  1. My $10 box came last Tuesday and my $5 box came today- same tracking number I guess- as I only got one.

    Love ❤️ both…

    • I just got my $10 box, but not the $5. Contacted Target as they had provided only one tracking number. They wanted to know if I wanted a refund or a replacement box. Just for the heck of it, I requested the replacement box. The are sending the $5 replacement box rush – How can they if it’s sold out?! Anyway, I’ll see if I get two $5 boxes, one or none. Ah, the mystery of it all!

  2. Just got mine today, got two of the vaseline lotions instead of one, and one coconut oil lotion. Anyone else get that?

  3. I just got my $10 box today and it’s identical to the photo. I really like it and think it’s a pretty good value considering everything in there. I liked it so much ordered another one lol.

  4. I just ordered the $5 box. I think they restocked! Hopefully it goes through. I missed it Monday by 8:45 am my time. I was kicking myself for falling asleep before 12 am pst. Never again!! 😄

    • Darn it. My screen shows unavailable still.

  5. FYI I’ve been getting both Target and Walmart boxes. Walmart has been my favorite recently. Their sizes of samples seem to get bigger every month… Mine is the “classic” (old people) box. Anyway, just thought I’d mention that since everybody is excited about the $5 box 🙂

    • Yup, I got those in the fall. I am “a lady of a certain age” (36), I get the old lady “classic” box. I added a second box to my account with a more recent birth year so that I get the “trendsetter” box as well. My winter boxes are processing and have been since 12/29. I’m wondering when they will ship. Have yours shipped yet?

      At one point I was getting all the Target beauty boxes, the random Amazon beauty boxes, as well as Birchbox, Glossybox, and Sephora Play. Holy product overload, Batman! I now only buy Target boxes when I want (which is all of them, let’s be honest here), and I can drop Wal-Mart whenever. I haven’t bought Amazon in a while because they haven’t appealed to me. It’s nice having a say in whether or not I want to buy, except with Wal-Mart, but for $5 each it’s hard to complain.

    • I’ve been getting both the classic and trendsetter Walmart boxes and I agree they have been better. This is the first month I’ve finally decided to sit out on targets box because I’m just super unimpressed every month. Just this month alone in my Walmart classic I got a full size mascara that paid for the box right there! Not to mention everything else.

  6. Just ordered box 1. Paid 0.88cents, I had (2) $5 store gift cards loaded that I forgot about. This is their last chance to get it right for me. Evrytime in past I ordered there was a separate charge on my charge card bill for loaded gift cards or free gift cards with purchase. I always take a screenshot of my order as well so they find it hard to argue with me and have no choice but to refund it.

    • Ugggg! Didn’t know the 12 days was still available ! I would of rather done that!!

  7. Did anyone order both (or more than one of either box), get shipping confirmations for both, but have the same tracking number for both?

    I just got the shipping confirmation for the second of the two boxes, and the tracking number is the same as the first shipping confirmation. When I go to the Target site to track my order, there’s only one tracking number for both boxes. That happened to me last month with the men’s and women’s box as well. I have never had Target ship more than one beauty box together in over a year of ordering these, including several months of buying two boxes, but what is it with their system that they can’t seem to provide more than one tracking number for an order? So weird.

    • I have never received more than one either in the past

    • Mine haven’t even shipped yet, not sure what is taking so long. But I noticed this last month as well. I don’t think the tracking info for the second box was viewable until after I had already received my first box.

      I don’t know why but I received one box like a week later than the other, even though the orders were placed at the same time. Slightly frustrating.

    • I ended up ordering both the $5 and $10 dollar boxes, and got the same tracking number for both. I received the $10 box on Saturday but not the $5 box, and the tracking number then said “delivered” for both boxes. I’m not sure if the $5 box will show up or not, but the Target rep I chatted with online was really nice and gave me a refund. If I end up eventually receiving the $5 box, I’ll be sure to spend my refund at Target 🙂 I wonder if having the same tracking number for both boxes caused some kind of snafu?

    • The same thing happen to me the same tracking number for both boxes,I received the 10.00 box but not the 5.00 box…..I called target and supposedly both boxes were suppose to be shipped together….the person I spoke to said they have received a lot of phone calls this past week about the same situation,kind of weird if you ask me……I could see this happening to a few people but how does this happen to a lot of people,supposedly the 5.00 box is lost for a lot of people…..I was online right at 3 am when they went on sale so I was one of the first people to purchase the boxes and now it is lost…..anyways she is sending me another one of the 10.00 box and if they get anymore of the 5.00 boxes in stock she will send me another one of them,and maybe the one that is lost still might show up….if all this really happens 15.00, for 4 boxes is a great deal,however I only see them sending me another 10.00 box….I think they ran out of the 5.00 boxes and that is why they supposedly got lost,but two of the 10.00 boxes for 15.00 is still a good deal,so I am ok with it,however I really did want the 5.00 box,I guess its just not meant to be lol

      • Oh no! I’m still waiting on my $5 box, too. I was hoping it would still be delivered, but now I guess I’ll never get it. I also ordered mine right away, around 3 am.

