NewBeauty TestTube March 2016

If you are unfamiliar with the NewBeauty TestTube, it is a beauty sampling program that comes out every other month.  It features a wide array of skincare, haircare and makeup with both deluxe samples and full size products.  Each tube comes with a description booklet filled with product details as reference.  Let's take a look at this month's selection.

Board and Batten Calming Lift spray

I usually associate moisture sprays with the warmer months because they provide light, refreshing hydration.  I love these type of products especially on days where I'm not wearing makeup and my skin needs a pick-me-up.  This spray contains aloe, hyaluronic acid, and rose water.  The scent is really nice, I love rose scented products especially in the spring!  This size will be perfect for travel or for in my purse.

Cailyn Cosmetics Liquid Gel Liner

In all honesty, I don't normally wear liquid eyeliner.  I find it looks a bit heavy and I prefer lighter looks for spring/summer.  However, this liner has great pigmentation and comes with a slim brush tip that will be great for a more subtle application.  The formula is flake-free and water-resistant which is ideal for any liner, in my opinion.

Grande Naturals Brow Fill

If I'm not mistaken, NewBeauty has featured this brand's mascara in the past and I loved it.  This gel has mini fibers to provide a fuller, more defined brow.  The shade included was light so it didn't look right on my dark brows, but I did like the brush included because it's small enough for precise application.

Oral Essentials Whitening Mouthwash

I've never been a fan of mouthwashes because they tend to be pretty harsh.  This mouthwash contains natural ingredients such as sea salt, organic aloe vera juice, coconut oil, and essential oils.  I like the idea of a whitening product that isn't too abrasive and has more natural ingredients.  Excited to give this one a try.

Chi 44 Iron Guard Style & Stay Protecting Spray

This hairspray does more than just lock in your style.  It strengthens and protects with ingredients such as keratin, silk proteins and vitamins A and E.  It also has jojoba oil and olive oil to keep hair conditioned and shiny each time you use it.  Most often I don't care for how my hair looks and feels after using hair spray, so I usually avoid it.  However, this spray sounds promising.  I'll definitely be using it when I wear my hair wavy this spring and summer!

Gavee Gold Serum

This serum has hyaluronic acid, goji, acai, and more surprisingly, purified liquid gold elements.  That's right, gold.  I had no idea gold had any sort of beneficial properties for skin.  This serum is very thin and absorbs quickly into skin with no residue.  I would be able to wear it under makeup as well as at night.  I'll treasure this sample because this product is quite expensive at full size!  Also, I have to find some purpose for the jar, it's gorgeous.

Klorane Makeup Remover Wipes (full size)

I'm always trying new makeup wipes so I was excited to see a full pack of these Klorane wipes.  These are pretty pricey ($13) for makeup remover wipes, more than I would typically spend.  They have cornflower extract which soothes and softens skin but no other remarkable ingredients from what I can tell.  I'll enjoy using these while I have them but I don't think I would repurchase.

It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Airbrush Powder & Bronzer Brush (full size)

This was definitely my favorite item in this month's TestTube.  I have a lot of It Cosmetics brushes but never took the plunge getting this more expensive brush.  I've seen dozens of rave reviews so I was really surprised when I saw this included!  It Cosmetics brushes are soft, great quality and last through dozens of washes.  I'm so excited to add this to my collection!
