|Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in Flush (value $26).|
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser (value $35). According to the Dr. Brandt web site, this is "a non-drying, pore refining cleanser that uses the power of tea tree oil, willow bark and salicylic acid to dissolve impurities and decongest pores, leaving skin with a fresh, ultra-clean sensation." Perfect for my skin type, really excited to try this out.
was an Allure 2012 Best of Beauty winner and is an anti-aging treatment formulated with Rhamnose, a naturally derived plant sugar, which is clinically proven to improve skin rejuvenation. Supposedly, after one drop, wrinkles and pores are visibly reduced, skin is lifted, smoothed and more radiant. Here's hoping!
Liftactive Eyes (value $4.50) also contains Rhamnose, as well as caffeine to reduce the appearance of dark circles and Escine to help flush out toxins and retained water to reduce puffiness.
Stila Face the Day multi-use gel cream (value $11.40) contains Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant-rich stabilized Vitamins A, C & E. It utilizes something called Alpine Rose Stem Cell Technology to rejuvenate skin cells and provides antioxidant protection while improving skin elasticity and texture. Sounds intriguing!
In addition to the core tube items that everyone received,there were a few extras included. I received a Mally Everolor Starlight waterproof eye liner in Midnight (value $15) and a Phyto Phytodefrisant botanical hair relaxing balm (value $5.50). I've been curious out the Mally eyeliners, although I wish I had received a color other than black as I'm swimming in black eye liners. The Phyto hair balm is silicone free, so I'm excited to see how it works.
Total value of the Winter TestTube is $104.36, not bad!
