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

Each box comes with an info card and a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more. (Tip thanks to MSA readers – save these to use on future Target Beauty Boxes!)


Laneige Water Bank Serum – 10 ml Value $5.80

Laneige has become a staple in Target Beauty Boxes, and I’ve become a huge fan of the brand because of it! This is a lightly fragranced gel serum, and it absorbs quickly and feels almost invisible on my skin.


Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Crème Rinse – 3.2 oz Value $2.80

Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo – 3.9 oz Value $2

These are both good sizes for shampoo and conditioner samples! I absolutely love the Shea Moisture conditioner! It has a fabulous tropical scent, and like all Shea Moisture products I’ve sampled, it is made with natural and organic ingredients, plus free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates!

I’m still on the fence about using haircare products with sulfates in them on my color treated hair, so I’ll be donating this sample, but I like the scent! I think it pairs well with the conditioner.


Yes To Cucumbers 10-Count Facial Wipes – Value $3

These makeup remover wipes are a classic to me now thanks to subscription boxes! I’ve been using them for years, and they are refreshing and gentle – a perfect facial wipe combination!


e.l.f. Lip Kiss Balm in Bare Kiss – FULL SIZE! Value $2

This lip balm gives a hint of color and a good amount of moisture. The pigment is subtle so this is the kind of lip balm you can apply without a mirror!


Swatched in photo below.


Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Duo – 3 g total Value $5.30

I think I was supposed to only get one of these in the box, but I guess two makes up for the fact that each got damaged in shipping! I should be able to repair these somewhat with some rubbing alcohol and letting them reset.

(I realized I didn’t get the Cotz item listed on the card, so maybe I was accidentally given two of these instead? Let me know if you got the Cotz item in your box.)

She shades both have a good amount of pigment and shimmer. Swatched below with the lip balm:



L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in Nude Beige – 0.06 ounce Value $2

I’ve sampled this before, it’s pretty impressive for a drugstore foundation.

Here is what the sample looks like out of the packaging:


To apply this foundation, you press the white pad into the foundation-filled sponge and then pat it on your face. I found the coverage to be sheer to medium. (Usually I prefer full coverage, but this worked well for me.) I think this is great for a no-makeup look – it looked so natural on my skin!

The “lumi” part definitely showed in the dewy overall look. On me, that started to look a little oily after a few hours of wear, so I did have to reapply some finishing powder throughout the day.


Soap & Glory Righteous Butter Body Butter – 10 ml Value $.50

I like this body butter! The formula is rich and moisturizing, but it still absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling really soft. I don’t mind the fragrance, but I’m not in love with it either.

S. W. Basics Exfoliant – Sample Packet

This cleanser exfoliant is made with just organic oat flour, organic almond flour and sea salt. Like other dry powder exfoliants, you just add a little water to make a paste then apply.


I like the S.W. Basics brand a lot because of their simple ingredients, (they make the BEST lip balm), but I’m not the biggest fan of this exfoliant. I prefer a powder that is more consistently fine like the Tatcha Rice Powder.


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Cream – .5 oz Value $5.90

This is a good sample size for skincare! Here is a look at the sample:


My favorite part about this cream is how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel. You can use it both day and night, and I think it is a great base for applying makeup over, too.


Verdict: This box has a value of about $29.30. I think that’s a great value for a $10 beauty box, and I’ll use almost everything in this box, so the value is there for me personally, as well. (Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed with a Target Beauty Box!)

I ordered two of these boxes and have now been using the L’Oreal Revitalift cream for about a month. I was starting to get the little parentheses () around my nose/mouth and some faint lines around my eyes when I smiled.

I have noticed a big reduction in both and think I will be buying the full size. I have received so many swanky high-end samples through boxes and the drugstore one has so far worked the best for me, lol.


Omigosh! I just happened to wake up and looked at my phone. I noticed I had a bunch of emails so I checked them and saw the July Target beauty box was available. I wasn’t able to add the boxes on my phone so I got on my laptop. Everything went smoothly and my order went through. But then I get an email saying my order has been delayed. Anyone else???


Yes I got the same


I had to order on my desktop also. It didn’t show a description on the box, but I was like whatever we ALL know I need both, so I bought both boxes plus an ELF $1 double sharpener to pick up in store (to use my $3 coupon). Anyway, I just ordered at 7:43 AM EST so they’re both still available. Good luck!


Danon, I seriously LOL’d at your post! I also couldn’t find a description at the time I ordered and said the same thing! ??? I ordered BOTH boxes without even knowing what all I was getting lol! The addiction is real!


Just got mine, both boxes, at 715. So far no delayed email.


Argh, it says arriving 7/18.

Christie v

Me too! I could only order from my desktop. It wouldn’t work over my phone. I got the confirmation email then a minute later an email saying both boxes will be shipped 7/12-7/15? Instead of 7-7. The boxes don’t even show up to order at So I’m assuming they are sold out? I’m not feeling very confident that I’ll get my boxes, even though I got the delayed email. Do you think otherwise??


I ordered mine at 4am and got the same thing. Before the notice went out they are availible


I just got the July boxes on my laptop. Just thought I’d share since it sound like people were only able to get through using the app.


After more than half an hour of pondering if I should get the boxes, I finally convinced myself I don’t need any of the products although the NYX butter lipstick is calling my name….


I think you should…..the NYX lipstick is what, $6.00? For a dollar more, you get all the other stuff!!! Yes, I enjoy encouraging others to join in the madness…….?


Haha, I know what you mean, it’s such a great deal! But I’ve spent so much money this week on beauty products because of the July 4th sales and I am very particular about lipstick shade, don’t want the hassle of having to exchange at the store and possibly get rejected, lol. Maybe if it’s still available later in the morning….


