Target Beauty Box Review – May 2016
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it sells out very quickly. (This box is currently sold out).

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream – 20 ml Value $12.80
I love it when one item is worth more than the entire cost of the box! Laneige is a staple in these Target Beauty Boxes, which is fine by me because I think they make great, inexpensive skincare. This formula absorbs quickly and is very moisturizing. It is scented, so if you have very sensitive skin, you might prefer a non-fragranced moisturizer, but the scent didn’t bother me.
Burt’s Bees Oil Basic Cleansing Facial Cleanser – 1 oz Value $2.67
This product is new to me, and I love Burt’s Bees, so I was excited to try it! It’s a very gentle cleanser, great for removing eye makeup, and the natural scent is great, too. If you are new to cleansing oil, you apply it and massage it first to clean dry skin, then introduce warm water to remove it.
CeraVe Unscented Foaming Facial Cleanser – .5 oz Value $.50
Yay for a gentle and unscented cleanser! This worked well and didn’t dry out my skin. The sample is pretty tiny, but it should be good for travel – it has about 4-5 uses.
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream – .1 oz Value $1.20
This is one of those cult-classic items I’m always happy to get – even in this tiny sample size! A little goes a long way with this ointment/cream, so this sample actually goes pretty far!
I prefer self-tanner lotion with a mitt applicator, so this tan towel isn’t for me, but I gave it a quick sample. The scent is surprisingly not-bad for self-tanner, and the towel was similar to TanTowel.
Hair Food Dry Shampoo – 1.7 oz Value $5
This is sulfate and paraben free, goes on clear, and has a nice scent too! I’m a little overrun with dry shampoos at the moment, but
This might be my favorite discovery in the box. I lucked out – the color works great for me, the pigment is great, and the finish adds just a little shine. Here it is swatched:
Andalou Naturals Resveratrol Q10 Night Repair Cream – .4 oz Value $4.90
Derma E Firming DMAE Moisturizer with Alpha Lipoic and C- Ester – .5 oz Value $5
Target did a great job at including good skincare brands and good sized samples too. I found both of these moisturizers to be gentle, and I like that they included both a day time and night time skincare option.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $42. I’m happy to see such a high value for the May box since the price for this box was higher as well (usually, the boxes are around $7). I’ll use everything besides the self-tanner.
