Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing the holiday women’s Beauty Box from Target! This month there were two Beauty Boxes, both holiday themed, and one for each gender. I picked the women’s box, of course! This box was kind of annoying as I had to check back a million times before I finally found it on sale. This box went on sale pretty late, normally boxes are on sale the week before the month ends for the next month but this one was released last week. I don’t see the women’s box anymore online, which is odd as usually you can still see them even if it’s sold out, but I do see the men’s box.
In case you’re interested, here’s what I received!
First up is the Hask Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner. There are always hair products but they seem geared towards hydrating the hair, which is actually not really what I want. I have oily hair and I’ve read that hydrating products can increase that. But I do want to branch out with my hair so I’ll probably try it sometime. I believe it is a full sized product valued at $1.99.
One of the full sized products in this box is the Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara. Apparently it’s supposed to release product when you shake it so that it doesn’t dry up. It sounds so interesting! It does come in the color 004 Very Black and I can’t wait to try it. I’m using a sample right now but I might switch to this one after. This mascara retails for $5.99, which paired with the conditioner above, it already makes back what I paid for the box! (The box itself is $7.)
This box is full of full sized products! I also got a box of imPRESS Press-On Manicure nails which retails for $5.99 too. Well at least I think they do, the website features different packaging and I couldn’t find the same kit that I have. On the back it has a coupon for $1 off another manicure set which is cool because all boxes also include a $3 off $15 beauty purchase already so not only is it cheap and full of great products, but also amazing incentives to buy more! (It does totally work with me.)
Back to the samples! I got a spray of Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist. I believe it’s just a hairspray, which I don’t use often but I may have to as I’ve been putting my hair up more often and always get flyaways!
Next is the Vera Wang Embrace Fragrance. The notes are mango, melon, cardamom, marigold, gardenia, sandalwood, and soft musk. I think that’s quite a lot going on already! Let me give it a sniff. Okay so I sprayed it and it was quite a lot going on but it smells so good! I didn’t think it was a particularly winter-y scent at first but as the top notes faded it does seem more appropriate. It smells so luxurious!
So the next item is My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask. I used to do a mask once a week and then things go busy and I stopped doing that. I really want to get back to it! This mask says it helps repair complexion so I’m excited to try it.
Okay, more full sized now. I think it’s just a holiday thing as most boxes have 1-2 and the last box didn’t have any I don’t think.The last item is full sized, and it is a Chapstick Red Lip Tint. The color is House Red, which is a Target exclusive! I think it’s so adorable and I have been loving tinted chapsticks lately as my lips have been so dry. I can’t wait to try this one out and it’s perfect timing as my current red one is almost out! It does retail for $4.99.
And that’s the women’s holiday box! I think it’s a great box, especially because there’s so many full sized products. The men’s box has stuff like deodorant and body wash and stuff, so theirs seems to be more of a body box (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?) and so I’m curious as to what their coupon is good for. It makes sense that they could use theirs towards body care as they may not be interested in cosmetics but that hardly seems fair as the women’s box doesn’t include body products and we use those too! Honestly the only things I’m upset I didn’t get the men’s box for is another sample of that Crest Whitening Therapy toothpaste that I received for free before (in my Influenster Sparkle VoxBox) and the Dove deodorant spray as I have a more female version that I got in a previous Beauty Box. I guess I can’t complain though, as the rest of the stuff wouldn’t interest me at all.
So I know usually these boxes are on Wednesdays as that’s my day to post beauty related posts but I figured I’d go ahead and get it done early! My goal is to get these up before they sell out so people have a chance to buy it but as you can see, these go pretty quick. I just ordered it last week, received it yesterday, and it was already off the website when I checked right away. But, as always, let me know if there’s something you’re particularly interested in seeing a review of! I’d love to know!
