How To Build Your Goo Hoard On The Cheap

For those of you with a goo addiction, there is a way to get a ton on the cheap. Target Boxes are the best buys as far as beauty boxes go. They are cheap and chock full. This month they were pretty dang good. First off, The Naturals Box: only $5 and shipping – and if you use your Target card you can save 5%, pretty good huh?

Seriously, 5 bucks? If all you do is get this every month, you will have enough stock to pretty much get through your beauty routine for practically nothing. Most of the products will last for several uses. I swear I can get an ounce of facial cleanser to last a week.

So, for the goodies. I have only tried the hand cream so far. I will update as I sample.

Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – I am excited about trying these. It reminded me about the company actually, which led me to watch his story, Burt’s Buzz  on Netflix. I had no idea how interesting and strange it is. I have only ever thought of them as a lip balm company, but they have a ton of products. I just hope they are taking care of Burt somehow.

Borghese Age Defying Cellulare Complex Exfoliate – good sample size at 1 oz., always happy to try a new scrub

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – 1 oz. This is Fantastic!!!! I used it before bed one night and it is really great. It is a dark green mossy color which is unique and as you use it the foam it produces is luxurious. It was not a harsh scrub and I think I may add this to my collection. I jumped over to the company’s site and they look promising. Organic products are my absolute favorite. Great quality and I think the full size is only 9.99 on the Target website.

Soapbox Shampoo – I just bought a full size of Unite products, so I may not be trying this for a while. Smells wonderful AND the company donates a portion of the proceeds to a child in need. That is what I LOVE about this company. They have a ton of stuff so I am going to check out their site more thoroughly later.

Skinfix Hand Repair Cream – This is really nice.  A little goes a long way and I used it on my elbows twice and they are super soft.

Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie – Going to try this one next time I don’t need to blow dry my hair!

and the regular Beauty Box, which used to be 7$ and is now 10$:

There are a few things I will be sending on to pen pals or giveaways because I just refuse to put products on my body that have certain chemicals in them. Like propelyne glycol. I banned that from the household products years ago.  I am not going to go into detail on these, but I will say that full size products – about 50$ worth for only 10 bucks is a stellar deal. I will be giving a lot of these away so leave a comment below for a chance to have a freebie sent to you 🙂

You can also check out my Instagram if you want a snapshot of past boxes so you can make a decision on which box to start with 🙂
