Target offered a beauty box for $5 through their Target Style Facebook page? Of course I jumped at the opportunity, assuming it might be like the free sample beauty bags they used to send out. Well it came in mid June and I think it is even better than the freebie bags. Take a look inside:
Also included in the box was a set of Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips. I got 001 Queen Cobra, which is a shimmery gold and brown snake print. I have not tried any brand of nail polish strips yet so I am excited to give these a shot. I did open one package to look at the sizes it included (there are 8 different sizes for each hand) and noticed it does smell strongly of nail polish. I figure I can try out a full set of them and then maybe use the leftover strips as accent nails or something.
There was a really generous 2 oz sample of Fekkai Glossing Cream as well. I have not yet tried it but it smells great and I am looking forward to using it. I just finished the Davines conditioner and hair oil sample packets that came in my June Birchbox, so maybe I will start using this in combination with the rest of my sample bottle of the Davines shampoo. It's definitely in line to get tested soon!
There was a packet of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. This is a dual action acne treatment. I have not used it yet but am definitely interested in trying it.
All in all, for the $5 price tag and free shipping the Target Beauty Box is a steal! I hope they do more or even create a subscription service out of it. I'd definitely pay $5 a month for more boxes like these.
