The Walmart Beauty Box is a seasonal box that is delivered around the beginning of a season and contains products that are deemed appropriate for that season. Towards the beginning of July I received the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box and it contained one full-size product, five deluxe samples, one perfume sample, and 3(ish) foil packet samples. The Walmart Beauty Box only costs $5 per box, the cost of shipping.

The first item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a bottle of Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Shampoo. Normally I stay away from shampoos that are in sample boxes as they irritate my scalp, however, the Clear Shampoo says that it’s a nourishing anti-dandruff shampoo so I’m going to give it a go. If you decided to head to the store to pick this one up I do recommend giving it a sniff first, to me it has the scent of the conditioner that comes in drugstore boxed hair dye.
The second item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a bottle of Dove Go Fresh Body Wash in Mandarin & Tiare Flower. I’ve actually received this in a different box and it’s really not that bad. You expect it to have a strong citrus or floral scent due to the mandarin and tiare flower respectively. That is not the case, the two actually balance each other out quite well. Once I run out of samples I might just go purchase the full-size of this
The third item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a set of three foil packets for the Jergens Natural Glow 3 Day Glow in Medium to Tan. This might have actually have been a rather good product to test out if the shade wasn’t medium to tan. If I went to a tanning bed or self-tanned I’d be a medium on a really good day so to try a medium to tan as a starter shade just wouldn’t look natural. Sadly, this is a worthless product for me.
The fourth item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a bottle of Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen. This has an SPF of 70 and is water-resistant for 80 minutes. Living in South Carolina in the middle of summer with a heat wave hitting this was a great thing to see in a box, PLUS it doesn’t have a strong sunscreen scent so bonus!
The fifth item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box is a container of Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream. First can we talk about how cute the packaging for this is? Adorable! Secondly, if you watch the video you’ll see that I show you how this has a nice thick, almost whipped texture to it, I’m in love with it. Lastly, the scent is just a classic moisturizer scent. This is for sure going to be a repurchase!
The sixth item, and only full-size one, in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a NYC Liquid Lipshine in Fashion Ave Fuchsia. I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of this product. I’ve hated how the wand in this product was shaped since it first came out. It just doesn’t pull a decent amount of product from the container nor does it give an even application.
The seventh item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a bottle of St. Ives Green Tea Scrub. I’ve always been a huge St. Ives fan and constantly go back to their Apricot Scrub but I have to admit I was super intrigued when I saw the Green Tea Scrub on the shelves. I like that this not only clears blackheads but supposedly calm redness as well. The scent is a bit overpowering so I’d give it a sniff before buying, and if you’re still unsure about buying check the travel section in the beauty/health section as I’ve seen these travel friendly sizes there before.
The last item in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box was a One Direction You & I perfume sample. It seems that every box has a perfume sample and so far I haven’t been disappointed by what was included. This one is no different, it has a kind of sweet floral scent to it which I like. I will say that it does have a bit of that “cheap alcohol”, that some perfumes have, to it. I looked and the first ingredient is actually alcohol so I won’t be using this on the skin but it still smells nice so I’ll probably just use it to give my clothes a light mist.

So that was everything in the Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box. While this box didn’t have a huge value, only $7.72, I think that I’ll actually windup at least testing out most of these products. That is a big achievement for a subscription box with me.
