  1. This comment is purely on the off chance that one of New Beauty’s employees is on here (as they sometimes are). I need some help please.

    I am not sure what has happened to this company but I am literally DUMBFOUNDED by the customer service they are using now. I still don’t have my box (the event is tonight), I have no tracking number or email (because they have not shipped my box) and I have been on the phone since Monday (I’ve sent 6 emails as well, also starting on Monday and have had ZERO response to ANY OF THEM) trying to get a status or a refund. I just got off the phone again (30 minutes this time) and not only will they not help me, there is no other way to get in touch with any one. They claim they can’t pass me on to anyone else. Y’all it is insane. I have my confirmation email from the company that I paid for the box. I have an order number for reference.

    I’ve had the CS people literally pick up the phone and hang up on me or talk to me like I am an idiot. Please know I am aware this sounds crazy and made up and if I was reading someone else’s comments on here and they were making these claims I would probably think they were exaggerating. It’s that wild. And before anyone goes there, no I am not being a Karen, I am being extremely kind and patient with the CS people and not taking my frustration out on them at all which makes it all the more unbelievable that TEST TUBE and NEW BEAUTY are okay with this customer service. I have been a Test Tube subscriber for a really long time and this is my 4th VIP Box purchase and I have never had any issues.

    I feel like I have stepped into some kind of Twilight Zone/Candid Camera situation with their new customer service. Like I cannot believe it is real it is so incredibly awful. I almost feel like maybe some scam company has hijacked their CS phone number and is pretending to represent the company or something. There is NO WAY a real company would tolerate this. Anyway , I apologize for the rant but I’m at my wits end here and don’t know what else to do. I don’t have Facebook or Instagram so those are not an option for me.

    So, if you are on here NEW BEAUTY/Test Tube REP, I’d love some help! And please, whatever you do, don’t give me the same CS number and email you usually post in the comments and say you’d love to help and for me to please reach out because I’ve been doing that for the last 3 days. Thanks!

    • @JoJoB – I’m so sorry you’re having these CS issues! It’s inexcusable to pay that much for a product and then not receive it nor any info. about when you will. In the past, NBTT has been great to deal with, but I have also recently noticed a decline. A “Free Friday” product arrived damaged/leaking (The SR Fairy Godmother lotion) and I get that it’s “free” technically, but it was still $9.98 shipping, so not really free. Three weeks and no response. Hopefully they will resolve your questions soon.

  2. I thought it was strange to recive a Sunday Riley Good Genes glycolic acid in this awards box as it is not listed in their brochure (although I believe it was named in 2020 awards?) Regardless, I gifted mine to someone else because I already have a peeling product I use that I’m happy with. She’s now telling me it has an expiration date of 2012 on the bottom??!! I feel bad for not realizing that before I sent it although in my experience they usually just print batch codes, not actual expiration dates unless it’s something that has SPF. She couldn’t manage to take a photo to show me the numbers, but is sending it back to me so I can return if needed. Just wondering if anyone else thinks they may have an expired product?

    • If it works like the other batch codes I’ve seen, it likely actually said 20l2 (L, not 1), and indicated that it was manufactured in Dec 2020

      • Thanks Wendy, that helps and totally makes sense. I’m not even sure that SR was making the Good Genes glycolic acid in 2012. They need to be more clear about batch codes versus expiration dates. I didn’t want to think NewBeauty was sending out expirated product!

    • Sunday Riley wasn’t around in 2012 neither was their glycolic acid for sure. So the code means something else if that helps. 😊

  3. For $111 for 29 items that is AMAZING!!! I might not use all the items, but they are perfect to give to family and friends or sell and make some money back 🙂

  4. I got mine yesterday, am I the only one disappointed in it?

    • Mine hasn’t arrived yet but I saw spoilers. I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed but I would have appreciated more variety. That being said, it is worth the $111.

  5. I got my box today!!! I think it was worth it. Did anyone else get theirs?

    • Mine was supposed to arrive today but fed ex changed the shipping date from today to pending….hope it makes it here. Anyway …How about a few spoilers from those that got theirs .

      • The same thing happened to me. I found full spoilers on line. It’s on Reddit.

      • The spoilers are also on another sub review site.

      • My tracking hasn’t updated since Thursday when it was “in transit” from Oklahoma City to Dallas. It can’t possibly take 5 days to travel that distance unless maybe it’s by wagon train? No one at FedEx has any idea where it actually is right now.

      • My box is on a wagon train on Pennsylvania 😛 It’s been to three different towns in PA since Friday.

  6. Mine arrived today and it had tons of great products in it. My daughter-in-law and I had a great time divvying it up. Well worth the price tag!

