Target $10 Beauty Box Review – January 2017
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it sells out very quickly. This month, they released two boxes, and amazingly enough, this $10 box I’m reviewing is still available as of today! (1/9/17)

Chapstick Total Hydration Natural Lip Scrub – FULL SIZE! Value $5
I LOVE the Chapstick Naturals Lip Balms (thanks, subscription boxes!), so I was excited to try this natural lip scrub from the same line. It’s a sugar scrub made with peppermint, so the flavor is fantastic, and it is moisturizing thanks to the many different oils in the formula!
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion – .25 oz Value $1.50
Normally I love Burt’s Bees natural scents, but I think I would have preferred this day lotion to be unscented. The Clary Sage scent is subtle, though, and the lotion formula is lightweight
Revlon Kiss Balm in Sweet Cherry – FULL SIZE! Value $5
This product is new to me, and I’m a fan! It’s a tinted lip balm that gives a beautiful sheer wash of color, with shine and moisture, too. Here it is swatched:
And the cherry flavor is fab, too!
Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist – 1.6 oz Value $1.50
I got this in the Target Beauty Advent calendar, and I’m happy to have more of it! This is the perfect type of hairspray formula for me. The hold isn’t firm, so you can still run your fingers through your hair, and the scent is subtle.
eb5 Intense Moisture Anti-Aging Cream – .5 oz Value $3.80
This is a new brand to Target Beauty Boxes!
I love that it is ingredient conscious, and it feels lovely and gentle on my skin. For a thick cream, it absorbed surprisingly quickly, too!
Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse – 2 oz Value $1.50
This product is designed to help remove dulling product buildup and enhance shine. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic colors or fragrances, and it is color safe too. (Plus it smells like lemons!) I’ve received this in a few subscription boxes in the past, and it always makes my hair feel really clean – I highly recommend it!
Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion – 2 oz Value $3.15
This creamy lotion is extra moisturizing and perfect for dry winter skin (it is fragrance-free, too.) If I could change one thing about it I would make the formula was paraben-free, but other than that, it’s a serious lotion for hydration!
This box also included a card with L’Oreal Revitalift Serum and Cream samples:
FYI – if you prefer your skincare unscented, I would avoid sampling these – they both have added fragrance.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $21.50. I think that’s a good value for a $10 beauty box, but it seems a little low compared to other Target Beauty Boxes. The full-size lip products make this box worth the $10 for me (I would pay full-price for each), and everything else is a bonus. I’m especially impressed with the eb5 sample!
