Walmart Beauty Box- Fall 2016

Today I’m gonna share what I got in my fall walmart beauty boxes! This is my second time getting them, and I think it’s super great! I love getting a chance to try out products that have been right under my nose at my trusty walmart, that for whatever reason I haven’t tried yet. I get the trendsetter, and the classic box. Both if my boxes arrived a lot later than it seemed like everyone else’s did.. I got my trendsetter box first so we will start with that..  

  Here is a picture of what the no looked like when I opened it, I love the blue and purple color scheme, my bedroom is done is blue and purple so that was a cool.  

 Here we have village naturals therapy bath salts, extra whitening toothpaste from Hello brand (was very excited to se this product is made in the USA, I’ve been wanting to use more USA based products), clean and clear deep action 90 second shower mask, very excited to try this I usually use my face way in the shower to save time so this will be fun to try, and Dove body wash in sweet cream and peony.  

 A biore charcole pore strip, which I already know I like because I have purchased them before, Dove deoderant cool essentials 48hr, cetaphil moisturizer (already tried this, not sure if your supposed to put it in your face or use it like lotion???), a sample of natures bounty hair skin and nails funnies, they tasted super good and I might purchase it next time I but vitamins.  

 The last thing was this burst bees cleaning oil… Im not a big oil person so not sure when I’ll get around to using this, and the packet is pretty large so I think you could get a couple uses out of it but if it’s oil won’t it leak out?? Hmm. T 


That’s everything that was in my trendsetter box, all very useful and practical items which I personally like getting. Now onto the classic box.. 

 Vaseline unscented lotion, Dove deoderant, Dove body wash, and Aussie mega hair spray. The dove items are the only repeats between these two boxes, which is nice because my winter boxes had a lot of the same items, although I do think I got this same hairspray in my winter box, which is fine with me because this is the hairspray I usually use anyways. Even the duplicates of the dove items doesn’t bother me because I just give one to my mom. 

 Another bath soak but in a different kind this is a nighttime one, cetaphil cleansing cloths (10 count! I checked at walmart and a full size pack had 25 wipes for $5 something so that’s pretty awesome), and roc multi correxion cream.  

 That’s everything! I really liked this seasons boxes and was glad there wasn’t as many duplicates as the winter boxes! And remember these boxes are just $5 each so I highly recommend it if your interested in getting into the beauty box game but wanna try out a cheaper option first!


Sandwich recipe!

Hey y’all, I made this pretty yummy sandwich for a lunch, so thought I would document it and share!  

 Used this flatout hungry girl flatbread that I got at walmart, which is only 90 calories! 

 I got this horseradish dip at my local apple orchard, but I’m sure you can find something similar at your grocery store. This is super yummy and adds a nice zing of flavor!  

 Yum yum! 

 Add some green stuff so you feel healthy! I used the market side baby spinach from walmart. 

 Used some Cajun turkey breast from the walmart deli, I think it was butterball brand?  

 Sliced up some of this bomb cheese, if you haven’t tried this cheese you are missing out! So good! 

 Fold it over and enjoy! I ate it with the bag of bones hot cheetos! So yummy, flavorful, and simple!

Salvage makeup haul

I went to a salvage store today, and got a bunch of makeup! So if you don’t know what a salvage store is, basically it’s a store that sells out of date or “damaged” items. I dont know how popular they are in other areas, but there are quite a few around where I live so I like to go every now and then. This time I got super lucky! The stores usually sell non perishable type foods like cereal, pasta, rice, candy, or body/hair care items, makeup, pet supplies sometimes, just very random stuff, basically whatever they can get at salvage price. All of the makeup I got was $.99, that’s it! I was super excited tbh. Below I will post pictures of the products and a few swatches, and the regular price of the item (I googled the product and wrote down either the walmart or target price, some of them I wrote both).  

Okay so I got five mascaras, these are the first two, the maybelline lash sensational mascara, one in blackest black ($6.29 @ target), and one in waterproof brownish black ($6.99 @ target, $6.25 @ walmart). I have seen the commercials for this mascara, don’t know how great it will work, usually I will just google reviews in the store before buying a product, but I was in a hurry and for $.99 I’m not that worried about it. 

 Here are the other three mascaras I got (actually I bought every one I seen except the falsies one cause I saw a review that it wasn’t very good..). Anyways, I got the revlon super length ($5.99 @ target). Covergirl The Super Sizer ($5.99 @ target, $5.94 @ walmart). Covergirl Lash Blast waterproof in black brown ($6.99 @ target). 

 Elf Hydrating Face Primer in clear ($5.19 @ target, $5.40 @ walmart).  

 Lippies!! From left to right we have covergirl caramel kiss 240 ($5.39 @ target). Covergirl creme 230 ($5.39 @ target), I think I’m gonna like this one a lot (I tried both covergirl lipsticks today and the formula went on very creamy and streaky, and like I thought I did not like the caramel kiss color). Nivea lip balm a kiss of mint & minerals ($2.39 @ target). Nivea lip balm in a kiss of olive oil & lemon ($2.39 @ target). Revlon color burst lip balm in demure 105 ($6.19 @ target). NYX soft matte lip cream in smlc13 Sydney ($5.99 @ target).   

 Lippies ❤

 Covergirl + olay simply ageless in 225 buff beige ($12.59 @ target)  

 Covergirl ready set gorgeous foundation in 115 buff beige ($6.30 @ walmart). Covergirl outlast stay fabulous 3 in 1 foundation in 855 soft honey ($8.59 @ target, $8.52 @ walmart).  

 Covergirl ready set gorgeous concealer in fair ($3.99 @ target).

Okay so that is everything I got, now remember I paid $.99 for each item, I added up the lower price option for each item and guys all of this makeup at regular price would have costed me around $95! I am just insanely happy about the great items I got for this great price! I’ve already tried out a few of the products (bought the stuff yesterday so I used some this morning). I used the covergirl the super sizer mascara, which went in really nice and hasn’t smudged it flaked so far today. I tried the covergirl outlast foundation and I actually think the soft honey shade really works for me, and the formula felt really nice. Also I used the elf primer, which I haven’t really noticed a diffence between using the primer and not using any, but I’ll have to make that judgment on a day that in doing more intensive stuff I believe than sitting around all day. And the last new thing I tried was the covergirl lipsticks, which I wrote a little review if under the picture. I’m very happy that I’m getting to try all of these products at this price, I’ve been getting more into makeup lately, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay even some smaller prices (like 5 or more dollars) when I just have/had no idea what shades and formulas I would like. I really amazes me I’ll be watching youtube or something and some ladies are like of this foundation was $10 so I just picked it up to try but it’s the wrong shade. Like y’all $10 isn’t a lot of money for something you know you like but dang for something that probably won’t even get used I just can’t fathom spending money like that on some face paint! Anyways hope you enjoyed reading this post, and I highly recommend looking up if there are any salvage stores in your area!!
