WalMart

Summer 2017 WalMart Beauty Box

It’s that time again! Just received my Summer WalMart Beauty Box. This season’s theme is “Radiate Your Beauty. You are a force to be reckoned with.”  Isn’t it ironic?  Here’s what I got for the $5 shipping fee.

WMart beauty box

5ml of Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer. No parabens, mineral oil, glutens, dyes or sulfates. I’ll be interested to see how it does under makeup during the humid Western Pennsylvania summer!

1ml of Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil. Same “No’s” as above. I’m a huge fan of facial oils, love to use them as my last step of night time skin care. They can also be used to salvage hard, dried up cosmetics. This product has 9 natural oils in it:  extra virgin coconut, Tahitian monoi, sweet almond, macadamia, argan, grapeseed, maracuja, sunflower, apricot and sesame. Same concerns as above – Western PA summers are not always a girl’s best friend.

5 count package of Pond’s Original Fresh Makeup Removing Towelettes. These are a cult favorite of several You Tube beauty gurus that I follow constantly. I cannot wait to try these, but I’m putting them aside for my vacation. They’re going right in my beauty train case.

5ml of ROC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck and Face Cream. I’m way late on the Retinoid bandwagon, so this is an excellent way to try it. I even convinced my Mom to give me her sample!

1.7oz of Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. Pantene products can go either way for me, but it’s a nice, convenient size that is also going in my train case. If my hair falls out on vacation I’ll have no one to blame but myself!

1oz of Banana Boat Dry Balance Sunscreen lotion. I’m taking this to Lake Erie soon. It says it has a soft matte finish, 80 minutes water resistant and skin breathes easily. As important as sunscreen is (the MOST important beauty product in the history of beauty products) it can be a pain to find one that doesn’t irritate your skin or make you break out. I have high hopes for this as Banana Boat is a well-respected brand.

You truly cannot go wrong with these Walmart boxes. It’s nothing fancy or high end but well worth the $5 price tag. The sizes are large enough to give you ample time to test them out to see how they are going to work for you.  They ship four times a year and are all seasonally based. I definitely recommend giving these a try!

Spring 2017 WalMart Beauty Box

box

There are so many subscription boxes on the market these days. You can get monthly or seasonal boxes containing everything from health and beauty items, fitness and pet supplies to ready-to-prepare meals.  While the prices vary considerably, one of the most inexpensive boxes to try is the seasonal WalMart Beauty Box.  It comes out four times a year and you pay only a $5 shipping charge.

Now remember, this is from WalMart, so you will not be getting any high-end health and beauty supplies.  Each box has a retail value of at least $15 and has a variety of drug store products.  The Spring 2017 box included the following:

  • 1.7 oz Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Repair Shampoo and Conditioner Extreme Damage Repair
  • SOO AE Nature Collagen Essence Sheet Mask in Vitamin Pure Brightening
  • Pure Ice Nail Polish in Tickle Me Pink
  • 2 oz   Jergen’s  Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer in Fair to Medium Skin Tones
  • .75 oz Colgate Optic White Beauty Toothpaste
  • 1.5 oz Ban Powder Fresh Roll On Antiperspirant/Deodorant
  • 2 oz   Soap Box Sea Minerals Body Wash with Shea Butter

I have wanted to try the Gliss shampoo and conditioner for months, as Claudia Schiffer is the spokesmodel for the brand.  Who doesn’t want Claudia Schiffer’s bouncy, shiny hair?  If it’s good enough for her, then I’m all in!  The size of the bottle will get my ear length curly bob at least 3 if not 4 uses. It’s highly concentrated, so I needed very little and it made my hair soft, shiny, and extremely manageable. I loved it and will definitely be purchasing the larger sized bottles in the future.

I have used SOO AE Nature Sheet Masks before, so I knew I would enjoy this brightening version.  They are easy to apply, stay in place on your face, work well and are an excellent way to relax and chill out for at least 20 minutes.

The Pure Ice Nail Polish is a pretty, soft pink shade, perfect for spring and summer. You can even manage to do a French manicure with this color.

The Jergen’s Moisturizer was the only bust for me.  Even after multiple uses, it didn’t add any color at all to my skin.  I have always had trouble with fake tanning and any product that promises to add color, however light, to my skin.  So I shouldn’t be surprised or disappointed, yet I was. The only thing it managed to do was make my shower floor slippery and dangerous.  So I’ll pass on this.

The remaining products, toothpaste, deodorant, and body wash will be going into my travel bag. They are the perfect products and sizes to save for out of town trips.

For the price of your morning latte, you can get an impressive selection of sample-sized, drug store beauty products.  Each seasonal beauty box retails for around $15, so this is a steal.  Plus, you can go back to the Walmart site, www.beautybox.walmart.com and order additional boxes (as long as they are available), and you should receive different products.   This Dark Side Diva is very impressed with WalMart’s Spring Beauty Box!
