Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream – .6 oz Value $12.80

TargetBeauty_092016-055

An alternative title for Target Beauty Box could also be “Laneige and Friends!” (This brand is seriously in every Target Beauty Box!)

Fortunately for me, I always love getting Laneige in Target boxes! This moisturizer is super hydrating, gentle, and just feels great on my skin – Laneige knows how to do skincare!

TargetBeauty_092016-050

Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick in Naughty Nude – FULL SIZE! Value $7

TargetBeauty_092016-051

This is pretty much a perfect lipstick for me. It goes on slightly sheer so you can build color, it’s moisturizing, and I found the shade to be very wearable. Here it is swatched:

TargetBeauty_092016-044

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $7.50

TargetBeauty_092016-046

I’ve sampled this mascara before, and I’d give it a C+. I had issues with clumping, lash definition, and waiting for the formula to dry. (For what it is worth, I think you could get decent results if you make sure to wait long enough for it to mostly dry before applying the second layer.)

TargetBeauty_092016-048

Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser – 1 oz Value $.90

I’m a Biore fan thanks to their pore strips, so I was excited to try this. It’s a cleanser and exfoliant combination – and it was gentle enough to use daily – I’m hooked!

TargetBeauty_092016-052

S. W. Basics Organic Lip Balm – Value $5

TargetBeauty_092016-053

S.W. Basics make the best lip balms! They are made with only 5 organic ingredients (cocoa butter, coconut oil, beeswax and cardamom and cinnamon essential oils.)

The formulas are ridiculously moisturizing, and the essential oil blends are wonderful, too. (I love this cinnamon flavor for fall!)

TargetBeauty_092016-049

Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner – 1.75 oz Value $1

This is a 15-30 minute deep conditioning mask. I gave it about 5 minutes since I’m not great at waiting, and I wasn’t a big fan of the scent. (It’s a pretty strong tea tree oil fragrance.)

I still could feel benefits, though – it made my hair much softer and it didn’t leave it overly oily, either.

TargetBeauty_092016-040-3

OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo – 2 oz Value $.90

(Customers will either receive the shampoo or the conditioner.) This sample is smaller than I expected! I should get at least 2 uses out of it, though. While I usually can’t tell the difference between the effectiveness of most shampoos, this one stood out to me as being very moisturizing (and the coconut scent is a nice perk, too!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $35. I think that’s a great value for a $10 beauty box, even if the mascara isn’t for me. Everything else is great, and I love that I got a few of my favorite brands/products and got to sample a few new ones, too!

  1. I didn’t get the water bank moisturizer. I just noticed that after looking to see when the November box was coming out.

  2. I’m curious how early these beauty boxes are available on the website before the next box ships out? When did you all score September’s box? Thanks for the help! ?

    • It’s usually around 4am EST on the first Monday of the month

      • Great! Thanks, Erinne!!! 😉

  3. my box was missing the lip balm…bummer. I was looking forward to that 🙁

    • Call their customer service. They should give you some compensation.

  4. Mine never arrived (online said the 13th) – just contacted customer service who has refunded the cost. Did anyone else not get theirs? “mix-up with shipping” said the chat staff – is that code for stolen off a truck? (it was never marked as delivered, so I know it wasn’t stolen off my porch)

    • It probably means that it got lost either by USPS or by the company that brings it from Target to USPS, if there’s a company that does that. My December 2015 Glossybox got “lost” between Glossybox and USPS and never surfaced.

      • thx!

  5. I am curious if anyone had a weird reaction to the rimmel lipstick. It made my lips super chapped and the skin super tight and sore, and made the sides of my mouth crack. I have only ever had this happen before with Eos lip balm, which I purchased at Costco, and which there were lots of reports about it happening – did anyone else have this happen? I couldn’t find any common ingredients and I really don’t have sensitive skin, so I am super confused about it!

    • That sounds like an allergic reaction. I’ve had it happen to me before with some lip products (most recently Julep brand). I haven’t been able to figure out which ingredient does it for me, but if I stop using the lipstick, the symptoms go away in a couple days.

