July Julep Maven Box

July 21, 2014

It's hard to believe that another month has already gone by, and it's time again for my Julep Maven box! When I came home and saw that it arrived I thought  "Really? It's already time again?" Not that I'm complaining, because I love getting these boxes, it's just that time goes by so fast and I don't even realize it! 

This month had two nail colors, just like June's box, and a body lotion. 


The Bare Body Milk is really nice. It has a very subtle, clean scent - which I like because sometimes scented lotions can be overpowering. I usually try to go for an unscented, but this is so soft that it's barely noticeable. Just right! 

I've been using pretty thick moisturizers or a coconut oil for my body lotion, so I was immediately unsure when I realized that the consistency was a little thinner than I'm used to; however, it kept my skin moisturized all day! I like that it felt light on the skin. Great balance!


The first nail color was a really pretty bright pink called Vicki. It is a perfect pink for spring and summer. I will definitely get a lot of use from this color!



The second nail color was a nude/peach color named Kelsey. It's not my favorite with my skin tone, but I might be able to wear it on my toes.


See what I mean? Kind of blah.

Even though one of the polishes was a slight miss, overall it was another exciting box! So far I've been pretty impressed with the quality of the products. As for the staying power of the polish (because that is a big deal for me), I think it lasts just as long (and maybe a little bit longer) than other polishes I have.
