  1. No available / working coupon? 😐

  2. Story time! I was charged for this May box and called in, as I didn’t want it. The girl I talked to was super nice and said nothing had been sent out so she could cancel my sub and refund my $38. I got an email that said sub was cancelled, then one that said $38 refund- there was a $38 refund showing in my bank account. Awesome. Thought it was a done deal- WRONGO! Next day I was charged twice for $38 and $38 back to back. I went back onto my NB account and sure enough my sub still showed active. I called again. Girl was rude and seem to not understand, transferred me to this guy Matt. Matt understood. He apologized and said he had no idea what was going on and would refund me for all of it. WHILE I WAS ON THE PHONE WITH HIM I got a shipping confirmation for a “tube” labeled July 2019. He was like that is totally bizarre, that tube isn’t even out yet and IDK why they are shipping you anything. He told me all my money would be refunded and to just keep whatever it is that they sent me for “July” … oooohkay.. Fast forward 2 days and the money is back in my account and I got the “tube”. Yes, I got the “tube” in 2 days- and it’s this May tube. IDK what is going on over there but cheeze and rice man. IDK if I will ever order from them again after all this..

    TBH it almost seemed like they tried to “force” me to buy it. Because if it already shipped out they don’t refund you. So literally while you are on the phone with cs they ship it and then cs goes “oh well, so sorry”.. Shady the house!!

    • WOW Jen we’re so sorry for the issue you had to experience and I’m hoping all has been resolved, if you should encounter any further similar issues with your closed account please send us an email with full details ATTN to Alyssa

      • Thank you Alyssa, I definitely will! And thank you for being active in our community and responding 🙂

    • Looks like at the end of the day, you got your money refunded, and you still got the tube? I get that it’s annoying to have to call about it but it looks like you made out pretty good in the end…..?

    • I had a similar experience! I called and canceled, but was still charged and sent my TT. I called back and they said that they were sorry and they offered to send me something in return. I accepted and it turned out to be a Kate Somerville EradiKate…I was given the option of an acne treatment, hydrate, etc…there were 5 options and I didn’t know what the products were. The gentleman said the acne treatment was popular and I just chose that. After all of that, I put most of the products on the MSA Swap site…got a swap and USPS lost my package (so I’m dealing with claims and all of that). I feel so defeated in the whole process. Like I had to pay for something I didn’t want and paid again to have it lost…ugghhhh.

  3. If you purchase the NewBeauty + Dillards box with 18 samples and a $15 off coupon you get a $10 off coupon for your first TestTube! I might just have to jump on this even though I need for nothing at this point!

    • Thanks for the heads up! Is it available online? I searched and wasn’t able to find it.

    • I haven’t seen it available on Dillard’s site yet. Has anyone? It says it is not available to order yet.

  4. I’m not super excited about this months box but I forgot to get cancel so hopefully I’ll find something good about it ♥️

    • Me too. Lol.

  5. Wow, just got my shipping notification for May’s box, seems early but yay! 🙂

    • I just got mine too! An unexpected but pleasant surprise!

    • Wow lucky! Hopefully I get mine soon too! 🙂

    • I got mine too!

  6. I went with the beauty report spring box and use the $5 coupon code TTBR5. total was 3495 free shipping the brightening gel is worth it retails for $99 alone.

  7. Yes if you signed up for a year you can’t skip or cancel well that’s what I read anyway check under Q&A on their site , I learned my lesson the hard way with LF box , I did 6 mo this and I don’t like the sub and now I’m stuck until it’s over in July 😞 feels like I’m throwing money away . From now on only month to month subs or special one time box deals .

    • Thanks Anne. I should have read the fine print

  8. I called to skip May and they said I could not do it since I already prepaid my subscription for the whole year. Please share your experience and confirm if it’s true

    Thanks

  9. Try TTBR5 for
    Promo $5.00 off upon checkout
    Hope that helps

  10. Dang auto correct lol meant *good not food 🤣

  11. I ended up getting the BeautyReport Box too lol did you use the code for $5.00 off , what a great collection of skin and hair care !! I’m always a huge sucker for food skin care, and that amazing sunscreen , been looking for one of those instead of self tanners 😁🥳 fabs !!

