Target Men’s Winter Box

As a little treat and early Christmas present to my boyfriend… I mean fiance!!! (A month later and I’m still  not used to that!) I purchased the Target Men’s Winter (not so beauty???) box! I won’t be reviewing this because I obviously haven’t used the products myself and he is not the “reviewing” type, but I’ll show you what we got in it!

This box was sold for $5. I estimate the retail to be around $20. I think my fiance was pretty impressed, and happy, that I had gotten this for him!

SoapBox Argan Shampoo 

This item has a bit of a story behind it. When I received my box, this bottle of SoapBox shampoo was open. It had leaked out onto my other products. I instagrammed my box, and mentioned that the shampoo had leaked. SoapBox messaged my on Instagram and offered to send me the travel kit (second picture) absolutely free! They absolutely did not need to do that and I was thrilled that they took such a great initiative to do that. The travel kit includes argan oil body wash, body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. They smell amazing, although I have not used them yet.

SkinFix Hand Repair Cream 

I used this cream once (before falling in LoOoove with my repair cream that came in my PopSugar). It did seem to hydrate my dry hands pretty well.

7

Burt’s Bees Facial Wipes

This is one of those facial products that I am just overly nervous to use. I love my current makeup wipes and am afraid to switch products!

6

Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Smoothie for Hair

I haven’t tried this product yet!

5

Borghese Age Defying Facial Scrub

I haven’t used this one either!

4

Acure Organics Facial Cleanser

I haven’t used this either, but it smells really good!

All in all, I purchased this box for $5. None of these products were full sized. I do estimate the retail value to be about $15-20. It’s definitely not a bad price tag, especially if you just want to try out new products!

Target Women’s Winter Beauty Box

Let’s see, third times a charm to get this finished and posted – right?! I hate when life gets in the way of my blog!

Target has a seasonal beauty box. I had received the fall box, and was able to snag the Winter box! This time around, Target put out a Men’s and an all-natural box! I got all three for $20! Not a bad deal!

Here is my review on the Women’s Beauty Box:

1

  • Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen (Target Exclusive) ($12)
  • Revlon HD Lacquer ($7.99)
  • Hair Food Thickening Solution (Target Exclusive) ($11.99)
  • L’Oreal Butterfly Intenza Mascara ($7.99)
  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Kit ($4.49)
  • ChapStick Total Hydration Lip Care (Target Exclusive) ($2.99)
  • Laneige Water Sleeping Mask (Target Exclusive) ($23; full size)
  • Boots No. 7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum ($17.49-23.99; full size)
  • 20% off Women’s Apparel purchase coupon
  • $3 off a $15 more Beauty Department purchase coupon

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Noir

I actually haven’t used this pencil yet, however I did swatch it and it looks like it will blend really well when I do get around to using it!

8

Revlon HD Lacquer in Garnet

I really love this color. It is a dark pink. However, I’m just not a fan of glosses!

7

Hair Food Thickening Solution

So far I haven’t used this product either. I haven’t had a hair cut in a while, until yesterday. Now that all my dead ends are gone I might try this little guy out!

6

L’Oreal Butterfly Intenza Mascara

I haven’t used this yet either. I’m super slacking on the reviews for this box!

5

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Kit in Blushing Nudes

I love this little guy. I’ve kept it in my makeup bag for “on the run” makeup looks and love it. The pigmentation is surprisingly impressive. (Or my primer is the bomb – which it is… {Bare Minerals 5-in-1 Eye Primer})

4

ChapStick Total Hydration 3-in-1 Lip Care in Sweet Peach

I also set this one aside for now. I have enough chapstick open right now!

3

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

This is a sample size of this product. I actually hadn’t planned on using this until I just looked it up on Target’s website. It is a gel (rather than a cream) which is better for acne control (so I was told). Maybe I will give it a shot after all!

2

Boots No.7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Anti-Aging Serum

This went into the “save for later” pile!

The retail value of this box is $47.45. I didn’t include the two sample sizes because they don’t have a true “retail value”. I only spent $10 on this box, so I feel as though this was a great box!

I’ll keep everyone posted the next time the Target box goes up!

Target Beauty Box – Fall 2014

The Target Beauty Box is very similar to the Walmart Beauty Box. This comes out based on the seasons. This box is $7 (which is $2 more than Walmart). I do prefer Target over Walmart in general so I had to try this box out as well.

Target1 Target2

Here’s what I got:

  • Elnett Extra Strong Hold Hairspray ($6.99)
  • Fekkai Professional Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo ($7.99-19.99)
  • LANEIGE BB Cushion Sample Target Exclusive ($34)
  • NYX Jumpo Eye Pencil in Milk ($4.49)
  • L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick in Nude Ballet ($7.99)

The retail of this box is a minimum value of $27! This does not include the BB sample because it was only a sample and the full size would double the retail price. On top of all of these goodies, there was a coupon for $3 off a Target Beauty purchase of $15 or more! Yay coupons!!!

Target5

L’Oreal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold Hairspray

This hairspray is supposed to leave your hair satin-y rather than crunchy and greasy like most hairsprays. I rarely use hairspray so I honestly have not tried this spray.

Target6

Fekkai Professional Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo

I don’t use dry shampoo. It creeps me out! My hair just gets too greasy too quickly and I feel like dry shampoo just makes it even worse. So, I won’t be using this either.

Target7

LANEIGE BB Cushion Sample

This is a 5-in-1 system that brightens, protects, cools, covers, and prevents shine. My younger sister confiscated this from me before I had the opportunity to try it for myself. She did give me a brief review of it, saying that “it wasn’t all that great”. With a price tag of $34, I won’t be purchasing this product.

Target4

NYX Jumpo Eye Pencil in Milk

This is the product that I received that I use the most. It makes an amazing highlighter for the inside corners of your eyes. I put this down and layer other colors of eyeshadow over top of it. It’s a beautiful look. This is definitely something I would recommend purchasing.

Target3

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick in Nude Ballet

I’m not all that fond of liquid lipsticks because they are too much like a gloss, but I do like this product. This color is definitely a nude and works perfectly for toning down brighter lipstick shades. It’s not overly sticky, so I can stand to wear it.

All in all, I have to say that I enjoyed my Walmart box more than my Target box. There was more products from Walmart that I actually have used. However, I will be purchasing both as soon as the seasons change!
