I have to admit, I am not the biggest fan of beauty subscription boxes. I like them, but I seem to end up with a bunch of stuff that I never use and I hate to create excess and waste. I have been able to give a lot of it away to people who will use it. I’ve been able to donate my Ipsy bags to a friend who used them to create little gifts to give to the women’s shelter. Other smaller trial sized products have gone into bags for the homeless. So, it wasn’t a total loss for me at all.
There is one beauty box that I get four times a year and I always end up using everything in it. For $5 it is such a steal.
Check out the Fall 2016 Walmart beauty box to get another glimpse of what this beauty box has to offer.
Let’s check out this months beauty box haul.
I love makeup. I have friends who are obsessed with their makeup. They stalk Ulta, Sephora and other retailers, waiting for new releases. They have a wish list a mile long. My wish list is pretty short. There was a time when I felt myself going down this path, but I quickly realized I just don’t switch up my makeup like that. I do have a few eye shadows I love, like Urban Decay, and when I am going someplace special, I will do my eyes. But, for everyday wear, I don’t take the time to use eye shadow. One thing I DO tend to purchase quite a few of are mascaras (and lippies.) I am always looking for the biggest, baddest eyelashes.
My favorite is Urban Decay Perverssion mascara ($22) with the Urban Decay Subversion lash primer ($20) They are a little spendy, but totally WORTH every penny. My eyelashes pop without the need of falsies. Since they are a bit spendy, I save these for special occasions.
That is why I am always on the lookout for other mascaras. I have heard some great things about this CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume mascara. According to CoverGirl it has up to 10X more volume. One thing I noticed right away that was different was that the last brush is plastic instead of the traditional fiber brush. I can’t wait to test this out.
Pond’s Rejuveness is my favorite anti-wrinkle face cream. I received this product in a Walmart beauty box some time ago and have been using it ever since. I am a former Olay user. Pond’s reminds me of my grandmother as she used their cold cream faithfully for years. Great line of products. Not to say anything bad about Olay, I just prefer this anti-wrinkle cream so much more. So, I am thrilled they sent me another one because mine was almost out 😉
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt: Vanilla and Oats Lotion is a new product for me. I have used various Aveeno products in the past. Some worked out, some didn’t. I love their oat body lotion. When I first moved to Michigan it was my go-to in order to battle the winter weather. I haven’t had a lot of good luck with their facial lotions as they always seem to cause breakouts. I have never used their body yogurt so I am excited to give this a try. It smells amazing !
Dove Go Fresh Nutrium Moisturizing Body Wash: Mandarin and Flare Flower is another new product for me. Last beauty box Walmart sent Sweet Cream with Peony scent. I love Dove products and generally use them all when they are sent, but I can’t deal with Peony scent so that went into the ‘to donate’ bin. This one will be the same because I am also not a fan of citrus or flower smelling body washes. It will go into the ‘to donate’ pile. If citrus and/of flower are your thing, you will probably like this combination.
Dove also sent a sample strip containing their new Advanced Hair Care Series – Quench Absolute. There is a shampoo, conditioner, and intense restoration mask.
You guys! I am super stoked to try this Curel HydraTherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ! I have been seeing quite a few of these in-shower moisturizing lotions and have been wondering how well they worked. Michigan wrecks my skin in the winter and I have tried so many different solutions. Problem is, when I find one, the stores stop carrying it. 🙁 I am excited that this beauty box contains a decent sample size and even a $4 coupon!
Thoughts: This months beauty box has pretty much a full stack of things I will be using. The only thing I wont is the Dove body wash. For $5 this box is worth it just for that Pond’s anti-wrinkle cream. A++ Walmart. You did not disappoint.
Are there products here you would like to try? Have you already tried some of them?
