Unboxing January 2017 Target Beauty Boxes (Both of Them!)

[ contains affiliate links ]

I did get both Target boxes this time ~ it seems to me that there was the “standard” Beauty Box at $10.00 and a box that had more hair care products at $5.00

Target Beauty Box #1 

This was their more “standard” Beauty Box, containing makeup, skincare, hair care and body care products.

Info Card

Target Beauty Boxes always come with a coupon that you can use in store or online.  This one expires at the end of the month ~ usually they don’t expire until the next month.

Rejuvenate your look from head to toe with the latest Target Beauty Box. In this box, you’ll find a few of our favorite beauty products to refresh your beauty regimen for a new year. Value of the box is $38. Test ’em out and tell us what you think. If you love ’em as much as we do, you can find the full-sized versions at Target and Target.com/beautybox.



Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion This is made with 12% lactic acid (derived from milk), which is an AHA and will help exfoliate dead skin, leaving smoother and softer skin.  It is also supposed to be pH balanced as well. I found this to be very hydrating on my skin. It does a a little bit of a bitter scent, but that goes away quickly.  Amlactin is recommended by dermatologists.   As this does contain an AHA, please remember to wear sunscreen.  2 oz  RV $3.16

Description: AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion has a special formula with clinically proven 12% lactic acid that’s pH balanced for the skin. Don’t let the word “acid” concern you. Especially since lactic acid is a naturally occurring humectant for the skin with a certain affinity for water molecules to help keep skin hydrated. And the more moisture that can be retained deep within the skin, the softer and smoother your skin feels. In addition, by encouraging natural skin cell renewal through exfoliation and delivering intense hydration deep within the skin, this lotion creates a soft, smooth texture you’ll love.

Ingredients: Water, Ammonium Lactate, Mineral Oil, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Laureth-4, PEG-40 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylcellulose cosDNA analysis


Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub in Peppermint YES! I love lip scrubs.  This is made with vitamin E,  soybean oil, shea butter, safflower oil, sunflower oil and coconut oil to help moisturize and condition lips, while the sugar and AHA citric acid will gently exfoliate to make them smooth.  This scrub also contains refreshing peppermint flavor and I can really smell it when I open up the jar.  This uses naturally sourced ingredients ~ way to go Chapstick!  Love this item.   Full Size .27 oz RV $4.99

Ingredients: sucrose, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, capryloyl glycerin/sebacic acid copolymer, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, beeswax, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed wax, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, tocopherol, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, passiflora edulis seed oil (maracuja), glycine soja (soybean) oil, citric acid  cosDNA analysis

Revlon Kiss Balm in Sweet Cherry  This is a very cherry smelling lip balm with a sweet taste.  It is a sheer pink color that can be built up a bit ~ not a lot, but it is a lip balm, after all.  It has SPF 20 for some UV protection and it has natural fruit oils, such as pomegranate, raspberry and grape oils. This comes in other shades as well, like peach, berry and red.  It is a bit of a slim, chubby stick and has a twist up applicator.  Full Size  RV $4.99

Description: Revlon Kiss Balm Lip Balm is ultra hydrating lip care that provides instantly softer, smoother, kissable lips. The hydrating formula is infused with natural fruit oils, in sheer juicy color and comes with SPF 20 protection.

Active Ingredients: Avobenzone 2%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Oxybenzone 3%. Inactive Ingredients: Polybutene, Diisostearyl Malate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacrylate-2, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate, Polyethylene, Ozokerite, Diisopropyl Dimer Olinoleate, Cera Alba (Beeswax),  Fragrance, Flavor, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Rubus Ideaus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Euphorba Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Cetyl Palmitate, Benzoic Acid, Oxidized Polyethylene, BHT, Silica, Sodium Saccharin, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Citral, Amyl Cinnamal, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Linalool.

