April 2020 Target Beauty Box “Spring Into Clean” Review

This month’s box focuses on switching up your skincare and haircare game for Spring.

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 Spring skincare picks!

 

Pacifica Glowing Makeup Removing Wipes, 10 count – Estimated Value $1.66 (Buy 30 wipes for $4.99)

I often reach for Pacifica’s Underarm Deodorant Wipes, which I love, so I was excited to try their skincare version. Glowing wipes are used to remove makeup, clean, and tone your skin. I used one wipe (one side for eye makeup and the other for the rest of my face) and it did a decent job of removing my makeup. I don’t think they were wet enough to remove everything, but my face was squeaky clean after a quick rinse.

The Good Stuff Complete Repair Balm, 2 fl oz – Estimated Value $2.39 (Buy 6.7 oz for $7.99)

This is a new brand for me; I rely on leave-in conditioners for detangling and smoothing, so I put it to the ultimate test: my quarantine ‘do! (Yikes!) I was actually impressed with how this product managed to tame my hair. I let my hair air dry, per the instructions, and it left my hair feeling soft and very easy to pull a comb through. I really liked its clean fragrance and the way my hair fell after letting it air dry.

 

Acure Resurfacing Overnight Glycolic Treatment, 0.3 fl oz – Estimated Value $5.99 (Buy 1 oz for $19.99)

I absolutely love it when Target samples Acure in their monthly beauty boxes! This treatment should be applied to a clean face at night, and you are supposed to wake up to a glass skinned complexion. To get properly acquainted with this product, I used it for the past two nights; I am just not seeing any results. I really didn’t notice any difference in texture or clarity, except that my face felt extra dry under my face mask. Sometimes skincare takes some time to show progress, so I will continue to use this a few times a week. I am impressed, however, with how gentle this formula is and how friendly it was to my sensitive skin. It’s also worth noting that Target listed the size of this item as 0.67 fl oz, but a 0.3 fl oz sample was sent.

SheaMoisture Cannabis & Witch Hazel Skin Rescue Cream Cleanser, 4 oz – Retail Value $9.99

My love for SheaMoisture burns a little brighter due to this cleanser. I loved working this creamy face wash into my skin. I am actually using the body wash from the same Skin Rescue line, and the two of them make up a dream team! My skin feels so comfortably hydrated and fresh after patting it dry. SheaMoisture is a brand I trust because they use the best skin-loving ingredients, and their clean beauty and cruelty-free status always put my mind at ease.

 

Spring & Vine Tea Tree & Mint Scalp Soothing Shampoo Bar, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $9.99

Shampoo bars are a fun way to mix up your hair routine, and I find that they really help build volume and texture. Spring and Vine’s added oomph to my naturally flat hair, and the hydrating shea butter and essential oils did not weigh it down. I could be a shampoo bar convert, but I do feel like after a wash or two I would need a clarifying shampoo to remove any buildup this hydrating bar leaves behind.

Verdict: This is one of my favorite Target Beauty Boxes, ever! It had two full-sized products and some of my favorite brands from Target. 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 every month. The value of this box is $30.02, outstanding value and a new record for Target Beauty Box!

  1. This is the second night I’ve tried the Acure product. I actually really enjoy it, so perhaps I’m in the minority. Usually, I double cleanse, use The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 10% and then use a face mist or serum before I apply the Acure product. It really does feel like an overnight mask due to the more heavier of a product, but not clogging my pores as of yet. I can’t tell immediate results on the Glycolic portion of the product, but I will say using my Lactic Acid from The Ordinary and this product, too, not only is my skin brighter, but the fine lines feel more “blurred” or whatnot. I maybe purchase the full size of it or maybe just buy another Target box.

  2. got mine the other day and bought the second today. great box in my opinion. everything is usable to me! i got the first bottle of the good stuff last year in a target box and loved it. the pacifica face wipes are awesome in this time of quarantine.

  3. Thank you for that lovely review, Abby. I just ordered the box and had a $5 gift card towards it that I’d forgotten about!
    I’m excited to try the hair soap but nervous about the cannabis cleanser. Eeek!

