Walmart's Beauty in a Box
I love getting just about anything in the mail that isn't a bill. I especially like if it is free samples in the mail. A couple of month's ago I read a post on the blog Straight on Till Morning that mentioned she had just received a quarterly beauty box from Walmart. The samples themselves are free but you do have to pay $5 for shipping. Her box seemed pretty awesome so I decided I would give it a try.
I went onto their website that same day and signed up. I forgot about it until about a week ago when they notified me that they would be sending out my box that week.
I got excited about the email and then promptly forgot about it again (no one ever said I had a great memory).
This morning when I stopped back at my house in between errands, I saw a small box waiting at my front door. I couldn't remember ordering anything recently that would fit in that box and was surprised to see that it was my Walmart Beauty Box. I brought it inside, and you guessed it, I forgot about it until I got home. You would think I would remember that I had a box of free stuff waiting for me at home.
When I got home and had all the groceries put away, I was finally ready to dig into my box. It had tissue paper in the box so you knew it was going to be good! I received the following items in my box.
There was a sample size of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil for Hair with African Macadamia Oil. Their website states that it is great for all hair types and it absorbs into the hair. It smells wonderful and I am looking forward to trying it.
There was a full size Hardy Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain. When I opened the package it looked browner than I was expecting. However, when I put it on it was a nice nude color. It just gives your lips a little pop of color which is what I prefer. It also has a nice smooth feel instead of the cakey feel you get sometimes when you put lipstick on. I checked on Walmart's site and it sells for $5, so I already made back my shipping cost.
Next up was a full size Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in Black. This couldn't have come at a better time since I was due for a new mascara. I don't wear make-up nearly often enough but mascara is something I replace on a regular basis because it tends to get clumpy after awhile. This mascara sounds pretty awesome. It says that lashes look up to 126% longer (who doesn't want longer lashes). Walmart sells these for $7.97, so I totally scored on this one.
I received a sample size of Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser with White tea & Vitamin E. This is the perfect size to take with me to Chile. I am hoping that it lives up to it's claim that it won't over-dry. My skin is super dry and it can become painful with some facial cleansers. It smells awesome so I am looking forward to trying it out.
Finally, I received two samples of shampoo and conditioner sets. They sent John Frieda Luxurious Volume and L'Oreal Paris Color Vibrancy. These also will be coming to Chile with me. I plan on purchasing shampoo and conditioner while I am there and these will tide me over until I get to the store.
I think that this was an awesome first box from Walmart and I look forward to my next box in the Spring.
****This was not a paid review. I was just really excited about my box and wanted to share. If anyone would like to send me a free sample or pay me to try something, I am definitely open to it!****
