Megan’s Walmart Beauty Box

IMG_3244
So I guess I’m on the later ship date for this since I just received my box the day Paige posted her review of it.   This box contained less makeup than the previous ones but it more than made up for it in other items that I really like.

Arm and Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste:
Well, not super exciting, but I love a good mint (none of that rubbish spearmint stuff please) and I do love travel sizes. I have to jump on planes often enough for work that these are super handy.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Medium:
Well, I am a HUGE fan of this. As someone who burns when they even think about going into full sunlight regardless of the SPF slathered on (yes, I am the person they make the 100 spf for…), I’ve known and used this product (in Fair) for years. It goes on easily (especially now that they have the lotion version instead of the spray that got everywhere) and once dried (and it dries quickly) stays where it should and not on your clothes. You won’t regret it. Bonus, it covers up those random bruises that you have no idea how they got there.
Burt’s Bees Lipstick in 511 Magenta Rush:
Not a color I ever would have chosen in the store but after having put it on, I actually really like it. It’s fun, not too orange, goes on really well, has good pigment, and was a little shines without being over powering. Good job Burt. I plan to get a more neutral shade the next time I’m at the store.

Incoco Coconut Nail Art in Fashion Statement #03505:
I’ve used these before and they go on pretty easily. I really like the pattern/colors on these and can see them being accent nails for black polish or something like that. The only warning I will give is that when using these, make sure your nails (the top of your nails) are really smooth. Make sure to clean, buff well, and dry leaving no dust or bumps. Anything left on your nail WILL be extremely visible once the strip is applied.

Schwarzkopf Shampoo and Conditioner Essence Ultime:
Thank you sending both the shampoo AND conditioner. Also, thank you for sending enough of a sample to actually be able to try it out. I’ve been seeing these commercials and am very interested to try it. I’ll report back.

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented:
Again, this is an item that I use already and really like. This will go into my travel stash as it is small enough to be carried on. LOVE the unscented-ness of it. It does everything it should and doesn’t let anyone but you know that it’s been applied.
IMG_3248
Nivea In Shower Lotion:
I think this is the third one of these I’ve received from various boxes and might actually have enough now to be able to try it. Maybe it’s just me, but this seems like a potentially bad idea. Wet tub floor plus very smooth, slick substance equals at best a bruise that is awkward to explain and at worst a trip to the ER. Wish me luck.

Paige’s Walmart Summer Beauty Box Review

imageThe 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.

Wow, these are horrible pics, aren’t they?

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.

2016-06-22-16.50.16.jpg.jpgGoody 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.

HMMM, I may have to rethink using my phone…

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?
