Julep Maven Review


I wanted to take a minute to write a better review about my first Julep Maven Box.  Of course anytime a package of nail stuff arrives in the mail I am extremely excited and last night that is how I felt about my box.  I love the color of the two nail polishes that I received, Alfie (purple) and Reese (pink).  I have yet to try them so I can't say whether or not they apply easily or are flawed.   But the are so pretty and I am already planning a stamping design!
I also receive 2 one application samples of Everyday SPF Hand Cream and Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub.  I also received a larger bottle of Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub.  I read on other blogs that people immediately felt and saw an improvement in their hands after I "Hand Facial",  I unfortunately do not agree.  The directions said to use only a dime size amount to scrub your hands.  I did this and did not get the exfoliation I was looking for.  My hands did not feel that much different.  I then used my one application of hand cream.  The cream did not feel very thick but upon the initial application my hands felt smooth and soft.  There was a whole different story in the morning!  My hands were SOOO dry and flaky! I noticed it as soon as I woke up and was very disappointed!  I think I will stick with my cheap lotion that really works and doesn't dry out my hands. 
Even though I gave two items a bad review I am not ready to give up on Julep.  I will try out the polish and wait for my next box.  I am still hopeful!
