This month, I think Julep outdid themselves. When I saw the preview for the July box I knew I had to have ALL of it! I've never upgraded before, but am super glad I did. The collection is called the California Coast collection. All the colors make you think of a warm summer day chilling on the beach rolling into a cool evening relaxing with friends around a bonfire. Of course here in Florida, you cant do bonfires on the beach, but boy I wish we could! The collection also came with two products, which I will honestly say I am glad were not makeup. The two products were a Sea Salt Texture Spray and Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil.
When my box arrived in the mail I was so excited to see the long heavy box, I knew there were goodies inside! Upon opening the box I came up a pack of Facial Oil Blotting papers which I have not used yet, but am excited to use since I usually get excess oil throughout the day. As I pulled out one polish after another I got more and more excited! I have to say I am so in love with each polish! There is honestly not one single polish I don't like! They are all so beautiful! I really wanted to paint my nails using all of the polishes, but couldn't figure out what to do. I then decided I would do/try a half moon mani with them, having the warm colors on one hand and the cool ones on the other. I quickly realized that that wasn't going to fly when I got to the second color. So, I decided to do a bit of a skittle mani. I cannot express how impressed I am with this collection, every color went on flawlessly they were practically one coaters. I fell in love every time I brushed on a new color! It sounds cheesy I know, but its the truth!!! Now on to the products. I think this is the first time I am going to state my opinion about something other than nail polish on here! I used the sea salt spray a couple days ago and thought it was great. I used it on damp hair, I spritzed it a few times, then ran a comb through my hair for even distribution and scrunched it a bit with my hands. I have VERY, I am not kidding, VERY thick wavy hair that likes to frizz easily. So, after I am done scrunching I try my best not to touch my hair for the rest of the day which is hard for me since I always am worried about how it looks! The wave held up throughout the day and the frizz stayed at bay. I am eager to use the product again. As for the body oil, I just followed the instructions and enjoyed! It smelled good and made my skin soft! I was beyond impressed with this months Julep box and I hope they keep it coming!
