Target Beauty Box NOV. 2017| Hello Pause Button

What it is: A monthly box of drugstore beauty goodies, that IS NOT a subscription. So keep your eyes peeled for it!

Cost: $5-$10

Novembers’ Box is all about tuning out of the hustle and bustle of the world and relaxing, which is something that is very hard to do during the holiday season.

*this is not a CF Box. Any non-CF products I will be passing on.*

*The card in the box does not contain prices but, does contain a $3 off $15 beauty purchase at target coupon.*

Dove Derma 2-in-1 Ant-dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner

“All in one scalp formula effectively tackles dandruff while renewing scalp and hairs natural moisture.”

Sadly, Dove is not CF. I would have loved to try this product out. I have a really itchy scalp and would have actually gotten a lot of use out of this product. I will be passing it along to someone who will use it.

Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream

“Quickly absorbing Cream is loaded with Shea butter, allantoin and natural oils to relieve dry, cracked hands.”

Now, this is a CF! I’m excited to try a Skinfix product, they have been on my radar for a bit now. As the weather gets colder, my hands get more dry and painful. I am sure this cream will come in handy..

There is no discernible scent, but it feels fantastic.

Missha Snail Hydro-Gel Mask

“Snail mucin and baobab tree extract work to hydrate, heal and soothe the skin while helping to prevent aging.”

I am actually unaware of Misshas’ CF stance, but I am going to take a wild guess and say, NO. 🐌Going to be passing this mask along to my mom.

Tom’s of Maine Coconut Bar Soap

“Triple milled soap formulated to be gentle on skin and help maintain skins natural moisture.”

Not only is this brand CF, but it is pretty clean as well. It is a brand I know and love. I also REALLY love soap, so soap is always welcome.

Maybelline Great Lash mini

“Cult classic mascara features a lash doubling formula and volume increasing brush.”

Even before I went CF, great lash was not one of my favorite mascaras. This little dude is for sure being passed on. But, can we appreciate how cute it is in tiny packaging!?

La Roche-Posay Facial Cleanser

“Hydrating Cream gently cleanses and helps restore skins natural moisture, pH and protective barrier.”

I am not 100% sure if this brand is CF. If it is, I will be trying this cleanser. It seems like it will be really Hydrating and gentle.

That is all for this months Box! Not much I can use, but for the typical non-CF consumer the bargain of the box is worth $7. Not for me though. I am probably skipping the next Target Box.

Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Hello SunshineΒ 

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when it goes up! This one was priced at $7*

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Sunscreen 

It’s summer time, so sunseeen is a must have. I like the Hawaiian tropic brand, everything always smells so good and this Island sport is not exception! 

John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray

I have have that is naturally pretty wavy, so I love using Sea Salt spray in my hair! I used to love the Josh Frieda Blonde line, but quite because it is not cruelty free. 

Masque Bar Soothing Sheet Mask

I am with out a doubt addicted t sheet masks. This one is meant to hydrate and smooth skin. Giving you a healthier complexion.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Treatment 

This is a cult favorite product that I have yet to try. Aussie is not cruelty free, but it is something I have always wanted to try. This is a fantastic travel size for a deep conditioner as well.

Schick Hydro Silk Women’s Razor

With the price of those box, you are essentially paying a dollar for this razor… hell yeah! Razors can be super expensive.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish “Island Coral”

This isn’t exactly my color, but you can’t beat a full sized nail polish. I will probably paaa this onto a friend.

NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer “medium”

A NYX Concealer for essentially $1!! 

This one is supposed to be infused with coconut oil, and be water proof! I really hope it is light enough for me. I doubt it though, I am fairly fair. 

That’s it for this months Box, I can’t wait to see what next months holds!

Thank you so much for reading and I really hope you enjoyed this post!

Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Fathers Day Edition

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when released, this one way $7.*

Father’s Day is coming up, so Target took the opportunity to also offer a men’s box this month. It contains 7 items. That makes everything $1 an item! 

Nivea Men Creme

This is something my SO has tried before and loves. He hates buying stuff like this though, because my grandmother stock piles with coupons and he gets alternatives through that. 

Specifically designed for men, this multipurpose Creme moisturizes without feeling greasy. 

Olivina Men All-in-1 Body Wash

The scent included is Burbon Ceder. I am personally in love with the scent. My SO likes it as well. It is warm and earthy, but not overly masculine. I would use it, honestly! It’s a great travel size as well. 

Schick Hydro 5 Men’s Razor

Razors are expensive. That’s all I have to say. 

Dove Men + Care Elemnets Deodorant 

I think this travel deotorant is larger than the travel Sizes at the store! It is scented with sage a smells great. It claims to protect from odor and sweat for 48 hours. I’m sure he will get use out of this.

Colgate Optic White Radiant Tooth Paste

This is supposed to be a fantastic tooth paste. Who can’t use tooth paste!? 

Everything aside, I have already stole this from him and started using it πŸ˜‚ Swiped!!

Yes to Natural Men Cleansing Wipes

We do a lot of hiking and camping during the summers. I am sure these will ended up used during a trip. I have seen a lot of products like this meant for men lately! 

AXE Adrenaline Cool Charge Body Wash

I think my SO will enjoy this, but I really dislike mint. It is mint and ginger scented. It is a nice travel size though.

This post was a tiny bit different! I hope you enjoyed it, thank you for reading!!

Target Beauty Box Natural Edition | April 2017

When I saw that Target had a natural beauty box, there was no way I was passing it up.

It retails for around $7, but it is not a subscription, you have to jump on it as soon as it hits there site! 

Let’s get into this box, because I am really happy with it!

Burts Bees White Tea Facial Cleansing Towelettes

It has been years since I have used these, but I remember loving them. 

Infused with white tea extract, calming cucumber, and aloe to gently remove dirt, oil, and makeup for all skin types. 

Juice organic Deluxe Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner 

Who doesn’t love travel hair care. I think it is literally my favorite thing. I have been curious about this brand, so this is a great way to test it out.

Volumizes, thickens and promotes healthy hair growth with passion fruit, soy protein and barely protein for fuller hair.

This is a brand I already enjoy for oral care- and Josiah does as well, but we have never tried their whitening formula.

Whitens teeth naturally; free of dyes, artificial sweeteners or flavors, microbeads, preservatives and gluten.

SheaMoisture Kukui Nut Facial Cream Cleanser and Face and Neck Cream

This is a brand I have fallen quickly in love with, anything I get to try from them is exciting for me.

Blend of kukui nut and grape seed oils delivers youth infusing vitamins and antioxidants to help protect against aging.

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifiying Charcoal Mud Mask

Literally my favorite mask. I can ALWAYS use a back up or 5..

Made with charcoal to naturally draw out impurities, help fight and prevent acne, and removes excess oil.

Acure Pore Clarifiying Red Clay Scrub

This is a new product to me, but a brand I really enjoy.

Moroccan red clay draws out impurities with black jojoba beads gently exfoliate to reveal clearer, smoother skin.

Raw Sugar Lemon Sugar Body Wash

Holy hell this stuff smells amazing!!!!

Processed with cold press technology and packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and essential oils to cleanse and nourish skin.

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!
