Walmart Beauty Box Summer 2017 Review – Classic Box

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Walmart Beauty Box is a quarterly sample box – just $5 for the shipping and handling. If you want a sampling experience for items you can buy at Walmart, this is your box!

I’m over 35, so I get the Classic based on the age in my profile. See the full spoilers for the Trendsetter box here.

Here are all the items in the Walmart Beauty Box this summer. Do note that this box ships out over months and months, and items may vary. I get my box at the beginning of the shipping wave.

Pond’s MoistureClean Original Fresh Towelettes (76¢) These cleansing cloths are textured and stay wet, and even a little sudsy, for the entire cleansing process. This is more for heavy duty cleaning than cleaning and refreshing in my opinion – great for travel, but if you were to use these as home, I think you might as well use a regular makeup remover and cleanser.

Burt’s Bees Night Cream With Royal Jelly ($0.57) I was happy to get a night cream sample in the box because I really needed one to apply right away, and I ripped this one open. I felt like it left a bit of residue on my skin, but it was soothing and moisturizing.

Banana Boat Dry Balance Sunscreen Lotion With SPF30 ($1.83)  This sunblock dries with a soft matte finish to help avoid the sticky feeling you get with some sunblocks and to encourage sunscreen application. It’s water resistant and has a beachy sort of spa scent and definitely has more of a matte finish than other formulations. This product does contain parabens.

Dove Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo ($0.90) I can always use dry shampoo and I was happy to receive one that was designed for my hair type! I don’t love the scent but it works and it’s cheap. It’s a good daily basic.

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo ($0.52)

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner ($0.52)

I always like getting a matching set! I know a lot of people hate Pantene but I love having a throwback day or two with that familiar Pantene smell, and I always use my Pantene samples!

RoC Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream Sunscreen With SPF 30 ($1.87) This is a nice little sunscreen with a non-noxious scent (although it is scented) that settles on pretty clear and matte. It’s a great choice for an under-makeup sunscreen.

The value of this box was about $7 – barely above the price of the box. I had been happier with the past couple of quarters, but it looks like Walmart Beauty Box is back to being something that I can’t say is worth the money if you have a limited budget for your beauty box allocations. Why not let your money go way farther on another box that will give you multiples value-wise of what you put into it?! There is also a lot of duplication from the Trendsetter box last quarter, and all the Target Beauty Boxes over the last 3-4 months.

FYI – in place of the Burt’s Bees sample, some subscribers received coconut oil, others received deodorant.

What did you think of the Classic Walmart Beauty Box this quarter?
