Target's New Curated Beauty Boxes Are Practically Made For Gifting Season

Any kind of subscription service sounds great — free music, streaming TV, weekly meals delivered to your door — until you start considering that pesky monthly fee. $9.99 a month isn't so bad for Spotify Premium, you think. Then you tally up how much that will ding you over the course of a year, and realize a curated, ad-free workout playlist might not be worth $120 in the long run after all.
Luckily, Target understands both our need for convenience and general aversion to accumulating credit-card debt, which is why the megastore is bringing us the coolest beauty subscription service — without the actual subscription. Each month, Target's beauty team puts together a cute, curated box filled with travel-sized personal-care essentials, along with fun not-so-essentials, and makes the set available to any Target shopper buying in-store or online.
Ahead, we're breaking down what's inside the just-launched December Beauty Box (which retails for just $7) plus all the other hidden-gem, holiday-specific assorted bundles you can grab along with it — with zero hidden fees to catch you by surprise on your next bank statement.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
