After a long 10 month break Target finally decided to sell another batch of their famous beauty boxes. This time it included five products, two of which were full-sized, and the rest came in very generous travel-sized format. As always, this box cost only $5, but this time those of us who don’t have their rewards card had to pay another $5 for shipping, which was later refunded back to the original card used for the initial purchase. I was honestly prepared to pay $10 for it, so I would have been totally fine even if they didn’t refund it.
HOW IT WORKS
Beauty Box by Target is different from a typical subscription service, because the boxes are sold on a first come first serve basis. These boxes are released irregularly, and usually cost $5 + free S&H. The products are generally a mix of full-sized and deluxe-sized drugstore brands.

L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara – A few weeks ago I was sharing my Mom’s favorite makeup items, and this mascara is one of them! I just love the way it makes her lashes so long and defined. As much as I would love to keep it for myself, I’m sure she will appreciate it if I pass it on to her
COVERGIRL Smoochies Sizzle Gloss – Nice size and color, but way too much shimmer for my liking. This will make a great stocking stuffer!
TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray – Normally I don’t use texturizing sprays because they make my hair super dry and hay-like, but one of my friends highly recommended this one when I told her about Target Beauty Box, so I’m going to give it a shot. What about you girls, have you tried it?
Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo – This is a generous travel-sized sample, and it seems like a nice one! This dry shampoo uses natural tapioca powder to absorb excess oil and the formula infused with white grapefruit and mint extracts doesn’t contain any parabens or colorants. Doesn’t that sound intriguing?
Jergens BB Cream Light – Last but not least, everyone received a sample of this new hit product from Jergens, and I already raved about it in my latest Birchbox review. You know me, I’m super against tanning, even fake tanning, but I made an exception for this body BB cream, because it made my skin look and feel amazing.
I’m always impressed with Target Beauty Boxes, wouldn’t you agree that all of this is a steal for $5? It’s like paying $1 for each one of these products! The box itself has no markings, so it can be re-used for gifting. I hope Target starts releasing these regularly because it provides a great opportunity for everyone to try some of the best drugstore products without having to buy full-sized versions.
