I must say my walk back from the mailbox was more like a sprint! It’s been nice to receive my Julep Maven monthly box on the same day my husband’s Birchbox Man arrives. For the last 3 months it’s happened!
Getting right down to business, here’s what was in my IT GIRL Julep Maven box for July. Again, ladies it’s 19.99 a month. Best money spent – EVER! I’ve never skipped, switched my box, or sent it to a friend – but isn’t it cool to have those options?! You take a quiz and I swear they get your taste DIALED IN!
Pinky to Pointer finger order: KATE w/ America on tip; MILA solo; DAPHNE w/ Mila on tip; AMERICA solo. These quick swatches were done with just one coat. I’m gonna love my self-mani this week! I’ll be committed to Kate w/ America on the tips until the 4th of July is over. Then I’ll move on to Daphne and Mila. The colors all mix well and I even like how Mila looks solo.
This is what Birchbox Man has going on for July:
This is a nice concept. Once the unwrapping was done, the $10 Quirky Cordies was still in it’s box. My husband sweetly told me I could have it for work. HAHAHAHA! Code for Mr. Clean doesn’t need this and get it the heck out of the house!
But Mr. Clean DID bust a move on the Quirky Wrapster! Look at that!
I did like seeing the Supersmile Whitening System in .21 oz samples of both the Accelerator and Toothpaste. A sucker for toothpaste, I never have less than four tubes open at a time. I hope he shares a round of this with me!
Two .1 oz samples of Benta Berry Super Moisturizing Face Cream with matte, non-greasy promises. He put it on after the shower and thought it felt good on his face. Perfect timing because he got a bit too much sun today. I did a test on the top of my hand and the texture feels good. If all natural creme gets you out of bed, you may want to check this stuff out. It’s very moisturizing.
June Jacobs For Men 3 in 1 Cleanser in a deluxe 1.6 oz sample size. My husband ALWAYS smells good. He’ll use this, but $30 on a body, face, hair wash wouldn’t happen. For one, he doesn’t even have hair! Now if it were shave cream….
This is a good travel size for the next trip.
As if the mail wasn’t already great, I get this little love letter today from the sweetest friend ever. She’s the cancer to my libra. <gush> When I was in 9th grade I had crazy mud-mouth lipstick and lots of black eye liner. One the first day of school she was scared to sit next to me in Spanish class, but the desk next to me was the only one left. Her – with her blonde hair and mud-mouth, and me with my dark hair and mud-mouth, were quickly fond of each other. Best desk she could have ever dropped her scared ass in! We never shut our mud-mouths in class (Señoritas, cállate! Mr. Guttierez used to scream). Our mud-mouths are gloss-mouths these days, but we still don’t cállate!
Happy last day of June. Wishing you lots of pretty, polish, friendship and fireworks of all kinds this July!
