All these beauty subscription boxes really tempt me to subscribe to all of them! Getting them in the mail is so exciting :) This post is dedicated to the Julep Maven subscription. Thanks to Justine for tweeting the promo code "SHAREON" to get your first box for $0.01 and free shipping!
The Julep Maven Style Quiz will match you up with a specific style - mine was Classic with a Twist. This subscription is a little different from other boxes since you can see what you'll get for the next month. So if it's not what you want, you can choose to skip that month. I think I rather have this option than not knowing what you'll get and end up being disappointed about your box. On the other hand, the Julep Maven Box is pricier coming up to $20/month vs. the usual $10/month.
Onto what I received!
My box got a bit beat up from its travels but everything inside was in mint condition! The nail polishes were wrapped up in bubble wrap and placed inside a paper bag with tissue paper surrounding the inside of the box. This is great packaging since nail polish bottles can crack very easily via the mail (I've had this happened before). I received in my box:
- Julep "Facial for Hands" Glycolic Hand Scrub
- Julep Nail Vernis in Keira a Deep burgundy
- Julep Nail Vernis in January a Retro, tomato red with a modern shine
- Samples (Purple glitter, Age Defying Hand Brightener, and SPF 30 Hand Cream)
I've heard raves on Julep polishes so I can't wait to try them! I love the unique shape of Julep nail polish bottle. All and all, I was very pleased with the Julep Maven subscription box because of it's unique feature to see your monthly box and the option to skip the month. I also felt the size of the products are very reasonable and worth the $20 since nail polishes here in Canada cost an average of $10 a piece.
Try this out for $0.01 (hopefully the promo still exists)!
Until next time!
