Target Beauty Box Back to College Review – August 2016
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it sells out very quickly. (This box is currently sold out).
If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on the next Target Beauty Box, make sure to sign up for the My Subscription Addiction daily newsletter!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Olay Makeup Remover Wet Cloths – (7 Towelettes) Value $1.40
These were gentle my skin and didn’t have any added fragrance! (Bonus points for removing waterproof makeup, too!)
Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant – .5 oz Value $1.20
The scent of this deodorant is light and pleasant, and it dried into an invisible powder finish immediately after applying.
up & up™ Women’s 5-Blade Razor (2 Pack) Value $4
Razors fall into the category of items that I will always want more of (that category also includes toothpaste, hair ties, and chapstick!)
My go-to razor choice is Shick Intuition, but these will be great to have as backup.
CoverGirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $7
I love the minimalist design of this mascara tube, but unfortunately for me, the formula itself wasn’t the best. It took a little too long to dry, and I didn’t get the volume or lash definition I need from a mascara. I’d give this one a C+.
NYC Color Get It All Lip Color in ExtraordinBERRY – FULL SIZE! Value $3
This lip color is heavily pigmented, but it goes on sheer, so you can tone it down if you only want a little color. Here it is swatched:
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – 15 ml Value $5.15
Laneige is a staple in Target Beauty Boxes, and this is such a great brand that I’m always happy to have more! With this mask, you apply a light layer on your skin after cleaning and keep it on overnight. You can remove any excess in the morning – but that’s never been necessary for me. I love waking up to super hydrated skin!
Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips – 1 set Value $1.80
This set includes an upper and lower set of teeth whitening strips. I must admit, I never see a big difference in the shade of my teeth after using these, but I always use them when I get one in a subscription box. (I like to think they keep my teeth from getting stained from all the tea I drink.)
Juice Organics Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner – Coconut – 2 oz total Value $2
This haircare brand is free of parabens, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances! And I love all things coconut, so this set is perfect for me! I also love that this set is formulated for damaged and color-treated hair (my hair) – I will definitely buy it in full-size.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $24. I think that’s a great value for a $7 beauty box, even if the mascara was a bust for me. And I think they did a great job of Back to School
