What a pleasant surprise! After receiving the summer Walmart beauty box only weeks ago, I wasn't expecting the fall box to arrive for months - but look what I found on my doorstep today! Just in time for the start of the school year I was very interested to see just what might be included in this season's box. Read below to see what I received.
This quarter we received a pamphlet detailing the entire self-care collection offered for autumn. Debuting ten items, and one mystery item, you will receive six items in total. Being a mix of hair care, skin care, and make up, the choices were rounded out quite well, but just what size of items did they send?
Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier, Yuzu Pineapple - Estimated Value - $1.50 - Buy a pack of 6 for $8.98
Surprise, surprise, look at this month's first item. I think I mentioned in the summer review that for about the past 2 years we have received a package of Liquid I.V. powder in every box. While I don't care for any drink mixes, I find these packets way too salty. This month's version actually contains coffeeberry energy extract, Cognatio coffee fruit extract, and I-theanine for what they say will help support brain function, mental clarity and focus, but I'd rather just drink my morning coffee for caffeine. In past, there have been mixed reviews about receiving these packets, as they are quite expensive and a lot of people like them, but I will be putting this in the "free" pile at work for someone who will enjoy this more than myself.
Hempz Triple Moisture Herbal Whipped Body Creme - Estimated Value - $2.59 - Buy a 17 oz container for $19.48
Hempz has been around for quite some time, and though I've seen it around, I've never actually used it. Coming in a nice sized bottle, I appreciated the "Triple Moisture" version, as my skin tends to start drying out as soon as summer is over. Quite creamy in consistency, my freshly shaven legs ate this lotion right up. With an extremely fruity scent, I would be hesitant to rub this on severely dry skin, but appreciated the fact that it did tame down quite quickly. Rubbing in well and not leaving an oily or greasy residue, I am happy to have a portable lotion that may one day be considered a life saver!
Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Diamond Lip Plumper - Estimated Value $1.95 - Buy a 5 ml container for $6.78
Lip glosses are my jam, so when I caught a glimpse of this lip plumper, I couldn't wait to try it out. Not only do I appreciate a clear color, but I also happen to love the Physician's Formula brand. Leaving my lips just a tiny bit tingly and a lot shiny, this little guy fit perfectly in my jean jacket pocket and has everything I look for in a gloss. Did it make my lips plumper? It's hard to say, but I still would re-purchase it!
Peach Slices Snail Rescue All-In-One Oil-Free Moisturizer - Estimated Value $0.99 - Buy a 2.8 oz container for $16.99
If I had to rate my Walmart Beauty Box items like I do my Universal Yums box ones, this snail mucin would definitely earn the award for the weirdest! Honestly, when I first read the package, I concluded this was in some way helping rescue snails, not that it was actually made of snail secretions! While husband and kids were totally grossed out, I did apply this to my face. While I only had enough for a few applications, my skin did feel a little softer after using. With no gross scent, I'd maybe try a larger size container of this. Does anybody use this regularly? What made you decide to switch from your previous moisturizer to snail secretion filtrate?
Hairitage Headband - FULL SIZE! Retail Value $5.88
I have to admit, when I opened this season's box, as soon as I caught a glimpse of this headband, I left the rest of the contents on the table and tried this on. If you didn't know, I love hair accessories, and rarely leave the house without one. Yes, I am 34, and at one point in my life I was told to leave the accessories at home once I hit 27, but I decided life is too short, and that if you enjoy something, wear it, period. This cable knit, ivory headband has a lovely little knot on the top for some extra volume and is perfect for fall. While I typically wear headbands when my hair is fully up, it did look cute with a side bun, and I was exceedingly happy to add it to my ever-growing collection.
CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion - Estimated Value $0.96 - Buy a 16 oz bottle for $16.47
The last item I received was admittedly a bit of a letdown after the lip plumper and head band, but still proved useful. CeraVe is a brand I have bought in the past, and it does work. With a little bit thicker formula than the Hempz lotion we received, this doesn't have any fragrance, which proves beneficial to ultra-dry skin. It also is a little greasier feeling and takes more work to rub in, but does feel extra moisturizing, which is something I definitely need once the weather turns.
With an early delivery and a full-sized hair accessory, Walmart's Fall Beauty Box impressed me this season. The calculated value of this $6.98 box was $13.87, which is about double the price of the box. I felt like the curation of this box was decent for fall, and the variety of items was on par. Overall, I was quite pleased and definitely more impressed than last season!
