Scoring sweet swag, reviewing awesome products and living the rad mom life.

I received my Walmart Beauty Box last month and was pleasantly surprised with the contents.  Walmart must have heard my complaints about the flimsy one time use samples because I only received one of those this time around!  As a reminder, this box ships every season and costs $5 to cover shipping.  They also ask for your age to customize your items.  Under 35 gets the Trendsetter version; Over 35 gets the Classic version.  Let’s take a look inside the Trendsetter box!

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer – This lotion has improved over the years.  When it first came out I thought it kind of had an orange tint and a horrible smell.  The scent is lighter now and it has more of a natural color now.  I already have a pretty decent tan so I didn’t see a huge difference; however, maybe if I used this for a few weeks in a darker shade I would see more of a dramatic change.  I think it’s a great alternative to lying in the sun for hours or hitting up the tanning bed.  Protect your skin, people!!

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Subtle Lightning Shampoo – I only used this once because  I got my hair colored the day after receiving this box and I was worried about it interfering with my already processed hair.  I think it’s a great idea for anyone wanting a subtle color change without paying big bucks.  It kind of reminds me of a new age Sun-In (do they still make that stuff?)

Burt’s Bees BB Cream – This was the only one time use packet in the box, but I didn’t mind since it was foundation.  I really liked this product – it covered well and I like Burt’s Bees products in general.  I would most likely purchase this in the future.  It also included a $3 off coupon so even more reason to switch to this brand!

Curel Itch Defense Body Wash – This had a very clean and smooth feel to it with not much of a scent.  I don’t really have super dry skin, but I would imagine this would be very beneficial to someone suffering from a dry skin issue.

CeraVe Healing Ointment – I only used this once, but I like that it didn’t feel greasy or go on heavy at all.  I think this would also be a great product who has issues with chafed or cracked skin.

Colgate Optic White High Impact White Toothpaste – I was pretty stoked to receive a whole tube of toothpaste in this box!  I did notice a slight difference in my teeth after about a week of use.  I also have pretty sensitive teeth and this toothpaste didn’t seem to make them anymore sensitive.

Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick – Pink Grapefruit – I love, love, love this lipstick!  I love the color and that how it leaves my lips feeling moisturized and smooth.  It also has a wonderful grapefruit scent that isn’t too overwhelming.  The color also lasted longer than many of my other lip glosses.  I did combine it with one of my lip glosses on occasion to add an extra bit of shine.  I have pretty much used this product every day and will continue to use it in the future!

Overall, I was really pleased with this beauty box.  The Neutrogena Color Stick retails for around $6-$7 and the toothpaste retails for around $4, so just with those products alone I would say the $5 for this particular box was worth it.  I also discovered some pretty awesome products that I would not have otherwise tried.

Let me know what you received in your Walmart Beauty Box!