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion (99% natural) I have used this before and I will repeat my original review here ~ This lotion is for dry skin and in the winter time, my skin can get chapped and raw if I am outside shoveling snow.  This is when I would use this creamy hydrating lotion, which is, surprisingly enough for a “dry skin” cream, very lightweight.   This is lotion will absorb quickly into your skin and contains clary sage, soybean oil and my friend, lactobacillus.  It is their best anti-aging daytime moisturizer and has been clinically proven to deliver hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, according to their website.   It is dermatologist tested , noncomedogenic, non-greasy and contains “probiotic technology”, which just means that it has fermented ingredients!  Good to see Burt’s Bees using lactobacillus 😀 Travel Size RV $2.52

Clary Sage — Clary Sage thrives in its harsh Mediterranean environment due to its ability to trap and retain moisture. This remarkable botanical inspired Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration, our natural ode to soft, supple skin.

Ingredients:  water, caprylic/capric triglyceride, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, parfum (fragrance)*, propanediol, salvia sclarea (clary) extract, lactobacillus, astrocaryum tucuma seed butter, trichilia emetica seed butter, cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, aloe barbadensis leaf powder, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) peel polymnia sonchifolia root juice, lecithin, alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, maltodextrin, tocopherol, xanthan gum, glycine soja (soybean) oil, stearic acid, sodium PCA, potassium stearate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, phenoxyethanol, amyl cinnamal, eugenol, hydroxycitronellal, linalool. *natural fragrance  cosDNA analysis

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Re-Volumizing Serum and Moisturizing Cream These are just samples and I am a bit surprised at Target ~ they would normally try to give bigger samples than foils.  The Revitalift series is supposed to help plump up your skin as they contain hyaluronic acid ~ an intensive moisturizing ingredient which bonds water to keep skin hydrated.   It is a natural substance found in the human body and it made up of amino and uronic acids, and helps retain 100 to 1,000 times its own water weight in our skin cells.   RV $1.00

Description: Dermatologists’ latest approach to anti-aging is not just about chasing after lines and wrinkles, it’s about replenishing skin’s volume. Skin loses volume when levels of Hyaluronic Acid—a naturally occurring, hydrating substance within the skin—starts to decline. As volume is gradually lost, the effects of gravity become more apparent—skin loses fullness.  Dermatologist tested for safety. Suitable for all skin types. Volume loss intervention. Volumizes skin, smoothes out wrinkles. Visibly improves skin’s fullness

Recommended daily regimen:

  1. Cleanse – Revitalift Cream Cleanser
  2. Treat – Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Concentrated Serum
  3. Moisturize – Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer

On cleansed skin, gently massage the Daily Re-Volumizing Concentrated Serum over the entire face, concentrating on areas as needed. Then, smooth the Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer over entire face until thoroughly absorbed.

eb5 Original Facial Treatment Intense Moisture Anti-Aging Cream I have never heard of eb5, but they have been around for 60 years. This cream is made with soothing and moisturizing oats which will “regulate” your skin’s pH level (?), along with vitamin E, allanotin and comfrey root ~ all 3 will help with celluar growth and healing, pro-vitamin B5, an antioixdiant that combats free radicals and reverses free radical damage and vitamin A, which will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a heavier cream, but it doesn’t feel greasy or tacky on my skin and it is scentless.   I am not sure about the regulating pH level thing, hence the ?.  Sample Size  1/2 oz RV $3.81

Description: eb5’s original skin care facial cream, proven gentle and effective for over 60 years. It delivers intense moisture and gives you healthier, younger looking skin. Great for all skin types, including sensitive skin.  Can be used as a makeup base, throat cream or chest cream as well.

Nexxus Comb Thru Volume Finishing Mist Hairspray I love hairspray and this mini size is great to toss in my backpack.  This does have a light floral/powdery scent, but it disappears quickly.  It is a light weight spray, so don’t view this as one that will keep your hair in place during a windstorm.  It does have some nice moisturizing and protecting ingredients, oligosaccharides, soybean, ceramide, wheat lipids and avocado oil, along with vitamin E.  Travel Size  1.5 oz RV $1.78

Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment Now, this was another reason that I wanted this box (lip products were the first).  I LOVE clarifying treatments for my hair as I use a lot of products ~ mousse, hairspray, leave-in conditioners, hair oil, etc. I need to have a clarifying hair rinse to help remove that buildup.  You use this after you shampoo and condition your hair ~ you must condition your hair, as this is not a conditioner.  Then apply this all over your hair, leave in for a minute or two and rinse out.  First, this smells great ~ very lemony. Second, it does leave my hair cleaner and shiny and I feel that it does do the trick. So much so, that I have ordered a full sized item and used my Target coupon!  This is paraben and cruelty free.  Sample Size 2 oz RV $1.50