    • I once had that happen with a Clinique lipstick. I stopped using it, and it went away, and when I tried it again later, it came back. Never with any other brand, though.

  6. I loved this Target box and I’ve used EVERY item!! I am getting a little overloaded with lipsticks. I sure hope Target starts sending nail polishes to change things up.

  7. I also got the wicked lipstick and the cocoa balm, after reading the comments it seems like that was one version of box. I love the shampoo and the deep conditioner is nice, but it doesn’t seems like anything more than a regular conditioner. When Target starting selling Laneige I immediately bought their water sleeping mask since I heard great things and I’m a K Beauty junkie, but unfortunately that and all of their other products make me break out. 🙁

  8. Got my first box Thursday! I really think I will try to get this beauty box often. The value of it is incredible for just the $10 I paid. And I am happy to have received samples I will definitely use!

  9. I got my box today – much happier with it than I was with my Allure box. :-/ I wish the Biore was full size, but I’ve been wanting to try it and there’s enough to give it a good test. I had the cocoa lip balm and the lipstick in naughty nude – which is the color I was hoping for. yay – not red! 🙂

  10. Just got mine today. “Best of the Best” lipstick color ( a little too pinky bright for me) and citrus lip balm. Overall, I like the Target boxes though. I’d like to be able to recycle the actual boxes for a schoolroom project or something. Anyone have any suggestions?

    • Check Pintrest. There are some really great ideas to make decorative boxes with a bit of paint and some craft store hardware out of all the boxes we get. Search beauty box projects or maybe Birchbox projects. I’ve seen them before

  11. What a nice box!!! I just remembered these existed, I’m disappointed I missed out on a great box with some good stuff in it. I mean, Biore?? How awesome!

  12. I called customer support and told them I didn’t get the color lipstick that was advertised. The rep was a little snarky with me. I guess I’m not the first person he has dealt with. He wanted me to look online for the color listed but I didn’t have access to a computer. He was hard to understand and seemed annoyed. I did receive a $5 e-gift card which is fine with me.

  13. I received a ugly red lipstick but mine was broke in half and the cap was not on it was all over the other products I called CS and they gave me a 5.00 E Gift card. I just have to show it on my phone and they can scan it. I didn’t know you could take lipstick back and exchange it for a different shade.

    • You can actually take most makeup products back to exchange for a different shade/ product. I have done this a few times myself.

  14. This was my favorite Target box to date! I think it’s because I have a vacation coming up, so the travel sized cleanser, moisturizer, and shampoo will come in handy. I am going to try to exchange my dark lipstick for the nude one, and would have preferred a different flavor lip balm (got the cinnamon), but I like the formula.

  15. My box was accidentally delivered to California but I live in Hawaii 🙁 since they’re out of stock Target just gave me a refund. Someone got really lucky in California and received a free box 🙁

  16. I ordered two boxes and got a red and a burgundy lipstick and I love them! I also got two different kinds of the lip balm. Love this!

  17. Just receive my box but I only have 6 items. I’m missing the lipstick. So disappointed!!!!

    • I was missing the lipstick too! I contacted customer support and they gave me a $5 E-Giftcard.

  18. So I got the Cocoa lip balm. Has anyone tried it? What does it taste like? I want to keep it sealed in case of swap if it’s not going to appeal to me. Would have loved the peppermint. I got a very dark lipstick called “one of a kind”. It’s a deeper red. I’m more of a brownish/nude toned. Looks like I’ll be swapping.

    • Not so good in my opinion. Smells kind of weird, like those chocolate after dinner mints. But if you like York peppermint patties and stuff like that, you may like it.

      • Lol. I actually love York peppermint patties. I appreciate your knowledge. 🙂

    • I got the cocoa balm and love it. It tastes good and melts like butter on your lips. It is my new favorite balm.

  19. My hair is shoulder-length, I’ve used the shampoo twice, and I still have plenty left! I think the mini bottles are adorable, but I was really secretly hoping that it would be a full size, since that could fit in the box. I would have preferred to get conditioner over shampoo, but I’m not complaining. With the full size lipstick, mascara, and lip balm, they can’t all be full size products in a $10 box.

