December's Julep Maven Box

I finally received my Julep Maven box. I love getting nail mail. It's like Christmas. This one was even more like Christmas with the gorgeous interior wrapping they did. As you will see in the pictures they put everything in a really pretty red & white snowflake bag with a big white ribbon. It looked just like a Christmas gift. It was so so cute. The packaging gets five stars!

I got Helena & Fast Dry Too coat in my box. I'm really excited to try the top coat to see if it compares to the others I have. I will let you know how it compares. I have similar colors to Helena but not sure if I have anything exactly like it. So that is good. All in all thumbs up!

I also received a Pomegranate body creme. I have been using it on my hands the past few days & am in love with the texture, consistency & the way it moisturizes. It soaks in well, is hydrating & doesn't leave my hands greasy which I like. When I first put it on there is a light scent of the Pomegranate & Papaya as stated on the label. After a while of having it on it has a strong smell of liquor. I'm not a drinker so I can't tell you what type of liquor that's just the only thing I can compare it to. I'm not really fond of the after scent of this at all. It's almost to strong to even bare. I guess if maybe I put it on a body part that was further away from my nose it wouldn't be so bad. I would really love it if they change the scent to Coconut with no after liquor scent. So that's my opinion on the creme. I'll still use it cuz I do like how it makes my skin feel just won't use it so close to my nose.

They even thru in an extra gift this month. I received a pot full of iridescent glitter. It's very pretty & will look gorgeous on the right color of nail polish & under the right lighting.

I tried to take a picture at the right angel so you could see the lustrous colors in the glitter. I hope this helps you get the just of how pretty it is.

I'm excited to see what everybody received in their Maven box this month. If you received this one I would love to know what you think of the Pomegranate Creme. Do you smell the liquor smell or something else? Or am I just crazy? Don't answer that. Hehe
Thanks for stopping by. Much love.

Sincerely From the Heart,
