toner, now i will have a travel for when i go away in october! have the nars crayon, will just give away. and meh to clinique but i will use it

  11. I didn’t like this box. Some of the products in the box were crushed when I received them so I just went ahead and canceled. Going to stick Ipsy and Boxycharm. It isn’t worth it to have to call customer service and all that. They need to get better packaging as it was the first box I received. Didn’t want to deal with that so promptly cancelled.

  12. #905?

    • I have 905 also but cannot find anything about this one either.

    • Box #905:

      LAURA MERCIER Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara

      BUXOM Full-On™ Plumping Lip Cream Gloss in Hot Toddy

      GLAMGLOW SUPERTONER Exfoliating Acid Solution Toner

      REN CLEAN SKINCARE Evercalm™ Global Protection Day Cream

      CLINIQUE Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

      ALTERNA HAIRCARE CAVIAR Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter

      • Omg thank you for finding out box 905 contents I tried and couldn’t!

      • It took 4 calls. Each time being told something different, with random “reasons” why they couldn’t tell me.

  13. This month looks great to me! I wish o could find out the contents of box #871. I’ve tried customer service several times and they always say they can’t tell me but then they tell a ton of other people what’s coming in there box. That’s my only issue with the play subscription. If anyone knows what’s coming in box #871 please reply

    • #871 is:
      *Bare Minerals Dew Mist
      *Sunday Riley A+
      *Glamglow toner
      *Clinique moisture surge
      *Nars lip crayon
      *Briogeo blow dry cream

      • Oh wow! Those contents sound amazing! I wanted the Sunday Riley and GlamGlow products the most so getting both will be awesome! This is seriously my dream box for this month, thank you for replying😁

  14. I could see what is in my box on my app which this is my first time with PLAY 🙂 I mine as well give this a try – the contents look good so far 🙂

    If I don’t like this sub how do I cancel ? Thanks

    • You can cancel through your account via a Cancellation link.

      • Thanks Luna 🙂

  15. Box #889

    Laura Mercer mascara
    Moroccan oil
    Sunday Riley
    NARS dance fever

    • I just resubbed and I’m glad I did! I have #889 and I literally got every product I wanted! Great box!

    • Thank you for sharing! This is my box also #889 and for 2 months in a row, I have had all of my wants in them.

    • Excited about the Sunday Riley, but I hate Moraccan oil and Biossance..
      bummer, i usually am happy with my boxes..

    • Cool! 4-5/6 isn’t bad!

    • Thank you for posting! I finally found the number and this is it! I’m happy about everything except for the Moroccan oil… And I *never* get Sunday Riley so =)

  16. Does anyone have box 897?

    • I do! I haven’t seen any spoilers on our number yet, though.

      It’s killin’ me!

      • I also have box 897 and haven’t seen anything yet- Hopefully it’s a good one!

      • Could you share what’s in box 897? I have that one too but when I tried to ask customer service they wouldn’t tell me.

      • FINALLY!

        Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer, Buxom Full On Lip Cream, Algenist GENIUS Sleeping Collagen, Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum, REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream, and the Alterna CAVIAR Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter.

  17. Do most subscribers call (contact) the company for info on their box contents each month?

    • I don’t. Sometimes I’ll look up my box number online and find out from someone that’s posted that same box’s contents. Otherwise I just wait it out because I actually enjoy surprises. Makes my unboxing remind me of looking in my Christmas stocking as a kid.

      • Where do you find the box number online? Thanks!

      • Your box number is the last 3 digits of the Item number (not Order number). 🙂

      • I still don’t understand, what order number and where do I find it?

      • Where do you find the item number? I’ve looked everywhere and am just not seeing it!

      • Nevermind, I found it. I had to look on my computer. I was looking on my phone.

  18. This has never been my favorite sub, but this month I realized I like way more items than not, so I went for it.

    It feels like the last couple months have been a letdown between the NewBeauty boxes, Allure, Boxycharm, even ipsy. I cancelled a bunch and bought the Box of Style at half price and the new QVC TILI box.

    Maybe I’m just getting harder to impress, but it seems like a lot of boxes have been weak sauce lately.

