New Beauty Test Tube Box Review – Summer 2012
One of my absolute favorite subscription boxes is the New Beauty Test Tube program. This program is sent quarterly, there are typically several full size products and it comes with New Beauty magazine. In fact, I love it so much I get two boxes, and I also subscribe to the QVC New Beauty Test Tube (coming out later this summer).
Cost: 38.90 including shipping
Here’s what was featured in the packet that comes with the samples:
Hydroxatone Instant Effect 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer – 15 .02 fl oz packets approx value $30
This product actually reminded me of the Peter Thomas Roth Instant Firmx formula: it did instantly reduce wrinkles – almost earning miracle product status, but it turns white – maybe I used too much – and I’m not sure it would work well under make up. (UPDATE – does work with mineral makeup, but not liquid makeup!)
Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick – FULL SIZE Value: $20
I’m a big fan of Mally products. I love the eye shadow sticks from last quarter’s test tube, and this lip gloss is great as well. Not too sticky, good shine, nice wearable color.
It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin – 2 fl oz (4 fl oz full size) Value $10
Excited to try this. It gets crazy good reviews.
I’ll update once I give it a go!UPDATE – this is my new favorite hair product. It’s made my hair so soft and I don’t have to worry about using too much and getting greasy hair like I often do with other products.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum – FULL SIZE Value $20
The reviews on this product seem to be mixed. I’m not super pumped about this drugstore item, but I’ll add it to the serum pile and maybe get to it someday 🙂
Olay Pro-X Clear Complexion Renewing Lotion – .24 fl ox approx value $3.25
I think I’ll give this a try. It’s supposed to fade the look of spots and redness for an overall renewed appearance.
Neutrogena Brightening Eye Perfector – FULL SIZE $13.99
I like that this has SPF built in, and also is made to be used to cover dark circles and on the brow bone and inner corners of the eye for more brightening. Excited to try!
Lumene Time Freeze Firming Night Cream .5 fl ox (1.7 fl oz full size) approx value $5
This cream is supposed to boost collagen production and help prevent signs of aging. I’ll probably try it.
In addition to the products shown on New Beauty’s Test Tube site, there were 4 bonus samples I was very surprised and excited to see!
