NewBeauty TestTube is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind sampling program that enables members the opportunity to try a variety of the latest breakthrough beauty products before investing in them, and then share their feedback about the products. Six times a year, for just $29.95 (plus shipping and handling), subscribers receive a TestTube filled with deluxe and full-size products from the hottest beauty brands. Members will also receive a subscription to NewBeauty magazine, delivered quarterly.
NewBeauty TestTube ships via FedEx Smart Post and takes about a week to arrive. Boxes ship bi-monthly and generally arrive towards the beginning of the month (or at the end of the previous month like this month’s box).
Some of the products were too big for the Tube this month which had me hopeful it was going to be a fabulous month.
NewBeauty TestTube includes a great information book with product information, prices, details on where to buy the products, etc. Here is what was included in the November 2015 shipment:
~Key West Aloe Mango Bath & Shower Gel (2oz) ($5): This smells amazing! The information booklet describes it as a “vacation in a bottle” and I’d agree. It’s just fabulous. It’s made from 20% lab certified aloe vera, vitamin E and mango extract.
~BioSilk Color Therapy Lock and Protect (5.64fl.oz) ($12.50): I have been dying my own hair again and it just doesn’t last as long as the salon color does. This helps to “prolong the radiance and intensity” of your color while also enhancing the overall “luster and shine”.
~GLO pop Teeth Whitening Treatment ($26.70): These are hands down the item I am most excited about in the box. It’s a teeth whitening treatment that takes only a few seconds each day. That sounds perfect and I am going to try these this weekend.
~Hada Labo Tokyo Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask ($3.75): This mask contains super hyaluronic acid (that sounds a little scary but it’s not), soy peptides, collagen and vitamin E. It takes just 10 minutes and left my skin feeling smoother right away.
~Color Secrets Extreme Sheen Smoothing Lip Gloss ($3.99): Subscribers received either this gloss or a Color Secrets Nail Polish. I received the gloss. The formula is okay, but I am not real into the color. Luckily it’s not super pigmented so it’s not like I have bright purple lips or anything.
~Pure Gold Collagen Liquid Beauty Supplement (1.7fl.oz) ($4.99): Yeah, I don’t know about this. It tasted okay, but I don’t really want to be sipping on my beauty products you know? This is only one bottle so I didn’t see any results either. I think it’s difficult to judge something like this because there’s just not enough to be able to tell if it will work for you or not.
~NeoCell Biotin Bursts High Potency Biotin Soft Chews (20 chews) ($8.66): These were actually really good. I could see myself using these in place of a biotin supplement everyday (not that I take one, but still). I will keep these in my purse to remind myself to use one daily.
Edited to Add:
~Algenist Firming & Lifting Cream (0.5fl.oz) ($23.50): This wasn’t in the information booklet and I totally forgot about it! That’s obviously why I thought the value was so low the first time! The cream looks like it’s going to be heavy, but it’s actually quite lightweight and silky smooth. My skin didn’t look any different right away (it’s supposed to “visibly tighten, lift and tone), but it felt smoother and firmer.
All totaled I came up with a value of
$65.59 $89.09 for the November 2015 NewBeauty TestTube. The value seemed super low to me for NewBeauty TestTube and I just wasn’t too impressed with this one. One good thing was that all of the products were new to me, but the value just wasn’t there this month. Now that I realize (thank you Nancy) that I was missing an item in my original post, I feel like the value is much higher and more like NewBeauty TestTube. It still wasn’t my favorite tube, but I did love that everything seemed to be a new item to me and new to the tube!
