Mailbox Monday: New Beauty Test Tube

Date posted: April 30, 2012 | By:

Merry Monday, beauties!

Whew! What a weekend!

Today, I have another beauty box for y’all!

Some of you may be familiar with New Beauty magazine. For those of you who aren’t, 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 is AMAZING!

It was the one box I’ve received where I loved EVERYTHING in the box! 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!

Touted as the “ultimate product sampling” program, New Beauty Test Tube delivers the goods. In this box, I found products that made me smile and squeal with glee:

MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine ($26)

Dr.Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion ($60)

Hydroxatone 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer & Instant Wrinkle Filler ($79.95 each)

Kerstin Florian Krauter Feet & Leg Balm ($32)

Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector ($17)

LashFood ($95)

Kneipp Herbal Bath ($19)

Ahava Extreme Day Cream ($68) & Essential Daily Moisturizer ($38.50)

Also helpful? A detailed full-size booklet that tells you all about the products – much more detailed that most.

So have I discovered one thing I simply can’t live without thanks to this program?

I’ve found 3 products that I can’t live without! And I still haven’t tried everything in “the tube”.

So far, I am madly in love with:

* the Kneipp herbal bath (having bought 2 additional Valerian & Hops herbal baths and a Kneipp herbal bath sampler for my mom since initially trying)

* LashFood! As a devotee of Latisse, I found LashFood to be extremely effective. I only used it for a few weeks but I found that my Latisse results continued with its usage and my lashes actually began to naturally curl which has never happened!

*MoroccanOil. Fun! Shimmery! Luminous! These are a few of the words that come to mind when thinking of this product

And I will try more as the weeks move on.

But what is one recommendation I feel compelled to make?


Whatcha’ waitin’ for?
Treat yourself, you gorgeous thing!
