Fall Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today we’re going to be talking about the fall Walmart Beauty Box. This is the first official box since the revamp. The box itself is white on the outside with the Walmart logo in red and pink lipstick swatches. Usually it’s glossy, but this one is matte.

So one thing that changed with the revamp is now you get a pamphlet that has the full size prices of the items in your box. I really wish that with this revamp they would have included some tissue paper or something in the box because it would’ve added a little bit of color and protected the items a bit. I have some squished squeezy tubes in this box.

So the first product we have is the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original. This has oil absorbing rice starch and is supposed to be light on your hair and not weigh it down. This isn’t my ultimate favorite dry shampoo but I know a lot of people do really like it.

Next up we have the Earth to Skin Honey Manuka Cleanser. This has Manuka honey extract and glycerin, which draw in water and replenish the skin by helping to create a protective skin barrier. I’m really happy with my current skincare routine, but this is interesting to me. I’ll let you know what I think of it.

Moving on we have the NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp. The Butter Glosses apply really smooth and silky, aren’t too sticky, which is one of my least favorite things about lip gloss and there’s a number of gorgeous fall colors. The thing about these glosses is you do get a sheer to medium coverage so they’re buildable without looking gloppy and they smell really good. This is probably my favorite thing in the entire box.

The second to last product we have is a pretty smashed and dented tube of Gold Bond Ultimate Strength and Resilience lotion. This is formulated with seven plumping moisturizers, three vitamins, proteins and lipids to replenish moisture and texture. Basically this will keep your skin radiant in the winter, which is always a good thing.

And the last product we have is the Anecdote Weekend Vibe perfume. This has pineapple water, sandalwood, pink passion fruit and whipped musk. This is in a roller ball which I do like because they’re great to throw in your handbag. I do really like the scent of this, to me it’s more spring/summer than fall/winter but I will be wearing it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of these items in your fall Walmart Beauty Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. I’d also love to know what you think of this new revamped box. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what will be in the winter box :).

March 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my March Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Wild Beauty. These are must have products that will be great and work for you no matter what you’re doing. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on top. The front is a see through minty green that is perfect for spring, with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Excitement level 100’ written in the same minty green.

IMG_5306

The first product we have is the Drybar Detox Clear Invisible Dry Shampoo. I’ve tried Drybar dry shampoos before and I do like them. I think they work well and they always smell good. Of course the worst thing about some dry shampoos is they can leave a residue behind so I really like the sound of a clear and invisible dry shampoo.

IMG_5318

Next we have something that I’m very familiar with, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I use this primer all the time, it hydrates the skin and gives you a great base to work with.

IMG_5319

Moving on we have the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can wear on it’s own, under your foundation or you can even use as a highlighter. I have one of these and I really like it. It smells great and it gives a nice subtle glow under foundation. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5320

The next product we have is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. This is a rich moisturizer with a luxe texture that is supposed to leave you feeling super hydrated. I haven’t tried a Drunk Elephant moisturizer but sounds like it’s right up my alley and I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5322

The second to last product we have is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. I’ve used this liner, it was forever ago, but I really liked it. It has a precise tip so you have a lot of maneuverability, glides on smooth and once it dries it’s not going anywhere. Definitely an eyeliner I recommend.

IMG_5323

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. I can’t even tell you how good this smells. It’s got the perfect mix of floral and fruity but it’s also got some freshness. If you haven’t smelled this and you get a chance, I recommend it. This is a great scent for spring and summer.

IMG_5324

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your March Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Blogmas Day Ten: Sephora Play, A Year In Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten! Today I thought it would be fun to go through the Sephora Play Boxes I’ve received this year and let you guys know what I’m still loving and what I’ve repurchased. I do a monthly favorites, so I won’t be going super in depth for each box. And full disclosure, I haven’t received my December Play Box yet, but I will be doing an unboxing. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first bag I received was February.

FBSP1

This was a great first bag of the year and I genuinely like everything in this bag. The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple has become one of my go to red lipsticks. I will leave a link down below to each post if you guys want more info on each of the products.

MRSP1

March brought a little bit of everything, which I always appreciate. The products that I use the most now out of this bag are the Amika Dry Shampoo, the Nars Bronzer and the Sephora Collection Mascara. I do really like that IT Cosmetics Cleanser, but I used the one I had and just haven’t repurchased yet.

APB1

With the April Box came a change in color of the bag and some great products. The Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream secured itself a place on my nightstand, I actually need to repurchase because mine is almost empty. You guys know how much I love the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream and the Make Up For Ever Primer is great.

MYSP1

The May Box reunited me with a skincare favorite, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. Gave me a summer skincare favorite, the KORA Organics Noni Glow Face Oil and I got a backup for one of my all time favorite mascaras, Benefit BADgal BANG!

