This box comes with an info card and a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more:

Now, on to the items!

Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life Body Buffer – 1.69 oz Value $2.90

This is like a scrub + body wash hybrid. It lathers, exfoliates, and has the signature Soap & Glory scent – I like it!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Lotion SPF55 – 1oz Value $2.66

This sunscreen absorbs quickly, gives your skin a dry/matte finish, and is water resistant for 80 minutes. Plus this is a decent sized sample, too. (It’s 1/3 the size of the full-size version!)

St. Ives Cactus Water & Hibiscus Cleansing Stick – FULL SIZE! Value $7.89

This cleansing stick is new to me, and I’m a fan! I love the ease of a stick (you just wet your face, apply the stick, then massage with your fingertips.) The formula was gentle, didn’t dry out my skin, and the scent took me back to my childhood! (The scent reminds me of L’Oreal Kids No Tears Shampoo!)

Free & Lovely Lavender & Amber Body Mist – 2oz Value $1.25

This is described as a refreshing mist with essential oils, so I was expecting a light, lavender scent, but the fragrance is sweet and strong!

The formula is free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, and dyes, too! I’m interested in trying out their other scents, but like I said, the lavender is the first scent listed, but I could barely detect it, so the scent descriptions may be a bit deceptive!

OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Dry Shampoo – 1.5oz Value $2.10

This is everything I want in dry shampoo – it goes on clear, absorbs oil, and has a fab scent, too! (I love all things beachy and coconut!)

Scunci Spirals  – Value $1.50

These are pretty much identical to Invisibobble hair bands. Unlike some hair bands, these don’t slip at all!

La Roche Posay Lipikar AP+ – 15ml Value $.74

This is a rich cream/balm hybrid that is very moisturizing, fast absorbing, and has no greasy finish! Plus this tube is completely full!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $19. That’s great for a $7 Target beauty box, plus the $3 beauty coupon always adds value to me. I’ll use everything in this box, and I had a few new product discoveries that I love, so I’d say this box was a win!

To Wrap Up:

  1. This box was great for me. I recently went on a 10-day trip which included 6 days of hiking. I took the hair tie, face wash and moisturizer. I used the moisturizer at night only, but saved my dehydrated skin! The only miss item is the body mist, but I will find a way to use it.

  2. I loved this box too – I got two! The hair ties were an awesome discovery! I use the cleanser stick in the shower and it’s gotten all goopy, but I like it better that way because it’s easier to lather up now. I like the Soap and Glory scrub, too. The sunscreen is already a favorite, so a mini size that is hard to find for sale is worth it’s weight in gold! The rest was a bonus!

  3. Liz, do you know why these boxes take forever to ship?
    I received the men’s box on Saturday and this box isn’t estimated to arrive until this Saturday. They were ordered at the same time so it doesn’t make sense!
    At least the men’s box arrived before Father’s Day unlike the Mother’s Day box.

  4. I forgot I was sad about missing out on this box, but now I’m sad again. 🙁

    • Same thing happens to me all of the time!

  5. I loved the Invisibobble slims in the GB box and wondered how they compared to the cheaper competitor brand in the Target box. Thanks for your input on that, ladies! The Invisibobbles hold my long and heavy hair while elastic bands and scrunchies hurt or break.

    • The invisibobble slums were also in the May Cosmobox, I was excited because I’d just lost a pack of them.

    • Personally, I like invisibobble better. I’ve had two of the Scunci ones break. I also have really heavy hair, so I am sure it’s not a problem for everyone, but I wouldn’t get the cheaper ones again. I was glad I got to try them in the box though!

  6. I have been surprised at how much I like the Target and even the Walmart boxes so far. Good size products and things that are useful. They have been pretty nicely packaged too. If you are on a very strict budget these two might be a nice option for you.

  7. This box was great! The value was certainly there. The cleansing stick is great, has a great feel. I have sensitive skin, no issues. The hair ties were good, I have very thick naturally curly hair. Just everything I hope target has future boxes that are this good.

  8. I loved this box! The only thing I didn’t love was the spray. I agree…the scent was very lavender-ish to me. But totally a win for a $7 box.

    • Ugh. I meant “not very lavender-ish.” Sigh. Long day.

  9. I missed this box but Target just delivered their June box today. It is not as good as the one in May but for $7 it’s a steal!

  10. Looks like a great box. Sorry I missed it. I’ve tried “generic” invisibobbles and they don’t work nearly as well as the original. Also, the mini ones that came in the GB are especially great!

  11. I loved this box. We already used up the cleansing stick and liked it so much, I bought 2 more. It really does leave your face feeling clean and smooth without feeling dry.

  12. I am glad I was able to get this one. I put that cleanser stick in my shower but haven’t used it yet -sounds like I need to!

  13. I loooved this box! I do have to say that I was very excited about the less expensive hair spiral bands but these don’t hold my thick heavy hair nearly as well as invisibobbles. They barely work for me. Regardless, great box!

  14. I really loved this box. I use the St. Ives cleaning stick and lavender amber spray daily (and bought extras of the cleaning stick in the other 2 scents!) and will definitely use the rest of the box at one point.

  15. Ugh. I’m still so bitter about Target not fulfilling my orders. I ordered two almost immediately after they went on sale. I got a shipping notification later that day and the tracking number didn’t move once in two weeks. By the time I contacted target they were long sold out. I was really excited about this box. Unlike most of the others I would have used everything in it. Such a bummer 😞

    • By others, I meant other Target boxes

    • This happened to me too. I contacted them 3 times and never received a response but i did get a refund a MONTH later.
