Target December Beauty Box

Whoa! For the month of December Target came out with not one but two beauty boxes!

They have one for him and one for her!

Let’s talk about the women’s beauty box first.I’m interested in this box because you get to try the TRESemmé Pre-Wash Conditioner and Shampoo. I also can’t get enough make-up pads and I love anything Nivea. What I find really cool about this box is that they give you something to store it all in!

For $7 here is what you will find inside:

I tried the Walmart Beauty Box and won’t be repurchasing

Oops I did it again.

I’m really starting to think that I have a problem. But once I saw that the only cost for this box is a $5.00 flat rate shipping fee I had to subscribe!

Walmart sends out seasonal beauty boxes. As each box comes out they send you a reminder email and charge you.

The shipping schedule for the Walmart Beauty Box is as follows:

  • Summer – starting the second week of June
  • Fall -starting the second week of September
  • Winter – starting the second week of December
  • Spring – starting the second week of March

Below is my initial comparison between the Walmart and Target Beauty Boxes.

Walmart:

  • Subscription
  • Won’t miss a box – On August 24th I signed up for the Summer 2016 box which started shipping the second week of June.
  • No cost for box only flat shipping fee of $5.oo

Target:

  • Not a subscription
  • Easy to miss a box – They sell out fast and if you’re not waiting around by a computer at the end of the month.
  • Cost varies monthly

I actually ended up cancelling my Walmart Beauty box subscription before my first box arrived because I was angry that it took forever to ship and I didn’t receive any updates.

I did end up receiving the box but I felt like I wasn’t comfortable paying for something that I couldn’t keep tabs on. Let’s say I got busy and forgot it was coming. I couldn’t even find a place to contact a customer service rep to ask about it.

HOWEVER, I was pretty impressed with how many things come inside (not so much the size though)

Without further ado – here are the contents of my box:

 

At the end of the day, this beauty box had way too many foil samples. Is the value over $5? Absolutely. But is a box full of foil packets worth your time? No! They’re super annoying and if its a product that you haven’t tried before you won’t be getting enough to determine if you really like it!

I say skip the Walmart Beauty Box and look elsewhere.
