Target May 2016 Beauty Box Sneak Peek (On Sale Monday, 5/2)


I've been checking the Target site every morning this week, awaiting the next sneak peek. And it looks like I'm not the only one, since I received a ton of tips this morning here on the blog and on social media (thank you!!) letting me know that the new sneak peek is now up!

PLEASE READ: the May Target Beauty Box should go live HERE on Monday, 5/2. It is NOT on sale yet, and the message on the site always says that it's "sold out" until the new box goes live. For some reason every time I post sneak peeks, I receive a lot of comments stating that "it's already sold out!" No no no. It's not even available yet! I just want to make that clear. These boxes tend to go live at around Midnight Pacific (so that would be Sunday night), and I will post here on the blog and on all of my social media channels the moment I know it's live. If you'd like to know the moment I post, I suggest signing up for my text alerts HERE. These boxes have been selling out QUICKLY lately since they're gaining more and more popularity; the April box sold out at around 9AM Pacific on the day it went live. So if you're interested in this one,, you need to jump on it ASAP.

Here's your sneak peek:


  • Andalou Naturals Resveratrol Q10 Night Repair Cream
  • Clairol Hair Food Sulfate Free Kiwi Dry Shampoo
  • Burt's Bees Cleasning Oil with Coconut and Argan Oils for Normal to Dry Skin
  • Derma E Firming DMAE Moisturizer with Alpha Lipoic and C- Ester 


  • L'Oréal® Paris Colour Riche Le Matte Lip Pen
  • L'Oréal® Paris Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Pen
  • Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream
  • CeraVe Unscented Foaming Facial Cleanser
  • L'Oreal® Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes in Medium Natural Tan

As always, we will not know which items are full-size and which items are travel size or foil packets until the box actually goes live. This box should either be $5 or $7 based on the price of the previous Target beauty boxes, and shipping is ALWAYS free with the Target Beauty Boxes.

It's interesting that Target listed both the Le Matte and La Lacque lip pencils here. I don't know if that means we're getting one of each or if it will be an either/or situation (I'm guessing it will be the latter). Either way, I'm 99.9999% sure that this will be a full-size lip pencil since Target always tends to give us full-size lip colors in their boxes. 

This looks like a great box containing some products that I have already been wanting to try (I can't wait to try the Burt's Bees cleansing oil--I hope it's a mini bottle and not a foil packet, but hey, I'll take what I can get!). What do YOU think? Will you be setting your reminders and jumping on this one, or is this a pass for you?

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to let me know that the sneak-peek was live this morning. I really appreciate it!

  1. Ooohhh nice box! I'm hoping the dry shampoo is full sized, I can never have too much dry shampoo :)

    1. I hear ya on that one! I hope it's full size too, like the Hair Food mask a while back. :)

    2. The one shown is the travel size and they also included the travel size of the same product in a previous box so I'm guessing it won't be full size. I'm thinking the lippy and *maybe* the tanning towelettes will be full size.

  2. Thanks for posting this! I, too, have been checking the Target site daily, so this is exciting! I'm definitely going to get this box, it looks awesome!

  3. Thanks G. I'm excited for this box too! And with your text updates I'm sure I'll get a box this month just like last month. Can we use the coupon we received in our April box?

    1. Aaaah, I'm SO glad the text updates are working well for you. Yay!!! :)

      Check the expiration on that coupon. I already used mine so I can't check but if it's still valid by Monday it SHOULD work. The dates on those coupons usually expire before the next box though.

    2. But you have to spend $15 , so I'm guessing most people who use this get like 3 boxes or something?

  6. This looks like an amazing box! I am guessing it will be $7 based on the previous box, but we'll see soon! I adore the La Lacques.

    1. Thank you for pointing out that the price is sometimes $7 (not $7.99 like I originally wrote! I don't know why I added the .99 to the prices in my post but I just fixed that)!

  7. I was disappointed with the unusable (for me) lip color last month. Does Target usually choose a neutral like that? I got in on the May Sephora box so I'll probably skip this Target... Really haven't used anything from last month except the store coupon.

    1. No, it's pretty random. They usually offer a few shades, like pinks, neutrals, and reds, but it's up to chance as to which one you will receive.

