First Impression: Julep Luxe Repair Skin Serum


Happy Thanksgiving beauties!

I hope you’re enjoying this day of rest, great food, and time to catch up with family. May all the things you’re grateful for this year bring you many more happy moments in the next.

Sorry for the late update but I wanted to be sure of my first impression before putting finger to keyboard.

Here we go! Julep is a great service with many great products, including their nail polishes. While this skin serum is another hit for them, it’s not quite a home run for me.

After washing and exfoliating my face, I applied one pump of this serum to my face. One pump is perfectly adequate for the face (at least mine), in fact if left my face feeling a bit like chicken grease. I did my routine right before hitting the sack and the greasiness of my face left me feeling like I could actually be inviting my face to breakout even more.

Of course this is my first time having used this product so I will try it at least 2 more times but based on my first experience I’m not exactly looking forward to it. And that’s how I know that I love a product and how it’s working: if I just naturally reach for it rather than force myself to use it.

While I’m a little disappointed, my mind is still open to this product and I’m curious to see how it works if I say, alter my facial cleansing routine slightly, or use it on other areas as the bottle suggests.

Well there you have it glossies. I’ll report back more of my thoughts after a few more tries with this one.

I think there’s room for it in my skin arsenal, I’m just not quite sure where that is yet.

Stay tuned!

xo, Layla
