Unboxing....Walmart Spring 2017 "Classic" Beauty Box #walmartbeautybox #wearwalmart

The Spring Beauty Box is the latest subscription box from Walmart:

My box came with 5 sample-sized products plus 4 "filler" samples. I'm disappointed because I had seen spoilers of the contents of this box prior to the boxes being shipped & this box should have come with samples of Ban roll-on deodorant, Soapbox body wash & Pure ICED nail polish. I'm assuming that the 4 smaller samples that I received were to make up for these products no longer being available. These tiny samples in no way made up for the larger sample sizes that I was expecting.

Sample-sized products:
SOO AE Nature Pure Brightening Collagen Essence Mask 
Jergen's Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer in Fair to Medium
Colgate Optic White Radiant Toothpaste 
Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Repair Shampoo
Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Repair Conditioner

"Filler" samples:
Aveeno Positively Radiant 60-Second In-Shower Facial & Overnight Hydrating Facial
Burt's Bees Skin Nourishment Night Cream with Royal Jelly
Palmer's Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
Palmer's Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer

There are 2 versions of these boxes: Classic or Trendsetter. The box that you receive is determined by your age when you sign up & fill out your information. This is the Classic box for those of us who are 35+. These boxes ship once every quarter for just the cost of shipping & handling which is $5. If you would like to subscribe, go here to enter your information. Your box will ship 5 - 10 days after you receive a confirmation email. This subscription ships once each quarter. The Spring box is shipping now & the Summer box will start shipping in June.

Unboxing....PINCHme Box March 2017 #PINCHme #HappyPINCHer

I've been signed up with PINCHme for a long time now but it's rare that I qualify for any of the freebies. Most months my account shows "No samples are available for you today as your Member Profile does not match our Brand Partners needs". But every month I keep updating my surveys to make sure that all of my information/preferences are current & then I cross my fingers that I'll get at least a couple of free samples. In March I finally got samples!!! Four Samples!!!

It took quite a while for the box to actually arrive but this is what I am sampling:

SlimFast Advanced Nutrition Smoothie - Creamy Chocolate flavor
Sensodyne Deep Clean Toothpaste for sensitive teeth & cavity prevention
Shout Color Catcher Dye-Trapping Sheets
Mepitel Film Hospital Quality Wound Care Dressing

I also received coupons for $4 off any box of Mepilex Wound Care (sold at CVS) & a free 8x8 photo book from Shutterfly!

The SlimFast actually tastes better than I had anticipated so I'll keep it in  mind when I'm ready to commit to sticking with a weight loss plan.

I'm using the Sensodyne toothpaste because my teeth are sensitive to cold. It has a good taste & leaves my mouth with a fresh cool sensation so that is something that makes me want to continue to use the product. It's too soon to know if it helps my sensitivity or not so I'll buy a full-sized product when this is gone so I can see if it will help.

I can't say enough about Shout Color Catchers! I have already bought more & I use them with almost every load of laundry. Even if I think there is nothing that has color that will run, I'm sometimes surprised that the little sheet comes out covered in color. I still sort my laundry by color but I'd rather be safe than sorry so this is a product that I'll definitely continue to use.

The Mepitel Film covers a larger area & is easier to remove than a traditional bandaid. As long as you make sure that there is no moisture where the film sticks to your skin, it can be worn for about a week. It is breathable & keeps the wound clean. When it is removed, it doesn't pull or hurt your skin. These are great for all skin from children to older adults.

I haven't ordered my photo book yet but I use Shutterfly for photos & gifts all the time. It's a great company, has great customer service & I've been happy with everything I've ever ordered.

You can sign up for PINCHme by going to www.pinchme.com. Fill in all of your information & be sure to keep all of your surveys current. You probably won't be eligible for samples every month, but they offer a wide range of samples & when you qualify for a box you'll be surprised & very happy!

The next PINCHme samples will be available on April 11th at Noon EST.

Unboxing....Target Beauty Box #2 January 2017 #BeautyGoals #TargetBeauty #TargetStyle

Oops.....I wrote this back in January when I received my beauty boxes but haven't been back on my blog since then (life happens!) & I just saw that this post was still in draft form. So....better late than never!

For January, Target offered two Beauty Boxes & I got them both. The first one arrived a couple of days ago & this one arrived today, even though I ordered them both on the same day.

The products in this beauty box came wrapped in pastel blue tissue paper & the theme of the box is "beauty #GOALS". An information card is included that tells all about the products plus a coupon for $3 off of any beauty purchase of $15 or more at Target or Target.com.

These are the products that came in this box:

Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner (2 fl. oz. sample $3)
Colgate Enamel Health Whitening Toothpaste (Full Size $3)
Mane 'n Tail Shampoo (2 fl. oz. sample $0.40)
Vaseline Cocoa Butter (1 fl. oz. sample $0.30)
SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Nourish & Silken Shampoo (0.50 oz. sample $0.40)
SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Nourish & Silken Conditioner (1 oz. sample $0.90)
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes (7 wipes $1.40)
Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Lotion (1.7 fl. oz. sample $0.90)
Miss Jessie's Quick Curls (1 fl. oz. sample $2.75)
(prices from Target.com)

These products have a value of about $13 and I paid $5 with free shipping. Target Beauty Boxes are not a subscription box that you can sign up for so you have to be ready when they are offered because they are first come, first serve & they sell out pretty quickly. 

I try to get these boxes each time they are offered because they usually contain products that I already use or have wanted to try so I'll be watching & waiting for the next Target Beauty Box & I'll give you a heads up!
