After some strange issues with them getting here, I finally got my July Julep Maven box & Add-ons! And on the same day I got a RAOK from a wonderful lady in a Facebook swap group I frequent. It's OPI's Toucan do it if you try, and I've been searching high and low for this baby! It's just as amazing as I hoped, AND matches the containers for Julep's Bare Body products almost exactly! Made for a great photo op! [Below]
The five polishes to the farthest left are my Beau's picks from this batch.
In order L-R are:
I could nooooot be more excited to see these in real life. They're sooo close to how I imagined them, which always adds to the excitement. Although, that might just be the extra 2ish weeks I had to wait >_>
The three products are the NEW Bare Body Polish, Bare Body Milk, and the wonderful as always Mint Condition Pedi Creme.
The Bare Body Polish is described as:
"An invigorating scrub that polishes away the rough stuff standing between you and smooth, beautiful skin. The creamy formula is packed with tiny spheres that exfoliate without scratching—and unlike salt and sugar scrubs, it doesn’t crumble under (water) pressure."
What makes it work?
Best of all, it carries Julep's signature "summery" scent! It's a light scent with just a few hints of floral, and an indescribably sunny scent added. I'm not one to favor florals, but this is light enough that I really do love it - And the Milk, which has the same scent! ;D
I've tried both Bare Body products, and they both are a vast improvement on Julep's old scrub-type products [I'm looking at you, Pomegranate and Grapefruit body scrubs!!], which were [and are, since I still have them >_>] extreeeemely oily. As in, fall down in the shower oily. Or get stuck in the bathroom until you have to yell for 5 minutes for someone else in the house to come rescue you because you can't grip the doorknob and soap/water just made it worse oily. Neither of which are fun; I Promise. These, however, have no such problems!! The exfoliant in the Bare Body Polish is subtle like a raw sugar or salt scrub, but just as effective, if not more so!
