From the Lab October 2015 Review + Free Credit
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 European beauty products to your door, for a fraction of the price it would cost retail. From the Lab resumed their boxes the end of August (after taking a break for a few months). This is the second box since they have resumed. I am not sure if it is September or October, so I am calling it October.
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.
I always enjoy From the Lab products, so I was happy to see another box.
The product this month is Single Drop Anti-Stress Care Treatment No, 582. From the Lab always includes a very detailed information card.
There was a two-sided paper that described what the product is made of, how it works and how to use it.
Single Drop Anti-Stress Care Treatment No, 582: This serum is designed to be used in one drop to fight the aging process and protect the collagen in your skin. An anti-stress peptide counteracts damage from aging, external and environmental stress. The anti-stress peptide also works to decrease the depth of wrinkles around the eyes and it creates a more youthful complexion.
How to use it: I didn't take a picture of the dropper, but when you unscrew the lid, there is a dropper attached. Just press the button on top and it will drop one drop onto your hand. I didn't imagine it would cover my face, but it did.
As with any serum, you are not going to see results overnight. I have used the product and will report back as I see noticeable changes.
There was a card letting subscribers know there are getting a bonus $5.00 credit in their account this month. You can create an account with From the Lab and get a $5.00 bonus credit yourself, just use this link.
Final Thought: This was a nice box and I am excited to see how the serum works. They didn't include the retail value of the product this month and I haven't seen it in the online store. Typically, boxes contain one or two products, and serums usually cost more than other skin care products. If you want to try From the Lab, use this link. You don't have to subscribe right away, you can make an account and get a free $5.00 credit.
