Warning! I know i raved about this product that i got from my New Beauty Test Tube but i couldnt of been any more wrong! I put this product on 3 days ago following all directions. I left it on for 2 minutes and holy crap it started burning so bad. I rushed to my sink and washed it off which let me tell you isn't an easy process. I was left with what looked like a sunburn in the shape of the mask i had applied. It continued to burn and is still burning till this day. I also am starting to break out like crazy every where i had applied the mask. I never in my life broke out on my forehead but i have little bumps everywhere and they itch! I just wanted to warn you girls because i know i raved about this product so much. Please beware, i wouldn't even bother trying it. It's not a good product, its very irritating to say the least. So again this is a WARNING! I know everyones skin is different but i can tell you this product is no good!

I was sent a new moisturizing breakthrough to review. I was sent this product about a month ago. I didn't want to write a review until i finished the bottle. It claims to provide an invisible shield to the outer layer of the skin. It binds to the skin such that the enviroment is not allowed to penetrate and desiccate the skin. Like an invisible glove shielding the skin it stops any products like harsh cleansers, acids and everyday solvents to penetrate the skin. It is a Antimicrobial Agent which means it decreases bacteria on the skin. It contains nautral ingredients such as Aloe vera which is an anti-inflammatory, Anica Montana that treats inflammatory conditions and prevents bruising, Chamomile which is also an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and has a calming effect on the skin. Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant and helps protect the structural integrity of the skin.
I have extremely dry skin in the winter with cracking and peeling on my hands and legs so i was very skeptical that this moisturizer could help. To my suprise it did. When first applied it has a cooling effect. It soothes the itching and burning associated with dry skin. There was no greasy feeling and it absorbed right away. When you apply this moisturizer you can feel relief right away. When you initially start applying this product you have to reapply every 2-8 hours at first. As your moisture level improves you then can apply every 12-24 hours or as needed. I have to say i am impressed with this moisturizer and i am not impressed easily. If i don't like a product i will tell it like it is. Its worth giving it a try. I will be ordering this product. Its cost is $18 which is not bad considering this is a really great moisturizer and protectant. If you want to try this product contact Carlos Verde at Carlo@skinmdnatural.com. Good luck!

I recieved my test tube from New Beauty and i was pleasantly suprised! These are very good size samples. Not all products are of a great size but you do get atleast three that are extremely generous if not full size. I actually got two test tubes. I had to wait almost three weeks which was a downfall and i wasn't happy with there customer service. I emailed them five times and no one ever got back to me. One day i wrote them a not so nice letter that i advertise them on my Beauty Blog and i was not happy with there customer service. Three days later i got an email apologizing. I was pleasantly suprised they sent me two test tubes to make up for there not so great customer service. Well to say the least i forgive them. I love every product i got. I will list them in random order. Dr. Brandt Pore Reducer, Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion for the body, Bioelements 10x Moisturizer gel with Hyluronic Acid, Lisa Hoffman Vitamin A and C serum in a full size, Jane Iredale Dream Tint Moisturizer with SPF 15, DDF Anti-Aging Cleanser, BeFine Food SkinCare Exfoliating Cleaner with Brown Sugar, Sweet Alond and Oats, Phyto Botanical Hair relaxing Balm, Trish Mcevoy Eye Base Essential, SuperSmile Mouth Wash in a large full size, Supersmile Toothe Whitening Toothepaste in a large full size, Super smile Professional Whitening System sample, Supersmile Quikee No brush No rinse Solution, Frederik Fekkai 3 Minute Moisturizing Mask for hair in a nice size sample, A Jane Iredale full size lipstick in Berry, Sarah Jessica Parker perfume in Covet, ColorScience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Mineral Makeup with Water Resistant Technology, Another Full size ColorScience Sunforgettable Mineral Makeup, Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum and Night cream. I also recieved two $20 Gift Cards to Spalook.com. All this for 9.95 because right now there having a special. It's usually $30 for your first test tube and then they send a tube out every 3 months charging you $30. every 3 months. The special is 9.95 for your first test tube and $30 in three months. I got more than usual because they sent me two test tubes. You cant go wrong for the price. The products are great. I forgot one more product and its the one i love the most. Its Sothys Microdermabrasion Mask. Oh my, this product is AMAZING, im in love. You put it on and rub in circular motions for 1 minute then you leave the product on for 2 more minutes like a mask. It changed my skin.Trish Mcvoy not so great. It was very drying and did not help my shadow go on smooth. I love the SuperSmile system including the Mouth Wash. It does whitens your teeth without the unwanted sensitivity other whitners give you. The DDF Anti-Aging Cleanser is very nice and soothing for the skin. Will it take away wrinkles like it claims, i doubt it. Anything that gets rinsed off down the sink drain is not treating the skin. I loved the Frederik Fekkai 3 Mask. It made my hair so smooth and silky, i will be purchasing this product as well. The Colorscience mineral makeup was okay if your using it as sun protection at the beach but not as a makeup. Its to white, chalky and drying. I love the Bioelements Moisture x10. Its for dehydrated skin. It has Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally found in our skin but decreases with age. Its a gel base so great for oily skin. Its to be used in conjuction with your regular moisturizer. Thats about all the products i have tested so this will be continued. In my opinion this New Beauty Test Tube program is a winner in my book. Check it out at NewBeauty.com.

I ordered a New Beauty Test tube throught NewBeauty.com. Its a tube filled with generous size high end product samples. You recieve the tube every 3 months. The price is 29.95 every three months. Right now thought they have a deal where you pay 9.95 for the firtst test tube instead of 29.95. I thought that was a great deal considering what you get, large size samples of about 4 to 5 high end brands and the New Beauty Magazine. You also get a 20.00 Gift card to Spalook.com. I will be doing a review on the samples i get.

CVS is holding it's end of the year makeup sale. All brands have been marked down. I purchased a Milani blush and lipgloss for less than $3.00. Most products have been marked down to 75%. I urge you to take a visit to your local CVS and see if this promotion is going on. I promise you it's worth it.
