This is a quarterly cosmetic subscription service from QVC and New Beauty called Test Tube for $29.96 plus $6.72 shipping.  Included in the August shipment are the following products:Philosophy - Hope in a Jar for Body, 4 fl oz., $8.75 retail valueAlgenist - Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser, 1.5 fl oz, $9.39 valueBliss - Soapy Suds Body Wash & Bubble Bath, 2 fl oz, $2.25 valueOjon - Rare Blend Protecting Treatment, .85 fl oz, $3.45 valueAlterna Bamboo - 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray, .85 fl oz, $4.45 valueOle Henriksen - Ultimate Lift Eye Gel, .25 fl oz, $9.50 valueMally - Lip Magnifier Lip Color in Punch, .1 oz, full size, $20.00 valueLaura Geller - Waterproof Eye Spackle Advanced Primer Eye Shadow in Mauve Majesty, .074 fl oz, full size, $23.00 valueNew Beauty MagazineAfter shipping and tax this one cost me $38.89. The retail value of this Test Tube is $80.79.  That's a good value, but no where near as good as the last one that had a value of over $143!  I don't include the cost of the magazine, which they value at $10, because it's mostly advertising.  I look forward to trying the Philosophy body lotion, the Algenist cleanser, Bliss body wash, Alterna volume spray, and Ole Henriksen eye gel.  I tried a previous Laura Geller eye spackle and I had an allergic reaction, so I will be selling that one.  Her regular spackle that is a makeup primer is my favorite primer.  I have so much lip gloss that I'm trying to use up what I have before I add more to my collection.  I've tried Ojon before and I really don't think it works at all for fine hair.  New Beauty Test Tube also offers a regular version of this subscription, but it's mostly drug store brands.  The QVC Test Tube is my favorite due to the expensive brands they include.
If you would like to purchase this subscription service, the item number is A251147.  The next shipments are in October, January and April.  What's your favorite cosmetic subscription service?
