Moving on to March’s Target Beauty Box Spring Break picks!
Nexxus Therrappe Replenishing Shampoo, 3 oz – Retail Value $2.99
Nexxus Humectress Replenishing Conditioner, 3 oz – Retail Value $3.99
I absolutely love this shampoo and conditioner duo. The shampoo smells like coconut, and it feels hydrating and nourishing in my hair. The conditioner has a fresh, more predictable hair product smell, but it moisturizes without weighing your hair down and does a fantastic job with detangling and smoothing flyaways. I grew up using this set, and my fine hair looks and feels amazing after reuniting.
Cetaphil Daily Cleanser, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.49 (Buy 2 oz for $2.99)
This cleanser is also a blast from the past, although I am a little disappointed that they sent out the scented version. This cleanser is so gentle on the skin, and even though this is meant for normal to oily skin, I find my dry skin doesn’t feel stripped after rinsing and patting my face dry.
Schmidt’s Rose + Black Pepper Deodorant, 2.65 oz – Full Size! Retail Value $7.99
This is the item I was most excited for! You are paying only $7 for this box, which is less than what this D.O. retails for! Rose + Black Pepper is definitely not a scent I would choose, but I am happy to try something a little out of my comfort zone. After applying this deodorant, I really couldn’t smell the black pepper notes. The rose scent is potent, but I didn’t smell it on me until raising my arm. My pits felt fresh, stayed dry and smelt rosy all day long. Schmidt’s is totally free of aluminum salts, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates and artificial fragrance. and I would recommend any of their deodorants for anyone just hopping on the natural deodorant bandwagon.
Thayers Rose Petal Facial Mist, 3 fl oz – Retail Value $4.49
When I first received this box, I opened this bottle to see how strong the rose petal essence was, and whoa–it took me back. I didn’t think I was going to like this at all, but I gave it a second chance. I sprayed it on the back of my hands, and the strong rose scent dissipated; I was left with soft skin and a light, floral fragrance. Aloe lightly hydrates and soothes the skin, while the witch hazel combats impurities in the air.
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo, 1.6 oz – Retail Value $2.69
Unscented dry shampoo kind of defeats the purpose, huh? Well, at least for me, when I am reaching for a dry shampoo, I love a pleasant scent to freshen up my style, but I guess this is a great product for anyone who doesn’t want their dry shampoo to clash with their perfume. This does a decent job at perking up my roots on day one (a day after washing my hair), but this couldn’t revive day two or three hair. It leaves a very slight white cast, but it isn’t hard to brush out.
OGX Refresh & Restore Coconut Miracle Oil Dry Shampoo, 1.75 oz – Estimated Value $2.45 (Buy 5 oz for $6.99)
After trying about 100 different dry shampoo formulas, I’ve come to realize that there is no such thing as the perfect dry shampoo (even though Living Proof’s comes pretty close!). OGX’s has a lovely tropical smell, although it did leave a white residue at my roots, which was difficult to blend out. I have very fine hair, and this formula did not assist with volume. This is the perfect dry shampoo to reach for when you’re looking for a fresh fragrant boost, but as far as oil-reducing or volumizing goes, I’d look elsewhere.
Verdict: I was so happy with March’s Target Beauty Box. I love the large samples and array of new brands they are bringing to the table. This box is such 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 $26.09, over triple the $7 box cost (which includes free shipping), an excellent value!