    • Anne, I would love the $5 code. That $99 brightening skin spray looks amazing in the box!

  12. Wow Pat that box sounds great 😁

    Stephanie I just emailed them and skipped this month it was easy .. wait is there a special spring box ? And why is it an extra $10.00 so confused please help .. lol my addiction is real 😁👍

  13. Liz, or does anyone know when we need to cancel by if we decide to skip the May tube? I kind of want the Spring box instead for an extra $10. I just can’t decide?!? 😂

    • Hey, Stephanie, we hope you got the answer needed although, for future reference If you cancel by the 10th of the billing month, you will not receive the next shipment and will not be charged moving forward.

      • I was completely happy with customer service! I sent an email and got a prompt response, so I was able to skip this Tube. I got the Spring Report Box and LOVE it! Thank you sooo much for following up! 😀

  14. I’ve been unsubbing from boxes right and left but haven’t unsubbed from this one yet. And then they sent me an email about the NewBeauty BeautyReport box which looks amazing and I CAVED. It’s got some SIO patches, a C serum, Living Proof, Bioderma Micellar (love that stuff), Has Biotin thickening spray…I can’t believe what a sucker I am!

  15. Emailed customer service – put this upcoming TT on hold , nothing is really appealing to me since last TT killed it !! At least I’m saving my money and my spot bc I’m sure even though IMO this one is a dud , ext TT will be great ❤️😁

  16. Just got my Beauty Report magazine and saw they were selling the spring box at newbeauty.com/beautybox. $40

    Kept running into issues submitting my order online (no shipping options) so I placed my order over the phone. Website went live a couple of hours ago.

    • Is that the selection though – what it shows in the image on that page?

      I am definitely not wowed.

    • Wow….Thanks, Tina.
      I was looking forward to this!
      Looks like a great box 🙂

  17. Really excited by the MMXV Infinitude Universal Facial Treatment!! This is always a great box.

  18. At first glance I was kind of meh, but looking further I’m really intrigued with the ScalpForce spray. My scalp gets burned every time I’m in the pool, so I’m excited to try this out. The Derma E peel looks great too. They might not be super exciting brands, but it’s definitely a useful box. Test Tube has consistently been a good sub for me. I might not like everything, but it’s always worth the money. I recommend it if you’re on the fence about subscribing.

  19. Their customer service is awful! I just re-started my sub and I loved the March box, but never received the magazine…when I called customer service, they kept throwing me back & forth between New Beauty & Test Tube, and neither was able to tell me when I would receive the magazine. Apparently the box & the mag are handled separately. AND their customer service was rude to me…so I cancelled. And all they had to say was “goodbye”…they did nothing to try and keep me as a subscriber. I had been a subscriber for years previously and took a break last year, but just decided to re-sub. I’m done with New Beauty.

    • Hello!

      We are very sorry to hear about your experience! We would definitely love to help you out and make sure you are completely satisfied, please email us at [email protected] address it to “Steve” and we will get everything sorted out for you.

    • funny, when i called customer service they couldn’t even be bothered to say “goodbye”. he just said “alright” & hung up. it was mildly shocking. i wasn’t rude or anything. that must just be his phone etiquette. but strange for business practice.

    • I just received my magazine on Friday.. it does not come with the test tube box. It comes separately. You should be receiving it soon.

  20. When I opened my box, everything was banged up, damaged, and destroyed, and leaking. I took pictures and sent them right away to Test Tube. They promised me a new shipment on 3/5/19. Nothing. That is what I have heard from them. No tracking, nothing. I have sent them 3 emails, I have called. This is my first experience with them, and I am not feeling very confident with the company as a whole. Test Tube said that they would replace the box, which made me very happy; but I expect service- not to take more than a month.

    In this day and age, this is unacceptable.

