Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it sells out very quickly. (This box is currently sold out).

target-beauty-box-march-2016-banana

Banana Boat Sun Comfort SPF 30 Lotion – 1 oz Value $1.70

This sunscreen lotion is a very lightweight, quick-to-absorb formula. The scent is very subtle, too. (I do love the classic sunscreen scent, though – I was hoping to get that from this!)

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray – 2 oz Value $1.20

My hair is naturally curly/wavy, so these sea salt sprays have a less noticeable effect on me, but I can tell you it will make your hair smell like coconuts and the beach! I’ll be using it for that reason alone!

target-beauty-box-march-2016-caress

Caress Adore Forever Body Wash – 1.8 oz Value $.50

This body wash is interesting:

Caress presents a fine fragrance breakthrough with the world’s first body wash with Fragrance Release Pearls. A touch-activated technology that releases a burst of perfume every time you touch your skin, all day long.

It promises fragrance release for up to 12-hours every time you touch your skin. I’m not a huge fan of the scent or the idea so this will be passed along.

SinfulColors Professional Nail Color in Poisonberry – FULL SIZE! Value $2

(Colors may vary)

I didn’t realize Sinful Colors nail polish was so cheap! I’ve tried this brand before, and I like the formula – especially for $2 a bottle!

target-beauty-box-march-2016-laneige

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – 20 ml Value $5.50

This sleeping mask is a target exclusive. After cleansing your face, you apply the mask, leave it on overnight, and wash it off in the morning. I’ve found this to be really soothing and gentle. Here is a look at the mask:

target-beauty-box-march-2016-mask

target-beauty-box-march-2016-nugg

nügg Face Mask in Anti-Aging – Value $3.30

(Mask included in Beauty Box will vary)

I first sampled nügg masks through Birchbox, and I really like them. They are gentle on my skin and relatively quick – only 5-10 minutes.

you are AMAZING Juicy Grapefruit Body Lotion – 1 oz Value $.50

This is my favorite discovery in the box! The lotion is lightweight, paraben and phthalate free, and the grapefruit scent is fresh and clean smelling!

target-beauty-box-march-2016-shampoo

Hair Food Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – 20 ml total Value $.40

This shampoo is made with sulfates, and I have to avoid them in hair care products since my hair is color treated, so this set will be donated.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $15. That’s on the lower end for Target Beauty Boxes, but since this one only cost $5, I have no complaints! I’ll use almost everything, and I think the samples are all good sizes, so I’m happy!

What do you think of the latest Target Beauty Box? Were you able to grab one?

Any idea why June’s BB was $10? This was my first time ordering and I was kind of disappointed. I noticed above it was mentioned to use the $3 off towards my next BB purchase but it says towards your next $15 purchase. Sorry, I’m a BB newbie.

Ann

April box spoilers are ok, not great. Was hoping for some new and exciting brands.

Joy

April spoilers is out finally

Jessica

Yep! And I don’t want one, oh well saves me some money. Maybe I’ll like may better.

Betsy

Did I miss the Target beauty box for April? I always thought it was out by now.

Jamie

Target changed it from a monthly box to a seasonal. No word yet on when the next box will come out. 🙁

teisharae

Curious as to where you got this info?

Kelly

Glad to see I’m not the only one wondering about the April Target box. They have been really regular the last few months so I was convinced that I was missing out on the April box. I keep stalking their site hoping to find one available. : )

Anna

I hope they release an April box, if they do the spoilers should be out any day now they usually reveal them a few days before the box goes on sale.

Molly

They have had a tendency to release on Mondays the last few. I bet it’s this Monday especially since they pulled the picture of the last box from their website

Windy

You’re absolutely correct! It was released today! Lol! You’re very observant! Thanks!

Nashdlp

I saw on a Reddit board that someone contacted Target and they said there WILL be an April box … but they wouldn’t give a hint as to when it would be up (or when spoilers would be up). I’m kinda wondering if they are putting some sort of twist in the timing because of April Fools’ Day … guess we’ll know before long! 🙂

Jessica

I’ve been waiting and waiting. I guess we will see.

Bella

Is there no April box?! I think I may cry!!!!

Nashdlp

I know, I’ve been checking each day for the last few days … maybe tomorrow! 🙂

Mel

I was hoping we would see something soon 🙂

Teresa

Any word on these becoming a monthly box? It seems like this was right around the day that the March box was released last month.

Wisteria

Wow, I just finished reading all of the comments and my happy bubble just burst. I’m old enough to be judgmental, so here goes: I received baby blue and lavender ‘baby room wall paint’ nail colors in the 2 boxes I ordered, (one was a gift). However, I would never consider taking mine to a competitor to exchange, I wouldn’t even take it to Target because it’s a sample box; I didn’t consciously pay for a bottle of nail polish and receive the wrong color. No one goes to Target, or elsewhere and complains when they receive extra products, or pay less than the listed price.

This is a lot of what’s wrong with our country, this idea of entitlement. It’s a $5 box with a $3 coupon included, and $17 worth of products. Even if you don’t like half of the items, you are still way ahead.