        • Both my boxes have the same tracking number and they’ve been chilling at our post office since the sixth

      • And they have the same excact weight how is that even possible

        • Oops, just received the $5 box in today’s mail! Now I feel bad about getting the refund. I do hope Target does separate tracking numbers in the future!

          • Still haven’t received any if mine ,since the 6th it’s said they were at my post office .Today the wording has changed a little to make it see lime they just got them…no idea what’s going on but I’ve desided if I don’t get them tomorrow a phone call will be needed

    • I received the $10.00 box yesterday but not the $5.00 box, and they had the same tracking number. Also the shipping confirmation emails were days apart.

      • Just got the 5 dollar one today so it wasn’t lost.

  8. Skipped them both. The only products this time around that I could both use and would like, I already have. Rare to skip a month. They did look like good boxes.

  9. Just FYI to those who don’t have time to do online chats or call Target customer service, I forwarded my order confirmation to [email protected] yesterday around midday and got an e-mail just now that they are crediting $3 back to my card for the coupon that I was unable to use. I’m sure my coupon is still good for use because I didn’t give them the code, but I’ll be tossing it. I know it’s only $3 to Target, but I’m too honest, I guess!

  10. The $10 box is still available but nothing in it excites me. I swore I was not going to get that advent calendar but it has things I would use more than the $10 box so I’m about to cave in and use it with a $5 credit I have. I wonder if the price will go down even more on the advent calendar?

  11. It is 2pm eat and I just ordered the 10 dollars box… the one I wanted… I have a Red Card so maybe Those of you could try signing into Target website and try. Hope this helos6

    • est… Not eat.. LoL

    • Should be helps… I’m sure Y’all knew that though.. Geeze… Must have heavy fingers today lol. Oh.. Meant to add.. I have just the Membership Red Card.. Not a Target CC

  12. Thanks for the email in the middle of the night Liz. I was able to pick up both when I got up at 4 am EST to change my 10 month old son who always poops in the middle of the night. Happy New Year!

  13. Box 2 is sold out. I wish I checked my email earlier. Main & Tail shampoo is my life and those make up remover wipes are amazing. That’s finally a good box

  14. Should have checked my email when I first woke up. $5 box is gone and I really wanted that box. Bummer

    • Me too. So mad i missed the box i wanted. 😔

    • Me too. I’m EST and had this been a regular work day, I’d have been up. My employer is closed today and I’m sick so I slept really, REALLY late. 🙁

  15. The 2nd box is now sold out – darn – its the better box for me and I would have paid $7/10 for it.

    • Oh I hear ya! I missed out too and that looks like a better box. I slept in really late because I have been sick, and I forgot they were probably going on sale today.

  16. Yay! Got both boxes and thanks to customer service I got my $3 coupon added so $12 for both boxes! I’m pretty excited to try most of the products this time around. Last months was more of a stocking stuffer purchase for my younger cousin:)

  17. 8:41am Pacific and I had my $5 box removed from my cart because it was no longer available…wow. I didn’t really need it anyway!

    • Same thing happened to me while I was putting in the payment info. I hate that! I guess I didn’t need it either because then I decided not to buy anything. I was also going to buy the second box and the advent calendar.

      • That was my intent as well. Loaded my cart, fixed lunch for kids, and it was sold out. So Target lost a $30 sale 🙁

  18. I just had a very unsatisfactory chat with a customer service agent who told me the coupons are not good on the beauty boxes, only other items. She is, of course, wrong, given what others were told, and I told her other agents were applying the coupons for other customers but she insisted she was right. I won’t be buying these today just sort of on principle, I guess: the $3 wouldn’t make or break the purchase. Just beware, they might not apply your unworking coupon from Dec.!

    • That’s crummy! As long as you ordered both boxes the total was $15…I had already used mine at the store so I couldn’t get any extra off.

      I’ve run into CS agents on b4 that I swear we’re new to the system because they gave me wrong info.

  19. Called customer service and they applied last months promo code.
    $12.28 for both boxes is a good deal to me!

  20. I ordered both boxes and started a chat in order to get the $3 coupon. I had to complete my order first and the agent refunded me $3 after the order was complete.

