NewBeauty Magazine

I discovered NewBeauty magazine randomly some time ago, and have been reading their online versions when available.  NewBeauty is a very unique magazine, in that it focuses on the science behind beauty, which is what I love about skincare and makeup.  I love reading about products, but I'm always focused on the essential ingredients and what they're supposed to do for my skin or hair, etc.  The magazine also features brands and products that are not necessarily what I consider "mainstream", brands that are commonly found at Sephora, Ulta or the department stores, rather the magazine features brands that are somewhat less known or new, brands that are used in spas, and brands that are more commonly found internationally, etc.  Alot of these products are very high end and alot of the products are also natural.  The magazine also provides information about plastic surgery, which, if it's something you're interested in, can be very helpful.  I'm not thinking about plastic surgery at this point in my life, but it's something that I'd like to be educated about. 

Recently they removed online access to the magazine, so I started subscribing to their Test Tube Program.  NewBeauty offers subscriptions to the magazines alone (four issues per year) or you can subscribe through their Test Tube Program, where you get the magazine and a variety of deluxe samples, and it comes with a booklet that gives more information about each of the samples.  Included in the tube is also a $20 gift card to spalook.com. 

My package arrived in a pink box, with the magazine, an issue of SpaFinder, which is a supplement that features different spas throughout the world, and a ton of samples.  Some of the samples that came with this issue include:
  • Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer
  • Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray
  • Dr Brandt Microdermabrasion Body
  • Kerstin Florian Correcting Oil-Free Daily Defense SPF 50
  • LashFood Natural Eyebrow Conditioner
  • Lumene Vitamin C Radiant Day Cream & Radiant Beauty Drops
I'm loving the idea of the Test Tube Program, since I'm constantly buying and testing new products anyway, this makes it just a bit easier.  Throughout the next couple of months I plan to review some of the products that I'm liking.  I'm really excited about some of these, especially the eyebrow conditioner!
