Maven J's Box
I was given the style personality of "Classic with a Twist". I was pretty happy with that one and actually it's pretty descriptive of my style. I'm always drawn to really simple, classic designs and styles, but I always have something funky to accent it, just to throw it a little off and make it different. That goes for my choices no matter whether it's wardrobe, make-up, or decor related.
This box came with a dark orange polish, a sheer green polish with blue shimmer, the Organic Argan Oil and a dropper for the bottle, and a nail file. I'm not too pumped about the orange. It's really similar to my Essie Orange, It's Obvious!, except it pulls a little more red and a hair darker. The other polish is a bit more intriguing though. All the boxes seemed to come with one opaque shade and one sheer, layer-able shade for this month. I love green and I definitely don't have anything similar. It's a bright, sheer green with bright blue shimmer.
Then there's the Argan Oil. I've really been wanting a bottle of this product because I've heard nothing but such good things about it! Seriously, it really lives up to its reputation! I am a complete convert. I've only been using this for a few days so far, but I'll be replenishing my stock when this is gone, for sure. I've been using it on my face. My skin is so soft and not oily at all. Seriously, this stuff goes on and is absorbed immediately so your face doesn't look shiny or feel greasy/oily. And it doesn't clog pores. Usually, I have some issues with breakouts when I try out new products for my face, but after a week with this my skin is smooth with no breakout problems!
For me, I'll definitely call the March box a success! I'm so pumped about it's contents and can't wait to see what's in April's.
Maven K's Box
First off, I love these Maven boxes. The polishes alone are about $15 dollars each, but when you get the monthly box, you get two AND a product for $20. DEAL! My style is considered Boho Glam which I think is kinda spot on. I have actually just ran out of my bottle of argan oil not too long ago so I was pretty much ecstatic about this month's box. Argan oil can be used for a ton of things: Cuticles, rough heels/elbows, split ends. The card that came in the box describes this oil as being "legendary for its healing, conditioning, and anti-aging properties". This stuff is even suitable for oily/acne-prone skin. My favorite is using it for my split ends. It really does work and adds a little shine to the hair. The polishes I got were Alicia and Portia. Alicia is a nice cream light coral. Portia is a sheer teal glitter. I might have a similar coral ( Essie Cute as a Button) but I think that one is a little brighter. I'm excited to try the polishes since for the last box I gave mine to J.
Bonus: We even got a nail file with this box. For someone who does her nails almost everyday, I could always use a new nail file.
