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.
