WalMart Beauty Box – Spring

IMG_3826                      IMG_3827

I’ve been getting the WalMart Beauty Box for about a year now.  Unlike a lot of subscription boxes that come monthly, this box comes every three months.  You get one in the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.  The price of the box is $5 including shipping, which I think is a good deal since you typically get at least $3 in coupons in each box.

Since I live in a VERY rural area, the only makeup readily available to me is drugstore.  I order all my higher end makeup online or wait until I get near an Ulta or Sephora to go nuts 🙂  So I really like that I can try some less expensive skincare/bodycare/makeup for $5.  If this box is something that interests you, hear is a link to sign up for your own Walmart Beauty Box.

This month was obviously the Spring box, and I have to say, I think this was one of the best ones.  There is a ton of stuff in here!  Let’s start off with the card samples and coupons:

The first coupon at the top left (going clockwise), is a $1 off any Loreal True Match product.  I really like the True Match powder’s so I’ll probably use this.  One the back of the card there is a shade chart that looks really neat as well.

Next, is a Neutrogena coupon for $1 off any Acne product in their range.  This card also has a sample of the new Acne Correct and Cover Moisturizer.  It looks like a tinted moisturizer, so I’ll definitely give it a try.

Next, is sample of the Loreal Glow Renewal Facial Oil.  It says to use morning and night to restore a healthy glow to the skin.  Interesting.  I like facial oils and I don’t have one in my rotation right now.

There is a Vera Wang Embrace toilette spray sample.  Have to be honest…this is not my favorite scent.  However, I really love getting the spray perfume samples.  They’re great for travel!

The last card sample is the one I’m most excited about!  It’s the Burt’s Bees BB Cream in Light/Med.  I luuuuve Burt’s Bees products and I’ve been wanting to try this.  I’m pretty sure every Walmart box I’ve gotten has had a Burt’s Bees product in it, which makes me super happy.

Now let’s look at the bigger samples that were included:

Starting at the top, we have a Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color stick.  I am so excited about this item!  It’s a great size sample (just a little smaller than the full size), and the color (110 Almond Nude) is fantastic.  I will definitely be getting some use out of this.

Next is the Curel Itch Defense Body Wash.  I have used Curel products in the past, but not this particular one.  It’s formulated for dry skin, so I think my husband will like it.  The sample is 1 oz which is perfect for travel.

Jergens Natural Glow in fair to medium, a 2 oz size is the next sample.  Again, this is great for travel.  I’ve used several bottles of this stuff over the years.  I love the way it gives my skin a natural looking tan without having to worry about streaking.

The Colgate Optic White toothpaste is a huge tube for a “sample”.  Colgate is a brand that we use often in our house.  The tube is 1.45 oz, which again, is great for travel for a family of three.

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette shampoo in a 2 oz bottle.  I’m really excited to try this!  I only wash my hair 2-3 a week so I like to use a really good shampoo on those days.  I haven’t tried this one but I think the idea that’s it’s made for brunette’s (which I am).

This is the one I’m least excited about.  It’s the CeraVe Healing Ointment.  I’m not really sure when or why i would use this.  Maybe on a scrape or bruise…It’s a really thick consistency like a balm.  I know CeraVe products are typically pricey for drugstore so I’ll keep it in my drawer just in case.

The last one is the Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser.  I love Biore strips for blackheads and I keep those in my beauty drawer all the time.  I’ve never tried one of their cleansers so I’m pretty stoked about this sample.  It’s 1 oz, so it’s large enough to try it multiple times to really get a good idea of the results.

 

Well, that’s it for my Spring Walmart Beauty Box.  I’m really happy with this box for $5!  The lip product and toothpaste are worth that just by themselves.  What do you guys think?  Do you like the drugstore boxes?  Have you tried any of these products?

Thanks for reading!
