I love the WalMart Beauty Box. They’re $5, shipped I believe four times a year. Subscribe here, if you’re interested!
I’m not sure why I love this box so darn much. I’m always really impressed with it. Yes, they’re drugstore brands. Yes, some of these samples I could theoretically be getting for free. But I’m always completely satisfied, creeping up on delighted. I have been told that not everyone gets as spectacular a box as I do, so I consider myself… I dunno, smiled upon by the Waltons?
Dove GoFresh Nutrium Moisture in Mandarin & Tiare Flower – Whoa, wait a minute! That’s a repeat! Luckily, I really liked this, so okay fine I’ll deal. The scent is slightly citrusy, slightly woody. I used my last bottle and really enjoyed it.
Nivea Soft Face|Body|Hands Moisturizing Creme – It comes in this wonderful little container, which I fully intend to reuse when this sample runs out–that’s a first! This creme is really buttery. It feels a little greasy and it’s got a slightly floral scent, which is just not my preference, but it’s an okay product and I’m glad I got to sample it.
Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy – This is a dandruff shampoo. It smells really pleasant in the bottle, but slightly medicinal in the shower. My hair felt really nice after using it. I can smell a slight hint of the scent (kind of unisex, actually) and a little lingering dandruff shampoo smell, but it’s not bad.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub – Angels were singing when I pulled this out of the box. This is a long-time fave product of mine. It’s an exfoliant using pulverized apricot pits. It smells pretty neutral, but always leaves my skin feeling awesome. I love that it’s not plastic beads.
NYC Liquid Lipshine in Fashion Avenue Fuschia (full size) – This packs more pigment than you expect, but it’s actually a fairly wearable pink. It’s got a bit of glitter in it that makes it kind of gritty to me. Looking at these, though, I’m actually interested to try their clear…
Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen SPF 70 – For me, SPf 70 is so important! I don’t know what “cool dry” is supposed to mean, but it did have a nice less-greasy feel on the skin and seemed really nice. I haven’t tried this in the sun yet, but I think it’s a good sunscreen.
One Direction Our Moment Perfume – I hate perfume samples because I hate perfume, and celebrity perfumes are usually the worst. I didn’t even give this a whiff.
Jergen’s Natural Glow Self Tanner – This is meant to be a really gradual fake bake. Eh, sample packets, ya know?
Also included were coupons for makeup brushes – Cool, and there’s a real chance I’ll use this!
