Walmart Beauty Box? Sweet!

Recommended Posts

@@puzzlepopples I do not understand the lack of tracking emails, but do you think the boxes are shipped in waves and for whatever reason, some people are just in the last batch?


 


My first two boxes were Classic Beauty/Trendsetter 2s and then the 3rd one came a little later and this last one is clearly the 4th variation.

I really don't understand their logic. I do think they ship in waves but I don't know how they determine which waves go out first and which have to wait forever. I think they ran out of samples (the reason for box 4 being drastically different) and had to wait on more to arrive which caused a delay this time. 

As much as I hated waiting, I will actually get more use out of this box than I would have the original Trendsetter box. 

 

Edited to add: I also don't understand the lack of tracking. It was like lets ship all these early and send track but the late ones can just wait and see no tracking for them. Makes no sense.

The "young" box arriving on Monday is WMTrendsetrBeautyWinter#1

 

Does anyone know which box this is?

 

Still hoping I get the BB wipes :)

 

@@JolieFleurs, which Trendsetter box did you receive? #1 or #2?

I personally wouldn't care how long I had to wait as long as they had the decency/professionalism to let you know; how hard can it be to do tracking? Especially when they were able to provide it for some of them. (I get that first time subscribers weren't getting any, they said that upfront)

 

 

I got 5 boxes ( so far, lord); only two had tracking. And those were the two original ones, which I had to resign up with, so h*ll, I don't even know if they got tracking because they somehow were in the system all along or if they got tracking because they were the newest accts.

 

Geez.

 

I am not cancelling anything now, because I wanna see how it plays out! It's our own little beauty box soap opera.

Oh, and also, I never got tracking or anything. Seems like a lot of us with this variation (the Maple Kiss box) didn't!

I also got this same box and no tracking. I'm actually really pleased with this box, I think it's my favorite of the ones I've seen.

This is the box I got. It's not bad, but I do wish the lipstick was in a different color - Maple Kiss is what I got, and brown doesn't tend to look good with my pink tones. Sigh. But pretty happy about the shampoo and conditioner!

I got this box too.

 

I'd completely forgotten about this sub, so I was pretty surprised when I received it.

I got excited when I saw the lippie, but that excitement dissipated immediately when I saw the color. However it found a home as a stocking stuffer for my mom. The color is right up her alley.

 

The only item I can see me using is the Olay wipes. I don't need any more shampoo or conditioner samples. My bathroom is overflowing with hair products. I'm not sure about the Jergens. Mine says bb body perfecting cream, not tanning lotion. In any case it has a nice smell, so I'll probs use it.

 

Wasn't the premise of the Walmart box that we would receive $20 worth of product for free and just pay $5 shipping. I havent figured the exact worth of theses samples but they hardly add up to that.

 

I hope the spring box is better curated. I understand not everyone wears makeup, but I'd like other cosmetics, not just lip products. A pretty pink or coral blush or a small shadow quad from one the drugstore brands would be nice.

Oh and what a missed opportunity for nail polish. A nice winter shade would have been awesome. Like a red or burgundy. Even a neutral color would have been an agreeable choice.

@  The first Trendsetter I got was 2. ( Colorlicious Juicy Fruit gloss, Aveeno lotion, maybe some wipes? Dove Dove and some Dove)

 

This last one didn't have any tracking, and there's nothing on the box or label to indicate which it is, I"m so sorry!

I'm not a polish person by any means, but it would be nicer than more shampoo and makes a nice little giftee, especially since it's so popular now. 

 

 

Also, great point about the value. I am satisfied so far,  but had forgotten about the value promised.

 I got both my boxes today, very disappointed. The only thing that made me happy is the Maybelline lipstick in "Maple". I'm hoping that I can use the face wipes, but I'll test them on my leg first in case I have a reaction.I'm also keeping the Aveeno purse size, and the Pond's Rejuveness.

 

  The Jergen's BB body broke me out when I got a sample in the past, and the small tube of a Pond's product has too much fragrance. I don't want any of the massive quantities of hair products. So, I have a tidy pile of things to add to my growing CS stash.

 

  Hoping that Spring will have makeup and nail polish.

Well, still no box for me, and no tracking. I am going to call on Monday. I paid over 2 weeks ago on the 5th! This is getting ridiculous.

I really hope I get the Maple Kiss lipstick! I have one other from the same line, Truffle Tease, and I love brownish lips.

