I'm back with you today sharing what was in my latest Target Beauty Box(es) for the month of July!
What is the Target Beauty Box?
I'm glad you asked! Target's Beauty Box isn't like your regular monthly beauty subscription like BirchBox or Ipsy, instead it's more of a "surprise" because Target never advertises when it's going to be released.
How much does it cost?
Another great question, the boxes range from $5-$10 from what I've seen, obviously the higher dollar price the more/larger products are included in the box.
This month there were 2 boxes (some months there are only one, some months there is one for men & one for women, etc.) and both were $7.
How can I find out when they're released?
You can try to check back to Target's website daily at the beginning of each new month & see if you can catch it, but your foolproof way is to "like" my page Southern & Style on Facebook because I always post the link as soon as the boxes are up!
You can also follow me on Twitter, my handle is @SouthAndStyle, I tweet the link to the boxes out as well.
Now that all those details are worked out-let's get into the two boxes!
I'll share all of the products with you, let you know what I think, and then I'll pick a winning box!
L'Oreal Color Vibrancy Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner
Although these shampoo and conditioner smell really nice, I don't color my hair (fun fact, I've never colored my hair!) so I'll be passing these on to my mom or sister.
Dessange Paris Purifying Clay Balancing Shampoo (for oily roots & dry ends)
So normally I would be irritated, really irritated to get two shampoos in one box-but I really am excited to try this one, because I suffer from oily roots and dry ends so badly.
Wet n Wild Max Fanatic Cat Eye Mascara
Of course I haven't tried this one yet, but I can say that I'm happy to see some actual makeup/beauty in this box!
I love trying out new mascaras and the packaging on this one is really nice.
I love getting little pots like these!
Aquaphor is such a great product, here are just a couple of things you can use it for:
Moisturizing chapped skin
Relief from blisters
Ease pain from dry, cracked lips
Smooth dry cuticles or heels
Soothe a painful runny nose
Protect cuts and burns for faster healing
Basically it's great for everything!
I'll either be tossing this in my bag or keeping it in my emergency bag at my desk just in case.
Acure Facial Cleansing Gel
I'm so excited to try out this product because I love skincare (even though these boxes are usually skincare heavy, which is annoying!)
I'm almost out of my Exuviance Cream Cleanser, so I'll be trying this one out after that's done.
It has a really nice, fresh scent that I'm excited about.
Derma-E Firming DMAE Eye Lift
I'm also looking forward to using this, after I finish up my Tula eye cream.
I love pampering my skin and notice a true difference when I use products that take care of it, I'll have to let y'all know how this stands up to my Tula one!
Fresh & Fabulous
Umberto Beverly Hills Lifting Powder
I have never, ever heard of a product like this one, but I'm excited to try it!
I'm always looking for a quick way to add some lift and body to my roots so I'm more than willing to try it.
Tom's of Maine Anti-plaque and Whitening Fluoride Free Peppermint Natural Toothpaste
I have actually heard several people mention this brand so I'm going to hope that it's a good one!
We've got a couple of trips coming up, so I'll be glad to have a travel toothpaste for my toiletry bag.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Moonlit Night
This lipstick is so, so creamy.
I love the color but unfortunately it isn't really a summer shade, so I'll hold on to it until Fall.
Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15
I love using a daily moisturizer with SPF in it, and I'm slowly working my way through my stash since I've been better about moisturizing twice daily.
I can't wait to try this one out!
Sweet Spot On-the-Go Wipes
I love the idea of having these on hand, they're so small so they can be tucked into a purse or gym bag, even a backpack if you're going to school.
I'm thinking they would be great for spills, sticky hands, sweat, or even if you get stuck in a stall with no TP!
Dove Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo & Conditioner
These smell really nice, and once again I love having travel sized shampoos/conditioners on hand (even if I just use them because I'm too lazy to go to the store and pick up a full size new shampoo).
But I'm so sick of shampoo being in every single box, let's get some more makeup!
What's the verdict?
Well, normally people would assume the bigger box would win, but not in this case!
I am going to have to choose the smaller box because I really like the idea of those individually wrapped wipes, the NYX lipstick, and the root lifter.
I think they're both pretty nice boxes as far as value goes though, & I'm trying things that I normally would not try.
If you could pick a winning box (or a winning product) which would it be?
Let me know below!
Until next time. . .