    • I find it is easiest to deal with their Facebook page.

  21. It doesn’t seem as packed as past tubes (and I agree there was no way to beat the Sunday Riley full size!) but I’m actually pretty interested in the ScalpForce UV filter spray. I suffer scalp burns when I’m out in the sun and I’ve never used a product like this.

  22. I called and skipped this one, but hope that July’s is great. 🙂 I loved March’s NewBeauty TestTube.

    • What number did you call? I have been trying for two days to call and cancel and have been on hold forever. This is not the right cancellation process. They are almost forcing me to get this box.

      • 1-888-974-6042

        • Thanks. I was able to get a hold of them and also skipped.
          It’s a nice box but I just don’t need any of these products right now.

  23. I just received tracking for the March Tube! 🎊🎉

    • Hey I got a shipping notice also 3 days ago and I went to look where it was and they haven’t shipped anything yet, they just made a label. I signed up on March 2 and never got anything. I finally got someone on email… but they keep saying it is coming I was going to cancel bc I dont wanna be charged again so I went on there website and it shows something has a label but hasn’t lefted but I saw skipped where you see if yours has shipped. So I don’t know what to do…

      • They were probably expecting the restock shipment of the one product today and have been making shipping labels this week in anticipation of that. So maybe we will all see movement by Monday! If you don’t want to get charged for May’s Tube, cancel before April 10th.

        • K thank you

          • Hey Caressa, Were glad to hear you finally received a shipping confirmation. Most likely your Tube is on its way, you may want to allow 48 hours for the tracking number to become active. If you continue to have issues thereafter please feel free to send us an email addressed to Alyssa and we’d be glad to help

  24. Woohoo, just got my shipping notice for March box

    • I just received mine as well!

  25. At least the Grande isn’t a lip plumper!

  26. Just so you know in case you didn’t already, I called customer service and had them skip this one for me. Nice that you can pause and unpause as you see fit!

    • I decided to skip as well. Shouldn’t their new beauty boxes be coming out? The CS told me that they have three or four boxes a year but I haven’t come across any this year yet

      • I was wondering the same thing. I love the Beauty Report Box. Seems like the spring one should be out by now.

        • You’re right. Last year the Spring box came out on April 3rd, and we had already seen full spoilers by late March. I wonder if it’ll be coming out in May instead, and it’ll be called a Mother’s Day box or something 🙂

          • There is a Dillard’s & New Beauty Limited Edition box that’s supposed to be at Dillard’s stores on April 22nd with 18 items (plus $15 off your next purchase). It says it will be $25. Looks like a lot of smaller sizes from the photos. I was hoping for the Beauty Award Winners box again!

          • The C.S. lady told me that the beauty report box will be up for purchase this month. So will see 😬

          • Shannon – I saw that Dillards box too! For those who want it, hopefully it’ll be available online. I think once it was online (that I can recall), but their last box was only in stores. The Beauty Awards Box usually comes out in July. I can’t wait to see what’s in it!

          • Cb – oooh, the anticipation! I can’t wait to see what’s in it 🙂

          • I just saw the Beauty Box at Dillards. I didn’t get to take a good look at it because I was shopping with my son for Prom and we were out of time, but there was the Moschino Bear perfume sample (cute, cute, cute!) and it looks like a Bobbi Brown lipstick, as well as a whole bunch of other things. I am going to pick it up today and will send to Liz to see if she wants to post!

      • I had heard that they release a Beauty Report box whenever they can get enough promotional items together to release a box, so not necessarily every season, but I’ve been waiting for the next one since the last one, too – it’s the only box I’m still getting after having binged subscription boxes in previous years.

        • Oh, that’s good to know. For the past two years (maybe three? I can’t recall when their first box was) they’ve been consistent in releasing the Spring & Fall boxes during the same months (I think that’s why we’re all on pins & needles waiting for spoilers! lol), however a lack of promotional items this year could explain why they’re late this time 🙁

      • Hilarious, I was just combing the NB site yesterday trying to see about the next BR box. I just hope no more duplicate SiO, and brown Grande lips.

