Mailbox Monday: New Beauty Test Tube Summer 2012

Date posted: August 20, 2012 | By:

As you know, I looooove my monthly beauty boxes! And at the top of my list is New Beauty Test Tube.

New Beauty Test Tube is the beauty brainchild of the editors of New Beauty magazine. New Beauty, is the monthly beauty bible for all of us who need to know about the best, brightest and newest beauty finds.

So who better to order a beauty box from? That was my thinking.

New Beauty’s Test Tube Summer 2012 is AMAZING!

It’s always the one box where I know I can expect products that work from the best brands. Kind of like the best goodie bag you could hope to get at a party or event. Except filled with only the best of the best beauty products.

So what’s a Test Tube? It’s a cylinder filled with discriminating products aimed to delight! And at only $29.95 for a quarterly delivery (once every 3 months), it is clearly a “new beauty” itself!
