UNBOXING!

I love unboxings. I think they are a really fun to see what comes in subscription boxes, and I’m a huge fan. It’s not always easy for me to get out of the house, and I don’t always feel like I can stand in a makeup store and check out everything they have. Let’s face it, I think any makeup lover can get lost in Ulta or Sephora haha! I have gotten lost in Ulta and I don’t always realize in the moment what I’m doing to myself, standing and walking around for an hour or two (or three hehe). Subscription boxes are a really cool way for folks like me to check out new products without a huge investment in time, money or physical exertion.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that Target and Walmart offer beauty boxes!! Target’s box isn’t a subscription, meaning you actually have to go to the website and order every month. For around $7, that’s not such a bad thing. Walmart offers two boxes, the Classic, which is geared toward women over 35, and the Trendsetter, geared toward women under 35. Their boxes are sent quarterly, and are $5 each. I used my daughter’s info to order the Trendsetter. I can be trendy. No, really, I can be!

My poor box took a beating, but check this out! Included items are a Masque Bar soothing sheet mask, a full size Sinful Colors Professional nail polish in Clad in Plaid (It’s showing up orange but it’s not. It’s more of a pinky coral.), a Schick HydroSilk 5 blade razor, and NYX Goctha Covered concealer in medium. Also, travel sizes of Aussie 3 Minute Miracle conditioner, Hawaiian Tropic 30 SPF sunscreen, and John Freida sea salt spray. There was also a $3 off on a $15 beauty purchase, not pictured. That’s four full size products and three travel size. With tax, this was a little under $8. This box is valued at $31.93. I call this one a winner!

The first photo is the Classic box. There’s a collagen mask from SOO AE (one of my fave skin care companies), a royal jelly night cream from Bert’s Bees, coconut oil moisturizer and liquid coconut face oil from Palmer’s, a travel size roll-on deodorant from Ban, travel shampoo and conditioner from Gliss and a travel size Colgate Optic White Beauty toothpaste. The Trendsetter box contains several of the same items, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, moisturizer and face oil. There’s a sample of Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation (and a coupon), a travel size Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment conditioner, Bioré baking soda acne scrub, and a travel size Dove deodorant. I couldn’t find a value for the boxes. These travel size items are coming in very handy, as my daughter is leaving Monday for a two week trip to Canada, via train. It’s her first trip by herself and certainly her first time out of the country! These boxes came just in the nick of time haha

I think these are fabulous boxes for the price.What are your thoughts? Thinking about adding these to your subscription list? To order the Target box, simply go to their website and search beauty box. To get on the Walmart list, click here  and enjoy!
