July 2019 Target Beauty Box Review
This month’s box is all about those must-have beauty essentials stashed in our gym bags.
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. This month I received a coupon that needs to be scanned into the app to use in-store.
Moving on to Target’s gym bag must-haves!
Simple Sassy Sachet Moisturizing Face Wash, 1.69 fl oz – Estimated Value $2.02 (Buy 5 fl oz for $5.99)
Simple is a great skincare brand for sensitive skin, and I love this fresh, eco-friendly packaging! Dye, soap and fragrance-free, this foaming formula feels great going on and my skin feels moisturized after rinsing.
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water, 1.69 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.18 (Buy 6.7 fl oz for $4.69)
Another win from Simple! This micellar water is comparable to Garnier’s, which is my favorite drugstore option. I soaked a cotton pad with this, held it against my eyelid for about 10 seconds then wiped away all of my eye makeup. This handy pouch would definitely last for a week’s vacation, so handy!
Nexxus Frizz Defy Anti-Frizz Sheets, 1 sheet – Estimated Value $1.50 (Buy 8 sheets for $11.99)
Wow! I can’t get over the price of these frizz sheets! This small packet contained one sheet, which smelled powder fresh and had a bit of a waxy texture. The directions say to glide the sheet over your hair to eliminate static and frizz. I noticed a small difference, but I don’t know what could possibly work with the humidity we’ve been dealing with. For $1.50 a sheet, I’d have to say this product is probably not worth the splurge for me, but I was happy to finally test one of these out.
Crest Kid’s Anticavity Cavity Protection Fluoride Toothpaste in Strawberry Rush, 0.85 oz – Estimated Value $.40 (Buy 4.2 fl oz for $1.99)
I love sampling new toothpaste, and travel-friendly tubes are always welcome in my house. Forget the sickeningly sweet bubblegum toothpaste you knew from your childhood – strawberry is a complete game changer! The flavor is subtle, but it is enough to make the mouth feel clean and freshen your breath. This fluoride toothpaste helps to prevent cavities and is recommended for kids ages 2+.
Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Shampoo, 3.0 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.40 (Buy 12.8 fl oz for $5.99)
Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Conditioner, 3.0 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.70 (Buy 10.6 fl oz for $5.99)
Ryan was very excited when he saw this duo in this month’s box; he loves Head & Shoulders, specifically the green apple scented version, and he was thrilled about the big sample size of these miniatures. This formula smells very fresh and made my hair shiny and smooth, as promised. I found that I didn’t even need to condition after using the shampoo, but the conditioner is what really helps to eliminate frizz.
Acure Radically Rejuvenating Day Cream Facial Moisturizers with SPF 30, 1.7 fl oz – Retail Value $13.49
Acure is a brand I see frequently in beauty boxes, and I’ve grown to really like some of their products. This tube is worth almost double the cost of this entire box, too! This not only functions as a moisturizer, but it also has anti-aging and brightening ingredients as well as SPF 30, all in one product. The texture of this moisturizer is somewhat liquidy, so I ended up patting a pea-sized amount (on top of my regular moisturizer) all over my face and neck. It took about 5 minutes for this product to set into its velvety finish, which I really like! Zinc Oxide is a great physical sunscreen ingredient to use during pregnancy, and it is also reef safe.
Verdict: Target’s gym bag picks this month were awesome! All of the items felt hand-picked for me this month – love it when that happens! The value of this box is $21.69, over triple the $7.00 box cost including free shipping. This box is a great way to stock up on travel essentials, and I love seeing the different products Target has to offer. I will definitely be using up each sample from this month, and I look forward to seeing what Target has to offer next month.
