New Beauty Test Tube Subscription Box Review – Nov 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 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).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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
Each New Beauty Test Tube comes with a booklet thoroughly detailing each product included.
Votivo Icy Blue PIne Candle Tin – FULL SIZE! Value $15
I got the exact same candle in the November box from 2013. I like scent and it’s holiday appropriate – but I really wish they mixed up products/brands more. It’s as though they aren’t expecting anyone to subscribe for over a year. 🙁
(According to the pamphlet there are two options for this candle: Ice Blue Pine or Red Currant).
Frizz Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme – 1.25 oz Value $1
Chi Silk Infusion – 2 oz Value $8
I avoid sulfates in hair products since my hair is color-treated, so I’ll be passing this Frizz-Ease smoothing cream along to a friend. I’m excited to use the Chi Silk Infusion though since I use a hair straightener pretty much every day.
Klorane Make-Up Remover Biodegradable Wipes with Soothing Cornflower – FULL SIZE! Value $12.50
Revision Skincare Intellishade Broad Spectrum SPF 45 (Regular and Matte Samples) – Value $4?
I love that these wipes are paraben, alcohol and fragrance free! And most importantly – they work at removing my mascara!
I tried out the matte version of this intellishade tinted moisturizer. It doesn’t provide much coverage at all, so I’d recommend it if you are looking for a barely-there BB Cream with SPF.
Dermalogica Precleanse – 1 oz Value $9.50
Donell Lip Saver SPF 15 – FULL SIZE! Value $7
I’ve been impressed with all the dermalogica products I’ve sampled so far, and I’m happy to have more precleanse! This lip balm brand is new to me. It’s a very moisturizing lip balm which is great – but just not that exciting of a product.
Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Ice Blue – FULL SIZE! Value $15
A New Beauty Test Tube wouldn’t be complete without a Mally product- right? I really wish they would use more brand variety in these boxes, but at the same time if I was new to this subscription I’d be very excited to see this product in the box – I’ve been impressed with all the Mally eyeliners, eye shadow pens, and liquid lipsticks I’ve tried thanks to New Beauty Test Tube!
(Subscribers will get this pencil one of the following colors: Sailor, Midnight, Onyx, Ice Blue or Starshine).
Verdict: This box has a value of a little over $70. It’s almost double the cost – which is pretty good. I just really want to see them try out new brands in this box.
