April 2019 Target Beauty Box “April Showers” Review
This month’s box is all about freshening up your beauty routine, starring 6 products to keep you Spring fresh!
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. Like in last month’s box, this month’s coupon looks a little different than previous months; you have to download the Target app to scan your coupon, then it should show up in your digital wallet to use at checkout.
Moving on to Target’s refreshing beauty picks!
I was a little disappointed by the size of this packet sample, especially after I smelled the product inside; it smells beautiful! Usually I am hesitant to try cream products in my fine hair for fear that it will fall flat, but I smoothed a pea-sized amount to the mid-length and ends of my damp hair, and I was surprised at the shine it gave. I curled my hair after air drying and, while it is not necessarily a styling cream, it held my waves and kept frizz at bay until the next day. Not bad!
Soap & Glory Puffy Eye Attack Under-Eye Brightening Hydrogel Patches, 1 pair – Retail Value $4.49
I don’t suffer from puffy eyes, but I know somebody who does! My bae, Ryan, wakes up and goes to bed with puffy eyes. I let him be a guinea pig for a few products this month, and he was eager to fill me in on the details. These eye patches stayed in place without sliding around, and they smell (very lightly fragranced) like a cucumber spa treatment. After a half hour of wear, he removed the masks and was surprised to see a soothed, non-puffy undereye! He was impressed by how relaxing the eye masks felt, too.
Dove dry shampoo is a staple in my beauty kit. This is one of my favorite formulas to use at night since it leaves a stark white cast. I like to spray it on my roots and tie my hair in a loose bun, and by morning my hair smells and looks so fresh, clean and voluminous! I will say it isn’t the easiest to brush through, but if you keep it at the roots, it works wonders.
Crest 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste Vibrant Peppermint, .85oz – (Buy 4.1oz here for $6.99)
I love toothpaste samples! What a handy thing to have when you run out of your normal tube and dread going to the store. Crest 3D White made my teeth feel incredibly clean and my breath fresh, although I think $6.99 is a hefty price for a tube of toothpaste.
Degree For Women Black+White Dry Spray Antiperspirant, 1oz – Estimated Value $1.26 (Buy 3.8oz here for $4.79)
Spring is here with summer close behind, which poses the ultimate test: will the natural deodorants I’ve been using all fall/winter withstand the heat? Probably not, unfortunately. Cue this little gem that fits perfectly in my purse! I love having a strong backup deodorant for sweaty, emergency purposes, and this product smells fresh without being too overpowering. With one quick spritz, I feel super confident that my deo will last through pretty much anything, which is a great feeling.
Bliss That’s Incredi-peel Glycolic Resurfacing Pads, 1 pad – Estimated Value $1.33 (Buy 15 here for $19.99)
Bliss has always been a hit-or-miss brand for me due to my sensitive skin, but Ryan always seems to like their products. He was more than happy to test out this exfoliating pad, and he was even happier with the results. After a shower, he wiped his face all over with the non-abrasive pad, making sure to get all of the areas his skin tends to get congested in. He was surprised at how gentle the treatment was, but he did note it was a little tingly going on. When he woke up the next morning, his face felt “crisp” and clean, no sensitivity or irritation to be reported!
Verdict: Target really sent a vast mix of products to keep us fresh this month! This box has a total estimated value of about $10.74 — a low value compared to the $7 (free shipping) box cost, but I have to note how awesome some of these samples will be for travel this summer. I will say I do not condone one-use samples from any subscriptions, but I can overlook some of these since two of the three packets were mask/treatments.
Value Breakdown: This box had a value of $10.74; here’s what you are approximately paying per item:
- TIGI Bed Head Smoothing Cream: $.60
- Soap & Glory Hydrogel Patches: $2.93
- Dove Dry Shampoo Volume & Fullness: $.73
- Crest 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste: $1.06
- Degree For Women Black+White Dry Spray Antiperspirant: $.82
- Bliss That’s Incredi-Peel: $.87