    3. Mine was an extremely bright purple. Mostly unusable clown color. I do love my bright pinks and reds but this was a strange color. I envy your neutral! :p

  8. This is the first box I've been really excited about! I hope I can buy it!

  9. I looked up the Target Box and I found this http://www.target.com/p/target-beauty-box-summer-40-value/-/A-17366779

    Could this be the Summer 2016?

    1. DEFINITELY not. That box was from last summer. Summer 2015. I remember it because I posted about it at that time and also purchased it. :)

      I really wish Target would remove those old listings, because it causes confusion for people who are new to these boxes. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

    2. Well thank goodness we have you two always keep us up-to-date! Very much appreciated

  10. The Burts Bees cleansing oil does come in a 1 oz trial size bottle - I received one in an ipsy bag a couple months back. It is THE STUFF for dissolving/removing eye makeup as long as I wash it off with soap afterwards. I have oily skin and leaving oily anything on it is a recipe for major yuck. So my guess is that this will also be the 1 oz bottle, but hey, it's just a guess!

    1. Thanks for that info, girlie! I bet that's exactly what we'll get! :)

  11. Yes, please! I'll be getting this one for sure. I've wanted to try the lipsticks (either one) and the CeraVe cleanser. I already like the dry shampoo - got that in a previous target box. It smells wonderful. All the rest look like great items, too. I've tried the tanning towel, and they work well - great for travel.

  12. Does anyone know are these available in store too??

    1. No. These are never available in-store. Always online only. But it's always free shipping, so hopefully that helps! :)

  13. Thanks G! This box or boxes have a better selection than the one for April.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I enjoyed the April so definitely getting this one, too! Thanks for the heads up!

  15. I wasn't impressed with the last box, but this one looks really good.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This one seems nice. I love how often they include Laneige products.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The target box is now available.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The box is live now and it $10.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's live! I just got mine! It's $10 this time, but I think it's worth it. Thank you!

  20. Just ordered! Went live a couple minutes after midnight. I couldn't see the item details page but was able to add to my cart from search results and check out. I noticed the lip product wasn't in the small thumbnail so I was worried! But now the full product page is up and while the lip pencil isn't in the photo for some reason, it is still in the box description (it says it's the Le Matte). It also has a sample size of Egyptian Magic cream that I've always been curious about (but it's pretty pricey for what it is if you ask me). Also the box was $10 this time!!!! Surprising since a $7 box I got previously (in Feb I think) was probably an even better value than this one. Still a good deal I guess... I wonder if the high demand encouraged them to raise prices? I got one for my mom too, she's not big on beauty/skincare at all so I always find myself giving her some of my samples... this can be part of her Mother's Day gift! Kinda bummed they didn't keep the price under $10 though, that always made it seem like a super good deal. (I do get 10% off with my red card + 5% retired employee discount from my mom though).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well it's 3:15am here on the East Coast I ordered my two boxes they're $10. this box they're giving you a gift card for five dollars! So technically it only costs $5

    ReplyDelete
  22. Woohoo I'm in at $10 per box but if you order 2 you get a $5 gift card! Thanks G. Since I've been following I haven't miss a box yet! Now I'm going to sleep is 3am here thanks again G. Your the best

    ReplyDelete
  27. This box is up for sale now!

  28. Live 3 am mst. 10 dollars, so I think we may be getting some full size items!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The raised price for this box is interesting. I wonder if that new price is going to be permanent or if it's going to continue to change per box.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi, the box is live and has been since 12am pst 5/2. It's $10, and if you get 2, you get a free $5 gc from their promo for spend $20 on beauty products and get a $5 gc

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ordered! Thanks for the heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  32. $10! Not going to go for this one. There are some good products in there, but I'll pass this time around.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Snagged this one, thanks to you, G. First time trying a target beauty box.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, this one is $10! Big change from the original $5 boxes.

    ReplyDelete
  35. OK the box is up. First off it's $10 this time instead of $5 or $7. And second of all, I don't even see a lip product! Target is getting cray. I'm passing

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was looking forward to trying the Target beauty box. Got up early and added this to my cart until I realized it was $10. Not $5, not $7. Perhaps because they are giving a $5 gift card with a $20 beauty purchase right now? I can just put the $10 towards a Laneige product I want to try. We'll see what they do next month.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I got mine at 3:30 am EST. A first for me!
