Self-Care Sunday Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

Target Beauty BoxI must say this last month or two has been stressful (sick cat, family feud, etc.), so I really needed this self-care Sunday.  I read a lot on the internet and most recommendations are too expensive.  Not everyone can or wants to spend a bunch of money just to feel a little pampered.  I found an excellent substitute while walking through my local Target: the Target Beauty Box for $7.  Yes, $7, which is less than most fast food meals cost these days.  There were three different options and I chose the “In Your Skin” box because it contained the most products that I could use.

The box included:

  1. Pixl Rose Tonic – I loved the smell of this.  It has a fresh, rosy scent.  I used this toner after applying the mask below.  Between the two products, I didn’t have to moisturize my face.
  2. Native Lavender & Rose Deodorant – Okay, here’s my mini rant.  Why do so many products lately have coconut in them?  Do companies realize some people are allergic to coconut or do they not care because it is trendy?  I am allergic to coconut and it gives me a rash.  I skipped this one.  Didn’t even smell it.
  3. Method Body Wash Pure Peace – This was my favorite product in the box.  One of the scents is peony, which is one of my favorite flowers.  I would definitely buy the full size of this one.
  4. Garnier SkinActive Rose Mist Spray – I didn’t try this one yet.  I didn’t need it with the other products I used.
  5. Garnier SkinActive Rose Water 3-in-1 Moisturizer – This product confused me a bit, not just because it can be a moisturizer or a mask.  The description on the packet mentions coconut, but the ingredients do not list coconut.  I took a risk and used it as a face mask.  It removed a ton of dead skin and left my skin looking soft and glowy.  I wouldn’t buy it because I am unsure if there is really coconut in it and I won’t risk having my face look like a diseased lizard from a possible allergic reaction.

Overall, this box was fun to use..  I enjoy trying new beauty products.  I would totally buy another one of these boxes and hope for one with zero coconut.