        • Or more ScarAway? Lol

  27. What an amazing deal!!!!!
    I just ordered it!!!!

  28. This is my favorite sub box. I love skin care products!!! Loved last months and can’t wait to try Mays!! Thank you for the spoilers Liz! 😄

  29. Well I was sad to miss the last one and really do not see anything in this one that I really want. That is how I missed March.. was not expecting to really want it!!

  30. Can’t wait! Looks like some nice things to try!

  31. Looking up the items online, some are great if full size. The MMXV on Amazon was surprising. If anyone has found that elsewhere let me know I wonder if it is correct.

    Nyakio eye cream – $39 .5 oz Ulta
    JKosmmune lotion – $32 1.7 oz Site
    MMXV Facial Treatment – $225 1 oz Amazon
    Grande Primer. – $25. Sephora
    Derma e Vit. C Peel. – $23.95 2oz. Ulta

    • The MMXV and Shea butter are the only ones that are not full size. But a sample size of the MMXV could be $50-100 if it’s .25 or .5 oz.

  32. Grande-anything is a big turnoff for me, and will almost always keep me from subbing. I don’t like anything I’ve tried and I just don’t want anything that I’ll end up tossing. It’s one of those things that I dislike sooo much that I wouldn’t even give it to someone else to use because I’ll feel guilty about giving it to them.

    • I feel exactly the same way! It’s like you wrote out what I was thinking!

    • The grande lipgloss from the last tube was awesome but it’s the only item I have liked from the brand. However, the $85 full size Sunday Riley and $29 full size shower gel plus a bunch of other stuff made it a great tube!

  33. Hhmmm…interesting. Several products I’ve never even heard of! Love trying new products and have never subscribed to this box before so the novelty factor is really pulling me in on this one. Darn you NewBeauty TestTube!!! I didn’t want to want you! 😍

  34. Eh, I might have to pass. Nothing compared to last month’s Sunday Riley showstopper.

    Can I just say, OMG, that serum is amazing!!! My skin looks incredible.

  35. If that MMXV facial treatment is full size, that alone is $225! I was skeptical when I first saw these spoilers but now that I research it may not be so bad…

    • I think it might be a sample size. Maybe 15ml? The full size is 1oz, and compared to the Derma E (which I’m sure is the full 2oz size), it looks to be less than half that. Although, I’d love it if I were wrong!

    • Their website is showing it as a 5ml sample valued at $37.50.

    • It’s not full size, the box value is 207 look at the bottom of their home page.

    • If you check out the New Beauty website, it lists the overall value as $207. The MMXV and Shea Terre are travel sized. Still a great value overall.

    • It says on their website that this box is worth $150

      • They promise $150+ for every box. This one is valued at $207 if you go to checkout. Hope that helps 🙂

  36. should we have gotten our march/april by now??? i was “lucky” enough to get it before it sold out but they told me they’re delaying mailing it to me because of low stock. if they don’t have many, shouldn’t they be able to get them out quicker?? makes no sense & i feel like they’re just giving me the run around before they tell me i’m sh*t out of luck at the very last minute, hoping i’ll pay for another round in may. has anyone received theirs yet???

    • Wow….I got mine March 1st or very near that date. I hope you get yours soon 😊 it’s definitely worth the wait though. I’m enjoying everything in it except for the body wash and that’s because my other half claimed it and used it all up on me lol

      • jill, you’re lucky. i’m jealous.

    • I’m still waiting for my box too — they did email me to say it was delayed and that I would get a bonus product, but no box or shipping notice yet.

      • lauren, i just looked & i got that email too. hope they follow through.

    • I got mine on March 4th. If they are keeping you updated I wouldn’t worry too much. I’m sure it’ll get to you soon

      • nina, yeah, it’s just hard not to feel like they obviously oversold their actual inventory. & seeing that others got theirs a full month ago doesn’t feel very reassuring that they still have anything left to ship.

