Target Beauty Box |April 2017


This is the first target box I have ever gotten. There are two different options and I decided to get both! As the second has not arrived yet, we are going to focus on the basic beauty box.

This box retail tails anywhere from $5-$10 monthly, it is not subscription, so you have to keep your eyes open for it. It also comes with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items at Target!

eb5 Facial Cleanser

This Cleanser is soap free, interesting. It is a non-foaming formula that exfoliates the skin with lactic acid and nourishes with oat protein and vitamins E & B5.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser

This is a daily Cleanser with ceramide-3 and prebiotic Thermal Water gently cleanses with-out leaving pore clogging residue. This is actually the first of their products I will be trying.

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat

2-in-1 strenghting formula preps and protects with nylon and pro-vitamin B 5 for long lasting, chip resistant nails. I do not use non CF brands, so I will be passing this along. My mom loves this stuff, so it’ll be a nice little gift.

Hask Argon Oil Reparing Deep Conditioner

Hydrating argon oil works to restore and soften dry, damaged, chemically treated and over processed hair.

I recently just chopped off 5 inches of dried, ruined hair, so I am obsessing over any hair repairing products right now, hoping it’ll help my short hair grow faster!

Dr.Teals Lavender Foaming Bath

This just happens to be my favorite bubble bath. Having a sample size is going to be fantastic for travel! Or if I run out of my full size and can’t go get more when I do.

Rimmel Color Percise White Eyeliner

Though this seems like a fantastic liner, it is not a cruelty free product, so I will be passing it along. What a shame, it seems nice.

Banana Boat Dry Balance 30 SPF Sunscreen

Starting in the next few weeks, it will officially be lake season here! I spend a ton of time boating and stuff, so this will come in handy. I burn like crazy, so I will take what ever screen I can get.

Over all

I think this box is way worth the money! I will have to keep my eyes open next month for the May box!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! What do you think of the Target Beauty Box? Comment below!

Vegan Cuts Make-Up Box | Spring 2017


*This box is quarterly, and retails for $39.95. You can sign up, here!*

Video Unboxing!

This months theme is Spring Paradise, and at the risk of sounding extremely cheesy, this box was paradise to me!!


Jersey Shore Cosmetics My Lash Secret Eyelash Curler $25

This is the bonus tool for this month. When I saw this in the box I was ecstatic! I was going to use Ipsy points to get it, but it sold out by the time I got around to it. I have tried it, and it is amazing! I really like curling my lashes, I think I notice a difference. I know some people do not believe they see one.


Han Skin Care Cosmetics “Romance” Eyeshadow $13

I love this shade. It is stunning. You can use it easily alone, or incorporate it in to a look! I think I am going to depot mine.


I am kind of addicted to it.


Beauty Without Cruelty Full Volume Mascara “Black” $26

I have been wanting to try this mascara for quite a while, but have never brought my self to purchase it. I am really excited to try this and will update y’all once I actually get around to using it. But, I am super pumped to finally have it!


Elate Cosmetics Moisturizing Lip Gloss “Divine” $19

This is the product this month that you got to select your shade. I went for a peachy coral shade, and I love it. It is beautiful over peachy nude lipsticks and on its own. I actually really enjoy this formula. It is not too sticky, but it lasts quite a while.

I will have an individual post on this gloss.


Manna Kadar Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlight Duo $21

The last product is the only one I am a little iffy about. The shape and size of the pans makes it hard to accurately get a brush in it. To me it is just a hassle. The shades are quite nice though.


There is no way the bronzer will work on my fair skin, but I bet it is going to make a beautiful shadow. The highlight on the other had is a fantastic shade for me. I have used it, though it took great patience, and it looked fabulous. I may or may not do a review on this as well!

That is all for the spring box! What did you get in yours? Have you tried any of these products, what did you think? Comment below!

Boxy Charm Un-Boxing | March 2017


Update video!

Sorry it is a little late! I am yet again sick, so finding the motivation to do things is hard.

This months Box Charm is themed “Creepy Cute”. I really like this theme, I am  keeping this card, it is too cute to toss! I kind of like that it is something creepy themed, in March. Creepy does not have to live in October people!


Smash Box Photo Finish Primer $16:

The first thing is this travel size of the Smash Box Photo Finish primer. I like this primer, and have used up full sizes before. I no longer purchase from Smash Box though, so I have not had it in a while. I am for sure going to be using this, unless a friend sees it and decides they want it first. I have plenty of primers by companies with cruelty free parent companies.

Crown Brush SS023 Jumbo Kabuki Fan Brush $18.99

When I first opened the box, I thought I would never use this brush. But, I love it! It works perfect for highlighting and for kicking off bake and extra powder. I have used it almost everyday since I got it.


Naked Cosmetics Urban Rustic Palette $39.99

I thought Naked Cosmetics only made crazy expensive pigments, apparently they make really expensive trios as well. In all actuality, the quality of these shadows are amazing. I do not see myself wearing them alone, the three together, but I do see myself reaching for this as a little accent palette.


Ignore my nails please, I am the worst at keeping them maintained.

The shades swatch amazingly, I am very excited to use them!


RealHer LadyLove Matte Liquid Lip Stick $15

The shade I got is “I Will Succeed”. It is a peachy nude shade, which is stunning. I have a separate post coming up shortly on this product so I am not going to say much. Keep your eyes peeled if you are interested in my thoughts on this and the next product!

RealHer Expert Advice Lip Liner $12.50

I received the shade “I am UN-Stoppable”. It is also a peachy nude, like the liquid lip, but a little darker. As I said above, I am going to have a post coming up soon with this in it, so I will save my thoughts for that!


That is it for this months box. Way worth the $20ish it costs! What did you get this months? Tried any of these products, what did you think? Comment below!
