Hello! Hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you my September 2015 Target Beauty Box.
Technically, this is not a subscription box since you can't subscribe to it (which would be the definition of a subscription service...) and it also technically isn't a monthly box since there are no promises that it releases monthly, but Target has been offering these sample boxes pretty much on a monthly basis for a little while now.
These boxes are incredibly popular and sell out very quickly, so I consider myself lucky to have gotten my hands on this one! Admittedly, one of the reasons why I think I was able to snag one was that this box included mostly curly hair related products and no color cosmetics, but since I do have curly hair and am always looking for products for my hair, this box was perfect for me!
Nouveau Cheap (either on her blog or on her Instagram) since she releases the spoilers for what's in the boxes, along with release dates. Plus she gives you a ton of reminders on Instagram!
I already touched on a lot of the info you need if you want to get one of these boxes, but again, it's technically not monthly and it's not a subscription box, so you kind of just have to know when to look for it and when it releases. The best way I've found is to follow Nouveau Cheap on either her blog or on Instagram. The price she listed for this box was $7 (which includes shipping), but my cost was only $5 (which also includes shipping). Since I'm from Minnesota (where Target is based out of) and since it looks like my box shipped from Indiana, I'm thinking the price differs based on where you live to help cover any additional shipping and handling themes. It could also be different based on state taxes or things like that, but all I know is that my box was $2 less then I thought it would be!
Overall, I am very happy with my first Target box! I know that I was able to get it since a lot of people weren't as interested with it as they have been with past boxes, but all the products are relevant to my needs and are things I can use. There were six products in this box, 2ish were full sizes, and the total value of my items was about $17.13. Along with my $3 off a $15+ purchase coupon, I'd say this box was $5 well spent!
