Julep Maven April 2016

I finally took the plunge and signed up as a Julep Maven, a 5 free nail polish & beauty box subscription. I’ve been wanting to for quite a while, but I haven’t been a fan of any of the recent welcome boxes so I put it off. Finally, there was a deal to get my first box as part of the regular April selections. For new subscribers your first box is free with a 3 month membership, or 50% off for a month to month membership!


Julep
Price:
$19.99 per month with a prepaid 3 month subscription, or $25 month to month.
Shipping: Free!
Skipable: Yes
Customize: You really do have full control of which selections you get. Swap an item, polish color, etc. If you don’t like polish there’s a box for makeup products as well.

The April collection is Brights + White. The polishes released this month are vivid sheer, which means they aren’t opaque but paired with a white base underneath the color will really pop. For Mavens Julep included a free white polish in every box that chose a vivid sheer. Also included was a coupon for the online shop! Use Code APR15 for $15 off $30.

Briggite White Crème $14
This was the free polish Julep included in this month’s box. I’ve been meaning to pick up a white polish so I can make storm trooper nail art (I love Star Wars sorry not sorry) so I was happy that this was included as a freebie.

Delaney Vivid Sheer $14
My monthly polish of choice was this this lovely blue. My collection is full of reds, yellows, pinks and purples, but I was really noticing an absence of blue so I’m content with this polish. It streaked a little, but a few coats took care of that. Over top of the white it really is a vivid blue, and it almost matches my laptop keyboard!

Love Your Bare Face Cleansing Balm $28
This is another April monthly limited edition item. I chose it more out of curiosity than anything, as I’ve never used a product like this one before. This contains grapefruit, rice bran, and camellia oils, as well as pomegranate enzymes. The packaging is quite pretty, the lid screws on and the writing is silver. The bottom twists like a lip balm!

Night Shift Sleeping Mask $34
This had rave reviews on the product page, so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I’ve been searching for a sleep mask so hopefully this works as well as I have been led to believe, I’ll keep you guys in the know on that one in a later post. It is supposed to be great for renewing skin and healing scarring. Once again, Julep has made the product packaging look beautiful!

Overall
I’m happy with this box. Even if I had paid for the first box I would think the value is great! For a non subscriber the box value is $90. The Maven price is $72. I love the customization options, and I adore Julep polish so I will definitely keep this subscription once my three months runs out.

Ion was happy with the packaging, but I had to keep him out of it so he wouldn’t eat all the paper. What’s with this guy trying to eat everything!?

What do you think of Julep and what’s your favorite product this month??

Have a wonderful day,

XOXO C.