    I ordered two boxes, and both had the One of Kind lipstick color, which works for me, although the card said Naughty Nude, as well as OGX shampoo in both. I got the cinnamon lip balm in one and the cocoa in another.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the Biore cleanser, in that I expected it to be harsh, but it wasn’t. As for Laneige, the longer I can put off spending $32 again on a full size, the better ? I bought it after getting it in the first Target box that it showed up in – I didn’t realize it would be a recurring product! – and it comes in a really nice, heavy blue glass tub. When it’s empty, I hope to reuse it somehow.

    I have yet to use the mascara, as I’m currently on mascara overload.

    I do feel bad for those of you who really wanted Naughty Nude didn’t get it. Hopefully you can trade it at a store without issue. I did that once a few months ago and had so much trouble that I decided to just deal with unwanted colors in the future.

  20. Argh, mine won’t arrive until the 13th according to the tracking info. I can’t wait to try all of the products!

    • Still waiting for my Target box, too

      • Me three. Argh.

  21. I got Rimmel lipstick in “one-of-a-kind” and I LOVE the color! It’s very smooth and creamy!! I also received Cocoa lip balm which is awesome! I love the way the Jojoba deep conditioner made my hair feel!! I haven’t used the Bioré cleanser yet, but I love the brand so, I’m looking forward to it!! I always love Laneige and have used the moisture cream before! I was a little disappointed that the coconut milk shampoo was such a small container but, I still am so THANKFUL for getting all of the products for such a bargain!! I actually have used this falsies mascara before and, I really like it!!! I don’t have any problem with it clumping and was super excited to receive it in my Target box!!! I love that Target includes so many amazing items that are affordable and I hope they never stop!! I would love for them to start an automatic subscription box so that I’m charged automatically and I wouldn’t have to HOPE to get a box every month!! ?

  22. I received “The only one” lipstick.. # 510..pretty but wayyy too dark for me 🙁 I got the conditioner and the peppermint lip balm.. other than the lipstick I am happy with my box.

    • I got “the only one, 510 best of the best” lipstick…soooo dark, it’s ridiculous. I feel like this month’s box was a mis-mash of repeats, leftovers and overstock or something…shampoo OR conditioner? I have usually been happy with these boxes, but the combination of yet another too-bright red lipstick, mascara they’ve done before and moisturizer that they’ve repeated several times

  23. Not very pleased with the dark vampire colored “wicked” lipstick! This is my 1st Target Beauty box & 1 of the reasons I decided to give it a try was the naughty nude lipstick they said would be in every box & was also listed on my info card that was inside my box as well. I do like everything else so it was worth the $10.

    • I agree, one of the main reasons for me was the lipstick and I also got the red. I look horrible in reds. My paperwork even listed the lipstick as nude. Very disappointed and may not get another. Also since we got the deep conditioner would have much rather had the shampoo instead of a second conditioner.

    • I received the same ugly color! I cannot imagine many of us can wear that color; they must have had a glut of them that no one bought. On the upside, my lipgloss was “cocoa” flavor and not cinnamon. I’m not a fan of cinnamon; it would have been like mouthwash on my lips!

    • I also got the dark color lipstick and I ordered the box for the nude one. So I decided to call Target customer service and I told them that I was disappointed and they refunded me for the box. I was really surprised that they did that.

    • I also got that ugly red lipstick that went straight into the trash. I wanted a nude and feel rather ripped off as this only one of two full size products.

      • Call customer service and tell them how dissapointed you are. I got a $5 e-gift card. I think you may be able to exchange it in the store also

  24. I really needed a new moisturizer, but I just noticed this Laneige product contains myristyl myristate. This was one of the two ingredients the dermatologist on Michelle Phan’s channel mentioned could cause breakouts. Any of my fellow acne-prone people having this issue with Laneige?

    • Yes! I had issues with it breaking my skin out on a few separate occasions. However, I give it to my husband now when I get it in boxes and he doesn’t have any issues and really likes it.

    • Yes, I can’t use it at all. Two days in, my face was completely breaking out. Lucky for me I have a daughter with dry skin. She likes it.

