From the Lab July 2015 Review + Free $5.00
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box for review.
From the Lab is a beauty subscription box that brings you the best in European beauty products to your door, for a fraction of the price it would cost retail. From the Lab has been a bit inconsistent with their boxes for the last few months. Since December 2014, they have only shipped one box before this month. From the Lab took a few months off on their subscription, and recently resumed their boxes.
From the Lab is $19.95/month (plus s/h) and they partner with some of the best beauty labs in the world to give you exclusive access to products, up to 18 month before they hit stores. All the products have passed the safety tests, so you are not being the guinea pig.
From the Lab does not use any product that is tested on animals or is derived in any way from an animal. The products are made to be used by all skin types and are free from parabins, phthalates, and other nasty ingredients. You can check out the full list on their FAQs page.
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.
Cost $19.95 plus s/h. From the Lab just has a month to month subscription.
Shipping: $5.95 for the monthly membership within the US. $8.95 for the monthly membership to Canada. $5.95 US / $8.95 Canada for all Member store orders, regardless of quantity.
What's in the box? 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.
When do I get my box? Your monthly shipment will arrive within the second week of each month.
Satisfaction Guarantee: For month to month Members if you are ever dissatisfied in a product you receive from your monthly service, they will refund your monthly payment for that month in full, less shipping and handling if applicable and only if they are notified within 30 days of you receiving the product. Trial memberships are excluded from the monthly refund on the first month of actual Membership but are still granted a 30-day satisfaction guarantee to replace defective products, or to exchange products for store credit.
It was a complete surprise when From the Lab showed up on my doorstep.
This month, the featured product in the box was Essential Face Serum No 640.
The information guide goes into great detail about the ingredients, instructions and benefits.
Essential Face Serum No. 640: Retail Value $90.00 You only need two drops to cover your whole face. I tried this out and it applied smoothly to my skin. With continued use, this serum is designed to firm and reshape skin, reduce dark circles and puffiness, evens out skin tone, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and hydrates skin. I can't verify all the benefits yet, but I will use this for a while, to see if it works.
Bonus Gift: As a special thank you for being patient between boxes, From the Lab sent a $25.00 credit for their online store.
Final Thought: Despite only having one product in the box, I did like the there was a serum as this month's product. I really enjoy From the Lab, all their products really work well. I am disappointed that From the Lab took such a large time off from their subscription. Currently, subscription are closed, but new slots will be opening soon. You can make an account and get a free $5.00 credit, even if you don't subscribe. You can check out From the Lab with this link.
