Walmart Beauty Box Review – Summer 2017 – Classic 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).
You can sign up for both like I did – just change your birthday year for the different account. Check out my post on the Trendsetter and Classic options to see how to get both options.
This is the best packaging I’ve seen from Walmart Beauty Box to date – I’m impressed with the separate lid design!

RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream – 5 ml Value $2.50
This SPF 30 sunscreen is a rich formula that blends in clear easily and leaves you with a matte finish. I wish it was fragrance-free, but at least the scent is light. (And I appreciate a reminder to apply sunscreen beyond my chin!)
Dove Refresh + Care Volume + Fullness Dry Shampoo – 1.15 oz Value $1.40
This dry shampoo goes on clear (which is great if you have dark roots like I do). I wasn’t crazy about the powdery scent, but it fades pretty quickly. I didn’t notice any volume or fullness from this dry shampoo, though. It stacks up well with other dry shampoos for removing excess oil, but I didn’t notice anything special.
Banana Boat Dry Balance SPF 30 – 1 oz Value $1.33
Unlike most sunscreens that usually have a bit of a greasy finish, this sunscreen actually has a matte finish! It’s a pretty amazing formula – and this sample is good for one full use!
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer – 5 ml Value $.90
I sampled this before thanks to the Spring 2017 Walmart Beauty Box Trendsetter Box.
It’s a great product if you like the scent of coconuts! The formula is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil, etc. And it is made with fair trade coconut oil! The formula is a lightweight cream that absorbed almost instantly. It’s a perfect summer moisturizer!
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil – 1 ml Value $.33
This facial oil is ingredient conscious just like the moisturizer! I recommend using this if you are looking for a light sheen on your skin – it’s a nice subtle way to get the “luminous” look.
POND’S Original Fresh MoistureClean Towelettes – 5 count Value $1
These are different than other makeup remover wipes I’ve tried – they are a little soapy! They left my skin feeling cleansed and refreshed (and did a pretty good job at removing makeup, too), but I avoided using them on my eye area because of the soapy factor.
Pantene Pro-V Dream Care Shampoo – 50 ml Value $.45
I always appreciate when a subscription box includes both the shampoo and conditioner from the same line so you can get the full experience.
Pantene Pro-V Dream Care Conditioner – 1.7 oz Value $.45
I found mixed reviews on this shampoo and conditioner when I looked it up. (Some said it left their hair feeling like straw, other people loved it.) So I sampled it sparingly, and I can’t say I noticed any difference in my hair. If you’ve used this shampoo/conditioner and recommend it, let us know!
Lastly, this box came with a coupon from Smile Direct Club:
($55 off impression kit and $100 off aligners.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $8.45. That’s OK for a $5 Beauty Box, but considering some of these samples were sent out last season in the Trendsetter box, I’m a little disappointed. It’s not a terrible box, but it’s not a good box for me.
What do you think of the Summer Walmart Beauty Box? Did you get the Classic or Trendsetter box?
