The Target Beauty Box is Back!

Spring Target Beauty Box

The Target Beauty Box is back! (Thank you so much to My Subscription Addiction reader Lyndsay for alerting us to this box!)

The box is $5 and a one time purchase. (There is a shipping charge – shipping and tax varies by state. Red Card members get free shipping). UPDATE – thanks to everyone for commenting. Shipping should be free, but isn’t showing up as free right now. After you place your order call customer care and they will refund you for shipping.

The Beauty Box Includes:

1) TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (2.5 fl oz): Want beachy hair without hitting the surf? Spray from root to tip for salty, sultry texture and subtle, windswept waves.

2) L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (.22 fl oz): Stretch and lengthen lashes for a fluttery, winged-out look with this unique mascara formula and revolutionary asymmetrical Butterfly Brush.

3) Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo (1.7 oz): Give hair a rejuvenating boost with this paraben and colorant-free formula made with natural tapioca to instantly absorb excess oil with less residue.

4) COVERGIRL Smoochies Sizzle Gloss (.44 fl oz): Pucker up. Sheer color meets sizzling shimmer in a moisturizing formula that’s always stunning, never sticky.

5) Jergens BB Cream Light (2 fl oz): Finally, a multi-tasking beauty cream in a quick-drying formula that goes on sheer and delivers visible results in just 5 days.

Are you going to grab a box (or multiples?). I’m a little disappointed they are charging shipping this time, but I’ll probably still end up buying one! (Check out my review of the last Target Beauty Box if you want to see what you can expect!)

  1. How do you get an alert to let you know when to order?

  2. How do I get notification on the next box? Also how often are these released? Seems like I’m always at least a day late! :o(


    • It would be nice if they commented. That is also my question.

  3. Just got my box today!!!

  4. Did anyone else just receive an email stating that there was a delay in shipping? I ordered the stupid box on the 3rd after spending 20 minutes on the phone with customer service to get the free shipping (which wouldn’t get added back to my account for 10 days) and the thing hasn’t even shipped! By the time I get it, it will be over 20 days since I ordered it.

    • I received the email as well, but on the site when I ordered it, it stated that it included free shipping but could take 1-2 weeks to ship. Its annoying but I knew this was going to happen.

  5. Hi! The shipping charge was a mistake. Call cs and they will refund the shipping.

  6. Went to the website and it’s sold out already.

  7. It looks like the shipping issue has been resolved. I just placed my order, and free shipping was automatic, no need to call or email anyone. My order was a total of $5.29 with tax.

    • Looks like it’s sold out now 🙁

    • I received a reply from re: my trouble with customer service not being willing to take off my shipping charge…They assured me the matter was taken care of and told me to go ahead with my order and they would make sure the shipping was removed…of course they were out of stock when I went back and per Target customer service, they will not be restocking or getting anymore Beauty Boxes….

  8. I too had the same issue w/ the shipping charge. I stopped the ordering process and utilized the instant chat/help that Target had on the site. The agent assured me of the removal of the shipping charge, however it would not be reflected for 7-10 days. I continued w/ the transaction and am hoping for the best.

  9. Got mine! Free shipping and 5% off via Red Card. Another 2.5% rebate via Ebates! Thanks so much for letting us know this was available!

  10. woop it worked… i ordered yesterday and called today… they said that they are going to refund me my shipping costs. I didnt have to argue the guy just said that i will receive a refund.

  11. Apply Promo Code “BeautyBox” at checkout if you order at least 3 boxes for $3 off any $15 beauty purchase! Definitely worth calling for the free shipping too! They put me on hold but no problems. I feel it’s a $20+ value. My three boxes with tax cost me $4.38 each – one for me & the other two are friends’ Easter/Spring gifts!

  12. Well I tried the same thing everyone else did and customer service would NOT take off the shipping charge for me. I also was told a supervisor was NOT available to talk to me and that they would give me the same answer anyway. I am not going to buy a box and pay more for shipping than the box cost. My total was going to be $11.66. I told her nevermind and cancelled before it went through.

    • I would try calling again……I really think it depends on who you get on the phone……and by now you think Target would fix the problem. The first rep I got was incredibly rude and I had to ask for a supervisor multiple times before she would transfer me. I am not impressed at all with Target’s customer service after dealing with them on this.

  13. I ordered it and was charged the 5.62 shipping. I called customer service and argued with the rep on the phone for 5 min because she said that it didn’t qualify for free shipping and then I asked to speak to a supervisor and they said that it should have free shipping and that they are having a glitch on their website so that is why it is being charged (when it shouldn’t – just like what other people here have commented). Thank you everyone here for commenting about contacting customer service about the shipping 🙂 I would have given up with the first rep if I hadn’t read here that other people were getting their shipping refunded.

