I was finally lucky enough to snag the Spring 2015 Target Beauty Box - thanks to all the gals who posted a heads up on Instagram! It became available ONE DAY after I started my no-buy...but someone was watching over me because I remembered I had a Target gift card in my wallet with juuuuust enough on it to cover the cost! Here are my thoughts:
Maybelline Color Elixir in Rose Redefined - Value $5.95
This is a full size (yay!). I have another one of these in Glistening Amber and I like it, but I really like this shade. The formula is great - more pigmented than a regular gloss, just the right amount of stickiness, and it smells good too! It lasts slightly longer than a standard lip gloss, but not as long as a long-wear lipstick or stain. It's easy to apply and doesn't need lip liner or a lipstick underneath. I am happy with this!
Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Shampoo - 3.2 oz Value $3.99
This does smell amazing, but I am not sure if I'd purchase a full size. It's a little heavy for my fine hair, so I can't use it every time I wash my hair. It is sulfate free, and my hair needs the sulfates. But I will use this up and consider buying a different formula from this brand. I have some bath oil and bath salts from Shea Moisture and LOVE them!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Facial Moisturizer - Value $2.65
I was really excited to try this, but was a little underwhelmed. It is a little sticky when you first apply it, so for that reason, I will just use this at night. I did like the way my skin felt the next morning. This might be a good night cream in the summertime when I don't need my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.
TRESemme Tre Two Spray - 1.5 oz Value $1.47
This is my go-to drugstore hairspray, so of course I was happy to receive a small size for travel! It doesn't flake, it's not too stiff, and it smells nice!
L'Oreal Infallible Pro Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray - Value $13.99
This is the full size people! I really like this. It is just as good as the Urban Decay All-Nighter, in my opinion, and is much cheaper. I work out in the afternoon, and this helps my makeup look presentable afterwards! (Unless I'm really sweating, in which case there isn't a setting spray made that would help!) I wish the spray was as fine as the UD, but I have an empty UD bottle that I may pour this into. Problem solved!
I am really happy with this box. The combined value of the products is a little over $28, and they also included a $3.00 off a $15 beauty purchase coupon. The advertised value is $38, but I can't figure out where they got that number. Still, it's an amazing value and I will definitely jump on the next one! I wish they would offer it as a subscription box like Walmart does though. Did you get one of these boxes? What did you think?
