Today I am going to review my first Julep Maven Box (which I did a preview HERE). I am also hosting a Julep Maven Box Giveaway which YOU get to CHOOSE which Julep Maven Box you want! So here we go!

What is Julep Maven Box?

Basically Julep Maven is the nail polish version of beauty boxes like Glossy Box. The difference is that Julep is focused entirely on pedi/mani products. First you take a survey so that Julep can determines your style, then they will send you a Julep Maven Box according to your style profile. Here are the things I love about Julep Maven Box which is different from other beauty boxes:
  • Peek and skip: You can preview the item in the next month box and you can decide to skip that month if you don't like! I really like this option because you won't get forced to buy something you don't like. This is the only beauty box I know that allows you to peek and skip!
  • Guaranteed value in box: With Julep Maven Box, you are guaranteed a box packed with full size items that's worth at least $40.
  • No strings attached: You can change your style profile anytime to change the type of box you get. You can also cancel your subscription at anytime
  • Other savings: Once you subscribed to their Julep Maven Box, you enjoy 20% off all other Juelp products and free shipping
For more info check out the FAQ section of their website.

The box I picked is "Classic with a Twist". It comes with 2 nail polishes, a pedi cream, and 2 toe separators.

The Nail Polish

The colors I got are Rose and Robin. Rose is a hot pink color (doesn't show very well in my pictures) and Robin is very close the to Tiffany Blue. Overall I love these 2 colors and they actually work very well together. I am also impressed with the quality of the nail polish. I am surprised just one coat is enough as it has a thick consistency. Overall I give the nail polish a 4/5.

"The Best Pedi Creme Ever!"

That's the name of this pedi cream and it claims to exfoliate and moisturize your feet. I have been using this for a week and so far I found it pretty moisturizing, but I won't call this the best pedi creme ever until I've tried all the pedi creams in the world! lolz. If you don't like a pedi cream, you can always choose the box that comes with 2 nail polishes instead of 2 and forfeit the cream. Overall I give this pedi cream 4/5 as well.

The Toe Separator 

This is a free gift that's not part of my box monthly content. Honestly I think this separater is a bit  flimsy. However it does the job and I got it for free so I can't complain! I give this 3.5/5.

I love the Julep Maven Box! The only thing I'm not too happy is the price which costs $19.99 including shipping. It's a bit steep I think for 3 items. However I have good news for you! Now you can get your first box for just 1 PENNY! Yes just 1 PENNY!! Here's the deal
Honestly I think for 1 penny it's definitely a STEAL! Try out the first box for a penny and see if you like it before continuing your subscription. For 1 penny I give this 5/5 overall; for full price I give this 4/5.
