Free samples for YOU!

Hi! I have tried most of the samples I received in my Beauty Army January 2012 box. There are two that I really didn't care for. The first was the LaRocca pumpkin scrub and the second is the Rose Hips Black Soap.

I explain why I don't like them in this video:

Do you want them? I was going to throw them away but thought it was a waste. Leave me a message or a comment and I'll send them to one of you. Yes, they're used but I didn't do anything gross with them! :) Oh, and yes, I will mail them to you at my own cost so it's truly free for you!

Review: LaRocca Pumpkin Body Scrub

I was not as impressed with this body scrub as I was hoping to be. For starters, the smell is WAY too strong. I felt like a giant pumpkin kicked me right in the face. The good news is the smell does not last. I also didn't feel like it scrubbed very well. My skin didn't feel any different after I used it. Oh well! That's what samples are for! I will not be purchasing this product.

Julep American Beauty December 2011

Two weeks ago, I received my first Julep box and boy was I excited!!! It came with two nail polishes, Jennifer and Demi, and they were perfect for my style. It also come with a delightful hand scrub.

I was very impressed with the long-lasting capabilities of this polish. Usually my polish chips within a day, but these looked good for at least five days. (I'm pretty rough on my hands!)

Demi is a beautiful red. It's a very deep color that seems to change in shifting light. For example, in darker light, it almost looked chocolate brown, but in bright sunlight, it looked bright red. I LOVE IT.

Jennifer is a nice quiet pink. It would be a beautiful color to wear as the base for a french manicure or for a nice, work-appropriate all-over color.

The apricot scrub (not pictured. Imagine a white tube with black lettering) is delightful. I couldn't stop rubbing my hands after I used it for the first time! They felt so soft!!!

I am very excited to see what this company has to offer in the future. I can't wait for my January box!!
