Good evening loves,
I know it’s almost December but I’ve got to share my November Julep Maven box with you! This month was a great one because I really liked the assortment of curated boxes to choose from, and I got some freebies!
Everything you see in the photo was $54CAN after currency exchange, but roughly $40US (I got add-ons this month). For those of you that don’t know, Julep is a Seattle based nail polish (+makeup+skin) company with a monthly box program which costs $19.99CAN with free shipping-even to Canada! I hate when subscription boxes charge shipping. I’ve honestly tried several subscription boxes including Glymm (a Canadian one that folded), Ipsy, Topbox, Birchbox and a newer one for supplements called WelliBOX but kept going back to Julep.
Basically I ended up cancelling the other boxes at various points in the last few years because I got tired of getting random throw-away products. Yes, some stuff I got was great, but too many of the products were random as hell! I added up the money I was spending on monthly subscription boxes and at one point it was $60 a month!! I decided I’d rather spend that money on stuff I actually want, and I was starting to get overwhelmed by the cluttering sample sized products I was getting. I still have a stockpile from months ago.
I’ve stuck with Julep because you get to preview your monthly box from a selection of FULL SIZED products, you can skip the month if you don’t like your choices, and their points system doesn’t take two years to actually redeem.
So this month I opted for the ‘Classic with Twist’ box which included:
-Polishes ‘Jo’ and ‘Linnea’
I’m on a skincare kick right now so I saw the words “facial milk” and had to try it!
I also opted for some add-ons this month. They are always offered at about half price and you get points towards future freebies.
-Be Strong Nail Therapy
Since I got 3 add-ons they always give you a free gift, so I got a free blue polish as you’ll see below.
I should also mention they include candy every month and this month was a caramel apple lollipop! I would’ve photographed it with everything but my sweet tooth got the best of me.
