New Beauty Test Tube Review – November 2013
It’s crazy to think that New Beauty Test Tube is the original beauty sample box – but I think Birchbox gets most of the credit since they were the first to do a monthly box, and for only $10!
I’ve been subscribing to both for years now. New Beauty Test Tube is great for deluxe sized samples. (They usually include a mix of high end and drugstore brands).
FYI – this box ships every other month.
The Subscription Box: New Beauty Test Tube
The Cost: $29.95 a box plus $8.95 shipping
The Products: Deluxe and full size beauty products.
Ships to: US only
Votivo Icy Blue PIne Candle Tin – Value $15
Each test tube also comes with a beauty to-go pack with a few samples:
The samples included: EraClea Eye Surround Cream Radial Super Food Facial Oil, Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight (1 oz).
Now on to the items in the tube!
StriVectin-EV Even Brightening Serum – 1 oz Value $52
Glo Therapeutics Refresh Facial Polish – 1 oz Value $14
This StriVectin serum alone makes this box worth the cost for me! I love StriVectin skincare products – they are pretty much the only samples I’ve gotten from subscription boxes where I could truly see results in a few weeks. And this super-sized sample should last me a long time!
Glo Therapeutics is new to me, and I’m excited to try this facial scrub – it has a super refreshing mint scent!
Camille Beckman Midnight Monarch Glycerine Hand Therapy – 1.35 oz Value $2.50
Lumene Time Freeze Anti-Age CC Color Correcting Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $14.99
There have been quite a few lumene products in past boxes, but I’m happy to see a makeup product from their line!
Frizz Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme – 1.25 oz Value $1.50
Molton Brown Pink Pepperpot Nourishing Body Lotion – 3.3 oz Value $14
Vaseline Lip Therapy in Rosy Lips – Value $1.99
I read in the included booklet that 100 subscribers received a Vaseline Lip Therapy covered in crystals:
Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – Value $1.50
Verdict: I paid $29.95 plus $8.95 shipping for this box and received about $115 worth of products (plus a New Beauty magazine subscription that ships separately). I’m always happy with the value of this box! I won’t use all the products this month, but it’s still a good box for me.
