Target releases seasonal beauty boxes. These are not subscription boxes and always sell out the day they release, usually in the first few hours. A new box released today and is still available. Shipping is always free, and the box contents announce as soon as the box goes on sale. Most items are sample sized, but there is almost always a full-size item or two inside. Value is usually at least triple the cost. The only variation in box content is on color items. Unless the color is specifically stated in the description, colors will vary. Boxes usually range in price from $5 to $10. The Target August Beauty Box: Back to College retails for $7.
I am actually passing on the Target August Beauty Box: Back to College, so I will not review this or edit in the pictures and products later. Even though this has some great items, like the Crest White Strips and my favorite deodorant, I am actually stocked in both those areas.
I am using Target’s exact words below this point, because I am not buying this box (so I will not put this in my own words).
Score an A+ in beauty with the Back-to-College Target Beauty Box. A $30+ value for just $7, this handpicked collection of must-have beauty products will get you ready to hit campus looking and feeling your best. Test them out and tell us what you think. If you love them as much as we do, find the full-size versions at Target.com/beautybox.

Remember to check all Target offers before placing an online order, but these boxes always sell out fast. You get free shipping when you order this, so it is perfect timing to add an extra item you may need. Look as quickly as possible. Boxes release almost every month and although the exact release dates vary, the first Monday of each month is the most common release. If you want to make sure you get the next box, subscribe to Target emails and look at them when they hit your inbox. Of course, I will always alert you on the front page when they come back in stock as well.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
