The Goods

  1. Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment – Sheer Shimmer. Regular price: $18.00

This treatment smoothes and strengthens nails, and prevents breaking/splitting. The color is a subtle, sheer pink. The first layer was not very noticeable, but after I applied the second layer my nails looked much better. I normally do nothing to my nails… no manicures, no strengthening polish… I just keep them clipped short and natural. This polish was a great for me, because it does add some color but nothing too intense. Always a plus that it keeps my nails healthy and strong as well!

2. Oxygen Nail Therapy – Be Strong. Regular price: $18.00

This is a conditioning treatment that heals and hardens nails. I read the reviews on the Julep website and it seems to be a general consensus that this polish does make your nails stronger, but to use it as a base coat. If you use it alone, it will turn yellow or orange after a few days. So I used this under the Sheer Shimmer treatment from before.

3. Charcoal Konjac Sponge. Regular price: $12.00

I was surprised when I pulled this out and it was already wet, lol! This charcoal sponge is useful for exfoliating, cleansing, and detoxifying. I used it on my face, and was amazed at how well it exfoliated my skin for being so soft! My face felt so smooth afterwards, I am really impressed with this.

4. Curated Welcome Box.

They really had a separate box labeled “Curated Welcome Box”, with a 50% Off coupon inside. Oh, and a poem about being brave and pretty…

I was amused by the size of the Julep Maven box in relation to it’s contents. It was about the size of 2 shoe boxes combined, with a layer of crumpled paper at the bottom, and  4 inches of shredded crinkle filler on top of that. The 2 nail polishes, sponge, and welcome box sat at the top. Just for fun, I put everything in the welcome box and it fit fine, lol.

Value

The value of the items in this month’s box is $48.00. My Maven costs $24.99 a month, or $19.99 with a 3 month subscription. The cost of the products is about double the price of the subscription, so I’d say that’s a huge value! If you do your own nails and keep them freshly painted, this box is a must-have. It saves money AND time to just sign up and have it shipped to you every month.
