Boxy Charm June 2018

Hey everyone, this is one of my favorite topics to blog about and I hope you love reading my unboxings! If you are unfamiliar with Boxycharm, it is a subscription service that sends a box of goodies to your home every month. Items are always beauty related (hair, makeup, skincare) and they range in size/price but it is always $21 per month. This months Boxycharm is so insane! First off, I received 9 items- yes you read that correct, 9 items! Let’s jump right into this unboxing:

Sol de Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream 

Funny thing about this product- I recently bought a jar of this Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and it smells so freaking good that even my boyfriend was using it! He was using it so much that I bought another one before we ran out.. and then Boxycharm sends me another one! I will definitely be using this- it’s probably my favorite beauty product this summer- I am obsessed! If you’ve never used this I highly recommend trying it. It is pricey, but go grab a free sample at sephora or at least go smell how heavenly this stuff is!!!! The scent is pistachio caramel and its seriously so sweet and delicious that I bought the body mist fragrance too! I can’t get enough of this stuff. Besides the amazing smell, this stuff really does work! This is a fast absorbing tightening body cream. I swear it helps with cellulite on thighs and plumps the skin so beautifully. 

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick

I have actually never used a Ofra Liquid Lipstick before but I was happy to see this in my Boxycharm! The color is right up my alley, I love 90’s-esque shades of brown lip color. I haven’t worn this on my lips yet, but I did a quick swatch. 

This has a very sweet scent, reminds me of cake batter! If you dont like fragrance in cosmetics this might not be for you, but the scent doesn’t bother me at all. I am really loving this shade and curious to see how it lasts throughout the day. 

Alamar Cosmetics Reina del Caribe Volume 1

This packaging is too cute, I love the bright yellow tropical/summer themed package. My favorite detail is the small water and sun symbols next to each shade name- these represent if you should apply wet or dry- such a cute small detail! 

These swatched so beautifully, serious knocked my socks off with how smooth and creamy the metallics are. I use them for the first time today and oh my god!!! I love how flawlessly these blend and I cannot believe how pigmented these are! The mattes are BRIGHT and BOLD on the eyes! The metallics apply more on the sheer side if you use a dry brush; using a wet brush wet amps up the color and texture! I am dying to try more from this brand now, this palette is amazing!!! 

Jonteblu Cosmetics Eye Liner

This deep brown eyeliner is the perfect shade to accent the colors in the Alamar palette! I used this to line my water line and it really meshed all the colors together beautifully. This is a traditional wooden pencil liner that you would sharper, not a twist up. It applied creamy to the eye and the color was a perfect shade of brown! I really like this a lot especially because I have so many black liners but few brown ones!

Battington Lashes

This little box is adorable, I really like this packing! These lashes look really pretty and fluffy. They do look lightweight with a thin strip which is always nice for flexibility and application. I have not trie these out yet but I am curious because I am not familiar with this company. It is exciting to receive lashes in a subscription box though!

Luxie Brush Trio

I cannot believe this box came with 3 FULL SIZED Luxie Brushes!!! I absolutely love Luxie Beauty, I use their face and eyeshadow brushes pretty much everyday. I was sooooo excited to see this trio in my Boxycharm. I used them today and of course, as all Luxie brushes are, they were super soft and amazing! I love these and I am so happy they are full sized, not travel sized! This trio comes with a fountain brush, a powder brush and a tapered highlighting brush. 

Overall

This June 2018 Boxy Charm is bananas!!! I loooove this box sooo much, it might be my favorite Boxycharm yet! Every month I am so impressed with the amount of products I receive for only $21, so amazing!

Ipsy Unboxing: April 2018

I love subscription boxes soooooo incredibly much! This week my Ipsy Glam Bag came in and of course I ripped it open in a frenzy to see what this months bag contained! If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a subscription service that sends 4-5 items per month for $10. The items range is size and price. I feel Ipsy is kind of hit or miss. Some months are spectacular and some are a little lackluster. Lets jump right into the April glam bag!

Cosmetics Bag

Although this isn’t really my personal style, I do think this bag is really cute! The butterflies are perfect for spring and the rose gold accents make more this stylish/sophisticated.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

I own this already and I really love it! Any soft peachy nudes are typically my go to lip colors so this is a staple n my collection. I love the formula on this, it is creamy, smooth and super pigmented! Although it is a matte, its a soft matte meaning its more or a velvet finish which is not overly drying. This doesn’t emphasis texture of the he lips either so if your lips are chapped, this will still apply well. I am very happy to receive this in my glam bag!

