Target August 2016 Beauty Box is Live


UPDATE: the August Target Beauty Box (Back to College Box) is now live! You can get it HERE for $7 and free shipping.

PLEASE NOTE: if you are charged $4 shipping, this is a glitch as you can see in the listing when you click that link that shipping is supposed to be free ("ships free" is in red letters). So click here and select "online experience" to do a live chat or call customer service and ask them to adjust (you may not need to do this if you have a Target REDcard since shipping is always free on all orders with your card and you also get 5% off all purchases, including this box). Thanks so much to everyone below for letting me know that this box is now live!

You can tell by the image what's full-size (razors, NYC Lipstick, and CoverGirl Katy Perry Mascara).

up & up™ Women's 5-Blade Razor
Combines coated blades and lubricating moisture strips with botanical oils to glide over your skin for a close, smooth shave.

With 2 times the sweat protection of regular antiperspirant, it absorbs odor while releasing a scent to keep you smelling clean and feeling dry.

CoverGirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara – Black
Create a 360° cat eye with a sculpting brush that sweeps lashes up and out for lush voluminous lashes that won’t smudge or smear. 

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips 
Delivering professional-level results, these teeth-whitening strips remove 14 years of teeth stains to give you a whiter smile.

The Target August Beauty Box is not yet live as of 12:30AM Pacific on 8/1. You can check it for yourself HERE (as of the time of publication, that link it still listing the items from the July beauty boxes; you can see my unboxing here to verify).

I'm exhausted and can't stay up any longer, so hopefully at some point tonight the box will go live. And if it doesn't, then maybe they'll release the box tomorrow night? I know it has gone live on the first Tuesday of the month in the past (it went live on a Tuesday for July, but it went live on a Monday for May and it also went live on a Monday for April). So who knows! What I do know is that I'll do another blog post as soon as I see some action on that page.

It's 8:03 amEST and ive been up since July 31st @ 1:00 pm. Gdnight 😉 or Gd Morning whichever time zone your in lol.😄 💕 💕

    5. I am able to order this morning but they're charging me $4 for shipping. Wasn't shipping free on Target beauty boxes? Or am I mixing that up with another subscription?

      Delete
    6. G.....Wake up! Target Boxes appear to be live!

      Unfortunately it looks like they have started to charge for shipping. :(

      Delete
    7. It's there but when I go to shopping cart it's charging 4.00 to ship 😁

  2. Idk if it's been said or not, but Sonia Kashuk Knockout collection is 30-50% off in stores surrounding my area.

  3. It's up! They are calling it the Back to College beauty box. It's $7.00 . I looked it up as "beauty sample box".

  4. Thank you for all your hard work & bringing us the latest sales! I know I greatly appreciate all you do! I never would have been getting so many awesome deals without you!

  5. It is live, but as 6:00 am EST there are glitches and can't place my order. The theme is Back to College and it is priced at $7. Will try again later this morning. Thanks G for the heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  6. 6:29a east the Target beauty box august shows up...College themed but didn't appear to be "active" yet...it does not look very "fun"?

    ReplyDelete
  7. "Back to College" beauty box is live. The CoverGirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara ($6.99 at Target, $8.99 at Ulta) covers the $7.00 price of the box, so everything else is free.

    I'm curious if they will add another option/theme later today.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The August box is up now. The theme seems to be "back to college." (Shampoo, deodorant, sleep mask, mascara, lip color, razors, etc.) I get an error message when I try to add it to my cart. So I'm guessingredients it's not available for purchase yet.

    ReplyDelete
  9. It's live, now, got mine! Thanks for the reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Target is live.. " Back to college", $7,

  13. Just got one for my daughter. Back to College theme. Thanks for your hard work!!!

  14. As of 7:49 EST It is showing the box on the Target website but as I click to purchase it, it says item not available. So it shows the back to college box with some Up&Up razors, Olay makeup wipes, Secret Clinical strength deodorant, Laniege water sleeping mask, Crest 3D white strips, Katy Kat eye mascara, NYC lip color in Pinkdigious & Juice Organics repairing shampoo & conditioner in Coconut

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just checked, it's up, but when I click "add to cart" it gives me an error that says "item not buyable" ???

