  1. June box is live!!! There’s a men’s for $5 and women’s is $10 (perfect for the $3 off coupon).

  2. Did anyone else get a weird charge from Target? It appears that they took off $5 from the box and then charged me $5 for the gift card.

    • that’s how they do the “free giftcard with purchase” deals – they charge you for the giftcard to activate it, then take that $$ amount off.
      I only noticed bc a few times when I’ve shopped in the store and something didn’t automatically give me the giftcard, they’ll ring one up, then discount my total the same amount.

      • Good to know. THANKS!

  3. I snagged mine this morning!!! They’re available, girls!!!!!

  4. Hey Liz, the box is live now! ??

  5. IT’S LIVE!

  6. Anyone else notice the photo doesn’t include the loreal lip pen? It’s written in the description just not in the photo.

  7. Boxes just went on sale! Got mine! 3:15 AM EST! 10$

  8. Ordered 2 boxes. It looks like if you spend 20.00 you get a 5.00 gift card WHAT! Now I can go to sleep. I wish they had a subscription so I could sleep on the 1st and 2nd. Love Target boxes.

  9. Box is live! I was able to put my order in at 12:05 PST

  10. Got my 2!
    They went live 11:58pm pacific

    • Are we all on there? It won’t go live for me…link please?

      • It doesn’t let you look at the product page can only add to your cart and pay lol, but i got my confirmation email so it for sure went through

      • Update: got mine but I had to add to cart. I was not able to view the preview and what sizes I’m getting…oh well! FYI $5 gift card with $20 works out perfect if you’re getting two!

    • Same here! Got 2. Me and my mom!

      • Yay, lol now I can go back to sleep. Set my alarm for 11:55pm

  11. Got an email from target re: beauty box. Clicked the link and it says sold out…

    • It’s not it’s just saying that, but you can still add it to your cart

      • It says sold out,but under it you can order.

  12. Crazy. Did anyone else get the email from target tonight? It’s about the beauty box. It says it’s $10 for $47 worth of products. The link they have isn’t live yet though. I received the email at 10:23 pm PST. Also, if the photo is correct it looks like there’s an addition of an Egyptian magic cream packet. Interested to see the actual sizes of the products. Funny how a difference of $3 makes you pause a little haha..

    • How do you order the target beauty box? Please tell me if I have never done it before. Thanks

    • Yeah I got the same email from target around 10:20pm pst. It wasn’t available then but it went live at midnight. I just ordered mine =)

    • But if you buy 2 you get a 5.00 Target gift card. It’s a win.

  13. Well I am at work and keep checking, but it has not opened yet ….?

  14. Target could add this dry shampoo every month, I love it! Two facial cleansers is a bit much, but I suppose there are months when the timing of product insertions can’t be helped. Overall, another great box!

  15. Thanks for the heads up but I think I will pass on this box. There is Nothing good in there this month. The only thing I could see using is the facial cleanser.

  16. I have had my $3 off coupon sitting on my desk since last month. Now its gone. I swear my luck! First time I was actually going to use it….. now it’s gone….

  17. I can’t find the place on the Target website where they show the “subscription box size beauty items”. I know it was mentioned (with a link) sometime, but I can’t find it. Does anyone know or did anyone save the link? Thanks!

    • If you search “trial beauty samples” on a bunch of items come up. I think that’s what you’re probably looking for.

  18. I am looking for a coupon code. If anyone has one that they will not use i would really appreciate it. Thx!

  19. How much do th run?

    • Anywhere between $5 and $10 this one looks like $7

  20. Dunno if it’s just a glitch or if the page always looks like this, but the site says that the box has sold out. Is that true? It’s only two AM where I am, that’s ridiculously fast!

    • Hi it should go on sale Monday morning, but don’t wait too long or it will really be sold out

      • Thanks for letting me know!

      • You were right about checking early! It’s almost 3:30 AM where I am. After thinking about it though (and buying a lot of candles from the B&BW sale) I think I’m going to skip this box. To me it doesn’t seem like a $10 box since I’ve seen reviews of previous boxes.

  21. Easy pass. Too many facial stuff and not enough makeup or hair products. First time in a year I have passed a Target box.

  22. Was wondering how to use the $3 off coupon. I know you have to order an additional item to get your total to $15. in order to use the coupon but doesn’t that change your order from free shipping to a shipping cost? If anyone could give me advice on how to use these coupons we get each month with our box, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    • Betsy, it will add a shipping cost but others have said you can have the other items shipped to your local store for pickup so you don’t have to pay for shipping.

