Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure


An early morning quick look at the November New Beauty TestTube (early morning = terrible photos). Not my favorite box ever – lots of repeats – but I have an extra box to giveaway, and free is always GREAT! Enter the super easy giveaway below!


  • Klorane Make-Up Remover Biodegradable Wipes with Soothing Cornflower ($12.50) These are great!
  • Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Ice Blue ($15) even though it’s yet another Mally product it would have been awesome. if it wasn’t ice blue. again.
  • Revision Skincare Intellishade Broad Spectrum SPF 45 (Regular and Matte) ($5) repeat from 2 tubes ago.
  • CHI Silk Infusion ($8) new item? I cannot recall.
  • Votivo Icy Blue Pine Candle Tin ($15) repeat. some people got red currant. i’ve gotten both from nbtt
  • Donell Lip Saver SPF 15 ($7) New item, but its lip balm.
  • Frizz Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme ($1) repeat I think.
  • Dermalogica Precleanse ($9.50) New Item – I think was in psmh last year.

Really, just the shortest look ever at the contents. New Beauty TestTube does not expect anyone to basically subscribe for more than a year to this tube. It’s a shame because it’s high value and the products are good, but nobody wants to receive the same ones over and over, especially from the same box!

    I liked my tube. I have been a NewBeauty subscriber since it started and I don’t remember getting this tube before. I had seen a few reviews saying this one sucked so I wasn’t expecting much but once I got mine I was like what are people complaining about. It’s perfect for Christmas because I am set with my stocking stuffers and I just ran out of makeup wipes so its great timing. Honestly compared to the other tubes out there, this one is way better and you actually get products that you can use for more than one use. My birchbox comes with a tic tac size sample and is $10 so this seems to be a way better value for the money.

      PS I forgot to say congrats on the baby.

    It’s your blog so there should be no question that you get to share what you think!

    Kudos to you for being honest. If it’s the same junk in another tube- what’s there to blog about? Why are they not accountable for sending the same items over and over and over. At this point the tube is kinda over for a lot of us.

      Thank you!!!! I totally appreciate it 🙂

  • Melissa

    *Hugs* Brandy, I’m surprised you’re even back at blogging so soon. A 7 week old is a lot of work, and especially when you have other kids in the mix. Get some rest whenever you can! And thanks for all the giveaways 🙂

    • Brandy

      Awww thank you! It’s been nuts but if I didn’t blog I am not sure what I would do with all this mail. It’s crazy embarrassing! The ups guy today was like can we just put it in the garage? THAT. BAD. I have new house and new baby and Xmas/bday gifts for the kids on top of it all. (One and 2 have birthdays the week before Christmas. It’s total insanity)

  • Disappointed!

    I used to really enjoy your reviews, but lately, they seem so negative that I hardly want to read them! It doesn’t seem like you’re putting any effort into it… just this entire “here it is. I didn’t like it. Whatever.”. I read reviews of these things to get a feel for if I want to subscribe or not, and with the reviews you put out, I wouldn’t sub to anything! Just because you’ve received an item before doesn’t mean people don’t want to hear about it! Link to an old review, give your thoughts, something a little MORE than what you’re doing.

    I think today is the day I unsub from your blog. Best wishes!

      I am sorry you feel this way. I think i mentioned it was a quick look but i should have called it a mini review. I have a 7 week old and not enough time to do a full review of duplicate items. I think the feeling you should have gotten was that you shouldn’t subscribe to this box for long. High value but repetitive. I only posted the review to do the giveaway.
