Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2014

My Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box finally got here!  I've been anxious for it ever since my mom called and said she'd already received hers.  I got charged a few days later and voila! Here is my box!
This box comes out four times a year and is full of beauty and skincare samples.

The Cost: $5 in shipping.  The box is free!

What You Get: Whatever is new in the land of beauty!  Walmart favorites and trusted beauty brands.
Pretty thrilled with my box!  For $5 this is a fun and affordable way to try new things and dip your toes into some products from reliable brands.  My box turned out to be different than my moms and different from the boxes I've seen so far.

Ponds Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream-1.75oz- I'm excited about this because Ponds is pretty great. This has lactic acid in it so it's going to clean off any layer of dead skin and reveal the soft new skin underneath.  I'll try this and see how I like it.  It's a nice affordable brand so that makes it worth it. This is also a very nicely sized sample.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion-1oz- Hydrates for 24 hours and dries with a powder-like feel. Probably because it has flour in it? Haha!  I'm putting this in someone's stocking!  It's a perfect travel size for stashing in your coat pocket or purse.
John Frieda Hair Care-  Big foil packets of Touchably Full shampoo, conditioner and a volume styling product.  Well, I have super fine, thin hair so I need all the volume I can get.  Maybe I'll use this tomorrow and see how it goes.  I tried something... Nick Chavez Volumizing Shampoo from a Blush Beauty box and it made my hair feel like straw afterwards.  Hopefully this doesn't do that.
L'Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum and Day Cream- More foil packets but I'm okay with that, they've got plenty of product in them.  I'd like to try these.   They both have alcohol in them, though.  That's not a good sign.  We'll see.
Ponds Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes- Aww, only 5 towelettes!  Well, I'll save it for travelling then because these are the BEST on the airplane.  Feeling grungy?  A face wipe will make you happy.  Of course, it'll take all your make up off but then you can waste more time putting it back on.  Or just show off your happy, clean skin. :)

Olay Tone Perfecting Cream- Okay, so I've tried this before.  In fact I got a HUGE jar of it in an Influenster VoxBox.  It has such a powerful smell, it's really killer.  Why even bother perfuming a face cream?  I mean... as long as it doesn't smell like dandelions or something, a moisturizer that goes right next to your nose doesn't need to smell as strong as a perfume you put on your wrist.
L'Oreal Color Vibrancy Antioxidant Shampoo, Conditioner and Shock Treatment- I think the Shock Treatment needs a new name.  It sounds... ominous.  But anyway, this is a color protecting set.  The shock treatment is actually a hair mask to use in place of the conditioner.  Since I dye my hair a shade of red, I probably need to use this, too.
Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Lotion- This is for dry to very dry skin.  I'm using this as soon as I've finished with this post.  I lied.  I just used this right now. It smells soooo good and is silky smooth.  Love it!

VERDICT:  What's not to love about a $5 box of awesome samples?!  I'm pretty excited about the Ponds.  I'd love to love one of the shampoos, we'll see which one I end up liking better.

If you want to sign up for the Walmart Beauty Box, you do that here on this webpage: Walmart Beauty Box.  I think that sign ups for the Winter Box are still available so if you sign up now you'll get a box similar (but likely not identical) to mine.  My mom got a different set of items that included Cover Girl lipstick, a body wash and a Maybelline face powder of some kind.

If you happen to be reading this and Winter signups are closed, sign up anyway and you will receive the next seasons box (Spring).  Once you subscribe, you'll be charged $5 for each box until you cancel.


  1. It's interesting that you think the Olay cream smells really strong - I was using it a while back and I remember it having a scent, but not being ridiculously perfumey. Maybe they changed it! Or maybe I'm crazy! I have a bunch of those L'Oreal Color Vibrancy Antioxidant Shampoo samples from different sources and I like it... of course I don't need to buy any because I have so many samples. :P

    1. I think I must just have a sensitive nose or something! It's probably me and you're not crazy at all :D That is the nice thing about samples... you never actually have to go out and buy anything. Hah!

    2. My box was pitiful. Nothing like this one. All small samples

    3. Mine really only had three good ones and the rest was foil samples but for $5 it was still worth it. There were others who got MUCH better ones than I did but it sounds like yours was even worse :\ That's disappointing.

  2. i per-paid for mine, i received and email that it has shipped on 12/08/14 its now 01/07/15 and no beauty box still :(

    1. That's not good! I suggest contacting them to find out what is going on!
