I heard about the Target Beauty Box awhile ago, and was so pumped to find out that they are only $5-7 SHIPPED! I know they sell our fast so when I saw the Back to College Beauty Box I knew I had to act fast. Even know I’m not going back to college this Fall, I thought the assortment of products in this box was great. Sometimes these boxes have ALL beauty products, or ALL hair products, but this one had a little bit of everything.
Here is the rundown of the products included, and my review of each one!
Wet N Wild Mega Volume Plus Mascara // FULL SIZE! Priced at $4.99
I surprisingly LOVE this mascara. I’m always skeptical about inexpensive makeup, since it’s usually lacking quality. I have always been a fan of Wet N Wild lipsticks though, so I was optimistic when trying this mascara. The wand is like a slimmer version of the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, which is my all time favorite. Because the wand is slimmer the brissels reach those tiny lashes that usually get left out. I’ve been using this mascara first, and then using the LashBlast on top for added volume.
Goody Ouchless Elastics // $6.49 for 37 Elastics
These work great as far as elastics go (I SO wanted to call them hair ties). I just won’t wear these because of the bright colors. I like black elastics so they blend into my hair naturally.
Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Illuminating Dry Oil Spray // FULL SIZE! Priced is $5.99
You guys this stuff really confuses me. There are no directions on the bottle, so I just assumed since it’s an oil spray you are supposed to spray it on the dry parts of your hair (also known as the ends). So that’s what I did, and I was left with weird oil just sitting on my hair, making it looked like I hadn’t washed it in months. It didn’t soak in AT ALL, and I to rinse it out. If anyone knows the proper way to use this please let me know! I assume since it says DRY OIL SPRAY you are supposed to put it on dry hair, but I could definitely be wrong!
The Bathery Luxury Pumice // FULL SIZE! Priced at $1.99
I actually really like this comprted to other pumice stones I’ve used. The rope makes it easy to hang in the shower and the grain is very fine so it works wonders on your feets!
COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lip Gloss // FULL SIZE! Priced at $5.99
Ok so I should preface this by stating that I DO NOT like lipgloss. The colors are always unnatural (no one’s lips naturally contain glitter) and it’s very messy and gets everywhere. This color was more of a muted pink, so if it were a lipstick I would definitely enjoy it. But it’s not, so I’ll probably never wear it. It’s ok Covergirl, you still have my heart. (P.S. I think the shade I got is “candylicious”)
Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape // $8.89 for 36 Pieces
I’ve used this stuff before and I love it! It comes in handy when you have a low cut dress. Which ironically I’m wearing tonight to an event, so this came just in time! It does a great job of keeping the dress in place, without pulling your skin.
Yes to Cucumbers Face Towelettes // FULL SIZE! 10 Ct. for $2.99
I’ve tried the “Say Yes to Carrots” brand before and didn’t really care for it, so I was nervous to try these. But I had no reason to be, because they’re great! I’m weirdly picky about face wipes. I NEVER buy the generic brand because I feel like they leave an oily film on my face. My two go-to face wipes are the Pond’s Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes because they actually foam without water so I feel like my face gets really clean. I’ve also been loving the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes because they take my makeup off effortlessly. These cucumber ones are great too. They have a nice scent and made my face feel soft and fresh!
Overall I would say that this box was an amazing deal, since it included SO MANY Full Size items. I will definitely be using the mascara, fashion tape, and face wipes on a regular basis 🙂
