January 2019 Target Beauty Box Review

Moving on to Target’s flawless beauty picks!
Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Deodorant, FULL SIZE! – Retail Value $6.99
As far as drugstore natural deodorants go, this one smells the best by far. I really liked the way it glided right on and moisturized, thanks to the Argan oil, but unfortunately, it just didn’t hold up for me. It checks all of the boxes for me ingredient-wise (no alcohol, aluminum, parabens, etc.), but I felt I needed to reapply after about an hour into perusing the aisles of TJ Maxx.
Method Body Wash Pure Peace, 3.4fl oz – Estimated Value $1.32 (Buy 18fl oz for $6.99)
What a great sample size! This naturally derived body wash is infused with peony, rose water and pink sea salt and smells beautiful. My expectations for moisturizing body wash is skewed because I use SheaMoisture, and they make the very best, but Method’s is decent! My skin didn’t feel tight after drying off, and the pretty floral fragrance hinted around my bathroom for a little while after my shower. Their company is also cruelty, phthalate, and paraben free!
Up&Up Premium Cotton Rounds, 2ct – Estimated Value $.06 (Buy 100ct for $2.99)
I use a cotton round every night to take off my makeup, and this one is pretty standard. I saturated one with a micellar water and wipe away my eye makeup on one side then my face makeup on the other side before washing my face. I didn’t have any issue with tearing, and I feel it picked up my makeup well.
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise All Day Liner, FULL SIZE – Retail Value $6.99
Liquid liner, in my experience, is hard to get right. It has to be precise, stay in place all day and be black as night; this liner was a non-contender. The pigment is saturated, but it smudged shortly after application. I was also able to draw a precise line, but it moved around so much that it didn’t really matter.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil, .9fl oz – Estimated Value $1.66 (Buy 5.1oz for $9.39)
Formulated with Vitamin E and argan oil, this oil feels lightweight on the skin, and it smells soft and inviting like cocoa butter. Palmer’s makes great products, and this oil is an instant new favorite. This phthalate, paraben and cruelty-free product is supposed to help heal and soothe dry, damaged, uneven or scarred skin. My favorite way to use this is mixed with a fragrance-free lotion all over for the ultimate hydration experience.
Schmidt’s Naturals Travel Sized Toothpaste Activated Charcoal, .75oz, – Estimated Value $.80 (Buy 4.7oz for $4.99)
Usually, I try to avoid charcoal toothpaste because of the mess it leaves behind, but this all natural version is a dye-free grey that doesn’t stain the sink. My teeth felt squeaky clean after brushing, and the subtle mint kept my mouth feeling fresh all morning. This paste is also certified vegan and cruelty-free!
Garnier Micellar Water Waterproof, 1.05fl oz – Estimated Value $1.23 (Buy 3.4 fl oz for $3.99)
I’ve never seen a small bottle of Garnier micellar water like this, but it is the perfect travel size for a weekend away. The sensitive version of this makeup remover is my absolute favorite, but this waterproof rendition didn’t cause any irritation for me. I didn’t have any waterproof makeup to test this on, but the makeup I did have on didn’t stand a chance against it!
Verdict: This box has a total estimated value of $19.05, which is almost triple the $7 price tag of this box; Target Beauty Box is an awesome deal if you love to sample different brands on the cheap, and I love using all of the samples from this box when I travel. This box was full of useful items that I rely on day to day, so I was thrilled to receive backups of some of my go-tos. I will definitely be utilizing the $3 coupon, which is always a very welcome bonus to this box.
