NewBeauty Test Tube March/April 2014 Review

Disclosure: No compensation was given for this review/giveaway. I did receive a free product from the manufacturer or their representing PR agency to use and test for the purposes of this review. This is disclosed in accordance with the FTC guidelines. All opinions are my own. Please see “Disclose” tab for more information.

I just received my first NewBeauty Test Tube. TestTube is a subscription sampling program that gives members an opportunity to try a variety of some of the newest beauty products. This is great because you get to try them before investing. The also encourage you to then share your feedback about the products.


You will get a NewBeauty Test Tube six times a year, for just $29.95 (plus shipping and handling). One you become a subscriber you then receive a Test Tube filled with deluxe samples and full-size products from the hottest beauty brands. All members also get a subscription to NewBeauty magazine which is delivered quarterly. I also like that TestTube subscribers receive video emails, demonstrating how to achieve optimal results with the products. This way we can be sure we are using them correctly.

When I received the Test Tube it came in a pretty box and inside it was wrapped in tissue paper. It was like opening a birthday gift. The tissue paper reviled a box shaped just like a test tube filled with beauty products and next to it was bonus products in a reusable zip lock bag with a card that said New Beauty, Beauty To Go. And lastly there is a booklet with all of the products and descriptions of them.


Ok let’s get into what I got in my Test Tube. There were 13 products total and two of them were full size products. One is a Tarte Blush in the color Frisky which is a $25 retail value. I have always wanted to try Tarte products but never have so I am very excited for this. This product is available at QVC, Ulta and Sephora stores. The other full size product is called Professional Solutions Triple Action Vitamin C Antioxidant serum for the face with a retail value of $40. That’s $65 just for the first 2 products, already the box is more than paid for.


The next product I got is a deluxe sample of It’s A 10, 2 fl. oz. Full Size retails at $18. Another product is something I have been wanting to try called GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. This is a sample size and looks like I can get a few uses out of it. Also the full size retails at $69 for 1.7 fl. oz.


Next if the Philosophy Hope In A Jar sample size product. The retail value for full size is $39 for 2 oz. Another product I am excited to try that I got is called the Bioxidea Miracle 48 Excellence Diamond & Gold. This is one packet and the full size comes with 3. The retail value for full size is $79 for 3 packs.


Two more makeup products! I love makeup it’s a real addiction for me. The other 2 makeup products I got are Grandelash-MD Grande Mascara in sample size. The full size product is $24.95. I love sample size mascaras because they are perfect for the makeup bag I keep in my purse. The next makeup product I got it called YBF Perfect Prep Face Primer in a nice sized sample tube. The full size product is 1.35 fl. oz for $28.

The last product in my Test Tube was a sample package of Simple Facial Wipes. Full size is 25 whips with a retail value of $4.95.

Now for the bonus products I received 4 of those. Which include a 1 fl. oz of Philosophy Shampoo, Bath and Shower gel in one. The scent is called Love Sweet Love. This smells really good and I can’t wait to try it. The next is a foil packet of Rodial Stemcell Super-Food Facial Oil. And the last 2 bonus products I got are NeoStrata Skin Active Cellular Restoration and Phyto Instant Hydrating  Conditioner.

I highly recommend this subscription service. The products are wonderful and of high value. The box is not filled with tiny little samples in foil packets. And so far I love every product I got.
