When it comes to treating yourself, the understanding is that you're about to spend a whole lot of money that you don't have in order to pamper yourself. But Walmart is about to turn that concept on its head with Walmart's Beauty Boxes, which cost less than $10 a pop. I know what you must be thinking right now: who wants a cheap beauty box filled with so-so products? But the low price has nothing to do with the quality of the product — in fact, you'll be shocked with how much the big box brand is giving away in beauty products for so little.
You can get some of your favorite staples (and some of them in full-size bottles to boot!) for only a fraction of the price. The boxes range in value between $20 and $40, but only ring up at $9.88 at checkout. There will be six different themes to choose from, where you can either pick to indulge yourself in hair care, eye products, a lippie set, a glow box, a nature-inspired selection, or a curl treatment set.
If you think this deal is too good to be true, there is one important catch: Walmart is rolling these boxes out in limited quantities, so you will have to snap them up while you have the chance. They will be available for sale on April 26, and will be available online and in 3,000 store locations. To give you an idea of what to expect, below are the options. You won't believe how good they are.
