Walmart Summer 2016 Beauty Box

I got my Walmart Summer 2016 Beauty Box in about 2 weeks ago. I was fairly pleased with what I got for $5.

I’ve seen a few boxes where the polish strips are of a different print but everything else is the same. I’m eager to try out the toothpaste in this set. I must say I’m a little bit tired of seeing the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs again. It keeps popping up in various beauty boxes.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion

Incoco Coconut Nail Art Polish Strips

ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant Clean & Fresh Toothpaste

Schwarzkopf essence ULTÎME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Lady Gaga Fame Perfume Sample

Not bad overall. Still a great deal for the price in my opinion.


Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticles Hand Creme

Hey guys! I’m so glad it’s the weekend again! It’s been a super busy week for me so I’m glad to have this time away from work. Here’s my take on the Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticles Hand Creme.

Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticles Hand Creme

What I love about this product? Sally Hansen is well-known worldwide as a trusted brand. I didn’t hesitate to try this product out as soon as I managed to get my hands on one in a CVS winter clearance sale about 2 years ago. I like that the product has a light scent that even my husband didn’t mind (he’s quite sensitive to scents like a good percentage of people are). This hand cream delivers! I use this heavily during the winter as it has almost no hint of greasiness at all. My skin absorbs it quickly and it leaves my skin soft and nice. I’ve reviewed several other hand creams before and what I will say is that I find this formula to be in almost in the same bucket as Bath & Body Works Nourishing Hand Cream. I personally think this is better than that by a little bit due to the moisture lasting factor. I don’t want to say this is ever so slightly greasier than that. What I will say is I find that the Bath & Body Works one absorbs instantly with no greasiness at all left behind. It feels more like a lotion really when compared to the Sally Hansen one. That leaves my hands feeling like there is leftover moisturizing protection even after my skin absorbs most of it. I talked about other hand creams that impressed me before, the Hand Perfection Anti-Aging Hand Care System and Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream so I won’t rehash those again.

What I don’t like about this product? If it has been discontinued, that would be it. I can’t seem to find it under the product listing on their website. I have one more tube left and while there are other hand creams out there that I do love, I will say that this is my favorite for winter as it keeps my hand moisturized perfectly without the greasiness of effective hand creams I’ve tried.

More information on this brand is available on their website.

Sally Hansen Rum Punch

Hey guys! This has been quite a relaxing few days due to Thanksgiving. I did partake in minor after Thanksgiving shopping online but one of the retailers pretty much ended being a bust for me as I can’t check out with any form of payment. Here’s a shade from Sally Hansen’s Poolside Paradise Collection earlier this summer in their Miracle Gel line: Rum Punch.

Sally Hansen Rum Punch

Rum Punch is a pretty bright pink shade. It is described as a “our #1 pedicure pick: a super-saturated, on-trend deep pink”. It has a super glossy finish but required more than 2 coats for opacity. Shown is 3 coats with one coat of their Miracle Gel top coat.

I see a lot of shades being year-round and this one falls into that category. I’ll be sporting this on my toes fairly soon.

Sally Hansen Style Maker

Hey guys! It’s a short week for many of us here due to Thanksgiving. I’m looking forward to just kicking back a little and staying warm. The weather has cooled considerably that the heater is finally on! Here’s another shade from Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel line: Style Maker.

Sally Hansen Style Maker

Style Maker is such a pretty vibrant shade that’s perfect year-round. It’s a pretty jewel tone green to me. Formula is sheerer than I thought though. Shown is 4 coats with one coat of their Miracle Gel top coat.

It’s not quite the festive green for the holiday season but I love this shade of green a lot. Keeper for sure!

Sally Hansen Spice Age

Hey guys! This is a new week and I’m glad that’s it’s flying by fast. I’m looking forward to having lunch tomorrow at this nifty shop that carries all sorts of cheese with my co-worker sis and a developer on my team. Here’s another shade from Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel line: Spice Age.

Sally Hansen Spice Age

Spice Age is such a pretty shade suited for Fall. It makes me think of things like cinnamon and spice. It is described as a “shimmering chocolate brown”. The formula is beautiful yielding a lovely application. Shown is 2 coats with one coat of their Miracle Gel top coat.
