Walmart Fall 2016 Beauty Box – Trendsetter v Classic

Clean & Clear Deep Action 60 Second Shower Mask – Clean & Clear Deep Action 60 Second Shower Mask is an in-shower mask that works with the stream of your shower to deeply, but gently exfoliate away traces of dirt, oil and dead skin that can clog pores. You’ll be able to feel the deep clean as the tingling sensation builds, and in just 60 seconds, your skin will look and feel refreshed. This is the type of product I loved when my skin was oilier but it no longer works for my dryer skin. My son, who is 15, says it is good and he enjoys using it. It is a good sized sample.

Village Naturals Therapy Aches+Pains Muscle Relief Foaming Bath Soak with Epsom Salt – Revitalize + restore while soaking in our powerful blend of essential oils including Eucalyptus, Spearmint and cooling Menthol. The combination of Sea Salt and Epsom Salt help to draw out impurities and ease tired muscles.  This sounds nice but I am a shower person and cannot even say the last time I soaked in the tub.

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips – Let’s face it. Excess oil can clog pores and lead to blackheads. Gross! Luckily, Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips, infused with natural charcoal, trap and draw out deep-down impurities and excess oil. Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips work like a magnet, instantly locking onto and drawing out deep-down dirt and oil that can cause blackheads. Infused with natural charcoal, these innovative pore strips draw out excess oil for the deepest clean. In just 10 minutes, you’ll remove weeks’ worth of buildup and see 3x less oil. I haven’t decided if I am going to try this or pass it to my son. There is only 1 strip and I may use it myself. The pores on my nose are pretty big so this might help.

Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin & Nails Dietary Supplement Strawberry Flavored Gummies – With Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies, looking good and feeling healthy has never been so delicious. This supplement contains just the right balance of nutrients to support lustrous hair, healthy nails and vibrant skin, all with a tasty strawberry flavor. It provides you with exactly what your body needs to support your natural beauty without any of the stuff it doesn’t need. These strawberry-flavored dietary supplement biotin gummies are packed with antioxidant vitamins E and C. Vitamin E contributes to skin health, while vitamin C is involved in collagen production and formation, which forms the basis for vibrant skin. Biotin helps maintain healthy hair and nails. I’m not a big vitamin or supplement user so this is not something I am interested in.

Batiste Clean & Classic Original Dry Shampoo – Make everyday your runway with Batiste Clean & Classic Original Dry Shampoo. This multi-award winning hair hero is the perfect quick fix for great looking hair, even between washes. A few quick bursts instantly transform your look. Hair looks clean and fresh with added body and texture. No water required! It’s the perfect way to extend your blow dry, free up time in the morning or to give your hair a new lease on life whenever, wherever it needs it. I am a big fan of this dry shampoo although I prefer the Floral and Flirty fragrance.This is the best sample in this box. These are very handy sizes for travel, your gym bag, etc.

Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Wash, Sweet Cream & Peony – Dove Sweet Cream with Peony body wash creates a cloud of creamy lather. The comforting scent fills your shower, leaving you with the feeling of complete indulgence. Whether it’s a half-hour alone with a cup of tea and a good book or a restorative yoga class, taking time for ourselves is one of life’s simplest pleasures. But even when resting on the sofa isn’t an option, the shower is a great place to take a few quiet minutes every day. And the right body wash – one that leaves you with soft skin and has a fragrance you love – can help you to do that in the shower every single day. So why not pamper yourself with Dove Purely Pampering Sweet Cream with Peony Body Wash? This Dove body wash gives you a rich lather and warm sweet cream with peony fragrance to delight your senses. Meanwhile, the mild cleansers help your skin to maintain its natural moisture, and NutriumMoisture technology helps to replenish your skin’s nutrients, giving you softer, smoother skin after just one shower. I like Dove and peonies are my favorite flowers so this is a great sample. I can always use shower gel.

Cetaphil For Dry, Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream – Cetaphil for Dry, Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream banishes rough and dry skin in just one application. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream features a non-greasy formula that smoothes rough areas like the elbows, knees and feet. Designed for sensitive skin, this moisturizing cream for dry skin is fragrance-free to help avoid any irritations. As part of the #1 dermatologist and pediatrician-recommended brand of moisturizers, Cetaphil for Dry, Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream can temporarily relieve eczema and psoriasis. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is also safe to use on your face, as it gives you fresher, softer skin. This sounds great for winter skin. The problem is how small the tube is. It is only 1/2 an ounce and that won’t last long for a body lotion.

EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths – EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths instantly wash away surface makeup, oil and impurities from your brushes to improve their performance for a smoother makeup application. Good for you, good for your brushes. These dermatologist-tested, non-irritating cloths are made with plant-based ingredients like cucumber and aloe. Each cruelty free cloth is made with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified material and free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and petroleum-based ingredients. These cloths will not deposit any oily residue, leaving your brushes clean, soft and healthy. I am pretty excited to try this. Cleaning brushes is never fun and anything that makes that easier is great. A 25 pack is only $6.98 so I will buy it if it works well.