The Vintage Cosmetics Tweezers

The packaging on this is so cute, I love the mix or floral and polka dots- the vintage patterns work perfectly for the brand name. These tweezers are a good shape and weight. I used them this morning and they grabbed and removed the brow hairs easy peasy! I hate when tweezers are too rounded and the hairs just slip around and wont pluck- thats not the case with these, they have a sharp angled edge that works really well!

The color of this is gorgeous too, I love rose gold and these look super cute on my vanity.

Lip Scrub

I love that there’s a lip scrub in this months glam bag. Its a great item to have in your makeup collection in general. I don’t know if I’m going to open this because I already have a ton of lip scrubs, but if I didn’t I would be excited to get this is a subscription box. Especially this time of year with the weather still cold (in my area at least), its great to receive skin care/dry skin products to refresh before the summer!

H2O+ Beauty Oasis Hydrating Treatment

The texture of this is very gel like, not creamy or lotion-y at all. This does spread pretty far so a small squeeze covered my face. It feels very soothing and slick when applying and does take a few minutes to dry down. I would say this has a slight tacky feeling on the skin, but it actually seemed to work pretty well as a primer for my makeup because of that slight stickyness. This has a strange smell that I just can’t place but it’s not terrible smell. Be mindful using this because I slapped it on all willy nilly and ended up getting it in my eye and it burned pretty awful! That was totally my fault and no fault of the product. I actually am really enjoying this, it’s very hydrating!

Paula Dorf Bronzer in Bora Bora

This is definitely a semi-shimmery bronzer. It isn’t super noticeable on the face but keep that in mind if you prefer a very matte bronzer/contour. This soft brown color works really well for my pale skin. Theres no orange haze or any weird color change on the skin. This blends out pretty easily too! I’ve never used this brand before but I am pleasantly surprised at how much I am loving this.

Overall

This months bag is pretty great! I am loving all of my items this month and and so happy to have successes with these brands I have never used before! What did you guys get in your glam bags this month? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks so much for reading!

Ipsy Unboxing: February 2018

My Ipsy Glam Bag was delivered the other day and of course I ripped it open to share with you guys! If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a subscription service that sends 4-5 beauty products to your door every month in a little cosmetics bag. The products range from samples to full sized, as well as drugstore to high end. The Ipsy subscription service is $10 per month and it typically a great value for the products you receive! Let’s jump into the February Ipsy Glam bag!

Cosmetic Bag

This months bag is actually really cute, which I didn’t except since the bags aren’t always my cup of tea. The soft blush pink bag looks really stunning up against the bold black lace- very valentine’s day chic which is great for February!

Luxie Brush #249

Luxie Brushes are fantastic, if you haven’t used these before- go check them out! This double sided #249 brush is my favorite item from this month’s glam bag! I have been using this to contour my nose and I love it!!! I’m not huge on contour, but I do like a subtle dark edge on my nose, jawline and cheek bones. The thinner/flat side of this brush is the perfect size to lay the contour powder down; and then the other side works so well to blend the contour out! I love this brush so much!! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this brush on my IG stories, I shared this as a sneak peak.

Eva Dry Shampoo

I have used this brand’s hair care before but not this particle product. I love me some dry shampoo so I will be using this eventually, however I am so stuck on the Dove Volumizing Dry Shampoo that I’l probably wait until I run out of that before testing this out. The packaging on this is adorable, love the sunset colors!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eyes Waterproof Concealer

I have used a variation of this in the past, the Bye Bye Under Eyes Illuminating Concealer, which I am a fan of, so when I saw this in my glam bag I was really excited. I love this formula, it covers dark circles so beautifully and really makes me look more awake! I have seen a lot of people saying they didn’t like how thick this product is, but if you apply it correctly, you will get crease free, full coverage under eye! I recommend dropping a tiny bit of this onto a small makeup brush and smoothing under the eye. Once the product is where you want it, blend out with a damp beauty sponge and then immediately set with powder. This might take a little extra time to apply, but it’s definitely worth it if you have heavy dark circles under the eyes.

Pacifica Min Beach Crystal Natural Mineral Eyeshadow Palette

These colors are really beautiful and paired well with each other so you can create quite a few looks out of these 5 shades! I love the packaging on this, super cute with the holo lettering and geometric designs. I have not used or swatched this since it is part of my March Giveaway on Instagram. If you are into this product, check out my IG to enter the giveaway!

