From The Lab July 2014 Review and Coupon Code

From the Lab is having a birthday!  In honor of that, they sent a whopper of a box!  This month there are FOUR items!  The retail value this month is over $250 and has a little of everything.
Look at all those goodies!  I recognize some of them from past boxes but I will tell you right now, I am thrilled to have more.  I've been really impressed with what has been sent in my From The Lab boxes!

The Cost: $29.95/month, shipping is free (Use code GETFREE30 and you'll get $30 back to spend in the Member Shop!)

What you Get: One to three full size luxury beauty products delivered to your door each month.  These products are estimated to be worth at least $100 on the retail market but you will get them before they are even available for purchase anywhere else.

From the Lab AM/PM Cleanser No. 586-  This removes makeup, cleanses, tones and treats your skin and you can take it anywhere because you don't need water to rinse your face.  This improves on a micellar water by combining a host of gentle, beneficial actives with non-comedogenic, oil-free molecules that encapsulate and dissolve makeup an dirt.  Perfect for camping, hiking or a day at the beach.  This has a very light fragrance.  I can't wait to put it to good use.

From the Lab Hair Mask No. 718- This hair mask combines advanced anti-aging skin care technology with customized polymers and a biomimetic peptide which conditions your strands and nourishes your scalp so your hair grows out healthier.
You use it on dry hair for 30 minutes then wash your hair.  Interesting.  I like how mention that it's your new hair that's going to be healthy.  You can't fix hair, it's dead.  You're not going to make it stronger or get rid of your split ends by slapping on product.  You *can* however have a healthy scalp and hair follicles.  Healthy follicles produce healthy hair!  So I'm going to use this for sure!

From the Lab Face Primer No. 327- I love this stuff!!  I'm so glad to have more.  This is my favorite primer ever.  It's innovative formula reflects light to create an even, natural, high definition finish that doesn't feel heavy or clog pores.  It also keeps your makeup looking fresh for up to 24 hours.
Your skin will appear visibly smoother and more luminious with an evened out skin tone. You'll stay matte all day.  Really.  You will!  I wore this gardening and sweating and when I came in I was perfectly matte!  Love this stuff.  It makes my skin look great and my make up applies beautifully.

From The Lab Face Mask No. 598- This is a nourishing gel maks that soothes, cools and revitalizes skin.  Perfect after a day in the sun.  This mask uses an abundance of unusual ingredients and ancient healing botanicals like Absinth, Armois, and Heart of Sea Algae.  That must be why it's green.  This is rich in antioxidants and mosturizes while promoting elasticity and collagen production.  Perfect for all skin types.
I'm going to have to use this tonight with my hair mask!

From the Lab Hydrating Lip Primer No. 629- This is a bonus/replacement item.  In one of the past boxes, this was included with a different kind of tip.  That tip apparently clogged really easily so From the Lab replaced that tip with a new kind and sent everyone a new one!  Isn't that great?!  Such good customer service.
I also really like this lip primer.  It goes on just like silk and dries perfectly.  It's clear and has absolutely zero tackiness so your gloss, lipstick or stain applies perfectly.  It also prevents feathering which is wonderful so I don't always need to apply lip liner if I use this.

VERDICT: A wonderful box, as always!  This was more product than usual because it was From the Lab's first anniversary and some items have been in previous boxes.  I'm not complaining, I have been impressed with every single product I've received.  They are truly wonderful.

From the Lab does not mean you are a guinea pig, don't worry.  These have all been tested!  From the Lab partners with some of the best independent cosmetic labs in the world to procure their most groundbreaking products before prestige beauty brands introduce these same formulas, patents, and ingredients to the retail market.
There's no fancy packaging and no fancy branding so we get the good stuff for a great price in our boxes!

If you are concerned about ingredients you should know that all From the Lab products are cruelty-free. They only choose products with plant-based and synthetic ingredients that have never been tested on animals.  They also will not choose a product that includes any substance of animal origin.

All From the Lab formulas are free of parabens, benzene, formaldehyde-releasing ingredients, irritants, nanoparticles, nitrosating ingredients, PABA, phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, toluene, and mineral oils and other comedogenic actives that clog pores.

If you would like to sign up, you can do that here!  If you sign up now, you will get this exact box (but likely without the lip primer since that was a replacement)!

It's $29.95/month and if you use GETFREE30, you'll get $30 in store credit that you can use to buy any of the past products available!!  I suggest the Eyelift Primer for sure.  I love it!  You can see that review here.  Since you will be signed up, you'll get member prices, too!

You can cancel anytime AND even more amazing is that if you hate something, you can return it!  They'll issue you store credit and you can buy whatever you want with it!  Not very many subscription box companies do that.  The customer service is phenomenal!

Does everyone else love this subscription as much as I do?  I've had such good experiences with the customer service and with the products.  I've liked everything so far.
