So with Christmas approaching, I’ve been seeing a lot of ads for subscription boxes. If you’re deciding on one for yourself or someone else, this may help! I’ve tried a couple of subscription services but so far Julep is my favourite. And Julep is now at Sephora (!!!) which is a huge bonus because you really get your money’s worth if you’re a Maven. Sephora sells Julep polishes for $16 each while a regular monthly box will ship to you for $19.99 with at least 2 or three polishes or products!
Why I love Julep:
-They do not test on animals nor do they have a third party conduct animal testing
-Their polishes are “4-free”, meaning free of 4 major toxic chemicals commonly found in many big brand names, such as formaldehyde and toluene
-They support women’s organizations such as the Malala Fund
-The products are of great quality and the box is amazing value
-They ship for FREE to Canada!
So every month on the 20th they have the monthly box reveal, where based on your personal profile, you will have a monthly boxed selected. For example, you may be a “Modern Beauty” or a “Bombshell”. If you do not like the selection chosen for you, you can select “try a new style” and chose from all other boxes offered that month. There are usually around 10 different boxes to choose from! Also, if nothing suits you, you can skip the month and you will not be charged. It is also important that you know they don’t only have nail polish, they have makeup and skin care as well!
The packaging is really adorable as well and they usually include little candies as a bonus. I have a sweet tooth so I’m all for this. Overall I’m very pleased with all my Julep products (I’ve been a Maven since July), I have a good variety and love my subscription!
About the Secret Store:
Yes, they have a secret online store. It is for Mavens only and around 3 days after the Maven box window closes, the secret store opens will all sorts of fabulous deals! You can get sets or single polishes and products at a very discounted rate. They also offer “Mystery” boxes which can be very worth it, but you’re taking a chance. The secret store is going to be crazy this month as the site has the Black Friday sale coming up, so there will be even more Maven exclusive discounts to be had!
