I was getting frustrated with Julep because I ordered this box on the 16th of December and had to call to find out why it wasn't shipped 3 times and had to wait almost a month for it to get to me. However, I am so pleased with the contents of the box, that I guess I can say it was worth the wait. Okay, so here's what was inside:

Julep Jodie, Charlotte and Carrie. Two coats of each on a color wheel.

I was really happy with the 3 colors they gave me! The are all new to my Julep collection and all very pretty. They also sent me bottles of their base and top coat. Yay! I was excited about the lipgloss at first but it's too light for me and also, for some odd reason, it made a red rash around my lips. Nothing serious, but still odd. I love their hand scrub and lotion so those were a score. I was also happy to get my first crystal nail file, my first set of nail appliques, and I get to try out their cuticle oil. I have a lot of cuticle oil, but I'm starting to collect ones that have different fragrances so I can use whatever I'm in the mood for. The Julep Cuticle Oil smells wonderful!!! It is very heavily scented and the roller ball applicator design is unlike any of my other oils.

So what do you think?? Did you order a box? I think I made out pretty well. This wasn't the largest box I saw posted, but it certainly wasn't the smallest either. So I'm happy with this. I love getting my monthly Maven boxes and this Mystery Box was a super fun way to spoil myself a little for Christmas. I could hardly wait to get it, which is why I was irritated at Julep for making me wait so long when I was one of the first customers to jump on this deal.

If you want to check Julep out, or would like to become a Julep Maven, here is a link for you to go to. They  are running a special where you can get your first month for only $5. Simply take the Maven Quiz and enter the code "MAVEN5" at checkout. There's no obligation to continue and you have the option to change boxes if you don't like the style chosen for you, and you can skip months if you don't want to be charged for a box at all. So if you haven't tried it yet, $5 is certainly worth it in my opinion. Here's the link:


  1. Great box you got! Worth the wait!
    Its a pitty i still cant have it! =)

  2. I wish I had broken down and purchased one!

  3. Yeah, I know I would have regretted it if I hadn't bought one. So I bit the bullet.
