I recently ordered a Target Best of Boots Beauty Box ($7 USD).  I haven’t ordered a monthly Target beauty box before.  This one was in addition to the January box.  It featured British brands, so I wanted to try it.  The products included are sample sizes.  I have linked to where you can purchase full sizes of each item:

 No. 7 Restore and Renew Serum                                                                                                    No. 7 Airbrush Away Primer                                                                                                         Soap & Glory Righteous Butter Body Butter                                                                             Soap & Glory Pillow Plump Lip Gloss                                                                                   Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask                                                                                       Sleek MakeUP Eyeshadow Palette

I have tried the Restore & Renew product before.  I received a full size product to review and loved it.  I used it up so quickly, that I’m going to try to make this last! It has a light Jill Texter that instantly absorbs into my skin. It’s so hydrating and makes my skin look very smooth. I also like using it on my neck.

This is my first time trying the Airbrush Away primer. It’s a blurring primer that makes my skin instantly looks smoother. I haven’t use primer for a long time, and I’m getting back into it now. This is really great one too!

IMG_0072 It’s funny, because I recently bought myself a Righteous Butter the same size as this one. I love the scent and feel of this body butter. And absorbs quickly and makes my skin so soft. I like the size because you can put it in your purse or take it on trips.

The Pillow Plump is in the shade Pinkwell. It’s a pretty pink color. It is very tingly on. I haven’t used a lip plumper’s for a long time, so it was a strange sensation. I do love that it is glossy and it’s kind of a natural look. But I don’t think I’ll use it every day.

IMG_0073I haven’t tried the Botanics Shine Away mask yet. It’s doesn’t really appeal to me.  I would give it away, but I keep getting these kind of masks and I think I’ve given one to each of my friends! This is my least favorite product in the box, but the others are amazing, so that’s okay!

This palette is the very mini version of the When The Sun Goes Down Palette. It is so small, as you can see by the bottom photo with my fingers.  The pans are so small, it’s hard to get a brush in there.  I did manage and I did my yes with the bottom left gold and 4th bottom color and the formula is very nice.  I’m thinking about getting it in full size, but different shades.

A $5 off $20 coupon for these brands was included.  I might head to Target this weekend and pick up some Sleek cosmetics.  All of the brands are great, though.  Very nice box for the price!

Did you pick up the Target Boots box?  Or have you got a Target box before?

Powerful Anti-Aging Benefits With Affordable Boots No7

Boots is one of the United Kingdoms top cosmetic and skin care companies. I have recently tried their No7 line which is a range of hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested products using trusted ingredients. Women in the UK have been using Boots No7 for over 75 years, so they must know something, right? I LOVE the following products because they all address aging problems and have the ingredients to fight them! 

Radiance Revealed Exfoliator ($9.99 USD) —  This light and gentle facial exfoliator deeply cleanses, removes dead skin cells and refines pores, leaving skin soft, smooth and glowing with health. With grapefruit and watercress to help purify, plus pro-vitamin B5 to hydrate the skin.

I love how this scrub leaves skin soft and very smooth. It should be used once or twice a week. Gently massage a small amount onto cleansed, damp skin. Wash away thoroughly with warm water.

Protect & Perfect Beauty Serum ($19.99 USD) — Reveal younger looking, beautifully refined skin with this powerful blend of caring and skin restoring ingredients. Light and non-greasy, it glides on instantly softening and smoothing your skin. Then, with regular use, it works to renew your complexion, restoring radiance and helping to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks. With concentrated levels of unique antioxidant complex and skin-firming pro-retinol complex to boost and maintain skin’s elasticity.

This is a very popular anti-aging serum in the UK so I was very excited to use it — and it did not disappoint. It is so light and is absorbs quickly, then makes the skin so soft and silky. Use day and night to supplement a moisturizing regime. Apply a small amount of serum to the palms of the hands and smooth over the face, avoiding the eye area. Finish with moisturizer.

Intensive Line Filler ($17.99 USD) — This is a clever quick-fix that leaves skin looking softer, smoother and more youthful looking. With light-diffusing particles to blur away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s been created to improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles too, with skin looking plumper and less lined in just 2 weeks. It’s all down to an exciting new development: hyaluronic acid spheres. They absorb water in the upper layers of the skin and inflate to many times their original size, appearing to push wrinkles up and away from within.

I love the instant lift to my skin’s texture that this gives. Plus, it gave my whole face a youthful plumping after just a few weeks uses. Smooth onto the places most vulnerable to expression lines: around your mouth and eyes, between your brows and across your forehead. Follow with No7 Time Resisting or Lifting and Firming moisturizers.

Spring Eye Shadow Choices From Boots No7, Napoleon Perdis and Josie Maran
