August 2019 Target Beauty Box Review
This month’s box is all about winding down from summer and falling into our fall beauty routines.
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 an in-store coupon that also includes a promo code you can redeem online.
Moving on to Target’s fall beauty picks!
MyBite Vitamins Beauty Inside & Out, 3 bites – Estimated Value $0.65 (Buy 60 for $12.99)
MyBite Vitamins Multivitamin, 2 bites – Estimated Value $0.43 (Buy 60 for $12.99)
This package contained 3 of the Inside & Out vitamins as well as 2 of MyBite’s multivitamins, even though the package does not include that information. Both vitamins tasted pretty similar to each other, except that one is dark chocolate and the other is milk chocolate. MyBite Vitamins have 25 calories per serving (one morsel per serving), and the full-size product comes with 60 bites. These are perfect for someone who hates to swallow pills and is looking for an easy, enjoyable way to take their vitamins.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioning Treatment, 1.7 fl oz – Estimated Value $0.64 (Buy 8 fl oz for $2.99)
Aussie has been around for what seems like forever, and this product is truly a classic. It smells great, and a 3-minute hair mask is a fast, easy option when you need some extra moisture, but you’re in a rush. This treatment made my ends feel soft and not weighed down as some heavier conditioners can.
hello Activated Charcoal + Hemp Fluoride-Free Whitening Toothpaste, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.75 (Buy 4 oz for $6.99)
What can’t hemp do?? I was a little surprised to see this product in this month’s box and was happy to try it out! Activated charcoal is supposed to lift surface stains to whiten as hemp oil soothes and moisturizes. I like the less astringent taste that charcoal toothpastes have, and this one’s “homegrown mint” flavor leaves my mouth feeling clean and breath fresh.
Oral-B Interdental Picks, 50 count – Estimated Value $2.40 (Buy a 1oo count for $4.79)
Here is another sample I was pretty excited to try out. I am always looking for new ways to floss because, for some reason, it is such a task for me to use regular floss. These picks have flexible, rubberized tips that are supposed to glide right through the spaces between your teeth to help you remove food and plaque. I like the idea of these, but my teeth are so close together that I couldn’t fit one of these between any of my teeth. I am also not a fan of the excess plastic used to make these, so I guess I will just stick to my regular, old minty floss!
Dove Men + Care Fresh and Clean 2 in 1, 3 fl oz – Retail Value $1.49
A men’s shampoo was an interesting choice for this month. I have to say, the fragrance of this shampoo is quite invigorating to start the day with; it is not an overly masculine scent, but instead, it is fresh and maybe a little woodsy. This fortifying blend contains caffeine which is supposed to stimulate growth for men with thinning or fine hair. This two-in-one also enabled me to brush my fingers through my hair without too much difficulty. Not bad for a men’s shampoo!
Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Birch Bark Extract Sulfate-Free Shampoo, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $.16 (Buy 12.2 oz for $5.99)
Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Birch Bark Extract Conditioner, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $.13 (Buy 13.5 oz for $5.99)
I’ll always love Herbal Essences, but sample packets are sometimes frustrating to receive in subscriptions (especially this month’s very low-value box!). This duo did the trick without the use of sulfates, parabens, gluten or colorants, and I really enjoyed the very fragrant floral scent which seemed to linger all day.
Verdict: Target’s fall picks seemed a little random to me. Don’t get me wrong, I will certainly be utilizing most samples, but to me, there really wasn’t a theme here — just a few products thrown together. The value of this box is $7.65, a little over the $7 box cost (which includes free shipping). Compared to last month’s box, I am pretty disappointed in the value and the contents, but like I always say, these samples are always handy and will be used either way.
