Walmart Beauty Box Review – Spring 2018 – Classic Box


This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

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.

SOO AE Sleeping Mask – Retail Value $2.50

This overnight gel mask is fragrance free, and super hydrating. I found the formula to be slightly tacky, but since I was wearing it overnight it wasn’t an issue – and my skin felt so moisturized in the morning.

Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer – 2 oz Value $2.30

This is a great product if you don’t have a lot of time to apply self-tanner, wait for it to dry, etc. You apply it immediately post-shower when your skin is still wet, then pat dry with your towel and you’re good to go.

I found it to be super easy to use, and it left my skin a little moisturized, too. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, though. And it takes a while to fade, unfortunately.

Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Ointment Body Spray – .86 oz Value $2.30

I’ve used the Aquaphor ointment before, so I was excited to give this a try – it’s pretty amazing. Imagine getting a super fine mist version of the ointment that you don’t have to rub in – that’s how I would describe it.

Hello Flouride Free Whitening Toothpaste – .85 oz Value $1.27

Charcoal toothpaste that isn’t a powder! Yay! (This is the equivalent of me finding a natural deodorant in stick-form instead of a jar!)

This toothpaste is fluoride-free, ingredient-conscious, helps fight stains, and it’s nice and minty! The formula is black, so if you’ve never used charcoal toothpaste before it’s a little weird at first, but it’s as easy to rinse away as regular toothpaste.

Degree Motion Sense – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $3.89

First, full size! These are the kind of Walmart Beauty Boxes I like! The formula itself worked well for me, but I should call out that I wasn’t impressed with the claims of no white marks. It didn’t hold up to that promise – my shirt had subtle white marks.

Softsoap Earth Blends in Coconut & Fig – 2 oz Value $.59

I didn’t know Soft Soap had an ingredient-conscious line – this is a nice surprise! The formula is free of parabens, alochols, and dyes! (FYI – not fragrance, though.) It lathers well and smells sweet and fruity, too!

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist – 50 ml Value $.65

I’ve sampled this before and I liked it. It’s is a 3-minute conditioner that provides extra moisture compared to your standard conditioner. I liked the scent, and it left my hair feeling softer. (And I love a super quick and easy hair mask!)

Coupon for a FREE box of Clairol Nice ‘N Easy Hair Color (Up to $8.99 value)

More props to Walmart Beauty Box – in addition to all the products there’s a coupon for a free box of Clairol Nice ‘N Easy Hair Color.

But make sure to use this soon – it expires 5/30/18!

And the coupon came with a hair tie, too!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $13.50 or $22.50 counting the hair dye coupon! That’s great for a $5 Beauty Box! I’m happy with the sizes of the products, it’s great to see some new brands/products sampled, and the free Clairol coupon is a fab addition – I hope those kinds of coupons continue in these boxes!

UPDATE: FYI If you are planning on signing up for this box, please keep in mind that we’ve seen multiple MSA readers report issues with shipping, and some still haven’t received their Winter box.

  1. Liz, you got a winner! I Just received my box and it is terrible. Overall, my Spring 2018 Classic box was not worth $5 at all:

    Garnier Whole Blends Refreshing Shampoo & Conditioner Sachet – found free in magazines and worthless
    Garnier Whole Blends insert – reading material without a coupon. Worthless
    Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin – repeat from previous boxes
    Softsoap Earth Blends – only new sample that I can use
    Softsoap Earth Blends insert – reading material without a coupon. Worthless
    Donkey Milk Skin Gel Masks – repeat from previous boxes
    Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Body Scrub Macadamia & Rice Milk, 1oz – repeat from previous boxes

    Beyond disappointed — just mad. I think this a wrap for me with this subbie.

    • That’s the same thing I received! Not worth $5 at all. I might be canceling too. I haven’t received my Trendsetter Box yet. Hopefully that one is better.

    • Same here too!! I was so mad when I opened it up, this box is awful. I was looking forward to the aquaphor, toothpaste and the degree. The Jergens is a dup from a previous box. Fall maybe?

    • I got the same as you. Not sure why some people get so much less. I did receive the trendsetter box too. It had the same exact stuff plus Rembrandt 3 day whitening boost kit. Not what they showed when the box came out. I agree with someone else that said, they should do like Target does.

      I’m going to take the survey and complain to Wal-Mart and cancel. I also never received my winter boxes either.

    • I got the same box and was pretty annoyed. I didn’t get the deodorant, toothpaste and conditioner Liz got — all things I love to get in practical boxes like Walmart’s. This is honestly not worth even $2 much less $5. I will use only the face mask even though I have dozens of those already. With this lackluster offering, repeats galore and the ridiculously late shipments, I’m finally out, Walmart.

    • I received the same items. First time I have ever been disappointed. Very late in receiving as well. I guess from looking at the box My Subscription received they were trying to impress and us that have been paying for them for awhile are just left behind.

    • You got 1 more piece of paper than me, the only difference. I feel insulted.

    • I received the same crappy box. I could have purchased something worthwhile for $5.

    • Received the same disappointing box. Cancelled immediately.

    • Sadly I was charged for the summer box last month , I don’t mind waiting but with the new company in charge Brand share I decided to cancel, no problem with the boxes ,just no longer trust the company,, so I cancelled..

      • Hey JoAnne I was charged at the end of June as well and have no shipping/tracking info and no box. I emailed them after 10 business days passed and yet to hear back. Ugh.

    • I received my subscription box and I was not pleased. I received all sample products (3) and 2 coupons. I use to love receiving me box but for the last 2 boxes I have not been pleased. I my have to rethink my subscription.

      • It’s five bucks. Ha!!!

        • Lisa, the $5 price is not the point. It’s paying the same amount as everyone else, and some get full-size products like Liz, while others get only foil packets. It’s not fair at any price.
