June 2019 Target Men’s Beauty Box “Dopp Kit Essentials” Review
The theme for this box is “Dopp Kit Essentials” and I think that’s a great one for summer when a lot of people, us included, will be taking vacations and traveling. As usual, they have included a Target coupon for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more and now you have the option to simply scan it to load it to your Target app’s digital wallet or you can use the promo code if redeeming it online.
Bulldog Men’s Skincare: Original Moisturizer 0.06 fl oz. – Estimated Value $0.15 (Buy 3.3oz for $8.49)
Bulldog Men’s Skincare: Original Face Wash 0.13 fl oz. – Estimated Value $0.26 (Buy 1oz for $1.99)
Bulldog Men’s Skincare: Shave Gel 0.13 fl oz. – Estimated Value $0.15 (Buy 5.9oz for $6.99 – it looks like this one isn’t actually available at Target which I found odd!)
Let’s start with our smallest samples! While the sizes are small, I appreciate that they all work together and that they included the shave gel, face wash, and moisturizer. My husband says the face wash was refreshing and left his face feeling clean and that the shave gel worked well for him. Since his skin is more oily, he doesn’t usually use moisturizers so I tested that one out for him and I liked how light it was and thought my skin felt super soft and hydrated. While it didn’t smell overly strong when I first put it on, I ended up having to wash it off my face because it had a hint of a cologne smell that I wasn’t a fan of.
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Dry Spray Antiperspirant in Clean Comfort, 1oz – Estimated Value $1.55 (Buy a 3.8oz can for $5.89)
My husband prefers a stick deodorant, but he said this one smelled good and that it worked well. It’s a tiny bottle so it will be perfect to throw into his Dopp kit the next time he has to take an overnight trip! This is supposed to fight sweat and odor and last for up to 48 hours. I thought it smelled fresh, manly and a little bit woodsy with a hint of amber.
Crest Gum Detoxify Toothpaste in Deep Clean, 0.85oz – Estimated Value $1.45 (Buy 4.1oz for $6.99)
This stuff is super foamy and a little bit goes a long way! It had a sweet mint flavor left a bit too much of a sweet taste in my mouth afterward, although it definitely left our mouths feeling clean. While we thought the toothpaste was fine, there was nothing about it that would make us switch from our preferred toothpaste. Since this is a nice sample size it will go with our traveling toiletries stash for our next trip!
Old Spice Fresher Collection Invisible Solid Deodorant in Deep Sea with Ocean Elements, FULL SIZE – Retail Value $5.99
Old Spice is my husband’s preferred deodorant so this full-size stick combined with the $3 off coupon makes this box totally worth it for him. Usually, he is happy with whichever scent is on sale, but this one is a nice change and somehow it does remind me of the ocean with its light, fresh scent! Since this is his preferred deodorant brand, I think it’s safe to say it works and I always love that I can smell it on him after he uses it and throughout the day.
Head & Shoulders Old Spice Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner in Pure Sport, 3oz – Estimated Value $1.40 (Buy 12.8oz for $5.99)
My husband also uses Old Spice Pure Sport body wash, but he really isn’t picky when it comes to shampoo since he keeps his hair short. This is actually a decent travel size bottle that will last him a while. He thought it smelled good, like the body wash, and it didn’t leave his hair greasy. He said if he had more hair, he would consider it as an everyday option.
Gilette SkinGuard Men’s Razor – 1 Handle + 1 Razor – Estimated Value $6.24 (Buy a Handle + 2 Refills for $9.99. My estimate is this price minus the cost of one refill based on the 4-pack cost of $14.99)
My husband uses a similar Gilette razor for what he calls his “neard” or his neck beard, although this one seems to have just a bit more going on with the SkinGuard. He has only used it once so far and didn’t notice a huge difference between this and his other razor, but maybe over time, he will experience reduced irritation since this one is supposed to eliminate the tugging and prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. It is a nice hefty metal handle and it is always nice to get a full-size razor in a box!
Verdict: This is my first time trying a Target beauty box for men and I thought it was a really nice box with a full-size deodorant, a razor, and some decent sized samples. It was the perfect mix of items to throw into a Dopp kit and the total estimated value is about $17.19 which is good for a $7.00 (+ free shipping) box that also included a $3.00 coupon that we will definitely use. My husband thought it was a pretty great deal considering everything he received.
