March 2013 TopBox

This month none of the Privé TopBoxes really interested me, so I opted for the regular TopBox. I really do like the mystery, the variety and the value of the regular TopBoxes! Here is what I received:

-A 25 ml sample of Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Cream - $5.25
-Two 3mL samples of L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil - $1.25
-A Maskeraide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask (Pre Party Prep: Brighten, Prime & Energize) - $4.99
-A Marc Jacobs Fragrances Sample Pack & Pouch that contained:
                   *A 1.5mL sample of Marc Jacobs Daisy - $2.24
                   *A 1.5mL sample of Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh- $1.72
                   *A 1.5mL sample of Marc Jacobs Lola- $2.36

TOTAL VALUE: + $17.81

Some people are really disappointed that this box didn`t contain any make-up products, but I really like this box. It is a good variety of products and the sample sizes are good. I`ve gotten lots of make-up in the last couple of boxes, so for me this box was a nice change! I am really looking forward to trying out the Maskeraide mask! I also like that they included 3 different scents of Marc Jacobs fragrances, such a great way to see which I like best! I`m also really happy with the hair oil, I am almost finished of my Moroccan Oil and really enjoy trying samples from different brands. These small vials are also great for travel! I haven`t tried many Aveda products, so I'm happy to have gotten one. It has a nice subtle scent that reminds me of ginger. All in all, though the value wasn`t great, the variety made up for it!

March 2013 Julep Maven Box

My March Julep Maven box came this week! This month I chose the Bombshell profile again. My original profile was Classic With A Twist, but i really haven't been liking those boxes. I think that overall this is my favorite collection since I became a Julep Maven  in May 2013. I love the pastel colours! This month, the Bombshell box included the following:

I received the following:
  • Minnie: Warm pastel pink opalescent shimmer
  • Adrianna: Smoky pistachio crème
  • Rock Star Hand Crème: Anti-aging, emollient blend of shea butter, glycerin, coconut oil, and vitamin E keeps hands hydrated, even after washing. This non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula will leave you cheering for an encore. Rock on.
  • Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm

This has been my favorite month in a long time! Julep definitely went above and beyond this month! I love the pastel colours so much! I have used Adrianna and she is lovely on the nails, I think I'll try Minnie later tonight!The Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm smells amazing and makes my lips feels so soft! I have been using my Julep Hand Brightener Lotion a lot lately and am very happy to replace it when it is all gone with this new Rock Star Hand Creme. Love this box!

Julep - Cupid's Mystery Box Feb 2013

My Julep Cupid's Mystery Box arrived last week! Here is what I received:

Camellia Lip Vernis

I absolutely love Carrie & Petra. The lip vernis is also a nice colour. It has a nice scent and texture too! Maria and Morgan look like they are going to be a bit difficult to apply, but they are nice colours. I am very happy with this mystery box! The only thing that disappoints me is that they were supposed to include a mystery holographic or a coupon for a free polish. As you can see, I didn't receive either. I guess I'll e-mail Julep and see what they say! I'm sure they'll make it right! Love this mystery box!