  21. I got both but box 1 is the best. I can’t wait to try the eb5 cream. I have the eb5 eye cream and it works great. I also love the lip balm, Burts Bees and the lip scrub.

  22. I just ordered both boxes. I tried to use last months coupon code with the boxes and with just beauty items and it didn’t work. I put in the order because I was worried they would sell out and then I contacted customer service. She applied the discount but asked that next time I contact them before placing the order (totally fair).

    You can find the chat option under help > contact us

    I’m not sure why the codes aren’t working this time, but the rep I got was very patient and helpful. Excited about both of these boxes.

    • My chat agent refused to apply the coupon (before OR after purchase), she insisted that it was not valid on these boxes (despite anecdotal evidence to the contrary here). I told her their CS response is inconsistent and decided not to buy this time.

      • These comments caused me to pursue the coupon hours later. I just assumed when it didn’t work, it didn’t apply in this case. . . no so. I suppose it depends on the chat agent. This is the 2nd rebate I got as a result of reading the MSA comments regarding target boxes (the other one was a price drop). $3 dollars back to me 🙂

  23. I purchased (2) of the box #2 ! More practical for me.

  24. Box #2 has everything I’ll actually use. At only 5 bucks it is a steal for me. I’m glad I was able to pick it up. Thanks for the heads up, Liz!

  25. GM! Are they gone? I only see the 12 days of beauty box on their site. TIA!

    • No, I just bought box #2. But both of them are still available.

    • Type in January Beauty box in the search and it should pop up. One of the links on here does not pop it up but if you click on target box 2 link it works fine 😉

      • Thank you, Ronda & Shakira!

    • Use the links to the boxes that Liz provided. I just bought both (10 am EST)

    • I JUST NOW (11:50 EST, Monday, Jan 2) ordered the Target beauty box. I was able to order Box 1 for $10, but Box 2 for $5 was listed as Out of Stock when I checked out. It is in my “Saved for later” list, so we will see if it comes back in stock…

  26. In order to get the discount processes should I use the chat before or after I place my order?

    • I started while the items were in my cart but the guy had me place the order and then he processed the discount. He says the coupon isn’t working due to a technical error.

  27. Got box 2! $5 is a wonderful deal!

  28. Really happy! 2 days ago I got the 12 Days of Beauty Faves Advent Calendar at 50% off and today I just scored the $5.00 Beauty Box. Between the 2 I will get to try everything and I feel I got great deals. The $5.00 box was more appealing to me than the $10.00 box so I will let that one slide. Thanks!

  29. Box 2 has everything I wanted to try except for the lemon rinse. All practical items and a great deal for $ deal they’ve had in a while!

    • Don’t feel badly about missing out on the lemon rinse, kathyb. I got it in a Glossybox last year. While it smelled nice, I didn’t notice it doing anything special to my hair. The best “clarifying” treatment out there is vinegar!

      • Agreed that the lemon rinse isn’t all that. I also got it from Glossybox and had it in my shower forever. It didn’t find that it did much of anything.

      • Thanks for the tip! I follow the curly girl method, so there is always talk about a lemonade rinse, and I thought this might be similar. Now I won’t bother! 🙂

  30. I bought the $10 box because both lip products by themselves total $10 and they are both items I want so everything else is a bonus. I wound up buying the $5 box as well because I’m sure I’ll use some of that stuff, definitely the toothpaste and face wipes.

    Thanks, Liz. I would have missed this month for sure with today being a holiday.

  31. I’m in for the $5 one. Several products that I want my son to try on his super coarse, thick hair so it’s worth it for me. I can always list anything on swap that we won’t use. $10 box wasn’t even tempting this time.

  32. If anyone is having issues with using the $3 coupon from last month’s box, I suggest getting in touch with a chat agent and they will apply the discount manually. Here is my code in case anyone wants it: DHRTCYPWN9XBXML

  33. I’m a huge fan of practical items in these boxes so I’m thrilled to get both the wipes and the toothpaste in the $5 box, along with the Carols Leave in Conditioner. There was only one item in the other box I really wanted to try (the Nexus hairspray) but that’s not worth buying a $10 box.

    For the record – I don’t like Target putting makeup into these boxes. At the $5 – $10 price point, the options are really limited. I’d rather get items I can use than a super cheap eyeliner or another garish red or pink Cover Girl lipstick. I love getting facial soap, razors, deodorant, hair ties, bath products, and the like.

    • I buy them specifically for the makeup items (mostly the mascara).

  34. Thanks for the heads up Liz.

    I got box #2. I think target is playing around with their price point.

    • I got one of each but totally agree with you on the testing the price point comment.

