April 2020 Target Beauty Box “Clean Routine” Review

This month Target featured clean beauty and body care products with skin-loving ingredients that won’t.

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 April’s clean picks!

artnaturals Vitamin C Serum, 0.33 fl oz – Estimated Value $4.29 (Buy 1 oz for $12.99)

Vitamin C serums revived my complexion and saved my skin from looking dull in the past; I cut way back on skincare while I was pregnant, and now that baby is here, it is time to revamp my skincare regimen. I added this serum to my AM routine, and I really like the thin watery texture. I needed to use about 6 drops to cover my face because I felt like my skin was just soaking it in almost instantly. After wearing this for two days, I did notice a subtle hint of glow to my complexion. I have a few acne scars that I am hoping will fade with some help from this serum.


hello bpa-free toothbrush – Estimated Value $3.50 (Buy 2 for $6.99)

It is kismet that I received this toothbrush yesterday because the night before there was an unfortunate incident with my old toothbrush, and I dreaded going out to the store today to replace it. Fate was very kind to me because not only is this toothbrush extra gentle on my gums, it is actually a very stylish and sleek design, making brushing less of a chore. Each bristle is infused with charcoal giving it that cool black hue, and the comfortable handle is made up of plant-based materials. The brush head is a little smaller than I am used to, but overall, I love this upgrade and will definitely be repurchasing in the future.

Love Beauty Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Hand Cream, 1 oz – Retail Value $4.99

After washing my hands for the 100th time yesterday, this hand cream felt luxurious on my outrageously dry hands. The scent is overpowering, but it fades after a few minutes of wear. A small amount is all you need for lasting hydration (’til the next hand wash or sanitizer use, of course) thanks to plant-based moisturizers. This vegan and cruelty-free formula is also free from parabens, dyes and silicone!


Lavanila Pure Healthy Vanilla Deodorant, 0.90 oz – Estimated Value $5.40 (Buy 2 oz for $11.99)

Lavanila makes my all-time favorite natural deodorant (specifically the lemon fragrance), and I’m so happy to know that Target now carries their product. This moisturizing deodorant smells so lovely and combats odor for all-day comfort. It stands up to a hard workout, but I would definitely recommend reapplying after a full-blown sweat session. It has a clean formula; that means no harmful elements like aluminum, parabens or baking soda.

hello hemp seed oil + coconut oil fluoride-free toothpaste, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.50 (Buy 4 oz for $5.99)

This year I started to dabble in fluoride-free toothpastes to encourage a cleaner beauty routine; I love hello’s dental products, and this seems to be the best hello flavor of toothpaste, yet! It is an invigorating mint that makes my mouth feel extremely clean and my breath extra fresh. I’ve heard in the past that coconut oil has teeth cleaning benefits, but this is the first hemp seed oil toothpaste I’ve seen. Both oils aid in moisturizing your gums and keeping your mouth happy, clean and healthy.

Verdict: Target Beauty Box had an awesome assortment this month! The toothbrush is an awesome find and totally came in handy and I love having a mini Lavanila deodorant to keep in my purse. Target Boxes just keep getting better and better! The value of this box is $19.68, almost triple the $7 box cost (which includes free shipping).

  1. Is anyone else seeing free delivery as the delivery price in the estimated order summary, “Free shipping & free returns on this beauty box” as an available offer, and a grayed out “edit cart to check out” buttton in the app? Despite two separate free delivery lines, both boxes say they only ship with a $25 order and I need to add more items to buy the boxes. I tried to call CS and wait time was in excess of an hour.

    • I used this box purchase to help me reach my 25.00. But, I just tried it and yes, my app has the same problem. I hate that they have a minimum for free shipping with red card, but even worse is not allowing you to make a purchase less than 25.00😬

  2. I was skeptical of the toothbrush because I usually don’t choose soft bristles and the head was smaller than I’m used to. But I’ve been using it for the last week and absolutely love it.

    • It is the best!!

  3. I love this toothbrush!!! Also am loving the hand cream due to washing my hands all day every day but it dosent seem to last long, it’s very moisturizing at first but seems to wear off after a little bit. I cant wait to try the serum this coming week after the Serum I’m using now is gone. Overall great box!

  4. Does the charcoal come off the brush when you brush your teeth?

    • It might steadily wear off after so many uses, but I haven’t noticed any fading yet.

      • Thank you, Abby.

      • According to hello, the toothbrush’s color wears down after every use so that by the time the brush is white, that means you’ve used it approximately 90 days, which is the recommended amount of time after which you should get a new toothbrush. Mine has started fading a little bit. A neat concept, I think. 🙂

      • That’s interesting. Thanks, Gabbi.

  5. My favorite item in this box is the deodorant. I’ve been using it every day and it’s surprisingly effective and smells so heavenly!

    • It is my favorite! 🙂

  6. The toothpaste tastes like Wrigley Spearmint gum! Love the toothbrush, too.

  7. Thanks for the review, Abby. This sounds like a great, useful box, I’m totally going to have to get one or two.

  8. I actually found the hand cream not as moisturizing as I had hoped, I had to apply more and didn’t really enjoy it. But, I really liked the toothbrush and toothpaste and look forward to trying the serum. It’s also nice that the coupon doesn’t expire at the end of the month.

  9. Love Beauty and Planet is NOT cruelty free. It is owned by Unilever, who tests on animals.

    • They are iffy. They don’t fall under parent company since it was made by the company. Unilever owns Tarte and Hourglass and both are cruelty free. And it’s not sold in Mainland China. I may wait for leaping bunny certification.

      • Tarte and Hourglass are also not cruelty free because they are owned by parent companies that test on animals. If you buy these supposed cruelty free brands, you are giving money to and supporting companies that test on animals.

      • But if more and more people buy the “cruelty free” brands under non-CF parent companies, it shows the parent company that there’s money in being cruelty free. Money talks. There’s some value in that, but I can completely understand not wanting a dime to go to non-CF companies.

      • Tarte and Hourglass are also not cruelty free because they are owned by companies that test on animals. If you buy these brands, you are giving money to companies that test on animals.

      • Tarte (owned by Kose) and Hourglass are also not cruelty free because they are owned by companies that test on animals. If you buy these brands, you are giving money to companies that test on animals.
