It is almost that time again when Julep opens its online doors to us Mavens and offers up a few new goodies and some new polish that we (almost) always need to say yes to! 
I received an email today with this lovely picture in it.
This was also posted on there facebook page.
I checked out Julep's site and it sound good.

So it sounds lovely to me and I am excited, very happy it is a full size also. There have been a few things that were a little small to me in the past. I can't wait to see the colors of this month also, I wonder if they will do a 4th theme or something for it... maybe they will do a mystery box for the holiday.

Are you excited? What do you think the July colors and theme will be?

  1. I was very excited until I started reading the ingredients! I didn't want to assume that just because they sound like a scary science experiment, they're automatically bad for me. But I started running them through the Environmental Working Group's ingredient database, and it was like... cyclopentasiloxane (julep spelled it wrong!) piles up in your body and has been shown to cause tumors, cancer, and endocrine disruption in moderate doses in animals... Dimethicone is suspected to be an environmental toxin in Canada.... and Phenoxyethanol is considered to be hazardous to use around your mouth in the European Union because it can be a major irritant.

    Overall, not as bad as it sounds, but not something I want to spray on myself all the time!

    It also bothers me because I expect Julep to create products that are more natural than this, especially something that seems as simple as a spray-on oil. Looking at this product's ingredients, versus the way they're selling it, makes me think I need to look more seriously at their other makeup products. What are they slipping into the hand creams and lipsticks that I don't know about?

    Oh... I'm also not thrilled that it lists "Parfum", because in my experience that usually refers to a chemical fragrance. I try not to wear those because there are so many people who are allergic to them. But I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt - it COULD just be essential oils....

  2. Also, amen to it being full size. They really should have been clear that the DD creme was intended to be a one-use sample; they would have saved a lot of money and crankiness!
