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. Walmart now lets you select either the “classic” profile or the “trendsetter” profile. I just let mine be the classic profile and didn’t alter anything in my account.
The box said these items will help you define your beauty into full bloom. Or to nurture your wilting flower! Ok, it didn’t really say that.
It seems like it’s an improvement from the box last quarter.
Here are all the items in the Walmart Beauty Box this Spring.
Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White ($1.91) Yay for toothpaste! I’m definitely testing this out immediately! It has double the hydrogen peroxide and is supposed to give you quick results.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (57¢) Cetaphil is a great gentle skin cleanser. Nice to see a solid classic in this box!
Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Nourishing Monoi Oil ($1.30) I’m kind of a fan of in-shower moisturizers because it cuts down on a step and a lot of drying time. The moisturizer is formulated to blend with water on your skin on contact.
Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream and Daily Moisturizer – These come in an Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Facial Care Starter Kit for $7.99. Although it didn’t have the outer packaging it was nice to get an entire starter kit, and it claims to give you younger looking skin in a week!
RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck, & Face Cream ($2.37) Oh I like this because it’s primarily for smoothing fine lines on the chest and neck! I don’t think there’s enough décolletage creams in boxes!
Vera Wang Embrace Rose Buds & Vanilla ($1) This is a nice scent although I’m not a huge fan of rose (and it will be regifted to my MIL!). I was pleased they included a sample with a spritzer instead of a vial. Hey Birchbox, if Walmart can do it, so can you!
Banana Boat Sun Comfort Sunscreen Lotion ($1.58) Well I’m looking forward to testing this out on the beach. It’s water resistant yet formulated to relieve sand- and sun-related dryness and to help sand brush off easily. Sounds like a miracle sunscreen!
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick ($7.03 – thanks Susan!) I forgot to check the packaging, I don’t think this is quite full size (which is $8.79). This lip sheen is meant to moisturize and provide a touch of color while conditioning your lips. It’s made with mango and shea butter and the scent is yummy!
This was a decent color on me. I’m not a fan of nudes with my skintone but this was alright (that’s pretty high praise from me for a nude-ish color!).
And loads and loads of foil packets. Out of all of them, I was really excited about the pink grapefruit moisturizer, because it smells like grapefruit! These are all fun to test out and I didn’t feel like I had to value them like I did last time (because there was basically nothing in that box!).
What did you think about your box? Mine had a value of nearly $24, which was excellent, and it was so so so much better than the previous quarter. With a box like my Spring box, I could almost recommend a subscription, but the last box was such a real burn!
Just like @grayseahorsey mentioned not that great of a box ? No wonder it’s $5. You’re basically paying for shipping because a huge company as Walmart is these samples are basically free for them and free advertisement for them. I ended up paying for free samples what a waste and it’s not even like its premium samples ? #walmartbeautybox #walmartbeautyboxwinter2016 #makeupaddict #makeupjunkie #makeupreview #minireview #loreal #niveausa #aussiehair
(And there’s always a but with this box…) But the Spring 2016 Walmart Beauty Box in the Trendsetter profile was not nearly as good! Now there will be variations as the quarter progresses (it takes Walmart quite some time – months – to ship out all the boxes) but this version of the younger profile just doesn’t have the value that I can see that the Classic box did. Happily for me I’ll use nearly everything in this box, and it’s only $5 a quarter.