    ReplyDelete
  16. Meh, this one's not too exciting to me. I'm going to pass. I have tried the up&up razors before and don't care for them. They had a plastic piece that would scratch my skin as I used it. I'll be crossing my fingers for the next one! Thanks for staying up late to try to see it posted!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I got mine at 7"00 am eastern time. They charged $4 for shipping which I thought was odd. Am I mistaken it was it usually free? I almost didn't bother for the $4 shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's live as per an email I received from Target but an error code is coming up on the app and browser 👎🏼

    ReplyDelete
  19. When I click your link, nothing is showing. When I go to Target.com and search August Beauty Box it does come up. But when you try to buy it, it says " Item not available to buy". So I guess it's not "live" yet maybe. Anyway, I signed into my account and added it to my loves so I figured once it does go live, I can just add it that way. I'm going to keep checking throughout the day. This was at 8:20 AM EST by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It is available but when you add it to cart it says about not buyable?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Appears it there but get a message "msg item not buy able". Appears going live soon

    ReplyDelete
  22. They have a $7 August back to school beauty box that I can only see from my computer, but when I try to add it to my cart it says item not buyable?? Does that mean it's not for sale yet or its sold out?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Got an email that it is live, but won't add to cart!! :(

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hey G, wanted to let you know that the box is live!

    ReplyDelete
  25. As of 8:45am ET, the box is showing but not available. The box went active around 7am but there was shipping ($4) on the box. The box went down and is now unavailable. I have a feeling that Target is trying to get the right settings (free shipping).

    ReplyDelete
  26. I called Target at 8:45 ET. They know they're having an ordering issue. I was advised to keep trying over the next few hours while they work to get it resolved.

    ReplyDelete
  27. They have a $7 back to school beauty box that I can only see from my computer. When I try to add it to my cart, it says item not buyable? Does that mean that we just can't purchase it yet or its sold out?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Add to cart. Msg_item_not_buyable. Tried 5 times. Is it not ready?

    ReplyDelete
  29. The NYC lipstick is listed in the August Beauty Bix is PINKdigious (100) but the picture shows the color FUSCIAtastic (201). I still can't add the box to my cart on my iPhone. Message reads, "Item is not buyable".

    ReplyDelete
  30. I received an e-mail from Target regarding the Beauty Box but when I go to order it it says "Not Buyable"?? I received the e-mail about 7:52am

    I'll try again in a couple of minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Target's August box is live now! (8:15a Central Time) I just ordered it!! Thanks for keeping it on my radar each month :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like it is finally working but they are charging shipping on them :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ok, now it's letting me add it to my cart & checkout, but it's charging me $4 for shipping? I thought the shipping is always free on these boxes?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I tried buying it but it keeps charging me $4 for shipping. I thought the box shipped free?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Is anyone else having it try to charge them $4.00 in shipping on this one?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks to be live now--a college beauty box

    ReplyDelete
  37. I see the August box up now. It's called Back to College and you can find it at that same link you posted above.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Any tricks for shipping? It's almost as much as the box itself.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's live now for me, but I'm so confused as to why they are trying to charge me shipping on it! Maybe I am losing my mind but I thought they all had free shipping??

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's live now. I ordered it and they changed me for shipping. I thought they didn't charge shipping on the beauty box

    ReplyDelete
  41. It is actually $4 for shipping. Hopefully this will get fixed soon!

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's live. $4 shipping though? Is that new?

    ReplyDelete
  43. wow! I just checked and the box is live, however they're charging shipping and tax! So for me in GA it's $11.66 I'll probably still get one but I'm a little disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's available now! "Back to College" for $7

    ReplyDelete
  45. I checked Target.com at 6:55am PST and the August Box is LIVE!

