Walmart Summer Beauty Box Review



I recently subscribed to Walmart's Beauty Box and am excited to share thoughts on my first box with you today!  Unlike Target's Beauty Box, which is a one time purchase, Walmart offers a seasonal subscription.  It's marketed as a free box, you pay only for shipping and handling, which is a flat $5 fee.  

Let's get to the deets of what I found inside this first box...


S A M P L E S


Samples included were: 

-  L'OREAL Paris Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo, Restoring Conditioner, and Ceramide

-  Simple Micellar Cleansing Water sample + coupon for $2.00 off any one Simple Micellar Water Cleansing product (excludes trial & travel sizes)

-  Burt's Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Serum with Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex

-  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel



F U L L   S I Z E   P R O D U C T S



-  Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum 

-  Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick // Shade:  Gladiolus



My Thoughts


The Full Size Products:  

Does that lipstick look familiar to anyone?  That's right, I received the exact same lipstick and shade in my Target Beauty Box earlier this summer!  I have to admit I was a little bummed that it wasn't a different shade as it's always fun to try something new.  Had I not received it already I would have been thrilled about it though, so no complaints are valid there!  

Immediately when I opened the box I picked up a strong cocoa butter type of scent from the lotion.  I personally love that as it reminds me of summertime.  When my husband arrived home I asked him what he thought when he opened the box and he said, "Coconut.  Eww!"  (He and I differ on our view of coconut by the way. ;))  Either way, I loved the scent.  However, when I applied it I had two different thoughts.  Wow, this stuff really does help my dry skin!  Shortly followed by, Wowza!  This perfumed fragrance is a bit much!  I'd read several reviews of people unhappy with the way this lotion smells.  It is a tad overwhelming at first.  I think I will likely use it though, as I believe it's claim of moisturizing to heal and soothe rough, cracked skin to be true.  We'll see. ;)

As for the samples, I look forward to giving them a try.  I do love the opportunity to try different things without going out and purchasing a full size product.  Hopefully one of them will be a new-to-me gem!


The Subscription:  

Overall I was pleased with this box.  The lotion or lipstick alone would have cost me more than the $5 I paid.  Please note that the items included in each box vary.  For example, being 36 I received the Burt's Bees product that's said to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles.  If you're reading this review and 22, I'm guessing you'll receive something a bit more fun and youthful! ;)  


Will I keep this subscription or unsubscribe?

Being that it's $5 just four times a year I think I will keep this subscription, at least for the time being.  While I didn't enjoy it as much as I do the Target Beauty Boxes, I do feel like it was still a value.  We'll see what the fall box has in store!  Let me know if you're interested in seeing an open box and review when it arrives in a few months.

  1. I have seen that Burt's Bees eye cream and I am curious about it. Even thought you just received a sample of it, I would love to hear what you think about it. :-) I used to use Loreal shampoo and I switched to Sauve. Their latest line of products in the gold bottles is fantastic and its cheaper than the Loreal. Anyways, fun hearing about this beauty box and I hope that you are having a great week! :-)

  2. I always feel out of the loop with these things. Where do you even see the Target one! I was thinking of trying to snag whatever one comes out towards the fall.

Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
