First Impressions


Although we still have almost a full month of summer officially left, the chilly nights and shorter days are definitely giving off fall vibes. With the local county fairs over and school starting in two weeks, it's time to get back to reality. I am sooo not ready for fall, but I can say, receiving the Fall 2023 Walmart Beauty Box early did ease the pain of this transition and I discovered some neat, new products. Read below to find out just what this season's box had in store.


This quarter we received a pamphlet detailing the self-care collection offered for fall. With over 12 different options listed, you are guaranteed to receive seven 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?

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, Fragrance Free 1 oz. - Estimated Value $0.75


I've been subscribed to the Walmart Beauty box for as long as I can remember, and I do believe I have received a product from Cetaphil almost every single season. Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather receive this than another Liquid I.V. drink pack, but I'd love to see more variation in brands. Back to Cetaphil, I do really like this brand. As a young teenager that struggled with acne, my dermatologist recommended this cleanser time and time again. Now that my skin has settled down, I have gotten a bit more adventurous with my cleansers, but can appreciate the functionality of this Fragrance Free Daily Facial Cleanser.

It truly is gentle and contains Glycerin and Vitamin B5 and B3 for hydration. Perfect for packing in a travel case, I do like the size, and it really does come in handy when at conferences and on vacation. Not a very exciting start to this month's box, but definitely a useful one!

ITK Clay Color Changing Mask (Full Size) - Retail Value $14.97


I can honestly say, the box just got a lot more exciting! Full size products always amp me up, and because I love clay masks so much, I was really excited for this product. Sheet masks terrify my husband, and while clay masks are a close second for him, this was totally worth it. With skin tightening properties, and a fun color changing aspect, I loved applying this product.

Made with kaolin clay, jojoba seed oil, and glycerin, this mask wasn't gritty or smelly, but applied smooth and had only a clean smelling odor. Going from white to peach, this mask dries fast and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. Besides being totally awesome, because it is full size, it is almost double the cost of the box in value! Yay!

Thayers Natural Remedies Soak It Up Liquid Moisturizer, 1 oz. - Estimated Value $7.59


Thayers is a brand that's been around since 1847, but I can honestly say that I've never tried their products. Because I enjoy trying new things, I was intrigued, especially since the label mentions being made with 97% natural origin ingredients. With a title like "Soak It Up 80HR Liquid Moisturizer" I was impressed, but did it fit the bill? Thin in consistency, this moisturizer wasn't what I was expecting when applying.

Made with snow mushroom, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter, it then made more sense. Drying quickly, this didn't leave my skin feeling wet or heavy, but rather cool and hydrated. While I can't say if I noticed hydration for 80 hours after applying, I can say this was a great moisturizer for normal skin that dries fast and doesn't leave your hands greasy after application. A great inclusion for a fall box, and a great addition to my purse!

Adriana Grande, Thank U, Next Body Mist 1.7 oz - Estimated Value $3.22


Honestly, I don't think I've worn body mist since my mom stuck the Victoria's Secret versions in my Christmas stocking back in high school. A little nostalgic for sure, I had visions of heavy floral scents with this version in mind, and boy was I wrong! Very light and the perfect amount of sweet, I could pick up on notes of pear and raspberry with a hint of sugar. Definitely not overpowering, this is a great fragrance to spritz, and one that is perfect to throw in an overnight bag to give you the perfect amount of freshening up.

Carol's Daughter Born to Repair Moisture Treatment 1 oz. - Estimated Value $2.05


Receiving any "Carol's Daughter" item makes me happy, as it reminds me of my grandma and my mom. Beside's the brand name, I have had good luck with these products in the past, though I had not tried the Born to Repair 60-second moisture treatment before. I have very fine hair and it snarls and tangles extremely easily. Because I've been working on growing this mop out for the last 10 years pairing that with highlights, I am in need of moisture, and this was a neat way to achieve that. Spritzing in my hair after shampooing, I let this sit on my head for 1 minute. When the timer went off, I rubbed in my conditioner and rinsed. Because I have a lot of hair, this didn't give me enough for more than one use, but I did notice a difference. Also, the fruity, clean smell is amazing!

KISS imPRESS Press-On Falsies Eyelash Clusters Kit - Estimated Value $5.98


I am not a false lash gal, me and my "Too Faced Better Than Sex" mascara have gotten along just fine without them. Don't get me wrong, I tried applying a strip of them once, and I couldn't get them to stick and never tried again. That being said, I've never tried the "clusters", so I was intrigued. With 8 little bunches of lashes and a tweezer, I gave these a whirl, and definitely rode the struggle bus.

