October's From the Lab - a monthly subscription box

I am a huge fan of monthly subscription boxes and I know a lot of you are too. I love when my Ipsy bag comes it feels like Christmas morning every time, is that how you feel too?  I'm very excited to tell you about a new unique monthly beauty subscription box named From the Lab.

This is not your ordinary subscription boxes the products you get are new innovative products so they  are not your everyday brands. From the Lab goes directly to the source, partnering with the best independent cosmetic labs in the world to procure their most ground-breaking products before prestige beauty brands introduce these same formulas, patents, and  ingredients to the retail market. When you subscribe to From the Lab the future of beauty is delivered to your door for a very special price. When you subscribe, the first week of each month you will receive up to three innovative beauty selections.

They can give you the products to you for such a low cost because they have no expensive packaging, no lengthy distribution process which means members have access to these luxury beauty products at up to 80% off the projected retail price and up to eighteen months before these innovations are made available on the U.S. market.

From the Lab only uses a conscientious selection of plant-­based and synthetic ingredients that are suitable for every skin type, and all of our key actives and ingredients are clinically tested to ensure stability and compatibility.All of our products are formulated to provide effective concentrations of the most advanced compounds and actives available.

The product I received in the box From the Lab sent me to review was an AM/PM Cleanser No586 the card with it said "is too much water dehydrating your skin?" That question makes sense if you are in water too long you look a little like a prune due to dehydration. So maybe washing your face everyday, twice a day is partly to blame for dryness. The AM/PM cleanser is designed to clean your face without washing it and this formula has never been available to woman in the US until now.  AM/PM Cleanser removes makeup, cleanses, tones, and treats your skin all in one step.

I was intrigued by the thought that to much water may be drying out my face but I won't lie to y'all, all I thought was WOW one step. I don't have to grab soap, run the water until it's warm, get the toner. A girl could get used to that and what a great way to save time in the morning.

I was, however, very skeptical  about being able to clean my face but hey, I've been wrong a couple of times. The first night I had no make up on so I just soaked a cotton ball in the AM/PM Cleanser No586 and ran it over it my face. When I saw the dirt it removed I was impressed because I could SEE it working.  So the next day I "braved" it and removed my full face of makeup. Again I was very impressed, it took a few cotton balls full of the cleanser but it removed all of my makeup and my face felt refreshed like I would have washed it and used toner. I applied my usual moisturizer and my face felt great.

This product is amazing, it has a smell that was a little strong for me but it was very pleasant. I really liked this product and would purchase it again especially for those lazy days.  I have seen some of the past From the Lab boxes and think this would be a great subscription box to invest in. Do keep in mind this box is not about getting lots of products for your money, instead it's about getting high qualify skin or hair care at an affordable price. I can't wait to see what is in next month's From the Lab box!!

New members can have From the Lab delivered right to their door for only $19.95, that is a 33% savings and you are guaranteed that price for life!!

I was sent this box complimentary in exchange for an honest, uncompensated review but as always, the opinion is all mine.
