Walmart Spring Beauty Box - Trendsetter 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.

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.

Contents of the Walmart Beauty Box with Walmart prices listed:

The total value of the Walmart box is $8.65 not including the foil packet items. This box was just ok. I was hoping for less foil packets. The last box box also had a low value value. I don't mean to sound greedy but I guess I was spoiled by the previous boxes with values in the $20's. I'll use all the items in the box though so it's still an ok box. 

Verdict: This box value is not as great as others have been but still worth $5.
