New Beauty 8-Piece Test Tube with Magazine
LIke receiving gifts throughout the year
I signed up for auto delivery and have received 4 Test Tubes. I love getting the samples to try new products and nice travel size of other products I already use (some reviewers complain about so much Wen and Philosophy but I like having the smaller sizes also). Love having samples to try of products I have considered purchasing on QVC but wasn't sure about spending the money on return shipping if I didn't like it. Some products I know I will not use so give to my daughters or mother.
I always look forward to my next shipment months in advance, it is like receiving a birthday present several times a year. I deserve to be spoiled. I will definitely renew my auto delivery when this plan runs out. Thanks for offering this QVC.
This was my first test tube. I figured I would give it a shot as there were plenty of products in it I'd been wanting to try... I think it was well worth the asking price, even though there are some products in here I don't care for as much.
The magazine, in my opinion is a waste. Its filled with things in it that are either way out of my price range ($100 toothpaste and other high priced products) or just not something I'm personally interested in (have a flat bottom? here is all the info you'll need for a kim k bum with the help of plastic surgeons). I've seen this magazine on the news stand at the local grocery store here, I've never picked it up and looked through it, and after reading through it with this kit, I wouldn't buy it separately.
The philosophy night cream smells like intense chemicals. I was actually really looking forward to trying this product. The one night I put it on I had to wash it off 5 min later. My face was really dry (to the point of flaking) and it seemed to burn. So, I'm waiting for my skin to heal up and I'll try it again.
The Wen is actually decent. I really REALLY dislike Wen. So, I knew buying this kit I probably wouldn't like this product, but I'm actually pleasantly surprised. I don't know if I'd buy it on its own, but its nice to have for now.
The PTR soap is nice, smells wonderful. I have to use it sparingly though, as I have very sensitive skin, and it tends to dry me out. But its very nice to try.
The Algenist product is wonderful. I loved using that. And the amount you've been given in this kit is wonderful because its enough for weeks of use. (you only use this product once a week).
The nail polish is nice as well. I've been wanting to try this line for some time. Just never took the plunge. I used it as a base coat for my nails before painting them over a week ago, and they still have yet to chip, which is amazing for me since my nails usually start chipping after about 2 or 3 days. (I didn't use it for my top coat however, I used a normal top coat polish).
The Josie oil is AMAZING! I can't believe how wonderful that product is. In fact, its the first product in this tube I've finished off. I wish I had more ha ha.
The tarte eye liner is very pretty.
and I have yet to use the mascara, as I currently have one open, so it will be some time before I try it out.
Overall, I'm very happy with the tube. Some duds, but hey, its a great price and you get to try things you'd otherwise not. I'll be buying the next one in the near future. Personally, I'd love to see Laura Geller products in there (I'm dying to try her things) and some more Josie oil. ha ha.
This is my first beauty test tube...I love it...the wen and the mascara costs as much as the test tube...I love the peter roth thomas face cleaner, the tarte eyeliner and the mascara. The wen is just so so as is the hope in a jar night time..time will tell on the Algenist. I liked the face cleaner so much..I ordered a kit of peter roth thomas products...
Really Enjoy These
Some are better than others, but for the most part I really like getting these. I hate the magazine. Waste of paper. But the products are great. Some stuff I end up giving away, but I love being able to try everything.
LOVE THIS IDEA
I'm so excited that QVC has something like this. There are many times when I want to try something I see on air but decide against it because I'm just not sure it will work for me. This tube is brilliant and such an amazing value. The majority of the products were things I've been interested in but haven't purchased and now I'm so glad I've tried them first! I love the cleanser in fact I've already ordered more, like the Argan oil, eyeliner, and micropolish. I've already been a user of Wen so I was happy to get another bottle of the replenishing spray and surprised to see that it was the larger size bottle. The only things I didn't like in the tube were the mascara and the magazine. Mascara doesn't work well at all for me and the magazine just seemed to focus on plastic surgery which was a little unsettling but who cares since it was such a great deal! So happy I got this on auto delivery, looking forward to my next one!!
Disappointed this time...
While I love getting the beauty test tubes, I was very disppointed with this one and sent it back. I will continue on auto-delivery though and hope the next test tube is better. I do think the test tubes are a good value, are fun, and are great for trying new products.
This purchase is really worth the price. There are so many items that I would never drop the money on without trying because I wouldn't know if it is worth it but getting chance to try before buying is so smart.
My first NBTT, and not my last! I am very happy with the assortment and the sizes. It will be nice to try some new things, like the mascara,cleanser, Algenist,and nail polish. The Wen mist feels fabulous on dry skin. The full sizes of mascara and eyeliner are great! Gorgeous bronze eyeliner, and Tarte eyeliners are the best. Great value, I think I will do autodelivery next time! As comparison, i received a paid sample box from a magazine, which is half the cost, for 5 large-sized samples. I liked that too, but for the money, you cant beat the test tube...much more than glorified samples here! I cant wait to read the magazine, too...lots of makeup and hair ideas, product suggestions, and other goodies!
Same Old Same Old
Does every kit need to have Mally, Wen, and Philosophy? I like those products but would like to try something new. I canceled my auto-delivery with the last kit that arrived. I was glad to see Algenist in the last one but really upset to find a "false bottom" on the jar that made it look like you were getting more product than you actually received. QVC carries so many other beauty products that if included would make this worth the price, but I can't see paying so much for sample sizes.
I usually buy the tubes and it is hit or miss for me. Some products are to my liking, and some are not. That being said, it is a good way to try new things. I will continue to buy the tubes and would recommend it to others. This one was just so so for me.
Nice Kit To Try
This is my first Test Tube and I am impress. The products were all very nice. It gives a good variety for me the play with. I like the Wen Treatment Spray the most. I will come back and check out the next kit.
Now this is a good one
I've had some so-so Beauty Test Tubes in the past. This one was much better. Happy with the mascara, the Wen, the Argan oil, the eyeliner. Really been wanting to try the night cream, the nail treatment, and the the Algenist. So it was perfect and a great value!
