Total value (WITH magazine): $115.55
New Beauty Test Tube is a quarterly beauty program that runs $29.95. The value always FAR exceeds the cost, and you receive a mixture of full sized and deluxe sample sized items. QVC joined with New Beauty magazine to put out a limited QVC edition which I think I like even more than the regular one since I adore all of the brands that are on QVC and you often get limited edition products that are only available thru QVC.

Balanced skin begins with Biodynamic® iris root extract in our Weleda Refining Toner, which regulates moisture balance at the visible surface of your skin. Mildly astringent organic wild rose leaf extract in this natural facial toner clarifies your skin while organic lemon juice, high in vitamin C and mildly astringent, refines the pores. The subtle, fresh fragrance of natural essential oils in this natural facial toner revives your senses.
So says Weleda's website, and by now it's pretty obvious that I trust these guys. But don't believe me? A quick internet search will show you that this stuff has practically a cult following.
I harp on this all the time because it's true- using a toner is a really good idea. It restores the ph balance of your skin after washing. It removes any last traces of dirt, makeup or soap that you missed. It tightens your pores.
This is not just any toner, however. Weleda is renowned for their fabulous natural ingredients and stringent quality standards. A few swipes of this stuff after washing your face leaves your skin surprisingly soft for something that contains alcohol. Unlike a lot of toners, this one doesn't leave the skin feeling tight or dry. The perfect base for your serum and/or foundation.
Even better, Vitacost has it and you get $10 off your first purchase of $30 through this link!
They sell it for $15.00, which is a 10% discount off the regular price, too!

I LOVE this little kit! I'm a huge fan of Weleda and I especially love this line during the dryer skin months. Yes, these are small- they are TRAVEL sized, they are meant to fit in with TSA liquid guidelines for carry on luggage. If you know you like the product then I totally recommend getting the full sized, but if you want something small to pop in your bag or you just want to try them out first, this kit is great. One kit is enough for me for a weekend away with a bunch of hand lotion left over for my purse.
The products themselves? The hand lotion is INCREDIBLE. Simply divine. The tiniest bit is sufficient for silky soft hands that stay soft for hours.
The body wash is not meant to lather. Don't waste the whole bottle trying. The ingredients that cause lathering are also what dry out your skin by upsetting the ph balance. Again, a small bit here will do the job and your skin will thank you for leaving your natural moisture. You feel the difference immediately, I don't remember the last time I got so zenned out just rubbing soap on myself!
The oil, while not weightless, does absorb quite well and leaves your skin glowing for a full day. Particularly divine after shaving your legs.
Pomegranate seed oil is extremely high in antioxidants that help with cellular renewal, dry spots, diminished skin elasticity and enviromental toxins. Weleda gets their oil from organic farms in Turkey and then have the seeds cold pressed to preserve the integrity of the oil. Weleda is in charge of the production of their products from beginning to end, just another reason why I trust this company to the nth degree.
It doesn't show on here, but if you click on the link, you have the option to buy a single kit for $6.00 (the $16.73 is for 2 kits.)
