Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box

Better late than never! I got this box about month ago but never got around to posting it until now. Holidays are always a busy time for me. I like how they mixed it up a little bit more with this box — I think it’s one of the more different ones from their past boxes. Still a great deal for $5 just to try these out. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, like I mentioned earlier I feel like they changed it up more with this box compared to the previous ones. This is mostly due to the sleeping mask and the flossers. I’m very glad they decided to switch up from the usual travel size shampoo and conditioner. I feel like they’ve done that A LOT. They have a lotion in just about every box too but at least they do change that up I think.

Soo Ae Donkey Milk Sleeping Mask

TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray

Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal Cream

Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste

Plackers Micro Mint Travel Pack Flossers

Body Fantasies Layering Collection Eau De Toilette Sprays

Sample sachets

I’m most excited about the sleeping mask! Can’t wait to try it out.

ipsy November 2017 Glam Bag

Halloween came by and went as well as Thanksgiving. I’ve been quite busy the past few weeks that posting on here just hasn’t been on top of my list. But the holiday season is now here and the pile of things for me to review are stacking up. Since I got most of my Christmas shopping done already, I can focus on other stuff (like this blog) more. Here’s what I got in my ipsy November 2017 Glam Bag.

I’m not sure if I like or dislike the bag. What I know is it made me think of one of my closest friends immediately so I might just give this to her. First item that caught my eye is the Kensie Perfume. The size I got is the purse sprayer mini deluxe. Since I’m not a fan of trying new scents (most gives me a headache), I will be passing this on to another close friend of mine that simply lovvvves perfumes. Next item that caught my eye is the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Bitten & Bronzed Matte Bronzer. The packaging is just so eye-catching, as what I have come to expected with anything Lisa Frank. Since I’m not adding more bronzers to what I already have for the moment, I will be passing this on as a stocking stuffer extra for one of my nieces. Then we have the em Infinite Lip Cloud. I liked their mascara a lot so I’m sure the quality of this product is pretty good. The shade I got this in is called Rose Nude. Next we have the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush. The shade I got this in is called Feisty. This is a nice shade but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it or give it away. I do like their stuff a lot. Last up is Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara.

Overall, it’s okay but this is making me look forward to what December has to offer more. Since it’s for Christmas, I’m hoping it will have something that wows me. 🙂


Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme

Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I got from my latest Influenster Vox Box. Here’s Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme.

Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme

The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Introducing Polo Red Extreme, a powerful blend of vibrant blood orange, addictive black coffee essence and supercharged black ebony wood, for the fearless man who lives life to the extreme.”

What I love about this product? This fragrance is pleasant without being overpowering. It is manly, charming and sexy. A little goes a long way. My husband tried it with just 2 dabs on his neck to try it out. Both of us get headaches from strong scents so that aspect is probably one of the most important things to us in a fragrance. With a light hand in application, you just notice it subtly. I find it to be a warm and alluring scent — a winner in my book! My husband said that this brought back memories of high school. It can be nostalgic and I can see that as high school is when my peers started using fragrances of all kinds like CK One or Eternity or Cool Waters. This one would fall right in the list nicely.

What I don’t like about this product? Honestly, nothing really. I’m actually going to pick up the full-sized bottle for my husband once this runs out.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here. Products from this brand is carried at other retailers too as seen listed 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.

Walmart Summer 2016 Beauty Box

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 ULTÎME Diamond Color & Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Lady Gaga Fame Perfume Sample

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


Walmart Summer 2015 Beauty Box

I recently got this in the mail and was going to take product shots on Sunday but was very busy with household chores. It was sunny and my husband actually got us a new game from Steam so he chipped in and took the product shots for me as I finished up the household chores. Bless his heart! He didn’t use the zoom function that I always do and actually even took product shots of the lotion foil packet sample as well as the fragrance vial sample. I would’ve skipped both of those but I can’t really complain with free help right? Here’s what I got with my Walmart Summer 2015 Beauty Box.

Everything came in the same sturdy cardboard box. There is one more item in this box than I’m used to, making this a pretty good deal for $5.

St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub

Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Shampoo

Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 70

NIVEA Soft Moisturizing Creme

NYC Liquid Lipshine Lip Gloss

Dove go fresh Revitalize Body Wash

Jergens Natural Glow

One Direction You & I Perfume

This is much better than the last box, Walmart Spring 2015 Beauty Box. The extra item contributed greatly to that and the samples are more applicable to me than the previous boxes. The coupons are nice too in this box.
