Target Beauty Box Review – August 2017
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it usually sells out very quickly. (This box is actually still available, though!)

Now, on to the items!
up & up Facial Wipes – FULL SIZE! Value $3.84
These wipes don’t have great reviews on Target, so I was expecting not to like them, but they worked well for me! They took care of removing makeup and didn’t irritate my skin – no complaints!
Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strip -1 ct Value $1
I’ve been using Biore pore strips for years, and I’m always happy to get more in a box! There’s just something wonderful about a beauty product that gives you a clear before-and-after!
If you haven’t tried these before, I can’t recommend them enough. Just make sure your skin is wet, apply the nose strip, wait 10-15 minutes, then slowly remove and the strip literally takes the dirt and oil out of your clogged pores! Magic!
Dove Clear Finish Dry Spray Deodorant – FULL SIZE! Value $5.49
When it comes to trying new beauty products, I’m pretty reluctant to use anything but a stick deodorant. I’m glad I made myself to try this to review it, though – I’m now a spray deodorant fan!
This goes on completely clear as promised, and it is instantly dry, too. I don’t mind the scent, and the scent stayed with me all day, too. I think this actually works better than my regular Secret stick!
Herbal Essences Argan Oil Shampoo – 1.4 oz Value $.60
This is one of the best Herbal Essences fragrances I’ve sampled. I also appreciate the formula is paraben-free and color safe! The sample is large enough to cover two washes, too.
Garnier Clearly Brighter Daily Scrub – 1 oz Value $1.25
This is a foaming gel cleanser with argan nut shell powder as an exfoliant. It’s not the finest scrub, but it didn’t irritate or dry out my skin. The scent is pleasant, too.
SpaLife Nourishing Facial Mask – 1 ct Value $2.49
The eye holes in this mask were a bit annoying, so I did something I should have thought to do years ago with sheet masks – I cut it into several pieces to fit my face perfectly!
The mask was hydrating and gentle on my skin – nothing special, but no complaints. (Edit: one complaint: I wish this mask REALLY smelled like oranges. I love citrus scents so the lack of fragrance was a bit of a letdown!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $15. I think that’s good for a $7 beauty box. Given the lower value, I’m not surprised that this box didn’t sell out immediately. The full-size deodorant is a win for me, though, and everything else is usable. So I’m getting $15 value out of this box, and the coupon is icing on the cake!
