You may or may not remember my NewBeauty TestTube that I posted about in the middle of January and that I was cancelling it. Well, shortly after, the QVC version became available and I jumped right on it. This one seems to offer more make up than the original TestTube and that is what I was looking for. I am super excited to be getting this version now!! It comes out quarterly like the normal TT as well!!
The NewBeauty TestTube is a collection of some of the hottest and most in-demand products in beauty. In this tube, you'll receive the January issue of NewBeauty magazine, along with a mix of full-sized, travel-sized, and deluxe-sized samples from Mally, tarte, Kate Somerville, philosophy, Calista Tools, and more. And, with this auto-delivery plan, you'll stay on the cutting edge with three more shipments of new top-of-the-line products--one each in April 2012, August 2012, and October 2012.Here is what I got in my box:
The NewBeauty TestTube combines luxurious beauty products with extensive product and how-to information. NewBeauty magazine, included in the test tube, provides insider information on trends and hot topics within the beauty world via respected experts from the beauty industry.
Lets go through each individual item:
Mally Volumizing Mascara - $20.00
I am a mascara fiend and I have heard great things about Mally so I can't wait to try this. Even with just this mascara, this TestTube is almost already worth it.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream - $12.00
I was my hands A LOT and they're always super dry because of it. I am always on the look out for awesome hand creams so I am excited to try this. It says it hydrates dry, parched skin! It is a little expensive for the price, but if it works miracles, I don't mind spending so much since I haven't really found anything that lasts long enough.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate - $19.00
This stuff is EXPENSIVE. The little tube I got (.5 Fl. Oz) is $19. I have heard awesome things about this and I have been thinking about purchasing it so getting it was pretty cool. I am not much into skin care but I think my husband might like this, hes a sucker for new face things!
Philosophy Field of Flowers Shower Gel & Body Lotion - $2.50
I have only tried Philosophy twice I believe and was never really impressed. I do love bubble baths though so this is a nice little one time use sample! The body lotion will be kept for the February giveaway! Not too crazy about the smell though.
Calista Tools Achieve 10 Styling Cream - $10.50
I don't like putting things in my hair, I don't like the feeling of it so I won't be using this. I am going to keep this for the February giveaway!
Olehenriksen Truth Serum Booster - $24.00
This is supposed to nourish and protect your skin, fighting off environmental aggressors and is loaded with antioxidants. Not really my thing, I might keep it or give it to my mom!
Traditions by Nick Chavez Yucca Root Shampooing Cream - $5.00
I am not one to spend crazy amounts on shampoo/conditioner or buy expensive brands when it comes to my hair, but I can't wait to try this. I have never even heard of it before!
Tarte Aqua-Gel Eye Liner in Teal - $18.00
I have recently become a huge fan of Tarte and this is the most exciting thing in the whole TestTube. The color is gorgeous and I can't wait to test it out!!The breakdown:
Box: QVC NewBeauty Test Tube January-March (First Quarter) 2012
Price: $29.96 every 3 months (not including shipping)
Monetary Value: $111.00
Keeping subscription?: Yes.
I love this one SO much better than the regular TestTube. As of right now, its still available, I would say pick it up! I can't wait to try all these items!
