Ah, Target — the heavenly shopping oasis where you can pick up a new pair of distressed denim shorts, some La Croix, and your favorite mascara all at once. Now, Target is making our lives even easier by selling super affordable beauty boxes in store. How much is the Target Beauty Box? You'll have enough cash to buy several and also snag some dish soap, an Apple watch, and dog food while you're at it.
Beauty boxes are a fantastic way to discover new brands and products without playing cosmetic roulette on a new and unknown full-size item. You can easily try dozens of new products, taking note of your faves to revisit at a later date. The best part of the beauty box experience is the price. If you don't love one of your goodies, it's no sweat. Simply gift it to a friend who'd be a better fit, or trash it. It's your money and your prerogative.
However, in the age of instant gratification, waiting patiently by your mailbox for a new box of cosmetics to arrive is... difficult to say the least. When you're having a really bad day and want to do a new mask while you sip a glass of wine, you want that mask now, not a week from now.
Luckily, Target's boxes are available for purchase whenever you want them (as long as your nearest Target is open, of course). No subscription is necessary. Plus, with five different box options, there's something for every single beauty lover out there.
Define and Shine Beauty Box
If you have natural curls, the Define and Shine Box ($7, Target) will quench your hair's thirst. This box contains trial size versions of the Jane Carter Curls To Go Un-Tangle Me ($11, Target) Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel ($16, Target), Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter ($17, Target), TGIN Honey Hair Mask ($14, Target), Mielle Organic Detanlging Co-Wash ($12, Target), and Mielle Organix Babassu Oil Mint Deep Conditioner ($14, Target).

Wakeup And Makeup Beauty Box
If you have trouble getting out of bed as the sun rises, then the Wakeup and Makeup Box ($7, Target) is sure to stop your snoozing each morning.

All The Masks Beauty Box
Even though I've pretty much tried all the masks, I would still purchase the All The Masks Beauty Box ($7, Target). This box comes with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Gel Mask ($3, Target), the Yes To Carrots and Kale Single Use Paper Mask ($3, Target), the Masque Bar and Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask ($4, Target), the St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Sheet Mask ($3, Target), and the Que Bella Multi Mask Trio ($3, Target). If you're a sheet mask fiend, save yourself some coin by going the beauty box route.
Hold on to your chai lattes, everyone: You can snag each and every box in the line for only $7. That's right — for the price of a mere mascara you can take home a whole beauty box full of goodies. Most of the boxes contain at least one full-size product that's worth the price of the entire box itself! Plus, if you fall in love with any of the products, the boxes also come with coupons to get you dollars off the future purchases of your faves.
If you want new cosmetics and you want them now, then Target is the place to go. For $7, you can take home a new subscription-free beauty box and indulge in some self pampering. Go on, you deserve it.
