My first Julep Maven - American Beauty

I received my first Julep Maven Box today!

I ordered the American Beauty box.

You can get your first box for $5 using the code WELCOMEMV5 (instead of the usual $20 a month.) that's 75% off!

For $5 it's definitely worth a try.

The contents include:
Julep facial for hands: Glycolic hand scrub full size (retails $32)
Julep facial for hands: Glycolic hand scrub sample packet
Julep SPF 30 hand cream sample packet
Julep nail polish in Drew (hot pink) (retails $14)
Julep nail polish in Alfre (purple taupe) (retails $14)

Not really sure why they gave me a sample packet and a full size of the exfoliator, maybe packaging error?

Everything was packaged well and arrived in one piece.

I have colors similar to Drew so it is not a color I would be drawn towards but I absolutely love Alfre. I'll be using this very soon!

I would not purchase the exfoliating scrub individually and nor the nail polishes because they are so pricey. I have plenty of face exfoliating scrubs at home and I would normally just use that for my hands and body. As for the nail polish, $14 for .27 fl oz/8ml is very little product. Compared to an Essie polish at .5fl/15ml at $8, I would much rather purchase an Essie polish.

However with the discount code, Julep Maven is definitely worth a try!! I do not think I would pay $20 for this box but I think I might try another month to see what I might receive and determine if it is worth continuing.

Note: I skipped the month of November because I didn't like the contents.


They hand written my name on the top of the letter, nice personal touch!
