Great news for all of us West Coasters. Play! by Sephora is finally open to all of us now. For those who haven’t heard about it, Sephora’s Play box is a subscription box like Ipsy or Birchbox. For $10 a month (plus tax in some states), you get five deluxe samples of products sold at Sephora, plus a fragrance bonus each month. Also included is a “Play Book” that is packed with tips, tricks, and helpful advice on how to use your samples. There is a “Play Pass” that can be brought to your local Sephora for a free one-on-one tutorial with a beauty expert. You can also redeem your “Play Pass” for 50 bonus Beauty Insider points with any in-store purchase during the same store visit. Just remember that each ticket may only be used once and expires after 30 days. Play! by Sephora has been around for about six months in selected markets. They have been slowly expanding, but the May 2016 box will be available to the Contiguous US. (Not sure when Alaska and Hawaii will be included.) I have seen some of the previous boxes, so I jumped at the chance to sign up as soon as I was able.
There is a waiting list, so you will have to hurry if you want to sign up in time for May’s box. I can not wait!
