The July Julep Maven theme is “California Coast” and I think it may be one of my most favourite collections so far! I love the soft beachy colours and had a hard time deciding on which box I wanted but decided to go with Classic with a Twist and added Karen from boho glam on as well.
Karen (Boho Glam) ($14 / Maven Price: $11.20): A really pretty peach bellini frost. I haven’t used it yet but I am so in love with the shimmery look of this shade. Perfect for summer.
Cassie (Classic with a Twist) ($14 / Maven Price: $11.20): Is a soft coral sheer and is my favourite from the box. It’s just so pretty. Since it is a sheer it took a few coats to get it to the level of colour I wanted which is the only downside.
Alaina (Classic with a Twist) ($14 /Maven Price: $11.20): Is a Driftwood taupe crème which isn’t normally a colour I would gravitate to but I loved the combination of Cassie with Alaina.
I really loved using Cassie with Alaina together, it’s a really pretty and fun combination that is still totally work and age appropriate.
Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil ($23 /Julep Maven $18.40):
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.
Features & Benefits:
Cotton seed oil, rich in cell nourishing vitamin E
Sunflower oil deep conditions with linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid
Absorbs instantly, and leaves a satin finish- never a greasy residue
Lightly fragranced with a pleasant blend of citrus and floral notes
Fine mist spray provides an easy application

This smells so amazing… like the scent of citrus on a beachy breeze. I thought when I first sprayed it that it would be super oily but it actually works into your skin really well and leaves you feeling hydrated and smooth. This will definitely be a re-buy for me, I absolutely love using it after the shower.
Green Tea Facial Blotting Papers (Estimated at $5): These aren’t online yet but this includes 40 blotting sheets.
Over all I was really happy with this box, nothing included was a “dud” and totally worth the $19.99 + $5 for Karen. I’ve had the polish on for almost a week now without a top coat and it hasn’t chipped or peeled like some of the other Julep polishes I have do after 1 day of wear. Excellent!
