Target Best of the Class Beauty Box Review Info

Each box comes with an info card and a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty department purchase of $15 or more.

Target Best of the Class Beauty Box Review Yes To

Yes To Cucumbers 10–Count Wipes – Value $2.99

Both of the Back to School Target boxes included facial wipes (the other box include Burt’s Bees). I love both of the brands, so I’m happy! (Plus the travel sizes of the facial wipes are actually better for me since sometimes I find the full-size versions can dry out before I use all of them).

Target Best of the Class Beauty Box Review Max

wet n wild Max Volume Plus Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $4.99

Wet n Wild reminds me so much of middle school and buying makeup for the first time! I had to try this mascara out for nostalgia reasons alone! I was expecting mega volume based on the name, but I would say the length and volume were pretty average. I also love when a mascara helps curl your lashes too, but this one left my lashes flat.

CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Give me Guava – FULL SIZE! Value $7.99

(Colors may vary). I think this is my favorite item in the box! The formula isn’t sticky at all, and it adds a natural-looking amount of shimmer and shine!

Target Best of the Class Beauty Box Review Fashion Tape

Hollywood Fashion Tape (6 pieces) – Value $1

This tape can be used to close blouse gaps, hide bra straps, secure necklines, keep straps from slipping, adjust hems, etc.

Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Illuminating Dry Oil Spray – FULL SIZE! Value $6

This is a dry oil spray that can be applied on either damp or dry hair to increase shine. The mist is very fine, so I didn’t have to worry about over-doing it. I like the formula – the scent is a strong tropical scent though, so it may not be for everyone!

Target Best of the Class Beauty Box Review Goody

Bathery Pumice Stone – Value – $2

Goody Ouchless Elastics (3) – Value $1?

These are both great basics to have on hand. Nothing too exciting, but very useful!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $26 – amazing for a $5 box full of full-size items! I’m always impressed with Target Beauty Boxes, and this is another winner in my book! What do you think of the Target Head of the Class Beauty Box? Were you able to grab one before they sold out?

  1. This box was so good that I still smile when I think of it!

  2. What an awesome box of goodies! I like these boxes because you get basics like the hair elastics and pumice stone that don’t come in a regular beauty box sub. I always get the Target boxes because I use everything in them. Don’t get me wrong – I like high-end makeup and beauty products, but for usefulness, these boxes always rock!

  3. This was my first Target beauty box and I love it. I have tried to snag their last two boxes and would always be too late. I will definitely get use out of every item. Also, thank you to my Subscription Addiction for the email. So glad I signed up to receive them. 🙂

  4. I loved this box! I bought two of it and two of the other one target had. I plan on using everything in them as well. Such a great value!!! I will the wipes to work for those day when I need an extra pick me up. Same thing with the lip glosses. I was so thrilled when I saw this box was coming out. I totally missed it a few months back so I made sure to buy two of each this time 🙂 Love it! Now if only I get them on the regular and not just when they feel like it.

  5. Kicking myself, I didn’t scan all the way down and just ordered the first box and missed out on this one.

  6. I bought both boxes!! Well worth the 5$ for each.

  7. I was able to snag both boxes. I received his box this past Monday. Even though they were shipped the same day I still haven’t received my honor roll box yet. Sent via usps and has been “stuck” in the same location for a week

  8. I really like the lipgloss too! Great consistency and color. I’ve never tried fashion tape before but have several button up shirts that like to pop open so hopefully it will solve that problem. The cucumber face wipes kind of my my skin tingle in a weird way- maybe I’ll swap them.

    • The tape won’t help with that problem. I have a problem with having button downs gap and the best thing I ever did was take the shirts to the tailor and have a snap sewn in. The double stick tape is for taping skin to clothing so nothing shifts or emergency pants hemming. It basically double sided scotch tape with I wee bit more hold. For myself, fabric to fabric in an area where stress occurs never bloody works!

  9. I got one of each box but they haven’t been mailed out yet….. I hope soon.

  10. I got this one. The day before ordering I decided against buying a full size Hollywood Fashion Tape and I needed a pumice stone and was running low on hair bands. Kismet!

  11. I got two of these, probably since I wasn’t able to get one of each box, as the other one sold out quicker. I should have stuck to just one 🙂 I’m happy with what I got for my $10, though. I coupon, so I’ll find manufacturer’s coupons to pair with the $3/$15 Target coupon to get another fantastic deal in the store.

  12. I ordered both of Targets beauty boxes. I must say its the best value in the subscription box world. Granted not expensive brands, but not crappy brands either. I really wish they would do them more often, or started a monthly box.

  13. Ugh, just noticed mine is missing the lip gloss.

  14. I haven’t tried any of the Yes wipes on my face. I do use them on my body after working outside in my garden etc. I find it to be refreshing. I kept the wipes and a couple of other items from this box and sent the rest off to a fellow commenter.

    • That’s a great use for the face wipes! I bartend and constantly have sticky arms and legs… I can put these in my bag and whip them out as needed.

      • Brilliant, I also bartend, and the stickiness drives me nuts!!!! I’m absolutely doing this.

  15. I got this box a few days ago and very happy with the contents, just a heads up to anyone using the wipes, I broke out in a rash after using them and after reading reviews on Amazon I see that this is fairly common. I do not have sensitive skin so anyone who does may want to be extra careful! I’m not sure how truly hypoallergenic they are.

    • I tried the Yes to Blueberries wipes a while back. Had the same issue – small rash/irritation under the eyes, by the cheekbones. I have sensitive skin. Cleared up after about 30 minutes, but had me wondering how Hypoallergenic they are. I may pass mine along or keep them in a drawer to clean makeup off my hands.

  16. I got the spray and put it out for swap because god knows we don’t need any more hair products around here. But I’m intrigued about the scent, as my daughter was just telling me she wants products that smell like summer (that coconut/tropical scent of sunscreen, I think she means). Would you say that that’s how this spray smells? Does the smell linger?

    As for the mascara, I had it up for swap but my daughter opened it, looked at the brush, and she could tell immediately it wouldn’t work for her (she also needs a brush that curls her eye lashes). It seems that, at 13, she’s become a mascara brush expert 🙂 So it’s still for swap, but at a reduced price.

    • I LOVE the scent of the spray, it definitely smells like summer to me, but it doesn’t have a coconut/sunscreen smell . I actually even sprayed it on my arms and rubbed it in as a sort of body spray because I love the scent so much.

    • To me, it smells like a combination of pineapple and plumeria. I used it after a shower using that great pineapple scrub from the MSA/Klover box and the overall effect is pretty heavenly.

  17. Great recap, Liz!! I too was able to snag this one and will use ALL the contents, so that’s a major win =)
