My makeup/beauty collection is reaching critical mass (again), and I'm due for a destash, so I'm trying to get through all of my January sample boxes and beauty purchases in order to integrate the products into my collection so I have a better idea of what I have and what I have too much of. January was a very fruitful month for sample boxes and Target released two different beauty boxes. And I got both of them.
The first Target Beauty Box I want to share with you is the Refresh box.
I already explained how these boxes work, so I won't do a quick rundown, but I will add that the prices of these boxes can vary depending on the contents. I've seen boxes as low as $5 and boxes as high as $10. The two boxes for January were $7 each; these prices include shipping, but not tax, so I ended up paying $15 or so for both boxes. They also shipped individually, which was kind of odd; one shipped a day earlier than the other, but they bot arrived at the same time. The products come in a sturdy black box, which varies in size according to the amount/size of the samples (I have a few of these boxes and there are two distinct sizes). When it ships to you, it comes wrapped in plastic; there is no outer shipping box.
And that's the January 2016 Refresh Target Beauty Box! If you're interested in getting these sample boxes, I highly recommend following Nouveau Cheap's blog and/or instagram since she always posts spoilers and alerts when they go on sale. Since these aren't subscription boxes, they are first come first serve so you have to be quick in order to get one; they go up pretty early in the morning and most of the time sell out in the early afternoon. If you do manage to get one, they are well worth the price!
Thanks for reading! <3
