My Boho Glam Julep Maven Intro Box!

Hey guys! I have something exciting to show you today! I finally got my first Julep Maven box today!

Julep Maven is a program that's sort of like Birchbox. It's a bit pricier ($20/month), but you get NAIL POLISH! Woo hoo! :D You take a profile quiz, and they sort you into different categories. Mine is Boho Glam! Here's what I got in my intro box:


The packaging was super cute! It came with a letter (with my name hand written in, aww!) welcoming me to the Maven program, along with a card explaining what I got in my box, and a sheet explaining more details about the maven program. The goodies came in a gift bag tied with a pink ribbon.


The goodies! The nail polishes were wrapped up in pink tissue paper. I got the Facial for Hands Glycolic  Scrub and some samples of their hand cream.


The polishes! In my Boho Glam box, I got Olivia, Julep Base Coat, and Miranda!


Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub. Full size! I have to say, this stuff is awesome! It smells SO good, and it left my hands very soft! I will be using this often. :)

For my first ever Julep manicure, I chose Julep Miranda. She dances between jade and seafoam green... a beautiful creme! 2 effortless coats, and they dried very quickly! (I didn't use a fast dry top coat, just to see how long it'd take. They were dry comepletely through in under 15 minutes!)

For $20, I think this is a great deal. Each polish (including the base coat) retails for $14 a piece on Julep.com, and the hand scrub is $32. A great deal if you ask me! Now, the polishes, as great as they are, are a bit pricey... $14, and the bottles are smaller than the average bottle at .27 fl oz. I don't know that I would buy the polishes at full price, but to get this much for $20 a month? I'll take it! Plus, I love having little boxes to open! :)

There were some problems that people were having early on with a coding error in referral links... Many people were upset! I personally sent Julep an email regarding this issue, and the response that I got from Jane was very heartfelt and sweet! I think the way they handled the issue was great, and I hope that they have no problems in the future!
