My Test Tube has finally arrived! This bright pink box, delivered quarterly, never disappoints!
CONTENTS THIS QUARTER:
Lumene Time Freeze Firming Night Cream | W/ ARCTIC HEATHER .5 fl oz:
this cute little pot of cream is created by a company founded in Finland. I feel luxurious when I use products like this on my hands and chest. My face is too picky and sensitive!
Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum | full size – 1 fl. oz. – $20: I was happy to see this in the tube! I am a sucker for anything you can use under your eyes. This multi-tasker is also a skin-brightener with retinol. It’s very lightweight, says the left hand I tried it on!
Neutrogena® Brightening Eye Perfector | LIGHT – full size – .17 oz.- $14
Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick (pen) | full size – $20. I am always happy to get a Mally product! I really like this soft color and the shine is awesome. I would buy another, for sure!
It’s a 10® Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin | 2 fl. oz.: looking forward to using this tonight! After washing, towel dry and spray product all over hair and comb through. Frizz elimination and shine booster? Sign me up!
Hydroxatone® InstantEffect 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer | 15 PACKETS – each .02 oz each: Initially I didn’t realize this was also for under your eyes. A dramatic, temporary, transformation is supposed to occur after using this! Temporarily reduces the appearance of crows feet, fine lines, wrinkles, and *gasp*, even under-eye bags. Where was this on the 5th of July when I had to drag myself out of bed and be at work at 7:3o!
Olay® Pro-X Clear Complexion Renewing Lotion | STEP 3 hydrate + renew .24 fl. oz.: Olay has been marketing the heck out of this line. What’s a girl to do with so many new samples to try! Ginger root and vitamins fade skin discolorations and prevent new breakouts from happening.
Jane Iredale Tantasia | .25 oz.: This was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter. It feels like an afterthought. I did swatch it though. It has an orange type smell. YUM!
AHAVA Essential Day Moisturizer normal to dry | .51 fl. oz.: I think AHAVA takes the team player award for including their products in every single beauty subscription you can imagine! Product 2 of 4 that was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer | .25 fl. oz.: Most people have tried this by now. Most people like it. I’m like most people in this case! Product 3 of 4 that was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.
Lash Food Eyelash Conditioner | .05 fl. oz.: At first my thoughts were why the hell would I need an eyelash conditioner? Seconds later I still had the same question. Instructions and a reason why I would want to race to try this should have been included in the program! This was product 4 of 4 oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.
NewBeauty magazine | Summer/Fall 2012 $9.95 an issue
Three SpaLook promo codes | 50 off 200, 25 off 125, 10 off 60. Nothing to jump out of bed for, but if you are a novice at finding coupon codes, or are not interested in searching for them, you may love these.
I LOVE this program. The quarterly charge Price: $29.95 + $8.95 shipping. How can you go wrong with this? You even get a magazine!
