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 2022.
2022 UPDATE: Hi fellow Target lovers! We know you love the Beauty Box as much as we do. At this time, it looks like Target has pivoted to a new model called Target Beauty Capsule. These are a slightly larger version of the original beauty box we once knew and loved.
The Beauty Box is now Target Beauty Capsule
Target hasn’t released a box since July 2020.
As of March 2022, there are currently four Target Beauty Capsules available on Target.com which retail for $14.99-$15 and contain between seven and nine items. The Target Beauty Capsule appears to be an upgraded version of the previous beauty box and well-worth the upgraded price tag.
- Glow So Bright Beauty Sample Box Gift Set ($14.99)
- Target Beauty Capsule Best Night Gift Set ($14.99)
- “The Grooming Kit” Best of Box Gift Set ($15)
- Black-Owned or Founded Beauty Beauty Sample Box Gift Set ($14.99)

What Was a Target Beauty Box?
At one time, these Beauty Boxes were so popular that they would sell out on the same day they became available online.
The Beauty Box was a monthly box that contains anywhere from five and seven beauty samples 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 ended up fluctuating 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 name items included in any given box. Shipping is free and take 5% off with your REDcard!
Was the Beauty Box from Target a Subscription Box?
Nope. You had to order it each month.
Are These Available in Target stores?
Beauty Boxes are no longer available. Target Beauty Capsules – a new, re-imagined version, are available to ship online. Occasionally you can find them in store, but they are always available online.
When Do Boxes Come Out?
The original beauty box was released on the first day of each new month. The new Beauty Capsules change out often but it doesn’t seem to follow any particular schedule.
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.