  35. Thanks for the email, I finally got my first 2 Target boxes as well as the advent calendar – couldn’t resist that one. Delighted with this website especially to keep track of the boxes I subscribe to. If it wasn’t for MSA I would’ve never known about the Target Beauty box. Thank you for a great website with lovely people.
    Question: will the swap waitlist be open anytime soon? Projected wait time? Thanks in advance. I hope everyone has a terrific 2017, this was a great way to start it!

  36. Glad they’re doing two price versions. and finally switching the products up.

    What I really want to know is if they’re doing a fitness box again this year

  37. I’ll pass on both. Fun to look but I got stung on the Two Faced Mystery Box from last month…no thanks. I’ve got enough stuff to last a lifetime. I will say Target boxes have more things that are useful to me and an interesting variety although I’m never ever going to use any of the shampoos or conditioners they send. I’ll take the $15 I could have spent and donate it to a an animal charity. Happy New Year everyone!

    • I got the Too Faced Mystery Box and loved it- but I heard some people were not happy with it at all. I’m new to the brand so maybe that’s why I didn’t have any of the items.

      • I’m the same. I was ready to absolutely hate it, because everybody else did, but when I received it I actually really liked it!

        • Can I ask what you received since I missed out on this.And did everyone get the same stuff?

  38. Thank you got both boxes ,also just to let everyone know I also got the advent calendar for 12.49

  39. Happy New Years, everyone!!!

    Thanks, Liz!

    Got both boxes, bummer couldn’t use the coupon tho.

  40. I ordered box #2. The first box doesn’t interest me. I’m glad the second box was cheaper 🙂

  41. I just ordered my two boxes,9 items in each box…..The 5.00 box has 3 foil products and 6 deluxe samples….and the 10.00 box has 2 foil samples and 7 deluxe products….not too bad,just wish all the products were deluxe and no foil,but we cant always get what we want….they are still worth the money,I hope everyone that wants them can get them…..and I would like to wish all of you on here,A Happy New Year 2017,I hope the new year finds all of you and your family’s happy and healthy.

    • Thank you Tina for the good wishes-back at ya!

  42. MSA, thank you for the email! I just purchased both boxes and I am excited to see different items this time from Target.

    • YAY! You are welcome! 🙂

  43. I ordered both boxes, but the app wouldn’t let me use my coupon from December. Oh well, so instead I used a free $10 gift card I had. Total cost for me with tax was $15.25 (minus the gift card was $5.25) for both.

    Really, I think the $5 box looks better than the $10 box lol.

    • My coupon from the December men’s box expired 12/3/16 🙁

      • Chat with the customer service, they gave me a $3 egift card since it was expired when it arrived.

    • I agree with the $5 box lol. But of course I ordered both hahaha

  44. I got both boxes. I will use some and give some away.
    Wasn’t able to apply my $3 coupon from last months box – anyone know why?

    • The app wouldn’t let me use mine either.

      • Me, either. Also no go in combo with the advent calendar (also tried 2 advent calendars in the cart, no luck–so maybe none of the beauty boxes count as the beauty category anymore?)

        • Get in touch with an agent by chat, they will process the discount manually

          • Should we chat before or after we place our orders?

    • Got both. Thanks Liz!! 🙂
      Now I can go to sleep lol
      BTW, wasn’t able to apply the promo code as well… Tried both normal mobile safari and request desktop mobile safari, neither worked…

      • I couldn’t use my promo code either,And I bought both plus spent another 12.50

    • Me, neither. Maybe the boxes weren’t applicable.

      • Get in touch with an agent by chat, they will process the discount manually

        • How do you chat? I don’t see that option.

          • Me neither I couldn’t use my discount coupon and I received 3 of the outdated coupons from the men’s boxes.And I’ve tried several times and chat is never available

    • Do you mind passing on your coupon code if you aren’t going to use it? I need to make a beauty purchase that doesn’t include the box. Thanks!

      • Did you get a coupon yet? Ill look in my daughters coupons cause I’m pretty sure she said she had one-

        • Nope I have havent. Ya would be appreciated!

          • Wow sorry my phone freaked out a bit there! I have not found a code yet and would appreciate it! Thanks

          • Ok-Found it!

            DHR79FKGCP7BXML expires 1/7/17

            She won’t use it b4 it expires & I used a gift card on my BB order already.

      • They just refunded me $3 instead of using the code. So, you probably can still use it. DHRY73TW939BXML It expires 1/7

  45. Awesome, and I’m actually up to purchase it! I got box 2, not too interested in everything in box one.

    • I was up too and ordered them from the app about 2 minutes before I got Liz’ email.
