Now, on to the items!

bliss Fab Foaming Face Wash – 1 oz Value $1.56

This is an ingredient-conscious facial cleanser that has gentle exfoliant particles – I liked the light scent, and it didn’t dry out my skin.

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Tropical Banana Sea Salt Spray – 2 oz Value $1.21

This sea salt spray smells beachy (AKA coconuts!) and can be applied on dry or damp hair. I tried it on dry curls to give them more of a messy wave look. The formula made my hair a bit crunchy at first, but it was easy to brush out, and I liked the finished look.

Schick Intuition F.A.B. Razor – Retail Value $5.99

I love the Schick Intuition razor (with built-in shaving cream), so I was intrigued by this new razor invention.

It takes a bit of getting used to, but you can safely share up or down. Not as cool as my Schick Intuition Razor, but still pretty good!

Acure Brilliantly Brightening Day Cream – 1 oz Value $9.99

This is over half the size of the full-size version! And it’s amazing! Super ingredient-conscious, no greasy finish, lightweight, and a light citrus scent!

Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Body Lotion – 2 oz Value $2.25

This is a lightweight lotion (absorbs almost instantly with no greasy finish), and it has a fab coconut scent. Very appropriate for summer!

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes – 7 ct Value $1.26

These are a staple for makeup removal I’m always happy to receive in a subscription box! These are ingredient-conscious, gentle on skin, and still, work on waterproof makeup!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $22.26. That’s great for a $7 Target beauty box, plus the $3 beauty coupon always adds value to me. I also appreciate that they included the brand-new Schick razor in this box!

  1. Does anyone know what happened to the September Target beauty box? Delayed till next week due to holiday, maybe? It’s usually out the day after the coupon expires, which would have been this week.

  2. I really liked this box! In fact, I just ordered a second one. It is totally worth it just for the moisturizer. You get more moisturizer in 2 samples than you do in the full size version for $3 less than the full size price. So everything else is just bonus. I gave the razor away, but everything else was great. I particularly loved the smell of the body lotion.

  3. I LOVE that razor!! You can shave up and down and never have to lift the razor off your skin!! I was able to finish much faster and it did a great job.

    • But don’t you still have to lift and rinse the hair out of the blades? Or just not as frequently? I haven’t tried mine yet so I guess I’ll figure it out when I try it.

      • Yes, I did but it still went so much faster.

  4. I love the Target boxes. They’re so practical. This one didn’t have anything I needed, so I didn’t get it, but it still looks like a good box.

  5. Did anyone else’s not come in an actual box? My items were sent loose in a bubble mailer with no content card/coupon and a completely empty Sea Salt Spray. ☹️

    • Mine came in the box wrapped in plastic but it was sort of beaten,I have UPS my choice so all my surepost is delivered UPS ground. I can’t imagine what it would’ve looked like if it had came surepost.

    • Maybe the seasalt spray opened and ruined the box from the wetness, and UPS put the items in an envelope for you?

      • Your theory totally makes sense, LR! I just wish UPS had let me know if that was the case so Target didn’t think I was trying to scam them when I complained twice. (I didn’t notice the empty bottle the first time.)

      • That’s what I think happened, too. A lot of people had the sea salt spray bottle open en route and they received ruined packages. I would contact Target for a refund.

        • Mine came totally saturated with the spray because the bottle was open, Target refunded with a Target gift card, so I was happy with that… I ordered another one and am still waiting for it’s arrival.

  6. This box is definitely still available now. It was a good box I sent one to my mom and she loved it.

  7. My sea salt spray cans empty as it had leaked all over my box. Super bummed, but still worth the price! Love the makeup wipes

    • That happened to mine, too. The whole box was soaking wet when it arrived and the sea salt spray bottle was completely empty. The lotion was unscrewed, too, but not much had spilled out. Called CS and they offered to refund the cost of the box.

      • My box arrived soaked through, squished on one side, and put inside a plastic bag (by the post office, I’m assuming). Sea spray was completely empty and the lid was barely on. I had to send pictures to CS to get a refund, but they did give me my money back. That was the first time I’ve had something leak; sounds like there was a huge problem with that spray.

    • Lately, whenever there is a spray bottle in a Target box it comes to me partially emptied. Ugh! I hope they start securing the bottles better.

  8. There’s often quite a few mistakes in the reviews, or I’ll see something copy and pasted from old reviews to new reviews , so the July box copy and paste description error doesn’t surprise me.

    • Yes. Seems like all the time. If you say something that can be perceived as harsh everyone starts defending Liz. But we’re here making her money so why can’t we expect accuracy?

  9. There isn’t SheaMoisture African Soap & Charcoal Scrub. It’s not listed on the card, or in the box.

    • The list of products was what was in the July box.

      • Right! Thanks!

    • I’m sorry! I did this review in two parts (first adding the pictures, products, links, values) then the second part after I had tried the all the products, and I totally missed updating the product list. The post has been updated. Sorry again about that!

  10. I just purchased 2 of these boxes. It allowed me order place my order and they said they are available for pickup

    • Yes, it’s still available!

    • Oops! Sorry yes this box is still available. Posting mistake on my part. The review has been updated! Sorry again!

      • I just tried to order and they said it was unavailable.. totally bummed ☹️
