From The Lab Beauty Subscription Box Review – April 2014
From the Lab is a unique beauty subscription box – each month they send you a new beauty product that isn’t on the market yet. The idea is that beauty companies heavily markup their products, so by getting the beauty product after it’s created and tested in the lab, they can send you the products for much less than you would pay once they are branded in the upcoming months/years.
From the Lab kindly sent me this box to review.

From the Lab Micro Cellular Body Treatment No. 615 – Value $65 approx
From the Lab describes this lotion as “deceptively light” and I’d say that’s a fair assessment. It’s a light lotion that absorbs really well, and didn’t leave my skin greasy. It’s supposed to also improve the look of skin (wrinkles, sun spots, other aging signs). I can’t speak to that since I’ve only tried it once so far – but it seems promising.
I was also happy to see that From the Lab products are never tested on animals and are always paraben-free!
Verdict: So far I’m intrigued by this subscription. It’s still a little weird to be using non-branded beauty products, but I guess I need to get over that! I’m curious to see what the May box brings, and I like that everything is full size, and if a product works for you, you can buy more in the shop.