    • Can you post what was in the box?

      • There are full spoilers online.

  7. Looks like it is sold out.

  8. I got the shipping email this morning. Can’t wait 🙂

    • Me too! Expected delivery is tomorrow via FedEx.

      • Mine isn’t scheduled for delivery until Saturday 🙁

      • Received today – just over 11 lbs.! I opened the outer box expecting the usual black box with the band that says ‘don’t open until…’ but found an $85 kit that couldn’t fit in the main box. 😄

    • Me too, but mine was already on the way. I have the FedEx app installed. It should arrive tomorrow. Can’t wait!

      • Got mine and overall I’m pretty pleased with it!

  9. They released the winners. I can’t wait to see what is in the box. I kind of want the Fenty moisturizer with sunscreen.
    Anyone else have a wish list?

    • I glanced at the NewBeauty Awards issue; haven’t had time to thoroughly peruse, but I definitely plan on comparing that list to the items in the April VIP box – can’t wait! The Feb. box was completely amazing! 😉 Meanwhile, is anyone else itching to use a makeup wipe on that model’s overly-highlighted face in the promo pic?!

      • LOL. That is so funny. Every time I look at that picture, I think she just looks sweaty and needs a rinse.

  10. They sell out for sure. If you are interested I would grab it now. If/when New Beauty lowers the price they are gone before you can get to the site and enter your info to purchase.

    I’ve subbed to this box since it was only offered on HSN. This is the first VIP/award winner box I’ve gotten because I’ve always brushed it off thinking I’d purchase it at a later date. Nope….sold out.

  11. Now I want this, but $159..I will have to wait and see if they offer a discount the night of.

  12. Vivian – I watched on zoom and went to their FB page separately. We asked questions or comments there and quickly received responses from NB. This LIVE event was more fun being on FB at the same time.

  13. Still trying to decide whether to buy it… the products from previous boxes look great, but without spoilers I just don’t know whether I’ll be allergic to the products which makes it risky. Maybe it’s just FOMO that makes me want to buy it.

  14. I bought / received the February box. I think it had great value in terms of the retail price of the items vs. what I paid. (I got it for $99 though) I just didn’t care about the products so much. I think there was an enough mix
    of items but the supplements turned me off. At least I found a friend that uses them so they won’t go to waste.

    I rather pay a 3 month $137 deal of other sub vs this box. However, I do think that getting this box is better to getting 3 boxes of “deluxe samples” every month. Werent samples supposed to be free anyways?

  15. Hi everyone. I don’t have anything to contribute about this box. I expected to see Luna posting about it and see she hasn’t. Also, I notice now I haven’t read any posts from her lately. Anyone out there in touch with her and know that she’s ok?

    • I believe work is keeping her busy.

    • I’m here! 😀 Kristin’s right… work has been kicking my booty since mid-January, lol. It should (finally!) die down for me in a few weeks. I still check MSA regularly, usually right before bed, but am usually too tired too comment on anything, lol. Plus, I’ve been so behind on checking my personal emails, so I haven’t been running into new deals/boxes like I used to 🙁 … however, a couple I did see tonight is that Lookfantastic will be coming out with a new LE box on 3/1; the sign up list is on their website (toggle over Beauty Box then select Limited Edition). Also Liberty has a new beauty kit called Five Minutes’ Peace Beauty Kit. (cute name 🙂 )

      • Glad to hear from you

  16. I hope this doesn’t mean they’re doing away with the regular NewBeauty rewards boxes.

  17. Gurl… $159? And no spoilers. Not in this economy. 😬I miss the New Beauty Beauty Report boxes they would send out seasonally a few years back. Please bring the beauty report boxes back! 😢Those were great and affordable.

  18. Go back to $111 and I’ll buy it

  19. I got the Feb VIP box and here are the items:

    SKINMEDICA TNS Advanced+ Serum (1 oz) – $295
    ◇ HUSH & HUSH Mind Your Mind (60 capsules) – $55
    ◇ WELLA PROFESSIONALS Nutricurls Cleansing Conditioner for Waves & Curls (250 ml) – $22
    ◇ AVÈNE Cleanance Concentrate Blemish Control Serum (1 oz) – $28
    ◇ NU SKIN Nutricentials Here You Glow Exfoliating Toner (150 ml) – $21.87

    (List from WYGO Warrior on Youtube)

    Items vary as I saw other people getting more things in their boxes. I also attended their live broadcast. They did a really great job for their vendors but was unimpressed by what they had to offer their actual customers.