    • I think someone said that customer service told them they were waiting on a shipment of one of the products right around the time they sold out. I’ve been signed up since the previous box (Jan/Feb) so I got mine the first week of March. I don’t remember getting my Jan/Feb very late but that box never sold out. Maybe shoot them an email or call them to check again?

    • I’m still waiting for mine also. I canceled my auto-renewing membership literally an hour ago in order to avoid being charged for May’s Tube (they charge you for it on April 10th). At first it looked like they cancelled my March tube also and I just got off the chat with a C.S. Rep and she assured me that I would still be receiving the March Tube. I didn’t get a ship date on that though.

      • thank You so much for letting me know they’re going to charge again on the 10th!!! i was holding out on canceling until i got my box just to make extra sure they didn’t sacrifice my march for someone more “deserving” (current subscribers). but i def don’t want to get charged again.

        • You’re welcome! If you do cancel, you will still receive the March Tube. That was my main concern too.

        • I just talked again with a rep, and the holdup with the March Tube is because they’re waiting on one product’s restock shipment. I was told again that the hope is for our tubes to start shipping out by Friday, and we will be getting a bonus item for the inconvenience.

    • Still waiting too. I called a few days ago and they said they ship out on Friday’s, that they were out of stock and had to order more to fill the remaining boxes. He said they should ship today, but may be next Friday.

      • Tomorrow, IDK why I was thinking today was Friday. Been a long week. Hopefully we get tracking emails tomorrow.

      • thank you for the info!

    • I just emailed them (again today) about March. They keep saying one more week. Today they said they hope to receive the out of stock items by Monday and are hoping to mail them out soon. I’m annoyed.

      • melissa, they told wendy they ship on fridays. so together with your info about monday, they should hopefully ship out friday (12th). that bonus product they promised better be really cool ;P

    • Yeah I got my March/April one like the first week of March. I was really impressed. I love this box.

    • Laci, I JUST received a tracking number!!! Check your email!

      • i got one too =)!!!

        • Did your box get to you yet? Mines been stuck in Las Vegas for three days with no further movement. Frustrating!

          • yes, i got it earlier this week. it was a complete surprise because my tracking was in limbo the entire time (“Your package is on its way to a USPS facility. Sign up to get updates, and we’ll send you a delivery date and time when available.”) i signed up for updates & received not a single one. it still says it’s waiting to be mailed. so maybe yours is closer than it appears.

  37. Darn I missed out on the last one and wanted so badly to get the next months but I’m not liking this one at all what a bummer but saving me some money though haha

  38. Excited for the Vitamin C Peel 🙂

  39. Does anyone know if all of these items are full-size, or if they’re mostly sampler size this time? Also, anyone else having trouble signing up with the 30% off link?

    • Where is the 30% off link?!? Most are full size.

  40. Great box!

  41. Love this tube!

  42. Wow! Spoilers came out early! Looks great 🤗

  43. Also, the tube is super pretty this month! They are one of my favorite packaging!

  44. Wow, haven’t heard of any of these products, but that’s what I love about this box and most sub boxes, really–trying new things I would never discover otherwise! The Derma E and the Scalp protector especially intrigue me!

    • Those are the two things that excited me most too. The hair tonic was an almost eureka moment because I have pale skin and I hate getting sunburn in the part of my hair (and then the dandruffy peeling for weeks) but my hair is also greasy so I’m not going to spray sunblock on my head! But I have sooooo much product waiting to be used and I really should save money after all I spent on the Ulta sale. So I think I’m canceling for now.

    • I also love the discovery factor! I know every Test Tube will include several products or brands I’ve never tried before.

  45. Hmmm nothing in this month excites me. I may have to pass this time.

    • Same.

      Also, this looks scant.

    • Do you know if it’s easy to skip or do we have to cancel?

      • You have to cancel.

        • Ok thank you

          • I just called and they said I could skip next month. Give them a call to skip.

        • They let me skip

    • Not as exciting as the previous month but I won’t skip. Since most of these brands I’ve never tried, I like the discovery factor too.
