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!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Moisturizing Conditioner

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.

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.

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

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 ULTĂŽME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Lady Gaga Fame Perfume Sample

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


John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo

I’ve been running around trying to redeem my birthday rewards before April was up and this got me to revisiting what I have in my stash to try and use up. One of them has been what I got from the recent Walmart Spring 2016 Beauty Box. Here’s my take on the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo.

What I love about this product? It comes in a tube container that easily dispenses the product. I’m used to the traditional plastic bottle containers more but I’ve used a decent amount shampoos that come in the tube packaging. When I get to the end of the product I just add a little bit of water and shake the last bit of it to apply onto my hair. The scent is pretty good — typical of what I expect from a cologne-y or masculine type scent for a shampoo really. The formula is a of the same consistency as other John Frieda shampoos I’ve tried in the past. My husband didn’t care for the color of the product at all. I think he was weirded out with the brown or bronze-y color. Still, it does the job of a shampoo really so can’t complain on that.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really but there are other lines from this brand that I prefer over this one. I don’t see myself buying this once it’s all used up.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here. This product can easily be purchased in various retail and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, ULTA, CVS, and Walgreens. It is also available online at various websites that carry beauty and personal care products.


Walmart Spring 2016 Beauty Box

I finally, FINALLY got my Walmart Spring 2016 Beauty Box a few days ago. I was wondering if I was even gonna get one since I’ve seen people get theirs a few weeks ago. I thought maybe there was something wrong with my billing or there was some glitch. But nope, here it is in all its full glory:

Everything came packed securely in the sturdy cardboard box.As usual, this box costs only $5. Can’t beat that really in my opinion. I’m pretty sure the contents of my box differed from those that I’ve seen who got them a week or 2 earlier. Maybe they ran out of some stuff but I like pretty much everything I got so I’m not complaining!

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer

Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

Curel Itch Defense Body Wash

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo

The item I’m most excited about to try is the Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser. I actually almost purchased it when I was at ULTA recently. Now I have a sample to try it out first to see if I like it. Hope y’all are having a great weekend so far and stay tuned for my take on some of the items from this box!
