After the debacle in June with the DD Cream & Concealer, I planned on skipping the July box. Then Julep came out with the California Coast Collection and reeled me back in. Damn Julep!
Not only did I get a July box... I upgraded to the full collection!
Julep included a bonus in every box again this month. Green Tea Facial Blotting Papers! These will come in handy during those hot, sweaty summer days.
Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil (3.5 oz, $23)
A blend of lightweight yet nourishing oils that moisturize, condition, and restore elasticity and suppleness to the body.
I really like this! I'm not good about applying moisturizer regularly but this spray makes it very easy. I use it after the shower when my legs are still a bit damp. Spray on, rub in a little and away you go!
Sea Salt Texture Spray (3.9 oz, $22)
We bottled the beach! This paraben-free spray uses sea salt water infused with a combination of marine botanicals that provide intense moisture and essential nourishment. The two-punch combo protects hair from sun damage while creating ocean-kissed, tousled waves.
I have three beach sprays now and this one is my favourite so far. I packed it up and took it to the cottage with me over the weekend.
In order left to right:
Faye - Liquid bronze shimmer ($14)
Adele - Golden reflective top coat ($14)
Angela - Deep sea blue molten ($14)
Blakely - Purple and green molten ($14)
Tracy - Sparkly ocean blue sea salt ($14)
I am most excited for this one! I love the sea salt texture polishes.
Joanna - Lilac frost ($14)
Alaina - Driftwood taupe crème ($14)
Cassie - Soft coral sheer ($14)
Karen - Peach bellini frost ($14)
Nadia - Sun-kissed golden frost ($14)
The Julep upgrade box included 10 polishes and 2 body products, with a retail value of $185. I paid $54.99 for the upgrade box. I'd say that's a pretty good value.
Julep has already released a sneak peek for the August Maven boxes. If you are a foot/pedicure person, you will love this product. I'm really curious about the blister prevention formula.
