Beauty subscriptions.  Who can resist?  With the vast array of options for beauty lovers, how do we choose?  They each offer something slightly different at various price points for practically any budget.  Beauty subscriptions can feature deluxe samples, full size items, brand new products, or sometimes discontinued products you can no longer buy.  What is most important to you as the customer?  If you want to try items that are currently available for purchase, at a discounted price, you will love the NewBeauty TestTube.

NewBeauty TestTube March 2015 - the beauty puff

Some products are found in every TestTube which are described in the booklet that is included.  Other products may vary.  Those items are noted as such below:

Haircare

John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment

Full size: 4 fl oz $9
Size included: 1 fl oz ~$2

Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Primer

Full size: 3.1 fl oz $9
Size included: .7 fl oz $2

Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Shampoo & Conditioner

Full size: 8.45 fl oz. $9 ea
Size included: 1.5 fl oz. $1 ea

Thoughts:  I appreciate the size of these samples and the fact that you can use three products from the Frizz Ease line to see how they really perform.  I love Frizz Ease and have excellent results with their products in the past.  I have never tried an in-shower volume treatment before, however.  I do not like how a lot of volumnizing styling products make my hair feel - stiff, sticky, and unnatural.  I am intrigued by the idea of a product that can be rinsed out and can work "behind the scenes" in a way, without sticky product buildup.

Skincare

Full size: 2 oz $94
Travel size included: .5 oz $26

Lumen Bright Now Vitamin C Day Cream

Full size: 1.7 fl oz $19.99
Size included: .5 fl oz ~$6

Algenist Eye Renewal Balm (item may vary)

Full size: .5 oz $65
Size included: .23 oz $30


Full size: 6.0 fl oz $16.50
Size included: 1 fl oz ~$2.75

Thoughts:  As a woman in her early 30's, I am paying closer attention to my skincare routine and how I can incorporate as many beneficial steps into my routine as possible.  That includes face and eye creams with skin-loving ingredients.  I was thrilled to see these products included in my NewBeauty TestTube.  Under eye products in particular tend to go a long way so I expect the Eye Renewal Balm to last a while.  I also love gentle facial cleansers and the fact that this cleanser has 30% Aloe Vera for sensitive skin (such as mine).  Overall, these products will fit very well in my skincare routine!

Makeup

Your Best Friend Mechanical Eye Pencil - Charming Champagne

Full size: .9 oz $14 (included)

Mally Lip Magnifier - Punch (item may vary)

Full size: .1 oz $20 (included)

Swatches:

Thoughts:  I am extremely impressed with both of these products.  They are both full size, gorgeous colors, and high quality.  After swatching both products on my hand and going about my daily routine, the eye pencil swatch was still visible at the end of the night.  Not only that, it still looked beautiful - not washed out or smudged in any way.  The Mally lip magnifier feels incredibly lightweight on the lips, leaving no sticky residue whatsoever.  I also love the color.  I have to admit though, seeing the color "Punch" I was afraid of an overpowering bright color I would not wear.  It can be layered for more opacity but overall it is a fairly sheer, easily applied lip color that is very versatile.

Total Value: ~$103

The Beauty Puff's Final Thoughts

I think the varying items in the NewBeauty TestTube can be the deciding factor as to whether you like this subscription or not.  I am personally very pleased with the varied selection I received.  I think it is well-balanced with haircare, skincare, and makeup.  They have included a lot of universally appealing items that can be used year round.  I will use and enjoy every single thing in this NewBeauty TestTube.  That is not something I can say for every beauty subscription I have tried.    Overall, this NewBeauty TestTube was a winner in my book.

The NewBeauty TestTube is $29.95 + shipping and is sent six times a year.  As you know, The Beauty Puff loves a good deal... Click here to save 30% on your first NewBeauty TestTube!
