Walmart Summer Beauty Box!

Hola, chicas!!! I'm not exactly sure why I'm doing Spanish today. Okay then. Anyways, last week, I received my Walmart Summer Beauty Box in the mail! I have to say, I'm much happier with it this time around than I was last time. :) AND I'M ACTUALLY POSTING ON TIME! IT'S A MIRACLE!!!

If you aren't familiar with the program, or you haven't read my last post, the Walmart Beauty Box program is pretty simple. You pay a fee of $5 seasonally, and once every three months you're shipped a box full of samples and trial beauty products. Sometimes you get really great stuff, and sometimes it's honestly not worth it, so it really depends on the month. But hey, for only five dollars, it's worth a shot.

(Warning- I was taking these shots as the sun was going in and out, and my camera was being weird, so some of these pictures aren't as great as I would have liked. I'm sorry!)

It's here!!!
This month's goodies!

Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Complete Care Nourishing Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. I don't really want anti-dandruff shampoo, so I don't plan on using this. It smells pretty good though!

Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer Medium to Tan Skin Tones. I'm not huge on foil packets, they're just kind of annoying in my opinion. I don't know that I'm going to try this either, tanning products kind of scare me, to be honest. I'm soooo pale that I'm always scared I'm going to end up orange. I don't know. Maybe I'll try this one at some point once I get a little more tan.

Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. More foil packets. Yay. Also, UGH I hate this picture so much. This was a really weird material though, and I just couldn't get a good photo to save my life. -_- Sorry about that. Despite my lack of affection for foil packets, I actually might try this, if there's enough for my hair. It's so long that I'm not sure if there's enough shampoo in the packet. I guess we'll find out!

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen, SPF 30. I was really impressed by this sample, the tube may be small but it is PACKED with sunscreen. You definitely get a lot out of it. I'm going to have to use this the next time I go outside, although I'm not sure if the SPF will be high enough. I burn so easily! #blondeproblems

Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme. I really love this stuff! It's SUPER moisturizing, and it's not at all greasy. I'm definitely going to be using this sample quite a bit!

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara. I was super excited to get this mascara! I absolutely LOVE mascara, it's a bit of an obsession, so I was thrilled to get to try this one. Unfortunately, it really wasn't my favorite. It did a good job of lengthening lashes, but it wasn't quite black enough for my tastes, and it didn't thicken the lashes at all. Honestly, it almost seemed like they looked thinner than usual. I'd like to try layering this with another mascara to see how that looks, but I probably won't wear this by itself very often. 

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser. I haven't tried this cleanser yet, just because I like to wait to try skin care products until I don't have to go anywhere for a few days, in case it does something weird to my face. My skin is so sensitive that sometimes certain products will dry it out horribly, or it will break out really weird. Better to stay safe and wait. I'm interested to try this, though!

First off, I've just got to get this out there- it's so weird seeing Zayn on the packaging!!! It's so right and so wrong at the same time. I have to admit, this perfume actually smells pretty good. I can't use too much of it, as I learned earlier (oops!), but it does smell really good in very small amounts! I just can't use a ton, or I'll get a headache. Ugh. 

John Frieda Beachblonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray. I'm actually really excited to try this!!! I haven't gotten around to trying a salt spray yet, but I'd really like to see how it works. Perfect for summer- can't wait to try it!

NYC Big Bold Liquid Felt Tip Eyeliner. Guys. THEY GAVE ME A FULL EYELINER!!! Agh I'm so excited. And I actually somehow managed to lose my baby (aka my favorite liquid eyeliner), so I was going to have to go out and buy one. Well, now I don't!! This eyeliner has a really great 2-in-1 tip for really easy application. I tried it out, and it's SUPER easy to use. And that's coming from the most hopeless eyeliner girl ever. I'm looking forward to playing around with this a bit more. You do have to keep your eye closed for a moment after application to let the liner dry, but that's simple enough to learn. It also comes off extremely easily with a washcloth and water, which I love. I usually mess up so many times that easy removal is crucial. I don't want to look like a raccoon! I adore this product. :)

Overall, I'm really happy with this box. MUCH better than last season's! Did you order the Walmart Beauty Box? What did you think of it? If you didn't, are you interested in trying any of these products?


  1. So cool! I have been eyeing the ipsy make-up boxes, but this is a cool (and cheep) option. And I will come over and use your mascara, and drink your coffee. It will be amazing. ;-)

    1. Yeah, I've been wanting to try the ipsy boxes too, but I haven't actually done it yet either. These are pretty great though! Haha yes, sounds fabulous! ;)