Luna by Luna Highlight

This is a good sized highlight, the pan is small in diameter but it is really piled high in a dome shape. I’ve never used Luna by Luna before so I am interested on the wear time for this product, however I just have sooooo many highlights that I love so I’m not totally sure if I’ll be opening this or adding it to to giveaway pile.. I will keep you posted if I do test this out.

Overall

I really loves this months bag! The Luxie Brush and It Cosmetics Concealer are my stand out items this month- I’ve been using them every day since I received this bag! I am curious about the dry shampoo and highlighter too, so I’ll have to get back to you guys on those. Let me know if the comments what product you received this month. I love doing unboxing for you guys so please let me know if you love reading about them as much as I love posting about them!

Boxy Charm January 2018

It’s that time again- Boxy Charm Unboxing!!!! I have been loving this subscription service so much. This is $21 a month for 4-5 full sized beauty products. Typically, boxes are valued over $100- which makes this a great service for beauty lovers who want to build their collections.

This month I received 5 products:

Let’s dive into each product:

Pur Cosmetics Bronze & Brighten Palette

This is beautiful!!!! I am a huge fan of Pur Cosmetics palettes, I have been raving about the Elevation Highlight Palette for years now. This palette has white plastic packaging with 3 gorgeous shades. The pans are very generously sized- one for blush, one highlight and one bronzer. These are all very shimmery shades, with an almost pearl like finish. I love how these are pressed into the pans, its almost too pretty to use.

Dr Brandt’s Pores No More Illuminating Primer

I haven’t used this product yet, or even the brand, but I was very happy to see this in my box! Dr. Brandt is a well know line that seems to be skin care heavy makeup (so a lot of primers, pore fillers, etc). I cannot wait to give this a go! I have been into more glowy skin lately and I use a seperate pore filler besides my primer, so maybe this can do both!

It Cosmetics Brow Powder

The packaging on this product is cute. One end has a spoolie which is incredibly soft. The other end is the actual Brow product, which I’m still on the fence about. I have used this for the past few days and I am really into how my brows look- but the application is tough. If you aren’t familiar with Brow pencils, this could be tricky to use. The amount of pressure you use will make the color lighter or darker- so push harder for darker brows. This is a universal shade, meaning everyone uses the same color which is weird but cool. I’ve been getting more and more comfortable the more I use this, practice makes perfect.

Crown Glam Metals Palette

Anytime a subscription service gives you a full sized palette, you get excited! I do like the colors and finishes of these shadows, but I decided to add this to a future giveaway instead of swatching it for you guys. I have so many palettes and this one is so beautiful I want to give it to someone who will really use it! (****This will be in the March or April giveaway on IG, so stay tuned there****)

Girlacktik Matte Lip Paint in Posh

This color is lovely, but it a similar story to the palette. I have too many liquid lipsticks in this shade range so I added this to a giveaway as well. I do think this packaging looks really nice and I would be interested in looking into this line now since I’m not familiar. (**** This is in my current February giveaway on my IG- please enter if you haven’t already!)

Overall

I really love this box! As mentioned, I haven’t tried all of the products yet, but they are all items that seem practical and useful! I love the variety that Boxy Charm uses- for example there’s a skin product, eye product, lip product, brow product and cheek product- they aren’t duplicating or cutting corners. This subscription box is definitely my favorite! If you arent subscribed, I’d recommend checking it out. This is a healthy serving of makeup for only $21! If you are subscribed, let me know in the comments what items you received– or what boxes you are subscribed to!

First Impressions: Glam Glow Blue Sonic Mask

Once again, my curiosity has been peeked after seeing the same product all over Instagram. It seems every beauty gurus out there uses or promotes the Glam Glow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment, which is a shiny blue peel of mask. Glam Glow is known for their high end masks, which will cost you a pretty penny.

This is the .5 oz unit which retails at $22. The larger unit is $69 for 1.7 oz. I purchased my mask through Sephora, also for sale on the Glam Glow website. Like always, let’s break this down and find out if it really is worth the hype!

Packaging

Obviously this is a special product because of the packaging, being that it’s a collectors edition. I got the Tails container; there was also a Sonic one and a Knuckles one.

