  1. Collagen powder works and has helped my hair so much! I buy the grass fed version in the big blue tub from Costco. Its like $30 or $35 and will last months if u use one scoop per day. My hair was falling out so badly and this really help.

  2. Got my box this morning – what a treat! I’m excited to see if I will see any results on a couple old acne scars I have with the ‘Scar-away’ product. I’ve used Neocell in the past and loved that (really saw a difference in my nails after a couple weeks). Tried the nail-polish…unfortunately I got the blue shade, which just doesn’t work for me. Needed a primer and on the last of my facial oil, so happy to receive those in the tube. Thank you Test-Tube!!!

    • Amy,
      Thanks for sharing with us and the community 😊We’re so glad you liked the May TestTube 💛

  3. My box just arrived yesterday. Originally I thought I wouldn’t be able to use the nail polish but the color looks so nice. Looking forward in using the collagen powder.

    • Sorry for posting twice… yikes…

    • Hi Vivian,
      Thank you for taking the time to leave a nice comment ☺️ We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear we hit the mark for you.

  4. I just got mine and so happy with everything. Originally I thought I wouldn’t be able to use the nail polish but the color looks so nice. Super happy with the box!!!!!

  5. my box was delivered yesterday. gotta say, it’s a great one!!! the collagen is HUGE, the nail polish is a really pretty spring/summer shade (the pastel blue in photo), the primer went on nicely (tried it on hand). didn’t get to try the skin products yet, aside from one of the masks. really happy with this tube!

    • I agree! Super-great box.

  6. I’m super excited about this box– this was my first sub (besides meal kits) as a gift from my sister, and aside from last box, I’ve been very pleased by the quality and variety of products. I drink smoothies with collagen every day, and I have some scars that need some work, so I’m excited for those products– and I’ve been wanting to try the Orly for a while now. Plus I can always use a serum. The one thing I can’t use is the Dr. Brandt, unfortunately, because I’m allergic to Tea Tree, but I’ll gift it, I guess. All in all, I’m impressed with this box. Can’t wait!

    • Thanks for the kind words Carrie!
      We’re happy that you were able to find so much value within this TestTube 💛

  7. To each their own! I received my box today and was so thrilled with the contents. I’m a vegetarian and so I won’t use the Neocell but my sister or friends will be thrilled to get a GIANT TUB of collagen. I have never seen such a large tub before in a beauty subscription and by a reputable brand. I use the fish kind of collagen and I believe it really works to minimize wrinkles. I had surgery a few months ago and I am excited about the ScarAway. I love all sheet masks and have never seen this multistep brand before, I like the smell of the leave in conditioner and I can always use serums I go through them like crazy. I use serums and moisturizers all the way from my forehead to breasts and then my hands. New Beauty always sends things unique and scientific. I really love this sub.

    • Allison,

      We’re thrilled that you loved all of the products included in this TestTube ☺️ We put customer experience and satisfaction as out priority, and your comment reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words!

  8. I am so disappointed to see Dr Brandt, Neocell and ScarAway brands. Seems like groundhog day. I will not be renewing my subscription. And this is the only box I am receiving…So it’s not like I have tons of products…TestTube can do better…

    • As someone who has a foot long scar going down my abdomen, I am looking forward to using the scar gel. I used to use silicone strips on my scar, but then my insurance stopped covering them. I know that New Beauty has featured the brand before, but I think this is a different product from the brand. Of course, if you don’t have giant scars, I can see how this product would be a total waste.
      I don’t think I will use the Collagen, but I do like Dr. Brandt.
      I hope that you find a few items you like in the tube. I’m a lot happier with the current tube than I was with the last 2. I’m looking forward to using the serum from a new brand.

    • MD,

      We’re sorry we failed to meet your expectations with this TestTube. We truly hope to earn your business back in the future.