Was picking up the rest of my beauty order at Tgt CS last week and a teen tried to return a DVD without a receipt; the disc was a different movie than the case. The ee told me “it happens all the time”. I don’t want Target to raise prices because others pull this petty stuff. We all bear the cost of this type of behavior. Sadly, as JP says “we are never satisfied”….

mimiretz

I agree wholeheartedly about returning something to another store. It’s an absolute no-no — dishonest, immoral and unethical. However, if the product is unopened I would have no qualms exchanging it at Target. You’re not ripping them off — they can still sell it. You’re getting a color you’ll wear; and if you’re anything like me, chances are while you’re there you’ll pick up something else (or maybe a few more nail polish colors).

Wisteria

P.S. not a big deal, but the Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray 2 oz size is one of those add to cart for price: $2.99 in my cart.

Sample sizes always seen to cost more per oz, which is another reason to love subs! Cute little bottles ready for travel.

Wisteria

As always, Target delivered a fab box. I’m in the SW and received my box approx 7 biz days ago. Think I’m in a major interstate hub, since I usually get everything pretty quickly. Walmart box shipped today, curious to receive my 1st Trendsetter since I’m lying about my age now, haha!

Stalking this site daily too. Love reading the posts; everyone provides interesting takes on the subs and helpful info on products.

Re: Free Ship
If you don’t want another CC, you can spend $15 including this box, apply the $3 coupon and do a store pickup for the rest. My store is 10 blocks away, and I know others aren’t that lucky, but maybe a store close to work, etc. You can also have another person pick up your Target order, I’m always sending hubby when he’s running errands, but it can be anyone you want, they simply show i.d.

My Target box was delayed and delayed, and now they just cancelled it. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is there any recourse?

Cassie

I emailed Target about my nail polish leaking and the brush missing, and they refunded me $2.14! How nice!

Jessica

Has anyone not gotten their box yet? feels like its taking forever!

Alice

Got the same box as you. Can’t say I’m a fan of the Grapefruit lotion. The scene reminds me of public bathroom deodorizers. There’s a hint of Grapefruit at the end of the scent when its first applied but all I’m smelling now is public bathroom.

teresa

your coupon code is showing or i hope you already used it

Jaguar Goddess

I am kind of obsessed with the Target boxes. This is the third month in a row that I have gotten one. I really like everything that comes in them and it’s a pretty good value. I love that they have different masks and stuff in them usually. I like to try out different things.

I got this really pretty shade of lavender nail polish in my box and I am pretty obsessed with it. Which I am kind of nail polish snob and usually only use like OPI or Chinaglaze so this is my first experience with the Sinful Colors. It lasted two days without a top coat before I had to touch it up, which isn’t like horrible. It would probably last a day or two longer if a top coat was applied which is about how long it takes for me to get bored of the color on my nails and need to switch it up.

Bella

I just got introduced to Target boxes and now I’m hooked. I love everything and even the stuff I don’t really like I will give away. Actually does anyone know how to get off the swap waiting list? I’ve been trying to swap stuff from other boxes as well.

Teri

I got my Target Box a few days ago. I, also, have the Nug mask.. the variable item.. I Absolutely Luv every product! Plus using my RedCard.. Free shipping n using a coupon from last month… I think last month… anyway I paid 2 bux total. But to me personally due to the specific products March Target Box is worth every penny of a 5 or even 7 dollar box!!!

AshKay

I’ve only managed to obtain one target box ever, and it was when it was $10. But I’m not too sad that I missed out on this one. Hopefully I can catch the next one at a reasonable hour (fingers cross) and it will be an awesome box.

Angela

I’ve tried using the $3 coupons on the beauty boxes and they never work. Any suggestions?

teresa

was the purchase over $15? it should work then

mimi

Haven’t gotten my box yet (we’re on vacation so it’s probably waiting for me) but I love that mask, have had good luck with that brand of nail polish, and am looking forward to the mask. I can always use sunscreen and lotion, and actually like the way grapefruit smells. I’m just getting into sea salt sprays, so I’ll try this one, too. Thanks for the warning on the shampoo/conditioner — I’ve only recently started dyeing my hair (galaxy colors, so have to be even more careful) and therefore only recently started paying attention to that kind of stuff.

Cassie

I received my Target beauty box yesterday as well, and I love everything in it! My nail polish is a lilac color. The nail polish had leaked a little bit, and the brush was missing! My sister got the same color though and is going to give me hers so it’s all good.

Kay

Just got my box. The nail polish is Hush Honey which I would use and my Nugg mask is revitalizing one. I have a lot of young girls in my family, so I can easily gift those funky color nail polish and they love them. And I try my best to donate whatever I won’t use!

KathyB

I got this exact box, and I’m happy with all the but the polish. I don’t do pink of any kind, so I’ll be gifting it. I could probably exchange it, but I’d rather just give it to a friend. I have so many nail polishes already, it would be hard to find a new shade of blue/green/purple that I don’t have. Excited to try both masks!

Jerseyladi

Love my target beauty box ?
