Walmart Beauty Box isn’t the most exciting box to get every quarter, but it’s only $5 and a good way to get some travel basics. They base each box on the age you put when signing up – sometimes I get a few of the same things as my mom and sometimes she gets a completely different box. I actually never even shop at Walmart (I prefer Target), but it lets me try out a few new things now and then.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes – I’m not a huge fan of cleansing wipes – I feel like they never get everything off and I should still be washing with water. They can be good if you’re traveling, too tired, or want to get some eye makeup off though.
Aussie Mega Hairspray – I really disliked the scent of this hairspray, so much so that it gave me a headache throughout the day. I haven’t smelled or used anything by this brand probably since high school and now I remember why. This is not a brand I would ever buy or use.
Schick Hydro Silk Disposable Razor – Wow this is a great full size product to get in a box! Razor heads can get expensive so this is really good to have on hand.
Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara – I haven’t tried this one out yet but if I never had to buy another mascara again I wouldn’t be sad. Mascara is a sub box staple!
Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 – I love the high SPF in this and it is lightweight. A solid daily moisturizer (although not very exciting). It is white and slightly smells like sunscreen but that is not an issue for me.
Dove Advance Care Deodorant – This is not my preferred brand but it is nice to have a travel size.
ACT Advanced Care Mouthwash – Mouthwash is not something I use on a daily basis but maybe I’ll work it in before date night or going to the dentist!
As usual there are several coupons and foil packet samples including Crest, Nivea, Biore and Jergens. I think the razor was the best product in the box. I don’t love this subscription but for $5 I guess I will continue in hopes that one day I’ll get something I really like.
Happy Fourth of July to everyone! I’m spending the day working at Anthropologie then hanging with my family eating burgers and peach cobbler and watching fireworks. I love fireworks! I hope you have an amazing day celebrating this great nation!
The Walmart Beauty Box is a subscription that ships out seasonally. I never know when they’re going to come other than getting a shipping notification. The great thing is they’re only $5 – the bad thing is that this box was pretty terrible. I don’t think they’re doing a good job of showcasing exciting new products people want to go buy. Also this month I got a repeat…which is a no no in the sub box world. As usual I got the “younger” demographic box which there is still variations of.
Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream – This is for face and body and I like that it came in this little travel case. This is a nice normal lotion without a strong scent.
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Nourishing Anti-Dandruff Shampoo – I’ve tried this brand before and wasn’t wowed and I hate when shampoo samples don’t come with a conditioner. I can’t say I need anti-dandruff either.
St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub – This is a nice sized sample of a cult favorite face scrub. Even though I have a ton of face scrubs I’ll always take more!
NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York – Usually I’m all for a full size lip gloss (even though I have way too many) but this nude color just does not appeal to me. I like a little more color! I’ll try and trade this.
Dove Go Fresh Body Wash in Mandarin and Tiare Flower – This is the exact same body wash I got in my last box! I think my third sample of this too, so I’m getting a little tired of Dove body wash. Not that I won’t use this of course but I think they could use a little more imagination on box picks.
Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport Sunscreen SFP 70 – I think it sad that the thing I’m most excited about is a sunscreen. Now that summer is here I can use all the SPF I can get my hands on (so can my husband) so this is a great little travel tube. This is a brand I would normally buy too.
The box also included a sample of Jergens Natural Glow tanning lotion (gave it away in a swap as I like my skin the color it is already), coupons for Eco Tools brushes (don’t need any right now), and a sample of One Directions You & I Perfume (not pictured because I have already sampled it so I gave it to my friends little sister immediately). I appreciate these extras even though I won’t use any of them. Overall I think Walmart needs to step up it’s box game! For just $2 more the Target Beauty Box was amazing and full of products I would use. I have never gotten a nail polish in this box and I think that would be a great addition for the next one.
The Walmart Beauty Box comes once a season and is only $5 to cover shipping. So it’s a great deal depending on what you get and if you like the items. I’ve always been pretty happy with my product samples. Here’s what I got in my spring box which is the “younger” version. When you sign up you put in your birthday and I believe they send out two box variations based on age. My mom gets the other box variation and isn’t always as happy with it. I was happy with mine though!
Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara – I love a full size mascara! It covers the cost of the entire box. Thanks to sub boxes I won’t have to buy mascara for the next 2 years!
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser – I like the Neutrogena brand and this is supposed to boost softness, evenness and radiance. I love trying out new face washes so I will definitely give this one a try.
Lady Gaga Fame Perfume – I don’t love Lady Gaga or perfume samples but this one surprisingly smells ok! It’s kind of a dark and complicated scent (duh the perfume is black) and has notes of belladonna, tiger orchidea, incense, apricot, saffron, and honey drops.
Essence Ultime Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo – This has luxurious pearl essence (whatever that is) and rich omega oil. It is fast drying and for damaged, depleted hair. It has sulfates which some people say is not good for color treated hair (which mine is) but what the heck, I’ll still give this a try.
Essence Ultime Omega Repair & Moisture Conditioner – I’m glad they included the matching conditioner to try out.
Dove gofresh Nutrium Moisture in Mandarin and Tiare Flower Scent – This is a nice travel size with a fresh scent that I will definitely use.
They also included 7 coupons and three foil packets of products to try out. I’ll probably use at least one of these, but I wish one for Neutrogena had been included. I’m pretty happy with this box!
This is the second box I’ve gotten from Walmart for only $5 – it comes once a quarter. There are a couple different configurations based on your age group. I think the last box was a little better but this one still had some good products.
This shampoo and conditioner by L’Oreal is called Oleo Therapy and is sulfate free which is great for color treated hair. It says intense nutrition for a silky feel which sounds great! These will be great for travel.
I’ve seen this Jergens BB Body on a few beauty blogs this summer – I believe it was featured in Birchbox. It is supposed to even the tone of your body and I think has a slight tint to it which is weird to me. I decided to swap this. Usually I am very excited about lip products like this lipstick from Maybelline, however the color of this one is just not for me so I swapped it too!
It’s called Maple Kiss.
I will never complain about getting makeup removing wipes like these from Olay because these are great for traveling!
There were two small samples for Nivea body butter and Maybelline powder included. I’m looking forward to the next box!
So I’m not usually a huge Walmart fan – I’d much rather shop at the swanky Target. However when I heard they were selling a quarterly beauty box I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did! For only $5 (to cover shipping) I got some great stuff. The fall box sold out quick but you can sign up for the winter box which should have shipped this week!
I’ll never say no to a full sized deodorant that is worth more than the cost of the box! This is the brand I like anyway.
Even though this polish is full sized I can’t say I love this yellow color so into the swap pile it goes. At first I was really excited about this full sized Loreal lip balm but I have SO MANY lip products that I still haven’t opened this one. Thinking I will swap it too.
This is a cute little travel size hair oil which I tried and it was pretty good. I would never up and buy Nikki Minaj’s perfume but hey, now I get to try it. It’s subpar.
I used to really like Dove shampoos in college so this is a welcome addition for me. These are generous sized travel bottles that will be great for my next trip.
Foil packets womph womph…we were doing pretty good! The makeup was hard to test with such a tiny sample but it was good that they included many shades to ladies of all skin tones could sample. I have tried a sample of the Loreal Pore Vanisher thanks to a magazine before and I didn’t love it. Made my face feel a little more oily and I never feel like these types of products make my pores look any different.
So that’s it! I was happy with this box and can’t wait to see what the winter edition brings!