  9. Definitely agree. The last one was horrible and stunk so badly from those bath bombs. I could smell it before I even opened the box

  10. Honestly I kinda like this box. The scaraway is interesting to me, mostly because I have a few hypertrophic (keloid??) scars on my chest that even after 2 steroid injections still persist.

    • Hi Kathy,
      We can’t wait until you receive your TestTube 😁 ScarAway is known to visibly improve the appearance of both old and new scars!

    • Not sure if Scaraway will help with keloid scars but I have used it in surgery scars and gotten some results. Nothing will make them go away but they did help minimize them. The gel is great for helping newer scars though.

    • I am 69 years old and have very fair skin. All of my surgery scars formed keloids. I’ve used ScarAway and it worked well, even on the old ones. Wish I’d had it when I was younger!

  11. I just purchased the April Laurel & Reed box (found a 20% off code if you want it, too — NEW20). At this point, I’m for quality over quantity. As much as there are four items in there that I wouldn’t mind using out of the eight available, I know for sure that Dr. Brandt is not a cruelty-free brand (I didn’t bother looking at the others for that same reason, sorry), one would think that with so many nice and up-and-coming indie brands that are cruelty-free with wonderful ingredients, why aren’t more boxes considering this? I ponder this and then just say to myself: “Hey, I’ll just pick out the box/items that I want and see what the next NBTT offers.” I hope the following one is amazing. I may check eBay later on for a couple of the items, though. To give NBTT credit, it is nice that most are full size in this tube now. Hope everyone who buys it enjoys it! 🙂

  12. has anyone been billed yet, or does anyone know when we are billed? ty

    • I contacted them last week and they said they changed the billing date to 4/30, which means we’ll likely be charged tomorrow.

      • thank you so much joan for the reply!

      • Yes, that is correct! All valued subscribers will be billed for the May TestTube on 4/30 😊

  13. I think it’s a great box. It’s a mixture of things I’m happy about and things that will push me out of my comfort zone to explore. That why I joined this sub and I’m glad they are getting back to their roots and did this one up well.

    • Laurie,
      We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority. Your comment reaffirms the hard work we put in every day so thank you for your kind works ☺️

  14. Love it all! Can’t wait

  15. I just signed up yay! I’m most excited for the NeoCell Collagen Protein Peptides and the Le Mieux Hyaluronic Serum. Thanks Liz!

  16. Definitely headed back in the right direction after taking a detour for the first part of the year, but still not enough to pull me all the way back in. Maybe next tube will be the one!

  17. Very well rounded. Somethings are interesting, but most I want to try! Yeah!!

  18. Well it’s about time! Last 3 boxes were awful so I finally cancelled my second sub, then of course they immediately improve. Murphy’s Law….. At least I’ll have the one.

    • Yes i definitely agree with you! I have been a subscriber for many years now and the last few boxes were so horrible I am debating whether or not to keep this subscription.
      Even this one doesn’t compare to the ones of last year/years before. I am hoping they will start getting better.

      I thought I saw another subscription from the same company or similar company from New Beauty.

      • Back in the day (for sub boxes…. like 3 or 4 years ago), New Beauty did have another subscription box called Beauty DNA. That one was different though in that they would send a single full-sized product based on an extensive survey the subscriber filled out. Or, maybe you’re thinking of the one-time boxes from Beauty Report, which is also part of New Beauty?

      • Yes, even this “good” one isn’t as good as they used to be.
        Seems like they haven’t had Beauty report in quite a while. I liked it and wish they’d bring it back.
        Beauty DNA wasn’t worth it to me value wise, so I cancelled that one after 3 months.

  19. The first two boxes of the year (January and March) were not that good,this is a nice improvement,looking forward to the box this time.

    • Thank you, we can’t wait to hear your feedback for this month’s tube 😁

  20. this looks like a really nice box, i’m excited to get mine!

  21. I think I am going have to resub. I don’t use nail polish and the scar away is really not useful for me but can’t wait to try that fancy toothpaste at $25. I love that they have a protein peptide included in this.

