Walmart Beauty Box!!


I believe this is the first Walmart Beauty Box that they sent out.  They send this box I believe every 3 months.  The box is free but you do have to pay for the shipping & handling which is $5.00.

A sample of Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj.

Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Deodorant.   This is a 1.6 oz stick.  I don't mind that I received this in the box since I will end up using it at some point.

 Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo.  This is a good size sample to try out.  The size of this sample is 1 fl oz.

Dove Advanced Hair Series Conditioner.  This is the same size as the shampoo so a good size to try out.  I like that they included both shampoo and conditioner in the box.  The size is 1 fl oz.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil.  This is Macadamia Oil for the hair.  I don't like putting any kinds of oils in my hair so this will be traded.  The size is .4 fl oz.

L'OREAL Glossy Balm.  The color they send is #220 Innocent Coral.  I'm still deciding if I should open this or just trade it since I have so many lip balms already.  This looks like it might be full size.

COVERGIRL Glowing Nights glosstinis.  This is a grey/black color.  This will be perfect for halloween.  The size is .11 fl oz.

They also put in some tiny samples in the box.

 Overall I think this is a good box for only $5.00.  They put in a good amount of samples to try out and nice sizes also.

September BIRCHBOX Review!!


Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that is only $10.00 a month or $110.00 a year.  You will receive 4-5 beauty samples in each box that are tailored to your profile.

Like last month they let you choose one item that you wanted to receive in your box.  The item that I picked was the Davines Oi Conditioner.

The box this month has a really cute design.

-Davines Oi Conditioner.  This is the item I choose this month.  This conditioner is loaded with apricot butter and roucou oil.  This is a detangler that protects and also softens your hair.  The full size is $32.00.

-Davines shampoo and oil.  They included these 2 packets in as a bonus which is great that they are the same brand.  The full size for these items are $26.00-$41.00.

-Acure Organics Day Cream.  This is made with goth kola stem cells and is supposed to firm and protect your skin.  I've received a few different day creams in the past few months so I have no idea when I will be using this one.  The full size is $18.99.

-Atelier Cologne in Vanille Insensee Fragrance.  This is one item I was not happy at all to see in the box.  I don't like received colognes in boxes since I usually don't like the smell of them.  I will be trading this one.  The full-size is $75.00-$185.00.

-Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar.  This is a pretty shade.  This leaves your lips hydrated and so soft.  I really like this product a lot.  The full size is $8.00.

-Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit.  This comes with the cleanser and also a muslin cloth, and is a birchbox exclusive.  I have not tried this out yet but I will be trying it out soon. I was also very happy to see this in the box and it came in a cute little blue box.  The full-size is $24.50.

This was a great box for me.  I once again will be using almost everything in the box and whatever I don't use I will just trade.

Glossy Box is a monthly subscription that is $21.00 per month.  With your subscription you will receive 5 beauty products in each box.

This month came a little later than usually.  The box was also a little different then the ones we usually get.  This box is more squared.

This month was also the 3rd year for GLOSSYBOX.

-ESLOR Firming Collagen Day Cream.  This cream contains natural skin-firming ingredients.  It has ginseng extract, hydrolyzed marine collagen, avocado, wheat germ and sesame oils.  This cream is supposed to prevent the early appearance of wrinkles.
The size they sent us was a .34 oz sample.  The full size is 1.7 oz and is $85.00.

-KRYOLAN FOR GLOSSYBOX Highlighter in Cashmere.  This highlighter is a special-edition for the third birthday.  You can use this highlighter on cheekbones, eyes, or lips.  The full size is $18.95.

-UBERLISS Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner.  I always like it when I get shampoo and conditioner in boxes since I know I will use them.  I like that they also included both the shampoo and the conditioner in the box.  Each bottle is 2 fl oz.  The full size shampoo is $23.90 for a 12 fl oz and the full size of the conditioner is $25.90 also for a 12 fl oz.

-SPARITUAL Explor color Collection.  The color I received is called Magnify.  This is a really nice pink color.  The full size is $12.00.

-EYEKO Skinny Liquid Eyeliner.  So this is just ok for me since I don't use liquid eyeliners so I'll be trading this one.  I received a .035 oz sample.  The full size is .07 and is $16.00.

This this box was pretty good for me.  I'll be using most of the items in this box and the rest I'll just trade.

Sudzclub is a monthly subscription service.  They will send you all the basic toiletries that you need each month to your house or dorm room.  They send you all your toiletries in a cute package.  Sudzclub sent me this bag to review.  

They have a few subscription options.  
-For one month its $29.99 per month.
-Three months its $24.99 per month.
-Six months its $22.99 per month.
-For a one year subscription its only $20.00 per month.  

They have 2 different promotions going on right now, the first one is use code "SUDZCLUB5" for $5.00 off your next purchase if you click here and the other promotion is get 20% off all products if you click here.  
This is a great service to get since you will never run out of the essentials that you need every month and this is great for college students.  

-Daily Defense Shampoo this is enriched with Macadamia Oil.
-Daily Defense Conditioner that is also enriched with Macadamia Oil.
They are both full size products which is great.  On amazon they are $13.89 for both.

I like the fact that they covered the top of the shampoo and conditioner bottles with clear wrap so they wouldn't spill in the bag.  

 -Daily Defense Body Wash that is enriched with Macadamia Oil.
I couldn't find this online so I'm just taking a guess at how much it is and I'll say $8.00.

 -Razz bath & shower sponge.
This is probably around $1.00.

-Colgate Extra Clean Toothbrush.
 They have a pack of 12 on amazon for $12.25 so about $1.02 for one brush.

-Colgate Triple Action Toothpaste.
On amazon a pack of 5 go for $13.50 so for one is about $2.70.

-3 pack of Gillette 2 razors.
I could not find this either online so I'm going to say this is about $1.50.

-Gillette Satin Care shaving cream.
This is the smaller bottle so I'm going to say its probably $2.00.

-Lady Speed Stick in powder fresh scent.
On amazon for a pack of 6 is $12.58 so for one its about $2.09.

-NYC long wearing nail polish in the color 109 pink promenade cream.
On amazon this nail polish is $3.47.  I think they added this as an extra item in the bag.

-3 Hair ties.
I think they also added this as an extra in the bag and I'm going to say this goes for about $1.00.

They also included a coupon for $20.00 off on UBER.  So all together for the items I might be a little off on total since I couldn't find everything but around $37.00.  But they also included the cute bag and the $20.00 off coupon so this bag has a value of over $50.00 for everything.
