Well, I found a coupon code and signed up for another program. This one is called the Julep Maven Program. I've been reading a lot about Julep nail polishes, and have been interested to try, so when I saw a coupon code for $10 off of the normally $19.99 box I couldn't pass it up - $9.99 for 2 nail polishes (the as yet unreleased Alfre and a pretty pink Carrie), Julep Nail Therapy, a full size Julep "Facial For Hands" Glycolic Hand Scrub, as well as a sample of the Scrub and a Cream. It's a retail value of $76, so for $9.99 I'll take it!
What happens is, you sign up, and you do a little short quiz, and they pick the maven box that the quiz deems best suits you. The BEST part about this is that you can change it to your liking lol I did. I messed around with the thing a couple times to get what I wanted, and I'm pretty happy with the selections. When you sign up you can cancel at ANY time or skip the month if you don't like anything or just feel like passing. You also have the option to gift your box that month to a friend!
Here are some shots of how the box arrived and what was inside. I'll be doing separate reviews of the products in the coming week.
So, what do you all think? Worth the retail of $19.99? At first impression, I'll definitely be keeping up with the program for another month, to see how they treat the mavens after the initial launch.
If you're interested in signing up yourself you can click below for a referral code and I'll get $15 toward my next Julep order! Let me know if you DO sign up, they've been having issues with the referrals going through and people getting the credits.
Save $5 on your first order by using the code WELCOMEFB.
The program thus far appears interesting to me. I love trying new beauty items, and I must say I'm happier with my first month as a Julep Maven than I was with my first month of Birchbox.
