Target Beauty Box – Women’s Maxing & Relaxing Review
This Black History Month exclusive box features 4 calming beauty products perfect for a little rest and relaxation. The back of the info card provides a short description of each item and little tips for making the best use of the products.
Let’s check out the pampering products included in this box!
SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Mud Mask Packette, FULL SIZE! – Retail Value $2.99
This mud mask is made of coconut oil, shea butter, hibiscus flower, and songyi mushroom extracts and other natural and organic ingredients. Perfect for dull skin, this purifying mask cleanses and hydrates skin leaving it soft, bright and deeply nourished.
I took Target’s tip and cleansed my face with the Urban Skin Rx Cleansing Bar from the Recline & Unwind box so that the mask could better penetrate my skin. It feels like only a tiny amount of product in the packette but it was more than enough to cover my face. The mud mask has a pleasant smell and didn’t take long to start drying. The recommendation is to leave the mask on for 10 minutes but I washed it off a little sooner because I wasn’t sure if the tingling feeling was a good or bad thing. I had plans to go out that evening and didn’t want to risk any negative reaction. My skin felt fine and slightly softer after but not visibly different in any way.
Eden Body Works Coconut Shea Hand Cream, FULL SIZE! – Retail Value $4.99
This coconut-scented hand cream is made of coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E and does not contain any irritating dyes, mineral oils or parabens. Apply this soothing hand cream to rough and dry hands to leave them soft, smooth and supple.
This hand cream is awesome! The coconut scent is fresh, clean and subtle which I really like. The cream is much thicker than I expected. I took a bit of effort to get it all rubbed in but it left my skin looking visibly more hydrated with just a hint of shine. This is perfect for the dry winter months to combat ashy hands and elbows.
Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Bar Soap, FULL SIZE! – Retail Value $2.97
This mild bar soap is made with almond oil and oatmeal to soothe, cleanse, gently exfoliate and soften skin. Gently massage your body with the bar to leave skin silky-smooth.
This bar soap smells amazing! The other thing I noticed right off is how big it is. It’s bigger than a standard size bar of soap and almost double the size of the African black soap including in the Recline & Unwind box. The soap lathers easily and a little goes a long way. The lather is thick, feels luxurious and left my skin feeling so soft. I’m a fan!
The Lip Bar Metallic Lipstick in Cosmo, FULL SIZE! – Retail Value $12.00
This multi-use lipstick is made with nourishing oils and shea butter. It can also be used as a highlighter or eyeshadow and has a rich hue.
I’ve heard such great things about this brand and was super excited to try this lipstick. I love the unique packaging and thought this red might go great with my skin tone. Unfortunately, it’s not the red for me. But, there is still lots to love! It went on smooth and felt really moisturizing, the color is deeply pigmented and it has just the right about of shine. I’ll try this brand again in another shade that better compliments my skin.
The Verdict: The products in this box are great! With this being a Black History Month exclusive box, I love that the box includes clean products from black beauty brands. The Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Bar soap and Eden Body Works hand cream are my favorites. They are contenders to be a permanent part of my beauty regimen! The lipstick isn’t the right color for me but the quality is impressive. I can’t make a fair judgment on the mud mask because I didn’t leave it on for the full time but it did smell great.
This box cost $14.99 and has a total retail value of $22.95. That is about a 35% savings and fair value on its own but not a good value compared to other Target Beauty Boxes. Most Target Beauty Boxes cost $7 but I have seen other exclusive Target beauty boxes sold for $14.99. For the exclusive boxes, I expect to receive mostly full-size and high-quality items and I expect the box to be a great value. All the products included in this box are full-size and high-quality. Adding an additional 1 or 2 products would have increased the overall value of this box.
