Spring NewBeauty TestTube
Half of the items in this quarter's tube were hair related, and none of the items were full sized. I can't help but feel that the quality and size of this month's items are a bit sub par compared to the 2 previous tubes I've received.
The John Frieda Blow Out Spray is supposed to add volume and sample value is $1.49. The Phyto Phytomist is a conditioning spray and is valued at $8.66. the other two hair related items are the Clear Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner, and are items that I've tried before. I like them okay, but they are loaded with silicones so I don't use the ones I have very often. The value of both are $1.47. There are some items I'm excited about trying, however, and you never know what will end up blowing your socks off :-)
Also included in tubes is the NewBeauty magazine that is valued at $9.95, bringing the total value of the Spring tube to $81.35. Definitely more than I paid, but far below the advertised value of $150. I decided to cancel my subscription as I don't want to receive a tube every other month, especially if the value and quality of the tubes is declining. I also did not like that I was never informed of the change in frequency of the tubes being sent out. However, I'm hopeful that this was just an off tube and if the quality does look good going forward, I may resubscribe at some point once I've used up the surplus of items I'm currently swimming in!
