Julep Maven Subscription Box Review/July 2015

Hey!  Its review time again…

Today I will be reviewing my July Julep Maven Box; but first, a little info about the Maven program:

Julep’s Maven program is a customizable monthly subscription box service specializing in nail polish and other nail care items but now have a growing line of body, skincare and cosmetic items as well [some really excellent items, in my opinion]

The cost is:  24.99 per month OR 19.99 a month with a 3 month paid subscription (Become a Maven through my link and your introductory box is free. ($50.00 value)   -There is a luxe version as well in the subscription options category

What you receive:  $40+ worth of polish and product that is completely customizable each month.

Perks:  -After your first Box you can skip a month if you want or need without losing your subscription (see highlighted for all details)  – Add ons; you can add additional items to your box at discounted prices each month and shop in a secret store at a low price when taking your box as well  -Jewels; the rewards program.  You earn them each month you take a box, at anniversaries and when you refer friends.  You can easily redeem them for free boxes and product

The Products:

1. Your cuticles look thirsty cuticle cream: Cost-$20.00 Description-A super-charged mixture of honey, shea butter, vitamin B5, and salicylic acid that hydrates and heals dry, damaged cuticles

2. Oxygen Brightening Nail Treatment: Cost-18.00 Description-A breakthrough nail treatment infused with optical brighteners that hide discoloration, plus lemon extract that, over time, makes your whites whiter and your pinks pinker. Meanwhile, Oxygen Technology delivers oxygen to your nail beds, encouraging strong, healthy growth.

3. Julep ‘Jelly’ Nail Color in ‘Poppy: Cost-14.00 Description: a sheer Chili pepper red polish with Julep’s breakthrough Oxygen Technology powering this fast-drying, long-lasting nail polish to get nails healthy and more beautiful at the same time. Our proprietary 5-free, vegan-friendly formula also includes strengthening Hexanal and antioxidant green coffee extract. You’ll never look at nail polish the same way again.

My Verdict:
lI really liked this cuticle cream and was surprised that my cuticles looked significantly better after one use.  Its very thick and rich but absorbs easily and smells nice.  I will definitely continue using it

It pains me to post this photo b/c my nails are so ugly and discolored from polishing frequently and such but: I think you can see the difference in the shinier, brighter, whiter nail on the bottom.  My best description of this after only one use would be that it is like a ‘toner’ for your nails.  It has a faint purple tint to it similar to that of toning brassiness out of your hair.  Makes sense… Unfortunately, it didn’t have the lasting power I had hoped for.

e

The 3 nails on the bottom have the brightening polish and my pinky is ‘wearing’ the poppy Jelly polish.  I love this color and finish.  This photo is with only one coat and no top coat at all..and its still goin’ strong!

That’s all for now everyone!  I hope you found my Maven review helpful!!
