Check it out! Have any of you ever heard of the new Walmart Beauty Box subscription? Well, I didn't either until about a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't believe it. I'm typically not your biggest fan of Walmart (the people of Walmart scare me just a little bit) but once I saw the words beauty + subscription + free in the same sentence I freaked! Now the subscription box is technically free but you do have to pay shipping which is just a flat rate of $5. Now let's get to the contents before I ruin the idea!
This is the Fall 2014 edition. The subscription is quarterly which means you'll be receiving a box each season (you'll also be charged for shipping for each quarter). I believe that this is the first box that has been distributed so far so check it out!
L'Oreal Paris Glossy Balm in Ginger Candy
COVERGIRL Glowing Nights Glosstinis in #LaserLight
Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Eau De Parfum
L'Oreal Paris YouthCode Pore Vanisher
Dove Pure Care Dry Oil
Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Shampoo
Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Conditioner
Secret Clinical Strength Completely Clean Deodorant
Neutrogena nourishing Long Wear makeup with coupon
The Dove shampoo and conditioner is certainly not for me considering I do not have fine, flat hair. However I will be enjoying the pure care dry oil since it consists of African macadamia oil and it feels great on my hair. I was please with the Secret deodorant because it surely costs more than the subscription itself since it's full sized and will save me time and money from heading out to purchase one.
I was happy to see two more full size items which was the L'Oreal lip balm and the COVERGIRL nail polish. However I do not like the color of the nail polish. I try to stay away from very dark colors on my nails during all seasons. The Neutrogena makeup will surely be passed on to someone who wants to sample them and possibly use the coupon since I currently do not wear any foundation. The perfume sample surprisingly smells pretty good so I'll possibly use it one day. I'm a bit hesitant about the pore vanisher since I don't have a big problem with my pore size.
Overall I was pleased with the Walmart Beauty Box subscription! Even though a couple of the products I won't be using, there was a great value of over $20 in the box and it only costs $5. Since it's only quarterly you can think of it as $20 a year. I consider this a pretty cheap way to score some drugstore brand products and for those who love beauty subscriptions. Some of them may be super useful and actually save you some money. I can't wait until Winter!
