I finally decided to jump ship from Birchbox after over two years of monthly beauty samples. While I loved all the unique and fun Birchbox beauty samples, it just got to be a bit much. I have a huge stack of the really cool boxes that I can’t bear to throw away! So I dropped my subscription and headed on over to Walmart’s site, where they have a quarterly beauty box. It’s actually ‘free’, but they charge $5.00 for shipping.
I finally got the Walmart box today, and it’s actually pretty cool, but I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t get any makeup products. From my understanding of other beauty ‘unboxers’, Walmart has two types of boxes based on age (over 30, and under 30). I guess the under-30 crowd gets the fun stuff like lipstick, mascara, and eye shadow; whereas the over-30 ‘old lady’ crowd gets the wrinkle creams, serums and restoring shampoos.
Welp, after opening my box it was clear that I am definitely in the geriatric crowd. Not a speck of makeup to be found, and I am a total makeup freak. Yes, I am almost 60 but old ladies like to wear makeup too! Nonetheless, the box had some pretty neat stuff that I will likely use. Here’s what I got:
L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo (1.7 oz) and Conditioner (1.7 oz) ~ Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula (1.7 oz) ~ Jergens BB Body Cream (1 oz) ~ Ken Paves Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner, and Conditioning mask (foil packets) ~ Lady Gaga Fame Black Fluid Perfume (sample spray bottle) ~ Burt’s Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Serum (foil packet) ~ Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream (foil packet).
Worth the price, most definitely, but is it too much too ask for a lipstick in my summer box? A mauve pink color will do quite nicely, thank you. 🙂
