Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish – 50 ml Value $2.30
This is one of the best body scrubs I’ve tried in terms of really scrubbing away dry skin! It is made with peach seed powder for the scrub and the scent is the classic floral/fruity Soap & Glory scent.
It left my skin super smooth, and with no excess oil/moisture. I’m a fan!
Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit in Nice to Fuschia – FULL SIZE! Value $5
(Good to know for swaps – this product has a plastic wrap seal.)
This formula is a long-lasting liquid lipstick with a matte finish, and it holds up well!
The pigment is excellent, and the staying power is impressive, too. Here it swatched:
When I applied it on my lips, I may not have given it enough time to completely dry, so some of it rubbed off, but I actually liked that result better! It gave me a berry stain look!
Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs – Value $5
This is one of my favorite discoveries in the box! I love the Nubian Heritage brand, but I didn’t know they made bath bombs!
These bath bombs are made with organic and fair trade ingredients and the tropical fruit scent is fabulous!
Acure Pore Clarifying Red Clay Mask – 1 oz Value $8.80
(Good to know for swaps – includes a hard-to-remove foil seal!)
This mask smells just like the Pore Clarifying Scrub in the April Target Beauty Box. You let it sit for about 15 minutes then remove. (If you thinks sheet masks look scary on, wait til you see this!)
I found it to be pretty gentle on my skin, but I really couldn’t tell a difference once I removed it! I’m going to give it a few more tries, though. I love the ingredients, and this size of this sample is great, too.
Guess Dare Perfume – .04 oz Value $1.40
This perfume has notes of “crisp kumquat, jasmine and coconut palm.” It’s not for me, and to be honest I was a little bummed to see a perfume sample in this box! (Usually, Target Beauty Boxes are perfume sample free!)
VICHY Pore Purifying Clay Mask – 12 ml total Value $3.20
While I don’t love foil packet samples, I appreciate that this sample is divided into two separate packets! (I hate when a foil packet sample dries out if I don’t use it all at once.)
This mask was creamy, gentle, and left my skin feeling soft and smooth!
Nexxus Therappe Shampoo and Humectress Conditioner – 9 ml each Value $.50
These little samples are so cute! They are practically foil packets, but visually more appealing! The formulas are nice, too. (And they smell good.)
(FYI – shampoo contains sulfates.)
Nexxus Vitall 8-in-1 Rejuvenating Masque – FULL SIZE! Value $4
After sampling this mask and the shampoo and conditioner, I can officially declare myself a fan of their formulas and scents! (They have that expensive salon fragrance.)
This mask only takes 3-5 minutes, and adds moisture without weighing your hair down. (Only apply midlength to tips, though.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $30. I think that’s great for a $10 beauty box. I discovered a lot of new, great products, too!
