The bitter cold from the polar vortex has taken a toll on everyone’s skin, here in New York. With Spring being right around the corner (first day of Spring is March 20th) we have something to look forward to, other than better weather: we can revamp our daily beauty regimen with brand-new products that have yet to hit the market. Best of all? They’re at a fraction of the cost! From the Lab offers a monthly subscription of top-of-the-line high-end products at a very affordable monthly cost. Here’s how:
From the Lab members pay $29.95 per month (plus shipping & handling) and get 1-3 full-sized samples of cosmetic products (such as anti-aging facial and eye creams, hair masks and body serums) once a month. These products are not yet available to the public so you can get your hands on them up to 18 months before they hit retail.
The products for February were Face Scrub 597 and Face Mask 598 which are perfect for starting a brand-new beauty regimen. A good facial cleanser will take out all the impurities and leave your skin glowing. I received the cleansers for review and was thrilled with the way they worked on my face!
For a quick rinse Face Scrub 597 works wonders; its got Purple Jojoba exfoliating beads for gentle but effective exfoliation, plus grape extract and Willow Bark extract. It has a gentle, subtle fragrance.
If you have an extra 15-20 minutes, use the Face Mask 598. It’s perfect for the night routine when you’re not rushed to go out the door. You just put it on (it’s got a great scent!) and wait for 15-20min. Then massage into skin and rinse off. This is an even deeper cleanse and will leave your skin ultra-clean and glowing due to an algae which contains fatty acids and tomato essence, made of tomato stem cells.
All of the “From the Lab” products are free of parabens, phthalates and other potentially harmful ingredients and they are never tested on animals. And if you happen to like one of the products in particular you can order more just of that specific product for $29.95 (this is only available for members).
Visit From the Lab to learn more about this program. You can sign up for a month-to-month basis or for a 3, 6 or 12 month membership.
I was not compensated for this post. I received samples.
