Moving on to Target Beauty Box’s summer skincare and haircare picks for May!
It is so hard to find a sunscreen for the face that doesn’t leave a white cast or greasy mess behind. Brands like Paula’s Choice and Drunk Elephant do a really great job with their SPF formulas, but I already pay an arm and a leg for skincare, so it is hard for me to justify shelling out that extra cash when the drugstore has this amazing formula. It is one of my go-to’s, and the price is definitely right! It is so comfortable to layer on over your AM skincare, and it always looks flawless under makeup. Plus, it is SPF 50! I also don’t mind the traditional sunscreen scent, which dissipates quickly after application.
Heritage Store Rosewater Spray, 2 fl oz – Retail Value $4.79
This is a totally new brand for me. I always appreciate a hydrating face mist, especially now that spring is slowly turning into summer. Rosewater is known for its hydrating benefits, but this spray uses glycerin, too, for added moisturizing benefits. It feels refreshing on the skin, but sometimes the rose scent is a little too potent for my liking.
Bioré Charcoal Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, 1 Strip – Estimated Value $1 (Buy 6 strips for $5.99)
I remember when Bioré came out with their first version of pore strips. my sister and I would set a timer and compare our strips, and sometimes we would even rip each other’s strips off, which usually led to one of us stomping away in tears. What fun! Haha! These are just the same as I remember, although I think I am a lot gentler on my skin now. I let the strip dry and slowly lifted it to uncover seemingly clearer skin. It is always satisfying to see the gunk this product lifts out of your pores!
HASK Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner Packet, 1.75 oz – Retail Value $1.79
I use hair masks on the regular; my favorite formulas have detangling properties as well as frizz control and deep hydration without weighing my hair down. I honestly didn’t notice any added benefits from using this compared to an everyday conditioner. It isn’t a thick mask and wasn’t especially hydrating or detangling. It had a subtle citrus scent that didn’t survive past the final rinse. I don’t see myself picking this product up again; it worked fine, but I have a lot of others that I enjoy using much more.
COLAB Original Dry Shampoo, 1.6 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.31 (Buy 6.7 oz for $5.49)
I have a slew of different dry shampoos that fall into different categories, and this one falls into the “hair refresh” group; that means that it helps to keep hair fresh with its light and crisp fragrance, but it really didn’t do any type of oil control or texturizing. I liked spraying this on my roots on 2nd day hair; it didn’t leave a white cast on my hair, and it smells very fresh and clean.
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray – Tropical Banana, 2 fl oz – Estimated Value $1.20 (Buy 8 fl oz for $4.79)
I love sea salt spray for added texture. My hair falls straight if I don’t use any products, but with a few spritzes of this product, I had more voluminous waves, and the best thing about this spray is it didn’t leave my hair clumped together or crunchy at all. It was easy to comb my fingers through my hair after it dried, and the fragrance is a day at the beach! Lovely!
Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-In-1 Primer, 1 fl oz – Estimated Value $2 (Buy 6 fl oz for $11.99)
I ended up really enjoying this hair primer! It is a dry oil that adds shine, reduces frizz, and provides heat protection; it detangled my hair making it a breeze to comb through, and I also really love its fragrance. I only needed two sprays to coat my hair, so this small sample will last me.
