My Julep Box

Hello, hello......How is everybody? I have been missing in action for a while and I want to apologized. Many things have happened lately and the most excited of all: I graduated last Friday with a degree in Business Management! Yay....I feel very proud of myself. I still have a long way to go: I want to keep studying, start my own business, etc. I feel really optimist about the future :)

Today, I received my first Julep Maven box (a graduation gift to myself) and I want to share my thoughts with you.  I know that many of you know that Julep Maven is a subscription program that specializes on trendsetting new nail colors and beauty products. 
You pay $19.99 a month and you received two or three nail polishes and two beauty products and promotions. I think that $19.99  a month is a little expensive, but you can skip a month buy canceling your box between the 20th and the 24th of each month. 
This month, I received these two gorgeous nail colors in Lily and Courteney. I love the Lily color and I think that it will be my go to nail polish for the summer. The Courteney color is like a lime green. It's cute, but not really my favorite. I will pass it down to my mom, she will love it!
I also got this Julep sunscreen with SPF 30 for face and hands. Just in time because I was almost out of  sunscreen. I started to notice a few sun spots on my hands and I think it is because I always neglect to apply sun screen on them. So ladies and gentlemen, please don't forget to protect your hands from the sun by applying sunscreen when exposed to the sun.
The description product says that this sunscreen has vitamin E, that it hydrates the skin and strengthens the nails. Also it is parabens free. I am very excited about this product. I will do a future review about it, soon.
Finally, I aslo got this lip balm with SPF 15. It has a Vanilla Mint scent (smells delicious) and it is very creamy. I also like that it has organic ingredients like organic extra virgin olive oil and organic palm oil. We have to take care of our lips, not just by applying sunscreen, but also making sure that what we apply on them do not have dangerous ingredients, like lead. Did you know that the average woman will eat 90 pounds of lipstick in her life? It is scary to think that it could be 90 pounds of lead :(
I also want to mention that the packaging was very delicate. All came in a black carton box very nicely wrap in an orange paper. I think that is very thoughtful of Julep Maven. It was very exciting to open my package.
I hope that you enjoy this post and if you are subscribed to Julep Maven, please let me know what you think about their products and their subscription.

Hasta Pronto.

  2. So happy to hear you graduated with a degree in Business Management. Congratulations. :) I am pretty sure you will one day be that successful entrepreneur you want to be in the near, near future. :) I feel the same way too about studying. I want to keep doing it. It's hard work, but it really pays off. :)

    Amazing Julep box. I've seen this all over YouTube and the nail polishes look so pretty. I like the colors you have. Especially that green color. So refreshing and summery. :) I'm surprised Julep carries lip balm too. I always thought they just have hand and nail products.

    Hope you enjoy the goodies in your new box. :)

    PS: Sorry to hear you haven't found a swimsuit yet. I have to admit. It's not easy looking for one. It takes me forever to find one.
