  1. Anyone know what’s in 507? Thanks!!

    • How do you figure out what box you are getting? I can’t, for the life of me, figure it out!

      • I added the app after I subscribed, go into your account, look at online orders, the last three numbers of the item/order number are your box number. I think the late subscribers like me have a different set of numbers for the same boxes.

        • Oh, OK. Thank you! Mine’s 061… if that’s correct?? Who knows. LOL

          • Hi Danielle, it is the item number, not the order number. You cannot see it on the app. You need to go to the sephora.com website and look at your order information to see your item number. I hope that helps.

          • Ohhhh, OK! Thank you so much! Mine is #363. Thank you, again! I appreciate it!

  2. Any spoilers for box #371?

  3. It looks like box 306 and 787 are VERY close to the same items…. no Bobbi Brown eyeshadow 😓

  4. What’s in box #389 ? Anyone knows?

  5. Hm, I’m getting #397.

    • Me too, I haven’t been able to find spoilers for it… 🙁

    • How do you know what box you’re getting?

  6. Spoilers for #249

    *Smashbox Super Fan Mascara
    *Wander Lip Retreat Oil
    *OUAI Body Creme
    *Dr. Brandt needles no more® NO MORE BAGGAGE™ eye de-puffing gel
    *Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream
    *Amika 3D Volume and Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner

    • Thank you! I’m excited to try the eye de-puffing gel. Lord knows I need it this holiday season.

      • Girl, same! I’m super pumped for that Wander Lip Oil, it has really good reviews and it’s finally something that is new to me and not a repeat.

      • The eye gel is fantastic for events and photos! Just be sure to apply products over it very gently or it will “pill” and roll right off…

    • Yay! I’m super excited for that Dr Brandt!

    • Does anyone know what’s in box #306??

      • I think my box is 804. Anyone know what’s in it?

    • Thank you so much for the spoilers on box #249! I’m super excited for the Dr. Brandt and the Fresh face cream! 🤗

  7. #306

    MARC JACOBS Eyeliner

    GRANDE COSMETICS Intense Thickening Mascara

    OUAI Body Cleanser

    SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Cream 🙄

    TARTE Rainforest of the Sea H2O Moisturizer

    DRYBAR Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo/ Conditioner

    • The best box I’ve seen. I feel better abt getting this one, but still not overwhelmed lol. Happier, though

    • Boo. I don’t like any of that.

  8. 389 here but I think I’ll just wait and let it be a Christmas surprise…. FYI it looks like in the app, you can only see the order number, you have to be on the website to see the item number…

    • Once you know you’re # where can you see your box?

  9. Anyone know what’s in 389?

  10. Does anyone have spoilers for #779?

  11. Just canceled because my last few boxes missed the mark. Also Allure for January is looking tempting!

  12. any spoilers on box 306?

  13. I have box 249 this month. I’m trying to hold out and not get full spoilers. But if anyone knows anything…😆

  14. Any spoilers for box 249?

  15. I wonder what will be in box #371. I never receive any sneak peaks of my boxes until after I’ve already received the box. I love getting spoilers so I can see how the products are used before I get them. The one time that Sephora actually sent me the spoiler before the box, it ended up being none of the same items that were in the spoiler.

  16. Out of all my subs, Sephora has always been my favorite. I say it every month, but again, I’d give up any of the others in a heartbeat to keep this one, had I had to make a choice.
    I prefer getting all name brand items each month as opposed to getting maybe one out of all the other items in the other subs.
    I never understood why the Play Pass is such a big deal to people, I end up chunking them a majority of the time anyway. Someone said it costs them nothing to include it- which is exactly right. I feel lucky they included it at all in the past, considering they didn’t have to 🤷 All great brands, I always like my box, it’s the cheapest out of all my subs, they included something for free they never “needed to” in the first place, and people are still complaining. I just don’t understand.
    That being said, this is probably my least favorite box all year. I’m not really thrilled about any of it. And I always wonder why they’re so shady about keeping the damn spoilers hidden lol. But go, Sephora. You’ll always have a subscriber in me 😊

  17. Both my boxes are 306 this month. Hoping for good stuff 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
    So many repeats though!

    • I’m 306, too

  18. I just want that eyeshadow…

  19. I’m box 298! I hope it’s the variation above 🤞🏼

    • Box 298:
      Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow Stick
      Smashbox Super Fan Mascara
      Wander Beauty Lip Oil in Skinny Dip
      Dermalogica Exfoliant
      Fresh Soy Cleanser
      Amika Shampoo and Conditioner

      • Definitely would rather have box 363!

        • Hi Kenley, Do you know what products you’re getting? I have the same box as you! So, please do share :)!

          • Oops! I meant do you know what products are in box #363? Thank you, Kenley!

          • Charlotte Box 363 contains:

            -Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow Stick
            -Anastasia Dipbrow Gel
            -Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
            -Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream
            -Tarte Drink of H20 Moisturizer
            -Living Proof No Frizz Styling Cream

      • Getting this one- I cannot wait!! This one is definitely one of my best boxes yet.

        • Does anyone know what’s in box 311? Thanks so much!

  20. how do ya’ll get a number so fast…

    • After Sephora charges you for the box, check your recent orders and the last 3 numbers of the item are the box number.

