Target Beauty Box – March 2019
I almost didn’t purchase this month’s box, because of the Love Beauty & Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner – lavender sometimes gives me a headache, but then I remembered that I received them in a Birchbox last year and they were fine.
Also in this month’s “March Into Spring” box: Bliss Rose Gold Rescue Gentle Foaming Cleanser (rose gold everything!); TRESemme Botanique Nourish & Replenish Mask (for hair); Shea Moisture Matcha Green Tea & Probiotics Soothing Toner & Hydrating Mist (I never know what do do with these); and Shea Moisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment (it smells super good). These products are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I am here for it.
This $7 box is heavy, but with a smaller number of products. As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and it came with a $3 off $15 coupon. I did not manage to use my coupon last month, but I have high hopes for this month’s coupon.
Target Beauty Box – February 2019
Oh hey, I found this Target Beauty Box hidden on my counter, under a pile of mail.
February’s theme is “Love Yourself” and is all about pampering. I definitely will be pampering myself – the box includes: Nexxus Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo & Conditioner (cannot wait to try these); Love Beauty & Planet Citrus Peel Dry Shampoo (I still haven’t figured out how to use dry shampoo right); Pantene Airspray Hairspray; Boots No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum; Que Bella Professional Selfie Ready Sheet Mask; Dove Shampoo/Conditioner 2-in-1 Clean+Fresh; and Native Coconut & Vanilla Deodorant (interesting).
This $7 box is packed . As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and it came with a $3 off $15 coupon. I did manage to use one of the coupons I received last month – I bought a bunch of St. Ives face scrubs and washes for my kids. You’re never too young to start a skincare regimen!
Target Birthday Shopping
Nothing burns a hole in my pocket like a Target coupon. For my birthday last week, Target sent me a coupon code for an additional 5% off a shopping trip – I had to use it before it expired!
I really didn’t need anything specific, so I just wandered. The first thing I grabbed was a replacement up & up dip-it and a bag of Exfoliating Cotton Rounds. That was the point that I noticed the rack of Sinful Colors Nail Polish. I’ve been so bummed that Walgreen’s no longer carries them. Walmart will have the new collections soon, I’ve heard – but until then, I had consigned myself to going without. What did I spy, but random bottles with “New Shade” Stickers in the Core Collection Display. Don’t mind if I do! I picked up three of the new shades – “Hot Toffee”, “Raisin the Roof”, and “Spring Fling”. I also picked up an older shade I had never seen before – “The Full Monte”.
As I moved on through the aisles, I came upon a HUGE display for Flamingo Products. Flamingo is a service similar to Dollar Shave Club – basically, a subscription box for razors and wax strips. We’re quite happy with Dollar Shave Club, but I thought I’d give the Flamingo Face Wax Kit a try. At $9.99, it was a bit more expensive than the Nads Kits I had been using, but I feel like it was much more gentle to my face AND I was able to use less strips to get the job done. Nice!
And yes…that IS a Spongebob Squarepants Outfit for my Barbies. It says, “Sponge On!” – it was very important for me to have it!
Target Beauty Boxes – January 2019
Two boxes again this month – and they are BOTH for me and my skin!
The blue box is “Hello Skin-sational!” It’s all to moisten my winter skin! Included in the box: Vichy Mineral 89 (like Heinz 57 for your face?); Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub; Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream; Dove DermaSeries Body Lotion Replenish; La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Cleanser; La Roche-Posay Redermic R (I guess now that I’m getting old, I need that retinol); and CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream. I am gonna use ALL of these.
The yellow box is “Hello Flawless Beauty Finds!” It has all kinds of different stuff: Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Deodorant (ugh, I really want to try their new deodorant, but lavender gives me a headache – I’ll have to see if they make a rose version); Method Body Wash in “Pure Peace” (peony and rosewater – omg, my favorites); Up&Up Premium Cotton Rounds; Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise All Day Liner; Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil (I wonder how this would do on my giant belly scar?); Schmidt’s Naturals Travel Sized Toothpaste with Activated Charcoal (I’ve been wanting to try charcoal toothpaste); and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof.
Two stuffed boxes for $7 each . As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and each came with a $3 off $15 coupon – one for skincare only and the other for any beauty products. I didn’t use either coupon last month – I had them with my when I went to Target, I bought $20 of shampoo for the house…and I forgot to to pull a coupon out of my purse. Goddamnit.
Target Beauty Boxes – December 2018
My Target Beauty Boxes got here quick! I mean…they sat on the counter for about a week before I opened them, but they got here quick.
I love His & Hers Beauty Boxes. My box – “Hello Glow!” – has lots of citrus scented products: bliss Lemon & Sage Body Butter; ME! Bath Coconut & Lime Bath Bomb (would it be tacky to stuff this in one of the kids’ stockings?); and Dr. Teals Pink Himalayan Body Scrub. I love citrus-y stuff. There’s also some non-citrus stuff: Que Bella Professional Plumping Gold Peel off Mask; Ponds Cold Cream; and Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo (no conditioner – assholes!)
His box – “Hello Handsome!” – has lots of good stuff, too. My husband will enjoy: Degree for Men Black & White UltraClear Antiperspirant; Harry’s Shiso Body Wash; Crest Gum Detoxify Toothpaste (cooling activated foam!); Dove Men+Care Body Wash Minerals + Sage; Cremo Bourbon & Oak Solid Cologne (my son said it smells good, but it smells like a bar rag to me); Bulldog Skincare Sachet Perforated Trio (moisturizer, face wash & shave gel).
