Here's What You Really Get In Walmart Beauty Boxes

The Walmart beauty box will keep you well-stocked with the latest wellness, skin, hair, and makeup must-haves. The subscription service easily may be the best value around, as subscribers will get a seasonal shipment four times per year for free and pay just $5 for shipping (via My Subscription Addiction). There's an average of five or six products per box, and a lineup might include items like a dry conditioner, face wash, lip oil, charcoal-infused toothbrush, and calming magnesium supplement (via Instagram). 

Occasionally reviewers of the beauty box have noticed more health than beauty items, or a shade of cosmetics that isn't the best fit, but overall consumers seem to agree the goods for the cost are fantastic (via Consumer Affairs). Says one reviewer, "I really do enjoy these beauty boxes because it gives you a chance to try sample size items and saves you money in the long run. They are cheaper than other beauty boxes, but still have really good items in the box." Adds another customer, "The Walmart beauty boxes offer a lot of variety and the quality of the products are above average in my opinion. The focus seemed more on providing a range of choices in colors of each item contained in the beauty box."

You can completely customize your Walmart beauty box

To sign up, you'll answer a survey to help customize your box, so you're getting relevant products and not items you're not interested in or won't work for you (via Hip2Save). The website then asks you to choose a theme, such as trendy or classic. You'll also be asked for your ethnicity and any issues you may have with your skin. 

Next, your box will be customized based on hair type, including whether it's straight, curly, oily, or frizzy. Your hairstyle is another customization, asking if you color, curl, blow dry, or otherwise treat your locks. You'll be asked about your hair color, choosing from an assortment of natural hues or "other" to indicate a rainbow of fun colors. In an add-on, you'll be asked to choose some products you'd like to discover in categories like health and wellness, products for Mom, products for home, or snacks and treats.

The website asks all of these questions in a better effort to customize your box. Once you've filled everything out, all that's left to do is wait for your first shipment of fun, tailored-for-you products at a rock-bottom price.