Smell & Texture

I don’t like the smell of this AT ALL, however I think I may be alone on that opinion. This has a very tropical scent, to me I smell coconut alcohol  and sun screen. I know, most people love that scent but I personally do not and I didn’t expect it at all.


The texture is thick and gel like at first. It spreads pretty far on the face as you rub it in, so I suggest going in with a little and add from there.

Application

The package does say to avoid the eyebrows and hairline, so be mindful when using this, don’t rip your hair out!

This dried pretty quickly. Because it said to leave on for 30 minutes, I thought this would stay wet for a while, or at least be tacky. However, within about 5 minutes this was dry to the touch. Running my fingers over this was interesting. The mask did not budge, slide, or even come off onto my fingers. It was completely locked in place on my skin. The mask was very smooth all over except for my forehead, which felt rough to the touch. I wonder if this is because my forehead is my oily area?


This is a firming mask, so expect a tightening feeling when wearing this!

Removing the Mask

This peels off very easily. I used the pad of my finger to roll the edge of this until I was able to get a good piece lifted off of my chin. From there I slowly pulled the mask away from my skin and it very gently peeled off. I was a little nervous to remove this, but it wasn’t painful or difficult, much to my surprise! When I pulled this off of my face, you could literally see indentations from my pores on the strips of mask. That shows you how this really penetrates pores to remove dirt and oil.


My skin felt very tight and smooth when I took this off. I rinsed with warm water, dried my skin and then followed with a moisturizer.

Results

Being that this is a first impression, I’ve only used this product once. Most of the time, with skin care, you need to try the product out for a few solid weeks to see any results. From my first use of this product I can tell you my skin already looks improved! My pores look smaller and clean. My skin looks refreshed and less dull. And the weirdest thing, my skin still feels tight like when the mask was on. It’s been about 20 minutes and my face feels tight and plump!

Worth the Hype?


I am truly impressed with this mask! I don’t think I’ve ever experienced immediate results with a skin care product, at least not the this level. I would 100% recommend this product, this may even become my new skin care holy grail! I cannot wait to do this again next week and see how my skin improved over time. Now I understand the hype on Instagram, this product works; totally worth the hype!

Ipsy vs. Sephora Play: July 2017

One of my favorite posts to share with you guys and gals are the monthly Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxing! If you are unfamiliar with these, they are a month subscription service that mails 4-5 products to your doorstep! The products range in size from sample, deluxe sample and full sized. In Ipsy, there is a mixture of high end and drugstore brands; Sephora Play is high end only, found in Sephora stores.

The items pictured are sample sized, unless otherwise stated. The prices listed along side the products are for FULL SIZED versions. The retailers vary, as I look up where to find these the cheapest, incase you do not have an Ipsy subscription. If you are in Ipsy subscriber, make sure to check their website as they do offer sales and coupon codes.

Let’s jump right in! These are the bags that I received this month:

Cosmetics Bags


These are both cute bags.. nothing I’m jumping for joy over, but they are cute nonetheless. The zippered bag, with the cartoon egg thing was from Ipsy.  The pink plaid Glamp Out bag is from Sephora. Now for the important stuff.. what’s inside?!

Sephora

  • Ren Clear Skin Care Ever Calm Global Protection Day Cream
  • Clinique Chubby Stick in
  • Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque
  • It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara

Ipsy

  • Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer
  • Windy Lux Double Matte Whip
  • Ciate Wonderland Eyeliner
  • TonyMoly Im Real Sheet Masks in Green Tea and Lotus
  • M Princess Pressed Eyeshadow

 

Individual Item Breakdown

Sephora Play Items:

Ren Clear Skin Care Ever Calm Global Protection Day Cream


This moisturizer is suppose to help the skin purify from environmental issues like smoke, pollution and weather. I have used a variety of moisturizers, but none that have made this claim. I am interested in how this would work but I feel like these are the type of products you need to use daily for a while to see it is really pays off.  ($22.97, walmart.com)

Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin’ Watermelon

I have used a few of these before, in different shades and I do like the feel of them on the lips. These have very little color pay off  in these lighter shades like this. Since I already have a few of these in similar shades, I will be including this in an upcoming giveaway. ($17, sephora.com)

Madam C J Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque

I’ve been more into hair care lately, so I will be trying this out for sure. My hair is chemically treated (bleach, color removers, and a ton of color deposits) so I could definitely use a refresher! I don’t typically use hair masques but that’s what these subscription boxes are all about- trying new things! ($32, sephora.com, currently out of stock)