  22. Nice ! First time I’ve seen Le Mieux in a box great brand ! Looks like a great box !

    • It does look good!

  23. Oh hooray! This is a marked improvement from the past few tubes. I’m definitely considering resubscribing!

  24. OH I skipped last Test Tube and from MSA I went to my account they did not automatically charge my account yet so I had to click the little box with numbers under address and payment and it says order number.
    Just encase I would check Test Tube make sure you have it ordered if you really want it.

  25. I am confused when I got my New Beauty mag it showed Test Tube and none of these products were in the tube had way better items just a little misleading
    The mag has 2 parts and since it was the awards New Beauty edition on the other half of the mag there are so many better products Test Tube could include.
    New Beauty awards boxes should of came out already it usually came out the 2/3rd week of April so that is behind also.
    I skipped last Tube so I am gonna for sure get this 1 and I will try almost all the products looking forward to it.

    • I was just thinking it was time for the New Beauty awards box! Hopefully it comes out soon despite the current crises. It would be a nice diversion ☺ (at least to me)

      • I am waiting the Awards box also and have been keeping a eye on my email so I can get 1 before they sell out I do remember them coming out around the 16th of April I hope someone might be more positive of when they do come out.

  26. This sub never fails to impress me. The value ratio is high every time and the products are always gift worthy. Even if I personally don’t want or need every item it’s an awesome sub to get. This particular tube looks great. I don’t care for that primer, it makes me shiny, though I love Dr. B’s anti aging line. Orly polish is my absolute favorite! Every item in this box will make someone I know happy so I have zero complaints. A+ 👍🏻🙂

    • We’re glad you love the items included 💜

  27. Definitely an improvement over the last tube but not enough for me to resubscribe. NBTT used to be luxe. Half of this stuff feels drugstore.

  28. I’ve gotten that Dr. Brandt primer before and my sensitive skin haaaaaaated it. My skin wouldn’t get really hot, red and I would have little bumps that would show through my makeup. So if you are sensitive be wary

    • That Dr. Brandt made my face burn after ten minutes. It’s not for sensitive skin.

  29. If the swap site was open I’d be more inclined to order as there are only a couple items I really want.

    • I haven’t been on in a bit. Is the swap portion of the site gone? Why?

      • It was closed temporarily due to Covid-19

    • What is the swap site? I’ve been getting NBTT for about a year and hadn’t heard of this before.

  30. I have rarely been disappointed in the Test Tube. This one is no exception. I can usually find a few items that make it worth it, and if not they make great gifts which is still worth it!

  31. I’m interested in about four of the eight products (most specifically the serum), so not sure if I’ll splurge on this yet. I might wait for some the more luxe boxes I typically hold out for. But… this is an improvement from the last TestTube, for sure!

  32. Not for me, I agree it’s an improvement over the previous two tubes. Nice variety of products. I just don’t use supplements and dislike Dr. Brandt products. The serum looks nice.

  33. LOVE it! Can’t wait. I’ve used Neocell products in the past and saw great results.

  34. I wish they stopped it with the ScarAway already – like really, how many times are we going to receive that from New Beauty? – but otherwise a nice box. Yes, definitely a big improvement over the previous boxes this year.

  35. I won’t use the Dr Brandt or the neocell. I’ll try the serum and leave-in. Can’t wait for swaps to open.

    • Is there a swap option? I’ve been getting this sub for about a year and hadn’t heard this before

      • I swap on MSA, but it is currently paused for the pandemic. I love it. I don’t use supplements but I love to swap things like that to someone who will use it.

  36. I absolutely love it! TT again managed to get so different variety covering face, nails, hair, etc.

  37. Dang so many repeats for me… I usually love this sub!

  38. I’m not impressed, but in my opinion, it’s definitely an improvement over the last tube.

    • Definitely agree…. I’m only interested in about half of the products and I know the other half wouldn’t be used. I am glad that it is an improvement over the last couple of tubes, though!
