Sephora entered the beauty sample box arena last year and started out slow. The “Players” had to sign up and wait for an email that invited them to the program. Sephora now seems to have distribution and shipping established and as of today, you can simply visit the website and subscribe. The “Play” by Sephora sample box is $10 per month (plus tax, including shipping) and you can cancel anytime. You must be a Beauty Insider member to subscribe.
The April Play box included a Sephora gel blush, A sample of MILK Sunshine Oil, a CLINIQUE Pep Start Eye Cream sample, A Derek Lam 10 Crosby 2 A.M. eau de parfum spray, a Sunday Riley GOOD GENES sample and a NARS Satin Lip Pencil – it’s actually the same one we got last year for the birthday gift. It ships on the 20th of each month and comes to your mailbox. I like the fact that the products are all new or at least relevant. You end up getting products that aren’t lame like you tend to get in some of the other sample boxes. My favorites from this one are the gel blush and the Sunday Riley GOOD GENES. I actually saw a difference in my skin shortly after I applied it! It is made with lactic acid that helps remove dead skin much more gently than glycolic acid. If you want to the Sephora box, I would sign up ASAP because you never know when they will close it.
