Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 Review

Walmart Beauty Box - is a quarterly subscription service that will send you a variety of beauty products each season. All items are available at Walmart and you also receive coupons. They ask for your birthdate when you sign up, if you are under 35 you will receive the trendsetter box, and over 35 you will get the classic box. Walmart used to let you order samples from the website for free, but with the subscription box craze, that has now changed. I will not list prices since everything is sample size.
Cost: $5/season - meant to cover shipping charges
How Often: Quarterly
Ships To: United States via USPS 
 
It comes in a plain box clearly labeled Walmart.  These pics are from my sister, who receives more than one subscription, and since the items were all mixed together we are not entirely sure which ones were with which boxes. So, this is a blended review! Sorry so late on this sis!
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil - Basic face oil. I believe this was in both boxes.
L'Oréal Revitalift Miracle Blur - This is definitely one of my favorite drugstore finds. It blurs lines wrinkles and pores. This can be worn both under or over makeup.
Jergens Natural Glow - This is probably the most popular self-tanner on the market, and my least favorite. I think this stuff works well for those who already have a natural base, but does not work well for those using a self-tanner to develop one. The primary reason I can't stand this stuff is the scent.
Aussie Mega Hairspray - Basic hairspray. I love the purple packaging associated with this brand.
Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair - This includes micro-droplets of Vaseline and works very well on overly dry skin. Another favorite find.
Act Advanced Care Plaque Guard - The flavor is clean mint.
Burts Bees Renewal Firming Night Crème - This is mostly made with natural ingredients, and it's infused with white hibiscus and apple.
Roc Multi Correction 5-in-1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream - Helps restore elasticity and firmness.
Neutrogena Acne Correct and Cover Pink Grapefruit Moisturizer - I did not know this even existed. Pink Grapefruit is the best for clearing up any acne issues. But I'm really curious how the tint works, so I will have to pick this up and try for sure. I am disappointed this is simply a swatch sample, I think at least a 1 oz sample should have been included.
Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream - I also think this is a useless sample. If this was perhaps a 1 oz sample size I think you could really get an idea if you liked this. But this is just not enough product to really try it.
Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream Moisturizer - I love that this is fragrance free.
Colgate Optic White Express White Fresh Mint Toothpaste - It's always great to get extra toothpaste from a box. I'm not sure I believe it does any good at whitening, but it can't hurt, right?
Banana Boat Sun Comfort SPF 30 - Basic sunscreen. I always like receving sunscreen, regardless of the size. The smaller sizes work for my purse and the larger for my trips.

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer and Restorative Night Cream - This is a great trusted brand. I haven't tried either one of these products but you generally can't go wrong with anything Aveeno.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser - I love the Cetaphil moisturizers but have never tried the cleanser. I think this is a good size to get a feel for it.
Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick - Have I mentioned that lately I am really liking lip crayons? They are just so smooth and easy to use. Not that lipstick is ever really difficult.
Vera Wang Embrace Fragrance - Vera Wang is at Walmart now? Apparently just the fragrance lines are and some kitchen items.
Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser - I'm hearing about a lot of face cleaners that are currently using baking soda in them. I would think that would also help to exfoliate.
Curel itch Defence Body Wash - I bet this is quite calming for those suffering from eczema.
John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shampoo - I didn't even know this was in a travel size. This stuff works great on my hair so always good to see it.
Ceravè  Healing Ointment Skin Protect - This is non-greasy. Heals and protects.
Burts Bees BB Cream - This is totally on my list to try. This sample is in light/medium.
L'Oréal True Match - This also deserved a much bigger sample, rather than just a swatch. I do like how there are so many shades to this line that you can be certain you will find a pretty good match. 

Some Random pics of the items, again, not entirely sure which products went with which box.
Quite a good selectin for this seasons Walmart Beauty Box!
