December 2018 Target Beauty Box Review
This month’s box features 6 glow-inducing beauty items! This info card provides a short description of each item sampled and on the flip side a Target coupon good for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more.
Moving on to Target’s glow-up beauty picks!
Que Bella Professional Plumping Gold Peel off Mask, .5 oz – Estimated Value $2.49
Oddly enough, I can’t find the exact mask I received on target.com, so I linked a similar mask. I was excited to receive a peel-off mask since I haven’t done one of those in ages; this one was extra fun due to the gold shimmer! This mask had a very subtle, pleasant smell, and I was peeling away after about 20 minutes of drying time. My skin felt refreshed after rinsing off the excess mask, and my skin didn’t seem to mind the fragrance, either.
bliss Lemon & Sage Body Butter, 1 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.09 (Buy a 6.7oz tube for $7.29)
Thanks to subscription boxes and free samples with a purchase, I’ve been introduced to this body butter many times, and it is a great product. It doesn’t take a long time to sink into the skin, and it can be a great everyday moisturizer. I love the herby lemon scent, and this is a great size for my purse for on the go moisturization!
ME! Bath Coconut & Lime Bath Bomb, 1.58oz – Estimated Value $1.67 (Buy 6 for $9.99)
Bath bombs have become such a treasure to me, and I never want to take another bath without one! ME!’s version smells delicious and made my skin feel silky smooth. The water was barely tinted green, so it didn’t dye my bathtub or leave the floor too slippery.
Ponds Cold Cream, 1.76 oz. – Estimated Value $1.44 (Buy 6.1 oz. for $4.99)
I know this is a cult product, but I never really understood why. The fragrance is so potently perfumey, and it left the skin on the back of my hand shiny and greasy to the touch. I prefer wearing fragrance free skincare on my face due to my sensitive to fragrance and acne-prone skin, so this was not a great sample for me. Does anyone out there swear by this product?
Dr. Teals Pink Himalayan Body Scrub, 1.59 oz. – Estimated Value $0.50 (Buy 16oz for $4.99)
I’ve seen this brand everywhere recently, so I was pretty excited to try this sample. I love the gritty texture, and the scent is a strong clean fragrance with a hint of citrus. I usually go for a more moisturizing scrub, but I’ll definitely be using this sample up.
Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo, 3 fl oz. – Estimated Value $0.99 (Buy 12.1 fl oz. for $3.99)
Dove is a great haircare brand, and I love the refreshing scent of each of their shampoos, conditioners and dry shampoos. This cleanser felt moisturizing, and I think it even tamed some of the static and frizz that winter usually blesses me with. This 3 fl oz. bottle is a great size to really test this product out, but I wish they included a sample of the corresponding conditioner to get the full experience.
Verdict: This box has a total value of about $8.18, which is only a little over the $7 price tag of this box. Target Beauty Box is so great if you love to sample different brands on the cheap, and I love using all of the samples from this box when I travel. The glow theme this month was pretty solid, although there were a few items that weren’t a perfect fit for me. I will definitely be utilizing the $3 coupon, however, which is always a very welcome bonus to this box.
Value Breakdown: At $7 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:
- Que Bella Professional Plumping Gold Peel off Mask: $2.13

- ME! Bath Coconut & Lime Bath Bomb: $1.43