    • It’s hemp-based, not cannabis. No CBD or THC. If you’ve ever tried Hempz hand lotion it’s similar in terms of the name not equaling what you might think.

    • 🤦‍♀️ please take 2 minutes to learn the difference between cannabis and hemp.

  4. I liked this box, too. Ordered it to try the shampoo bar.

    The thing I don’t like is now they are requiring a $25 purchase to ship.

    • Mine shipped without having to purchase $25. I only ordered this box

    • Yes mine shipped without the $25 minimum as soon as I put in my Red Card as payment. Before I did that it was saying it required the $25 minimum. Try that.

      • Yes I did use my Red card. It was annoying, but I easily found another $18 of stuff to buy lol. Target always seems to have some sort of glitch.

  5. I love this months box, purchased two of them for the cleanser and face wipes. The conditioner was a pleasant surprise as well. The shampoo bar didn’t work for my scalp, but has done wonders for removing the grass stains from my gardening jeans!! A great laundry pre treatment when I can’t get to the grocery store as often as I’d like.

  6. I got the Good Stuff balm at least 2 years ago in a different Target box. I hope they’re at least using fresh bottles.

  7. Great review! FYI, you listed the
    Acure Resurfacing Overnight Glycolic Treatment as 0.67 fl oz but the front of the packet says .3 fl oz. Still a great overall value though! I bought a box for my cousin who is a nurse as a little treat.

    • Thank you for bringing that to our attention Liz — you’re totally right!

  8. Abby…..correct me if im wrong but on the Acure item it is 10 ml or1/3 of an once and the retail value would be only 1/3 of $19.99= $6.66.

    • Thanks, Kathy! You’re totally right 🙂 we got her fixed up for you!

  9. The directions on the back of Accure made me laugh. It’s like they were speaking to me. “Go to bed. Or tell yourself you are going to bed while you scroll your phone until wee hours in the morning.”

  10. I really liked this box. I found the shampoo bar effective for my thick curly hair with a good lather. The hair balm is one of my favorite. Hopefully Target continues with good boxes.

  11. I understand that the Spring and Vine packaging soap imprint is supposed to be their brand logo but I don’t think they thought that design through… 😂

    • My thoughts exactly! I saw the picture and thought, “Well that’s a strange concept to put on a shampoo bar…” 😂
      That aside, I thought this was a great box. First one I’ve ordered in quite a while where I’ll be keeping and using everything!

    • Yup. I saw and my mind went straight to the gutter.

    • Thank goodness it wasn’t just me! I was a little disappointed in myself for being so juvenile at my age so I’m super happy you ladies are right there with me!

      Also, I know I’m being a total stick in the mud but I really wish MSA would change the value of this box because it CLEARLY states that the ACURE product is only .3oz not .67oz. I know I’m being super uptight but it’s just screaming at you in the picture. When I opened my box the white sticker on the front of the ACURE is the first thing I noticed. It in no way takes away from the fact that this is a super awesome totally worth the cost box (I loved everything in it) but it’s just bugging me because of my own neuroses. Lol.

      • I 100% understand, and we took care of it for you! 🙂 Sorry about that!

    • Lol I laughed as well

  12. I’m weirdly excited to try the shampoo bar now that I have the box, lol.

    I don’t think I’ve purchased a Target box for at least a year, but I’m satisfied with this one. (And apparently so is my mom, who claimed the cleanser the day I received my box.)

    • I bring it to a lather with my hands before putting it on my hair. I just thought it felt weird to rub it directly on my hair/Scalp.
      Somehow I missed noticing the inscription on the bar, but it’s too funny.

  13. This was a great box. I’m especially excited to try the shampoo bar. I’m a little disappointed to hear that the Acure Resurfacing Overnight Glycolic Treatment did nothing for your skin.

    • Anything from a drug store is usually going to have such low percentages of active ingredient that it would take 4-8 weeks approx. to see any result.
