I know I haven’t posted in a while. If you follow me on Instagram, you know why. So I’m jumping back into things with this very late, very easy August 2018 Julep Box Reveal.
August 2018 Julep Maven Box
- Your Cuticles Look Thirsty Fast-Absorbing Cuticle Cream ($20)
- Oxygen Bonding Base Coat ($18)
- Travel Size When Pencil Met Get Eyeliner in Black (n/a)
This box is worth $48, and I’m estimating that the travel eyeliner is worth $4. That’s not something that they really sell, its just a sample. So really $52 total. I paid $19.99 shipped. That’s a 62% savings!
I wasn’t a fan of any of the colors released this month. It’s been so long since I chose, but I think they were all frosty finishes. I’m not a big fan of frosty finishes. They look like Grandma nail polish, and they usually streak. So this month, I chose to get some back ups of products that I use all of the time, and I was able to toss in a travel size of my favorite eyeliner. Just because the new products don’t catch your eye doesn’t mean you have to skip your box (although you could). I always use these opportunities when I’m not feeling the new products to restock my faves.
First, if you don’t have this cuticle cream, you should join the program just for that. Seriously, this is the best cuticle cream around. The cream itself is so nourishing, but its the applicator that does it for me. I’ve had the one in the tub, and the lemon one from Lush, but I never reached for those like I do this. It’s the applicator. It’s a soft rubber shaped like a lip gloss. You can literally toss this in your bag and use it anywhere. The fact that the cream is good is a bonus.
Since I paint my nails often (or try to), I’m always needing base coat. I use a base coat every single time I paint my nails, so I go through this very quickly.
Because I basically chose 2 beauty products this month, I was limited to a very small remainder of products to finish this box. There were some nail decals, a file, buffer blocks. None of those were really interesting to me, but this travel size eyeliner is perfect for my travel bag!
I do the My Maven option where I get to pick what’s in my box (when I take a normal box), because I get to customize it. It takes the stress out of trying to pick a curated box where I love 100% of everything. Plus, I still have my skips, and I don’t have to pay for a box for until March because of pre-payment! If you’d like to sign up for customizable boxes, check out the My Maven program!
