With winter in full force here in Minnesota, I've been wondering when the winter Walmart Beauty Box would be arriving, and lo and behold here it is! Donning the title "Winter Wonders", I couldn't wait to see what new products I just might discover for this chilly time of year. Secretly I am hoping for some powerful hand creams and a bath bomb, but who knows what might be in store! Read below to see what I received.
This quarter we received a pamphlet detailing the self-care collection offered for winter. With 13 different options listed, you are guaranteed to receive six great finds. Being a mix of skin care, hair care, and make-up, the choices were rounded out quite well, but just what size items did they send?
Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier, Watermelon and Tangerine - Estimated Value - $3.00 - Buy a pack of 6 for $8.98
We will just get the Liquid I.V. powder out of the way at the beginning. After receiving a packet of this salty hydration multiplier in every box for the last 2 years, I think I've hit every flavor and still haven't found one I have enjoyed. Don't get me wrong, I have used a few of them and they did come in handy when our family had Influenza, but I would like to try a different product at this point, and now we received TWO! How is everyone else feeling about this?
Rael Beauty Miracle Patch - FULL SIZE - Retail Value $5.98
The first full-size item I received in this month's box was a 24 pack of miracle patches. These invisible spot covers come in two different sizes (10 mm and 12 mm) and work to protect blemishes from dirt, draw out fluids, and provide a waterproof barrier. The package states that these are virtually undetectable so you can confidently wear them even during the day, but I'd have to disagree with that statement. I had a couple of zits pop up due to holiday stress, so I applied these little stickers and while they do blend in okay, my son asked, "Mom, what the heck do you have on your face?!" I can say, after 4 hours, my blemishes did seem a little less red and a little smaller in size, but I definitely wouldn't wear them out in public unless you want to answer some questions.
Hask Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner - FULL SIZE - Retail Value $1.98
The next item I received was this large foil packet of Repairing Deep Conditioner. Used to strengthen and restore dry and damaged hair, this may look like a sample, but each packet contains enough for 2-3 uses, and can be purchased in this quantity online. Free of sulfates, paragons, silicones, phthalates, gluten, and drying alcohol, this deep conditioner helps reduce split-ends and leaves your hair really soft and nourished. To use, massage into clean, wet hair, and leave on for 10 minutes and rinse well. I have really fine hair, and some conditioners leave it looking really greasy, but this wasn't one of them. While I kept it off of my roots, my ends looked and felt much better than before I used it, and it made for a perfect self-care evening when paired with a bubble bath and candle.
CoverGirl Simply Ageless Lash Plumping Mascara - FULL SIZE - Retail Value $9.97
I hoard all of the mascara, so I was excited to give this version a try. Utilizing a fluffy brush, this mascara not only instantly plumps and volumizes lashes, but also contains a serum and primer. I loved the applications this mascara provided, and felt it compared to my current mascara that costs almost triple what this does, but noticed it comes off a little too easily. I headed outside to shovel in some snowglobey snow, and in I came, looking like a raccoon. Okay for everyday, but don't plan on yawning or crying without some smearing happening!
Cetaphil Healing Ointment - Estimated Value $1.00 - Buy a 3 oz container for $9.97
Now here is what I'm talking about! Because of the crazy winds and harsh temps, my hands are out of control dry, so I was super pumped to receive this tube of Cetaphil Healing Ointment. I have used Cetaphil for years per my Dermatologists recommendation, but have only recently discovered this lifesaving ointment! Used to protect and relieve your dry, chapped, or irritated skin, this does go on a bit greasy, but gives immediate relief. I slather this goodness all over my hands before bed and slip a pair of socks over to keep it from smearing onto my bedding, and wake up with baby soft hands. Yay!
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - Estimated Value - $0.45 - Buy a 15 oz container for $14.12
Here I received another Cetaphil branded item, and because this is a brand I know well, I was happy to have a travel version of this moisturizing cream. For very dry to dry, sensitive skin, this cream claims to hydrate for 48 hours and fully restore skin barrier. With a super light natural scent, my kids who are very sensitive to fragrance, use this with no problem, and it has really helped keep my youngest sons eczema at bay. My favorite feature is that it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. Soaking in right away, you can carry on with your day without worrying about leaving smudges on everything you touch.
With an on-time delivery, and three full sized items, the Walmart's Winter Beauty Box was actually quite impressive. The calculated value of this $6.98 box was $22.38, which is over 3 times the cost of the box. I felt like the curation of this box was pretty typical for winter, and it included items I was hoping for. Overall, I was happy to try the new mascara, hair mask, and patch covers, without paying full price.
