New Beauty Test Tube Review: Women’s Beauty Sample Boxes – April 2013
New Beauty Test Tube is one of the original beauty subscription boxes – and it’s also one of my favorites. (This used to be a quarterly box, but now it looks like it will be shipping every other month – yay!)
The Box: New Beauty Test Tube
The Cost: $29.95 plus shipping
The Products: Exclusive beauty products delivered to your door 6 times a year
Each box comes with a brochure with details on each product.
I really like this part of the box, it gives you tons of info, and it always gets me excited to try the products!
I received these in a Pop Sugar Must Have box as well. I can’t use hair products with sulfates because I have color-treated hair, so I’ll be passing these along to a friend.
Suki Exfoiliating Foaming Cleanser – 1 oz Value $8.24
June Jacobs Skin Care Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque – 1.6 oz Value $26.81
This Suki cleanser is made with lemongrass extract and natural sugar – it smells amazing! It’s also supposed to jump-start collagen production – I think this will be my new go-to cleanser!
Spalook Coupons ($10 off $60, $25 off $125, and $50 off $200)
Forever Young Face Wraps – Value $5 each
While I don’t count coupons against box value, I will say that i have used spalook coupons included in this box before to get my Clarisonic – best purchase ever!
Paula Dorf Baby Eyes Enhancer (mini size) – Value $5
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray – 1 oz Value $1.50
Phtyo Phytodefrisant – 1.7 oz Value $13.40
I think I may be most excited to try this hair relaxing balm – it straightens and moisturizes without chemicals! Plus, I love the Phyto brand!
This box also included New Beauty Magazine – Value $10
Verdict: I’ve been spoiled by past New Beauty Test Tubes – I’m used to getting more full sized products! Just counting the beauty products (not the coupons or magazine), this box had a value of about $70 (Even though that’s a great value, the box values typically are a lot higher!). That’s more than double what I paid, and I will use most of the products, so I’m happy with this box, but I can’t wait until my QVC New Beauty Test Tube arrives! What did you think of the April New Beauty Test Tube?
