Here are the items that will be featured in the new Target Women’s Beauty Box:



(FYI – I’m not including Maybelline mascara that is listed on the Target Beauty Box page, because it was in a previous box, so I’m assuming it just still is on the page, but not included this time.)

  1. I ordered both the mens and womens box. Women’s s box missing an item. Men’s box contained expired coupon. I called and they gave me a $5 credit. They said they would send a replacement women’s box and they did. Was beginning to doubt it but it arrived today.

  2. I am done looking at this box, and totally done buying it until Target makes it a proper subscription, most of the time after the initial excitement of a new box, and the rush to get it before it sells out I look back and think: What was so fantastic in this box? Usually nothing or its one item I could have just spent a bit more and gotten a full sized bottle of.

    Then people buy a bunch of them, which seems unfair, and a touch greedy, others are missing out totally and others have 5 or 6 boxes, and they fuel that by making it limited quantity and not just making it a monthly or quarterly box.

    I’d like it to be like the walmart box ( only maybe better quality WBB is failing with Winter 2016) every 3 months they put out a 10 or 12 dollar box and put the effort into better themed and better quality boxes.

  3. Sadly it looks like I missed out on the beauty box, I really love the Outlast lipstick. But I did manage to pick up 3 of the men’s boxes for stocking stuffers.

  4. I also had to place 3 separate orders to get the number of boxes I wanted. Wish they would let you just order all on one order but have it down to a quick routine now! Lol And the grandson likes getting his sent to his house so that is a plus. Found with college granddaughter when I order and send things dIrectly to her it is faster, easy and she loves getting mail!

  5. Just ordered a few. note:you can only order one of each per checkout. I thought the contents would be perfect stocking stuffers, especially the men’s boxes. We used to do over the top stockings ($200+) but agreed to keep below $50 this year. This is all a better deal than hitting up CVS/Walgreens on the 24th. My mom and I always end up swapping a few items, anyway!

  6. Got up to let dog out (3 am cst) and checked to see if available..why not!…and the boxes were up! Got one of each to be sent to granddaughter at college (for her and her boyfriend), one of each to be sent to grandson in high school and his mom AND one of each for me! Haha Score all around! Grandson loved the Target boxes I have got him and granddaughter volunteers at shelter so any items not used are donated to a good cause. I have been wanting to try the the conditioner first-shampoo 2nd so that may be asked for from other 2 boxes if they don’t want to type it! Lol

  7. I don’t want a red lipstick. I’m not getting the women’s, obviously. Sad.

  8. Two boxes- women’s box is $10.00, men’s box is $7.00. They are up now.

  9. It’s up!


  11. It’s up!

  12. Really disappointed to see that 2 of the women’s products contain parabens. The derma e and sunscreen products are great thought – will wait to see what the price point is tomorrow morning.

    Target, ditch the paraben-containing products in the beauty boxes.

    • Totally agree.
      Although most of what target sells is “bad for you” i wish they would do an all natural/organic box and promote their made to matter products. That i would buy.

    • I personally think there is too much hype about parabens and sulfates. I’ve done a lot of research and what I hate seeing are all the products that are not cruelty-free. Target carries a number of cruelty-free, affordable products. It’s cheaper for all these big name cosmetic companies to remove parabens from their products than it is for them to remove their products from China. Because Loreal, Revlon, Almay, Maybelline, etc all want to sell in China they agree to animal testing.

  13. Hi, I was wondering, If the Target Mens Box that was up for Sale last month I believe if other buyers already received theirs? I ordered 2 and have yet to receive them. Just wondering.

    • Anyone that ordered the men’s box last month, was sent an email saying they canceled the order. They didn’t say why it was canceled. So you shouldn’t be charged on your credit card. It did say it was a holiday box, so I think they messed up and put it up to early, so they just canceled all orders.

  14. What time of day are these released? Just wondering how early I need to get up. Thanks

  15. I’m interested in the women’s box, but I’ll have to wait & see what the price point is.

  16. First Target box I’m even interested in for months now! Will be up early checking on it.

    • same here, i’ve skipped the last several.

  17. This one is a maybe for me. I’ll decide when the real details are out.

  18. I just realized that the $3 off coupon that came in last months November box expired yesterday 12/3. Booooo. The box usually goes on sale before the coupon expires from the previous month. They need to make those coupon work for longer periods of time. I bought a box and received one for free so now I have two coupons I can’t use. If anyone knows of any promo codes please post them for me.

