Julep Maven July Box Review

Don't forget to enter my Blush Beauty Mystery Box giveaway while you're here!! :)

Oh, Julep.... Just when I think I can't POSSIBLY use more nail polishes, you put out a box like this one and I can't give you up.... 

Julep Maven July subscription box, first looks:

How pretty is this whole presentation?? I LOVE the California Coast theme and the sandy California vibe of the tissue paper and packaging. It captures Cali perfectly!! The little square card is a quote from Isak Dinesen: "The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea."

I opted to receive the box for my Boho Glam profile this month for a couple of reasons: the muted polishes looked so fresh and fun and I am SO excited to try the body oil!! Here's a breakdown of what was included:

Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil ($23): this is a blend of "lightweight yet nourishing" oils that is misted on post-shower. If you read my June Empties post, you know that I have a bit of a lotion obsession, so this is something I was so excited to get my hands on!! :) The smell is really beachy, fresh and clean and the texture it leaves has a little gleam without feeling too oily or greasy! Anxious to work through the bottle and see if I LOVE it!! 

Green Tea Blotting Papers ($5?): these are a bonus item and not available on the website! I'll throw these in my bag to use once my Tatcha papers from the April PopSugar box are gone!

And the polishes! 

Julep Karen ($14): Peach bellini frost, a gorgeous seashell color that is a fresh addition to our massive polish collection!

Julep Faye ($14): Liquid bronze shimmer, looks like dark wet sand! Will be so pretty with a tan! :)

Julep Fireworks ($14): Sparkle top coat, added on to box for $5. A massive hit! It's our current nails of the week!

So altogether, the July box had a value of $56 and cost $25 with my monthly subscription. I didn't include Fireworks in the calculations since I opted to add it on to the regular box (it was a $5 charge). I'm super excited about the products this month!! 

If you would like to try Julep, please use my referral links in this post and use code FREEBOX or FREEMAVEN to get your first box for only $4 then cancel anytime! It's been super fun!! :D
