New Beauty Test Tube Review – November 2013

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.

Now on to the items in the tube!

New Beauty Test Tube Review - November 2013

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.

  1. test tube ripped me off. They charge me in December and I don’t get a box till January/ February. When I found this out they would not let me cancel and they sent me a box anyway and in the box with all tiny sample sizes they do not give full sizes like they claim so I had to dispute the charges with my bank

  2. if i sign up now can i get this box?

  3. Molton Brown is so hot right now, and I am super jealous of that lotion. I agree about the Stri-Vectin being one of the most effective skin care brands, that was such a great value. I am not sure I have ever seen a new beauty without a lumene product, lol. They must be sponsors.

  4. Got mine yesterday and it is awesome! Love the candle, the hand therapy and the Molton Brown! Actually everything was really awesome to get and what I don’t use, there are stockings waiting to be filled! : )
