First off, sorry for the late post XD here’s a picture of a sleepy puppy to make up for it:
Onto the excitingness for today, Target Beauty Box! I’m getting so much better at knowing when it’ll be up and getting my hands on it. This month the box is actually still available (as of 9:00am on 11/17/2016) for seven dollars! I paid ten for it a few weeks ago!
The Target beauty boxes go up the first monday of the month and sometimes they last less than a day, other times they stay available through the month. They range anywhere from five to ten dollars and have a good range of samples and full sized products. The October box was kind of a let down with a cushion foundation that under-performed. Fingers crossed this box is a good one!
The theme this month is “beauty Ballot” (haha, I see what you did there Target) with a beautiful blue paper, not very seasonal but I’ll go with it.
The first thing I noticed was the HASK Keratin Protein deep conditioner because I actually just bought myself a few of these the other day. Hair masks and deep conditioners are becoming a part of my weekly hair routine since I started going blonde. These retail for $1.99 and there are a few to choose from, giving a range for pretty much every hair type. Thumbs up so far!
Next up is a day cream from Andalou. This cream boasts to have rose stem cells (wtf.) that are going to work wonders on sensitive skin. I have extremely sensitive skin and day creams tend to make me break out (the only one I’ve ever been able to use is from Aveeno), so I’m willing to give this a shot. While this says roses all over it, this cream is pretty much odorless, which I appreciate. The full size of this product comes in at $24.99 for 1.7 ounces, making this sample value in at $5.88.
So far, I’m liking this box. The next two products I’m going to lump together because I’ll most likely be passing them on to my sister and not using them. First is the L’Oreal lash primer in white, cool I guess. I have never used a lash primer and I probably won’t start today. This product retails for $5.99. The next one is the Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in black. I like this eyeliner but I’m still stuck on my It Cosmetics liner and my sister will get more use out this than I will. It retails for $5.49.
I also got a L’Oreal Paris volume filler shampoo sample. I have a sh*t ton of hair on my head, but it’s very fine so it looks thin, volume is something that I’m always looking for. I’m kind of bummed there wasn’t a conditioner but I’ll still try to use this shampoo with my regular conditioner. The retail price is $3.57 for 12.6 ounces, not a bad deal.
Resting in the bottom of the box was a face mask from Laneige, it’s a water bank soothing gel mask, something I can totally get behind. I don’t go out an purchase masks because I get them so often in beauty subscriptions so I’m excited to have another. This one retails $24 for a set of 5, that makes each mask $4.80, very reasonably priced. I really like gel masks because I feel like they do more for my skin even if that’s not necessarily true.
And here is the product I am totally, one hundred percent, psyched about. W3ll People is an organic makeup brand that I would never be able to justify purchasing for myself as it is pricey. I’m not a full-fledged vegan by any means, but I do believe very strongly in animal rights so I try extremely hard not to purchase products from companies that are not cruelty-free. In the Target Beauty Box I got a Bio-Brightener Cream in Universal Glow, I’ve heard only good things about this product and even the mini size is $11.99. They didn’t have any of the mini highlighters in stock on their website and Target did not even have a product page. *shrug*
All in all, I’m really excited about the products I got this month, I definitely won’t be throwing any of these away and the value is incredible! If you can, I suggest you get your hands on this!
Until tomorrow! Xx
