April 2019 Target In Your Skin Beauty Box Review
Here is the info sheet for the box.
Pixi Rose Tonic, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $2.21 (buy the 3.4 oz version for $15)
Pixi is one of my favorite affordable skincare lines, and I have been wanting to try this rose tonic since rose really agrees with my skin. This did not disappoint, and I was happy with its performance as a hydrating and soothing toner. Along with rose water, this also has aloe, rose extract, chamomile, and elderflower extract.
Native Lavender & Rose Deodorant, 0.35 oz – Estimated Value $1.58 (buy the full-size version for $11.99)
I am firmly not in the natural deodorant camp, but I gave this a try because I liked the light scent of lavender and rose. This did absolutely nothing to disguise my sweat when I worked out, so I would probably only throw it on when I am relaxing at home with no plans of physical exertion. This is aluminum and paraben-free, but it does have baking soda in it which can irritate sensitive skin.
This body wash is the perfect travel size, which is perfect since I will be taking a short overnight trip next week. The scent is a delicate blend of peony, rose water, and pink sea salt, and I like that this doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or like there is a residue. Plus, the bottle is made with 65% recycled plastic!
Garnier SkinActive Rose Mist Spray, 0.06 oz – Estimated Value $0.09 (buy the full-size version for $6.49)
This tiny perfume-vial sample contains a new face mist from Garnier featuring ingredients like rose water and glycerin. I like that Garnier is making an effort to show the sources of their ingredients, but I wish the ingredients list did not have alcohol denat so high up. That being said, I put this to the test after a workout, and I was happy with the performance as a refreshing, soothing mist. Considering with the included coupon the full-size version of this mist would be under $5, I just may pick it up.
Garnier SkinActive Rose Water 3-in-1 Moisturizer, 0.17 oz – Estimated Value $0.20 (buy the full-size version for $7.79
This moisturizer is made with shea butter, beeswax, and rosewater to soothe and nourish your skin. Depending on the amount you apply to your skin, you can use this as a day moisturizer, a night cream, or even a mask. I chose to wear this as a hydrating mask, and I was happy with the boost in moisture this gave my skin. This would probably be too heavy of a day cream for oily skin, but it should work as a night cream for almost anyone.
The Verdict: My skin loves rose as an ingredient, so I was excited to try this kit out. While as a whole I was happy to try things out like the Pixi rose tonic, the value of this box is less than what I paid for it with a total value of $6.07. If you’ll use the included coupon than the value goes up a tad, but I do think Target could have included either another sample or bigger Garnier samples to make the box worth at least the cost.
The Wrap Up
