Julep Maven July 2013 California Coast Collection

This month I decided to go against my profile style which is “It-girl” and decided to go with the Bombshell box this month. I really wanted to get the entire set but was good and restrained from spending the $55.00. I did however end up adding a nail polish that was worth $4.99 but I ended up using 750 “Jules” points that I’ve saved up and it was free!

Maven Price: $18.40

Here’s the description from Julep.com:

What It Is: A blend of lightweight yet nourishing oils that moisturize, condition, and restore elasticity and suppleness to the body.

What It Does: Absorbs instantly and leaves a satin finish without a greasy residue. Treatment mist contains a blend of cotton seed oil, rich in cell nourishing vitamin E, and sunflower oil-  for deep conditioning and softening of even the driest skin.

How To Use: Mist onto slightly damp skin. Massage in thoroughly. Use whenever and whenever skin feels dry. Can be used under lotion for more skin conditioning. Do not use on face.

I am very satisfied with my box this month. I was thinking about skipping this month until I got the email and got to see my picks for this month! I’m glad I ended up getting the box! What did you think about this month? Box Value without the Maven discount was $70 (including my add-on this month)

This week has been absolutely CRAZY! There will be new posts up soon, I promise. I should be getting my June Glossybox on Monday. It’s funny, Julep shipped from Washington State on the 27th and Glossybox shipped on the 26th from New Jersey (MAYBE 5-6  hours away) and is still not here. Kudos to Julep for fast shipping and stress-free experience. I’m kind of on my last straw with Glossybox. Hopefully the American Beauty Glossybox is worth it, that’s all I have to say!

 

XOXO,

Erin

  1. Oh those blotting papers sound nice! I like how Julep always throws in a little surprise in their monthly boxes. Im starting to wish I hadn’t skipped this month.

    • I was honestly kind of disappointed with June’s mystery boxes that I was going to boycott and not get this month’s box, but I caved and it actually ended up being a good box! Not sure about the “beach tonic” but everything else was great. The blotting papers were a pleasant surprise!

  2. A good haul this month! Love the pretty lilac Joanna nail polish, green tea blotting papers. and quote! 🙂
