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!

Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste

Happy Wednesday to y’all! While I’ve been busy testing products that come my way, not all are hits or near hits. I recently tried something I got from the Walmart Fall 2016 Beauty Box. Here’s my take on the Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste.

Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste

What I love about this product? I had really high hopes for this product as it is naturally friendly, vegan and cruelty-free. Directions are pretty much self-explanatory: just use it like any other regular toothpaste. I used it for about a week and it does the basic job of a toothpaste so I can’t complain about that really.

What I don’t like about this product? I didn’t care for the taste really. Maybe I grew up on the artificial mintiness of what most toothpaste are made of but it is what it is. Also, I don’t really see much of a whitening effect compared to other teeth whitening toothpaste. I know that the ingredients in this are probably less harsh but if I’m looking to use a teeth whitening toothpaste then I expect this to perform just as well as other teeth whitening toothpastes in the market and it just can’t compare to those. But if you’re looking for a more natural, vegan and cruelty-free whitening toothpaste then this might be the answer to your prayers. But the combination of the taste and the lack of effectiveness in teeth whitening, I went back to using my regular toothpaste in less than 2 weeks.

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

CeraVe Healing Ointment

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick

Various Samples and Coupons

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!


Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

Hey guys! How’s the weather in your area? It’s been cold here. I can’t wait for summer already! Today’s post is on another item I got from my Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #3. Here’s my take on the Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste.

What I love about this product? It does what its supposed to do — it cleans. Can’t go wrong with that. It’s a nice toothpaste with a minty fresh flavor. I do notice that my teeth were whiter after a few uses but it kind of tapers off after that. I’m sure part of it is that it’s maybe as “white” as I can get my teeth to be with a whitening toothpaste and to see the difference I’d have to stop using it for a while.

What I don’t like about this product? It doesn’t seem to have results as good as I get from Crest Pro-Health Advanced with Extra Deep Clean Mouthwash. While it does work, I think I’ll stick with the one from Crest for now.

More information on this item and other products from this brand is available on their website here. Products from this brand is carried by drugstores and mass retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, Target, and Walmart.


Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2

The last 2 beauty boxes from Target were a hit: Target Head Of The Class 2015 Beauty Box and Target Honor Roll 2015 Beauty Box. Here’s the Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2.

Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. For $7, this is a steal as the estimated retail value of everything here is $35. Being that I loved the past few boxes, I am very pleased with this one.

CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara

Olay Active Botanicals Day Lotion & Moisturizing Toner

Fekkai Pré-Soleil Hair Mist

I am very thrilled with the Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing Hair Mask and Fekkai Pré-Soleil Hair Mist. Those alone made the box worth it for me. As usual it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.