  19. Underwhelming 😭

  20. I want the makeup bag. It’s so pretty!

  21. I like the women’s box, but the men’s box seems to be mostly soap. :/

  22. FYI Target Gift Cards are on sale for 10% off today so if you wanted to buy one to use towards these boxes tomorrow that would save a little extra money! It says they are redeemable starting at 10 AM CT tomorrow so idk if that will effect these purchases or not?

  23. I can not locate the December Beauty Box on Targets website. What am I missing? Help! 😕

  24. This looks great! I’m guessing it will be 2 boxes or pretty pricey if the bag is included but I will definitely be checking it out in the AM to see if it’s a good deal. I’m kinda obsessed with long lasting lipsticks right now so I would love to try this one since it is way cheaper ($8!) than others I use (Stila $24, Smashbox $24, Sephora $14)!

    • I use all these brands as well, and I have tried several drugstore brands to find a cheaper alternative. The closest match I have found is milani amore liquid lip at Walgreens for 7.99. This one is ok but the look is not matte, and it when it starts to wear off it crumbles and pills up. I will still get this box and use it though cause its a good deal with all the other stuff.

  25. I will get this box for the hair ties and the bag (hopefully they will include it), everything else are just bonuses😊

    • Same here, really want the hair ties and cute bag. Guess that means I have too many skin and beauty products piled up.

  26. I’ve tried that tresseme shampoo and conditioner and it’s actually pretty awesome. You’re supposed to use the conditioner before shampooing. I may get the box if they include both but not if its just one or the other.

  27. Finally they started including hair ties again, that was one of my favorite things to get in those boxes! I haven’t gotten a Target box in a year or so, but the contents of this one look good. Some new players – no Laneige!

    I think I’ll snag one, and the men’s one would be good for my husband too!

  28. yes! I will be setting my alarm for this one! Looks like they are trying to make up for the last beauty box that wasn’t selling as fast they usually do. Makes me wonder what the price will be if all the items are just for 1 box.

    • Hello, im Teresa and im new 😉 lol. .I have a question, what time do they usually go on sale?

      • Teresa, they go up pretty early (usually 5-6 is when I grab them).

  29. I look forward to seeing what is actually in the box. Then I’ll decide if I’m ordering them! =) Maybe I could get a few so I could put some of the stuff in my parents’ stockings, as they’re spending Christmas with us this year.

  30. I’ll be trying to get this!!!

  31. Based on the number of items,I wonder if there are two women’s boxes and the men’s box. They’ve done two in the past a time or two. That’s a lot of product in one box.

    • They. Could have 1 box but some items will vary… like the box will have either shampoo or conditioner.
      Hopefully they don’t bc I know a lot of people don’t really like that. If you’re going to include a shampoo or conditioner, then include the other one too

      • I’m hoping that it’s either one giant box or two boxes with set products.

        Definitely want the La Roche Posay Anthelios. Would be happy with the Derma-E, CoverGirl, and cosmetics bag. Hoping to avoid the Almay and TRESemme.

        • My dermatologist believe that the La Roche Posay Anthelios is among the best sun screens out there.

          • I used to buy a few bottles of it in France years ago (when I traveled more!) because it just wasn’t available here. I wear it year-round now… it’s so light and lovely.

  32. Not interested in this one at all. None of the products appeal to me. Looking forward to January!

  33. I’m wondering if the inclusion of the makeup case could bump the price over $15 or even $20. I can’t see how they could afford to offer it in a $7 – $10 box. I suspect shipping would also be affected, unless they create a new, much bigger, black box container. Doesn’t look like the case can be shipped shrink-wrapped on its own.

  34. That cosmetic bag is my favorite.

    • I hope that’s included.

  35. This looks great! I hope to get both the Men’s and Women’s.
    There is a 10% discount on Target gift cards today, but it says the card won’t be active until 10 CT, which by then the Beauty Boxes might be out of stock.

    That gives me a clue that they most likely will be live tomorrow!

    • 10 CT tomorrow 12/5

      • Thanks!

  36. Oh yay! I’m so loving ALL the products this time. I’ll absolutely be getting one.

  37. Anthelios is a very pricey sunscreen so I’m wondering what size it will actually be.

    • We have gotten this sample in a Target box before. It was enough for me to use on my face for four days. It’s my favorite sunscreen by far.

  38. Oh, yes yes yes!!! Is there a certain time on Mondays that these usually go on sale? I would just cry if I missed these two… (like the baby box)

    • They are typically available when I wake up at 6:30 Eastern time.

  39. This looks awesome!! 👍🏼

  40. Well, of course I’m getting one. I always do, regardless of the spoilers and I haven’t regretted it yet!
