I have heard so many things and Julep and the Maven boxes that I had to see for myself what all the talk was about.
Julep Maven It Girl Maven Box is a beauty editor sneak peek box that contains the latest and great in manicure and pedicure products, and nail polishes that are trending at the moment. I got a Maven Box in the mail, let’s check out what I got shall we?
My Maven Box contained the following:
- Julep Zoe nail vernis
- Julep Samantha nail vernis
- Glycolic hand scrub
- Sample of hand scrub
- Sample of SPF 30 hand cream
One use of the glycolic hand scrub and I fell in love! I have honestly been looking for a scrub for quite some time, because the one that I have (Yes to Carrots) is so greasy after rinsing. So this was right on!
The first thing that will draw you in to this scrub is the scent- bright and citrusy orange oil. Apricot seeds and glycolic acid work together to double exfoliate your hands, removing all dead skin and leaving soft, baby smooth hands.
The only downside of this is the price. A whopping $32.00 for a full sized bottle. Because of the price, I would be forced to only use it once a day or so, but for someone that can afford it, and looking for a good hand scrub staple? Yeah this one is it. You will get instant results.
Because your hands need SPF protection, Julep has created a hand cream for everyday use, that will not only make the hands soft and moisturized, but protect them from the harmful rays of the sun. Being that this was a small sample, I can’t really share my experience with it. But after one use (right after I used that scrub) the results were promising.
This SPF 30 handcream retails for $28.00.
Now on to the nail swatches. I thought these were two very pretty nail shades. All polishes are ‘3 free’.
Zoe is a fall appropriate shade. Golden Amber with a frost finish. I hate frosts, but I love this color. This is two coats, it’s kinda sheer so I would suggest three or maybe four coats.
Samantha is not so fall appropriate if you follow nail trends. If you are like me, you could care less. Samantha is a hot neon pink with a crème finish. No glitter, no frost, no shimmer. This made me very very happy.
