Heyhey followers, do you celebrate Memorial Day?
My dad just said there’s a tropical depression forming, so no one’s probably doing anything. It’s weird that we’ve been having storms all week, and the depression is still news to me. Is it weird that bought Target’s May Beauty Box for myself when it had a Mother’s Day theme (and I’m not a mother)? 😘

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Lotion Sunscreen
I feel like everyone uses this sunscreen, and I’m just like, “Doesn’t one of those cost as much as this entire box?” So that value is part of why I went ahead and bought it, and it will be nice to try a smaller sample. It claims to be the #1 dermatologist recommended sunscreen. I like that it’s water-resistant and has a higher SPF. The 3oz version retails $7.09 at Target.
St. Ives Cleansing Stick
Now this is something I haven’t seen before! At first, I thought this was a deodorant, but apparently, you clean your face with it (TBH, it does smell like deodorant… Is St. Ives punking us rn?). It actually sounds very nice as it’s made with coconut oil, hibiscus, and… cactus water? Evidently, the last two help soften and hydrate skin. It’s also paraben-free. The size I received, 1.59oz, costs $7.89 at Target.
Soap & Glory Body Buffer
The little info card calls this a “butter,” but it’s most definitely a scrub. It’s clear with pink beads, smells very nice, like something from Victoria’s Secret. I haven’t used it yet, so maybe it’s amazingly moisturizing or something, but I’m quite sold to a larger size at $10.99.
Scunci Spiral Twisters
Again, the card says something different than online (hence name differences in my video), but they’re not too different. I believe Conair owns Scunci. These are pretty cute! They remind me of corded phones in the 1990s. Remember those? Hopefully, they don’t pull at my hair and keep their shape. Six pieces cost $3.
La Roche Posay Lipikar
Readers, I’m going to be honest with you… (so you’re not allowed to laugh). I saw “lip” and “balm” and thought this was a lip balm. It is most definitely a moisturizing cream, you know, for any other skin on your body!! This seems pretty fancy (full sized at $20); the kind of thing developed in a lab, and I don’t think I’m that dry. But here is an option if you are!
Bodycology Free & Lovely Mist
Any guilt I had about getting this box (somewhat) washed away when I opened it and was enveloped in this scent! I think that it’s either the same or very similar to the Beauty Protector conditioner that I received in a Birchbox a while ago. It’s called “Lavender & Amber” but says there’s also notes of lemon, vanilla, and iris. It’s free of parabens, phtalates, dyes, animal testing, and mineral oil. I’m sure this size will last me a long time, but I’d say that $5 for the 8oz size is worth it!
OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Dry Shampoo
Whenever I see coupons for OGX, I consider it but never go through, so this was a great deal. I’ve only used one Aveeno dry shampoo before, so I’m glad to have new one! Comparatively, OGX doesn’t seem as fragrant (smells good at nozzle but not much smell once sprayed) or wet. The nozzle seems difficult too where you have to press hard and then a lot comes out. The 5oz option will set you back $6.99.
I don’t usually follow Target boxes, so I can’t say, “Once again, they knock it out of the park!” But I did really like this one. The La Roche Posay cream is undoubtedly high quality, but… I wish it really was a lip product. And yes, I will share this will my mother. Have a good weekend!
