Free Summer Brights Box from Julep

I finally decided to give in and try Julep Maven.  I’ve been on the fence for it for a long time, but when I saw the really big box of goodies they’re giving away to new Mavens for Summer I jumped on it.  Check out the unboxing!



Today I’m doing a beach theme on my nails, so I am using the first shade from the video for my sand.  My next Maven box is going to be shipping out next month.  There’s a bright pink in my “Bombshell” that’s darker than the one I received in the brights box, but it’s close enough that I decided to swap it out for a new vibrant green from the “Boho Glam” box.  I didn’t realize you could mix and match, but I adore the fact that you can.

This is definitely a subscription I can get behind. Do you want a free box too? Simply go to this link and use the code HELLOYOU to get your own Summer Brights box (like what I received) FOR FREE!

First Impression Friday – Exfolimate

I’m all about finding new beauty gadgets.  When I was younger, I couldn’t use any kind of exfoliating products because my skin was so sensitive.  There was no amount of concealer that could stop the redness my first time using an exfoliating scrub.  This little tool is for exfoliating while you’re hanging out in the shower.  There’s one for the face and one for the body, but I just decided to show the face one in action.

Would you try something like this? I’m still a little creeped out by the amount of “face goo” I pulled off even though I had just washed my face.