FYI…….the $3.00 off coupon that came in the Men’s June box is not valid on these boxes. My Women’s June box didn’t have a code in the box, but I didn’t think too much about it because there was one in the Men’s. Turns out coupon in Men’s was for “personal care” only and excludes “beauty” purchases. ? Still excited to get the boxes, though!!!! They really surprised us this month!!! I didn’t even look to see what was in the boxes…..just ordered two each (for me and my mom).


Maybe we can post unused men’s coupon codes here? For anybody getting men stuff…haha! Anybody need one?


Ordered one of each for July! Had to use the app though, couldn’t get through on the website.


Thanks for the tip, I just did the same thing


I got my boxes, super excited!!!!!

Janine Cox

I got it thanks!! Now maybe sleep lol


Just put one of each July beauty box into my cart and checked out with PayPal. Yay! It’s 12:30 am on the west coast. 7.00 plus tax each box, free shipping.


I couldn’t order from the website so, I downloaded the app. I was able to purchase both boxes from the app!!!! I’m so excited!!!


Anyone have any code they won’t use? 🙂


2 different $7.00 boxes just populated for me @1:30am CST for July. Target July “Simply Raidiant” and Target July “Fresh and Fabulous”. It wouldn’t allow me to add to cart yet and the single items are not listed separately either. Guess I’m staying awake for when they go live 🙂


Use a desktop instead! Good luck – I was just able to get mine.


I can add them to my cart but they won’t load on their own page! So I’m curious to check out and see if I get them or not hah


Yea won’t let me put it in my cart. When do u think it will go live? I want them both.

Charlene Kline

I had them in my cart then they disappeared. Now I can’t add them. Please tell me they’re not sold out! I’ve been wanting & waiting for this!


You can get them through the app!


Images for the boxes are out!


Thanks for the heads up!!


You are welcome! But I just went back to the page and Target took them down:/


I hope Target isn’t discontinuing their boxes, I’m scared! (the addiction is real).


My theory is that they will wait until after the coupon they send is expired. so we can spend it in store /online instead of on multiple beauty boxes ..

but darn it i want to know the spoilers already!!!! ??


I really wish they would make this a monthly subscription box.


It’s really weird that it is not on sale yet. It has been the first Monday of the month at least since January. December’s was even on the last Sunday in November after black Friday. What’s going on?? Ahhhhhghhhghh!!! ( that’s me silently panicking in my head)


I think June’s box went on sale at the end of May. I looked this morning but expected nothing given we had no spoilers yet. I’m very surprised but hopeful that this means they have something good up their magical Target Beauty Box sleeves!


I didn’t know Target posted spoilers. Where do you find them?


June’s box went on sale Monday June 6th. I’m crazy, I keep a ledger of box purchases.


July went on sale already?


Nay, fear not, it has not gone on sale yet. We’re all camped out, figuratively speaking. Spoilers haven’t even been released yet. We’re all confused because this goes against the trend of Target’s releasing these boxes.


I don’t think so. Hopefully we’ll see previews soon!


I Missed July box?


No… haven’t even had spoilers for July yet.


Thank you. I work nights, im checking every 5 min. I was like how did I miss it. lol.


Don’t they know we’re

Anna C.



I need spoilers for July!!!!!!!

Is the Target Beauty Box available today Mon. 7/4?…If someone knows either way please let me know. If it won’t be I want to go to bed….anyone????


Hi chae, no it isn’t on sale yet, I just checked and they still have the June box up, no sign of July 🙁


Same here, we should have them by now..maybe after July 4th? I can’t imagine they’d skip a month they’ve been monthly from the beginning.

Leslie ae

I’m holding my breath….please let there be a July box!


What about the review for the Men’s box?


Liz the Nail Art looks cute on you, and nicely applied. I am curious how long they last and if they hold up to regular daily use (washing dishes, etc.)?


I stay up half the night waiting for them to go on sale. Usually 2 am Central time. I’m glad Monday is a holiday and I don’t have to work ?


I’m not sure I would bet on them going on sale monday, unless they are doing a special surprise box. They always release the spoilers before the box becomes available, which hasn’t happened yet. But also it’s the long weekend, so I doubt anyones working on the box right now. Though I’ll probably be with you staying up forever just incase, sigh, the addiction is real. Here’s to hoping for a surprise super awesome 4th of July box!


My eyeshadow was broken, too, so I emailed them and they refunded my total box price, plus sent me a $5 e-giftcard!


Ugh my eye shadow was broken when I received it. Didn’t know they do that. Every month I get something either leaky or broken. I wish I had know this before. Thanks for the info! ♡


Thank you Target for a shampoo and conditioner sample worth the while! It is nice to get such generous sample sizes. To get a feel of a hair product you really do need to use it more than once and with the usual tiny bottles it feels like there is more left in the bottle, stuck to the sides than in my hand. I was unsure about the shampoo at first because I have very oily roots and scalp, it is hard to find a shampoo that can keep my hair feeling clean all day. But I was very impressed, it cleaned well and moisturized my dry ends and worked really well together with the Shea conditioner. I totally didn’t expect to like those products, much less as a pair!


I received the Cotz item, however I did not receive the Pixi Palette. Customer Service said they no longer have any in stock, so they refunded my debit card for $3.00


This was my first Target box and I am very impressed with the value! My box arrived in a timely fashion with all the items in perfect condition. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will be lucky enough to catch the July box, and maybe one for my fiance if they release a men’s boxy for July as well 🙂