Because this isn't a full size pack, you are given a tweezer instead of the application tool. That was my first problem. It was very hard to grab the cluster and stick it on when you didn't have the press. Second of all, they just felt odd on. I did manage to apply 4 clusters to one of my eyes, and honestly in the photo you can hardly tell which one has the fake lashes. For the amount of time it took to apply, I can just live without them. I would however, now like to just try them for fun using the actual press! Does anyone use these on the regular?

Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation Sample Card


The last item we received was a sample card of Revlon foundation. I appreciated the inclusion of 12 different colors, but the fact that there was hardly even a single swipe made it hard to color match and test. I used light tan for my forehead, tan sand and creamy natural mixed for my one cheek, and hazel for the other. The consistency felt nice, but receiving on a sample makes it hard to gauge what it's actually going to be like. A neat way to give it a try, but I'd need a few more cards to get the full gist.


Like I mentioned above, we kept busy this summer with baseball and our local county fairs. Entering a slew of vegetables and flowers, Buxton was a great helper and only licked half of my foundation off!


With an extra early fall delivery, I was pleasantly surprised to see Walmart Beauty Box on my doorstep so soon! Though there were less picks this season, I can fully say this box was definitely worth the $6.98 price. Walmart  has been upping their game lately, and while I didn't have great luck with the lashes, I did like giving them a try, especially at a reduced price. Overall, I utilized every product included and was really excited that they included a full size item. With this curation, I am already excited to see what they will have up their sleeve for the winter quarter!

Box came! Got the 2 of things I wanted most so I’m happy. Bummed I didn’t get the Revlon Foundation color samples because I have such a hard time finding the right shade. Here’s what was in my Fall V2B box:
Impress Lashes, Thayers Moisturizer, Cetaphil Cleanser, TPH Curl Cream, TPH Shampoo, Covergirl Color Correcting Primer foil packs, FM Wet N Wild Face Gems.
Pretty sure the primer and face gems were left over, throw ins. I’ve gotten both before.
Just happy I got 2 items I really wanted.

Still nothing. Anyone else?
I reached out and their response was:
“We appreciate your patience while our team takes extra care to pack your box with products that fit your profile and ensure it meets our shipping standards”.
Yeah, sure, like I get stuff that fits my profile!
And just what do they mean by ‘shipping standards’?

Monica, mine just came yesterday (Sat.). I had gotten the BeautySpaceNK box, and I think those were being sent out after the basic one. Did you select that one, too, or are you still waiting on the first one? In either case, maybe soon? Good luck!

I was charged for the fall box and told I would be receiving no box plus no refund. Customer service was rude and disappointing. Although I sent them a change of address before they shipped the box and the box was returned to sender, they told me their ‘policy’ was that they wouldn’t refund the price or resend the box. They suggested I pay for a second box if I’d like to receive one this season. I’ve had to turn to my credit card company to dispute the charge based on principal. I guess Walmart, a company owned by billionaires, just can’t afford to pay their workers living wages or give refunds when they don’t deliver a product.

Haven’t received mine yet; I suppose it’s too soon.

Another awful Walmart box for me and the only thing I got the same as yours is the lashes (which I can’t use) and Cetaphil which is so ordinary. I got a mask that I couldn’t get to open that went in the trash, Covergirl mascara, which was worth the price of the box, not a favorite, but can use. There is some soapy sponge thing that has no instructions. I really could have used the moisturizer.

Why do you need instructions on how to use a “soapy sponge thing?”

Reply ButtonReply


I don’t think you really need instructions to use soap. I got the same thing. The only confusing thing is that it says it is brightening, which usually indicates a facial product, but it is meant to be used in the shower on your body. Maybe you could use it on your face, too. I don’t know.

I received Version 3 on 9/6. Included the Cetaphil facial cleanser, the Thank U Next body mist, the Revlon foundation samples and the KISS false eyelashes. Also received a full size Covergirl Lash Blast Cleantopia mascara ($10.48), a 2 oz Haritage Gentle Daily Shampoo, and a 2.5 oz Raw Sugar Hair Masque. Although this seemed like quite a haul of good sized items, I was disappointed. I’ll give away the body mist, falsies and mascara. Will probably give away the hair products as well, since they do not provide improvements over what I currently use.

It was nice not to get a pile of foil packets like we have in the past. I would have liked to receive some facial moisturizers and treatments, and some other makeup besides mascara (only use waterproof). I estimate the worth at about $24, which would be great if I wanted to use any of the products.

I know the boxes are all different but I hope I get some of these in my box. Can’t beat it for the price

Thanks for commenting, Cheyy! You really can’t beat the price. This sub is one of the most inexpensive out there, and sometimes they send some really great items!

Fingers crossed… hoping for Thayers and Lashes. Hopefully NO perfume! I’ll keep you posted.

Still waiting. They billed me a month ago.
