QVC New Beauty Test Tube Review – January 2014
The QVC New Beauty Test Tube is a separate subscription from the original New Beauty Test Tube (it’s a little confusing, but this box ships every quarter, and the original New Beauty Test Tube ships every other month).
The Box: QVC New Beauty Test Tube – January 2014 (available every quarter).
The Cost: $29.96 plus $6.72 shipping (sign up for auto delivery to get a subscription, or you can purchase a box individually).
The Products: Full size and deluxe size beauty products, plus New Beauty Test Tube magazine.
Check out all of my New Beauty Test Tube reviews!
Each box comes with New Beauty magazine and a booklet detailing each product.
The booklet is really helpful and gives you more information on each brand and how to use each product.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in Neutral Medium – 0.11-fl oz Value $4.75
Alterna Caviar CC Cream – 0.85-fl oz Value $7.50
I’ve only used this hair CC cream once, but I already love it! It gives just a little bit of hold, fights frizz, makes hair soft and seven other things! Plus Alterna products are paraben, sulfate and phthalate free!
Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight – FULL SIZE! Value $15
CHI Smart Silk Iron Guard Mist – 3 oz Value $6
Normally this is the point in the review where I would complain about ANOTHER Mally eye liner in a New Beauty Test Tube, but I knew what I was getting in this box before I bought it, so I need to just accept that Mally products will always be in New Beauty Test Tubes!
Algenist Retinol Firming Serum – .33 oz Value $32
Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste – 1.75 oz Value $8.75
This Algenist serum is one of the main reasons I decided to buy this box. It gets excellent reviews on Sephora, and I’ve been very happy with other Algenist skincare products I’ve sampled. (And it’s paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free!)
Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Wash – 1 oz Value $2
Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Lotion – 1 oz Value $2
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution – .25 oz Value $12.50
This lotion is very light and absorbs quickly. Usually I prefer a thicker lotion/cream, but I like the scent of this one a lot. (And it’s free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates too!)
Verdict: I paid about $37 for this box and received approximately $90 worth of beauty products, plus New Beauty Magazine (Value $10). I’m going to use most if not all of the products, so the value is great for me, and I really like reading New Beauty Magazine too!
