Target Beauty Box comes out once a month and you have to grab them up because they go quickly! Each box is $7 but this one is no longer available. Make sure to sign up here to get notified when future boxes go on sale!

My products came in a white box and were wrapped in orange tissue paper.

Hello FRESH FACE! This month is all about products to help you put your best face forward.

The product information card listed the products included in the box and a little info about each item. There was a coupon for a purchase in-store or online to save $3 when you make a $15+ beauty purchase.

The box was packed full!

Everything in my box!

Colgate Optic White Platinum Toothpaste in Fresh Mint ($2.41) I’m just about to go on a week-long trip and this is going in my bag! It’s just under half of the regular full-sized product.

It’s supposed to whiten teeth in just 3 days! I’m not sure about that, but it reminded me of a baking soda-based toothpaste and was also a little warming. Target says to use regularly for 4 weeks for best results.

Sleek Make Up Major Matte Lip Cream ($3.68) When I saw the shade I thought, whatever, another nude color that will not look good on me, but this is why I try all the products I receive because sometimes they turn out better than I first thought.

It has a classic doe-foot applicator and went on smoothly, although I used a lip brush to get it in all the right places. It dried very quickly and stayed in place, and the color had a bit more reddish pink to it than I expected.

Here it is swatched. I liked it and the smaller size means it’s perfect for popping in my makeup bag for on-the-go touch-ups. This shade is called Daydreamer and I couldn’t find this color at Target.com or online anywhere else.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water ($1.22) Target, did you read my mind? How did you know that I also needed a small bottle of eye makeup remover for my trip, just like I needed toothpaste? It’s uncanny. I cheated and tried it last night and it did a good job of removing my eye makeup without burning my eyes.

Eylure Cosmetics London Accents No 003 ($4.99) I have never tried fake eyelashes. I’m not sure that I ever will but luckily I have two daughters who love them! It even has a little bottle of glue to get them to stick but it contains latex so skip it if you are allergic to that ingredient.

Up & Up Premium Cotton Rounds ($0.06) I buy these all the time for removing eye makeup and applying toner. I used mine up when I tried the micellar water shown above.

Good Chemistry Queen Bee Perfume With Essential Oils ($3.12) Hi, my name is Debbie and I am addicted to perfumes. I have about 100 little samples and dozens of larger vials because I like to smell like whatever I want to at any given time. I have 365 days a year to go out smelling good and I embrace the challenge.

I saw some in-store sample bottles of new, inexpensive niche perfumes the last time I was in Target so I am happy to see one in the box. This brand is exclusive to Target and is a division of Illume – I’ve received some Illume products in my NOSEJOY subscription box.

The scent has notes of peony, amber, and black currant and is a fruity floral that reminds me of berries when I first sprayed it on. The base notes are more floral and although it says it has orange and patchouli essential oils in here I can’t detect them at all, and I am the Patchouli Princess! Part of the Vibrant & Playful collection, it is a good scent for summer. I suggest Target make a sampler pack of all 16 scents and sell as-is (although put them in a sample sprayer first!).

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Plumping Mascara ($7.99) With three women in the house I can never get enough mascara so I am always excited when it shows up in a box, and this one is full-sized!

The brush tapers from the base to tip and is meant to plump up lashes. I tested this on one set of lashes and something else on the other lashes, and this one just didn’t do much for me. My problem is that my lashes are short so I need lengthening products but one of my daughters will surely love this one.

I thought the June Target Beauty Box had a great assortment of products, almost all for the face! I am very excited about having travel-sized toothpaste and eye makeup remover, these are perfect for my week-long vacation! The cotton pads are long gone and the mascara and lashes will go to my daughters. The perfume will be added to my collection and the lippie is a keeper! My box had a value of around $23.47, which is more than 3 times the cost of the box!

    Luna, it sounds like you and I have a lot in common, one can never have too much perfume or skin care. Or tea. I know that’s off topic but just saying.

    I loved your comment about your perfumes!! That’s very similar to what I tell people when they question how I can use up all of my skincare. I’m like… well, I wash my face at least 730 times in a year (on the rare occasion I’ll wash it 3x in one day if I want to re-do my makeup before going out at night), so I’m not too worried about it. haha!

    I love that Target included that perfume sample, and I just wish we could use the coupons they include on fragrances too.
