Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box

So I actually almost forgot I have this beauty box subscription until an email asked if I wanted to switch it up for something special or stay with whatever setting I have already made in my account. I didn’t want to mess with it so I opted to just stay with my current setting. This popped in my mailbox about a week ago. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, pretty good stuff. In fact, as soon as I saw the lip product I knew that I had to give it to my sister from another mister Renuky. 🙂 It became part of her flip book goodies, which by the way is so much fun to make and hers is the first one I’ve given out so far. I made one for her birthday. 🙂 The shade seems light enough to suit her especially with it being a lip gloss. The first thing I’m trying out is the whitening toothpaste as we’ve been using regular whitening toothpaste and I’m not really seeing any difference so it’s time to change it up!

Curtain Call: Schwarzkopf essence ULTĂŽME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Hey, hey! Quick late night post here with an edition of Curtain Call! I recently finished up something I got from the Walmart Summer 2016 Beauty Box. Here’s my take on the Schwarzkopf essence ULTĂŽME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner.

Schwarzkopf essence ULTĂŽME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

What I love about this product? I didn’t have super high hopes for this product really as it’s just shampoo and conditioner. I did try to look out for things that will make it stand out as the market for this type of products is oversaturated already. The scent surprised me a little — it’s not very feminine at all. It’s not floral, fruity, earthy or clean. It’s slightly more masculine, at least according to my nose. It makes me think of a manly fragrance in a good way but not overpowering at all, especially when my hair is dry. If this is a concern, know that the scent fades away a lot as the day goes on after it’s dry. The formula is what I have come to expect of from a regular shampoo and conditioner really and it does the job — it cleans my hair very well.

What I don’t like about this product? No complaints over here at all. While it doesn’t have any earth-shattering properties that makes it stand out from other shampoos and conditioners, it does the job and it does it well.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here.


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.

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


Schwarzkopf essence ULTĂŽME Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

After using the ProfilePRO Customized Shampoo & Conditioner for a while, I decided to try out the Schwarzkopf essence ULTĂŽME Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner from my Walmart Spring 2015 Beauty Box.

What I love about this product? The scent is a nice departure from floral and fruity scents. It’s also not a clean scent that some shampoos have but a more cologne type kind of scent I would say. It does the job of both shampoo and conditioner I would say but the formula wouldn’t have me coming back for more honestly. The shampoo is kind of silvery translucent in color while the conditioner is the typical white.

What I don’t like about this product? The first time I used it, I thought it was strange that it felt like the shampoo stripped my hair of moisture but I reasoned that I’m using the conditioner with it so it’s okay. Well, my hair is noticeably more limp and has less volume with the use of both products. Hoping to resolve this, I decided to try just using the shampoo and it didn’t help much. My hair is still more limp than with what I was using before trying this pair. At least it’s not brittle or very dry. I was actually nervous that I might be the only one with a negative experience but looks like reading up reviews online on this it’s all across the board. Some gave it very high praises as it saved their hair while others have extremely bad experience with this (mostly feeling that it’s stripping their hair of moisture a lot). As I’ve mentioned in a lot of my reviews before, different strokes for different folks. Almost nothing works for everyone so don’t take my negative review as exactly what you will experience with the same product.

This item should be available in various drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.


Walmart Spring 2015 Beauty Box

This box came recently and it didn’t wow me or anything. I actually forgot about it until I got charged the $5 in my credit card statement. I actually thought about canceling it though, but I figured I’ll do that if the next box isn’t that great. Here’s what I got with my Walmart Spring 2015 Beauty Box.

Everything came in the same sturdy cardboard box as with the Fall and Winter one. None of the items really speak out to me, but it’s still not bad for $5 really.

Dove go fresh Revitalize Body Wash

I feel that the Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box was definitely better in terms of value for the $5 I paid and this is the same sentiment I expressed in my review of the Walmart Winter 204 Beauty Box.

Overall, I’ll wait for one more box (yet again) to decide if I’ll continue on with this subscription or not.
