Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon Code – March 2018
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 items 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).

Now, on to the items!
Julep Nail Polish in Yvonne – Retail Value $14
This shade is described as a “Moonbeam Matte Shimmer,” and I’d say it reads as light pink in certain lighting.

Julep Nail Polish in Jesslyn – Retail Value $14
This is a honey gold matte shimmer.
Here are the shades on:
The matte shimmer polish is pretty amazing – you get the soft matte finish, but the shimmer still catches the light. And some matte-finish nail polishes can have a chalky finish, but this finish is smooth.
I found that these formulas took a little longer to dry than the standard Julep creme or shimmer polish, and I needed two coats for full coverage.
Julep Dream Big Nightly Renewal – Retail Value $36
This skincare stick is designed to be both your serum and moisturizer in one. I LOVE the application. You apply the stick directly to your face then massage in with fingers.
The formula is paraben and fragrance free, and it felt gentle on my skin. Since it’s a balm, it heats up at contact with your skin, but the serum doesn’t absorb quickly. (Not a problem for nighttime skincare.)
Lastly, Julep always includes a tiny extra like a piece of candy, nail stickers, etc. This month it’s a sheet of shamrock nail decals – perfect for March!
Verdict: As usual, I’m happy with all my choices this month. The serum stick is a great skincare discovery for me (it seems perfect for travel, too), and I’m liking the matte shimmer polishes, too.
I highly recommend this subscription if you love nail polish and/or you like having control over your beauty box items! (And I also recommend doing the 3-month subscription at $19.99 a month for better savings!)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. You have to sign up by the 20th to get the next month’s box. Then on the 24th, you’ll be able to sign into your Julep Maven account and select the items you want for your box!