    • Same happened to me, only I didn’t think to ask for a supervisor, but about 10 minutes after getting off the phone I received an email stating that my shipping charges were refunded.

    • I’m seeing a shipping fee too. Hoping they sort this out before the boxes sell out. I don’t have time to haggle with customer service at the moment.

  14. I got it and even with the shipping prince its worth it because i plan on using everything. The mascara and gloss are full size, approx $6 each, the tony and guy, herbal essence, and jergens, are all travel size and are approx $2-$3 each. even if I only used the mascara and gloss the box is worth the price. I’m fairly excited to try these different brands, and the price is worth it.

  15. I ordered two for $11!! I am NOT a redcard holder. I called and got the shipping waived as this is a glitch. Soooo excited to try it!!

  16. I ordered 3 – thanks for the heads up!! All great travel items for me and cheaper than buying in the sample aisle. With my Redcard – discount and free shipping (w/out the hassle of calling customer service).

  17. For anyone who wanted to order a Target beauty box: I called Target and they said that there’s a glitch in the system! (Not sure as to whether they’re working on fixing it or not)…but the box was only $5.64 with tax & shipping. Shipping is free (I’m not a red card holder)!! Right before you complete your order, just give them a call and they’ll remove it within the minute! 🙂

  18. i wish i could get this, it’s such a great deal….. it doesn’t ship to Georgia T^T WHY

    • Well then I guess I couldn’t order it even if I wanted to. Oh well.

  19. I just called and they said if you were charged shipping to call them and they will adjust the price 🙂

    • Is the free shipping just for red card members?

  20. I’m ordering! yay for free shipping + 5% off!! Can’t wait to try the TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising spray.

  21. Stephanie is correct – the description says free shipping, and the shipping charges are a mistake. I just called and got it refunded.

  22. It is a glitch in the system!! I ordered two, and it said I would pay $6 shipping — I called customer service, and they said that it was a mistake on Target’s part and refunded me the shipping fee after I bought my boxes. Give them a call before you order! 🙂

  23. how often does target do these boxes??

  24. They used to give these out for FREE….the last one I paid for even at $5 was not worth it. A store a big as Target should give these for free, they are samples and they usually include coupons for items to be used at their store. Passing on this one.

    • I miss when these were free too 🙁

  25. Is supposed to be free shipping….I just called customer service and it is a glitch! If you call them and give them your cart number, they will have you complete the order and then waive shipping (until the glitch is fixed). It even says free shipping in the description. 🙂

  26. Everyone is complaining about the shipping being more than the box, but honestly it’s still quite a deal at about $12. That mascara is $8.99 on its own, and I don’t really think they could ship it for much less than what they are charging. It seems pretty reasonable to me.

  27. I had been looking forward to these because I buy most of my beauty and skincare stuff at Target (hey, I’m on a budget and it’s the closest store to my condo). But…I already have two of those sea salt sprays from Birchbox (I don’t use hair spray) and I don’t use dry shampoo. Since I don’t have a Target Red Card, I’d only be getting three things I can use and it might well cost well over $10 based on what the other commenters are saying. So not really worth it for me.

  28. I bought one. $5.08 after tax after using my red card.

  29. Got one for me and my daughter, only because I have a Red card…otherwise not worth it.

  30. Not worth it

  31. Oooo, thank you for posting this! I have a Target gift card and a Red Card, so I got 4 of them for $19 (5% off and free shipping)! I get a treat for me and for some friends and family and I didn’t even have to spend any of my own money!! I’m doing the happy dance right now. 🙂

  32. I just one up with my Red csrd. $5.07 shipped!

  33. Huh… it says “Due to wanting to get you the best price, we’ll pay to ship it to you, but please allow up to two weeks for delivery.” But when I tried using a card other than my RedCard, it wanted to charge shipping.

  34. I have the target red card so ordered one for me and one for the little sister at college!

  35. Same here. I didn’t order because shipping came to more than $5.00 and I don’t have a target red card. Just not worth over $11 with tax.

  36. If you have a target debit or credit card you get free shipping and an additional 5% off!

  37. First, I want to say that I love this website and truly appreciate all the work and time you put into giving us all the information about subscription boxes. I am now truly addicted!

    I am trying to order this but it is saying it has restricted items and can’t ship to arizona… has anyone seen this before??

  38. I ordered mine, I missed out last time they offered these. I got free shipping with my red card, also 5% off, which basically covers the tax, the total cost is $5.07 for 5 items.

  39. Total with tax and shipping for me in Tennessee = $11.66…kinda crazy for a $5 item…

  40. Didn’t order – tax and shipping were an additional $5.64.

  41. For me shipping would be $5.62 plus $0.81 in tax. Not worth it for me! If they weren’t charging more for shipping than they are for the box itself I’d probably get it.