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara

I have gotten this before in a subscription box and used it in the past. This isn’t my favorite mascara in the world, but I dont hate it. This does add a bit of length and volume, but nothing too dramatic. I do like that the formula being that isn’t too drying and it doesn’t flake. ($24, itcosmetics.com)

Ipsy Items:

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer

I have heard a lot about this bronzer, it seems to be pretty hyped up on Instagram, soI was very excited to see this! I am not huge on bronzers, being that I have pale skin, but this gives such a nice glow-y feel that is perfect for the summer. I apply this with a large angled fluffy brush to my temples, cheekbones, and down the side of my neck. I love how this wears on the skin! The packaging on this is really cute too, with a faux crocodile skin on the compact. The pan size is good sized and I see this lasting my quiet a while! ($30, tartecosmetics.com)

Windy Lux Double Matte Whip in Angel Food 

This product is a rose pink matte liquid lipstick. The packing and name is super cute, although it doesn’t seem like a very big sample compared to the same of most liquid lipsticks. The full sized in so adorable, it has little ice-cream cones on it , so cute! I did swatch this on my hand and it was tacky at first and then dried down completely matte. This is so long lasting, the swatch stayed on my hand the entire day until I removed it with soapy water! I am impressed with the staying power of these and would like to try other colors! ($13, winkylux.com)

Ciate Wonderland Gel Kohl Eyeliner Pencil

This is a cool concept, one side is eyeliner and the other side is an angled brush. The brush is insanely soft and flexible. I definitely thought it would be stiff and was really surprised at how well it blended the liner out with the bendable bristles. I haven’t tried this on my eye yet, so I dont know how well it would hold up in the water liner, but I will give it a whirl soon. I swatched this on my hand and the liner is a bit rough, not super creamy, but it does have good color pay off. The pigment is definitely bold and blends down softly, so I like that you could do a different looks with this product! ($18, sephora.com)

TonyMoly Im Real Sheet Masks in Green Tea and Lotus

I love receiving sheet masks in my subscription boxes because I always find new brands or mask types that I’m unfamiliar with. I am excited to try these out, I saw this brand listed on a makeup website recently and I was intrigued! These are really inexpensive for sheet masks, so if they work out for me, I will definitely be repurchasing. Who doesn’t want affordable skin care?! ($3 each, macys.com)

M Princess Pressed Eyeshadow in Biscuit

I am just not a fan of single eyeshadows. I typically throw them in a random drawer and forget about them. I am a palette queen all the way. I know, I know, just get a Z palette to hold all of my singles, I keep telling myself but haven’t actually done it. This color on this looks nice, but upwards of $15 seem like a lot of money for a single shadow. I did not open this or swatch it because it will be in an comping giveaway (possibly this week so keep you eyes peeled!) ($15.45, http://www.emmprincess.com.au)

Overall

The winner this month is clearly IPSY! I was really excited with the variety of products this month. It was 6 products total, since it came with two different sheet masks!  For $10 I am really ecstatic to receive a lipstick, eyeshadow, two face masks, bronzer and an  eyeliner!!!

Sephora Play on the other hand was a little underwhelming. I will likely use some of these, but I just wasn’t super excited the way I was when I opened my Ipsy bag. As you may have noticed, there are only 4 items listed for my Sephora Box this month, because I did not receive one of the items listed on my information pamphlet, so I know I was suppose to receive it… Also, the fragrance sample I received leaked…. so not great showing this month for the Sephora Box.

Walmart Beauty Box: Summer 2017

If you are unfamiliar with the Walmart Beauty Box, it is a quarterly subscription box showcasing items sold at Walmart stores. Walmart charges $5 per box, so all together it’s $20 a year to receive these beauty boxes. The items range from sample, deluxe sample and sometimes full sized products. Everything is pretty budget friendly, being that it’s from a company sold at Walmart stores.

Again, this is not a monthly subscription, this comes out every 4 weeks and is themed per season. This season was the Summer Box, lets dive in!

Packaging

The packaging on this box is super cute. The paper inside has adorable little fireworks. I really like that Walmart does this top of box, where the lid comes completely off. I must say I prefer boxes over cosmetics bags, like you would receive in Ipsy. I reuse the boxes to store things in my house, to wrap gifts, to ship giveaways etc. The cosmetics bags I receive from other subscription boxes usually dont get much use from me, but I digress. I love the colors scheme so much on this box, it just so happens to match my hair!