      • Oh I see. Thanks so much! <3

    • Also if you have a Target Red Card, you get free shipping on everything- no minimum.

  23. Does this box ship to Canada? I can’t seem to find any information on it!

  24. So happy to see a good representation of natural, toxin-free products in addition to traditional synthetic/toxic ingredient products in the box.

  25. Two months ago I bought one for me and a friend; last month I bought one for me and my sister. This month I think I’ll get one for me and my mom. I think it will make a great gift for Mother’s Day!

    Also, thanks for the idea of donating unused/unwanted sub products to shelters. That is a wonderful idea! We have a few where I live, and as a teacher I know there are plenty of families who would love to receive things like that.

  26. I can’t wait for this to go on sale!!!!

  27. Well, 5 of the 8 items look interesting to me so I’m in! I feel like if I keep getting these boxes I’m never actually have to buy a Lanaige product 🙂

  28. Oh, nice! It’s been a few months since I’ve been interested enough in the Target boxes to get one. I think I’ll be grabbing one this time.

  29. This is the box for me. I passed on the last couple of Target boxes but I like just about everything in this box.

  30. About earlier comment on DMAE… I checked this Derma E product on EWG’s Skin Deep database, and its risk is rated as moderate – with the ingredients of most concern actually being Retinyl Palmitate and Fragrance. So I’m not too worried about DMAE, personally. Sounds like another cool Target Beauty Box coming up!

  31. Is this one box or two? The way the list is divided up makes me wonder.

  32. It was actually smart of Target to not make their boxes a subscription, the difficulty getting it adds to the hype.

  33. Whewwww thought I missed a box, I was pissed this is the first time I didn’t check on here to see what was going on first thing in the morning….and why can’t it be an auto renew

    • I know, since September (I think) I’ve bought every one except one, and then I wished I had bought the one I skipped.

      Tarzhay please take my money!!!

  34. Pass. I’d bet these won’t sell out as fast, just like the Allure Thrills.

  35. I will get this one. Hopefully Target won’t lose it like they did my April box. I was so mad !! I wish this box had more makeup. Will buy 3 though. One for me , and two of my daughters.

  36. Nah, nothing screaming must have for me here.

  37. Pretty much anything that is “Target” is a no-brainer for me!
    I swear as soon as I see “Target”, I just start reaching for my credit card – doesn’t really matter what it is 🙂
    Its cheap enough that whatever I don’t use or want, I can just donate or swap.

    I just have no control when it comes to Target

  38. Easy pass…not exciting…

  39. More for those that want it cause SKIP! I’m not a self tanner, I embrace my pale and have never found a tanner that didnt look orangey anyway. and I find it odd when companies include them in subscription type boxes, it’s not a staple like lipstick or mascara imo the dry shampoo is a repeat, so pass, for me good luck to those girls or guys that want one.

  40. I know many people aren’t fans of dry shampoo. I personally don’t use them either. Once i have a few bottles saved up from I bring them to my local women’s shelter; it’s a big help to them.

  41. So excited. Just ran out of dry shampoo. I love dermae too!

  42. Gah D: I’ll most likely be without internet when these boxes go up, and I don’t trust anyone with my card info. Why can’t Target make an automatic billing thing 🙁 super bummed

  43. That dry shampoo is the worst. I couldn’t even give it away. They just sent that not too long ago. I wish Target’s boxes had a little more variety.

  44. I don’t know..I’ve gotten every box since the last six months but on the fence on this one.

  45. I’m on the fence about this one. If I get it, definitely tossing the Derma E product, there are studies that DMAE can cause cell death, no thanks! But some of the other products look good and I’ve been happy with the last few boxes.

    April’s box went on sale at 12am PST, I bet this one does too.

    • I’m not sure where you saw this and I’m not disagreeing with you but I was given a jar of Derma E scar gel From that same company free from my Whole foods market. It completely removed a scar from a 4 inch chemical burn on my forearm.

      FYI – it you are in Cozumel and a tour guide named Taco wants to show you how the Aztecs used perfume – just say no thank you and quickly step away.

      • LOL Kim!!!

      • Haha, thanks for the tip about Cozumel! Some of the Derma E products are great, DMAE is an ingredient they included in this moisturizer, I don’t think it’s in all of their products. I read it on Paula’s Choice, then Googled DMAE and cell death and read more about it from legitimate sources. It’s also included in some of their cleansers, but from what I read this isn’t as bad because you wash it off your skin, as opposed to leaving it on like a moisturizer.

      • I am still lol’ing like 5 minutes later from this comment. Thanks Kim 😉
