    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Whoops! Thanks! 🙂

  2. Cari

    I just got mine today! Was so excited when I opened them! The mens one is fantastic

  3. Diana

    Have the coupons expired? Those look like the same ones mailed to me during back to school- which have expired.

    • Cari

      No they don’t expire until 2015

    • brandice

      Nope coupons expire 7/10/15
      Plenty of time to use on a good promo Target has running at times

    • Corinne

      No I got m boxes and the coupons don’t expire until next July.

    Did anyone receive and like the Target beauty box. I thought nice products but beige lipstick and white eyeliner not much use to me. Ellnet hairspray is great but little samples of BB cushion questionable. Will try the dry shampoo at some point in time.
    Probably would not order again as the shades of makeup were way out of touch with my needs. I wondered how everyone else made out and if they received the same products I received. I appreciate the post though and enjoyed getting the little box in the mail.

    • Barb J

      I was not impressed with my Target beauty box and I paid more for this than the box above, go figure. I agree the lipstick and eye liner was not for me. It will go in a gift basket for someone else.

    • Des

      I liked my box, I use the eye crayon as a shadow base instead of eyeliner, it helps my shadows last longer and look more pigmented. The lipstick was too nude for me though. I was impressed with everything else.

      • Megan

        That’s a great tip for the eye crayon! Thanks. 🙂

    • Ami

      I honestly preferred the Walmart beauty box and I am the first one kicking and screaming that Walmart is horrible. The WM products were more drugstore products but I will use every single item. The Target box was “better” brands but the colors were just totally off for me. Only using the dry shampoo and the coupon.

    • liz

      I like the shade of lipstick, a rose shade, but got a white eye pencil. I will try it as a shadow base and see. The hair spray and dry shampoo are good sizes for travel and dry shampoo is a must for travel. Have not opened the BB cushion. Not wild on that. I have to say I preferred when they were free, but I will do it again.

    • Miss May

      I just got my box today. Have to agree with you ladies. I was “okay” with it. Depending on what’s in the next one, I may or may not order. I do like the hairspray and dry shampoo though.

    • Brittany

      It’s mostly used as an eyeshadow base and shadow pencil.

  5. Buffy

    I love the women’s and men’s. They are a great value, the cheese puff one not so much. But thank you for posting!!!

  6. Barb J

    I got my box yesterday and have yet to open it.

  7. Angi

    I received the Men’x Box Yesterday and it had a full Nivea Men’s Face lotion. Iwas surprised to see that because the site said .5 ounce. I am not complaining.

  8. lvillotta1

    I received my 2 orders for the food one. In this box I received 1 box Nature Valley granola bars, 4 pk Kraft mac-chesese cups,lg bag sour patch kids,lg bag of cashews,box variety Quaker oats oatmeal, 8 CT single serve G2 packets,fruit stripes and large container of Orbitz gum plus coupons. What an amazing deal for $10. I am now addicted to shopping online at target plus free shipping and 5% back right to my door. Thx Colin for making my life much easier.

    • Barb J

      I got that box last week too.

    • Kris

      Which box was that? The one advertised above? Thanks.

  9. Janet

    Are these coupons manufacturer coupons or target coupons?

    • brandice

      Target store which u can use with manf coupons

  10. Ami

    For those who have received the box and if it’s not too much to ask, can you all post what part of the country you are in? I will have a bunch of these. I got eager and must have pressed the place order button two too many times. I am getting three orders of two each instead of one order of two each. Everyone will be getting this in their stocking. I didn’t catch it until days later when I logged on to show a friend. I guess I’ll need to carry a big bag to the mailbox one day this week.

    • Lilly

      In Los Angeles California (:

      • Ami

        Thx! This Miami girl loves LA and the OC!

    • brandice

    • Theresa

      Long Island, ny. Got mine today

    • Angela

      San Jose CA! Missing four boxes though. Hoping they will arrive later today or this week. The men’s box is amazing and they are in big boxes. For some reason I thought they would come in smaller boxes or in plastic bags.

  11. Katie

    The men’s kit was awesome! Wish it was in still in stock, I want to buy more!!!:)

  12. Ashley

    I agree the men’s box was well worth $5. I want more too!!

    • 1luv

        • Angela

          Instead of the face wash I got a neutrogena mens face lotion 1.7 oz and the Nivea face wash was a sample 0.1 oz

  13. Theresa

    Wish I ordered more of the men’s box …. awesome deal for $5

  14. Susie

    Sent one of the personal care boxes to my daughter in college and one to her roommate. They both loved them! I informed her that the coupons needed to be sent to me 😉

    • Dawn

      That’s cute Susie! I laughed. 😃

      My boxes are set to arrive on Thursday in CA. I ordered 10… 5 of each. Can’t wait! 👏

    • Andrea

      Susie, I did the same, but I didn’t think to ask for the coupons! Great idea 🙂

  15. Amy Davis

    What does WalMart call their boxes? Are they avail on their website?

  16. jackie

    I did walmarts several weeks ago got it and it is worth the five dollars. great items in it. when you see stuff like this buy them. and as far as target I shoponline with the free shipping and five percent

  17. Angie D

    There are beauty swap groups on facebook for those who don’t like what they received. Just make sure that you are willing to follow through with your end of the swap, send new, unopened items & it is customary to include a few nice extras in most groups. Also, be careful to get to know people before swapping. Some are scam artists! It’s best to get to know people through a group & also get tracking # when they send out your package.

  18. tam childers

    Did anyone buy this food box and receive it yet? Were the coupons that came with it food coupons?

    • Ktee

      I received the food box today- def worth the money, but no coupons?

  19. Jen

    How much is shipping if you only purchase one box?

    • Chelsie

      The shipping is free.

  20. Michelle

    Thanks. This will, also be, good to send to a deployed soldier. Gonna check if th ey mail APO

  21. kathy

    FREE shipping makes these an even better deal! Glad I waited and now Target.com is offering free shipping until dec.20

  22. Carrie

    I ordered an INSANE amount of these as the beginnings to care kits for all of the girls going to my bachelorette weekend! You coundn’t put something like this together for $5 if you tried.
