The Target Beauty Box just may be my favorite subscription box out there. I’ve tried Ipsy, Birchbox, POPSUGAR Must-have, and Julep, but I’ve never really loved any of them for more than a month or two. Target, on the other hand, has been fun and worth the cost every time.
The February Target Beauty Box went on sale Monday, February 1st and sold out in no time at all. Thanks to some serious Twitter stalking over the last week, I was able to snag this month’s box to share with y’all.
The Target Beauty Box costs $7 and ships for free. Each month, it includes a $3 off $15 beauty purchase coupon. You know that’s going to come in handy during #YearOfTarget.
Here’s what this month’s Target Beauty Box included:
1. Soapbox Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner: While I hate the taste of coconut, I love the smell of it. These smell amazing (if you’re not a fan of coconut or tropical scents, you won’t like these) and I am definitely packing them for our vacation. Soapbox also helps give clean water to a person in need for every bottle purchased. I dig it. Keeper!
2. Mayfair Soap Foundry Body Creme: I received the Sea Lilly Jasmine scent. I was worried it would be too floral and perfume-y, but it’s actually a very delicate scent. The lotion goes on easily and isn’t greasy. I’ll be popping this in my purse to use on my hands because I can’t get enough lotion on my skin this winter. I may purchase the full-size to use as a body lotion. Keeper!
3. Vera Wang Embrace Eau de Toilette: I’m very eeeeeh about this one. I am not a perfume person. I do own perfume (Jimmy Choo, if you’re wondering) and wear it, but I find myself wearing it less and less. This green tea and pear blossom perfume is clean and light, but it’s just not my scent. Toss!
4. L’Oreal Boost It Air Blown Texture Mist: This spray promises to add texture and volume for a “lasting full-body air-blown look from root to tip” with “instant root tease and buildable body.” I’m always game to try new blow dry sprays. I’ve loved a lot of the L’Oreal products I’ve tried and this is a full-size product at 4.2oz. So if I love it, I’ll have it to use for a while. I’ll be trying this out the next time I want to do a wavy/messy look with my hair. Keeper!
5. Skinfix Lip Repair Balm: A lip product in a February box makes perfect sense. Pucker up! I’ve used Skinfix products before, and I love their hand cream, so I have high hopes for the lip repair balm. It’s flavor-free, which I dig. It goes on easily and it will make a nice base for my typical lip gloss. Keeper!
6. Bath Pouf: I know a lot of people are disappointed with little additions like bath poufs, but I like them. I’m a germ freak when it comes to loofahs/poufs, so I’m all about having a new pouf to replace the one in my shower. One less thing to buy on my next Target trip. Keeper!
7. Laneige BB Cushion: This is how foundation/BB/CC samples should work. Three shades to choose from and an applicator. I hate when I get a sample of foundation or other skin tone product and they send everyone the same shade. This is especially helpful with Laneige because the full-size product costs over $30 and I don’t want to waste money on a shade that doesn’t match my skin tone. I’m currently in love with my NYX BB Cream, but I’m looking forward to trying this one out. Keeper!
8. Derma e Hydrating Night Creme: If we’re being honest, I never use a night lotion. I use my Clarisonic and head to bed. Probably not the best thing for my skin. I’ll give this night creme a whirl and see if it makes any difference in how my skin feels in the morning. It’s not greasy, but the scent is quite heavy. Keeper!
9. Incoco Nail Polish Applique: This was my least favorite product in the box. I am a nail polish girl. I like the ritual of painting my nails. I love peeling it off two days later. I’ve tried nail stickers before and I just haven’t been impressed. Also, the pattern I received isn’t anything I’d ever put on my nails. This is a full-size product (valued at $6.99), so it does make the price of the Target Beauty Box worth it for this product alone. I just won’t use it. Toss!
Even with two toss items, the February Target Beauty Box was more than worth the $7 cost.
