julep | the june box

i introduced y'all to julep last month after receiving my first box. my june box just came in and i had to tell you about it! this month i decided to do some add-ons so i received a couple of extra items!

this month's box came with a smoothing base coat and two shimmery nail colors. they are purple and just the perfect amount of pizzaz. do people still say "pizzaz"? anyway, i sort of love them. i don't really tend to wear purple nail polish, but the lighter shade they sent is perfect for me! oh, and it also came with some pixie sticks. pure sugar.

to summarize, june's box was a perfect purple pizzaz with a little pixie-ness thrown in for fun.


 i love this base coat julep sent! the minerals in the polish fill in the ridges in your nails and create a smooth, matte finish that helps the color last longer AND helps keep your polish from staining your nails!





okay so i mentioned i did some add-ons with this month's subscription. julep allows for you to add products to your monthly box for a fee (or you can use your rewards points if you have any saved up!) i chose the beach tonic dry body oil and bare face cleansing oil.

the beach tonic absorbs instantly and doesn't leave any greasy residue feeling on your skin. plus it smells AMAZING. julep said it's supposed to smell like a breezy citrus and it does not disappoint. i love it and it leaves my skin feeling super soft.

so about this bare face business. i was thinking "oil? for my face? but my face is already oily. this is going to be a disaster." um, i was wrong. i'm sorry i doubted you, julep. it won't happen again. you apply this cleansing oil to your dry face and then wash it off with warm water. it conditions your skin by sinking deep into your pores to dissolve makeup and dirt. my skin felt SO smooth after using this the other night. i'm going to keep using my regular face wash in the mornings, but i'm making this oil my go-to for taking off my makeup and washing my face before bedtime! oh, and did i mention that it smells delish too?




not sure if you want to commit to a monthly subscription? julep will give you your first box free! just use the code FREEBOX. (remember that you will need to call and cancel if you don't want to continue after your first month.)  i was a huge fan of this month's products and can't wait for july to try out some more!

My face is really oily, and I saw a pin one time about oil cleansing. Now I never use store bought washes on my face... but use grapeseed oil. Sounds so weird and counter productive, but it TOTALLY WORKS!!

hmmm that sounds very interesting (re: oil clensing) i'll have to try that since i have some oily skin as well (i've been using a plant based product off of etsy that i am IN LOVE with and will have to share soon!) p.s. love those purples!!

This looks so fun! Getting packages in the mail is basically the best thing ever! One of these days I'm going to get my a Julep box!

Oh my gosh, I am too excited to receive my June box in the mail! I'm an It Girl! I received my May maven box on June 5 (terrible, I know) but it wasn't Julep's fault, they were ready to reimburse me when it arrived and I told them not to worry about it. I love Julep! Your pictures are pretty fabulous, too! I also reviewed my May maven box on my blog today!