I received my "elderly" box today (charged on the 5th and received tracking notice on the 16th):

 

Pond's anti-wrinkle cream (1.75 ounces)

Ponds towelettes (5)

Aveeno lotion (1 oz)

Nivea foil and coupon

Olay tone perfecting cream (0.24 oz)

John Frieda volume shampoo and conditioner foils

L'Oreal Age Perfect day cream and serum foils

L'Oreal color vibrancy nourishing shampoo, conditioner, and treatment foils

 

While I would have loved a lip and/or nail product and the Jergens BB body cream (I use it all the time - love!), I don't think this was too bad for $5. 

 

I'll try everything and give the Aveeno lotion and Ponds wipes to my daughter (she already uses these products).

 

As other posters have mentioned, I received the same shampoo and conditioner foils in one of my recent Ulta GWPs.

 

I haven't heard or seen anything on my daughter's box yet, so I'll be really curious to see what she gets and also when it will arrive.

Thanks for the info :)

 

I got my box early:

 

Shampoo/conditioner (yay it's sulfate free! )

 

Lipstick (too dark but it's a good shade for my best friend)

 

Powder sample, BB cream, and Nivea foil (my other friend is getting these)

 

Wipes (always useful)

My three daughters' boxes all came today. Two of them opened theirs and they both got the Maple Kiss box. I'm assuming that my third daughter's box is the same. They seem pleased with what they received.

Both came today. I had tracking for 1 not the other. I am ok with these for 5 each. Could be better, could be worse. The older box needed a makeup it though. The size of the ponds is great though.

I got my box today!!  Paid on the 5th and never received tracking (but I didn't get tracking for the Fall box, either) and I got the Maple Kiss box!  This is like the first time in all the boxes I've subscribed to (Birchbox for a year and a half, Ipsy for about six months, and these Walmart ones) that I have EVER gotten the box variation that I wanted most.  I was giddy about the lipstick.  Not sure how it'll look on me but the pics online look like it might work.  I'm kind of excited for a brownish lipstick.  I didn't wear lipstick in the late 90s/early 2000s so I missed out on that trend :)

Got my box yesterday.  

 

I'm actually pretty happy. I'm glad the shampoo/conditioner is sulfate-free, so I'll actually try it.  I can always use wipes like that, and the lipstick reminds me of the shade I used to wear all the time in high school, lol.

I need to stop looking at this thread - I keep getting more and more annoyed that I wound up with the all foils old lady box. It seems kind of ridiculous that they would send out a whole bunch of boxes with one clearly having a much lower value than all the rest, and even more importantly, a lower usefulness. I know it's only 5 dollars but I keep getting PO'd seeing boxes with things I genuinely wanted to try in them, like the Oleo therapy hair stuff, or that would've been a fun surprise to try out, like the lip stuff. Has anyone who got the left over old lady box (snicker) contacted them to complain, or is that just a waste of time do you think?

 

Also: I'm 40! How the hell does that qualify me as an old lady anyway?

What a surprise, my box showed up today! After I cancelled, LOL!

 

And actually, I like the box. Olay makeup wipes, full size maybelline lipstick, jergens tanning lotion, loreal oil infused shampoo and conditioner and some foils.

 

I have to recheck my banking, but I'm 99% sure I was never charged. And never got tracking info.

My box came friday, no shipping, and I got the exact same as this one! MIGHT use the lipstick. Yes to the BB and face wipes, not sure about the shampoo and conditioner, and I am pale as a ghost so, definitely not to the makeup. Which i would've tried if it were in my shade :/

Talk about adding insult to injury -- the John Frieda coupon attached to the samples expires on 12/31/14.

 

AND it's only good on a styling product.  The samples were just sham/cond.  Grumble.

 

The geezer box just keeps getting worse.

@@TreatChoself  I called and I feel like it's useless to complain; the lady herself even said she wasn't sure anything could be done.

 

If I were you, I'd try and change your age on your ccount, or else cancel and resign up with a younger age. (Maybe even a new email, just to be safe)

 

But I have to say, I got what I considered to be a geezer box on an account that has my age as 20 (I'm 51), so even changing your age is no guarantee!

I canceled today.  I was thinking it wasn't bad for $5 but then I started thinking about how the $5 Target box was so much better and how I'm already overflowing with shampoo and conditioner foils.  I mean, I know the $5 is just supposed to cover shipping, but in other circumstances, I wouldn't pay $5 for shipping a bunch of foils.

 

Also, I really don't like how the boxes seem to have vastly different values.  If one person gets deluxe shampoo samples and a lipstick, and someone else gets stuff worth a lot less, it's kind of not cool.  I'd rather have them limit the boxes to one per household so everyone gets something good, than to try to accommodate everyone who ordered by throwing some leftovers in a box.

My box was okay but I do think I'll cancel. I don't think it's bad for $5. It's just not stuff I need and let's be real, Walmart is pretty much the only store in my town and I hate shopping there as it is, I don't really need help discovering more Walmart things, lol.
