NewBeauty TestTube- First Review

 

Hi beauties!! Happy Valentines Day!!!!! ❀ On February 2nd I posted about the products I received in my first NewBeauty TestTube! I have been using these products for about 2 weeks now, and think I have been using them long enough to review them. Overall, I was very impressed with the products that I received. I hope you enjoy my reviews, and I would love to hear your thoughts and comments! Xo

What’s in my first tube:

  1. Votivo Red Currant Candle – This candle is my new favorite. I don’t purchase candles very often, and I have not purchased from Votivo, but that has definitely changed. Now I want to try all scents from the brand, because this candle is simply amazing. It smells sweet and has a vanilla and raspberry cookie scent. I feel very relaxed every time I have that candle lit, and I really recommend trying it out.
  2. Biosilk Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder – This was the only product from my TestTube that I was not impressed with. It smells good, but I felt like the product was a bit sticky and made my hair kind of hard, almost like I had put sticky candy in it. Also, while it did add texture to my roots, the rest of my hair looked super flat, and my roots where I applied the product to looked greasy by the end of the day.
  3. Pantene Expert Collection Pro-V Advanced + Keratin Repair Shampoo and Pantene Expert Collection Pro-V Advanced + Keratin Repair Conditioner – I am running out to buy this shampoo and conditioner in big, huge tubes. I have been obsessing over this shampoo and conditioner! It smells amazing, and even after drying my hair and adding products, I can still smell the shampoo/conditioner. My scalp has been dry because of this awful winter, and my hair was starting to look a little “blah” and dead, but ever since I started using the shampoo/conditioner my hair has gotten shinier, fuller, and overall it just looks and feels so much healthier. I really love it!! I am thankful that this came in my TestTube, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have thought to give it a try.
  4. Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner – This eyeliner is great. I love the color, and the texture. It feels almost creamy, even though it is an eye pencil. Many of my liners don’t come out well when I try to apply them into my waterline, but this one comes out pigmented and beautiful. It also doesn’t run all over my face. Definitely give this a try if you are looking for a good and long lasting eye pencil.
  5. Moroccanoil Body Butter – I have been using Moroccanoil in my hair for years, so I was excited to receive this product. I was not disappointed, it makes my skin feel so soft and it also smells yummy. This body butter has helped heal my super dry wintery skin, and I will absolutely be running out to purchase this!
  6. Revlon Age Defying Wrinkle Remedy Line Filler – This product doesn’t make a huge difference, but it definitely works to some extent. I have pretty big smile lines..I suppose I smile too much, so before applying my makeup I applied this into my smile lines and they definitely looked less deep and less noticeable, so that was wonderful. It didn’t do as great of a job where I have my “frown lines” between my eyebrows, but I think I only have those lines when my skin is super dry so I should just use a moisturizer to help fix that. I wouldn’t run out to purchase this, only because I don’t really have wrinkles, being that I am 22 years old. I do think that this product helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles though, not 100% of course, but it is noticeable enough in my opinion.

      Thank you! Yes the candle is amazing, it smells delicious! I just checked on their website and they said they are unable to ship to any locations outside of the U.S. but are working on changing that, so hopefully soon they will! =] xo

    I totally agree about the Biosilk! It was so freakin nasty and just stiff and tacky in my hair! Fail!

    Glad you’re liking the test tube! It’s my favorite beauty subscription service!!!

      Yes I was disappointed because I have so many products that I love from them, but that one didn’t do it for me.
