Target had previously send out free beauty bags to customers, and have just started a new subscription service, with boxes mailing out for just $5! I signed up for this bag on May 2, and it took exactly six weeks to arrive at my home. Target has indicated that they are planning to offer a box as a monthly subscription, and for $5 a month, I'm in- just maybe have some better communication, Target? Please?
I found this box via Facebook, and I'm very happy that I did! When it finally arrived in the mail, it was like a nice treat because it took so long to get here, I had nearly forgotten that I ordered it! If you are interested in this box, keep checking back here, or on Target Style's facebook page- I am sure that they will post again when it becomes available as a monthly subscription, and I'll pop in here and let you all know that it's up and running.
Ok, enough with the pomp and circumstance- on to the goodies, right?
I absolutely love it when boxes arrive with an insert card- and this was no exception. One side of the card listed the products inside my box, and the other side had a coupon for $3 off my beauty product purchase of $15. I recently read on Facebook that they are extending the coupon's validity until July 15- a very smart move since the boxes are just now arriving- I was one of the first to receive it! The insert card also tells that Target is planning to make this a monthly thing, and I am excited to hear that!
|Gillette Venus & Ola Razor Kit, with 1 cartridge. Available HERE (different scent); retail value $8.99.|
I've never tried this style of razor before, with the moisture bars. I always use regular shaving cream, but I'm excited to try this out. The scent I received is Sugarberry (razors have scent?), and it smells SO good!

GRADE: 4/5 (those refills are expensive!)
|Fekkai Glossing Cream, 2 oz (small full size); retail value $9.00. Available HERE (or in the Glossing Starter Kit, HERE, $26.09).|
|Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Queen of the Jungle (full size); retail value at Target: $8.50; also available at Amazon for $4.74.|
|Can I have some love for my Giraffe nails?!|
I gave these a try, and I absolutely LOVE them! They went on very easily (I followed the package insert directions to the letter) and look fantastic. I have very short nails (on purpose!), but these would totally work on longer nails as well. There are 16 strips in a pack, and they can be sized down to fit a nail, if necessary, with an orange stick. I will definitely find these in my local store (Target is just as far away from me as my Ulta) and repurchase them.
GRADE: 5/5 Perfection!
|L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Light, 0.025 fl. oz foil pack, retail value $0.20. Available HERE, $7.99 for 1 oz.|
I also received a foil pack sample of L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB cream in Light. I had tried this before (at a friend's House Party, actually), and I really liked it. I'll definitely put this sample to good use (and store the excess for a second use in a little plastic tub!).
|La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment, 0.17 fl oz foil pack, retail value $4.66. Full size available HERE; $36.99 for 1.35 oz.|
The last sample in my box is one that I will give to my daughter. I received La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. This product is a dual action acne treatment, and as there is young lady in my home who is currently in the throws of puberty (attitude and all!), I think she is the right one to try it out. Another item to store in a tiny plastic jar so that we can get multiple uses out of the foil pack!
GRADE 3/5 (neutral, for now)
|Target's FIRST Beauty Box- June 2013|
As always, here's the financial breakdown:
Gilette Venus & Olay Razor: $8.99
Fekkai Glossing Cream: $9.00
Sally Hanson Real Nail Polish Strips: $8.50 (Target) or $4.74
L'Oreal Magic Skin BB Cream: $0.20
La Roche-Posay Efficlar Duo: $4.66
Total retail value: $31.35 (or $27.59 if you use the Target price for the nail strips)
Out of Pocket: $5 (shipping is included)
I'd have to say, that because I can use everything I received, it's a fantastic deal! If I had hated everything, it still would have been worth the $5, since I had never tried these brands before and would know to stay away.
Tell me- did you try the new Target Beauty Box? Would you try this sub if it does become a monthly thing?