JUSP1

June was another differently colored bag and it was very skincare heavy. The Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow was one of my absolute favorites during the summer. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer made itself back into the front of my primer drawer and since June you guys have seen how much I love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla.

JLSP1

In July I added to my always growing Bite Beauty collection in my lipstick drawer with the Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Glace, when I received this I already had this exact one but it was basically empty so I was happy to see this because this is one of my favorite shades. The Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet made it’s way onto my fragrance shelf, the OG Daisy is one of my all time favorite scents, but the whole Daisy collection is so nice.

AUSP1

The August Box was great, I loved the color of the bag and it was full of great products. Most of which I’m still using.

SPSP1

September was another fantastic bag. This is yet another month where I’m still using and loving everything in the bag. And it was a good mix of skincare and makeup products.

OCTSP1

In October I received a mini of one of my all time favorite, holy grail products, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I keep this one in my handbag makeup bag and it’s a great size to carry around. I was given another of the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer, also kept in my handbag makeup bag. And I think this is one of the first times this Sephora Play year that I’ve had genuine product disappointment. I was so excited to try the WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer and I did really like the feel of it when I put it on initially but there was something in there my skin did not like and it broke me out. But one good thing about Sephora Play is along with finding things you love, you get to try new products and not like them without paying full price for them.

NVSP5

The November box was honestly amazing. I so love everything in here and the bag itself is a lovely purple. I’m wearing three of these products right now actually, the Glamglow Glamstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. It’s all so good.

That about wraps it up for this post, Sephora has sent me a ton of amazing products this year. I love how they switched up the color of the bags and I’m excited to see what’s in my December Box. If any of you guys were doing Play this year I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, Sephora Play was and is definitely worth it and I’m excited to continue next year :).

Target Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a post that I wanted to do for a little while and that is a Target Beauty Box review. I mentioned in my review of the Target Men’s Box that I was sent that by mistake instead of what I actually ordered, but that was sorted quickly and now here we are. I had been hearing about the Target Beauty Box for a bit but I hadn’t tried it, and now that I subscribe to the Walmart Beauty Box I thought it would be interesting to compare the two. So before we get into it I want to mention that the box that I purchased is from June. When I made the purchase the July box was available, but after looking at the two I decided that this one had more items that I would end up using, so that’s what I went with. The box itself is white and the lid is bright and multicolored with birds and some landscape elements. In the middle is the Target logo with ‘beauty’ next to it in black. On the inside surrounding the products is light pink tissue paper.

TBB1

TBB2

So the first product we have is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. This is supposed to treat any damage you have and help to prevent split ends. I actually received this in my most recent Walmart box, and I have been trying it out. I won’t say too much because I want to talk about it in an upcoming post, but I have noticed that the ends of my hair have been extra soft.

TBB3

Next up we have the Herbal Essences Bio Renew Revitalize Cucumber and Green Tea Dry Shampoo. This is a dry shampoo that has no parabens, gluten or colorants. It’s pH-balanced and is color safe. Herbal Essences is a brand I have only briefly used but not for many years and I have a couple of dry shampoos that I really love, so we’ll see how this one stands up.

TBB4

Moving on, we have another dry shampoo but this one is the TRESemme Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo. This has mineral clay and citrus, doesn’t leave behind any residue like some dry shampoos can and you’re supposed to be left with what looks like day one, fresh, volumized hair. I also received this in my Walmart box and I have yet to try it but I will and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

TBB5

The second to last product we have is the Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask. This has a superfood blend that is supposed to get rid of oil and impurities and leave you with healthy glowing skin. You apply it in an even layer, wait for it to dry and once it has you peel it off. I really like Pixi and I love products like this so I’m excited to try it out.

TBB6

And the last product we have is the CND Vinylux Mini Duo in Romantique. This is a nail polish in a really pretty light pink shade and it comes with a top coat that is supposed to help it resist chips and last for seven days. I’m always buying new polishes, I’ve never used this brand before but I looked into them and it seems like they have a great range of colors. I’m interested to put this to the test and see how well it holds up. I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think.

TBB7

TBB8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did mention that I wanted to compare it to the Walmart box and overall I think they’re very similar. You get pretty much the same amount of products and sometimes the exact same products. With the Walmart box you get a bag and with this you don’t. This is a monthly box and Walmart does it quarterly, so you get four boxes a year, one box per season. And the price is different, this Target box is $7.00, you do get free shipping and free returns. The Walmart box is $5.00 and all you’re paying for there is shipping. And I will leave a link down below for the Target box.

Until next time, you can never subscribe to too many beauty boxes and I’d love to know what your favorite subscription/beauty box is :).
