I’ve been subscribed to Walmart’s Beauty Box for about a year now, and I’ve always been pleased with their health and beauty offerings. Well, maybe not that one time when there was not one makeup item to be had, but I digress. Walmart beauty boxes come seasonally, four times per year. At $5.00 per pop, it is just the right amount. The monthly $10 Birchbox subscription that I had for two years got to be a bit much for me.
My Spring 2016 Walmart box came last week, and I am quite pleased with it. Like most of Walmart’s boxes it is heavy on the health/skin care side, rather than the makeup/beauty side. It did come with a Neutrogena Moisture Smooth color stick in Almond Nude. I thought it would be dry and colorless, but it turned out to be very moist and glossy with a nice hue. Score one for the makeup department!
There was a 1.25 oz tube of Colgate’s Optic White Express White, which is a generous amount. But I will not be trying this as I am on a very specific toothpaste/rinse routine for my teeth. I’ll pass this on to someone who is game to try it.
The other samples were all skin care: Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash, Banana Boat Sun Comfort 30 SPF Sunscreen, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, and ROC Chest, Neck and Face Cream. Good choices, and I’ll be using all of them.
