January 2019 Skincare Target Beauty Box Review

Moving on to Target’s relieving beauty picks!
Vichy Mineral 89, .17fl oz – Retail Value $3.02 (Buy 1.69oz for $29.99)
Target Beauty features Vichy products a lot, and this is my favorite product I’ve tried from them. This fragrance-free serum added a punch of hydration and a little bit of a glow to my complexion right after the first time I used it. The consistency is a water-like gel, making it is so easy to spread across your face without using a ton of product or rubbing too hard. The hyaluronic acid soaks into your skin almost immediately, and you’re left with baby soft, glowing skin!
Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub, .33fl oz – Estimated Value $.44 (Buy 6fl oz for $7.99)
Cetaphil has always been a reliable brand for me, so I was pretty excited to test this scrub out. I squirted a small dollop on my fingers, and I didn’t see any scrubbing particles in the clear gel, and I could only start to feel the mild exfoliation when I started working the product into my skin. It was a lovely experience, gentle yet effective, but I’d much rather it be fragrance-free than have that clean, soapy scent.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, .14oz – Estimated Value $.10 (Buy 16oz for $10.99)
Even though I was disappointed by the packet approach, I really love this cream. It is thick, yet it sinks in without leaving your skin feeling anything but supple and soft. This fragrance-free cream is perfect for dry knees and elbows, especially in the winter.
Dove DermaSeries Body Lotion Replenish, 1.7oz – Estimated Value $4.75 (Buy 2.5oz for $6.99)
I am so pleased with all of these fragrance-free essentials! I love scent-free lotion, and this is a great everyday pick. Thinner lotions like this are perfect for adding a few drops of oil into for that extra moisturizing boost, and this sample size is so generous.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Cleanser, .5fl oz, – Estimated Value $.56 (Buy 13.5oz for $14.99)
Hydrating cleansers always feel great going on, but I never feel like my face is clean enough after rinsing. I used a generous amount, applied and worked into the skin using circular motions, and after about 40 seconds I rinsed it off using warm water. I didn’t really feel a film after rinsing, but I also still felt a presence on my skin as if there was still some cleanser left behind. My skin felt hydrated and nourished after I patted my face dry. I think I’d like this as a second step to a double cleanse more since at least I’d definitely be getting all the makeup off and exfoliating a little before this hydrating step.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R, .17oz – Estimated Value $9.69 (Buy 1oz for $56.99)
Lightweight and packed full of concentrated retinol, this gel-serum is supposed to visibly reduce wrinkles and pores and improve skin texture & tone. Unfortunately, my skin does not tolerate retinol, so I gave this sample to my mom to try. She’s only used it for one night, but she said she woke up to a perfectly plump and smooth canvas the next morning.
CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream, .17oz – Estimated Value $1.27 (Buy 1.7oz for $12.69)
CeraVe has been a shining star in my skin care regimen since I was about 15 (many moons ago). Their hydrating cleanser and moisturizer have been staples on and off for me, and I actually just picked this gem up a few months ago to spot treat some dry patches on my face. It is a very thick consistency, and you definitely know it is on your face because it does not dry down (that’s why I don’t apply it all over). This moisturizer is formulated to work best at night in cahoots with your natural circadian rhythm to restore your skin barrier overnight when your skin is most responsive. I can’t speak to that, but I will say that when I wake up after treating a dry area on my face, my skin isn’t flakey anymore and my makeup goes on like a dream.
Verdict: This box has a total value of about $19.83, which is almost triple the $7 price tag of this box; Target Beauty Box is so great if you love to sample different brands on the cheap, and the best thing about this box is how handy each sample is to travel with. This box was full of unscented skincare wonders that I already love, and I was happy to experience a few other great finds as well. I always utilize the $3 coupon, which is always a very welcome bonus to this box.