    • I haven’t had any problems using laneige products at all. I am acne prone but have not had any outbreaks after using it. I use 3 different laneige products daily including the moisturizing cream from this box and my skin looks great. I think it just depends on the person. Some people may not have problems but others will. You should try it and see if works for you or not. Maybe just use a little in one spot first and see if you have any acne appear.

  25. Awesome box! Love the lipstick and the balm. Lipstick smells great ??

  26. I took my super dark Rimmel lipstick to my local Target and they allowed me to exchange for the Naughty Nude shade listed. Hooray!

    • I’m going to do that. The color sent is so dark it’s unwearable by me.

    • ASWESOME! Thank you for that great tip I always wondered with some of the full size products if we could take it back and get something that will be usable to use instead of doing something else with it and not getting your monies worth.

    • Thanks for the tip! I saw the info card said it was supposed to be a nude color, which I would have preferred. I also got a super dark burgundy color which is just too much for me.

  27. I didn’t get the nude lipstick either. I received the Oh So Wicked which is a very dark burgundy color. I also did not receive the lip balm in cinnamon. I got it in cocoa which smells awesome! No complaints though. I’m always happy with their boxes.

    • Looks like we got the same items. I got the “wicked” color too and the cocoa balm.

      My 14 year old and I try and grab the things we want lol…she grabbed the
      Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick in Wicked
      Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara
      Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser
      OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo

      I got the rest hahahaha. Target box is our favorite, we use every single item. I can’t say that about any other box. I am however waiting for my first Serendipity By LLB box so my opinion may change.

      • I agree that target is one of my favorites. I really love the Sephora play box and I’m also waiting for my first serendipity box. I get little lace box (2 boxes now) and have liked almost everything in each box. I’m hoping serendipity is just as nice!

        • I always get so afraid of spending so much on a box. That’s why I haven’t subbed to Little Lace yet, or PopSugar, but I haven’t liked much of anything in the PopSugar boxes, so I’m ok with no subbing to that one. At first I thought PopSugar was non beauty items, but as time passes it seems they are turning into a beauty box. 🙁 I will however keep my eye on Little Lace.

  28. “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!)”

    How? The beauty boxes cost less than $15 so they’re useless to use on future beauty boxes. Confused!

    • This will work if you combine it with any other beauty item(s) to get your order over $15. Hope that helps!

  29. This was my first time getting the Target beauty box, and I really loved it except for the lipstick. I didn’t get the nude shade, I got The Only One and it was a pretty dark berry color. I don’t wear dark lip colors so I gave it to someone. Still a great value though!

    • I got a much bolder color than I usually wear, too, and decided to be risky and try it. It was super intense, but once I blotted, it calmed down enough that it was wearable.

    • I also got the Oh so Wicked lipstick — even though the box description said specifically it would be Naughty Nude — and even the card in the box said Naughty Nude. I think it’s a beautiful color but as others have said, it’s really really dark. It works nicely as a stain if you pat it in, but yeah, not a color I would have purchased. I didn’t think about bringing it in — and won’t be near a Target for a few weeks at least so I complained via chat and they refunded $5 of the cost of the box. I also got cinnamon lip balm — which is not my fave, would have preferred basically any other scent — but I don’t seem to notice the scent when it’s on. Cinnamon oil just doesn’t seem like something that would be soothing or hydrating — isn’t it kind of an irritant?

  30. Happy with everything — got the lipstick in Wicked, which is waaaaay too dark for most people I think, but it is a nice formula and I may try to blend it with others and/or use it for Halloween!

    • Ha! Awesome idea! I got this shade, too. Without even thinking about color, I applied it to see if it was as moisturizing as I’d heard. (It is. It really feels nice.) Didn’t give it another thought as I went thru the rest of the box items. Later, I glanced in the mirror and literally said out loud, ‘whaaa?!’ when I saw how dark my lips were. FYI, it’s practically a stain.

  31. Really disappointed I didn’t receive the lip color as described as it seemed everyday wearable. It was also my deciding factor to order this month. I received Sinfully(something or other) that’s a deep garish red. Maybe I can use it on Halloween……(sigh) Target needs to state that colors will vary!

