Walmart Beauty Box Review – Winter 2017 – Trendsetter Box
The Walmart Beauty Box is a quarterly beauty sample 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.

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude – 2.3 g Value $4.60
This is my favorite item in the box! It adds a decent amount of color, moisture, and it has a satin finish – not overly shiny. Plus, it has a nice, fruity flavor! Here it is swatched:
Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash – 1.8 oz Value $.45
I’m not a huge fan of the Dove body wash scents (including this one), but it definitely does the job of a moisturizing body wash! (I love their unscented soap bars, though!)
Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer – 2 oz Value $2
This is a moisturizer that is designed to be applied to your skin directly after you shower when your skin is still wet. The tube says it absorbs instantly, but I was still getting a bit of a film when I tried rubbing it in. I toweled the excess off, and my skin was moisturized but not greasy – but of course that meant half the product was now on my towel!
So to sum up, this is an interesting product but didn’t work exactly as promised for me, and I think I’ll stick to my body oil post-shower routine!
This sample also included a coupon for $4 off of on any Curel Hydra Therapy. (Considering the 8 oz version retails for about $7.99, that’s a great discount!)
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion – 1 oz Value $.97
This lotion absorbs quickly, moisturized my skin, and I love that it is fragrance-free!
This set of hair products is designed to help with straightening your hair before you use any heated hair tools. After the shampoo, you apply the pre-conditioner, let it sit for a minute, then apply the conditioner over it, let that all sit for a minute, then rinse.
My hair is wavy/curly, so I usually either straighten or curl it to get a style that looks intentional 🙂 and I was excited to give this a try. It didn’t leave my hair completely straight (I’ll still need to use a straightener), but it definitely left my hair straighter than it would have dried normally. So, it’s not a game-changing product for me, but based on your hair type, it might be for you!
Village Naturals Therapy Concentrated Mineral Bath Soak – 2 oz Value $2.32
This bath soak has an intense menthol scent (though, I guess just about anything with menthol in it has an intense menthol scent!).
This can be used for a full bath or a foot bath. I like formula with the exception of the artificial dyes – I feel like there was no need to add them to the bath salts.
Lastly, this box included magazine coupons, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $10.50. I think that’s good for a $5 box, especially because I feel like I got a lot of great travel sized samples. The Neutrogena lip crayon is almost worth the cost of the box alone, so all the other samples are just bonus to me! What do you think of the Winter Walmart Beauty Box? Did you get the Classic or Trendsetter box?
