Now, on to the items!
Chapstick Total Hydration in Blood Orange – FULL SIZE! Value $3
I first discovered the Chapstick Total Hydration lip balms thanks to subscription boxes, and I LOVE them! The formula is moisturizing, provides only a faint sheen, and the flavors are great, too.
This one goes on clear, and the Blood Orange is just as good as it sounds. (The only thing I noticed that was different about this packaging and the other flavors I’ve sampled is that this one isn’t branded as “all natural.” Bit of a bummer!)
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub – 1 oz Value $.60
I think this might be the most popular and most controversial face scrub of all time? It was the face scrub of my teen years, so sampling it gave me a bit of a beauty flash back! I’m not digging the artificial apricot scent, but the scrub worked well for me. (Word of caution – some people have found the walnut shell powder scrub particles to be too harsh. Spot test first if you have sensitive skin!)
Curls Blueberry Leave In Conditioner – 1 oz Value $1.50
This is one of those beauty samples that would have benefited from different packaging – the plastic bottle is a little too firm to easily squeeze out the hair cream. But, however you get to the formula, it will be worth it! This creme works on dry or wet hair and is excellent for adding moisture. (The blueberry scent is lovely, too.)
Look Beauty Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Mask – FULL SIZE! Value $4
Ah, sheet masks with faces on them. (Also known as new ways for me to scare my husband.)
I thought the Homer Simpson sheet mask was the creepiest mask I’ve seen on, but this may be the winner! (The rosy cheeks have a bit of a scary clown vibe – I did not look like the adorable panda on the packaging at all!)
Nightmares aside, the sheet mask formula itself was nice. The scent was light and clean, and the serum was hydrating.
Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo – 15 ml Value $.45
Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Blow Out Creme – 15 ml Value $.90
SheaMoisture is one of my favorite drugstore brands. They are ingredient-conscious, their formulas work well, and their scents smell fab, too!
I liked both of these products. The shampoo is a solid contender, and the blow out creme helped with moisture and frizz. (The sample is way too much for one use, though.)
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion – 1.7 oz Value $.80
This body lotion is SO moisturizing! And a little goes a long way, too! It didn’t leave my skin too greasy either – just a light sheen.
Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme – 1.75 oz Value $1
My hair is wavy at best, so this curl defining creme isn’t for me, but it will be donated! (And it gets good reviews on Amazon!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $12.25. I think that’s decent for a $7 beauty box. My favorite items are the chapstick and the leave-in conditioner, but this box didn’t wow me as much as most Target Beauty Boxes do.
