September Julep Maven!

Oh my goodness I can't believe it's September already! Where did the summer go??? Well I got my Julep Maven box on Monday, and it was still August! Shipping time is incredible, I received an email on Friday August 26th saying it shipped and my box got here on Monday August 29th...fast shipping makes me happy! This is the American Beauty Fall Essentials box. I received three items: Julep Boris & Nicole, Essential Cuticle Oil and Everyday SPF Hand Cream, retailing at $60 total and I only paid $20! You've probably heard of Julep Maven by now, but if you haven't you can read my post about all it's amazing benefits here. Now look at this color, it has the season fall written all over it!

Julep Boris & Nicole - Isn't this the most perfect fall nail polish color ever?!? It reminds so much of leaves changing colors, I want just want to jump into a huge pile of them! I love this and don't have anything similar. It is described as "luscious orange hues with sophisticated brown undertones." I'd say it's a shimmery auburn brown. The formula was excellent and opaque in two coats.
Julep Essential Cuticle Oil - I'm really loving this stuff! I usually use creams but I feel like this oil really penetrates my cuticles well. Contains all-natural blend of essential oils and Vitamin E to hydrate and strengthen nails and cuticles. I love the roller-ball application too, it is so convenient and extremely easy to apply...no mess and no using your fingers! It smells nice and clean, kind of like a pine tree which I don't mind! The size is perfect too, small enough so you can always have it in your purse!
Julep Everyday SPF 30 Hand Cream - I am very happy to get the full size of this! I kind of already reviewed the sample size I got but I'll say it again! First of all I had been searching around drugstores for a hand cream with SPF and they are very hard to find! There are plenty of face and body sunscreens but none for just hands! I don't like to use regular sunscreen on my hands because they are greasy and I don't like the feeling it leaves, I just want to wipe it off immediately! Well my problems are solved with this Julep Hand Cream :D The consistency is really smooth, sinks into your skin and most importantly no greasy feeling! Now my hands are hydrated AND protected from the sun! The cost of this fairly small tube is $28, I would never pay that much so I'm glad they included it in the box!

That's it! Even though there was only one polish in this box I am still very pleased with everything. What's your favorite fall nail polish color?
