julep maven, powered by girlfriends.

A little over a month ago I found out about a company called Julep Maven. They specialize in nail products for women, such as trendy new nail colors & mani/pedi care products! The coolest thing about Julep Maven is that they allow their 'girlfriends' to get a sneak peek of their new products each month sent straight to their door. They way it works is you sign up and pay $20 a month for over $40 worth of products, which you can cancel, send to a friend, or suspend for a month at any time. They have you take a Julep Maven Style Quiz when you sign up that helps them get an idea of your style & then each month they send you a pre-shelf pull email of that months sneak peek box. If you like what they show you, well you are good to go. If it isn't the color you were looking for -- then you can get a new shelf-pull! Amazing right?! Well I decided to sign-up & try it out since I love taking care of my nails, but also because there was no commitment & that I could cancel or suspend at any time. Since I signed up in August, I have already received two Julep Maven boxes full of awesome products that I am going to share with you!

Julep Maven -- August Box Contents:
1. Facial for your hands Glycolic Scrub $32: This orange-scented scrub is auhmazing. It has apricot seeds which help with exfoliation. Absolutely love the way it makes me hands feel!
2. Nail Color {left to right} Carrie, Alfre, & Nail Therapy {not a color}: These colors are perfect for fall. According to JM, Carrie {$14} is a cotton-candy pink, & helps you embrace your girlie side :] Alfre {$14} is was of the Fall Sneak Peek colors & it is not yet up on their website, but it is a silverish-grey color, again perfect for fall. The color is not too dark, but just enough edge! Nail Therapy {$16} is a '3-free' basecoat that contains Vitamin E, which helps protect dry, brittle, peeling nails. I have noticed great results from using it, especially since I have naturally dry & brittle nails.

**all the nail-polish is '3-free' 

Julep Maven -- September Box Contents:
1. Everyday SPF Hand Scream {SPF30} $28: This unscented hand cream is great & with the SPF is helps protect your hands from UVA & UVB which is important to prevent anti-aging. Hands are even more prone to anti-aging then the face, because your hands experience the most wear&tear & exposure to unprotected sunlight. I only received this Box on Thursday, but so far I have already used my hand lotion multiple times & love it!
2. Nail Color // Toni $14: Featured in Luck Magazine, this grey-purple color is one of my favorites & can't wait to wear it this fall!
3. Julep Essential Cuticle Oil $18: This little bottle contains perfection with its roller-ball applicator & hint of oils that help hydrate your nails. I am already in love with this bottle & have decided to keep it in my purse so if I even need some quick hydration for my nails it's a simple roll away!
4. Crystal Nail File $14 & Comb, Mirror, & Lint Roller All-In-One: These were were a couple of unexpected extras that I received in my box that are perfect to keep in my purse! & who doesn't like extras? i know right. ha But already loving the crystal nail file, since I am always buying regular nail boards which don't seem to last as long as I would like!
