Julep Maven Unboxing || July 2014


Julep Maven Unboxing - July 2014 || SimpleNailsandBeauty.com

Today I have this month’s Julep Maven unboxing to share with you.  It is a little later in the month than when I would typically like to share my Julep Maven box, but my husband and I just got back from a trip to Washington, so this is the first opportunity I have had to share it with you {we road tripped out to Mt. Rainier and then spent five days hiking and camping at the national park}.

Here is my Julep Maven Unboxing for July 2014:

Julep Maven Subscription Box July 2014

This month was a pretty stellar Maven box for me….needless to say I was more than excited to receive it!

As you may know, with Julep you get to pick and choose what is included in your box each month.  They give you a suggested box based on a profile survey you complete when signing up, but you can change those products to your heart’s content.

For July, I actually chose to keep the box they suggested for me which was the Classic with a Twist box.  I then {of course, because I cannot resist a good deal} chose three add ons.  Add ons are items that Julep offers at a special discount price for that month {but they can only be added on with your Maven box order, you cannot purchase them separately}.  Most of the add ons are items from the other boxes {the other nail polish colors, etc}, but there are also mystery items and other beauty product items that fit within that month’s theme.

The Classic with a Twist box typically includes two of the new nail polish colors {Julep reveals new colors each month} and one full sized beauty product.  The nail polish colors included in my Maven box this month were the “Kelsey” and the “Vicki” and my full sized beauty product was the Bare Body Milk lotion.

I then chose to add on the Before and After special add on set {which included the base coat, top coat, and clean up tool}, another one of the new polish colors for the month called “Lorenzana”, and a Mystery Polish.  The mystery polish ended up being the “Cynthia” color which was a Classic with a Twist option color previously.  It’s gorgeous!

Because I chose three add ons for the month, I was also sent a surprise gift.  It was two nail polishes {a $28 value}!!  I couldn’t believe it.  The colors were “Farrah” and “Alexandra”.

Julep also sent along a couple Tootsie Rolls as a special treat in the box {which I ate while editing this post}!

All in all, I spent $53.96 on this month’s box including all of the add ons.  I received a total of $158 worth of products!!  That is some serious savings, on some seriously great products, my friends.  For instance, I am currently staring at my manicure using Julep polish….I painted my nails on Friday {it is now Tuesday} and there is not a single chip.  You just have to make sure you are pairing your Julep polish with a good base and top coat!

The Products I am Most Excited to Try:

Although I love all of the colors of polish in my Maven box this month, I am actually most excited to try the Bare Body Milk lotion {it smells like a day at the beach, in a good way} and to see how the clean up tool works.

What exactly is a Julep Maven Subscription?

Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish and beauty subscription box. They make all their own products, so subscribers get a good value each month – over $40 retail worth of product for just $24.99 a month.  Plus, as I mentioned above, each month they offer big discounts on select items and special packages that you can add on to your box.

And, if you sign up for 3-months up front, you get a $19.99 per month rate instead!

Each month Julep releases a new collection on the 20th.  This is the date each month that you can decide which box you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month {you earn a skip every 6 months you are a subscriber}.

The Julep Maven subscription box is the perfect way to treat yourself to new nail color and beauty products each month.  I have been a Julep Maven for a few months {I am a Classic with a Twist Maven} and so far absolutely LOVE the products.  The nail polish is some of the best that I have ever used.

Just a quick recap of the perks you get as a Maven subscriber:

  • A fully customizable box of limited-run nail colors and beauty innovations delivered to your door each month
  • $40+ of full-size products in every box for just $19.99 per month when you choose the multi-month payment option (or $24.99 if you chose the monthly payment option)
  • Free shipping and 20% off on julep.com every day

Did you read that last bullet point closely?  That is right, as a Maven you will always receive free shipping and 20% off any additional orders!  Woop, woop!  Also, you can cancel your subscription at anytime.  Julep charges your account on the 24th of each month for your Maven box, so you would just need to cancel before this day of the current month to prevent any further charges.
