Shopping with the Target Beauty Concierge

Been shopping at Target lately?  I hadn’t; but when I heard they were starting a new Beauty Concierge service, I ran down there as fast as I could!

In an effort to help women find the best products for their hair and skin, the Target Beauty Concierge will work with Target shoppers to provide personalized and unbiased information about the kinds of products that would best suit their needs.  These concierges are highly trained beauty specialists, who are familiar with all the beauty and hair care brands carried by Target.

Speaking of Brands

Bumble & Bumble Hair CareAre you a regular shopper in the beauty and hair care aisles at your local Target?  It’s been a while since I’ve shopped there at Target; and I guess I’ve been missing the boat!  Not only do they have Cover Girl, Maybelline and L’Oreal, they also carry JK Jemma Kidd, Pixi and Sonia Kashuk, among some of their beauty brands.  Their skin care lines include Neutrogena, Oil of Olay, Boots, Burt’s Bee’s and even a couple of organic lines.  Target even carries some great hair care brands, including Pantene, Bed Head and Bumble & Bumble.

Target Beauty Concierge to the Rescue!

beauty concierge available hoursWith so many brands on the shelves, how do you choose a new product to address your specific beauty issues?  Do you just go with your old stand-by, or are you looking for a new product or solution to a new problem?

I got the low-down from my local Beauty Concierge–Richelle Bonilla, at the Target in La Habra, California. The concierges are employed by a company, separate from Target; so they are able to maintain a “brand-agnostic” approach to solving your skin care, hair care or other beauty issues.

Although they don’t take appointments, you can find the sign in the beauty aisle that will post their available hours at each location; and the concierges are equipped with an IPad to instantly see whether the products you need or are looking for are in stock at that or another store.

Give the Target Concierge a Try

So the next time you find yourself wandering the beauty aisles in Target; look for the Target Concierge in the black apron.  Chances are, they will be there helping another shopper out with their make up,skin care or hair care dilemmas; and they’ll be happy to answer your questions too!

  1. Oh my gosh! I need this! I am HORRIBLE about choosing the best products for my age and skin type. So many products and each and every one of them confuses me. I’m also picky about price (read: I don’t want to spend $30 on an eyeliner pencil…I’m cheap!) so this would also help me make the best choices within my budget. Definitely going to keep an eye out for this next time I visit a Target in my area.

    • It really is a neat service; I was just talking with her about stuff & mentioned something about my hair. She suggested a product to try (Bed Head Sugar Dust) & I am LOVING it!

  2. This is the coolest thing. I had no idea and I am a regular Target shopper. I’m going to be checking this out for sure. 🙂

  4. This is really cool! I’ve been switching over to organic skin care and beauty products and so I was glad to see that Target carries some. I will have to go over there and check it out. Thanks

  5. Target is still new to Canada and our local Targets haven’t opened yet (coming soon!), but I hope they too will have a beauty concierge. Our pharmacies have worked out the value of having informed personnel in that section but its often challenging finding that kind of help in the big box stores.

    Wow. I shop at Target almost religiously but I have yet to see anybody in a black apron or advising shoppers. I will have to stop in and see if maybe I have missed this or haven’t been there to get these items recently although I think I have. That would be a great service regardless.

  8. Target is definitely one of my preferred stores, especially since I’ve sworn off WalMart because they won’t pay their employees a decent wage. I’ve noticed these beauty signs there, but since I’m usually shopping later in the day, I’ve yet to see someone on duty.

  9. I can’t wait for this to come to my local Target! I feel so clueless sometimes when I’m trying to buy something new in the beauty department. Having someone available to give you some advice would be so helpful!

  10. I think if more stores offered shoppers personalized and unbiased information about the kinds of products that they show use, business would improve, Having a beauty concierge at Target, what a concept

    I love that Target is carrying such a large selection of decently priced beauty products. I’m pretty good at choosing my own products but sometimes it’s nice just to have someone help a bit.

    • I usually go through, knowing what I want. But after talking with her, I tried that one new hair product that I’ve never even considered and just LOVE it; so I’m definitely sold on this great concept.
