Target October 2016 Beauty Box Preview


UPDATE: This box is now live and available HERE for $7 + free shipping. No mascara!

I've been checking the Beauty Box page on the Target website about once an hour for the past 72 hours, and guess what? The preview for the October box is now live!

You can check it out for yourself HERE but as always, when you see that "sold out" sign on the banner, it's in reference to the September box. The October beauty box has not yet gone live as of the time of this post, and I don't expect it go to live until Monday, 10/3 (more on that in a bit).

The products in the October box will include:

As always, we won't know for sure which of these items will be full-size, which will be deluxe/travel samples and which will be foil packets until the box actually goes live. However, I am guessing that the Laneige BB Cushion will be the same one that was in the Target October 2014 Beauty Box (you can see that sample HERE), which comes with three shades (pods) plus a small cushion. I'm also guessing that you'll get one of three shades for the ChapStick lip balm and that it will be full-size. And the WnW eyeliner and Maybelline mascara should be full-size as well. I'm guessing that this box will be between $7 and $10, and the Target Beauty Boxes ALWAYS come with free shipping for all customers. Last month there was a limit of one box per customer, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did a limit again this time around.

I'm a little surprised that the Maybelline mascara is another box so soon. I'm pretty sure that mascara has been in at least three previous boxes so far (the last time being just last month!), so I'm wondering why they can't change it up and at least give us another Maybelline formula this time around?

Last month, the box went live at around 2:30AM Pacific. so I'm guessing that the October box will go live at around 2:30AM Pacific on 10/3. As always, I will post here and on all of my social media accounts the moment I see that it's up. The October box didn't sell out until around 11PM Pacific on the day it went live, so hopefully everyone who wants this one will have plenty of time on 10/3 to grab it.

  1. The Target boxes have been becoming less desirable and it seems like they repeat too often.

    1. Agreed. How many mascaras can I use/give away? Plus I already have a full size of the day creme and I don't love it. Chapsticks are another item I have a thousand of. Might be the first box in a while I'll skip.

    2. Totally agree! I hate that mascara and it was in last month's box...why, Target, why??? Also, not that interested in mini shampoos and conditioners...I have a bunch of them already. I may pass on this unless it's super cheap. I wouldn't mind trying that WNW liner.

    3. Agreed - that mascara sucks! Why would they think we'd want the same exact mascara this month?

  2. This one is an easy pass for me, too many repeats for sure with the mascara, laneige and Derma-e as well as the chapstick making appearances quite regularly in this and other boxes. Thank for all your hard work though!!

  3. Umm...yeah this one is a pass for me. They really are getting boring lately.

  4. I do love these Target boxes. But a repeat of mascara from the month before I agree with u. I would like to try the new one in the purple colors something about Angels or angel wings I think. Or I could be just making that up thinking the wand looked like that. But hearing good reviews on that one. I have the laniege cushion foundation pods from some in this year I thought. U got three colors and sponge each time. Small pods but enough to get at least one full application if not more. I let mine dry up on the one that was I opened which was light. They had light, med, & dark? But online on target they have more colors in the line. I thought it was really nice. If it wasn't so expensive I would buy it. I wish they would keep the prices down a bit more too. Like 5-7$ range. I have really enjoyed them all. But for ten I want a little more than a mascara I got last box. Had some bad reviews. Monday morning will be perfect I hope for me. Is pacific California time? Sorry I know I could check online.but I'm usually up late and get them when they go on sale. I sleep better I think. Lol. Thanks so much. Been thinking about that time again. 😍

  5. Also my son got a sample of Paul Mitchel special shampoo with tea tree and peppermint I think in it or smelled like peppermint. I don't know know much about tea tree. Oil been awhile since I smelled it. But looking for a cheaper version if possible. Chi sells one at Ulta but not a lot of price difference. So he could try those in the box. He likes the minty feel in the shampoo wouldn't u know falls for an expensive shampoo. Just when trying to get him to realize taking care of one self is important not a little boy any more. 16and a half. Almost a MAN. But trying to work on skin care etc.

    1. If your son enjoys the minty feel on his scalp, you may want him to try the mint shampoo from Trader Joe's or Sally Beauty carries the GVP version of the Paul Mitchell.
      -Good luck

    2. Joyce, I totally agree with Bran W's suggestions (both of them)! Also, Head & Shoulders makes a lovely shampoo called Refreshing Mint Shampoo for Men. I bought it for Mr. G when he came back from Hawaii and his scalp was peeling a bit. I don't have dandruff but the smell is so nice that I have been sneaking it in the shower semi-regularly because I like how my hair looks after I use it (and I love the scent). :)

    3. I'm fairly certain thats the shampoo/conditioner i've been using- I picked it up on a whim with my employee discount at my job. God, I love it. So invigorating! My scalp is tingly (in a good way) for a couple hours after each use!

    4. Oh Great Thanks everyone for the ideas. We don't have a Trader Joe's just got one in the city but that's a drive. But we do have a Sally's. I would so love to shop at a Trader Joe's. Saw the info on what they have a little on the news and OMG it looks nice and all the spices and Cookie Butter really. I will check out all ur ideas. He has used Head and Shoulders before and couldn't figure out why he liked it and wanted it and I bet that's it. I really appreciate all these options. Don't really have the budget for higher end shampoos or higher end anything really. Lol. Newly single mom and no support because he is not working and keeps turning jobs down one excuse or another. Wish there someway he had to work. That's another story. Thanks so much everyone have a WONDERDUL WEEKEND.

  6. Thanks for the update! Don't think I'll be stalking you or Target for this box, nothing too new or exciting, in fact I think I've already tried all those things before. Hope they step it up closer to the holidays!

  7. Yeah this will be the second box in a row I won't be purchasing. I am sure this box will be 10.00 again and I can think of a million products I can get at ulta right now with that 10.00! These Target boxes are really becoming less and less desirable. The Walmart boxes had more in them this time around and only costs 5.00! That mascara isn't the best, probably why they are trying to get rid of them lol.

  10. If anyone is getting the box for the Laneige, please note that they give those out for free at the store if you ask for it. Just seek out the beauty concierge person.

    This box will be a pass for me since I don't like that mascara having received it from a previous box and that Derma E cream smells so bad.

  11. I agree with everyone else! Very underwhelming this month. Here's to Nov & Dec being decent (hopefully).

  12. Perhaps they're trying to get rid of that mascara...I've never seen anything but poor reviews of it so maybe they have lots of overstock? Regardless, this one will be a pass from me - too many repeats of past items and/or things I already have or not that interested in.

  13. I'm going to pass on this month box. I have so much mascara and nothing else is appealing this time around.

  14. I'd like to try the cushion foundation, but otherwise don't really need anything in this box.

  15. This is the third Target box that I've passed on. I must I'll or something LOL The Walmart beauty box is on it's way as I noticed my debit card was charged $5 the other day.

  16. I'll have to pass on this box, nothing looks interesting to me. I feel like that mascara is haunting me at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The mascara is no longer listed on that Target.com page. Maybe put there by accident?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is anyone else having problems buying it? none of the links work to get just the box, it is all full size products.

    Thanks :D

  19. It's live! I was going to get it if it was $7, but since I don't see the mascara, I don't think the rest of it is worth it for me this time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The boxes are live, and there is no mascara in them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is now live and no mascara listed. I think this one will be another pass for me. Only the balm sounds interesting so I'll just pick that up separately.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I passed on this box as well. Too many repeats. πŸ˜•
