Check out all of my New Beauty Test Tube reviews!
Each Test Tube comes with a booklet detailing each item included and the latest copy of New Beauty magazine.
The info booklet is pretty detailed and helpful too.
Lea Journo Pro Series Technician Shampoo Creme (2 oz) Value $4
Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter (1 oz) Value $5
I’ve received a lot of bliss products thanks to New Beauty Test Tubes, but I love the citrusy scent of this moisture cream – so no complaints! (And this shampoo is sulfate-free, paraben-free and smells great too!).
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF50 in Medium+ (4 ml) Value $5
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (10 ml) Value $4
I wish this IT Cosmetics CC Cream was a larger size – I love it. It has more coverage than most BB/CC creams, and the medium shade surprisingly works really well with my skin tone.
I’ve received a few of these hand creams from subscription boxes and they are always good to have in your purse – especially now that winter is coming!
Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick (mini) Value $15
Laura Geller Waterproof Eye Spackle – Value $23
These two products seem to be in every New Beauty Test Tube. (I really wish they had more variety!) I guess to mix things up this month we get a mini Mally lipgloss instead of the full size!
Dr. Denese HydroShield Ultra Moisturizing Face Serum (10 ml) Value $20
Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel (7 g) Value $7
These are the two items I’m most excited to try from the box. They both get excellent reviews, are free of ingredients I try to avoid, and perfect for winter skincare!
Verdict: I feel like I keep repeating myself with these New Beauty Test Tube boxes, but I really wish they would mix it up and include different brands/products. (I like Mally liquid lipstick, but I have dozens now!) I think this is probably a subscription that is great for a few boxes, but if you’ve been subscribing for years like me, the specialness is fading. The value is pretty good though – over $80. (I paid about $37).
Do you subscribe to the QVC New Beauty Test Tube? What do you think of it?
