1888 Mills Towels, Made Here Towel Collection – The towels are not only made here but the cotton is 100% USA grown. These towels are generous in size, absorbent and soft. Their towels have the look and feel of a more expensive towel yet maintain the expected low price Walmart offers.

Wally's has done all the blending for you so they are ready to use without compromise to your well-being. Their essential oil blends are USDA organic, non GMO and use no synthetic ingredients. I use the energy blend at my mid-day slump to help reinvigorate my motivation. Wally’s Natural Aromatherapy Blends are available on www.walmart.com only, and not in Walmart stores.
The boar bristle hair brushes by Apollo come in a range of barrel sizes for the perfect blowout. American made beauty tools are hard to find so getting one of these some where as convenient as Wal-Mart is a pleasant surprise. Your blow drying time is shorter and more comfortable with one of their brushes. The design skips the molded together plastic for one smooth piece. This stops the breakage of hair from being pulled into the various crevices, this feature makes it stand out to me. The smoothest, most shiny hair comes from boar bristle brushes.
