simply radiant target box
We’ll start with the “Simply Radiant” Target Beauty Box

Everything that we received in this Target Beauty Box
Not bad! And we’re pumped about the mascara!
Our box insert
Dessange Balancing Shampoo
dessange balancing shampoo
Wow! This pays for the whole box and we love the bottle! Made with green clay this natural shampoo purifies and cleanses. To be honest this is the first time that we’ve ever heard of this brand but we’re excited to try this out
Wet n Wild Cat Eye Mascara
wet n wild cat eye mascara
We’ve been wanting to try this for so long! The fan shaped wand “adds length and drama” and we can get on board with that. Plus, we’re suckers for this pretty tube!
Aquaphor Healing Ointment
aquaphor healing ointment
Boy oh boy – if we had a dollar for each one of these we have floating around…. we’d have about twenty dollars (badump dah!). Not exciting but still useful in the cold winter months and on the little ones
Acure Facial Cleansing Gel
acure facial cleansing gel
We love to receive face washes in these deluxe sample sizes. We’ve received Acure products in Target Boxes before and like them but aren’t sure about this because it says combo to oily skin and our skin is NOT. 
Derma e Firming DMAE Eye Lift
derma e lifting cream
Almost all of the Target Boxes contains a Derma e item. This instalift is a break from the usual items and we’ve started incorporating eye creams into our beauty routine so we are happy to have received this
L’Oreal Paris Color Vibrancy Shampoo & Conditioner
We received these samples of the Color Vibrancy shampoo and conditioner from L’Oreal. It smells so fruity and good! We’ll try these out as we have highlights!

fresh and fabulous subscription box
Our first glimpse inside the “Fresh and Fabulous” Target Beauty Box
Our box insert
Umberto Lifting Powder
umberto lifting powder
This lifting powder adds height and texture. We don’t usually use these because dry shampoos tend to make our hair drier yet but we’ll find someone to love this – we’re sure!
Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner
dove regenerative nourishment
We received these two Dove Shampoo and Conditioners. These are for damaged and over processed hair. Definitely think these will be great for us (if of course they work). They smell great as well just like all Dove products
Garnier Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer
garnier clearly brighter
We actually own the full sized version of this product and while we like it and think the formula is nice we don’t necessarily think it is for us. This is a really lightweight barrier moisturizer and would be great for people with normal skin that are seeking an all around day cream
Sweet Spot On the Go Wipettes
sweet spot on the go wipettes
Am we the only ones that were a little bit weirded out by not only their presence in the box (We didn’t think we were that tight with Target!) but also the name… it kind of is skeevy? Anyone? Are we alone here? We get that they’re useful and this is the “fresh” box but we just feel like being prudish on this one!
Tom’s of Maine Peppermint Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste
tom's of main
Tom’s is the hipster’s toothpaste. It’s expensive, all natural, and well that’s all we can think of. Nevertheless we actually really like it! Glad to see that we received it in our Target Box
NYX Butter Lipstick
nyx butter lipstick
This alone is almost the entire cost of the box. We wouldn’t have picked this color but are so impressed with this lipstick we’re going to have to try some more the the butter lipstick shades!
The creamy formula is super pigmented to give you a rich lasting color!

So in summary

While we liked both of the Target Beauty Boxes this month there was a clear and definite winner in our eyes and that was the “Simply Radiant” Box. This may be one of our favorite Target Boxes of all time! It was a great assortment and had a great dollar value as well. We are most excited to try out the Wet ‘n’ Wild Mascara
