I mentioned a few weeks ago that I received my Spring Walmart Beauty Box. I finally got around to trying most of the products, and I've got to say I'm pretty impressed. Generally, the items come is one-time use sample sizes, but the occasional travel-size or full size product will be included as well. Coupons are provided for most or all samples included in the box.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner: After using this, my hair looked incredibly shiny and felt very soft. My hair was very fluffy and way fuller than usual. If I was the kind of person to "splurge" on shampoos and conditioners, these are definitely worth the $6 a bottle.

L'oreal Color Vibrancy shampoo, conditioner and instant shock treatment cream: I love the way this made my hair look and feel. Every strand was soft, smooth, and shiny, without looking greasy. Ironically, my hair's only color-treated on the tips.

Nivea Nourishing In-Shower Body Lotion: This wasn't terrible. It actually made my skin pretty soft, but didn't keep them moisturized all day like I thought it maybe would.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation: I really liked the way this foundation made my skin look from a comfortable distant. Up close,  you could see the make up in my pores, which I didn't like. It looked nice for my overall look, though.

Lady Gaga Fame fragrance: I love the smell of this. It's smells delectable. Floral, but almost woodsy at the same time. Plus, the scent lasted throughout most the day.

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omera Repair & Moisture shampoo and conditioner: I love how this makes my hair look. It doesn't get greasy after the first day (I usually wash my hair every 2-3 days), and it keeps it so soft and voluminous. The shampoo has an odd smell, like sunscreen, which makes me wonder what's in it. It also doesn't get very sudsy, so I feel like I have to use extra to get all of my hair. Overall, though, I love how my hair feels afterwards.

Dove Go Fresh Revitalize body wash: This smells like creamsicles, but made my body feel oddly dry afterwards. I didn't like it.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters facial cleanser: This facial cleanser made my face feel really smooth, soft and clean afterwards. I didn't notice any major changes to my skin, but it worked well overall.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil for Hair: I put this stuff on the ends of my hair and rolled it up into a bun before I went to sleep. Bad idea, it made my hair look so stringy and greasy. After brushing it out and straightening it, it ended up not looking so bad, and my hair felt really healthy.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes: I love these, and will probably buy them in the future. They're thick enough where you can thoroughly use both sides to clean your makeup off. Plus, they didn't leave my skin feeling sticky like other wipes do.

Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lipstain in Red Minx: I love this stuff. It is hands down my favorite thing from the box, and it's full-sized! It's very glossy when first applying, but I typically blot and I'm good to go for most of the day. The lipstain truly is moisturizing and stays on most of the day. I generally touch up after eating, but other than that, the color stays on so well and doesn't bleed. Plus, the color is universally beautiful. I plan to buy this in a couple of other colors.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara in black: This mascara really gets the job done. It made my eyelashes very long and dark, but not very thick. It also went on very smooth, so there were virtually no clumps! The mascara was, however, a very wet mascara, which took too long to dry. I keep it in my purse now, as a back up, but it's definitely not my mascara first-choice.

The Walmart beauty box comes four times a year (once each season) and it's free! You just pay $5 in shipping and handling. You can sign up to receive this box here.
