Julep Spring Mystery Box

Purchased by Me

I got my Julep Spring Mystery Box!! This was a special spring box that was only offered for a limited amount of time at At this point it is no longer available. The price of the box was $24.99 USD. I received version 1 (there were several versions of this).

What was inside the box:
  • Chocolate Eggs for Easter
  • Nail File 
  • Julep 30 Daylight Defense SPF Hand and Face Lotion
  • Julep One Step Nail Polish Remover Pad 
  • 3 Julep Nail Polishes in Lauren, Camille, and Ashley
I am really pleased with the box. The hand and face lotion alone retails for $28.00 at 

The box arrived REALLY quick for me. I was really pleased with how fast it arrived. I was surprised to see it in my mail box yesterday. 

 I also really love the polishes I received as well in this. 

I have not used the remover pad yet, but I did use the Dalylight Defense. This morning on my way to work I decided to test it out.  Please note, I have only used this on my hands. My face is way too crazy to test anything new out on it right at this moment. I did use it as a hand lotion and I have to say I was pretty impressed. It is not greasy and and my hands felt so soft today. I use a lot of lotions, cremes, oils etc on my hands, so when a product comes along that makes my hands feel softer than they normally do, it gets my attention. 

I also love the fact that it is SPF 30. I don't think any of my hand products have sun protection in them. I know how important this is to many. I like the thought of protecting my hands.

The lotion is listed on the box as a one step solution to beautiful hands, nails and skin. It contains Vitamin E and hydrates the skin and strengthens nails. I haven't used it long enough to confirm the strengthening part, but it has made my hands feel great today. I'm glad I got the box because this is a product I would not normally purchase on my own. 

The lotion is:
  • Paraben and Sulfate Free
  • PABA free
  • Ideal for every day use

I have to admit I got a thrill opening the box not knowing what was inside. The mystery aspect of the box was really fun. Once I opened it, I gasped lol. It's so cold out here today in my part of Missouri, and we are expecting a MAJOR snow storm tonight, so this bright fun Spring box really brightened my day. I love the shredded grass, it was like getting a surprise Easter basket!!!

The nail file is your basic emery board style file. I only use crystal files, so I will pass this on to someone else.The color polishes I got are so nice!  

Lauren is a fun bright Pink. This is totally my shade of pink, and I love it.  It's listed on the as a hot tropical pink. Perfect for Spring and Summer too.

Camilie is not listed on, so this may be Limited Edition. It's a pretty glitter top coat. 

Ashley is also not listed on, so I believe it may be Limited Edition as well. It's a gorgeous copper color and reminds me of a shiny penny. 

I love my new box and I'm please that I ordered it.  I just recently became a Maven so you guys will see more Julep boxes in the future. My first Maven box is on it's way.

If you are a Maven, I would love to here your thoughts on it. Are you satisfied with your purchases? Did you have a nightmare experience with Julep?  I like to hear the negatives too.
Purchased by Me


  1. I got my first julep box last month because it was free and I loved the quality of the products I received. They've got me coming back for more.

    1. I have not gotten my first Monthly Maven Box, so far just this one. I signed up to be a Maven shortly after I ordered this box.

  2. My only complaint with the Mystery boxes is that, since they don't keep a record of what polishes they've previously sent, I often get dupes of polishes I already have from them. This has happened a couple of times for me, but I just used the extras for a giveaway. I do like their products and the Mystery boxes are definitely gin :)

    1. Yes the extras that I get will definitely be part of future giveaways here. I will have to get a couple and see how I feel after that.

  3. Honestly I find julep way over priced. You'd besurprise how fast you use up all the polish. They get goopy half way through. Im a meaven I usually only get the mystery boxes now a days in hopes of getting more polishes. Im not a fan of their other products usually

    1. I totally agree about the price, it's crazy. I will have to try a handful of them and see how it goes. I figured I would love them or hate them, not sure yet.

  4. Julep polishes chip on me...I guess polishes react differently based on body chemistry and julep doesn't like mine! I was real surprised because everyone online says they love the formula. Anyway, I'm loving square hue so far. It's nice not having to choose your colors. It's a mystery box every month :-) and none of the extra products to worry about either.
