I have been trying out a few subscription services lately. As you know I wasn’t quite impressed with loosebutton. But I’m very impressed with Julep. You can become a Julep ” maven ” for $19.99/month and you only pay shipping on your first box $3.99 (no subscription fee first time) and after that you don’t pay shipping at all. You also pay significantly less on Julep products than a person who would not subscribe to the maven service.
Julep’s main product is nail polish and they come out with awesome colors every month. But they also carry hair, makeup, and beauty products and tools such as makeup brushes. On the subscription service you can choose which kind of maven box you would like to be that month such as my first box which was Classic with a Twist. But you don’t have to stay Classic with a Twist, next month you could be a Boho Chic etc. You can also choose add on’s to your box each month that are reduced in price for you. This month I chose to add Oxygen Nail Treatment to my box which is a treatment that you paint on your nails that is tinted a nice pink. ” Oxygen technology allows nails to breathe while … a Hexanal formulation conditions and restructures [nails] in just 4 weeks.” You apply it to your nails once or twice a week for stronger nails and so far I love it. The pinkish clear color is perfect and it is already after first use, improving my nails.
In my actual Julep box I received Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum which is filled with Peptides and Collagen that transform your ” dry and damaged ” cuticles and give you “stronger, smoother nails with fewer ridges and less splitting and brittleness” in 2 to 3 weeks. You apply it twice daily to your cuticles for 2 weeks and then once a week to maintain your cuticles. Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum goes great with my 2 new polishes Myrtle which is a brilliant red and Zora which is a glimmering pink-nude color. I also got a couple nail cubes to shape and file my nails with. I am excited for next month’s box already! The serum is very helpful with dry cuticles and I look forward to trying the Myrtle red on my toes. Please see pictures below:
