Target Twelve Days of Beauty Faves

I’m playing a bit of catch up with December right now…or actually November. Yup, I ordered the Target Twelve Days of Beauty Faves Advent Calendar ($24.99) some time before Thanksgiving, although I waited until December 1st to start opening the windows. I meant to open one each day…but I kept forgetting and I had to hustle to open the very last window on December 31st.

Day 1: NYX Extreme Lip Cream in “Nude Peach Fuzz” (formula is great, but the color looks horrible on me – will be giving to my daughter)

Day 2: EcoTools Angled Kabuki Brush

Day 3: Sinful Colors “Silver Flash” (I don’t have this one!)

Day 4: Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist

Day 5: ME! Bath Soap Bomb (I don’t have a bathtub in my new bathroom…meh.)

Day 6: Pacifica Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash (At least I don’t have to eat the Kale.)

Day 7: Burt’s Bees Lip Balm (I absolutely HATE sticking my finger in lip balm. I just won’t do it.)

Day 8: Mayfair Soap Foundry Body Creme in “Sea Lily Jasmine”

Day 9: Pixi Glow Tonic (Not sure how this oil “exfoliates”, but I’ll bite.)

Day 10: ACURE Day Cream Gotu Kola Stem Cell + CGF

Day 11: Umberto Dry Lifting Powder (Nope.)

Day 12: Laneige Sleeping Mask (This is MY JAM.)

As of this writing, the set is still available – at a discounted price of $14.99. I would have been much happier to have paid $14.99 for the set, as there are at least 4 products that I won’t use and plan to give away. I feel it was overpriced for what was in the set, although I was very happy about the Pacifica, Acure and Laneige products.

Target Beauty Box – February 2016

/

I can’t believe how much stuff is in the February Target Beauty Box – “Sweet Treats”. It is bursting to the seams.

Inside the box: Soapbox Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner; Mayfair Soap Foundry Body Creme in “Sea Lily Jasmine” (Smells good); Vera Wang “Embrace” Eau de Toilette (Pear blossom and green tea – reminds me of my mom); L’Oreal Boost It Air Blown Texture Mist; Skinfix Lip Repair Balm; EcoTools Bath Pouf (it’s a bit tiny, but I can always use these); Laneige BB Cushion (Now that I finally tried the first sample I got, I’ll actually use this); Derma e Hydrating Night Creme (nice); and Incoco Nail Polish Appliques (I need to try these – this is the third pack I’ve gotten).

Just $7 for this box, with a $3 off $15 coupon inside. I need to hurry up and use the last 2 I got – they expire on Sunday.
