Walmart Beauty Box – Winter 2016

So here’s something funny… I apparently forgot to schedule a date for this post to be published when I finished writing it, so it’s been sitting in my Dashboard for over a month. Whoops!

After a couple of emotional posts it’s time for something more fun – my Walmart Winter 2016 Beauty Box arrived!

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - BoxBefore we dive into this beauty I have a short story to tell.

One of my New Year Resolutions was to use up some of these samples I’ve been accumulating. When the box arrived I was so gung-ho on that resolution that I forgot about taking photos, and put all the samples away to use.

When I was rinsing my hair in the shower the next morning I realized I’d forgotten to take photos – OOPS! By that time it was too late for the shampoo and conditioner samples, but I gathered the rest of them for photos.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - All SamplesHere’s what came in my Walmart Beauty Box, except the shampoo and conditioner.

I’m signed up for the Trendsetter box, but I noticed that my box contained both Trendsetter and Classic samples. I guess I’m a Classy Trendsetter! That’s better than thinking that I’m at the end of the line and end up with whatever’s left over…

It looks like I actually got more Classic samples than Trendsetter, and I’m OK with most of them except I wish they’d sent me the Neutrogena sample instead of the Pond’s. Oh well!

The Garnier Whole Blends Green Apple & Green Tea shampoo and conditioner pictured here is what I received and used before taking a photo. I LOVED the green apple scent, but I need a more hydrating formula to tame my flyaways.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - Dove Body WashDove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash. This is definitely moisturizing – I used my normal lotion afterwards and my skin feels softer than usual. The scent is a little medicinal, but I generally use products scented with essential oils so I’m probably more sensitive than most people.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - Dove DeodorantDove Advanced Care Cool Essentials Antiperspirant Deodorant. I LOVED the fresh cucumber scent of this deodorant! I only use aluminum-free deodorant so I passed this on to Angel Face.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - Pond's CreamPond’s Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream. I have to admit to a bias against Pond’s, because when I was a kid, Pond’s was an “old lady” cream. I was prepared to give this cream a chance, but when I opened it the scent was way too strong. I’ll probably have Princess trade this for me.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - CoverGirl MascaraCoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara. Unlike Pond’s, when I was young I LOVED Cover Girl brand – did any girl from my generation NOT want to be Christie Brinkley?! I really like this mascara; it works great and doesn’t flake into my contacts.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - Curel MoisturizerCurel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. Princess swears by this moisturizer, so I gave it an honest try. In the past I haven’t liked wet skin moisturizers because I hate to stay cold, wet, and dripping the extra minutes it takes to apply a wet skin moisturizer. It did make my skin feel softer all day, but I’d still rather dry off and get warm right away.

 

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 - CouponAt the bottom of the box were coupons for $1 off InStyle, People or StyleWatch magazines. I put those out by the sign-in for daycare parents to take if they wanted.

So, that’s the Winter 2016 Walmart Beauty Box – once again I thought it was totally worth the $5.00 price!
