Julep Maven - My First Box Review

Earlier this week, my very first Julep Maven box arrived at my door. I was so excited I almost died.

The box contained 3 nail colours, a glycol hand scrub, a foot cream, a guide to julep products, and a coupon for 50% off my next order. Check out what I received below:

I instantly fell in love with the packaging for Julep nail polish. One side of each bottle is painted black with a window for viewing the colour more accurately, and on top of each bottle is a "swatch me" sticker for those of us who store our polish horizontally. I've never seen features like these on polish bottles- in love.

The three colours I received in this box were:

Martha - Classic with a Twist: I'm absolutely in love with this colour. Light pinks are straight up my alley.
Annie - Bombshell: I actually already have a China Glaze colour very similar to this. It's not my favourite.
Octavia - Classic with a Twist: I may find a way to wear this colour this winter, but for now I'm not in to it.

I love the Julep polish brush. It's flat so the application is smooth. These polishes also seem very strong and dry fairly quickly. Time will tell if they beat out my current favourite brand - China Glaze.

I don't care much for the hand scrub. I've never been one to care whether or not my hands are soft. I'll continue using it, but would probably never purchase this product on its own.

On the other hand, I'm in love with the pedi creme. It smells ah-mazing, is very hydrating, and doesn't feel oily. I would definitely purchase it again.

My favourite thing about these products is again the packaging. When looking at the bottles, you would assume that the cap twists off, but it doesn't. When twisted, a small hole in the bottom opens up to allow you to dispense the product.


Overall, I'm extremely impressed with Julep Maven. This box only cost me $2.99 in shipping (your first box is free!) and the products did not disappoint. I can't wait for next month.
