July Julep 2013 Modern Beauty Box

OMG! wow i am SO excited right now! I just went to the mail and there she was! This months "maven" box. I typically go with the Boho Glam style but this month I HAD to try both beauty products and i already have the light purple color. 

So this month was themed "The California Coast" It was all about beachy/ surf colors and attitude. This box comes with two full sized beauty products. A beach tonic spray for your body and a sea salt spray for your hair. 

I added on three polishes

From left to Right:
Blakey: a lava like aqua/ purple shimmer color. 
Tracy: a sand finish blue 
Adele: a holographic gold topcoat

I will swatch these lovelies for you in the next post! 

The first thing i had to test out was the Dry body oil. wow wow and wow! I will definitely be purchasing this in the future! Its a spray that is very similar to baby oil but soaks in much faster and the smell is heavenly. I literally can not stop smelling my hand right now. I know thats totally weird, but i am very sensitive to smells and 9/10 beauty products are too strong for me. This one is amazing.  Its hard to describe scent but its light slightly floral and citrus like. Similar to an orange blossom. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It isn't greasy or oily feeling at all. You could use this after the shower and get dressed right away. This is super important for me! I barely have time for a quick shower and rarely ever have time to let heavy moisturizer soak in. . This is a product i would be willing to splurge on once and a while. Its 3.5 ounces so should last me about 2-3 months. 

Im very tempted to try the sea salt spray in my hair right now but I just got out of the shower and did an  argan oil treatment..... :( So I'm hesitant to try it right now. But thats okay i will do a future post about it.  I'm still very excited because I love texturizing sprays. I have very thick wavy hair so i need something to keep it under control or I have a frizzy fluff on my head. 

Julep always includes a little extra surprise and this month it is the Green Tea Facial blotting papers. I personally have never used blotting papers before. But i can think of times in the past that having that would have been of use. So I look forward to using these and I will let you know how that works out. I do like that they are made of wood pulp and green tea. I also like the packaging. 

Let me know if you have any questions about any of this!

** I paid for this with my own money. The opinions here are mine I will ALWAYS disclose if I got something free **


  1. I got Blakely as an add on for July's box too! Brought back some nostalgia from high school - reminds me of the awesome purple/green holographic paint jobs that people used to have on their cars, lol.

    1. haha thats the same reason I got it! I still want that paint job on my car !!

  2. I love, love, love polish but I cannot stand Ipsy's formula. It is just too problematic for me.

    1. A lot of bloggers have pointed that out too! I have 27 bottles of Julep and luckily i only have two colors that seem to NEVER dry.