  21. Really hoping that variation is box 363!! 🤞

    • Ok definately not. Customer service just told me box 363:
      -Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick
      -Anastasia Dipbrow Gel
      -Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
      -Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream
      -Tarte Drink of H2O Moisturizer
      -Living Proof No Frizz Styling Cream

      • Thank you so much for asking!

        I m actually really happy with it!

        • I am ok with it too, but I just cancelled my subscription to try out Birchbox. I think I would be happier with the ability to choose samples.

      • Omg I would love that box!!!

      • Yay! I have box #363. Seems like good products.

      • Can Sephora please stop with the Living Proof samples? There are other hairlines out there.

  22. I love PLAY! My goodness $10? What do people expect? I love PLAY !!!! They rock and I refuse to cancel !

    • Bingo. Exactly.

  23. If I didn’t splurge on Black Friday, I’d pick this up.

    Love the brow gel and the golden pink shadow stick (one of my past sephora box faves that I haven’t been able to afford to repurchase!).

    I’ll have to keep in mind and maybe pick this up… hm. But I’m soooo broke right now.

  24. Ok ok.. not bad but not amazing.

    I have box 363. Can’t wait to see what’s it in!

  25. I think these are great spoilers and I noticed that they don’t give anymore spoilers out. Plus, do they still have the 50 point perk, I sure hope so?

    • They stopped the play passes in November. Supposedly, they did away with them to put better items in the boxes. When I got a mediocre box, I thought at least the play pass made up a little for it. I cancelled my subscription as a result.

      • Did sephora say that? It costs them absolutely nothing to include that points pass, it’s literally something that they made up and can just print at will 🤣🤣 it should have absolutely no bearing on the quality of the products. what a stupid excuse!
        I heard rumblings that they are rolling out a new rewards system next year that will be comparable to Ulta’s in that you can actually redeem points for a dollar value, and so those sweepstakes they keep running are an attempt to get people to drain their points banks before they roll out the new system

        • Wait you know printing things costs money right

        • Yup, they absolutely said they were stopping the points to give us better products!!! I asked on the Sephora community Play page and pretty much gave the moderator the same response you said! Lol they r ridiculous!!!!

          • I’m thankful that they included them at all in the first place, when they didn’t have to 🤷
            I didn’t use them all the time, but no other sub offers anything like that.
            Every single one of my other subs went up but Play. They can keep their card as long as they keep the price point. That was never why I subbed in the first place and has no bearing on what I think about the box.

      • Best part is that they didn’t even announce this to subscribers – just sent a 20% off coupon in lieu of the card and then no card at all the next month. Sephora is terrible at customer communications. I canceled after October and have no regrets.

  26. Yeah my birthday month. I like what I see.

  27. Nice ! Love me some Sephora 💕❤️

    • Does anyone know what’s in box 311? Thanks!

  28. Nice!

  29. Can anyone compare Play to Birchbox and tell me which you prefer? They look super similar.

    • With Sephora, a box is chosen for you. You have more choices with birchbox and you can swap box for points to use in shop to get what you really want. So more choices with birchbox, but it’s more expensive unless you an ace

    • Depends what brands you want. They both have small sample sizes and repeats over time, so look through past reviews to see what brands you might enjoy more.

    • I feel like they used to be more similar, but Birchbox has really stepped it up lately.
      Sephora does have some high end brands that Birchbox doesn’t, but Bb is picking up more all the time. And you occasionally get a brand new product that is just coming out. But it’s all sample or “deluxe sample” size, and one of the 6 they call a “bonus” and it’s often a packet. Aaand at least every other month you will likely get a Sephora brand item. And no personalization, you get 1 of 4-5 curated sets in a colorful zip lock bag. Foundation samples have been near my skin tone, though.
      Bb will probably never have the vast array of product lines that S has.. But they have added many of the brands I started Play! to try. Very personalized, they definitely pay attention to your profile. I can tell the difference when I change my skin issues seasonally! And you have the option to choose one of your samples, or a special curated box, often with a theme or a guest curator (not personalized, but you know exactly what you’re getting), or points which are like money on the site, or for Aces a specific full-size product… Almost too many choices. Good sample sizes, some I would call travel size, and now, they have started including full size items in the boxes! The only time I’ve gotten a packet, it was conditioner to go with a shampoo and wasn’t counted as a sample. Last month I let them pick, and I got some good winter skincare and a full size Wander Beauty mascara. This month I picked a curated box (there were 4 this time!) and I’m getting a full size MAC lipstick AND a full size Smith and Cult nail polish. Aside from the boxes, Bb has never screwed up an order, has great customer service, and IMO the points are better than the Beauty Insider program.
      tl;dr : Sephora Play! is nice, but Birchbox rules.

  30. Liking it! May cancel Ipsy and just keep this one.

  31. That variation looks great to me!👍

    • I kept Sephora playbox for 6 months and ended up canceling and sticking with Ipsy. Sephora playbox has never given me a decent box that went well with my skin type or skin zone. Ipsy has been going downhill lately as of late. But it’s better than the playbox.

  32. This sub is just not exciting to me at all, but I stay with them, because it’s only 10 buckeroos 🤷‍♀️. Least fav though.

    • I held on to Sephora, Macy’s, Birchbox and Allure just cause they’re so cheap. And then I realized that all these cheapos combined cost me $55. Switched to Laurel & Reed for the same price. Got used to the luxury and now I’m no longer tempted by the wasteful, hit-or-miss tiny samples.
