I've mentioned before that I am a member of Influenster and often get their Vox Boxes. Who wouldn't love getting fun little surprises and better yet, it's free!
Since I enjoy the Vox Boxes, I recently signed up for the Wal-Mart Beauty box. I have read about other bloggers who have done it and I thought it might be a good time to get some new products before I start back to school in the fall. After cleaning my bathroom and going through all the extra "stuff" I have I questioned myself on why I even signed up.
First off the box is completely FREE! You just pay $5 for shipping. From what I've seen others get, the amount of product way exceeds the $5 anyway so why not give it a try. I asked one of my blogger friends if everyone gets the same products in their box and she mentioned that it was personalized and said that "us young folks would probably get different things than what she got". I remember her saying that there is a survey to fill out which determines what you get. I remembered all of this AFTER I signed up. I did not remember filling out any survey but I did put in my birthday. Hmmm, I bet they send you products based on your age????? Okay folks this is the ONLY time I ever told a little fib about my age. I didn't want under eye cream and serums for wrinkles so I made myself a little younger than I actually am. I wanted to get fun stuff in my box like nail polish and hair ties!
Okay so even before my box came I had a mental list of things I did not want/need and a list of stuff I was hoping for.
Things I did NOT need
Shampoos and conditioners
Things I hoped for
Deodorant (who couldn't use that)
What I got
1. Best Product in the box ( in my opinion): Full size Vaseline Intensive Care healing serum. I love the Vaseline moisturizing lotions and I use them regularly, so I know this product cost $7.97 which was way worth the cost of shipping for this box!
2. Full size Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick: The color is Galdiolus which is a bright red. I've been wanting to get a red lipstick anyway for certain "fun" occasions but this is definitely not something I would be wearing everyday. I don't normally wear Revlon lip color but for the sake of this post I looked up the cost of it and ironically it is also $7.97. I also got a $1.00 coupon off my next Revlon lipstick.
3. Sample size L'Oreal restoring shampoo, conditioner, and repair treatment. I didn't need any more of this stuff so I wasn't overly excited about it.
4. Sample size of Burt's Bee Renewal firming Serum ( apparently my memo of my "younger" age did not go through in time...lol).
5.Sample of Micellar cleansing water, which is some sort of facial hydrator. It came with a $2.00 coupon as well. I don't see myself using this. If anyone wants it, let me know!
Final Review: I am very pleased about the Vaseline moisturizer because I would have bought it anyway, but the rest of the stuff I could take or leave. This was considered the "Summer Box". I think now that I signed up for this subscription that I should be getting a "fall" and "Winter" box as well.
Another Summer Box I received recently was the SunshineVox Box. This is COMPLETELY free compliments of Influenster. You don't even have to pay shipping!
Seeing this bright yellow box on my doorstep earlier this summer was enough to immediately put me in a great mood. I was excited to see what was inside.
My favorites so far are the Sinful Colors nail polish ( which I am currently wearing), the color is called Thimbleberry and the Vaseline Spray. As you know I am already a fan of the Vaseline moisturizer. I just started using spray- on sunscreen this year and have become a fan, so I thought the spray moisturizer was fun!
Other products in my box: Dickinson's witch hazel cleansing cloths ( and several coupons for it), Infusium moisture replenish leave in smoothing crème, Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds, and a coupon for a free package of Barkthins.
I have gone to a few local store and have not been able to find the Barkthins. I finally went on the website to see which stores carry them and I hope to get them sometime this week. I'm not a fan of spicy things so I was going to share these Sriracha Almonds with Scott when he comes back from his trip.
Which items would you be excited about? Have you ever tried Barkthins? If so which kind? I think the chocolate covered pumpkin seeds might sound good. -M
