I just recently received this quarter’s Walmart Beauty Box – I sure do love seeing the email come through that a new one has been shipped. It’s so effortless to sign up for subscriptions and so fun to get them in the mail, but as I’ve said before, I do still get a little nervous about not knowing what will be in the box. But hey, it’s only $5….and here’s what I got in the Spring 2015 Walmart Beauty Box!
This one had a little bit of everything…and some extra coupons.
I was super excited to see a full sized mascara in there, as I have been on the hunt for the perfect mascara for basically most of my life…which is mostly my excuse for trying new ones all the time. This one was the Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara in my favorite: Black.
I was a little nervous at first because the brush looked tiny, but they do a good job of reaching in between each lash. This was a decent mascara and although it didn’t make my lashes super long, I will continue to use the rest of the container before jumping to a new one
Sample sizes included:
-Lady Gaga Fame Black Fluid perfume
-Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser
-Schwarzkopf essence Ultime Shampoo & Conditioner
-Dove Go Fresh Body Wash
A little about each item:
I had wondered if this was the perfume I remember reading about with essenses of “human sweat, sex, blood, and other things weird” and while the description was certainly strange, the scent itself wasn’t scary haha. I would never be able to explain what a scent smells like, but the description is notes of atropa belladonna, tiger orchid, incense, apricot, saffron and honey. It wasn’t strong and would be ok for everyday wear, in my opinion.
This has white tea and vitamin E. IT felt nice on my skin, lathered really well, only required a small amount (much less than my current cleanser) and made my skin feel soft, not dry, afterward.
It was kind of weird having a picture of Claudia Schiffer on the bottles, and the bottles themselves made it almost impossible to get the shampoo and conditioner out. While the scent was nice and light, the conditioner was way too thin to coat my hair. The shampoo was ok. I wouldn’t buy these and may not even finish using the conditioner.
I really liked the scent – nectarine and white ginger/flower. The citrusy scent was so invigorating in the morning…I need all the help I can get to wake up!
So, after three Walmart Beauty boxes, I’ve come to the realization that I’m definitely picky when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. I guess that comes from working in a salon when I was younger and knowing what good shampoo and conditioner feels like and how it affects my hair. The frugality in me comes out often, when sometimes I try to save money and try something else, but I usually regret it (except I am in love with my current Kirkland shampoo and conditioner from Costco – it feels like salon quality but is super cheap).
I hope you enjoyed seeing the goodies I got this quarter!
