Each box comes with an info card and a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more.
Hair Food Dry Shampoo – 1.7 oz Value $5
This is sulfate and paraben free, goes on clear, and has a nice scent too! I’m a little overrun with dry shampoos at the moment, but I like this one!
Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream – .5 oz Value $10
This face cream has added fragrance, and I prefer my facial skincare products to be unscented, so I’m not sure that this is for me. The formula itself absorbs almost instantly and I liked how soft my skin felt after applying it. I’d say if you don’t mind fragrance in skincare products, you’ll probably like it!
Goody Ouchless Sweat Stretch Elastics 3 ct – Value $.50?
These Goody Elastics seem to make their way into most Target Beauty Boxes! I think I’m good on hair elastics for a while, so these will go in the donation pile. (Of course, they would make a good stocking stuffer item too!)
CeraVe Eye Repair Cream – .08 oz Value $1.70
I think I’m most excited about the tiniest sample in the box! This eye cream is “Fragrance-free, Hypoallergenic, paraben, sulfate & phthalate-free Gluten-free and not tested on animals.”
The formula is gentle, and I love that the full-size version is only $10.79 – I’ll probably grab it on my next Target trip!
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream – .6 oz Value $12.80
Laneige is another Target Beauty Box staple brand, and I like it! This cream is very hydrating and gentle. (FYI – it is scented as well. It’s a light fresh floral scent).
Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $7.50
I wasn’t too impressed with this mascara. It didn’t give great lash definition at all, and there were clumping issues too. (I had to save it by adding a layer of Too Faced mascara!)
CoverGirl Star Wars Lipstick in Red 30 – FULL SIZE! Value $6
I love that Star Wars is even in the beauty boxes this month! This Star Wars collection has 6 different lipstick shades – 3 on the Dark Side and 3 on the Light Side. From Target: “Discover your dark side with these looks and shades
Create the “Dark Apprentice” lip with Red #30.”
The formula goes on so smoothly, and the color has a ton of pigment. (Swatched in last photo).
Pacifica Love 3 Eye Shadow Trio – FULL SIZE! Value $10
I love the Pacifica brand for their ingredient-conscious formulas. “These colors are formulated without: Animal ingredients (including carmine, beeswax and lanolin), animal testing, talc, FD&C colors, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, propylene glycol, gluten, and peanut oil. 100% Vegan and cruelty-free.”
One issue I’ve had with some Pacifica eye shadows is a lack of pigment. This trio is OK in the pigment department. I had to apply a few strokes to get the colors to show up:
I think this palette will be good for a natural “barely there” look.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $53.50! I think that’s amazing for a $10 box, especially since this one always comes with a coupon I use. My favorite product is the CeraVe Eye Repair Cream, and I’ll use everything with the exception of the mascara (and maybe the OLAY moisture cream).
