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

Wet n Wild ProLine® Graphic Marker Eyeliner – Black – FULL SIZE! Value $4
This liquid eyeliner has an angled felt tip so you can get a fine or fuller line:
It goes on smoothly and stayed put until I used makeup remover. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Laneige BB Cushion – Value $6.80 (Or $2.27 if you only count the shade that works for you).
This sample includes three different shades:
Light, Medium, and Medium Dark. I appreciate that they send out a sample that works for more than one skin tone! It still only covers three shades, though.
This formula provides a good amount of coverage while still looking like you aren’t wearing makeup – I love that aspect of it. My only gripe is that the formula has a perfumed scent, but that fades pretty quickly.
Here are the three shades swatched below the eyeliner swatches:
The Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Balm has been one of my favorite subscription box discoveries this year! It’s super hydrating, all natural, and I’m always happy to find a drugstore item I love!
This is my first time trying the tinted version, and no surprise – I’m a fan! It gives you a hint of color, and pretty much the same moisturization as the original lip balm.
Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer – Coconut Oil – 2 oz Value $1.20
This moisturizer is designed to be applied immediately post-shower before drying off. It’s an interesting concept, but I would have preferred it if the formula was paraben-free, and I was so-so on the scent.
EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo – 2 oz Value $2
EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Conditioner – 2 oz Value $2
This shampoo formula is SO minty – I love it! And both the shampoo and conditioner are sulfate and paraben free!
This conditioner is slightly less minty, but still smells really refreshing – this set is one of my favorite items in the box!
Derma E Hydrating Day Crème with Hyaluronic Acid – .5 oz Value $5
I like Derma E because they make fair-priced skincare items that are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free. They work well for me, too. This day creme absorbed easily into my skin and was gentle, too. I just wish it wasn’t so strongly scented!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $26. I think that’s a great value for a $7 beauty box. This wasn’t my favorite Target Beauty Box, but it’s still impressive, and the lip balm and shampoo + conditioner set alone make it worth it for me.
