June Beauty Box by Target

In late April I received an email from Target inviting me to try their Beauty Box. The price of the box was $5.00. There was nothing that said it was going to be a recurring box or just a one time thing. I had no idea when the box would be sent either. Turns out I didn't receive the box until the end of June. From the time of the email til I received the box was about 7 weeks. That's a long time to wait. My thought is Target is a huge business and for sure they will include more than $5 worth of goodies in their box.

The card in the box says "Welcome to the first edition of Beauty Box by Target". We are creating a monthly program that will let you receive samples of 4-5 products from a few of our favorite brands. Some brands you'll know, and some you may not have heard of yet. You will also get a special offer that will have you looking gorgeous for less. Sounds great to me, especially for $5!

The Good:

The price: This is the lowest price I've seen on any beauty box.

Product availability: I'm assuming all the products they send will be available at Target.

Discount: They include a coupon to use for a discount on a future purchase. Hopefully they will have longer expiration dates.

Reusable Box: The items come in a white box with no markings. You can reuse it for mailing, storing, gifting, etc.

The Not So Good:

Skip: undetermined.



This was the outside of the box. Target logos made out of makeup.

Target goodies!

They also included a coupon for $3 off a $15 purchase. The problem is it expired the same week the box arrived at my house. Even worse it expired the day after I came home from vacation. I wasn't about to run out to Target after being gone for a week. If they do more boxes I would like to see a coupon that lasts longer.

Contents of box with approximate value:

.17 oz. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. Value = $4.69

2 oz. Fekkai Glossing Cream. Value = $12.50

Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Scent Razor Pack. Value = $10.99

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in Sweet Tart-Tan. Value = $8.50

.025 oz. L'Oreal Magic B.B. Cream in Light. Value = $0.27

The total value of this Target Beauty Box is $36.95.  Not only is it incredible for a $5 investment but it's items I will use. I'm actually going to pass the La Roche product on to the teenager, with summers hot weather here she is experiencing some breakouts. I'm keeping the other products for myself. I really love the Sally Hansen polish strips and I'm loving this Tartan design. The Fekkai product will help keep my flyaway in check when I'm driving topless this summer. WHAT?? Ha Ha. I have convertible car and it's convertible weather here in California. 

I really hope Target continues with this beauty box or even food boxes for that matter. I really enjoyed this box and if they keep the $5 price that would be fan-freakin-tastic!

    3. How was the weather in Orlando? I went to the North Oregon Coast. We rented a beach condo and enjoyed the cool beach weather.

  2. Bloody hot! Our AC in the car died and driving down the highway with the windows closed was torture! I think I lost like 45 pounds :(

    Ooh, that sounds a lot better than mines! :) I am glad you had fun though!