    • Very good breakdown but items actually don’t vary. Everyone gets the same. Looks like you are missing the shaper hairspray and the nail stuff. They said some people will be getting those separately. I am missing those items too but they are already on their way. I normally don’t go for total mystery boxes but these have proved to be amazing and way better value than any other box out there! I got the November and February and already preordered the April. Can’t wait!!

      • Thanks for that. I just thought I was t getting the other two items. I tried to ask questions during the live stream but wasn’t able to. I love the eyelash items and the sleeping pills but not really excited about others in the box.

    • Thanks so much! I received the 2.0 instead of 3.5 RevitaLash Eye serum. Does anyone have any experience with the skin Medica TNS advanced serum?

      • The TNS is a cult favorite. People absolutely go bananas for it!

    • If they haven’t emailed you or about the items or don’t see anything in FedEx tracking just contact them. They usually have excellent customer service.

    • The eyelash I thought was only worth $100 as it is the 3 months instead of the 6 months.

  20. Ridiculous

  21. I would love if MSA would review the February VIP box.
    Unless you watch the webinar there is very no information in the box to correspond to the items.It would also be great to get a price breakdown. Thanks

  22. I buy these every time they come out. Immediately after the live event they tweet a link for the next box which is discounted for several hours. This box is a special box curated from award winning items so I am especially looking forward to what we will receive in April. There are never any spoilers. Generally, all are full size items and the most expensive item in February’s box is a newly released serum that retails for $295. Most items are in the $50-$100 range.

    • Do you remember how much the discount for the next box usually is?

      • nvm just saw your comment below. Thanks for all the great info!

  23. My pockets are not that deep.

  24. I can’t imagine spending that much on a box sight unseen…

  25. This is my fourth box from them and it is expected to be the best one yet. They send full-size products from higher end brands so the value is there. One of the items in our box this month retails for $295. Several others were in the $75-$100 value. One of my favorite items which happened to be one of the cheapest, is my favorite lip balm from Lab to Beauty that I normally buy from Saks that retails for $30.

    You order the box in advance end it arrives usually the day before the event, this time mine arrived two days before. The shipping is quite impressive. At the live Event the owners or reps of the companies are interviewed regarding the items in the box. Immediately after the event they text a link to purchase the next box and the box is discounted for a few hours, possibly a day, before it goes up to the price that you are seeing here. In the past, the discounted price was $99 but this one has increased to $111 because it is a special box curated from award winning products. Would I buy it at $159? Possibly. At $111, I snapped it up immediately. There are no spoilers, there are never spoilers. The surprise is part of the fun. This is a box full of full-size higher end beauty and skin items – not samples.

    • Hi, I want to see how did you get in for $111? I’ve tried to sub to their email notifications or text alerts but never got anything?

      • The link to purchase was texted to people attending the the New Beauty Live event. They send it shortly after the live event ends. They sell a limited number at the introductory price.
        You need to sign up for the New Beauty BeautyPass program to participate in the live event. It is separate from the regular NB box. You also will also occasionally get special offers via text where NB offers high value items for the cost of shipping – usually $8.95
        I’m not sure where to sign up. I would email NB customer service

  26. Are there any spoilers for these boxes? I get the Testtube and I’ve been happy with it but $160 is alot to spend when you have no idea what your getting. High value items are great if you have a use for them. But if it’s not something you would use, it becomes a high value dust collector.

  27. $159? For those who have bought this before, some examples of what could make it worth that much? Because I have unsubbed from NewBeauty TestTube at least 4 times.

    • I bought the last one and the hero product was SkinMedica TNS Advanced Serum, worth $295. Lots of other great products too. I will continue to buy these boxes.

  28. I snapped this one up right away. I’ve gotten the last three boxes and they have all been worth it. Even if you don’t love everything, there is still enough value. I’ve canceled all of my other beauty boxes since I get so much in these. I’m optimistic the April box will be great since it the awards box. 🤞

    • I cancelled all my others and will try to grab this one quarterly! The last one was incredible. These are brads I would never buy on my own, but feel like I get to pamper myself for sure.

  29. This box is always a great value, totally worth the $159!

  30. I have gotten a couple of these vip boxes and I bought this one too… the products are fantastic and the value has been incredible! Full of high end skincare and beauty products.

  31. I love this box, but $159! Scary high price…

    • I agree! Maybe towards the end of “last chance to purchasel will be $99! I’ll then purchase.

      • This box started at $111 this time.

      • I was able to snag one for $111 the night of the last event. If it is anything like the last box it will be worth it for sure.

      • Do you all know if they always do the last chance at the reduced $99 price or in this case would be $111?

        I am scared of holding out for the $111 price and then they become sold out and I lose out all together on this box.

        Your experience and advice would be appreciated thank you
