We’ve ordered a ton of subscription beauty boxes over the last several years. The Target Beauty Box was hands down a long time favorite because the products were from brands we were familiar with and easy to find if we eventually wanted to purchase a full size – because hey, we’re in Target all the time. Aren’t you? This post has been updated for 2021.
For a time, we ordered every single Target Beauty Box that we were able to get our hands on. At one time, these Beauty Boxes were so popular that they would sell out on the same day they became available online. We’ve pretty much given up our addiction to the Target Beauty Box for reasons you can watch in the video (scroll to the bottom of this post and click play) we made about the last box we bought.

2021 Update: Hi friends! We know you love the Beauty Boxes as much as we do. At this time it looks like Target has pivoted to Target Beauty Capsules. These are slightly larger versions of the beauty boxes we knew and loved. Check them out and let us know what you think!
Let’s talk about the Target Beauty Box!
This post was updated in March 2021.
The Target Beauty Box is now the Target Beauty Capsule
Target hasn’t released a Beauty Box since July 2020, but you can currently find two Beauty Capsules on their website, which both retail for $14.99 and contain nine items. The Target Beauty Capsule appears to be an upgraded version of the previous box and well-worth the upgraded price tag.
What is the Target Beauty Box?
The Target Beauty Box is a monthly box that contains anywhere from 5-7 beauty sample and full size items. Products inside the box include skin care, hair care and makeup. Each box also contains a $3 off of a $15 beauty purchase coupon to be used in stores only.
How much does the Beauty Box cost?
When first released, the Beauty Box was only $5 but now price fluctuates between $7-$10. There is no obvious rhyme or reason for the change in price but one would assume it’s because of the brand items included in any given box. Shipping is free and take 5% off with your REDcard!
Target used to allow you to order more than one box but now it’s one box per person.
Is the beauty box from Target a subscription box?
Nope. You’ll have to order each box monthly.
Are Target Beauty Boxes available in Target stores?
Occasionally you can find Target Beauty Boxes in store, but they are always available online! Click to order the latest beauty box from Target!
When do Target Beauty Boxes come out?
Typically the beauty box is available on the first day of the month. However, Target hasn’t released a beauty box in recent months. However, Target has released a collection of “Best of Beauty” boxes that you can get now and through the holidays!
Are the contents a surprise?
Not really. The items are listed on the website when you order. We usually try not to look so the boxes are a surprise, but going forward we won’t do this. If we’re not excited about the stuff in the box, we won’t order. Occasionally there are more items listed than will be in each box, so there’s no way to know exactly what you’ll get, in what colors or scents, but you can get a good idea.
What other beauty subscriptions should I try?
While not strictly a beauty box, this lifestyle box has been a longtime favorite of ours. You’ll find beauty, home, fitness, fashion and more in each box. Members have the chance to customize certain parts of their box, and they have great sales throughout the year featuring previous items, so you can pick up your favorites at a steal
Okay, maybe this doesn’t seem as exciting as a beauty box, but that just tells us that you haven’t tried these razors yet. Billie razors are the best Megan has tried. The true magic is in the magnetic mount that sticks to the wall of your shower. At $9 for your first order and $9 for four refills, sent on a schedule you choose, we think you’ll love them too.
