So…beauty Army has had a rough few months. It basically fell apart, got a new CEO, tried to get its subscribers to come back by giving multiple promises that things were different and vouchers for free boxes. I fully admit to being skeptical. The old Beauty Army had a very poor sample selection, hit and miss as to whether you actually got the samples you selected, and unreliable delivery.
The Walmart beauty box is a fun one. It’s seasonal, coming out every 3 months, but unlike Target, you can subscribe to it, and it’s only $5. I call that a pretty excellent deal, especially since even if I don’t use EVERYTHING, the value is definitely there.
InCoco Nail Art Stickers
Speaking of Value, these really got me excited. I love nail decals, and polish, and this style is especially fun. I can’t wait to try them.
Goody Slide Proof Hair Ties
I use and loose hair ties all the time, so these Goody Slide Proof were a great treat. (See? The box has already paid for it self) I’m in that super thick preggo hair mode right now, so I go through these really fast
I have received this Lady Gaga Fame perfume in other boxes
It’s not my favorite, because it’s super sultry, and rich. I prefer much lighter scents. I can see possibly wearing a very light splash out to a formal event or a ritzy date with the hubby, but it’s definitely not for every day wear on me.
Sally Air Brush Legs
I LOVE this stuff, I have been using the spray version for years! I hate wearing nylons and this is the perfect product when its too hot out for an extra layer. It makes legs super smooth looking, and spider veins are no more. Just make sure you let it dry COMPLETELY before you get dressed.
Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Diamond Color and Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner
Well. That’s a mouthful… I didn’t notice an immediate difference when I tried this out, but I also don’t have colored hair, and for right now, my hair is pretty healthy, other than needing a trim. That being said, it smelled OK, and I REALLY appreciate the fact that there are BOTH a shampoo and conditioner to try.
Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion
Lotion samples always come in really handy, and Vaseline makes a great product! not much more to say there…
Truly Radiant Clean and Fresh Toothpaste by Arm and Hammer
I like Toothpaste samples, and this is a good one. With as much as we travel, samples like this are super useful and this will be thrown in my stash for camping and traveling.
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water (one use)
This was a tiny (one use) sample. We call them foil packets, because you cant close them back up and essentially need to be used all at once. It was a nice little bonus, but it would probably not be something that I would buy because I like the act of washing my face. It relaxes me at the end of my day, and makes me feel cleaner. This was like putting on a toner, I didn’t feel like I got everything, and I used it on a day when I wasn’t wearing makeup at all.
Nivea In Shower Body Lotion (single use)
I use this stuff on a regular basis, because I’m constantly forgetting to put on lotion after I get out of the shower. This way it’s already in there with me and super easy to rub on, rinse off and BAM! Silky skin! This got used immediately.
I felt the box definitely paid for itself this season, although, I would have LOVED to have seen a makeup product this time around. What did you guys think of your boxes?