    • I’ve been able to exchange my lipsticks at the target store when I get a color I can’t wear. What I do is bring in the lipstick (unopened) with the card and go to customer service first. I let them know I got it in the beauty box and would like to exchange the color. I’ve done it several times and have never had a problem. Hope this helps.

      • I have tried this at the same Target store, but got 2 different employees. One said, “Oh, no, we can’t do that”. The other time I got a younger girl who had heard about the beauty boxes, and she found a way to do the exchange. Next time I will take the box card with me as well — thanks for that tip!

      • I never thought to do that! I got the darker shade and was disappointed so I’m going to bring it in for an exchange. I know where I’m going this weekend 🙂 Thanks!

        • Two things: make sure you bring the card with you. Tell them that you called customer service and they told you to bring the item in the store for an exchange. When I tell them that they have always honored the exchange. ?

    • I received that awful bright red colored lipstick, too! I’m so disappointed because I really wanted the Nude! That would have been much more wearable on me.

  32. when I try to purchase the Target box for Canada, it takes me to the Canadian site and always says it’s not available for shipping, can anyone tell me if there is a problem with the site? thanks

  33. I have a box available for trade and I am LOVING the Rimmel lipstick!

  34. I liked this box. Everything was good except for the Falsies mascara. It was horrible. It kept clumping and my lashes would not separate. It took forever to dry and it ran really easily. You can not wear it unless it is freezing out. By the end of the day I looked like a racoon. It was hard to wash it all off also. I received the only 1 lipstick in naughty nude but it is not a nude color. It is mauve and looks great with my skin color. I love it. I also got the SW cocoa lip balm and it is now my new favorite. It melts onto my lips and it only has cocoa butter, coconut oil and beeswax in it.

  35. I skipped the last 2 or 3 boxes but I got this one and I am loving it. I got the lipstick in the shade, under my spell . I believe that’s the name of it , I was hoping for the nude shade but I can work with this for fall so I’m not disappointed. It’s all in all a great box. I have to say I have not seen any variations with the conditioner instead of the shampoo though .

    • I got the conditioner, the lipstick in Its a Keeper – a berry rose color, very nice, and citrus lip balm. Really like that foil packet conditioner and face wash!

    • I got the conditioner! …and was really hoping for the shampoo.

  36. I got a different color lipstick. Its okay but would have loved to have gotten what should have been original to the box.

  37. For some reason this box didn’t draw me in, plus my spending freeze, so I did not get. Now I have FOMO….

    • Same here, even though I dislike the scent of Rimmel l/s maybe they’ve changed it since nobody has mentioned it that I’ve seen yet. Plus I assumed all would get the Nude color which sounds more mauve than the swatches I saw, which would have worked for me. Knowing my luck though I’d have gotten red or burgundy which I don’t wear, oh well. Next time perhaps.

  38. I’m a little bummed. I got this box because they specifically advertised the Naughty Nude. I ended up with the Wicked one which is way too dark for me. I like the cleanser and shampoo so there are some wins.

    • Yeah, I was really hoping for the nude color – but got it in a deep red color (can’t think of the official name). I liked it enough, but I don’t see it as a daily lipstick.

    • I got wicked too, which looks almost black on me. I have the worst luck with getting good shades in boxes, and the lipstick was what I really wanted out of this box. Oh well…

      • I love dark colors and the wicked lipstick color sounds great. I, unfortunately wasn’t able to get a box because it was sold out. I just recently found out that Target had a beauty box and I don’t know when to place my order so I won’t be too late. I guess you place the order on the Target website. Also if I am able to buy the first box will they send a box every month if I have them auto deduct the price from my credit card or do you have to sign up every month?
        Thank You
        Mary

  39. I bought this just for the lip balm and was praying for cinnamon or cocoa I got peppermint 🙁

  40. FYI: BAKING SODA is a very damaging product to skin’s natural pH levels. Skin is naturally more acidic to help protect itself while baking soda is highly basic. Long term use can cause permanent damage to your skin which can cause big dryness issues.

