Thoughts on the Target Summer Beauty Box

I’ve disappointed myself in the past by missing a few of these boxes from my absolute favorite place to shop (seriously, I’m here at least once a week). Thanks to My Subscription Addiction for giving me a heads up on this one!

What’s inside:

Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads – I used one of these to remove my old polish before trying out the one provided in the box. It removed it quickly, and 1 pad is saturated enough to use on all 10 nails. Great to use for travel.

Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist – Shake the bottle to combine the ingredients before spraying on hair. It contains a UV filter and sunflower seed oil to help protect hair against frizz, color fade, and dryness while adding shine. It has a light citrus scent, which I like. I don’t apply do much of this near my roots for fear of the greasies, but I do concentrate it a bit more on my ends. This will come in handy for more frequent use once I color my hair.

Olay Regenerist Luminous HydraSwirl Eye Cream – I haven’t been very much into eye cream and don’t use it much. But after seeing this, I was intrigued. I happened to be pretty tired when I first applied it, and it actually made me look more awake. The product’s swirled formula helps to brighten the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles. I wouldn’t say the circles under my eyes are really that dark, but I’ll take all the help I can get if that means going through all of this!

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick – Again, I’ll stress that I’m not so much a lipstick person as I used to be. This wax-free gel formula was convincing enough to try at least once. I received the color Gladiolous, wihch is an intense red with an orange undertone. Definitely something out of my preferred shade spectrum (hello, neutral junkie here). I felt like all eyes would be on me when I wore this, but at some point during my day of running errands, I didn’t really care. It kept my lips hydrated and the color lasted at least 4 hours, even after eating. Not bad! If I did choose to buy this in the foreseeable future, I would get the Camilla shade.

SinfulColors Professional Nail Color – I’ve been using this brand of nail color for some time now, so I’m already a fan of it. I received a bottle of Energetic Red. They should have named it Electric Red instead, because this stuff is BRIGHT! I used it on my toes and it’s lasted well over a week with barely any chipping.

This box is valued at $40, and I only got it for under $10 with free shipping after using my Red Card. Score! It also comes with a coupon for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more. This is the 3rd box I’ve purchased from them and I’ll gladly buy more if I can get to them on time. Did you also purchase this beauty box? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

    That’s not a bad box at all! Full sized products including a nail polish and lipstick! I’ve heard good things about the Olay swirly skincare, glad it made a difference to your eye area!
