Walmart Beauty Box Subscription Review – Spring 2016
The Walmart Beauty Box is a quarterly subscription box from Walmart. They feature brands you will find at Walmart, plus coupons.
FYI – They ask for your birthday at sign up to customize the box based on age. There are two options you could receive based on age: Trendsetter (under 35) or Classic (35 and over).
Check out my post on the Trendsetter and Classic options to see how to get both options.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Walmart Beauty Box (Trendsetter Box)
The Cost: $5 (ships once a season)

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste – FULL SIZE! Value $5
First item out of the box and we’ve already covered the cost – love it! Toothpaste is one of those items I don’t get too excited about in boxes, but I can always use, so this is a win!
Burt’s Bees BB Cream in Light/Medium – Sample
How did I not know there was a Burt’s Bees BB Cream?! Normally I don’t enjoy seeing sample packets in subscription boxes, but I couldn’t wait to try this! The formula smells great, has medium coverage (I like my BB Creams to provide medium-complete coverage), and it stayed in place all day! And the sample had surprisingly more than enough BB Cream for a full-use!
Considering the full-size is only $15 and I now have a $3 coupon, I think I will be switching up from foundation to this BB Cream for the summer – I love how light it feels!
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude – .08 oz Value $6.50
This is practically full size – and I was happy to see that it twists up just like the full-size version! The color is very wearable for me. It provides a sheer wash of color, some moisture, and not much shine – great for a natural look. Here it is swatched with the BB Cream:
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer – 2 oz Value $2
I used to use this product all the time in high school/college! Since then I’ve found self tanners that are better for my coloring (tarte self tanners), so I’ll be passing this along to a friend.
My general rule of thumb for hair care products is to avoid any that include sulfates since I color-treat my hair, but this one includes sulfates but also says it is color-safe. It smells great and I like the idea of enhancing my color with shampoo so I’m inclined to try it. If you have any expertise on if this is safe or not for color treated hair, let me know!
Curel Itch Defense Body Wash – 1 oz Value $.70
This body wash is made for people with dry, itchy skin. Fortunately for me, I don’t have that issue (thanks subscription boxes, for more moisturizers than I will ever be able to use), so this will get passed along or donated.
CeraVe Healing Ointment – 2.5 g Value $1
This healing ointment is pretty impressive:
No fragrance added, Dermatologist Tested, Dye-free, Hypoallergenic, Noncomedogenic, Phthalate-free, Steroid-free, Sulfate-free
And most importantly, it works well! The sample is pretty tiny, but a little goes a long way, so it works out!
Verdict: I am surprisingly impressed with this box! I don’t expect much from Walmart Beauty Boxes given the price point, but this box was such a win for me! All good sized items, and a great BB Cream discovery! What do you think of the Spring Walmart Beauty Box? What samples did you get?
