Over the past year, I’ve become a bit of a subscription box addict. It all started with Birchbox, then Stitchfix and now the Julep Maven box.
Snail mail is my favorite kind and the anticipation of receiving a box full of surprise goodies each month is so hard for me to turn down. I hadn’t heard of Julep until recently when a couple of the fashion blogs I follow started mentioning it. Then, via creepy Google advertising (simultaneously great and stalkerish) their ads kept popping up several times per day and it turns out that I’m a marketers dream… because I took their online quiz and ended up as “Classic with a Twist”. I clicked through to see the other options and ended up ordering the originally suggested box.
Taking a sneak peek into other bloggers monthly boxes is something I love, so I thought I’d share mine. After ordering, the box came a few days later… with good packaging I might add.
This month, there were two nail polishes:
A cuticle serum and nail buffing blocks.
There was a free code: FREEBOX (feel free to try it and see if it’s still working), so I only had to pay the $3.99 in shipping (what’s the harm in that). I’ve painted my nails two different times with each of the colors and have loved the consistency and color of the polish. The only down-side I’ve come across is that the bottles tip easily since they’re designed to be so slender.
Also, I didn’t love the cuticle serum… but you win some you lose some.
If you’re curious, I’d say it’s absolutely worth the $3.99 to try it out and, honestly, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for February. To sign up for Julep (or to browse around their site, you can click here!
