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? 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.
Let’s talk about the Target Beauty Box!

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 Target 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 not it’s one box per person.
Is it a subscription box?
Nope. You’ll have to order each box monthly.
Where can I buy the Target Beauty Box?

When is the Target Beauty Box released?
Typically the beauty box is available on the first day of the month.
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.
Anything else I should know?
Target is a big fan of sending the same products repeatedly. Jergens, Derma E and Laneige are regular features in the box. These are great products, but we order these boxes for new stuff! This is why we’ll check out the contents of the box before we order in the future. Sometimes there are some gems in those boxes!
Did you get the most recent box?
