Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon Code – March 2017
Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish and beauty subscription box. They make all their own products, so subscribers get a good value each month – over $40 retail worth of product for $24.99 a month.
And, if you sign up for 3-months up front, you get the $19.99 rate.
Each month Julep releases a new collection on the 20th, and you can decide which box you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This box came with a fold out sheet that details the beauty item for the month and the new colors launched.
Now, onto the items!
First, Julep usually includes a bonus item like candy in every box! This month it is two nail polish remover pads.
I try to use only acetone-free nail polish remover, but these will be good in a pinch.
Julep Nail Polish in Lara – Value $14
This polish is described as a “shell pink with gold shimmer.”
I always gravitate to subtle pinks and beiges in my nail polish, so I picked this looking for a pale pink with a hint of sparkle.
Unfortunately, I think this polish reads more white than pink on my nails:
It’s still a pretty color, but not what I was expecting and hoping for.
Julep Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops – Retail Value $18
These drops are scented with lavender and ylang ylang, and I love them just for that alone! In addition to making your hands smell lovely, they really do help speed up the drying process.
To use them, let the nail polish dry for one minute, then apply 1-2 drops. (Any excess product helps moisturize cuticles.) I could definitely tell a difference with these drops – I was able to get back to typing immediately without messing up my nails. (I did accidentally bang my hand into my desk and that dinged up a nail, but that’s more on my clumsiness than the drops!)
Julep Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum – Value $28
First, I love this cuticle serum because of the slick pen design. It’s perfect for throwing in your purse and always having on hand anytime you notice your cuticles could use a little help.
(It’s one of those clicky pens that feels like it takes an infinite amount of clicks before the product actually starts emerging!) The formula is a lightweight liquid, so you’re not going to get the same amount of moisture as some of the more intense cuticle treatments I’ve tried, but it dries almost instantly, so it is great for touchups.
And this box also included a coupon for 30% your next purchase.
Verdict: The Ta Da drops were my favorite item this month – I’ll be using them with all nail polish moving forward! The cuticle serum is great, too. The nail polish shade was the only miss for me this month.
