New Beauty Test Tube: Fall-Winter 2012 sneak peek!

Recommended Posts

I got mine today.  For the either/or items, I got:

 

Yon-Ka Masque No. 1 and CellCeuticals Cell Genesis Eye Serum

 

They left out the

 

Kneipp® Eucalyptus Herbal Bath

 

But I'm not that interested in it, so it's not worth it to me to request another one.  Although I will say this is the second time something has been left out of my Test Tube.  In July, they forgot the three gift/discount cards.  But again, I wasn't going to use them, so I didn't really care.  But still - get some quality control on your shipping/fulfillment teams, New Beauty!

 

Overall, this tube is pretty decent for me.  I'm a skin care junkie so I love subs like this.  Unlike a lot of the ladies here, I'm fine with not getting any make-up because the skin care stuff will likely get used long before most of the make-up!

I think this will be my last Test Tube. I've been disappointed quarter after quarter not in the products but in their shipping and billing. Every quarter I have issues with my debit card being declined despite the fact that I have money on it for that subscription (along with my other subscriptions). Then there is the shipping problems where once payment is made I ended up waiting two weeks or more for the box to actually ship. This time I was charged fine (because I re-entered the same card number before being charged so it acted like I entered a new number) but I'm still waiting for the tracking number. According to my profile it's been sent.


TestTube #25
Order number: XXXXXXX
Shipped:10/9/2012
Order Total:$38.90
Billed:$38.90

LOL Really? Geeze, why are we paying that much money for shipping - which should have a tracking # at that price - then? LOL

I got my Tube earlier this week and my favorite product is the teeny tiny concealer!

It doesn't smudge of flake and looks amazing all day :)

Mine arrived as well and no eucalyptus bath either. Overall nice products. I'm looking forward to trying the Yonka mask.

I was so excited about the Bye Bye Under Eye, because I've been looking for a good under eye concealer, but I got Neutral Medium and I'm definitely a Light skin tone. :( I also didn't get the Eucalyptus Bath. Going to email them later about it. Anyone know what the usual policy is when they are missing things?

My test tube just showed up, too, last night.  It was a welcome surprise!  Seems to me that in the past I have received notice, like an email saying 'your test tube has shipped'. 

 

Regarding the missing products, I believe I read in the test tube booklet that we would received either the eucalyptus bath or the bath salts.  I received the bath salts.

I'm fair-skinned too but it blended really well and ended up matching my skin tone just fine, you should give it a try :)

I didn't get a bath either but in the pink booklet on the page with those two there's a fine print that says "Each TestTube contains one of the products shown above". So everyone was supposed to get just one of the items and not both. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I understood it :)

Can someone explain to me why they list more products than they include in the test tube? I'm curious because Summer was my 1st and I had order based on what others had received but the tube I received had a bunch of different products. I looked at the website and noticed that there are product links to other things. I really like what you are posting so I hope I get the same tube.

Curious, what did you get that was different?  Summer was my first shipment as well.

I got EXACTLY the same, and just those, products in your picture. I reread the booklet and for the bath salts/vial

we get one or the other. The first time I looked through the booklet I did not notice the tiny print at the bottom!

 

I like my NB TT but wish there had been some makeup in it! We did get over $200 in products, I carefully did the math,

and that's terrific for $30 plus s/h.

Finally got my tube. And this is by far the best tube! I love all the products. My fav is bye bye under eye concealer! Its by far the best concealer i have tried without being too chalky. I never wear concealers cuz it ecentuates my dry skin. this one works magic will definetly by the full size. Herbal bath salts had  a nice scent love to be pampered, Von ka moisturizer hasn't broke me out but cant see any life changing experience but, its only been 2 days so we will see!

I received this in a TSV from QVC in the full size which is like a life time supply. A little bit of this stuff goes a long way. I used it as a concealer everywhere BUT under my eyes. For some reason is accentuates my wrinkles which is the opposite of what is suppose to do, but I notice a lot of products do that on me. (I am allergic to Benadyl...lol)

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
