Play! by Sephora is a beauty subscription box featuring a curation of five deluxe samples (plus a fragrance bonus) for $10 a month. It’s basically Sephora’s version of Birchbox or Ipsy, but with a couple of bonuses. Read more for the reveal and my thoughts on the subscription box!

Play! By Sephora July 2016 Subscription Box:

  1. Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer
  2. OUAI Wave Spray
  3. blotterazzi by beautyblender
  4. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser With Red Clay
  5. Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer
  6. NEST Citrine Fragrance Sample

I’ve only tried Birchbox once and have never tried Ipsy, but once I learned about Sephora Play! I immediately signed up for the waitlist. I learned earlier this month that I was taken off the waitlist so I immediately paid and subscribed to my first box.

Play! is different from Birchbox and Ipsy in several ways. The first difference is the fragrance bonus – in addition to the five deluxe samples, Sephora’s box also comes with a perfume sample. I collect perfume samples (there’s a reason my Instagram handle is @collectionofvials, haha) so I love that they do this! The box also comes with a card which allows you to go into a store and get a free one-on-one tutorial for advice customized to you. Another bonus, the one I’m most excited about, is something called a Sephora PLAY! DATE. Basically, it’s an event in one of the Sephora stores where you get to meet fellow subscribers and get tips from Sephora’s experts. I signed up for the July event which takes place this week and am excited to go!

I was really happy about all of the products in this month’s box but the product I was most excited about was the OUAI Wave Spray. OUAI was started by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin and I keep seeing the products mentioned everywhere! I’ve wanted to try out OUAI’s products for a while so I was really excited that I finally had a chance to through Play.

You can sign up for the waitlist for Play here (it’s worth it!) and read my other unboxing posts here or posts about beauty samples here.

      I think they are planning to expand internationally in the future!
