Target Beauty Box Unboxing

target beauty box

Hey lovelies,

It’s Saturday! Anyone have any awesome plans for the weekend? Personally, I’ll probably be relaxing (when I can) and catching up on some reading. I might add a glass (or 2) of wine here and there. I know that usually on Saturdays I do swatches, but today I’m going to do an unboxing because I have several subscription posts coming up soon, so I might as well add this one into the mix!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Target beauty box, it’s a beauty box that has no strings attached to it, and they are typically between $5-7 with free shipping. If you have a Target debit card, you can get an extra 5% off! These beauty boxes always sell out super quickly. Seriously, if you see a blogger announce that there is a new one live on Target.com, don’t hesitate. Put it in your cart and buy it.

I have never been disappointed in any of these boxes. They are typically higher value, and this one was no different. The overall value of this box is $35, and I only paid $7 for it, shipping and all.

This is what I received in my box, and I am so excited! Some of these things are new on the market, and some are already staples in my beauty routine. So, if you’re interested in what I got and my thoughts, just keep reading.

Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing Mask $11.99 This is a full sized item! I rarely get full sized hair products in any beauty subscription, so I was really happy about this one! I actually just ran out of my usual deep conditioner, so now I have a new one to try. I did smell this one already, and it smells heavenly! I use hair masks quite often because I have color treated hair, so I’m already itching to try this one out.

Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Radiance Spray: Another hair sample, but I’m fine with it. I actually love Fekkai hair products, and they’re a wee bit pricey, so I really enjoy the deluxe sample sized things Target sends out in their beauty boxes. This is a spray that is supposed to be used before you go out into the sun to help protect it and give it shine. This product does seem to have a bit of oil and shine in it, so if you have fine hair, you might want to put this in your hands rather than just spraying it on.

Olay Active Botanicals Day Lotion and Toner: Normally, I don’t enjoy tiny skin care related samples. However, this line from Olay is brand new, and it’s intrigued me. Both these samples have snow mushroom in them, which is supposed to draw out impurities in the skin. I’m curious to see if these will be awesome, and I may look into buying the full size of the moisturizer if it works on my dry skin.

Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara: This is another full sized item, and one that I already use very often! I love this mascara. The wand is very thin and reminiscent of the Benefit Roller lash mascara, and this formula actually lengthens and volumizes my poor wimpy lashes.

Crest 3D white 1 hour express whitening strip: This is another thing that is a staple in my routine. Well, about twice a year. If you haven’t noticed, I am am an avid coffee enthusiast (a better way of saying caffeine addict) and coffee is delicious and stains the teeth. So, I do turn to whitening strips every now and then to take away the stains. I have not tried the one hour express strips though, and I am excited to see if these truly do whiten teeth in an hour.

Overall, I’m ecstatic about this beauty box and I cant wait to start trying things out. If there’s anything that you would like to see a separate review on, please let me know! Usually, when I try things out in these subscriptions I will mention my favorite ones in my monthly favorites videos on Youtube.

Did any of you pick up the Target beauty box this time? What are your thoughts? Chat with me in the comments about it, or about anything!

Have a good day, lovelies.

Unboxing: Target Summer Beauty Box

summer target beauty box

Hey beauties,

Today I have an unboxing! I will be showing you all what I got in my Target Beauty Box this Summer. Every season, Target releases beauty boxes that have deluxe sample sizes and full sized products, and are pretty high value. They are usually $7, and the shipping is free, and if you have a Target debit card you can snag an extra 5% off! There is no true “subscription” with this box, and it’s on a first come, first serve basis. I will say that these boxes sell out very quickly every time they’re released, so if you ever see one in stock and want it, just get it.

This season’s bag was valued at $40, and I received 5 items in my bag. I think that for the most part everyone received the same scheme of products with some variances here and there.

Without further adieu, let’s get on to the the unboxing!

IMG_7259

1. Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Creme– Deluxe sample size valued at about $6. I love Fekkai products! They’re a bit out of my price range, so getting big samples like these makes me so happy. I’m really excited to try this one because it claims to tame frizzy hair, and boy do I need that in the Summer time in the humid South. This is one of the products that I’ve seen vary between boxes.

2. Olay Regenerist Luminous Hydraswirl Eye Cream– This is actually the product that caught my eye the most when I ordered this box online. This is a full sized product and retails at $23! I have tried this out a few times, and I do like it. It’s unscented and gives a nice glow to my under eyes, cancelling out the purple that’s naturally under my eyes.