  19. I just called CS and asked for my box contents

    Box 913 is Box E

    *LAURA MERCIER Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara
    *SUNDAY RILEY A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum
    *BIOSSANCE Squalane + Omega Repair Cream
    *CLINIQUE Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
    *ALTERNA HAIRCARE CAVIAR Anti-Aging® Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter
    *AMIKA The Wizard Detangling Primer

    Boo! I was hoping for the Bobbi Brown primer.
    I’m also getting box #887 so I’ll have 2 Sunday Riley serums, 2 Clinique (yuck)
    Why do they give 2 hair items and 2 moisturizers? I’ve gotten Clinique moisture surge at least 4 times this year and 2 mascaras last month.
    I’m so over Play!

    • I think that is Clinique’s newest moisture surge product and has not been in boxes yet.

      • No, this is the same Clinique moisture surge that they have gave out multiple times. I have box 905 and the Clinique is in it. I have gotten this twice now. I received a duplicate item last month also and only been a member since January of this year. I am so over Play, when i contacted CS about the repeat items i got a automated dont care answer. I am not going to keep paying for repeat items, especially when there are subscription boxes that wont send you the same product over and over.

  20. Compared to other boxes I look at this and if the samples had cheeks I’d want to pinch them for being so adorable and teeny tiny!

  21. Trust me..i had this box for a year, they never tell you what is in the box…and they will have the same samples over and over again..i know its just 10.00..but Sephora does not change anything..same old thing.

  22. So I called to get info on my box (they gave it to me last month), he told me that they can’t give the info until the 12th – 15th of the month.

    Has everyone found this to be true?

    • I can’t confirm, but that makes sense if they don’t bill until then and don’t ship until the 3rd week of the month.

    • call again! I just got my box contents!

      • Mb, what number do you have?

      • 913 and I posted spoilers twice here but it didn’t show
        913 is box E

        Sunday Riley A+ serum
        Clinique moisture surge
        Biossance Omega cream
        Laura Mercier mascara
        Amika wizard detangler
        Alterna hair butter

      • Ugh why are my comments not posting???
        Im 913 and it’s box E

        Sunday Riley A+
        Biossance Omega cream
        Clinique moisture surge
        Amika wizard detangler
        Alterna hair butter
        Laura Mercier mascara

      • I have #905.

        I called back again. The next person said that since my box # is sold out, she has no way of knowing what’s in it. Sounds ridiculous to me.

        Anyone have #905 spoilers?

      • I have 913 too, can you share what ‘ s inside the box please? Thanks!

  23. I LOVE this box version. It’s only got one item I’ve already tried which is very rare. And it’s the Sunday Riley so I’m happy to get more.
    I wonder which box number it is?
    Here’s hoping I’ll get it!
    🙏 🙏 🤞🤞 🍀🍀

  24. Aww man, I hope I get the BOBBI BROWN Face Base in my #913 box 🙏🙏🙏

  25. Figures. I resubscribed on the first can’t get this box. Apparently if you are a new subscriber and order by the 11th you get the August box, but if you’re resubbing you won’t get billed until September.

    • Well that sucks! I re-subscribed just because of this box. I just checked my account and I’m not going to be billed until September. Guess it’s time to cancel it again if I’m not going to get this box.

      • That explains it. I read on MSA that if you sub by 8/6 you can get the August box. I did email but haven’t heard back yet. Now that I see the Fresh Strawberry Scrub isn’t in this month’s, I’m okay with waiting until September though.

      • When I saw the billing wouldn’t happen until September I emailed immediately. The rep that responded assured me I would get the August box and be billed by the 5th. That day came and went so I emailed again and that rep said I had to sub by the 15th of last month to get the August box. Right on their site it says to sub by the 11th. I guess I could’ve made a new account but by that point I was annoyed and said screw it and cancelled.

    • Have you tried chat online? I’d ask to get one lol

    • Well that sucks! I thought we all had until the 11th to get this box. I guess I wont be reactivating my account.

    • Darn! I just resubbed but wish I’d seen these comments first. Oh well, on to chat with Sephora…

      • I JUST chatted with them and the rep said I would be getting the August box. Resubbed like 10 minutes before that.

    • That’s so strange. I re-subscribed on 8/11 and I just got confirmation that my box shipped today and will arrive 8/16. I hope it’s not a previous box.

  26. I’m good with it! Not many I’ve tried
