“Must-haves. Can’t-live-withouts. Obsessions. As purveyors of all-things beauty, we at Target Beauty like to keep a lookout for what’s new and now. We’ve put together a few of our faves – all in one convenient box for you to try for yourself. Test’em out and tell us what you think. And if you love them as much as we do, find full-size versions at target.com/beautybox.”
It seems that Target is moving towards offering a monthly beauty box. They haven’t made any official announcement, however Target has been consistently offering a new box every month since July. The products differ from month to month and as always they are available on a first click first serve basis. The Target boxes usually sell out within a few hours of going live on the site, so you have to be on top of it otherwise dear you will miss out. The price has ranged from $5.00 to $10.00 per month. The higher the value of the box, the more the box will cost. At $5 to $10 the Target Beauty Box is a great deal. Best part is all of the products that are included in the box can be purchased at your local Target store.
“So what did you get in your October Target Beauty Box?!” Let’s unbox it and find out!!
Goody Ouchless Silicone Lined Elastics: made without metal for reduced snags & pulls.
————————> One can never own enough elastics, I love that this item was included in the box. I will definitely put these to use.
Covergirl Intensify Me Eyeliner 300: intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama.
——————————->*****BEEP BEEP FULLSIZED PRODUCT ALERT BEEP BEEP!!!! VALUE $6.99*******Not an eyeliner kind of girl, so this will go straight to the give away pile.
Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick: velvety soft formula moisturizes with shea butter and alone for color that last; available in 20 shades
————————> ****BEEP BEEP FULLSIZED PRODUCT ALERT BEEP BEEP!!!! VALUE $8.59****** I received high heels which is a very light pink. First off how cute is the name, I think its fun. The shade high heels is perfect for day and work, if you are a barely there color kind of girl.
RoC Deep Wrinkle Deep Night Cream: lightweight retinol treatment hydrates skin cells and helps reduce the appearance of expression lines and deep wrinkles
———————————->*****BEEP BEEP FULLSIZED PRODUCT ALERT BEEP BEEP!!!! VALUE $20.49*******Holy buckets Target included a $20 full-sized product in the box! I have been using this since I received it and I love it. The formula is light weight and absorbs quickly into the skin. I do not have expression lines yet, but I have notices that my skin is smoother and brighter in the morning. It is a winner in my book.
Acure Morrocan Argan Oil + Stem Cell Triple Repair Shampoo: organic argan oil provides moisture for even the most damaged hair, leaving it soft & manageable
—————————————————–> I have been a fan of the Acure brand since I first got a sample from Birchbox. It tickles me silly to see that they are expanding into hair care, I would love to see an organic sulfate free curly hair shampoo from them in the future. This shampoo smells awesome and it left my hair feeling soft and light.
Acure Morrocan Argan Oil + Stem Cell Triple Repair Conditioner: organic argan oil provides moisture for even the most damaged hair, leaving it soft & manageable
—————————————————> Conditioners are shampoos BFF, this one is very light weight, a little bit of product goes a mighty long way. It left my hair feeling soft and light, bonus it smells amazing too!
Skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butter: super-rich formula quenches dry, parched skin
———————————————–> I am a Minnesota girls and when the temps turn to cold we go a running for the lotion isle at Target. In the winter our skin gets so dry and crackly, body butters are our saving grace. I love the skinfix hand cream and this for a body butter is pretty sweet. It has the think consistency, however it absorbs quickly into the skin without that annoying greasy feeling.
Hello Toothpaste: dye-free, sugar-free paste safely polishes teeth and freshens breath
———————————-> Wait!? What? Umm shouldn’t all toothpaste be sugar free? I thought sugar was a no no for teeth……………….no I am questioning my tooth paste, I think it might be betraying me and secretly hiding sugar in the ingredient list.
Olly Beauty Vitamins: an expert blend of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and collagen that promote healthy eyes, skin & hair
———————————> Grapefruit, they are grapefruit flavored and sadly I AJ had to spit them out, I couldn’t stomach chewing on them, they tasted yucky. Yucky, AJ no buy the full size of these vitamins.
S.W. Basics Certified Organic Body Scrub: gentle exfoliation & deep hydration made from three simple ingredients, sugar, coconut oil & shredded coconut
———————————> I am confused by this product, it is a powder, so I am guessing we need to mix it with water or just plain old apply dry and rub rub in the shower? I should probably read the directions first before I jump in the shower.
Target you out did yourselves. I have to say this is hands down the best most well thought out box to come out of the bulls eye. I am blown away at how practical the items are and that every product in the box is affordable. There is literally something for every girl in the October box and the best part is if you love the sample size you can stroll on over to your local Target to by the full-size product. I can do it on my lunch because I work in downtown Minneapolis, be jealous I can just walk right on over to the flagship corporate Target store (its huge! 2 floors of glorious Targetness! plus they have a cartalater!!!) which is always loads of fun.
The Target Beauty Box is not a subscription service, they are first come first served, if they are sold out then you my friends are out of luck. I just checked target.com and the October box is out of stock. For $10 this box is a great deal, that is if you can get your hands on one, they always sellout like hotcakes. So don’t sit on the beauty fence when you see them, just throw it in your virtual cart and call it a day!
