Walmart Beauty Box (a review!)...

Walmart Beauty Box review | yourwishcake.com
Now, first things first: I'm not an avid Walmart shopper. Mostly because my heart (and wallet) belong to Target, but also because when I was 18 I saw a presentation on sweat shops at my community college and it still haunts my dreams. So, that is all to say: This post isn't exactly a fist-bump to all things Walmart, I just feel I've discovered the most inexpensive beauty box on the planet and had to share.

Phew! Now that that's off my chest…

I recently came across some information on this beauty box on Deal Seeking Mom, and—after researching reviews, finding almost all of them to be positive—decided that $5 (including shipping) for a box every season is actually a pretty good deal. Also, because I buy nearly all my beauty products from drugstores, I like the idea of getting samples for things that are actually within my budget.

When you sign up for a subscription, they mail you the most recent box, so I received the Winter 2014 selections. If you want more information on this beauty box, here you go! I don't receive anything if you sign up, and I wasn't compensated for this review—I just thought I'd share this deal with all of you, because it is so inexpensive. (And kind of fun to get a box o' goodies four times a year.)

Here's what I received:

— Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes (full size), retail price: $3
— Cover Girl Colorlicious Lipgloss in Juicy Fruit (full size), retail price: $7.99
— Dove body wash (sample size)
— Aveeno lotion (sample size)
— Sample packets for two different shampoo/conditioners and one fragrance

Judging by what others received in their boxes, I feel like I didn't get as much as some subscribers. (Perhaps this is because I received mine after the originals were sent out?) Still, I tried out the face wipes and they're fantastic, and the lipgloss is actually very pretty when I put it on. I love having body wash and lotion samples on hand for whenever we travel, so I'll add those to my stash! Based on other reviews I've read, these boxes typically include 1-2 full-size items inside, so I'm eager to see what is included in the spring box.

Have any of you received this box before? Are there any subscription boxes you've found are worth every penny?

  1. Five bucks? I'm definitely signing up for this! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I received a similar box, a little disappointed but I like the subscription service. I still like Target's better.

  3. Sounds like a pretty good deal! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I didn't even know they did these. Score! & Target has one too?

  5. I just signed up! Love you...

  6. I didn't even know this existed! There isn't a Target anywhere near me, so Walmart is what I've got. Definitely signing up!

  7. My box was the same as yours, I saw a few variations on twitter and saw a few posts that say there are "old" and "young" versions
