As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am not invulnerable to hype. I've made more purchases than I'd like to admit because I thought something was rare or sought after and that, if I didn't get it, I would regret it and feel left behind. Or something like that... While the Target Beauty Boxes have consistently been worth the money and definitely worth checking out every time they release, I think I purchased the June women's box not because I liked the products, but because these boxes are getting more and more popular and selling out faster and faster each month.
Quick Run-Down: monthly-ish beauty/makeup sample box curated and sold by Target online; not guaranteed to come out each month but has been released monthly on the first Monday of the first week of the month; boxes vary in value from $5-$10, shipping included, and can come in different varieties, included men's and women's boxes (again, not guaranteed, though there has been at least one women's box each month); technically not a subscription box since you can't subscribed to it, it's first come first serve and when the box sells out, it's sold out for good.
Overall, I got seven deluxe/travel sized products, one full size product, and three foil packet samples for $10, shipping included. I don't calculate the values of my Target Beauty Boxes since I know they're worth the $10, but this box seems to have a smaller value than some other ones I've gotten (I looked some things up and the most valuable sample, the L'Oreal Revitalift, is worth a little under $6. The lip balm is $2 and the facial wipes are $3, so there's $10 right there, but the other samples don't feel like they add much more to that). Since I knew pretty much exactly what I was getting when I ordered this box, it's my own fault for being disappointed with any of the products I received, but I do feel like the quality of these boxes starting to slide as they become more popular and sell out faster. I'm curious to see what the July boxes will bring (and will know better than to purchase one just to purchase one if I don't like the products in it!).
Thanks for reading! <3
