Target Beauty Box Review – September 2016

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 Moisture Cream – .6 oz Value $12.80


An alternative title for Target Beauty Box could also be “Laneige and Friends!” (This brand is seriously in every Target Beauty Box!)

Fortunately for me, I always love getting Laneige in Target boxes! This moisturizer is super hydrating, gentle, and just feels great on my skin – Laneige knows how to do skincare!


Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick in Naughty Nude – FULL SIZE! Value $7


This is pretty much a perfect lipstick for me. It goes on slightly sheer so you can build color, it’s moisturizing, and I found the shade to be very wearable. Here it is swatched:



Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $7.50


I’ve sampled this mascara before, and I’d give it a C+. I had issues with clumping, lash definition, and waiting for the formula to dry. (For what it is worth, I think you could get decent results if you make sure to wait long enough for it to mostly dry before applying the second layer.)


Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser – 1 oz Value $.90

I’m a Biore fan thanks to their pore strips, so I was excited to try this. It’s a cleanser and exfoliant combination – and it was gentle enough to use daily – I’m hooked!


S. W. Basics Organic Lip Balm – Value $5


S.W. Basics make the best lip balms! They are made with only 5 organic ingredients (cocoa butter, coconut oil, beeswax and cardamom and cinnamon essential oils.)

The formulas are ridiculously moisturizing, and the essential oil blends are wonderful, too. (I love this cinnamon flavor for fall!)


Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner – 1.75 oz Value $1

This is a 15-30 minute deep conditioning mask. I gave it about 5 minutes since I’m not great at waiting, and I wasn’t a big fan of the scent. (It’s a pretty strong tea tree oil fragrance.)

I still could feel benefits, though – it made my hair much softer and it didn’t leave it overly oily, either.


OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo – 2 oz Value $.90

(Customers will either receive the shampoo or the conditioner.) This sample is smaller than I expected! I should get at least 2 uses out of it, though. While I usually can’t tell the difference between the effectiveness of most shampoos, this one stood out to me as being very moisturizing (and the coconut scent is a nice perk, too!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $35. I think that’s a great value for a $10 beauty box, even if the mascara isn’t for me. Everything else is great, and I love that I got a few of my favorite brands/products and got to sample a few new ones, too!

  1. Sooo glad I read the comments! Target let me exchange the awful berry colored lipstick they send me for the promised nude color- absolutely love it. ?
