I haven’t been much of a subscription box type of gal…until just recently. When subscription boxes first started out, I think companies were doing it, shooting for mass income each month, and they really weren’t worth their weight in gold.
But, now…well, let’s say, some subscription box services have upped the ante on the sub box game, making it more beneficial for those of us who subscribe. They even provide subbers with options and many even give sneak peaks for those who can’t wait til the box comes.
I, myself, am a surprise lover, so I try to stay away from spoilers.
Have you heard of the Target Beauty Box? The awesome thing about the Target Beauty Box is that you don’t have to subscribe…and the downfall is that you might forget to get in while it’s available – and you could miss out if it sells out.
It’s well into May, though and the April Beauty Box is still available. It costs only $7 and, in my opinion, it was worth every penny. Here’s what you get:
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser – 0.5 oz
Daily cleanser with ceramide-3 and prebiotic Thermal Water gently cleanses without leaving pore-clogging residue.
Sally Hansen Double-Duty Base & Top Coat – 0.45 oz
2-in-1 strengthening formula preps and protects with nylon & pro-vitamin B5 for long-lasting, chip-resistant nails.
Tip: Wear it alone between manicures for a professional look
HASK Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner – 1.57 oz
Hydrating argan oil works to restore and soften dry, damaged, chemically treated or over-processed hair.
Dr Teals Lavender Foaming Bath – 3 oz
Unwind with essential oils that help soothe the senses, relax tense muscles and provide relief from stress.
Why not? Make it a weekly ritual for healthy body and mind.
eb5 Facial Cleanser – 0.35 oz
Soap-free, non-foaming formula exfoliates with lactic acid and nourishes with oat protein and vitamins E & B5.
Rimmel Colour Precise White Eyeliner
Colored liquid liner with a super-precise applicator for flawless, highly pigmented lines—bold or fine.
Hint: Use this for a new take on the cat eye. Apply above or below for a bold look.
Banana Boat Dry Balance SPF 30 – 1 oz
Soak up the vitamin D. SPF 30 with a matte finish makes for smart sun care without shine.
- Number of Pieces: 7
Of course, everything that comes in the box is sample size, but seven products for $7? I take that back, the nail polish and eye pencil were full size and worth the $7 alone. At $1 a piece, this box was a win for me.
But, it may not be for you. You might not like these products, and that’s okay. That’s the beauty of the Target Beauty Boxes. Unlike a subscription service, you can choose to buy them each month or you can choose not to.
May’s Target Beauty Box was a little more expensive. I wasn’t mad, and quickly purchased it when I saw what came inside:
Nexxus Shampoo & Conditioner- 1 each, .3 oz
Caviar Protein Complex helps replenish moisture to dry, brittle hair for a mane that’s soft and smooth
ACURE Pore-Minimizing Red Clay Mask- 1 oz
Moroccan red clay draws out impurities while argan stem cells hydrate and tone for a bright complexion
Tip: Remove mask before it dries completely to get all the benefits without over-drying skin.
Nubian Heritage Bath Bombs- 2 ct
Dream about a tropical getaway while coconut oil and papaya help naturally hydrate and revitalize skin.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Lipstick- .24 oz
High-pigment color glides on glossy and dries to a matte finish that won’t dry out your pout.
Trick: Use a lip liner beforehand to define the shape and keep the color contained.
Vichy Pore-Purifying Clay Mask- .23 oz
White clay helps remove excess oil, while aloe vera and mineralizing thermal water hydrate and strengthen skin.
Nexxus Vitall 8-in-1 Masque- 1.5 oz
Blend of coconut oil, soybean oil and keratin offers intensive treatment to help nourish and repair hair.
How To: After shampooing, apply and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse. Use weekly or as needed.
Guess Dare Fragrance for Women- .04 oz
Notes of kumquat, jasmine and coconut palm create a fruity-floral aroma that’s sophisticated and modern.
Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish- 1.69 oz
Skin-smoothing body polish with shea butter, almond oil, peach seed powder and sugar exfoliates dry skin.
Tip: Use before applying sunless tanner for flawless color. Don’t forget elbows and knees!
- Number of Pieces: 8
The Wet n Wild liquid lipstick and the clay mask is worth the $10 for the box alone. And then you get a bunch of other samples. I can’t wait to get mine!
