January 2020 Target Beauty Box Review
This month’s box is all about using clean beauty and home products.
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 Beauty Box January’s clean living picks!
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion, 1.7 fl oz – Retail Value $0.99
During my pregnancy, I reached for a few of Palmer’s products, and I feel like this clean beauty brand puts out some really great, safe options. This lotion smells like coconut oil, and it has a thinner consistency, though a little goes a long way. I like this little bottle for traveling, and I’ll likely hang on to it and keep refilling it. This would make an awesome everyday body moisturizer, especially since it is paraben, phthalate, gluten and sulfate-free.
Lumene Nordic-C Cleansing Balm, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $1.78 (Buy 4.2 oz for $14.99)
I am not a stranger to cleansing balms, and this one performs better than expected. It did a fine job removing my makeup, although I had to go in with micellar water makeup remover to pick up some streaks of mascara and some fine glitter. I found that after I used this cleanser, it did seem to leave my face glowing, and I really liked how supple it left my face feeling and looking. I’ve been having some issues with dry, dull skin, and this balm seems very promising!
Lumene Nordic-C Arctic Berry Oil Cocktail, 0.07 fl oz. – Estimated Value $1.75 (Buy 1 fl oz for $24.99)
If skincare packets make you frown, you are not alone! Especially when they seem promising, like this particular packet. I love oils for my dry skin, and this felt moisturizing and the light fragrance didn’t seem to irritate my sensitive skin.
Native Deodorant Mini in Charcoal, 0.35 oz.- Retail Value $2.99
I missed getting mini deodorants in these boxes, so I was excited to see this Native sample! The last time I visited Target, I was intrigued by this clean, modern packaging. It is a softer deodorant, so it doesn’t go on in a thin layer, and you can see the pale grey on your pits if you don’t rub it in. I love the almost fruity, masculine scent, which stayed with me throughout my workday and helped keep me feeling fresh.
Yuni Travel Shower Sheet Body Wipe, 1 Wipe – Retail Value $1.50
I squirreled a few of these away for my hospital stay when I had my baby, and they really came in handy. I received them as free samples from a few Sephora orders, and I loved having them as a refresher for when I wasn’t quite ready to hop in the shower. The large sheets are pretty durable and left my skin feeling clean, although it dried sticky, so I felt like I needed to apply lotion afterward (which I always do, anyway).
Burt’s Bees Fluoride Free Purely White Zen Peppermint Toothpaste, 0.85 oz – Estimated Value $0.90 (Buy 4.7 oz for $4.99)
Burt’s Bees products always draw me in, and I am game for trying more natural toothpaste options. This fluoride-free version is a mellow mint that left my mouth feeling fresh and clean. I enjoyed using this, and it felt good taking a break from fluoride, though I’ll definitely go back to a fluoride toothpaste for the benefits.
Love Home & Planet Laundry Detergent in Lavender & Argan Oil, 8 fl oz – Retail Value $2.99
This laundry detergent smells so fresh and clean. Lavender has a tendency to be too strong for me, but when my towels were done drying, I couldn’t stop smelling them. It seemed to clean my clothes as well as my Mrs. Meyer’s detergent, and the full size sells for a few dollars less. This small bottle will clean 10 loads of laundry, and after I run out, I will be tempted to repurchase.
Mrs. Meyer’s Oat Blossom Hand Soap, 0.18 fl oz – Estimated Value $.06 (Buy 12.5 fl oz for $3.99)
Mrs. Meyer’s makes the best home products! All of their fragrances are so beautiful, and I can’t wait to buy this one the next time I visit Target. It has a creamy, soft scent that stayed with me well after drying my hands off.
Up & Up Premium Rounds, 2 ct- Estimated Value $0.06 (Buy 100 for $2.99)
Of course, I wasn’t thrilled about this sample, but honestly, you can never have enough cotton rounds. This isn’t the first time Target sent out this pack of two cotton rounds. I use this kind every night with micellar water to pick up tricky eye makeup, and they are durable and soft enough for my sensitive eye area.
Verdict: I was excited for this month’s Target Beauty Box, even though it has a low value. I will definitely use everything, and I found some products that totally won me over. This box is a great way to stock up on travel essentials, and I love seeing the different products and brands Target has to offer. The value of this box is $13.02, not quite double the $7 box cost (which includes free shipping).