Hello Naturally Friendly Pure Mint Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste – Say hello to Hello Naturally Friendly Pure Mint Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste. It whitens teeth with no peroxide. With no dyes, artificial sweeteners or preservatives, it’s a no brainer! Hello has thoughtfully formulated the toothpaste with high-quality ingredients like xylitol, stevia and a silica and calcium carbonate blend that gently whitens teeth, prevents cavities, strengthens enamel and freshens breath. Plus, it is vegan and never tested on animals. I like to save this and use them when I travel. They take up so much less space than a full-sized tube.

So, that is the Trendsetter box. It did have quite a few items in it but I wasn’t overly excited for any of them except the dry shampoo. Now let’s see what the Classic box had in the fall box.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils – Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils is formulated with a unique blend of natural moisturizers, including Coconut and Argan Oils. These natural oils combined help keep skin soft, clean, and beautifully nourished. Antioxidant rich ingredients, this facial cleanser gently removes dirt and make-up without leaving an oily residue. It is dermatologist-tested and clinically shown to cleanse and soften skin, naturally. It is 100% natural with no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS. I got a sample of this last winter and I really liked it. It got my face totally clean and did not leave an oily residue at all. This would probably be too heavy for me in the summer but I like using it in the winter. The packet looks like it is enough for 2-4 uses.

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher Cream – Why is L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher Cream right for me? To achieve virtually flawlessly smooth skin, it starts with the pores. Scientifically developed for all skin tones, L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher helps to improve overall skin quality instantly and over time. L’Oreal Expertise: L’Oreal Laboratories have created a new generation of skincare that effectively works on multiple dimensions of pores. Surface of the Pore: Airlite powders instantly give skin a soft-focus finish. Around the Pore: Targeted LHA micro-exfoliates to smooth skin’s surface. Innovative Perlite absorbs excess oil for eight shine-free hours. Within the Pore: L’Oreal Paris’s highest concentration of Perline-P strengthens and tightens to shrink the appearance of pore size over time. Reveal your most ideal skin now. Virtually Poreless Smooth Results: Instantly, pores appear virtually vanished. Excess oil is absorbed for an all-day, shine-free finish.  This is supposed to be used twice a day as the last step in your skincare regimen. I will use it as a primer and see what I think.

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion – When you have very dry, rough, irritated skin you need something that will moisturize to help it heal fast. In our Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented lotion, we’ve combined healing micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly and our highest levels of moisturizing glycerin. The result is a rich yet quick absorbing lotion that gives you intense moisturization. This lotion deeply moisturizes to heal very dry skin in only 5 days. It provides prescription strength moisturization without the prescription to restore soft, healthy looking skin. It’s also been awarded the U.S. National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance. With its seal of approval from the NEA, Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion is suitable to use as a daily moisturizer for people with eczema or sensitive skin. Apply Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion to your skin daily to heal dry skin. I like this brand and have used many products in this line. I am always glad to get lotion.

Aussie Mega Hairspray – Aussie Mega Hairspray gives a flexible hold all day long. Your locks will stay touchable, smooth and free to move. This mega hairspray holds your style without holding you back. It’s the winner of numerous beauty awards including Seventeen Magazine’s “Best Hairspray” Besties Award in 2013.  I don’t use hairspray.

Eucerin Eczema Relief Body Creme – Eucerin eczema relief body creme. Fragrance, dye and steroid free. Protects and helps prevent the very dry, irritated skin associated with eczema. Contains oatmeal, licochalcone and ceramides. I don’t have eczema and this tube is so small.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream – the only difference I can see in this and the tube that came in the Trendsetter box is that it said for body and this does not specify. Anyway, I can always use Cetaphil products.

Dove Advanced Care Cool Essentials Antiperspirant Deodorant – Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant Deodorant Cool Essentials combines the reassurance of up to 48 hours of antiperspirant protection with the refreshing scent of cucumber and green tea. In addition to keeping underarm wetness at bay for up to 48 hours, the no alcohol (ethanol) formula helps delicate underarm skin to recover from the irritation that regular shaving can cause. The formula also includes Dove NutriumMoisture and unique 1/4 moisturizers, for smooth underarms that look and feel softer with regular use. If you’ve been wondering how to get soft armpits, choose Dove Cool Essentials for touchably soft, smooth underarm skin and a scent to awaken your senses in the morning. To use, apply this antiperspirant deodorant to dry skin after showering or bathing and enjoy fresh and comfortably dry skin all day long. For best results, make sure your underarm skin is cool and completely dry before applying, and give each underarm a few swipes for even coverage. Dove is my go-to deodorant in the winter. Even my underarms get dry and itchy and Dove deodorant prevents that and keeps them soft and smooth. It also works well to keep me dry and fresh smelling.

I think that the Trendsetter box edges out the Classic box for fall. I will get more use out of it because I will use the dry shampoo and won’t use the hairspray. I am not totally thrilled about either but they are worth $5 each. I hope the winter boxes are better

Do you get the Walmart Beauty Box? Do you get the Trendsetter or the Classic?
