Today, I unwrap the Target box!

My target box actually came on Friday evening (scroll down for review 🙂 )! But I’ve been out and about since then! My Love with Food box also came (such delicious goodies), but I will post that review soon! I promise!

Do you ever get into those days where you just need to heal? That is exactly how I felt, so Saturday morning, I packed up my bags and left for NOVA (northern Virginia). I just got back from spending a lovely day with Arkie. We went to the movies, had Indian food at Aditi Indian Dining, watched Ironman 3 in the cinemas, shopped in TJ Max (Arkie had to pull me out of the store), and then just ate and watched Mindy Project & Big Bang Theory. Oh and I forgot to mention facial masks! I haven’t had a sleepover in a while and this was much needed.

Target Box

Pretty happy to see this box sitting there waiting to be opened!

Target just recently launched the idea of a Beauty Box. Read about it here.  And I was happy to find what was inside the box (for just $5.00)! I hope others were just as enthusiastic as me because… well I’m sure they’ll be looking at reviews and feedback from us.

Nicely packaged box and look! A coupon for $3 off of any Beauty product @ Target. I think it expires pretty soon, so I better go!

Full/Deluxe Sized Samples

Gillete Venus & Olay Razor (1 ct/ $8.99) – excited to try this out!

Fekkai Glossing Cream (2 oz: $12.50 / full size 4 oz: $25.00) – A leave in style cream that seemed to take away some of the frizz I have at the ends of my hair. The only suggestion I have is to not use to much! I definitely applied too much the first time and it was too heavy and oily, weighing my hair down and making it look like I hadn’t washed my hair! haha.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips (1 pack/ $7.59-$9.09) – I really liked the design that I received, a pink/brown argyle design. However, I’m not much of a nail person, so maybe this will go into a giveaway box 🙂

Sample Packets

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment (0.17 oz / $4.65) 

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Liquid BB Cream (.025 oz/ $0.19) – I am no where close to being this shade (LIGHT)… so this will not be helpful.

I paid $5.00 for this box and received around $35.00 (this did not include the $3.00 coupon) worth of beauty products! That’s probably the best value box I’ve seen. Of course, this is still in its test phase. I’m not sure if they’d raise the prices or change things. Looking towards the future, I’d definitely hope that Target will include some sort of option where you can at least specify what skin-tone you are. A profile that would allow boxes to tailor to your personal beauty needs/concerns would be wonderful! I’m very happy with this box. What did you think?

  1. This looks awesome! I’m gonna live vicariously through your boxes. And I’m glad you had a great sleepover with Arkie! Sounds like fun! Hopefully we’ll be able to do it when I come visit 🙂

    • Wow, you just used a hashtag. So ahead of times, Markie. I feel ancient near you 😛

      And yes, sleepover when you’re here! I’ll bring out all my facial SUPPLIES! And we’ll rent free movies !

  2. Jeez I’m glad I’m not the only person who isn’t a nail person. 😛 Sometimes I feel like I am the only blogger who doesn’t paint her nails. Thanks for the tip about the glossing cream because I tend to be that person who uses too much on the first try. I’m so excited to get this box… but also really bummed that the coupon expires in just a few days because I don’t plan on doing a Target haul for a few weeks. Anyway, great review!

    • I believe my coupon expires 6/22/13! Not enough time at all! But the good thing is that you can also use the coupon online, too… Hope you get your box soon! 🙂

    • Yes you have! Lies! Actually, really?! Well if you don’t have any sleepovers between now and next June… guess you’ll be having your first one avec moi!
