Target Beauty Box Review – April 2016
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it sells out very quickly. (This box is currently sold out).

Each box comes with an info card and a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more. (Tip thanks to MSA readers – save these to use on future Target Beauty Boxes!)
This formula rubs in clear easily, isn’t greasy, and has a great summery scent. It’s a decent sample size too – perfect for travel.
Marlowe. No. 022 Body Butter – 1 oz Value $1.25
This might be my favorite discovery in the box. I sampled the Marlowe brand before thanks to the January Target Beauty Box. Their formulas are paraben and phthalate free, made in the USA, and not tested on animals.
The scent in this body butter is very subtle, and I like it, plus the formula is really moisturizing without making my skin feel greasy.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes – 7 wipes Value $1.25
I’ve sampled these before and they work well. I like that they are gentle on my skin and I always can use more makeup remover wipes!
Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask – Value $4.80
This sheet mask is a little different than most sheet masks – it comes in two parts:
That works great for me because my face doesn’t always match up well with the eye, nose and mouth holes on the one-sheet-fits-all masks.
And here is what I look like with it on:
Just kidding! Actually, I look way too scary to ever post on the site. Like scare-my-husband-even-when-I-warn-him-I’m-wearing-a-mask, scary.
(Thanks, EC, for the Mrs. Doubtfire mask comment, though – I needed this gif in my life!)
This mask is a 30-minute one. A little longer than I would have liked, but it left my skin feeling super soft and refreshed, so I can’t complain!
(If you like Laneige, Target Beauty Boxes are for you – the brand is in almost every box!)
Pantene Airspray Hairspray – 1 oz Value $1
This hairspray has a pleasant floral/fruity scent, and it gives a medium hold without any stickiness.
CeraVe Healing Ointment – 2.5 g Value $1
I just got this sample in the Walmart Spring Beauty Box as well! More info on the formula:
No fragrance added, Dermatologist Tested, Dye-free, Hypoallergenic, Noncomedogenic, Phthalate-free, Steroid-free, Sulfate-free
And most importantly, it works well! The sample is pretty tiny, but a little goes a long way, so it works out!
COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Yummy Pink – FULL SIZE Value $6
This cotton candy pink is a pretty wearable shade for me. Here it is swatched:
The finish is a semi-matte, and moisturizing. Good pigment, too – I like it!
Maybelline® Dream Velvet Foundation – Sample
This sample was enough for an entire face application, and I really liked the feel of the “velvet gel-whipped foundation.” The color is a little too peachy for my skin tone, but I was impressed with the coverage and finish of the formula! (On the back of this card is a $2 coupon for any Dream Velvet or Maybelline New York face product.)
And the hairspray came with a coupon too:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $17. That’s on the lower end for Target Beauty Boxes, but still great. Plus the $3 Target Beauty coupon always makes this box worth it! And this month I’ll use every single item!
