Julep Maven

I saw Julep on one of the youtube ads beside the videos. Well I shouldn't say one... I saw them on many. So I went to there site and saw Julep Maven! Which is a monthly subscription site like Glymm but with mainly nail polish!
I got my box for October but skipped November because I needed to switch my credit card :( But hopefully I can do this before December!

Julep actually supports girls everywhere by donating $1 from every nail polish sold to organizations that support women through the Powered By Girlfriends program. But onto the Julep Maven part!

As a Julep Maven you get: 

      - Over $40 worth of products each month customized in a gift-able beauty editor Sneak Peek Box
      - New, never before released colours and treatments FIRST to you
      - Hit and cult favourites
      - Invitations to exclusive Julep Maven online events
      - 20% off all julep.com purchases
      - Free Shipping!

Each month you can also request a shelf pull (requesting new products to receive), send your box to a friend or skip the month. You get an email on the 20th of each month will a preview of your upcoming box (in case you don't like the colours or products), you have by the 25th to shelf pull, send to a friend or skip a month. Julep then charges your card on the 27th of each month. My box took almost 2 weeks to get to me.

When you first make an account, you take a "quiz" so they know what category to put you in each month to send you colours you might like the most. I got the American Beauty!

My October Box:

Julep "Facial for Hands" Glycolic Hand Scrub: this scrub is really soft and moisturizing. I sometimes use it after I wash my hands for a super soft feel to my hands. The "chunks" in the scrub aren't too harsh but hard enough to get off the dead skin.
Full Price: $32 for 3 fl oz.

Julep Essential Cuticle Oil: I really like the packaging of this. It has a roller ball so it is very easy to use and also you don't waste product. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment on how it works :(
Full Price: $18 for 0.29 fl oz.

Nail Polish: I painted my nails briefly with these 2 colours, but haven't really given it enough thought to review. I like the colours though!
Full Price: $14 for 0.27 fl oz.

So that is all I got in my box!
I actually ordered more nail polish from them, so I will do a video when that comes!

Fortune Cookie Soaps

Hey Guys! Sorry this took forever to post :( I either forgot, or something would come up when I planned to post this!
But this post is on Fortune Cookie Soaps!
I absolutely love them, and cannot wait to order again! My boyfriend loves them too, so I think this is going to be our favourite soap from now on!

I got 4 soaps and a gelato bath bomb! The scents I got were:
Takes the Cake
The Candy Addict
Caramel Apple
Pink Lemonade
and the bath bomb is in Jolly Peach

Picture Time!

Takes the Cake: this is supposed to smell like wedding cake, but to me it was just a buttery scent. This was my boyfriend's favourite though~

 the glitter:

The Candy Addict: This is supposed to smell like candy, I would assume. But to me, this smelt like laundry soap :S

 the size:

Caramel Apple: this smells AMAZING! The look of it is also very appealing! It smells like apple and caramel, and the "caramel" has the texture and look of real caramel! 

Pink Lemonade: This one smells absolutely amazing! It is sooo strong and it smells exactly like pink lemonade, soooo good! :)

the glitter:

Jolly Peach Gelato: The gelato bath bombs look amazing! I don't want to use it because it looks so real! And this one has an amazing scent :) I would buy it again, but it is not on the site :(

I loved all the products, the soaps work great! I would order from them again, but get some different scents to try out! :)

October Glymm Box

Hey Guys! Sooooo according to Canada Post, I was supposed to get my Glymm box on the 14th... but it wasn't in my mailbox. :( But I got it today, and I didn't mind waiting after I saw what was in it! It had 2 full size products and a realllllllly expensive one. :) And also, one I have wanted to try ever since I heard about it. :) So now for the pictures! :)

the new box is gets mailed in:


The halloween packaging:

The Glymm message:

The product card:

The products in the box!

Caudalie: Premier Cru Cream: this is basically a face lotion that you use daily to help nourish and firm your skin. It is also anti-aging. It smells like normal lotion :) The sample has a super tiny hole for the product to come out, so i am going to guess you don't need a lot. Especially at $150 you wouldn't want to use a lot. :P
Full Price: $150 for 50mL (the card says 3.2g but I think that might be wrong :S)

Lise Watier: Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss: an amazing colour jumbo lip pencil pretty much. It is a nice bright red/pink colour with red sparkles in it. It definitely spices up a look. It is great for the new trend this fall of bright red lips. You might need to wear a lipgloss over top if your lips are dry since you can see the chapped lips. 
Full Size: $ 18 for 2.8g (this one is a full size)

Principessa: Bacio Lip Balm: the is a huge size lip balm. It smells like shea butter, probably because that is what is in it. :P It feels really good on your lips, but once it starts to soak in, my lips still have the dry feeling when rubbed together. :( Maybe after using it for a bit, that will go away. :)
Full Size: $11 for 0.5 fl. oz. (this one is full size)

Blinc: Blinc Mascara:  this is a mascara that is supposed to tube your lashes, not just coat them. You put it on like normal mascara and it is not supposed to flake, run, clump or smudge. It is also supposed to be water proof. :) Every girls perfect mascara. You are only supposed to take it off with warm water and a little pressure, and the tubes are supposed to come off your lashes whole. It looks like your lashes came out in the sink.
Full Price: $30 for 0.21 fl. oz. 

And of course.. the jelly bellies! :) They are black and orange for halloween! :D
