Now, on to the items!
Nexxus Humectress Hair Mask – 1.5 oz. Retail Value $3.99
This hair mask is designed to treat and hydrate dry hair. You comb it through wet hair post-shampoo, let sit for 3-5 minutes, then wash off – easy! It smells lovely, and I think I noticed a difference in my hair after using it, but I only used about a third of the package in fear of overdoing it and ending up with greasy hair. Next time, I’ll use the remainder of the package.
Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Polish – 1 oz. Value $.60
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this new body scrub from Dove, and I was pleasantly surprised! It’s a creamy scrub made with crushed Macadamia nuts, so it’s very gentle on your skin, and the scent was fresh, too. If you like a light and gentle scrub that doesn’t leave your skin oily, I recommend it.
Pretty Animalz Tiger Sheet Mask – Tiger- 1 ct. Retail Value $3.99
This is a simple hydrating mask that makes you look like a tiger! (As if my husband, Eric, needs more reasons to be startled when he sees me wearing a sheet mask.) You leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then let any excess product absorb. I found it so hydrating that I skipped my nighttime moisturizer after using it.
OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo – 3 oz Retail Value $2.99
(Target lists this sample as .3 oz, but it is actually 3 oz!)
This sulfate-free shampoo is designed to “help thicken and texturize any hair type with just one use.” To be honest, I couldn’t tell any difference after using it, but I loved the scent, and just a little bit provided a rich lather, so this sample should last me several showers.
Vichy Mineral 89 – 5 ml Value $2.95
This moisturizer is so unique! It has a gel-like consistency, and it’s made with Mineralizing Water with Hyaluronic Acid to “fortify skin and make it more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin.”
The formula absorbed almost instantly, and my skin felt more hydrated as well.
CoverGirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick #110 – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $6.89
When I saw this, my first thought was of the Too Faced Melted Lipstick. I think the products are similar, but the Too Faced Melted Lipstick lasts longer in my opinion. Both provide great pigment and a good amount of shine. I think this is a pretty good dupe at less than half the price.
Here it is swatched:
(And the formula is scent/flavor free.)
Mrs. Meyer’s Body Wash in Lavender – 2 oz. Value $1
(Scents will vary)
I didn’t know Mrs. Meyer’s had a bath line! I like the cleaning products from this brand, so I was excited to try out the body wash. It’s a light-lather formula with the same scents you know from their home line. One thing to mention – the scent is lovely but washes away. If you are looking for a body wash scent that stays with you post-shower, this isn’t for you.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $22.41. That’s great for a $7 Target beauty box, plus the $3 beauty coupon always adds value to me. And I liked everything in this box! The sizes of the items were good, too.
