Julep DD Crème snapshot and the results of the Battle of the Facial Moisturizers

I've been quiet for a while, haven't I? Marinating, maybe — since I definitely haven't given up thinking of the things that made me start this blog. ;)

Anyway, I got my June Julep Maven box today and even though the "letter cream" marketing is getting a tad silly (How long will it be before we use up all the letters in the alphabet? Can I get an XYZ cream that will magically fix my car, tailor my clothes, and dust my bookshelves?), I'm pretty interested in seeing how this DD crème compares to my favorite BB creams.

June Julep Maven box (Boho Glam): DD crème, nail color in Lexie (dandelion yellow crème) and Dianna (mint green crème), and some salt water taffy. Om nom nom.
It's supposed to provide anti-aging effects, buildable coverage, and an "ultra-smoothing" finish that minimizes pores and fine lines. If it does those things while matching my skin tone reasonably well, I'll be pretty happy. I'll weigh in once I've tried it. [Update June 8, 2013: I tried it, and the review is here!]

Also, I never did a final write-up on the Battle of the Facial Moisturizers: CeraVe vs. Philosophy, but essentially, I have nothing more to say on the issue than I said in my first report. I kept using it until I got tired of it, but the CeraVe night moisturizer isn't even a pale imitation of Philosophy's Hope in a Jar for me, although the substitution worked for someone else (link opens in a new window).
