In 2014, the men in your life will start stealing your beauty products -because they're so ready to leave behind the world of soap-on-a-roap and Head & Shoulders. OK, so maybe men won't start sporting nail polish at the office like we joked last year, but that day may not be far off. Already, men nick their wives' concealer to mask eye circles and wrinkles, especially those looking to appear younger in the workplace. And in 2014, women's skin and hair products will trend toward natural and chemical-free, so men will more willingly borrow cleansers, exfoliating Konjac sponges, creams and conditioners that don't seem 'girly'. We also expect to see the launch of more unisex beauty products that could go either way - men or women.

Uh, WTH?

 

I can't even get my boyfriend to use conditioner unless its a 2 in 1 product, fat chance of him ever going to the trouble of stealing my beauty products, LOL.

I can't get my husband to use conditioner either.  I finally convinced him last winter to use conditioner on his beard when he showers, and he did, twice.  He said he liked the way it felt, but it was too much for him.  I guess he meant it was another extra step in the shower.  LOL

I tried to get my husband to use a scrub and some body butter because he was complaining about dry skin. Yeah it was to much work for him

I have tried so hard to get my husband to try my Lush lip scrub.  He is dead-set against it and won't even try it. :rolleyes:

Exactly I feel like not matter how "un-girly" products are my fiancé still won't use them because of the extra steps, he just doesn't wanna deal with it. I just think the whole paragraph is so bizarre, "the dishy dad"??! Haha what?! It would also be a cold day in hell before he borrowed my concealer. But who knows if his office hires a hot new chick he may be inclined to "look younger in the workplace." I know he doesn't represent every guy but this seems a little much, to me and the guys I know at least!!

Just tell him no more kissing until he sloughs all that gross dead (and scratchy) skin. It worked for me, lol.

I really liked the satin finish of Mae, so I wouldn't mind more of that finish. I just hope there is a good combo in one of the boxes because this will be 3 in a row for me if I take a box.  Gotta love free polish!
Do you feel like it really showed ridges? Maybe Julep will do a ridge-filler with all the satin and silk and matte finishes. I think it would be cool if they tried to focus on creating more nail-related items I go with the boxes. Maybe like a set of great files for mult purposes with some kind of carrying case, maybe a polish case where the polishes were visible from the outside of the case.

For the beauty product (not sure if this qualifies as a beauty item though) I would like a nail polish thinner to thin out all my thick Julep polishes. Many of them tend to run thick and I could really use some thinner, but if they included that as the beauty item, they may be admitting that some of their formulas are too thick lol :--

I didn't feel like it showed ridges. I liked the satin finish much more than I thought I would.  I haven't tried the silk finish (with Julep) but it seems like it would show ridges more than satin because it has more shimmer to it.

 

I would love it if Julep would do a set of files.  That's a great idea.

I'm a new Julep subscriber and also hoping for something pink or red for February...Although I'm a bit surprised they did the boudoir collection in January, you'd think that theme would match better with Valentines.

 

When does Julep usually release the colours for the next month?

The 20th of each month the new collection comes out.

New Julep subscriber here, too!  My welcome box was January, so my first "real" box will be February.  I'd really like Valentine's inspired colors: reds, burgundies, pinks, creams.  Maybe even a dove gray.

 

What do you guys think of Julep's top and base coats?  I almost always use base and top coat, but pretty much every brand just wants to peel right off.

I find that Julep's base coat has been out of stock for awhile now.

 

The Freedom Polymer top coat is great though.

I love the freedom polymer topcoat. It makes my nails hard and shiny, and dries super fast...like in 5 minutes I can start using my hands again and not worry about smudges. Haven't used the topcoat.

I hate their top coat. It causes major shrinkage for me.

oh forgot to say what I don't like about it...the black bottle. It's so annoying because I can't see how much is left. Wish they would put it in a clear bottle! I just used it and I think I'm getting to the bottom of the bottle but don't want to toss it if there's still some in there! The bottle design is cute but obnoxious at the same time, it doesn't seem like the brush is long enough to reach the bottom.

I think the bottle is black to block the sunlight because it is harden by the light.

Found a youtube video this morning for the It Girl February box.  Oscar-inspired.  Her box has a burgundy shimmer, a navy/teal, and a silvery holographic.  It's kind of hard to tell exactly because the video lighting isn't geat.

That's last year's collection. The very first tipoff: This box was received because the subscriber forgot to skip. The window for this February won't be opening until Monday.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
