Target Beauty Box First Edition

I finally got my Target Beauty Box in the mail!  This sampling program is run by Target (which I love dearly) and lets you sample new products from trusty drugstore brands for extremely cheap.  As in $5.  Including shipping.  Yes please!

So what did it look like?



Tah-dah!  It reminded me of a supersized Birchbox, except with Target branding.  I loved it!




And voila, here is what I got in this box:

Gillete Venus & Olay Razor
It’s got 5 blades and is in a new Sugarberry Scent.  The Olay benefit is that it gently exfoliates and replenishes your skin’s moisture while you shave.  I’m all for multitasking~

Sally Hansen Salon Effects
I got this in the shade “Lust” which I’m really digging.  It’s a glossy black with gold and silver glitter on top.  I’m actually not a big fan of sticker polishes so we’ll see.

Frederic Fekkai  Glossing Cream
I’m already a big fan of this product!  It promises to hydrate, sleek, and shine, and from memory, it definitely does. My hair is a bit fine so I’m hoping that I can get all of those benefits without too much weight.

Loreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Light
This is a smaller sample, compared to the other ones, but that’s perfectly fine because a little BB goes a long way!  I wish it was in medium but that’s fine, I’d love to see what the texture is like.  This product will prime, perfect, hydrate and correct.  I’m excited!  I’d love to see if drugstore BB creams stack up to their $30 Sephora counterparts.

La Roche-Posay Laboratoire Dermatologique Effacular Duo Dual Acne Acne Treatment
Now that’s a mouthful.  I’ve never heard of this brand or this product before.  It’s got 5.5% benzoyl peroxide in it so I might save it for week of unfortunate breakouts.

BONUS: $3 off of $15 Beauty Purchase at Target (Can you guys read the coupon code? *wink*)



And that’s it!  I absolutely loved this Box and I’m very glad that I decided to try it.  $5 was a steal for these products!  I’d say the razor by itself hits the $5 mark, but with the deluxe glossing cream and nail strips, it was extremely generous.  I’ll have my fingers crossed for more Beauty Boxes in the future!

PS Did anyone else get this box?  I’m wondering if there were variations?
