Yay, yay! The Fall 2012 New Beauty Test Tube has arrived. Loaded with great products, I had a blast digging in. *Don’t know what the New Beauty Test Tube is? Pop over HERE to read my first review, where I tell you exactly how it works. I’ll wait… What do you think?Cool, huh?*
Now read on to find out about the goodies. Several full sized items, and terrific deluxe samples.
Olay Deep Wrinkle Treatment: Full size $40.00- $44.00
I’ve used this before and liked it. There are other Olay products I just don’t like but this one is good. This cream is light but rich, and absorbs quickly. Targeting the deeper wrinkles, this is drugstore option that actually works. Will probably buy again since I have in the past. Great to get the full size.
Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask: Deluxe Sample Size
You know how everyone always loves the after color conditioners that come in drugstore hair color boxes? This super thick mask gives you that same oh-so-soft, touch-my-hair feeling. It’s totally fabulous. The sample is a great big deluxe size- enough for several treatments. The scent is beautiful, too. I’d buy it.
IT Cosmetics- Bye Bye Undereye: Sample
A truly incredible concealer. It covers even the darkest circles, even covers that little vein o the side of my nose (!!!) and you only need a dab. Blends, covers, lasts. I will buy. Definitely.
dr. brandt-dark circles away: Sample
This is a nice enough eye cream, and I know it gets rave reviews, but I don’t love it. Feels a little too watery, and my make up doesn’t really apply well over it. Probably wouldn’t buy. So it’s great to get a chance to find that out, before you lay out the cash.
Philosophy-Hope in a Jar: Sample
This is actually a moisturizer I almost always have on hand. Since I try so many products that have anti-aging and exfoliating effects, I like to take a break every now and then with my skin care regime. I use this as a nice, light but very moisturizing stand in. Very nice to get the sample, since it’s a shade spendy. Will buy again, since I’m a regular, if sporadic, user.
Yon-Ka- Masque N*1: Full size $58.00
Wowsa. This was my first time trying anything in this line, or even knowing about it for that matter. I decided to try it after an at home microdermabrasion session. All I can say is wow. Wow. My face felt so …supple. I am head over heels and now want to try the entire line. It goes on more like a lotion than a regular mask, and I left it on overnight. I adore. Adore! Will buy as soon as I have some mad money. It’s spendy. But… well, I’m Worth It. LOL.
CellCeuticals PhotoDefense Color Radiance SPF 55+:Full size $47.50
I love everything about this. I ran out of my SPF lotion the day before the tube arrived. I was happy, happy to see this full size item, and I remember thinking “oh, please be a good one!” It is. Super light, with just a touch of sheer color to lightly brighten your face. I am obsessed with SPF because of all those baby-oil and iodine years with tin-foiled cardboard splash screens. Oh yes I did!!! I held my breath for two days waiting to see if I would break out with this formula (I never did back when I was abusing my skin…go figure!) but, luckily no blemishes. For the price, not sure if I would buy again, but I do like it very much.
Kneipp Eucalyptus Herbal Bath
This is for a relaxing bath or a clearing bath when you feel sniffles coming on. I have actually been adding a drop or two to the water on our wood stove! It seems refreshing and invigorating combined with a few drops of lemon juice, just simmering away throuh out the day. I’ll certainly try it the next time I have a bath, too. I’d buy it.
All in all, another INCREDIBLE value- over $150.00 worth of products, for less than $30.00…plus the New Beauty magazine. Fun, fun, fun!! This would make such a great gift, folks. Christmas is almost here….
