Julep January 2019 Review
This box doesn’t come with an info sheet due to the customization of the boxes, but this month we did get a letter apologizing for the delay (usually this box arrives in the middle of the month, but mine was delivered on January 26).
We also got an insert with more information on the Boost Your Radiance oil, which was the product that caused the shipping delays.
Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed Facial Oil, 1 oz – Retail Value $36
Even though I have combination skin that leans oily, I love facial oils. I appreciate the extra layer of hydration they can provide, and they’re usually extremely soothing if my sensitive cheeks are acting up. The ingredient list on this oil is fabulous, too- rosehip seed oil, bergamot oil, Vitamin E, and shea butter ethyl esters. I thought this was a great night time oil, but it would probably be a little too heavy for morning use unless you have dry skin. I also love adding drops of facial oils to my moisturizer at night, and another way to use them is by adding a few drops to your face mask to keep them from drying out your skin (if it is a clay mask) and adding extra moisture.
Julep Omelia, Full-Size! Retail Value $14
The polishes released for the month of January weren’t calling my name, so I decided to customize what colors I received. First up is Omelia, a gorgeous eggplant purple glitter with a stardust finish. The stardust finish is similar to the Zoya Pixie Dust finish in that it is a matte, gritty texture. A topcoat takes care of that if you’re looking for shine (like I usually am). I had no issues with the application, and after two coats this was perfectly opaque.
Julep Susanna, Full-Size! Retail Value $14
Susanna is a gold holographic glitter topper that goes absolutely perfect with Omelia. If you really had the dedication you could make this an opaque glitter with a makeup sponge, but honestly, that would be a waste of polish. Susanna has gold chunky glitters with holographic sparkles, and one coat is the perfect amount of glitter for my tastes.
Here are Omelia and Susanna swatched, with no topcoat.
Here is Susanna topping Omelia on every nail, with a top coat on top. I love how sparkly this is, and these are also my school colors!
The Verdict: I think this is my favorite box from Julep yet! I absolutely adore the nail polishes I selected, and I really love that I am able to customize my box each month to ensure I am getting exactly what I want. Trying out the facial oil was fun, too, and I will be using it as part of my nighttime routine during these colder months.
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!
COUPON: Use code POLISHGIFT to get a 12-piece Polish Gift ($160+ Value) with your first box!
Value Breakdown: This box costs $24.99 and I calculated a total value of $64. That means you are paying $14.05 for the facial oil and $5.47 per polish.
