I received my Julep Maven box today!! Woo Hoo! If you are not familiar with the program it is pretty much a beauty of the month club focused around nail care. When you sign up you take a beauty quiz and are assigned a profile, mine is American Beauty. Then each month you will receive a custom box based on your profile. Before the box is sent you receive a preview email showing you what your upcoming box will contain. If you do not like what they are sending you, you can request a new pull, skip the month, send the box to someone as a gift, or cancel all together. All for $19.99! Not a bad deal. Below I will show you what was in my first box.
Inside the box was a Julep bag with a cute little ribbon.
In the bag was a card describing in detail what was contained in the box.
And a hand signed welcome letter from the CEO/ Founder Jane Park! How sweet!
Everything came individually wrapped. I received Alfre a new unreleased fall '11 color ($14 value), Cameron; a bright pink ($14 value), Julep Nail Therapy ($16 value), and Julep "Facial for Hands" Glycolic Scrub ($32 value). So all in all I received $76 worth or product for $4.99 ( I used a coupon code for $15 off, I am not sure if it still works.. and I can't seem to find it. If I do I will post an update)
Here is Alfre on my sister's nails. It is a purple grey shimmer/ pearlish polish. I really like it for fall.
Here is Alfre on the left and Cameron on the right. Both nice colors, Cameron is a little too bright pink for me though.
The bottle has a unique design, but I feel that I am going to tip them over when I am doing my nails. I was also a little disappointed in the size of them. OPI and China Glaze come in .5oz bottles, this was only .27oz pretty much half. So for the price I am not sure that buying the bottles on an individual basis would be for me. The Julep Maven program is great because I can get $40 or more worth of product and you are only charged $20!
If you want to check it out click here Julep Maven Sign up, and I will get a referral credit! Please leave me a comment or send me an email if you do sign up through the link so I am able to keep track. Also, if you do sign up you will receive a referral link as well.
Another bonus of the program is you also receive a discount code for 20% off of ALL of your future purchases and you also receive free shipping!!! If you have any questions they also have a FAQ on the website. All in all I think the Julep Maven program is great and since you can skip a month or cancel at anytime there is really no risk involved.
Here is my preview email for my September box. I am really excited about this box in general, the polish looks so pretty, the cuticle oil (my cuticles are in rough shape), and the hand cream is the next step in their regimen after the Glycolic Hand Scrub. I will post the details of this box once I receive it, hopefully by the end of next week.