Description: Restart the clock on healthy hair. Over time, product buildup causes hair to look dull and lifeless. Lemon Rinse™ Gentle Clarifying Treatment returns hair to its natural glory with active lemon extracts that gently cleanse and tone, rapidly restoring weightless body and shine.  Adds Shine | Seals cuticle.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes I love facial wipes, they are great for removing the oil, makeup and grime from the end of the day ~ I use them once I get home from work and just want to quickly cleanse my face without a full wash up.  I do wash my face at night, but before I go to bed, so these are great to have as a quick cleanse.  I also like to keep some in my car, to help with spills and messes when I drive ~ sometimes I spill my coffee or other food items and need a quick way to not only clean my hands, but other places that got spilled on.  remove makeup and impurities while being gentle on skin.

Colgate Enamel Health Whitening Toothpaste Wow ~ this is FULL SIZE.  I thought it would be a sample, but it isn’t.  My teeth do need whitening as I drink a lot of tea and coffee, which stains ~ also, as we get older, our enamel gets thinner, so this toothpaste will help strengthen your tooth enamel by replenishing calcium.  This toothpaste will also polish, fight back cavities and freshens breath. Its active ingredient is Sodium Fluoride (0.24%) (0.15% w/v Fluoride Ion).   4 oz RV $2.97


Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner I love this leave in conditioner!  I was looking for Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Leave-in Conditioning Mist at the drugstore last year and didn’t find it.  I did find this item, and even though it states it is for dry, dull and brittle hair, it works wonders as a detangler on my fine, oily hair. Plus it smells AMAZING. I have also tried the Sacred Tiare too.  Carol’s Daughter products are a must try for anyone.  Trial Size 2 oz RV $2.99

SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Shampoo and Conditioner I do love SheaMoisture products ~ their Fruit Fusion Weightless shampoo and conditioner are amazing.  These two products, however, have a ton of rose ingredients!  I knew that when I purchased this box, and thankfully, these are just foil samples.  SheaMoisture is made with natural and certified organic ingredients, and they have a proprietary “peace rose oil” complex, made with alpine, damask and musk rose oils that will soften your hair.    15ml (shampoo) 30 mL (conditioner)  RV $1.32

Mane ’n Tail Shampoo I actually use this to wash my cat!! haha.   It is too rich for me, but my older cat suffers sometimes from itchy skin, so I gently bathe him with this product.  It seems to work nicely, although HE hates the process (and so do I!)   This shampoo contains a micro-enriched protein formula  that leaves your scalp clean, without stripping of your natural oils, leaving hair soft and shiny.  I know that it helps with my cat’s itchiness.  Deluxe Sample 60 mL RV 42 cents

Final Thoughts

Beauty Box #1 had some great lip products and I love the hair rinse!  That is one of my favorite items in the box.  I do think they went a bit overboard with three different types of facial creams, but they are sample sizes, so I guess no harm done there.  I would have liked to see a mud mask in this box to replace one of the facial creams.  Target claimed this box was worth over $38.00, but unless sample sizes are really different, I came to $23.75, which I am really okay with as that is over double the $10.00 amount I paid for it. 

Beauty Box #2 has one of my favorite products ever ~ Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner ~ and really, for me, that was worth the price of the box.  Some of the hair care products I cannot use, but that is okay as I knew this going into the purchase of this box. Toothpaste is ALWAYS welcomed ~I was totally floored that we got a full sized toothpaste in this box.  I received a value of around $13.00, which is great for a $5.00 box ~ although Target stated this was worth $20.00. And it could be ~ making samples and mini sizes of jars and bottles cannot come cheap!

I am pretty happy with both boxes ~ Beauty Box #1 is still on sale at this time, so if you want it, hurry up and order it!!  Did you get any of the January Beauty Boxes from Target this month?  What were your favorite items?
