Walgreens Beauty Box Review!

I recently was able to check out the new Walgreens Beauty Box that was full of summer-ready products and I wanted to share the details with you... as I am sure you would love to check out one of these boxes as well!

Right now when you spend $30 on participating beauty products at Walgreens you can redeem your Balance Rewards points for your own free Beauty Box as well.  Here is how it works... first sign up for a Balance Rewards card at Walgreens (if you haven't already! I've been using mine for a while now to save and earn coupons towards future purchases. Plus, it's free!), then spend $30 on participating beauty products (details here...) and then redeem your points online for your own free Beauty Box!  It's so easy!

So when you receive your box in the mail, what can you expect?  Here are the goodies I found in mine...

What lady doesn't love little samples galore to test out and to pamper yourself with? 

I was most excited to dig into the two BB Cream samples. One from Maybelline and one from L'Oreal.  Lately I have been really enjoying using a BB Cream each morning and I loved the opportunity to try two side by side at once! All the BB Creams are so different, so it was cool to see them directly compared. (on the left is Maybelline and on the top/right is L'Oreal) The Maybelline BB was creamy and translucent and blended well.  The L'Oreal was thicker with really great coverage.  Both had different strengths.

I also really liked the Aveeno Protect + Hydrate lotion... it's an SPF 30 that also has plenty of moisture power.  This summer I have been feeling like the standard SPF is too drying for my skin... so I was thrilled to experiment with this lotion.  It's ideal for everyday wear or just slapping on at the pool.  That is just the type of versatility I need with an SPF these days.

I highly recommend you check out these boxes... I think you will really enjoy them!

Beauty can be found anywhere if you know where to look and, more importantly, who to ask. Walgreens has Beauty Advisors in every store, making expert beauty advice more accessible than ever. With Balance Rewards, spend $30 in store on participating beauty products and get a sample box by mail with this season's best beauty finds. Learn more at
