Target Glam To Go Holiday Beauty Box Review
Difeel Pure Essential Tea Tree Oil, 1 oz – Retail Value $5.99
Tea tree oil is one of those essential oils with a ton of uses – mixing a drop with your shampoo can help to keep your scalp healthy, and it also makes a great acne spot treatment. The way I have been using tea tree oil lately (thanks to getting it in this box) is by dropping a few drops on the floor of my shower when I turn the hot water on. After waiting a few minutes, I step into the shower and I feel like I am in a spa. I love how big this 1 oz jar is- a little bit truly goes a long way, so I happily have my tea tree needs set for a while yet.
Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner, 2 oz – Retail Value $3.99
I am always down to try new curl products, and I really loved the performance of this deep conditioner. I found it to be hydrating, smoothing, and it helped to detangle my curls without weighing them down. The Target in Baton Rouge is a bit of a drive from where I live, but I would definitely make the drive to stock up on this deep conditioner before I travel (because those hotel conditioners do not do my hair any favors).
Cantu Coconut Curling Cream, 2 oz – Retail Value $1.97
This curling cream is paraben, sulfate, silicone, and mineral oil free, and it provided a nice bounciness to my curls while smoothing the strands. This didn’t weigh my hair down, and it paired really well with my current go-to curl gel to define and hold my curls while not getting too frizzy.
Curls Blueberry Bliss Twist N Shout Cream, 2 oz – Retail Value $2.99
This curl cream would be best suited for those whose curls are tighter spirals than mine, but I still enjoyed the light hydration this provided my curls while sealing in the cuticle from frizz.
Eyelure x Jasmine Brown Curly Queen Lashes – Retail Value $7.99
I have slowly been wearing false eyelashes more and more now that I get so many pairs through subscription boxes. This pair was light and comfortable to wear, and I like that they came with eyelash glue (I literally just got a tube of glue in my Allure box but I have no idea where it is). What I found works best for me is that I trim the inner corners of the lashes, because otherwise, they are a bit uncomfortable to wear. I apply the lash glue to the back of my hand and wait a few seconds before pressing the lash band into the glue. I then wait a few more seconds before applying to my lash line (the outer two-thirds of my eyes since I trim off the inner corners).
Here I am wearing them, and the great hair is thanks to the Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner, the Cantu Coconut Cream, and a light gel to hold my curls shape.
I wasn’t a fan of how this lash glue stayed a bit white- maybe my lashes weren’t done drying, but I prefer it when the glue dries clear quickly.
The Verdict: I love that one of the Target Holiday Boxes were specifically for women (or men!) with very curly hair. The favorites for me were the tea tree oil and the deep conditioner, but overall I thought this set was a good value with a fun mix of products. This would be a sweet stocking stuffer for the curly girl in your life! Value-wise, this box cost $14.99 and had a total retail value of $22.93.
