Wal-Mart Beauty Box is a subscription box delivered once per quarter. The items are given to you free of charge, and you pay $5 for the shipping. Your first $5 charges when you subscribe, and a box from the current season will ship to you within a few weeks. Future boxes will incur the $5 charge as the box ships. My fall box arrived yesterday. There is usually some variety in boxes based on the age of the recipient. If you’re unhappy with your box, you can try adjusting your age up or down before canceling.
The Box looked a little beat up when it arrived, but everything inside seemed fine.
It was obvious right away that I got the “old lady box.” There are times I do not mind getting products for older people, and this is one of them.
Walmart does not have traditional product card, but there is a little card stating which season the box is from.
It also asks you to share your box online.
Before I even got to the goodies, I was happy to see all the inserts. This one is for a contest.
There are some nice coupons as well. I do not factor coupons into my box value, but I love receiving them. Some of my past boxes have not been as fruitful, so four coupons is a score (even if I only use one).
I opened everything up to show this box was pretty full even when it was all opened.
The item that screams old lady to me is the Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum. Some of my wrinkles are starting to get deep, so I am thankful this 1.0oz full-sized product worth $15.98. I also love when one item takes me far above and beyond what I paid for the box. This brand is new to me. Even though I’ve seen the ads for years and considering partaking, I never did. Now, I can. Wal-Mart Beauty boxes seem to have a theme that at least one full size item is in each box.
I do not place value on foils, but this Crest 3D White Brilliance Daily Cleansing Toothpaste and Whitening Gel sample was the next thing to jump out at me. This is a product I sampled for BzzAgent. It is pretty average in removing stains, but it does not burn or taste bad. The only thing that keeps this from getting a higher rating is it does not whiten fillings or crowns. If your teeth are not modified, you may like this a little more than I do.
I’ve actually sampled a few deodorants lately, so the Dove Advanced Care Beauty Finish 48hr stood out. My first thought is who would go 48 hours between deodorant applications? You know that is what you thought, too. As soon as I received this box, I actually applied this deodorant. It was after a mid-day shower, but I still smelled fresh as I was laying down for bed that night. That is pretty good for someone who uses clinical strength deodorant. Although I will never test the 48hr protection claim, I will continue to use this over the next couple of weeks and report back on any shortcomings or accomplishments. This 0.5oz sample is worth $1.28.
The 1oz John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day In-Shower Treatment worth $1.46 looked familiar. Sometimes Wal-Mart and Target are prices similarly, but this product is much lower per ounce at Wal-Mart. In a Target Beauty Box, I noted this as $2.25 per ounce at Target. Reminder to shop around with drugstore prices. There is a lot of fluctuation. I have not used this from the Target box either, but I admit a product to help my thin hair look more full does sound intriguing.
My favorite razor is The Schick Hydro Silk, but I’ve never purchased it in the disposable version before. I cannot imagine it would be worse than the one I already know and love. The only noticeable difference is the handle is slightly slimmer, so that may affect grip. A single disposable razor is $3.02, which makes the disposable razors cheaper than each replacement head. If I had not priced this out for the box, I never would have realized it is cheaper to buy a brand new disposable razor than a head for a base. This seriously blows my mind.
For years, I used nothing but Curel. I know it is amazing, so I immediately busted into this 1.0oz Rough Skin Rescue Smoothing Lotion worth $0.37. These low value samples can at times pack power in them, and this was no exception. It moisturized my hands very well, so I have faith it will work wonderfully on my body. Small samples that work for hands and body usually get thrown into my purse for hand relief on the go. If this never makes it on my body, I will test it on my body when I buy it.
This Act Advanced Care Mouthwash in Frosted Mint is the same product I sampled for PINCHme. It burns a lot less than my usual Listerine. I am unsure if the burning means it is removing more germs or not. As such, I am unsure what I think of this. Listerine supposedly removes the most germs, but I have no clue if that’s true or if they have clever marketing people. The taste of this is fine, so I would certainly use it again. Both this and my usual mouthwash give me fresh breath. At 1oz, this sample is worth $0.19.
Last but not least, I have another foil. Nivea Extended Moisture Body Lotion is something I’d like to try. Most items from this brand are wonderful.
My box value is $22.30. This is also my personal value, because I will use everything in this box, even repeats. One product beat the entire value of the summer box! Have you subscribed yet? If not, you can still get a fall box of your own. Remember items vary, so your box could be completely different.
