The value is great, tho one thing that really upsets me is that I always get anti aging stuff in my subscriptions and I'm 21! I don't need anti aging stuff :( not for like 4 years at least :(  But I guess I can give it away/trade it.

I want to know what people think of the products? Specifically the two eye products and the CellCeuticals Photodefense- is this like a tinted moisturizer? Is there any coverage with it?
post #65 of 85

The photodefense is nice... it's a very light coverage. Lighter than a tinted moisturizer. I like it for days when I don't want a lot of makeup on. The eye cream is ok, I guess. I mean I haven't noticed any difference in my eyes since using it, but it smells nice and feels nice. The other eye item I got was the concealer and I love it. It's thick and waterproof, but it blends well.

I got mine today and love everything! If anyone got the cellcuticals in light and would like to trade for medium let me know.

I have heard that it smells like wet dog.. To me It just smells different (but not bad) with a bit of lavender. It kinda creeps me out that it doesn't smell bad to me since it does to everyone else lol is my nose broken?

I think all the Philosophy products stink.  Their perfumes remind me of cheap perfume that has been set out in the sun for 6 months.  Gag.  I like the body washes, but everything else from Philosophy just plain smells bad.

post #73 of 85

I agree it smells terrible! I have never used any of their face products before and I hated the smell of this one. Honestly I don't like the smell of my YonKa either! Ick!

I'm not crazy about the smell of the Yonka either, but not because it smells bad.  It smells just like the scrubby stuff that my husband uses to clean his hands after he has been working on the car and I feel weird about putting it on my face because of the association.

That's good to know.  I've never used any Philosophy products before, but I was always curious.  I'm not anymore.

My bf's mom uses philosophy's amazing grace, when I leave the house and go back to my country, my clothes smell like her and I like it, cuz it reminds me of my bf(we are apart for periods of time...) I love that perfume, I wouldn't use it cuz in my mind it's her's. I don't think philosophy's products stink, hope in jar does tho, but everything else smells ok, I've used purity and it smells fine, even microdelivery which is a scrub/peeling kinda thing smells ok. My advice is check out yourself, cuz what you might like some others might hate, you know? 

post #76 of 85

I did like the smell of YonKa because I'm into those kinds of piney/medeciny scents, but absolutely hated the smell of hope in a jar. It gave me a headache on top of breakouts along the jawline :(

post #77 of 85

I also have the CellCeuticals PhotoDefense Color Radiance in Medium that I would love to trade for a lighter color.

What are you looking to trade for? Makeup? What brands do you like/want?

The IT under eye concealer is FANTASTIC! It is also great to use to cover up any blotches or spots on your face. I haven't tried the Dr. Brandt yet...and I got another CellCeuticals product, not the Photodefense.

Called them yesterday and they said they would replace it, yay!

post #84 of 85

Honestly I wasn't in love with this sub.  I love the concealer it' has a great consistency.  My hair it too thin for the hair mask, so that'll be a xmas gift to a friend who loves that brand.  The bath oil was STRONG, but I think my bf might actually enjoy it.  

 

I tossed the little lotion sample in my travel bag, but the rest of the anti aging stuff.  Meh. I guess I'll used the sun screen come summer, I already have sun screen in my makeup.  Sigh.  I'll give it another try but if it stinks next time, I'm out.

post #85 of 85

I just checked out the website and it appears this box is still available.  I think I'm going to order it.  I love, love, love any kind of skin care and this Test Tube looks to be chock full of skin care items!  I'm especially interested in the Cellceuticals and Yonka products, but would love to try out all the rest as well.  A Yonka product alone is more than the price of the Test Tube!

 

I recieved my first QVC New Beauty Test Tube a couple of weeks ago, and I'm very happy with it.  :-)
