Hey dollfaces! A couple of weeks ago, I received the first edition of Beauty Box by Target! Funny thing is, this popped up in the mail and I completely forgot I even bought this and had to deal with a million death stares from my fiance after I swore I didn't buy anything from Target. The box itself is for free but you have to pay shipping which was $5. That's where they get ya! Also, this box took 6-8 weeks to get to me (hence me forgetting). The card that comes inside the box says that Target will be offering this monthly with brands you've heard of and some you haven't plus a special offer. Very exciting!

The Box: Love it. I always say this but I'm a sucker for awesome packaging. This box comes with a cute "slip" over a plain white box with the signature Target bullseye made to look like it was drawn all over it in blush, mascara, eyeshadow and lipstick.

Sneak peek of what's inside!

Gilette Venus & Olay Razor Pack in Sugarberry
This is exactly why I love beauty boxes like this! I've never used Gilette razors before. This razor has five blades and comes with this yummy Sugarberry scented Olay "Moisture Bar" built into it to keep your skin looking and feeling smooth. I love, love, love this scent! I've only used this about four times but the razor hasn't become dull yet nor the "moisture bar" fallen off or used up. A+!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Sweet Tart-An
Meh. Love Sally Hansen products but not these. They never work for me and I always seem to mess them up or they don't stick for me. I don't really like the argyle print either. Hey, you win some, you lose some.

Fekkai Glossing Cream
Speaking of winning some. Fekkai is in the box!? Fekkai Glossing Cream adds shine and keeps your hair from getting cray cray with frizz. Unfortunately, the price tag ($25 for 4oz.) keeps me from buying anything more than a deluxe sample size ($9) but this was a happy surprise in the box. My mom loves Fekkai's Glossing System and fought me over this. I won.

L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream & La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Samples
First off, thank you Target for actually reading the questionaire you give us to fill out  asking us what are skintone, hair color, etc. is and sending me a B.B. cream that actually matches my skintone. You guys are awesome! Anywho, this B.B. cream boasts it hydrates, primes, perfects and corrects. I just really thought it was cool that it came out white and once you started rubbing it in did it become your skin color. Talk about magic, guys. As for the La Roche sample, thankfully, I don't really have any acne so I didn't get to try the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Dual Action Acne Treatment sample but it says it visibly reduces acne in three days which is a tall order to fill. Someone let me know if this works!

Overall: This box is definitely worth the $5 shipping. I know that the beauty bags that Target puts out every once in a while go really quick and if I can remember correctly, there was a rush on these boxes too! Edit: Just checked. This box was available to the first 20,000 people. I feel this box is exactly what Target was talking about with some brands you know mixed with some brands you don't. I'll definitely be in the rush to buy another box!