    • There are all kinds of homemade formulas using baking soda as part of the ingredients. I haven’t really seen anything negative. Even so, I imagine the actual amount of baking soda in the Biore product is pretty low. It claims to be ph-balanced. And even baking soda itself is supposed to help with ph balance.

      • Mindy is correct. Baking soda is not good for your skin. There are many online resources to support this. Are we allowed to post links? The inclusion of this particular cleanser was one of the reasons I skipped this month’s Target box. I don’t know the pH of the Bioré cleanser so for me it’s not worth the risk. FYI Lemon is another ingredient that shows up a lot in DIY beauty articles around the web and it is also bad to put directly on your face.

    • AB junkie here, who has read up on pH and skincare… While I agree that applying pure baking soda to your face is not good, I’ve actually pH tested this cleanser. Came in at around 5.5, like most of my other cleansers. Just thought you guys should know.

      Litmus strips are pretty cheap and good to have on hand, too, in case you want to test your products, but the /r/AsianBeauty subreddit has a wonderful list where folks have already tested their products.

      • You rock! Can’t argue with science. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  41. Sounds as if there were quite a few variations with lipstick colors because I received “Oh so Wicked” and my lip balm was different also. Mine is a purple label and says Cocoa Lip Balm. I like that it has only 3 ingredients. It will be my first time trying this brand.

    @Liz you crack me up with your alternative branding for the box. I’m glad that out of all the brands they could be repeating that it’s Laniege tho cuz I do like them esp during the summer months.

    PS.
    Liz, I love how you styled the first picture this month!

    • Haha! Glad you enjoyed my Laneige humor! 😉 Thanks, Mattie!

  42. I ended up not getting this one because I just have so much stock to get through but it looks like another great Target box. Biore cleansers are the best! There was a charcoal one in Allure beauty thrills a few boxes back and I used every last tiny bit.

  43. I received a coconut lip balm, which I am trying not to eat straight from the tube. I think S.W. has stolen my heart from Burt’s Bees! I also received a crazy-dark lipstick: Oh-So Wicked. It’s too intense for me, but putting a couple dabs over the balm and blending in works pretty well. I’ll definitely use everything in the box.

  44. There is @ least one variation with the lipstick. I got one called “Under My Spell.” It’s a dark berry color. Other than that, I was happy with the box. Skipped the last few, but was drawn to the color of lipstick we were supposed to get. Sad I didn’t get that one.

    • I got under my spell in the Rimmel too, but I also got peppermint in the lip balm. So mine was slightly different but I enjoyed both.

  45. I’m the same Liz, I have really liked every Target box they put out! The value is definitely there- and Laneige products are so gentle on my skin-I’m always happy to get something from them. I’m on overload with mascara so this will go to the women’s shelter but the lippie is perfect!

  46. My box was missing the lipstick, which was a bummer. It looks like a nice formula. Loved everything else in the box, except the mascara. I’m a lip balm addict and had never tried S.W. Basics before and I was very pleased. So glad I got this box.

    • Mine was missing too.

    • Let Target CS know and they will refund you part of this kit. I questioned something once and they adjusted my charge. They won’t do it if you don’t like the colors but will if something is missing.

  47. My card also lists the naughty nude color but I got a much darker shade called ‘under my spell’ – did anyone else get a variation?

    • I too got a color variation…a crazy dark red. I usually don’t want nude shades, since they make me look dead, but this one was too dark. I got cocoa lip balm too..

  48. I got a really deep colored lipstick but otherwise it was a hit 🙂

  49. I didn’t get this because I wouldn’t have liked the mascara and I’m not a big fan of nude lip shades. This nude looks pretty though. And I need skin care and I need to find a new go to lip balm since I haven’t been able to find an orange EOS egg in stores for over a month now. I wish I had gotten this box.

    • I know! What happened to the orange [tangerine, actually :)] Eos balms?!? That was my fav too (,and my dog’s apparently since she got a hold of and ate my last one) & now I can’t find it anymore 🙁

  50. I haven’t done the past few months, but this one was definitely a winner. I love everything in it.

    • Glad you loved this month’s box! I think I’ve loved every box Target has ever done! 🙂

      • I’ve liked every Target box I’ve ordered too?
