Walmart Beauty Subscription Box Review - December 2016

Treat Yourself This Season with Beauty - Trendsetter

This is a review of the quarterly cosmetics subscription box from Walmart. It only costs $5 including shipping and handling. The retail value for this box is $11.75, compared to other beauty subscription boxes it's not that great of a value, but it may still be worth it for some. I was in need of some more mascara and I find drugstore mascara equal to many expensive brands, so for me it was worth the $5. For the forth quarter of 2016, they sent out the following products for those under 35 years old:
  1. Garnier - Whole Blends Green Apple & Green Tea Shampoo & Conditioner, .34 fl oz each, $0.17 approximate retail value
  2. Covergirl - Lashblast Volume Mascara, full size, $6.15 retail value
  3. Dove - Deep Moisture Body Wash, 1.8 fl oz, $0.59 retail value
  4. Curél - Hyrdra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer, 2 fl oz, $1.99 retail value
  5. Dove - Advanced Care Cool Essentials Antiperspirant Deodorant, .5 oz. $0.84 retail value
  6. Pond's - Rejueveness Anti-wrinkle Cream, 1.75 oz, $2.01 retail value
Mind you there are a couple of variations to this box, but still in the same range of retail value. While I'm not under thirty-five, I chose it because last time I was subscribed I found they sent less of a value for those over thirty-five and less exciting products. That box is called the Classic Box and this one I am reviewing is the Trendsetter Box. I use Dove's antiperspirant deodorant, so I recommend that, though the ingredients aren't the healthiest, it works. I've had a sample of the Dove moisture body wash and it was moisturizing, but yet again the ingredients aren't healthy, so I prefer brands sold at Vitacost. If you need a moisturizer for your face and you can't afford the expensive brands, Ponds is ok, but Olay is much better. I'm not a big fan of drugstore shampoos due to their ingredients, so I can't recommend them, but the samples are handy for travel.

Also, included were coupons for $1 off InStyle Magazine, People and StyleWatch plus $4 off Curél. It's not the most exciting subscription box, but if you're on a tight budget and enjoy drugstore cosmetics, this is a treat for you at only $5. Sometimes one just enjoys receiving a surprise in the mail and at $5 this one is a good choice. What's your favorite subscription box?

Bargain Alert:

Walmart Grocery - $10 off $50  (1st order)