3. Sinful Colors Nail Polish “Boom Boom”– The retail value of this is $1.99, and though this is a lovely pink shade, I don’t wear pink nail polishes often. I may be setting this one aside for an upcoming giveaway *wink wink*

4. Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in “Gladiolus-” Retail of this is $8, and it’s full sized! I haven’t had a chance to wear this shade on my lips yet, but I have swatched it and it felt very smooth and buttery!

5. Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Wipes– There are 3 of these in the box and that comes to about a little over $1. I have used one the pads already, and I put it to the test with a deep burgundy shade, and it cleared all the polish off in with one pad! I was impressed, and I will use these up. Will I repurchase? Probably not for awhile since I have loads of acetone stored away, but these are very nice.

Total Box Value: $40

There were also 2 coupons in this box, one for $3 off a $15 beauty purchase at Target (can also be stacked with manufacturers coupons as well) and a $1 off a Revlon product.

Overall, I’m really happy with this seasons beauty box! Did you snag one or more of these boxes? What did you get? Will you be getting one in the future?

As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you are all having wonderful days!

Target Fall Beauty Box Review

IMG_2440

I typically miss out on the sample and beauty boxes Target releases and every time I am a sad panda. So, when I was browsing and saw that they had released their fall beauty box and they weren’t sold out I immediately ordered it. I was beyond excited when this pretty box arrived in my mailbox today and I couldn’t wait to open it up and see what was inside and show you all!
Let me begin by saying this box was $7 shipped to me. I have a Target debit card though, so I don’t know if shipping costs would apply to anyone without a Target debit card. I personally judge beauty boxes/subscriptions by what’s inside, if I like the products or at least most of them, and if the overall value exceeds what I paid for the box. If I’m paying $7 for a sample box and the products inside are worth less or just a little more than what I paid for the box itself, I feel kind of ripped off.

Inside the box:

First thing I noticed about this box was the beautiful coupon it came with. I love coupons. The cool thing about Target coupons is that you can stack their store coupons with a manufacturers coupon and use cartwheel (mobile app) on top of it creating an amazing deal. I’ve scored free and really cheap makeup many times stacking coupons and cartwheel offers.
The next things that caught my eye were the full sized Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in white and The Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick in “Blushing Harmony.” I use the jumbo eye pencil almost everyday as an eyeshadow base, so I was pretty excited to get another one of them, because having extras of things I use on an almost daily basis is never a bad thing, in my opinion. The Colour Riche lipstick is also beautiful. “Blushing Harmony” is a very deep rosy nude glossy type of lipstick. It’s not a very sticky formula though. It’s also not matte or a long wearing liquid lipstick. It can be worn alone or on top of lipstick. The value of the eye pencil is $4-5 and the gloss $8-9 so those two products alone made me feel like I got my money’s worth with the coupon.

Next thing I noticed was the set of nifty BB cream cushions. Laneige is a Korean brand and these BB creams are exclusive to Target and have a high SPF. The estimated value of this is between $14-15 and there is are light, medium, and dark cushions as well as the SPF cushion. I’m extremely excited about this particular sample. I have been trying to find a BB cream that just “wows” me for the longest time now, and getting a sample that has several different skin tones in it is amazing. Many beauty and sample boxes tend to only include one shade, and we all know people come in very many different colors and we are not all one shade. The light shade will obviously be the one I try. I will probably gift the others to friends or family.

Fekkai Salon Blow Out Dry Shampoo (1.7 oz) This is not a full sized product, but the value of it is still about $8, and dry shampoos always make me happy. I feel like they probably make anyone with hair and a life happy. I can’t and don’t wash my hair everyday. Even before I had kids, it just makes me hair brittle and dry if I wash it constantly. I can’t wait to try this one out.

Loreal Paris Elnett Hairspray (2.2 oz) This is valued at around $2 for the sample size. I know there are still so many bloggers and hairstylists that use and swear by this hairspray. I have even heard my mom talking about it when she talks about the Aqua Net glory days of big hair. I have never gotten a chance to try it out for myself though because I am partial to my Vidal Sassoon hairspray or my Garnier anti humidity hairspray. However, if I like this little guy I may switch it up.

Overall, from what I have researched the total value of this box is around $38, which is over 5 times what I paid at $7! I feel this was definitely worth it, personally. I haven’t received any box/bag from a subscription service that has had that valuable of a box compared to what you initially pay in so long. It gave me a bit of hope in some weird sense. Haha. This box is a one time purchase, but I will totally be on the lookout for the next one they release. I hope it’s soon! If you have received this box as well, please feel free to comment with your own thoughts and overall opinions.
