Spring Walmart Beauty Box - Classic Box

Last year Walmart ventured into the subscription box market with a beauty box. The box ships 4 times a year for spring, summer, fall and winter. The best part of this box is the price. Ready for it? It's just $5 per shipment to cover shipping and handling costs. Yep it's only $5 per box. My guess is these are brands that Walmart has a contract with and they probably get the items for free which is why the box is only $5 to cover shipping costs.

Recently Walmart introduced a second version of their beauty box called the classic box. The price is the same but they didn't really say what the difference was from the first box, now called the Trendsetter box. 

Price: $5 per season shipped 4 times a year.  

The Good:

Price: $5, doesn't get much lower than that.

Drugstore brands: I love getting luxury products but they can be pricey to buy. This box will contain items that can be found at Walmart which means reasonably priced.

The Not So Good:

Drugstore brands: If you're not into drugstore brands then this is probably not the box for you.

The total value of the Walmart box is $28.92. This box totally makes up for the lower than normal value of the trendsetter box. It seems like this box is geared more towards us women "of a certain age". I see a lot of serums and creams in this box. I'm actually totally ok with that though because you know I'm a fan of the travel size products. I also noticed the one makeup product was a nude color, nothing bold but a classic color. I'm still very happy with this box and will use 90% of the items in it. 

Verdict: This box was pretty great. I added this one to my Walmart subscription boxes.