Simple Cleansing Wipes

If you are familiar with my blog, you know I am OBSESSED with Simple wipes. I use these every morning before I do my makeup to remove any excess oil and dirt. I also use these every night to take my makeup off. I just love the formula of this product; the wipes are soft and gentle but effective at removing stubborn makeup. Such a great product to receive in this box!!

Impress Press on Manicure One Step Gel

This is such a cute item and I love the idea of it but my natural nails are longer than the press ons. I will hold on to these because I would love to try them out and see how they work when my nails are shorter. I am very curious about the adhesive on the back of these nails.. would it actually hold up compared to nail glue? The color/design is gorgeous, the package I received has white nails, along with 3 different accent nails: one is solid glittery gold, one is a diamond shaped pattern of glittery gold and one says “love” is glittery gold. I do like these a lot and this is the first time I’ve receive a full sized product in one of these boxes! I looked up the price, and this sells for $7.99!!!!

Pantene Pro-V Dream Care Shampoo & Conditioner

I don’t use Pantene products so I wont personally be using this, but my boyfriend travels for work, so this is perfect to throw in his travel bag. I did pop them open and they smell good, so thats a plus! Just because I wont be using these doesn’t mean I think its a bad product. These are travel sizes that you would buy for like $1-2 each anyway so I think its a good product for a $5 subscription box.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

SOOOO this product is totally haunting me. I obviously got this in this season’s box, hence why were discussing it, but I also receive TWO of these in my winter box… AND I already have a full bottle in my bathroom that I never use. I’m just not a fan of this product. I use to live by Aveeno as a kid/teen because I had a lot of skin issues. The older I go the more oily my skin got and I stopping using Aveeno because I just didn’t need it anymore. If you suffer from any kind of skin irritation, this product would probably work really well for you, I’m just not a fan for my skin.

Eco Tools Mask Remover Sponges

This just seems like the most genius invention ever! I hate taking off mud masks because they are so thick and just seem to cling to my skin ruthlessly. I haven’t used these sponges yet, nor have I ever used a product like this. I typically remove mud masks with a warm face cloth and it works, but I like gimmicky so I’ll totally be testing these out. The package says you can ring these out after you use them and dry them, which means they are reusable! It also states these are a gentle exfoliating sponge which you can use with you regular face wash. There is nothing I love more that a multi-purpose beauty product. I have a feeling I will love these! I did check the price because I was curious if this was a full sized product and the sponges are the actual size you would receive in a full sized package, but the full sized does come with 3 sponges for $3.97 at Walmart.

Wally’s Natural Organic Body Oil

This sample comes in a tube very similar to perfume testers. It looks like a tiny amount of product but being that oil goes a pretty long way, maybe it will stretch. It does say is reduces the appliance of scars, stretch marks and dry skin, I happen to have all 3, so I will give this a try. I do get nervous about oils, being that I already have oily skin but I am going to use this as a spot treatment on my scars and see if the discoloration goes away.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Glued Spiking Glue

This is one of those, no thank you products…. I don’t use spiking glue in my hair so this isn’t the type of product I would get excited about. This is also not something my boyfriend or brother or anyone I know could use so maybe I’ll save it for a giveaway. I will say, it smells good! Quick side story, when I was 14 I had beautiful natural chocolate brown hair down to my waist and I chopped it all off so that my bangs came down to my chin, and the rest of my hair was short spikes. Back then, a product like this would have been so perfect for that grudge-y/punk look I was trying so hard to achieve. I wish I had a picture of my 14 year old rock and roll self to share with you guys, talk about a glow-up.

Overall

That is everything I received for the Summer Walmart Beauty Box, I have to say, this box is fan-freaking-tanstic!!! Seriously, this has to be the best Walmart Beauty Box I’ve ever received. Last seasons box was kind of womp-womp, so I am pleasantly surprised with the goodies I got this month! I am really impressed that there were so many products (and such a high value) for a box that is only $5! If you are on the fence of subscribing to a month beauty box like Ipsy or Sephora, this could be a great place for you to start!

Do any of your guys and gals receive these Walmart boxes? Let me know in the comments what products you received this season! I am curious about the Target subscription box too, but they sell out so quickly, and you cannot enroll for a subscription to have it automatically sent to you.
