Target April 2016 Beauty Box Update: Preview and Expected On-Sale Date

PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to receive text alerts from me, including things like when this beauty box goes live, click here for more info.

UPDATE: It's now live! Click HERE to grab it!

I wish I could thank each and every one of you for the following tips, but wow! The response to my last post has been overwhelming (in the best way possible) so THANK YOU, everyone, for the great info and updates.

This box will include:
  • Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes (my holy grail towelettes!)
  • Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Sunscreen SPF 30+
  • CeraVe Healing Ointment (new product)
  • Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask
  • Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation
  • CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick
  • Marlowe No. 022 Body Butter
  • Pantene Air Spray Hairspray
  • Not pictured: coupon for $3 off any $15 beauty purchase at Target or Target.com (these boxes always come with this coupon, so I would be very surprised if we didn't see one this time around)

As always, we will not know which items are full-size and which items are travel/deluxe samples until the box actually releases. But based on previous boxes, I'm pretty certain that at least the lipstick will be full-size. And we'll probably get one Laneige mask (full-size box contains 5 masks). Also, in a previous Target Beauty Box, they gave us a full-size pack of Simple Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes (25 count), so we MAY see a full-size pack in this box. For color cosmetics, Target has never once allowed customers to select their shades in these boxes; you just get what you get. I expect it to be this way once again for this new box.

Based on the amount of items and the items themselves, I'm guessing that this box will retail for $7 + free shipping (plus an extra 5% off if you have a Target REDcard). It could go for $5 + free shipping though (the price of these boxes seems to regularly waiver between $5-$7 these days, and always free shipping). Or Target could surprise us and give us more full-size products, in which case they could increase the price to $10 or so. We just won't know until it's live, but my best guess is that it will be $7.

This box is most likely going to go on sale on Monday, April 4th. I post here on the blog and on all of my social media channels the moment I find out these boxes are live (I've been doing this for years now). Lately, these boxes have been going live at Midnight Pacific, so I will stay up the night of April 3rd (Sunday night) and watch out for it and post when it's available. If YOU can't stay up that night, I highly suggest that you CLICK THIS LINK as early as possible on the morning of April 4th to see if it's live (or check my blog or social media). These boxes are becoming incredibly popular, which means they're selling out more quickly than they ever did before (the March box sold out by 10AM Pacific on the day it went live, which was a new record).

I hope that helps, and thanks again to everyone who took the time to update me about this one. I truly appreciate it!

    2. That's exactly what I was thinking! A Nouveau Cheap App would change the world!

  2. I really hope either they have mini testers for colors sent (with an additional coupon for maybelline) or they give us a little bit of options when it comes to the color (maybe like 5 preselected shades we can choose from or so) because I would be really disappointed if I got a full size of a shade I couldn't use.

    1. I'm guessing it will be a card with a few shade samples (pods or peelies). :)

  3. I already have the foundation, Simple wipes, and Cerave. I got the simple wipes in the Allure beauty box and they are awesome!!! I tried their wipes years ago and was unimpressed so I guess they improved since then. They are so gentle yet super-effective and I love that they are textured (but not in an abrasive way). I can see why they're your fave! I will probably try to snag this box even though I have some of the items already, the boxes are always such a great deal (loved the Feb. box) especially with the $3 off beauty coupon -- which I thought I lost last time and then finally found it after it had expired - argh! Thanks for always keeping us posted, G!

    1. You're so welcome! How do you like the ointment? I've been meaning to try it!

  4. OOO! I hope that Maybelline Foundation is full sized! I will have to get that!

    1. I'm guessing it will be a sample, but I've been wrong many times about these boxes! Lol!

  5. The Simple cleansing wipes are one of my HG items too! They seem to be one of very few that don't burn my face and leave it all red and stinging. I always wait until they're BOGO 1/2 off at Ulta and then buy 2 two-packs (with a coupon of course!).

  7. Hi all! I just found you and so far I love when I'm seeing :-) I've been checking target beauty box all day because I normally miss it. (Okay I got it once and I fell in love). instead of getting the expected items that will be in the new box I'm getting a blank page when I type in beauty box? What does that mean?

    1. Thank you! And the reason you're coming you blank is probably because you're not clicking the Beauty Box link in my blog post. Please click the preview link I included near the top of this post and you'll see where the box will be available when it's live.

  8. I work at target so they actually gave samples of the cerave to the guest at the store on a weekend. I grabbed one and tried it on my lips just because I didn't know what else to use it for lol it wasn't the best, but maybe it will work out for something else. The sample I got was 0.085 Oz, so I'm sure that's what's going to be in the box

    1. Thank you so much for the sample size info! I'm sorry to hear it didn't work on your lips, but hopefully it will work on dry patches on the rest of the body (I'm hoping it works for my elbows and heels in particular). :)

  9. I almost can guarantee the foundation will just be samples with a few different shades or shades. I can't imagine them sending full sizes of foundation when they don't know our shades.

  10. I'm so ready. The last five or so times I didn't have time to check until late in the day that it was offered. That was sad.

  11. I haven't been too interested in these boxes for quite some time but I'm happy with what they're offering in this one! :)

  12. The link says sold out. Did we miss it already?
