This is my third Target box and I am really liking what I am seeing from these boxes so far! I love that there are both sample and full size products. This is the October box, and I know it is December now, but I am trying to get all caught up with everything!
The Target Beauty Box is a one-time purchase monthly box that includes deluxe and full sized beauty products that you can find at Target and of course other retailers.
Here is a BREAKDOWN of the OCTOBER goodies:
1. Derma-e Hydrating Day Creme– Value for 0.5oz = $6.50
This cream retails for $25.99 for a full 2oz size jar. This moisturizer is made to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It is ideal for dry skin that needs long-lasting moisture throughout the day. This product is great becasue it is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free. In all honesty, I didn’t like this product because of the way it smelled and it felt a little thick to be putting on my face for daytime use.
2. Laneige BB Cushion – Value for 0.21oz = $27.20
This is just a sample size, but the full 1.05oz size retails for $34. This sample came with 4 little samples of each color that they offer which is pretty cool. I don’t use a product like this on a normal basis so I’m glad that I was able to try it through the box. While I did like the product, I probably wouldn’t buy it for $34!
3. ChapStick Total Hydration in Rose Petal – Value = $4.99
This is a chapstick with a tint to it. I personaly didn’t like it because I felt that it left too much color on my lips to be used as a chapstick. It did go on smoothly and felt very moisturizing, but I won’t be using it again. I gave this to my mom since I opened and used it already and she LOVES this chapstick!
4. Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer– Value for 2oz = $1.24
The full size 10oz bottle retails for $6.19. This was kind of weird for me because you put it on while you are still wet from the shower. It is a quick absorbing formula that blends with water to lock in the hydration. When I tried this, it was weird because it just felt like I was putting lotion on my wet skin but then when I dried off it felt a little sticky. After getting dressed and going about my day I realized that it did indeed feel like I had actually put lotion on! My skin felt soft and moisturized! I will definitely look into buying a full size.
5. Eden Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner – Value 2oz = $3.90 for both
A full 8oz bottle of the shampoo is $7.79 and the full 8oz bottle of conditioner is also $7.79. This shampoo refreshes the scalp and stimulates the hair follicles. It is supposed to remove all traces of dirt and oil build up. it helps to alleviate dry, itchy scalp. The conditioner is fortified with proteins to decrease split ends and softens hair for less tangles. Both the shampoo and conditioner smell extremely peppermint-y and remind me a lot of Christmas time! The shampoo was ok, nothing special, but with the conditioner I felt like I had to use a lot more than I normally would. It didn’t really do a great job of untangling my hair when I combed it out. I’m not sure I would buy either in the full size.
6. Wet n Wild proline Graphic Marker Eyeliner in Black – Value = $3.99
This is a full size item that came in the Beauty Box! I was hoping that this would be easy to use, but it has a slanted tip which I have no clue how to even use that correctly! I wish that this had been easier to use because I definitely would have used it.
The value of this October Beauty Box is about $48. Since you only pay $10.00 plus shipping (mine was free + 5% off since I have a Target Debit Card) this is a great deal! For this particular box, it had 3 full size items and the rest deluxe size which is perfect for trying out a new product that you may not normally buy.
I think this box is a great deal and I’m looking forward to buying them every month!
