I received my Walmart Beauty Box - Spring edition yesterday! Let's dive right in.
As with most subscription boxes, you open it to find tissue paper and a card of some sort.
There are several sample/travel sized products, as well as some coupons.
I laughed when I saw this because Sunnee recently posted about it. This is Caress body wash, the 'fine fragrance' line, in the Adore Forever scent. This stuff apparently has micro beads of scent, or something like that . . . ? I'm all about body washes, so I'll be happily trying this.
This is the L'Oreal Paris - Total Repair 5 shampoo and conditioner. It says it is for 'damaged, overworked hair.' My hair is not in great condition but I don't know that it's damaged and I know it's not overworked. I mean, heck, I am just a wash-n-go girl. I'm kinda over the excitement of trying new hair products. Well, first of all, I really want to get my hair cut and I just keep putting it off. It's way longer than what I prefer, and I feel that just adds to the crappiness of it. Also, I prefer 2-in-1 products because I'm lazy. But I will go ahead and try these anyway.
Or maybe I should just go get my dang hair cut first.
I love lotions but for some reason I was disappointed to see this one. I don't know why I always think of Palmer's Cocoa Butter and some cheap, bottom shelf, product of the '70s type thing. ?! LOL I will laugh hysterically if I end up loving this. I can't seem to find a decent hand lotion anymore, so here's hoping!
The little sample packet of Skin Therapy Oil didn't get me very excited either. I'm not into extra face products, don't do the serums and all that stuff. Maybe I should be since I'm an old lady now. I guess I'll give it a try and see what I think. Also, with these little packets, is it ever really enough to even know if it's doing anything?
I was super excited to see a Burt's Bees product, then sighed when I saw it was another face serum. *sigh* This one is their Renewal - Intensive Firming Serum, with hibiscus and apple. I'll probably try this before the Palmer's one, just because Burt's Bees is more exciting to me.
I wasn't sure what to think when I pulled this Lady Gaga perfume sample out of the box. I'm not into fancy perfumes. Just give me a cheapie bottle of body mist in a simple scent and I'm good to go. But hey, I can spritz on something more upscale if I like the scent. Unfortunately, I hate this scent. Is the name of this scent Fame? Or Black Fluid? I don't even know. It's described as 'Tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of Orchidea, with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.'
This will go into a friend-mail or get tossed. I have no interest in it.
For coupons in this box, there is a $3.00 one for any Burt's Bees Renewal item, $1.00 of Palmer's face oil, and a free dry spray antiperspirant from Dove, Degree, or Axe.
I'm a little disappointed with this box. I don't know why. I mean, I didn't get any makeup or nail products that I wouldn't use anyway, so I should be glad. And it is basically a free box, only $5.00 to cover shipping. I've purposely stayed away from watching videos until I received this, because I didn't want to know what might be in mine. I went ahead and watched one this morning and that lady had a different lotion in place of the Palmer's one. She had also mentioned being a little bummed by this box, and said she'd seen videos of the younger ladies getting much more interesting products. I'm going to go watch a couple more videos now, see what other things are popping up in this Spring Box. I also wonder if there is a way to change our settings for our subscription. I'm pretty sure the boxes go by age group, but I really don't remember for sure what was all involved when signing up.
Oh well, it's still fun, and it's cheap.
Like me! =P
