From the Lab is a beauty/skin care subscription. Their beauty editors and advisers meet with the top cosmetic labs in the world to bring you small, limited lab runs of the most innovative beauty products up to 18 months before theyâ€™re in retail stores. Each month, you will receive a full, 30-day supply of one, two, or three products of Skin Care, Hair Care, or Color Cosmetics. Every product that you receive is a luxury product, not yet available on the US market, with a projected retail value of $50-$200. These products often have patented ingredients, are manufactured in Europe by the top labs, and are more innovative than whatâ€™s available on the US market today. The cost is $29.95 a month plus s/h, but right now, there are great deals for longer subscription.
From the Lab also has a point system. Once you earn 1.000 points, you earn $10.00 for the store. They are working on their system, and will be adding more ways to earn points.

From the Lab always ships in a pretty pink/red box by USPS
First Look: There was some thick foam in the box this month, it made the box seem very full.
I love information cards and From the Lab does them right.
From the Lab includes detailed information about every product they send. They tell you whats in the product and how to use it. I appreciate the detail they give, as I like to know what I am putting on my face and body.
From the Lab included a special bonus this month, Eyelift Primer no. 328
Eyelift Primer No 328: $29.95 value. This was a special bonus in the box this month. I actually have received this before in my free trial HERE. This stuff is amazing. This is actually my go-to eye primer. You don't have to worry about the color, because it goes on pretty shear. This makes my eye makeup pop and stay put. If I don't use this, my eye shadow sometimes falls under my eyes, late in the day. This stuff promises to make you eye shadow last for 12 hours, and it delivers.
If you are interested in the nitty gritty, this is packed with Para Cress flower extract and coffee extract to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and fight free radical damage.
Nourishing Hydration Balm No 624: $75.00 value. This is good stuff. I have tried this out and I am in love. This can be used as a cleanser, overnight mask, body balm, hair mask and more. I tried it as a hair mask and a facial cleanser. This left my skin feeling so clean and smooth, I love it. I tried it on my hair and was skeptical, because it's not as thick as my hair masks I use. This really left my hair soft and shiny though. I really was impressed. I also tried this as a hand cream mask and it worked great for that too. I put this on my hands then left it on for 15 mins while I watched tv.
This balm is packed with all kinds of good for body ingredients like raspberry stem cell extract, murumuru butter, apricot oil, vitamin E and primrose seed oil. This is a great balm and I will be buying more of this in the online store.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $104.95. This is a fantastic value and I am really impressed with the quality of the products. I really love From the Lab, because their products consistently beat products that are already on the market. I use From the Lab facial cleansing systems, the face primer, eyelift primer and now I will add the hydration balm to my routine.
