Sephora Play! has been the only subscription box service that has stuck for me. I like that the products that I receive are actually ones that I will use or I have at least wanted to try out. The theme for August’s Play! is “The Innovators” and these are products that are different and interesting. A small card is included with every bag that is good for 50 beauty insider points that can be redeemed for deluxe samples at check out.
When I first saw this I must admit that I bought it immediately because I knew that it would be one of those things that would either be totally fantastic or it would be a complete dud. The Sephora Play! Iconic Edition was limited to VIB Rouge Sephora shoppers and cost $20. Immediately after launching there was some black lash from customers about why this would be considered a perk of being VIB Rouge. There was also some hoopla about Sephora deleting 1-star reviews on their site. Honestly there were a lot of 1-star reviews from people that couldn’t possibly have received their boxes, but I did notice that many comments and reviews that where there the first time that I checked were gone later when I went back to look into it.
Moving on, I purchased my box for $20 and I received it two days later with the use of Flash Shipping. To be totally fair, I really do not gravitate towards the “luxury” brands that I knew would be in this box. They generally are not geared towards people my age or skin type and I have other brands that I prefer. I did; however, take into account that there are a lot of people that are careful about what they spend their money on and would be interested to know what was inside. I figured that spending $20 would be worth seeing what some of these brands would have to offer and here is what I got.
Sephora Play is a subscription box service that costs about $10 a month and is delivered mid-month. This is the only subscription box service that I currently receive and I am typically not disappointed. When I signed up for this service I was able to avoid being placed on waitlist because of having VIB Rouge status; however, I believe that the waitlist for Play is relatively short.
The theme of March 2017’s Sephora Play! bag is Glow Your Own Way. This month’s bag is full of deluxe-sized samples of products that will ensure a glowy, dewy complexion. A Sephora Play! Subscription will run you $10 per month which is billed on the 1st of every month. My bag is typically delivered mid-month.
