Essie Gel Couture Top Coat

Essie Gel Couture Top Coat

Achieve a salon-level manicure at home with Essie’s shiniest top coat. Apply it on top of a long-wearing polish from the Gel Couture collection to enjoy a fresh manicure that lasts a week. A lovely hue to try is 139 Matter of Fiction, a subtle baby pink that looks chic on any skin tone. The gloss-enhancing top coat by Essie features a large applicator that allows the distribution of the product quickly. It works with any other regular nail polish in your collection, so you can create the “color gel” nails at home with nail polishes you already own.

Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Calm & Serenity

Dr. Teals Pure Epsom Salt Calm and Serenity

Whether you are over-worked out at the gym or need a minute for yourself, consider putting Dr. Teal’s soaks in your Target cart. Epsom salt, a key ingredient in Dr. Teal’s bath salts, is a known solution for eliminating muscle soreness after workouts and decompressing the mind after a hard day. If you love the scent of roses, consider Calm & Serenity soak with rose essential oil that will ease soreness. Milk protein included in the formula will ensure that your skin feels exceptionally smooth after taking your bath.

Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water

Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water

Gentle makeup removing micellar water is a staple at French beauty pharmacies that beauty editors are so obsessed with. But did you know that you can find Bioderma products at Target too? Apply Bioderma micellar water on a cotton round to remove even waterproof makeup with ease – no face washing is required. The product is gentle enough to use even on sensitive skin.

Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen

Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen

This creamy, densely pigmented pencil is the easiest to apply. It goes smoothly and stays on all day without causing any irritations. As a comparison point, the texture of this product reminds Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil, which is available at Sephora for $22. Almost half price cheaper, Endless Silky Eye Pen my Pixi delivers similarly impressive results.

Bliss Block Star SPF 30 Daily Sunscreen

Bliss Block Star SPF 30 Daily Sunscreen

Finding a good mineral sunscreen is never easy, especially if a price point is a concern. This lightly tinted sunblock is a rare exception that you can find at Target. The product features a smooth, luxurious texture comparable to more expensive sunscreens. It offers that “glow from within” more typical for tinted moisturizers, not sunblocks. At a $25 price tag, consider including this skincare gem in your next Target shopping haul.

Tree Hut SugarLip Lip Butter

Tree Hut SugarLip Lip Butter

Dry lips are not fun, and sticky lip glosses are neither. Going to Target, don’t forget to pick up lip butter in a tube by Tree Hut. The scent of this lip treatment is so sweet that you’d want to eat it. And your lips will feel nourished and protected thanks to shea butter and rosehip oil included in the formula.

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes

Removing makeup while traveling could be a challenge: no one likes a spilled cleansing oil in their luggage. For situations like this, consider skin cleansing wipes by Simple. Easy to pack and even easier to use, these compostable wipes remove even waterproof makeup without leaving residue or irritating your skin.

Shea Moisture Illuminating Hand & Body Scrub

Shea Moisture Illuminating Hand & Body Scrub

Skin exfoliation has never been more enjoyable than with this decadently scented body scrub by Shea Moisture. This sugar-based scrub gently removes dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, more radiant-looking skin. This all-natural, gluten-free formula features coconut oil, shea butter, and Hibiscus and is suitable for everyday use.

TRESemme Extra Hold Hair Spray

TRESemme Extra Hold Hair Spray

This hair spray holds your hair “do” so good and looks so natural that you’d want to get a large bottle! Gently spritz the product over your hair as a finishing step in your blow-out routine. Spritzing hairspray will prolong the lifespan of your hairstyle and ensure that your hair won’t be affected by the weather.

Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream

Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream

This plant-based nourishing cream achieved its cult-following for a reason. It is known to heal all the rough, dry patches on your skin in days. Consider adding this skincare gem to your Target cart if you have dry skin that looks flakey.

Beauty editors recommend applying this beeswax and camomile-based cream overnight to maximize its skin radiance-enhancing qualities.
