The fun, experiential beauty sampling program.

Launched in 2006, TestTube was the first beauty product-sampling program to enter the market. Members get to try a variety of the latest breakthrough products before investing in them, and then share and discuss feedback through TestTube’s online community. Six times a year, for just $29.95 per delivery (plus shipping and handling), subscribers receive a package filled with samples and full-size products from the hottest beauty brands.
