We recently got our hands on a Target Beauty Box , and we have a sneaking suspicion a curly girl was in charge of this one. It contains products from Jane Carter Solution, CURLS, Dove's Quench Absolute curl line, and SheaMoisture, so we gave our editors their pick of the products to try and review.

This is the upcoming Fall box which goes on sale on September 8, and if you want one we recommend setting yourself a little calendar reminder because these babies usually sell out on the first day! At $5-7 each, it's no wonder they're in high demand. Of course you can find these products on the Target shelves year-round, so if the thought of waiting until September 8 is too much to bare (we're talking to you, Product Junkie) then pick them up at your local Target or online any time.

*Editor's Note: We checked and it looks like the Fall Beauty Box has now sold out.

Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner

I've been using this as a "braid spray" while I have my protective style in. Old school braid sprays are greasy or sticky and often make me feel like I need to wash my hair sooner! This leave-in is lightweight and doesn't contain glycerin -- no stickiness! The extracts like vitamin E, camomile, horsetail, and rosemary soothe my scalp when it gets itchy. I haven't noticed increased buildup on my roots at all. It only takes 3 or 4 sprays and I'm good!

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste Express White

I'm ALWAYS a little skeptical when it comes to teeth whitening things ( strips, mold, and especially toothpaste.) I have never really seen results. Once, I tried whitening trays and I experienced some sensitivity. I didn't like that. With that in mind, I must say the Colgate Whitening toothpaste was good. I've only used it 3 times for a total day and a half. It said I would see results in just 3 days. So far, my teeth feel clean. Whiter? Not so much. I like how thick the paste is. That makes me feel like it will stick to my teeth and create that whitening effect.

CURLS Creme Brulee Whipped Curl Cream

The CURLS Whipped Curl Cream smells like a nice, warm vanilla dessert. It's so nice. I love the consistency. It feels like a light conditioner. It's not thick and not runny either.  It made my hair softer, more defined, and even added a little hold. I've become a snob about ingredients, and I really appreciate that they used the good stuff in this product. I think it's a great moisturizer.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment

This healing ointment has protected my lips from stress from UV rays (because lips become aged, too!) A tiny dollop on my fingertip keeps them super hydrated and soft all day long.

Dove Quench Absolute Anti-Frizz Serum

I loved the fresh smell of this product! It's perfect for summer. Not too heavy, not too light, but right in the middle. Gave my curls a soft hold and definition.
I used the product when my hair was slightly damp. I finger combed it through my coils. I don't typically use serums but figured it was worth a shot since it was specifically a creme serum.

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion

This styler has a thick consistency and plenty of hold, which I found is great for elongating my curls. Not only is a great for wash and go’s, but I have had much success using it as a heat protectant during the blow-dry process before flat ironing. This product pairs well with the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in Conditioner for twice the amount of moisture and strength.
