philosophy amazing grace shampoo, bath, and shower gel – 1 oz Value $1.50
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment – .5 oz Value $22
This ExfoliKate treatment is the item I’m most excited about in the box. And I love that it takes practically no time to use – just massage it into your face and let it sit for up to two minutes!
Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Dusk – FULL SIZE! Value $25
Doll 10 Beauty Luxe Lip Gloss in Blush – FULL SIZE! Value $10?
If you are new to New Beauty Test Tubes, and you discover you love this Mally shadow stick – resist the urge to buy more! These show up in about every other box so you will build your collection out in no time!
This lip gloss brand is new to me, and I like it. The color is somewhat creamy and I think the look is very natural.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy – .08 oz Value $13
bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash – 2 oz Value $9
I love Fresh lip products, but they’re pretty pricey. I don’t think I’ve ever finished using a lip balm, gloss, etc. so this mini version is perfect for me!
PHYTO Phytodefrisant Straightening Balm – 1.7 oz Value $14
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil – Travel Size (.0025 oz) Value $12
I’m not sure if this PHYTO straightening balm is a good match for my hair type, but I’m going to give it a try. (Based on the reviews on Sephora it looks like you get the best results with this product if you blow dry and straighten your hair.
I love this brow pencil. I’ve tried a few universal color pencils before (the concept is you get darker color the harder you press down on the pencil), but a few of them have had some reddish undertones that don’t work well for me. I think the color of this brow pencil is perfect, and it’s so easy to use!
Verdict: I paid about $37 for this box (shipped) and I received over $100 worth of beauty products. I think I’ll use every item in the box, so I’m very happy with the value! What do you think of the QVC New Beauty Test Tube this month?
