February Julep Box

I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed this Julep subscription. 

I’ve loved my Birchbox subscription, and I wasn’t sure I’d love anything as much. I’ve tried Ipsy, Citrus Lane, Bluum, but none have lived up to Birchbox.

Until now.

Anyway this month I got two great lip products, a beautiful purple shade of nail polish, and a piece of candy. I could do without the candy, but it’s a nice little extra if you like that sort of thing.

The lip polishing tool is great. I made my own lip exfoliator once, but I like that this tool doesn’t get your fingers all messy. 

There are things I like about the conditioning treatment, but I really dislike the taste/smell. It’s just not my cup of tea. I love that the applicator is metal. It feels “cooling” on my lips. And after visiting Chicago recently I needed a deep conditioning product for my chapped lips! 

So, while this box may seem small, the products inside are pretty great!

I love both my Birchbox and Julep subscriptions. I received the candy stick in my box, I agree it was a nice treat, but I gave up candy for Lent…. so I won’t be enjoying that for a little while.

I tried Julep based on your blog posts, I have LOVED it! All the products I have received have been great and I absolutely LOVE the nail polish.

I got the same products this month (although a slightly different nail color). I think the lip products have made a BIG difference – my lips were definitely feeling dry/damaged with this nasty winter weather. The one thing I like about Julep is that you can pick which products you want (from a limited selection but, still, you have options) and you can choose not to get a box if you don’t like the options for that month! I wish Birchbox had a similar system. I ended up canceling that subscription because I felt like I was getting a lot of stuff I didn’t use!

Am I the only one who find Julep polishes to be streaky and/or uneven in opaqueness? I tried a free Julep box and ordered a couple extra polishes instead of paying for shipping and was super disappointed in the products I received…in six polishes, I felt one covered my nails evenly without streaks, and it chipped faster than other polishes. 🙁 I’m glad the polishes seem to work for many, I just personally had a pretty opposite experience.

I’m modern beauty also, but didn’t receive a nail color. Did you pay for the nail polish, or was it included in your box?

Thanks,
Donna

I don’t think I added anything extra . . . but maybe I did? I honestly can’t remember!

Sabrina says · 03.08.14

My modern beauty box also came with just the lip products and candy, no nail polish…

Reply
Christa says · 03.07.14

Did you add on any of the products to your monthly subscription or were they all included?

Reply
Kacie Jackson says · 03.07.14

Those boxes look like there wouldn’t be a disappointing month at all, compared to some month’s with my Birchbox. I wish I didn’t have a nail biting problem so I could wear pretty shades like that on my fingernails, so it usually is done for my toes. Thankfully, sandal season is right around the corner! I do, however, love that lip exfoliator and may need to invest – my lips have been so dry this cold winter.

Looks great, what about the review of your birchbox?!

I’ve subscribed to thei box after reading your reviews and I really like it!

Wendy says · 03.07.14

In future posts on Maven boxes could you say if any of the products are add ons? Just curious 🙂 I got the same stuff minus the polish I added on a lip gloss.

Crystal says · 03.08.14

This was my second Maven box. I’ve really enjoyed the two I’ve gotten any husband really enjoyed the candy stick. : ) I’ve ordered 3 nail polishes that were on clearance and can’t wait until they come!

I’m going to need to give Julep a try I think. My Brichboxes lately have been rather disappointing…

I skipped this month, but I wish I hadn’t. I could seriously use some lip treatments as this crazy winter weather has been making mine all flaky!

I currently have a Birchbox subscription and my boyfriend just gifted me Ipsy for our anniversary (so I’m waiting on my first bag), but I have NEVER heard anyone like Birchbox the best until you. I have LOVED my Birchbox so far and have always wondered if the others are that much better or if I just get really lucky with my Birchbox. Thanks for the input, I’ve been thinking I was crazy for loving Birchbox! Just found your blog, can’t wait to start following along!

I am Shana, wants to say a big thank you thank you thank you to Dr Ejemen spell for everything To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one of those ones at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonies of other people at this website and after I talked to Dr Ejemen who answered all my questions and was very nice and sincere about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back. So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with me and never will be and that he didn’t want to speak or see me again, especially since he was talking to this other girl. When I talked to Dr Ejemen about it, he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the ones that was to get him back to me and stay with me and want to marry me.As soon as he started on the spells, my guy came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful for that. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr Ejemen said would happen. He’s always there when you need him,you can contact him via email [email protected]

My name is PEARL and…“My life is back!!! After 14 years of Broken
marriage, my husband left me and our two twins . I felt like my life was
about to end i almost commited suicide, i was emotionally down for a very
long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr odion which i met online. On
one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I was searching
for a good spell caster that can solve my problems. I came across alot of
testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that
he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure
cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop
divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about
a woman called sonia,she testified about how Dr Odion brought back her Ex
lover in less than 7 days and reverse the effect of their little boys
cancer, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr odions e-mail
address. After reading all these,I decided to give Dr odion
a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 3
days, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are
even happier than before. Dr odion is really a gifted man and i will not
stop
publishing him because he is a wonderful man… If you have a problem and
you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your
problems for you. Try Dr odion anytime, he might be the answer to your
problems. Here’s his contact:[email protected] com. Thank you Dr
Odion

I am PANDEV from canada.I never
believe in spells and magic until I
experienced one some times ago and it
really worked for me. I was in love with
this guy and he is in love with me too for
3years and we making preparations to get married but to my surprise,his
parents didn’t want his hand in the
marriage because of the religion
difference. I was about loosing my man
to another lady under the influence of his
parents until I met a spell caster on net that claimed he can help me out.
He
helped me cast a very strong spell that
helped change his parents mind and i
noticed also that my man love for me has
greatly increased. We are happily
married now with kids. People with similar problems can contact the spell
caster on [email protected])
He cast spells for different purposes like
(1) If you want your ex back.
(2) if you always have bad dreams.
(3) You want to be promoted in your office.
(4) You want women/men to run after
you.
(5) If you want a child.
(6) You want to be rich.

Hi Kate!

I love your blog! I love everything I have tried that you have recommended. I have been looking into joining a subscription beauty service and I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews about birchbox. Have you tried glossy box? I have been really wanting to try it, but it’s a little more pricey. I would love to see a review of it compared to the other services.

Thanks!! You are awesome!
