Walmart Beauty Box is a quarterly sample box – just $5 for the shipping and handling. It is not my favorite beauty box (I prefer Birchbox – you can get high end samples monthly for the same price after points – see my last Birchbox reviews), or another of the beauty boxes once in a while for the same price, and come home with full size and deluxe samples. But if you want a sampling experience for items you can buy at Walmart, this is your box.
Remember that I’m over 35, so I get the “old lady box” based on my profile. Some people call it the “classic” box and the box for younger women the “trendy” box.
This box was frankly terrible!
Nspa by Nirvana Spa Exotically Creamy Coconut Rich Body Butter ($3.75 on Amazon, $1.37 at Walmart) This is a nice smelling product, but I didn’t understand why it had mineral oil in it or any of the other weird ingredients. It’s a cream, not a body butter. It will go for my husband’s feet (he’s using mineral oil heel things right now for his feet).
Pantene Pro-V Style Series Extra Strong Hold Hairspray: This product appears to be no longer on the market and has been replaced by Pro-V Stylers Anti-Humidity Maximum Hold Hairspray (32¢). I felt like this was confusing, although it’s likely the same exact formula. I felt that this was better suited for a summer box and would have liked to see a flexible hold hairspray for winter.
Pure Silk Rich & Luxurious Shave Cream – Raspberry Mist (83¢ on Drugstore.com, 50¢ at Walmart) This moisturizing shave cream smells good and has aloe!
This box (generously) has $4.90 in products in it – $2.19 if you use the Walmart prices.
I got a card swatch set for Clairol Root Touch up (includes $2 coupon), a $5 coupon for Women’s Rogaine Foam.
A sample of Jennifer Aniston the Fragrance ($3 coupon), Loreal Paris True Match $1 Coupon (and a peel thing that you put over your skin to see if it matches – no product), Cover Girl Star Wars booklet with $3 off 2 eye products coupon (seriously?), Save $3 on any ROC anti-aging product, and $3 off any one Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Cleanser or Moisturizer, plus a tone perfecting cream sample (25¢).
I do not typically value small foil packets of inexpensive products, but giving all benefit of the doubt, this box had a maximum value of $1.38 in the foil samples, so $3.57 according to Walmart pricing (or $6.28 if you use internet pricing). This was totally unacceptable!

I believe the above box is the winter box for younger women.

This box with cotton swabs would have been an upgrade on mine!
