Target Beauty Box

Sunday, March 02, 2014

Heads up! has a new beauty box available for sale! Cost: $5 (plus applicable tax and shipping). What's inside and is it worth it?

1) TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (2.5 fl oz): Want beachy hair without hitting the surf? Spray from root to tip for salty, sultry texture and subtle, windswept waves. Retail: $4.99

2) L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (.22 fl oz): Stretch and lengthen lashes for a fluttery, winged-out look with this unique mascara formula and revolutionary asymmetrical Butterfly Brush. Retail: $7.99 to $8.99 depending on the store

3) Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo (1.7 oz): Give hair a rejuvenating boost with this paraben and colorant-free formula made with natural tapioca to instantly absorb excess oil with less residue. Retail: $1.99

4) COVERGIRL Smoochies Sizzle Gloss (.44 fl oz): Pucker up. Sheer color meets sizzling shimmer in a moisturizing formula that’s always stunning, never sticky. Retail: $6.49

5) Jergens BB Cream Light (2 fl oz): Finally, a multi-tasking beauty cream in a quick-drying formula that goes on sheer and delivers visible results in just 5 days. Value: $3.46

Approximate box value: more than $24.92

If you have a Target RED card (store card or credit card) you can save shipping and also get 5% off. If you don't have a Target RED card and use a regular credit/debit card then there is shipping of approximately $5.49 PLUS applicable tax. You can purchase more than one but keep in mind that shipping (again, if you don't use a Target RED card) will go up with each item you buy.
So is it worth the price? Depends on how you look at it. If you have to pay for shipping and tax then the price is around the cost of a Birchbox or Ipsy bag and the cost of the items in exceeds the total price. If you don't pay for shipping then this is an absolute steal since it's only $5 (plus applicable tax) so for under $6 you're getting a box/bag full of pretty good products. Now if you dislike drugstore brands then obviously this won't be a good deal for you, unless you resell the items or swap the items on swap boards. Personally, I bought four - one for myself and one for each of my girls and paid under $26 for the four yet we're getting almost $100 worth of products. Hopefully by buying each of my girls their own bag they'll stop raiding my Toni & Guy products! lol


Edit: Looks like there is suppose to be free shipping on this box but the site will (at the time of this post) charge you for shipping. If you purchase this and are charged for shipping call Target at 1-800-591-3869 and get a refund. From Target Style's Facebook page:
