New Beauty Test Tube Subscription Box Review – March 2014
New Beauty Test Tube is a bi-monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Every other month they send you a tube full of deluxe and full size beauty samples, a Beauty To-Go bonus sample pack, and you also get a subscription to New Beauty Magazine. It’s a little pricier than other beauty subscriptions, but in general the value is usually incredible. (FYI – this is a different subscription from the QVC New Beauty Test Tube which ships every quarter).
The Subscription Box: New Beauty Test Tube
The Cost: $29.95 a box plus $8.95 shipping (ships every other month)
The Products: Deluxe and full size beauty products. (This subscription also includes a subscription to New Beauty Magazine).
Ships to: US only

In addition to the “tube” of beauty products that each subscriber gets, there’s also a New Beauty Beauty To-Go pack that varies by box. My Beauty To-Go Samples included:
Rodial Stemcell Super-Food Facial Oil – 1ml Value $2.50
Phytolisse Perfect Smoothing Shampoo – 1.7 oz Value $4.80
Hydroxatone Instant Wrinkle Filler – 1 oz (FULL SIZE! Value $80!)
Glymed Plus Intense Peptide Skin Recovery Complex – .125 oz Value $10.25
Now on to the main products!
Each New Beauty Test Tube comes with a booklet thoroughly detailing each product included.
Glam Glow YouthMud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment – .5 oz Value $19
Grandelash MD Grande Mascara – Deluxe Sample Value $10
I just got this Glam Glow YouthMud in my Love Lula Beauty Box and I love it. I’m so happy to have another sample!
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Forever Flushed – FULL SIZE! Value $25
YBF Perfect Prep Face Primer – .5 oz Value $10
I absolutely love Tarte products, so I was thrilled to discover this blush in the New Beauty Test Tube! (Their makeup is formulated without parabens, phthalates, etc. and it works great too). Subscribers will either get this shade or Naturally Sunkissed – a bronzer.
Bioxidea Miracle 48 Mask in Gold – Value $25
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes – 7 wipes Value $1.50
These Bioxidea Miracle Masks seem to be in every subscription box lately! I guess it’s time to finally try one!
Professional Solutions Triple Action Vitamin C Antioxidant – FULL SIZE! Value $40
It’s a 10 Miracle Leave In Lite – 2 oz Value $9
Philosophy Hope in A Jar – .4 oz Value $8
This Professional Solutions serum is new to me, but I’m excited to try it, and I love that the sent a full size version! (One of my biggest pet peeves with skincare samples in subscription boxes is when companies send out tiny samples that won’t last you long enough to see if the product works for you!)
Verdict: I am so happy with the March New Beauty Test Tube! Based on the last two boxes I was worried this box was turning into a drugstore brand box, but the brands included this month are exactly what I want from New Beauty Test Tube! And the value this month was amazing as well – $150 worth of products in the tube, and I lucked out and got another $100 worth of samples in the Beauty To-Go bag! Definitely worth the $39 I paid – plus I love the magazine that comes with this subscription.
What did you think of the New Beauty Test Tube this month? And which Beauty To-Go samples did you get in your box?