A good value for $7 each . As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and each came with a $3 off $15 coupon for beauty/personal care. I hope I get a chance to use them!
Target Beauty Box – November 2018

Well, since I ordered the December Target Beauty Boxes today – YES, there are TWO – I should probably tell you what was in the November box?
My dry winter skin needs ALL the products in this month’s “Hello Hydration” box. Inside the box: Hask Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner (super deluxe sample bottles!); bliss Drench & Quench Cream-to-Water Hydrator; Aquaphor Lip Repair (my poor lips need this so bad); Lumene VALO Overnight Cream; and L’Oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Care Moisturizer.
I cannot wait to moisten myself with these beauties! I will be so MOIST.
A good value for $7. As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and a $3 off $15 coupon (that expired yesterday, December 3rd).
Target Beauty Boxes – October 2018

Two boxes for two months in a row? Yes, please!
The “Hello Bright Eyes!” box is ALL eye products – I have two of them! The product that excited me the most was the Sonia Kashuk Brow Line + Fill Brush with Spoolie. I don’t have a full size Brow Brush – I’ve been using the tiny brush that came with an ABH Dip Brow Sample. This product alone is worth the price of the box. Also in this box: Acure Radically Rejuvenating Under Eye Hydrogel Mask; Lumify Eye Drops; Covergirl Get in Line Liquid Eyeliner; and Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Mini. This box is the total package!
The other box is “Hello Autumn Groove” – products for the changing seasons. I squee’ed when I saw the Olay Total Effects Whips Moisturizer – I love this stuff. The Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Shampoo and Conditioner also went straight into my shower. Also in this box: Tom’s Luminous White Toothpaste with Flouride (not a fan of this stuff – tastes weird); bliss Makeup Melt Dry/Wet Gentle Jelly Cleanser with Rose Flower; and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion.
And you cannot really see them in the picture, but even the boxes themselves are fancy. They have designed on them, kind of like Birchboxes.
Both boxes had the usual $3 off a Beauty/Personal Care purchase of $15 or more. (I already used one of them yesterday – both my kids were out of shampoo/conditioner…and OF COURSE they each demand a different brand.) Each box was $7, with free shipping and 5% off with my Red Card.
Target Beauty Boxes – September 2018
View this post on Instagram
It’s been a few months since there have been two Target Beauty Boxes – any even longer since both were for ME.
The “Hello Beauty Reboot!” box is full of products to reboot your beauty routine for fall – and more rose products! I am truly and thoroughly loving this rose renaissance! I cannot wait to try the Weleda Wild Rose Body Wash and Garnier SkinActive Facial Mist Spray with Rose Water (even though I rarely use the Pacifica Rose Facial Spray I already have – what do they even do?) Also in this box: Olay Facial Cleansing Infusion with Crushed Ginger & Citrus; Nivea Smooth Daily Moisture Body Lotion; Schmidt’s Naturals Charcoal Magnesium Deodorant (hmmm, the last one gave me a rash); OGX Coconut Miracle Dry Shampoo; and L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer Base. A packed fucking box!
The “Hello Quench & Glow!” box is all masks, which I need, since Sally and I did ALL the masks in Vegas. In the box: Lumene LAHDE Hydration Recovery Aerating Gel Mask; TRESemme Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask Sachet; Acure Brilliantly Brightening Biocellulose Gel Mask (gross, there’s kale in it); Miss Spa Energize Facial Sheet Mask; and Masque Bar Rose Gold Peel Off Mask (yassss rose gold!).
Both boxes had the usual $3 off a Beauty/Personal Care purchase of $15 or more. Each box was $7, with free shipping and 5% off with my Red Card.
Target Beauty Box – August 2018
So…does my box look a little…wilted…to you?
When I pulled this month’s box out of the mailbox, it was rather moist. I thought it was due to rain earlier in the day…I was wrong. The moist-ness was coming from inside the box! It was the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Tropical Banana Sea Salt Spray. The bottle is now half empty and everything in is smells like fake bananas. Bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
I cannot stand banana scented crap. If Lily doesn’t want it, this shit is going into the trash.
Also in this month’s box: Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes (great for correcting eye makeup); Acure Brilliant Brightening Day Cream (another great brand); bliss Fab Foaming Face Wash; Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Body Lotion; and Schick Intuition F.A.B. Razor (5 bi-directional blades that shave forward AND backward – sounds dangerous!).
Other than the leaky sea salt spray, this is a great value box for $7. As usual, free shipping, 5% off with my Red Card and a $3 off $15 coupon.
Target Beauty Box – July 2018
I will happily take all the rejuvenation I can get – this summer is so hot that a couple of hobbits threw aa ring in my backyard.
I cannot wait to try the Shea Moisture African Black Soap & Charcoal Body Scrub – all the sunscreen has left my back an oozy mess! I don’t know which is worse – sunburn or clogged pores?
Also in this month’s box: Clean & Clear Jelly Sheet Mask; HASK Coconut Dry Shampoo; Nivea Foaming Silk Mousse Body Wash; Up & Up 3 Day Whitening Kit (Oooohhh…for my teefies); TRESemme Repair & Protect 7 Mask; and Acure Brilliantly Brightening Facial Scrub (love this brand).
The box was $7, with free shipping and 5% off with my Red Card. I plan on using my $3 off $15 coupon within the next few days – it expires soon!
