Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2016 Review

What is Walmart Beauty Box?

Walmart Beauty Box is seasonal box that you can subscribe to that sends makeup samples, bath and body care samples, and hair care samples. They can be full sized, deluxe sized, and sometimes the dreaded foil packets.

They now have a Classic Box and a Trendsetter Box and you can subscribe to both with the same email account.

Details of THIS Box

This Walmart box is the Spring 2016 box and is the Trendsetter Box.

The Box

Here is what it looks like when it arrives on your doorstep. I LOVED the sunflower on the box. It has always been one of my favorite flowers and how do you not just smile looking at it?

And here it is opened! I love when tissue paper is covering the items in the box.

The Products

Colgate Optic White Platinum High Impact White Tooth Paste (3.0 oz FULL SIZE!) - $3.99

I just love receiving teeth whitening samples for free because my teeth are naturally yellow, so I am always on the lookout for new things to try. This one I haven't tried yet and am very excited to! Says I should notice a difference in three days so we will see if that's the case. And this is a full size sample! unlike the Winter box where I got foil packet whitening toothpaste. Love this!!

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Nourishing Manoi Oil (2 fl oz) - $1.39

This moisturizer smells floral and not like just some random lotion/moisturizer.  It's supposed to be applied when you're still wet after showering because they claim that is when your body is more likely to absorb the moisturizer. I tried it when my hands were dry (not knowing I needed to be wet) and it seemed to work well. Curious to see what it will do when I use it correctly. I saw while searching for a price that they have a coconut oil one too. I might have to just go buy that!

Dove Dry Oil Moisture Nourishing Body Wash Nutrium Moisture (1.8 fl oz) - $0.45

This is a body wash so it is supposed to be used differently than the Jergens moisturizer. I can't wait to see how this one feels after! I expect to feel moisturized and smooth after my shower. Finger's crossed this works! Target claims it is their #1 Dermatologist Recommended body wash so I have high hopes.

Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick Pink Grapefruit (.08 oz FULL SIZE) - $7.99

When I first saw this I didn't think I would like it. It looked too pink for my skin. However when I applied it to my lips it also worked quite nicely! And I didn't notice it had a scent until I applied it. It smelled amazing! So I really liked this product. Now I just need to get used to wearing stuff on my lips. I have attached a photo of myself wearing this product. I like it!

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream (0.5 fl oz) - $5.87

Wow I was surprised at how expensive this stuff is full size! I am really excited to try this one. And maybe it will work on my super dry wrinkly hands :P . But in all seriousness I am excited to try this. I love that I am getting all of these moisturizers and restorative creams in my boxes lately. They must be reading my mind or something. I think this is a product that made the box worth it. I can try an expensive product at a cheaper price to see how I like it. 

Curel Rough Skin Rescue (0.7 fl oz) - $0.26

This lotion just smells like lotion. No fun scents associated with it, which is kind of a bummer. However I LOVE this lotion. I might have to buy more. It absorbs well, wasn't oily, and made my hands feel soft. 

Banana Boat Sun Comfort SPF 30 Sun Screen (1 fl oz) - $1.24

Even though this sunscreen probably isn't as strong as I need it to be (I need SPF 50) it's still sunscreen and better than nothing. This couldn't have been timed more perfectly. It has been warmer here so my daughter and I are spending more time outside. I have sunscreen for her but not for me!

Final Thoughts

First let's calculate the total value of this box.

  • Colgate Optic White Platinum Tooth Paste (3.0 oz FULL SIZE!) - $3.99
  • Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer (2 fl oz) - $1.39
  • Dove Dry Oil Moisture Nourishing Body Wash (1.8 fl oz) - $0.45
  • Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick (.08 oz FULL SIZE) - $7.99
  • Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream (0.5 fl oz) - $5.87
  • Curel Rough Skin Rescue (0.7 fl oz) - $0.26
  • Banana Boat Sun Comfort SPF 30 Sun Screen (1 fl oz) - $1.24

Total Value = $21.19

For a $5 box, that's a good value! And better yet I will be able to use every product in this box, unlike last season's. And better yet, TWO of the samples were full size! I was very satisfied with this box and I can't wait for the next one!
