new beauty testtube

May 16, 2012

New Beauty was so generous and sent me this quarter's testube to fall in love with and review. It came with all of the products listed above and there is still plenty of time for you to get your own testtube.

Who doesn't get excited when a pink box arrives?

Oh look, it really is a tube! 

All of this really fit in the tube. I must've shrieked a little bit when I saw the full size Moroccan Oil! I LOVE Moroccan Oil, so that right there is worth the entire box, I almost didn't care what else was in there. New Beauty magazine was also included, but not literally in the tube. 

I'm weary of subscription sample boxes, but I think that $29.95 per quarter is definitely worth it. 

Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick- I probably would have loved this if it wasn't red.
Moroccanoil Frizz Control- Did I mention that I love this?
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex- I have not used this yet. I don't like to use two creams at once and am still evaluating another brand. 
ybf Eye Liner. I love that the lid is a sharpener, however, I don't love red eyeliner. 
Memorie Liquide Soliel Liquide Fragrance and Fleur Liquid Body Cream- I wish I loved it. The body cream feels nice, but I think they both smell terrible, it's a scent even a grandma wouldn't like. 
Perlier & Elariia- I do like this body cream and will use it when I travel. I haven't used a body cream I don't like, so it's hard to compare to anything. 
SkinCeuticals- I have not used this yet. 
dr. brandt signature BB cream with flexitone- I have used this, but it's been a short period of time so I'm not sure about results, but I do not have negative comments. 

All in all, if you're adventurous when it comes to beauty products and want to get to know brands you haven't tried or maybe you haven't heard of, try testtube. I was pleased that the website showed me exactly what I would be getting, but I am also used to taking a survey with other subscription boxes to make sure I get what I want. I like the variety of products that testtube sent, I just wish the eye colors would have been neutral. 


  1. I haven't signed up for any monthly beauty boxes yet, but I love reading other people's reviews of products. New Beauty Testtube definitely sounds interesting.

  2. It looks a lot like birchbox.. I'll have to check it out!
