It an okay box, most of them are worth the $10, not for the value to me, but worth it to try a new product. I have so say it; I HATE THE PLASTIC THING!! I want the soft bag back. I almost canceled when they changed it. I thought others would hate it too. It still irks me and I’ll probably cancel finally and be done with it.

I really enjoy Sephora play! Some months are better than others but, the value is there! I'm also subscribed to Ipsy so I like to use Sephora play as a way to get extra products to try out in addition to my other box! Gives you something extra to look forward to each month!!

Play By Sephora use to be my favorite. Anymore, the samples are getting even smaller and smaller. So small you might be able to try a product 1x if your lucky. My biggest issue right now is that I keep getting sent duplicates. I know it only costs $10 but for 5 - $10 more I can get SUbs that offer full size products that are worth of ton of money. I'm sure sephora throws away tons of products from expiration dates. They could be giving these away before hand but they dont. I'll be canceling this month. $10 adds up. Hopefully they make a change. I've been enjoying Boxycharm, allure, ipsy and i'm thinking about signing up to scentbird. I heard you can get skincare there now. (Full size skincare) $15 a month.

    What is Play! By Sephora & how does it work?

  • Play! by Sephora ($10 per month) is a beauty box created and curated by the makeup experts at Sephora. Each month, Sephora puts together several collections of seasonal, on-trend products from premium brands, then matches you with the version that fits your beauty interests and preferences.

    The makeup, haircare, skincare, and fragrance samples in each box represent the same brands you’d find in an actual Sephora store. Here are just a few of the brands we’ve seen in recent boxes: Urban Decay, Make Up Forever, Clinique, Tarte, Amika, Dr. Jart, Laneige, Moroccan Oil, Supergoop, Tatcha, & many more!

    In addition to 5 monthly beauty samples, you’ll also get: A bonus item, a resealable, recyclable plastic travel bag (The design changes every month!), a book of tips and info about your new beauty items, access to exclusive online content, like beauty tutorials, and a Play! Pass—a pass that you can redeem for in-store experiences & 50 Beauty Insider points in-store or online.

    How much does Play! by Sephora cost?

  • Play! by Sephora costs just $10 per month + FREE shipping. (Ships to US only.) It’s one of the best affordable subscription boxes we review, and we’re consistently happy with the value it delivers. (Play! by Sephora promises up to $65 worth of samples each month.)

    Is Play! by Sephora the same as Sephora Play?

    What makeup you get in a Play! by Sephora box? Is it all Sephora makeup?

Think makeup brands like Urban Decay and Make Up Forever, notable skincare brands like Caudalie and Clinique, trending haircare brands like Moroccan Oil and Amika, and even popular Korean beauty brands like Tatcha and Laneige.

    Are Play! by Sephora boxes personalized?

  • Yes! Each month, Sephora puts together several versions of their box, then matches you with the version that best fits the preferences you set when signing up. Is each item specifically picked out just for you? No, but you’re still getting something that should fit your interests, style, and preferences.
