ABOUT

What is TestTube?
TestTube is a one-of-a-kind sampling program curated by the editors of NewBeauty that allows its members to try the best beauty products before investing in them. Six times a year, subscribers receive a collector’s item tube filled with full- and travel-size products—valued at $150+—from the most innovative beauty brands, for only $29.95.

As a part of your membership, you will also enjoy a print subscription to NewBeauty magazine. NewBeauty ships separately from TestTube and is delivered quarterly. Your subscription to NewBeauty will terminate upon cancellation of TestTube subscription.
