New Beauty Test Tube - January 2014

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 

I received an email yesterday for this one, they have already billed my credit card and the email states that two weeks prior to shipment is when they'll bill. However the email goes on to say that they'll be mailing them out on the first of January, which is a bit further out than two weeks from today.

Are you sure that they charged your card?  I received the same email, but nothing charged yet.  I was having a problem with my card while traveling when the email came, so maybe they could not post a charge that day.

There's a sneak peek video up on YouTube http://youtu.be/asxYiA8Phew

Is it me, or are some of the item similar to the last tube?

Oh yes, the shampoo & conditioner is very similar.  There are Mally eyeliners in many of the QVC Test Tubes.  The candle is the same as the last tube.  Let hope that by sneak peek, they don't mean that this is everything in the tube.

Not thrilled...but I will use the stuff. I'm gonna cancel and just pick up tubes once I see the contents. When's the next QvC one?

 I didn't either.  But I didn't miss it.  If I could, I'd take the tube without the magazine.

NBTT newbie here! I am sooo confused. Why are the QVC and regular New Beauty subscriptions different? Does signing up for one sign up for the other? Do they tend to differ in brands and types of items?

 

Sorry for the influx of questions.

Wasn't there a slip of paper or something that said the magazine would be sent at a later time?

I was definitely charged. It showed up on my Citi account.

Screencaps in the Spoiler below. They did say that there would be other items in the tube besides these.

They did say that in the reveal video however on their page where they have the tube with it's items pictured (includes the magazine in the background with the small plastic extra sample bag), I've only seen one extra item, blah! Counting the shampoo and conditioner as two items, there seems to really only be 7 items in the tube but they have most of them listed as full size.  I'm at such odds over this sub, it's SO much money for 4 times a year if there's only 7 items which includes shampoo and conditioner but yet I'm just always SO intrigued by it!!! I've splurged and gotten this one and the QVC one for the past 2 tubes but they fell in different months. For January, they will BOTH be shipping so I'm watching very carefully to make sure I MUST need the items from the QVC tube.

I got an email offer to join this box for $20.95. I'm on the fence whether to join. The only thing I was really ooh-ing and ahh-ing over was that candle. 

 

How do you sign up for the QVC one? I searched for it on the QVC website and it just said sold out.

post #17 of 64
the qvc one probably wont be out till a bit later this month.
post #18 of 64

The QVC one and its contents is now live on their website.  You can get a one time tube or sign up for auto-delivery.

post #19 of 64

A freakin' candle and more Pantene? What?! Really? Are they trying to get us all to cancel? This was a favorite sub of mine for almost the past two years. But since they doubled the cost of if by making it bi-monthly (instead of quarterly), they've drastically reduced the value and quality of the products they send. I want to stick with it since I cancelled half my other subs, but they sure aren't making a worthwhile case for themselves.

 

*On a side note, I don't think that candle is a NBTT repeat (as someone mentioned)...wasn't it Sample Society that sent those?

We got a candle with both... NBTT and Sample Society. NBTT was a VOTIVO in Icy Blue Pine scent and the Sample Society was a teeny tiny round ILLUME Balsam & Cedar Soy Candle.

Oh, god...yeah, you're totally right! I hated that pine scent and I guess I forced myself to forget LOL My Sample Society one wasn't balsam and cedar (thank goodness - I'd so hate that). I got Desert Tulip there, and it reminded me of Clinique Happy (which I like), but I still never ever want a candle in a beauty sub.

Lol... I'm trying to force myself to sort of like them. When I was typing my last post, I started feeling guilty that I have 2 Christmas candles and didn't use either one. I hate wasting anything but I can't imagine them being packed up until next Christmas (probably would end up smelling worse than they do now). I am debating whether I should just suck it up and get them out of the way by burning them now even though the season is over!

Just saw my card was charged so I came too see the spoilers. Utterly disappointed. Canceling after this. Was disappointed by the last one too. Am I the only one?

post #26 of 64
I for one thought the items were way "higher endish" before theyy switched owners and to every other month except for the last few tubs the old NBTT owners were sending out.Now im not excited for drug store brands and bc of so many repeats i dont feel as if i am getting to "experiment" with beauty. I am Mally eyelinerd out. It could just be me being such a junkie that it takes more to impress me beauty wise. I enjoy trying higher end things that i know I would not spend the money on unless I had sampled and loved them. Pantene just does absolutely nothing for me.I have been with NBTT for like 2 yrs now and am seriously condidering cancelling . I do however, miss so badly the tubes I received my first yr with them.

I've tortured myself by watching Youtube videos of the subs that were received around the time that you're speaking of and they were SO amazing.... I kick myself constantly for missing out on them!

Just ordered the qvc version after seeing its contents. I think I will be cancelling the regular version. I don't need mass market shampoos and such. It is such a pricey subscription to be meh about.

post #29 of 64

Got my tube today!  Had all the contents as above PLUS

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There was also a June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Enzyme Mask  in the tube itself.  My Beauty to Go extras were: a foil of DDF moisturizing dew, Immunocologie treatment cream, Lumene firming day cream, and a mini ybf lipgloss in beachberry!  ( always excited to get lip products)

The extras really helped improve the tube for me. thumbsup2.gif  Of course I should never come back to this thread lest someone else gets something I covet more and gives me tube envy! :icon_lol:

post #30 of 64

thanks for posting that info mckondik... the extra items does make it seem quite a bit better than just what they revealed in the video! Now I'm excited for mine to get here and oh my goodness, I really hope that I also get that lip product sample....
