January’s New Beauty TestTube actually arrived in December. Not sure if they changed their schedule or not! Below I have my review of this month’s tube plus a giveaway for another one! Sometimes there are variations, but I haven’t opened the box to check! When you subscribe to New Beauty Test Tube you will receive a TestTube filled with deluxe and full-size products from some of the hottest brands, hand-selected by the editors of NewBeauty magazine. You will also receive a subscription to NewBeauty magazine, delivered quarterly. The subscription is $29.95 every other month plus $8.95 shipping.
Every box comes with a huge information booklet.
And all the items are tucked neatly into your tube! I stack the colored parts of the tubes in my closet and use them to store my stockpile.
All the items in the January tube! Unlike last month I don’t think anything was a repeat, although I’ve received some of these items in other subscriptions.
Algenist Firming & Lifting Cream ($23.50) I love all the Algenist products I have ever received and am excited to try this one out. They are pricey but seem to work well!
Chi Argan Oil plus Moringa Oil ($3.75) Remoisturize hair while adding shine – I think this is great for winter! I think it’s heavy duty because it says to spray on your hands and apply to hair.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($6.09) This is a fantastic ultra fine dry shampoo!
Balanced Guru No Frizz Oil ($9.83) This seems duplicative of the CHI (which I haven’t tried) and since I’ve received TONS of this (including full size) I am a bit disappointed that it was included. Nice value though.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($9) I was pretty meh about the last box including the precleanse (which was a dupe from Popsugar) but maybe they had a reason? Still, I’d like to see matching products included together. Still I am SUPER happy about this because I love microexfoliating powders, including this one. I also love that this has a good dispenser that makes it easy to use in the shower.
Kneipp Herbal Bath Eucalyptus ($3.20) We just received an almost identical product in Glossybox but I was psyched about this because I can use it in my new warm mist humidifier!
Color Club DRY ice Rapid nail lacquer dryer ($11) This is a real score for me! We go through loads of drying drops with 2 little kids that love painted nails and a mom that barely has time for a manicure 🙂
Eraclea ever-moist lip balm ($16) This is a petroleum jelly based balm but I looooove it (sorrry!). My lips are so soft right now, I will use this whole tube.
The total value of the January 2015 New Beauty Test Tube is $82.37! I thought it was a great tube overall and I cannot complain about the value! There are a ton of great products in here and I didn’t feel that it was repetitive to past tubes.
