Target March Beauty Box

If you happened to notice a couple weeks back in my Wednesday  series post, I included a little sneak peak of an item I received in Target’s March box. I am completely hooked on Target Beauty Boxes not only for the great quality of usable products, but also for the great value in those products. The Target Beauty Box comes out *usually* at the end of the month and goes on sale the first day or so of the new month. I say usually because it’s not always the same, plus it’s not a subscription service.

I was almost crying (ok not really… but I could have,) when the end of March was here and there were no previews for a new box. I was like “how can you do this to me Target??!!” Fists in air and all. Then this glorious morning I woke up to see they had updated their products which meant… Beauty Box on the way!! So check out their site (should be a direct link to the beauty box page, if not just type in beauty box in the search field) and see if anything interests you. Also stay tuned… I will announce on my Twitter when they go live! With that said it will probably be very early in the morning and they usually sell out by early afternoon.

Target Beauty Box for March

 

Although it was smaller than the last Target box, it was by no means shabby. Six out of the eight samples will be, and have been, used. March’s Beauty Box was only $5. Five dollars! You can not beat that. Considering how most beauty subscription boxes are $10 and up. Not to mention they usually include a $3 off coupon for future beauty purchases.

Influenster Perks

What’s Influenster you say? Why it’s just a little ‘ole website that sends you free samples to test out for your honest feedback! I had joined a long time ago and never really got into it. When I realized I was missing out on some pretty cool samples, I decided to give it a go one more time.

L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

 

I just recently tested out L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil Curls shampoo, conditioner, and treatment mask. I even uploaded my first YouTube video which I talk about it and show off my transformed hair! Although I want to cringe at my extreme awkwardness (you think being an actress I would be comfortable in front of a camera,) I decided to share the video anyway. Mostly so I can get all of your feedback on what not to do in the future! If you choose to watch me embarrass myself, then I’ll include the link of my hair magic below!

Target March Beauty Box

It’s that time of the month again! No not the unwanted kind, but the wonderful time when the Target Beauty Box goes on sale. And it’s always *much wanted* so to speak, that it sells out very quickly. The site is up and ready for purchase (which is only $5!) and I’ve included a handy link that directs you right to Target’s website!

Click here to bring you directly to the Beauty Box page!

Want a quick glance at the products?

 

It seems, like the last time, you will get a randomly chosen color of nail polish and just one of the offered face masks. You can always check out my last Target box review here!

What do you think? Will you be picking one up before they sell out?

Birchbox Date Night Review

IMG_6895 (2) wm

When they say first impressions are everything, it’s true. I wanted to love this box so much, but in reality I can’t.

Let me start by saying, I don’t want to bash a company and make it seem horrible. However I do want to share my experience to help others decide if they want to venture into a Birchbox subscription or not. For any newbies to the subscription box scene, Birchbox is a $10 a month subscription that sends you four to six sample (usually deluxe) sizes of assorted beauty products. They have their own shop which includes makeup, skincare, haircare and more, where you get rewarded for purchases. Plus they also offer lifestyle items such as anything from headphones to picture frames. For more information, a sneak peek at the March box, and all of their add ons you can check it out here!

Birchbox Date Night information card

The date night box caught my interest right off the bat, considering I wanted to try three out of the five samples so badly. I could have left it up to chance but I already knew I’d be happy with this box so I thought why not?

It included samples of:

  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet
  • Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator
  • Whish Renewing Mud Mask
  • Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
  • Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence fragrance sample

I was very interested in the first three, but not crazy about getting a hair and perfume product. I still thought three out of five would be great instead of leaving it all up to chance!
