Target Beauty Box April 2016

What Is The Target Beauty Box?

This box is NOT a subscription. It is a monthly box that is released typically every month and is sold on a first come first serve bases. As it is becoming more well known they are selling out sooner and sooner!

The Subscription

Box Items: A variety of beauty products. Products are released once the box is available for sale so you know what you are purchasing.

Cost: $5-7/month (depends on the box)


Everything arrives in a black box.

Inside was this card that contained a coupon for a beauty product purchase from Target over $15.

And here is the rest of inside of the box :) I LOVE tissue paper in my boxes!


Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Ultra Light SPF 30 (2 fl oz) - $1.99

I love getting sunscreen! I just only wish this one had an SPF higher than 30. Even though it says it has a light tropical scent, the smell is still more on the "sunscreen" side. But it does feel less thick than most sunscreens so that is nice!

Simple Sensitive Skin Experts Cleansing Facial Wipes (7 wipes) - $1.00

It's a bummer there are only 7 wipes, but my skin is quite sensitive so I am excited to try this and see how they work!

Pantene Air Spray Brushable Flexible Hold (1.0 oz) - $0.78

I don't know too much about Pantene, but I am always up for more hairspray. My only worry is it is not strong enough as it is only rated a 2 on the bottle. My hair is not very damaged and doesn't hold curl or anything well, so I always need maximum hold. But it won't hurt to try!

Marlowe Body Butter (1 fl oz) - $1.12

I am excited to try this body butter especially because it smells a little bit like cinnamon! A little bit also goes a long way so i can see this sample lasting for a long time. My hands definitely felt soft after applying it as well.

CeraVe Healing Ointment (.085 oz) - $0.25

This product seems like it was made for me! This ointment is supposed to great for those with very dry skin. I can't wait to try this out. I only wish that the sample was larger. It will last a little bit, bit not nearly as long as I would like.

Cover Girl 372 Divine Wine (3.5 g) - $6.24

This is the first full sized product in this box! Unfortunately this isn't a color I would wear, but word on the street is I can exchange it for a different color at any Target store. But I might have missed the deadline. I just didn't want to OPEN it until I found out if I could exchange it. I am just not a huge purple fan when it comes to makeup.

Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask (one mask) - $4.80

I have yet to try out a mask so I am really excited for this one! From reading some reviews, it seems like some people are considering this a "full size" product even though most that I found are 5 count or 10 count boxes. 

Maybelline Dream Velvet Gel Whipped Foundation Classic Ivory (??) - ??

I am quite curious to see what a "gel whipped foundation" is like. However since it's a foil packet I have to be careful when I open it because I don't know what to do with the extra! With a baby in the house that can easily spell disaster. I do think this color will match my skin tone though so I am very excited about this.

Final Thoughts

I am curious to see what the total comes out to be for this box. So let's do that first.

The totals of the products:
  • Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport SPF 30 - $1.99
  • Simple Sensitive Skin Facial Wipes  - $1.00
  • Pantene Air Spray - $0.78

  • Marlowe Body Butter - $1.12

  • CeraVe Healing Ointment - $0.25
  • Cover Girl 372 Divine Wine - $6.24

  • Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask - $4.80

  • Maybelline Dream Velvet Gel Whipped Foundation (??) - ??
The total value of the bag came to $16.18

I spent $7 for this Target box so I definitely got more than I paid for. I will be able to use most of these products which makes it even more worth the money. HOWEVER, I hear that this is quite a low value for a Target box, so I am slightly disappointed about that. I will most likely try again in May and see if the value gets better.

All in all though I liked the products and am happy that everyone came out to be worth more than I paid for the box.

What are your thoughts on this Target Box?