    ReplyDelete
  46. When I go to check out it doesn't give me the option for free shipping, I've tried on my smartphone and desk top:( Same thing happened last month too!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ok, I just purchased mine, but I had to do the online Target chat for them to take off the shipping costs. He said it's a glitch in their system & it shouldn't be charging for shipping. Just contact them & they will waive it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's up! But - no free shipping.....it sees like you have to add other stuff to your cart to hit the $25 shipping minimum - how strange!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I actually got an email from Target this morning to let me know that the Beauty Boxes are live. That's a first!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I saw the August items and gonna pass this month too 😑

    ReplyDelete
  51. Passing - the extra charge for shipping was the one that made me skip it. I just unsubscribed from Sephora too, and will unsub from Birchbox. Looks like Walmart will be the last man standing - as long as they don't charge shipping!

    ReplyDelete
  52. So now I see why I haven't been able to get Target Beauty Boxes in the past! :-) G, your hard work without a doubt gets put to good use...many many thanks have made several purchase this past couple weeks alone because of all the time and effort you've put into informing us of all the spectacular beauty deals out there. I got 2 boxesat 7 am. (Not such "fun" goods, but enjoy the box itself and always get one for friend) Re: shipping (for Target) I have a Target red card (a debit) and shipping is always free and also gives you 5% off...any purchase, just an fyi

    ReplyDelete
  53. It is charging for shipping,bringing amount charged to $11.00. Beauty Box is $7.00 and Shipping is $4.00, Grand Total $11.00, now I got my Beauty Box early this morning (not as early as others) and even though there is $4.00 for shipping, I was ecstatic to still receive my box for a much discounted price. Even with shipping, the Beauty Box is worth it especially when box is worth $32. I mean at $11.00 that is still a savings of just over 1/3 the retail value for the box. While I am used to NO SHIPPING, I am Happy to pay shipping with the savings I am getting. Thank You target and Thank You G and everyone for your diligent hard work. ~BLESSINGS

  54. So funny that so many readers are not fans of this box; personally, I'm so excited for this one!

    1. Same here! I haven't liked the last few offerings but will use everything in this one :) so happy I was able to grab it yesterday.

  55. Thanks G. Got the box with free shipping. Not too excited but still....

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm going to pass on this one. Thanks for all your hard work.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks for the update G! I hope you got some rest ;) I'm happy I was able to get the box (just now) considering how late in the day it is! Mine showed free shipping as well, so I think maybe Target fixed the glitch? This one is SOOOOO much better than both of last month's boxes combined!! Definitely worth my $7, as I will easily use everything in this box!

  60. When I first added it to my cart the extra $4 for shipping showed up, but when I checked out with my redcard the charge was removed. The box cost me $7.25. This is a great box! I will actually use all the products!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Boy, talk about jumping through hoops to get this! What is the deal? That was a major catastrophe this morning. Its not like this is their first ever box. I had to do the live chat for them to wave the shipping but what a shame all those poor Customer Service Reps had to endure all this nonsense this morning. In short, Target should know better!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Bummer. I grabbed one yesterday, no problems. Guess I got lucky for a change lol!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I didn't get in on this one. But I see they had the same ordering issue they had last month where it was live but when you tried to add it, you got a not available message. Then add the erroneous $4 shipping charge and gee whiz, Target, ??? They could help themselves and their customers by setting up a subscription, but it appears they may like the manufactured hype...never announcing when it will go live, going live in the middle of the night, selling out quickly, etc. Frustrating your customers who are trying to order and disappointing others who don't get online in the first couple hours may not be the best PR.

    ReplyDelete
  64. So I just got an email from Target saying my package will be on the way soon. I opened the email and saw they did not charge me for shipping!!! I am very happy. I bet they fixed the problem and it corrected all the orders. My faith in Target is restored!
