For a little over a year I’ve been receiving a subscription box from Julep. Well, this month will be my last and I wanted to cover the basics of this brand.

A review of the Julep subscription box


Julep is a beauty company that prides itself on being effortless and inspiring. Read more about them here. If you sign up for their monthly subscription service (use my referral link to get a free month!) You get three beauty products.

This month I’m getting the Feels Like Velvet eyeshadow duo, the eyeshadow brush and the Ani glitter matte top coat. You can view/edit your box from the 20th-24th of the month, then it’s sent to you on the 10th of the next month and receive it some days after that.

I didn’t explain it fully, but they have a FAQ page on their site.

On to the reviews!

Nail Polish

The main reason I signed up for this service was to receive new polishes every month. They have loads of colors to choose from (if you edit the color they already chose for you or you can add on to the already curated box).

Overall, their colors are good, some last longer than others and they don’t disappoint.

Their nail care products are also great! The silver tube pictured above is their cuticle gel and gets amazing reviews- which are spot on. After applying the gel 2 a day for about a week, I saw huge results.

A relatively new item they sent me is their nail polish removal packets. These are great for throwing in your purse if you need to remove your nail polish in a hurry, but it takes at least a packet/hand.

Beauty products

In all honesty, I wasn’t super excited about their facial cream or beauty stuff (I’d only ever heard of their nail polish). But their products are AMAZING.

Again they have an assortment of products (eyeshadows, eyeliners, lipsticks powders etc.) and a variety of shades.

Their cleansing tools/products are great also. I wasn’t super sure about the night time face mask they sent me, but now I’m obsessed. Not only does it soften my skin, it smells like roses (ROSES!)

When you sign up, you take their beauty quiz (skin type, makeup colors, etc.) and the information you provide enables them to curate the beauty items you get.

As I said earlier, this is my last month with them and that means you only have a month to use my referral link to get a free box! Here it is again.

Enjoy your Julep beauty box!

    Sorry, what does this have to do with crayons? Looks like fun beauty products though! 😀


    • Crayons are tools to draw with and makeup products are tools to draw on your face! It was also a quote they sent me lol.

  • Wow! Lots of great goodies!

  • I haven’t tried their products, I love those polish colors though!

    • Their beauty products are pretty good!

  • I haven’t heard of there product before!! I should try it out.

  • I was going to try their subscription boxes for the polish, but I don’t paint my nails often enough haha. Good to know their beauty products are really great – I might reconsider getting a subscription!

    • Haha see I was the opposite, now I have wayyyy too many.

  • I used Julep for a long time, it was a lot of fun, but now I need to save money and I’m not as much into nail polish haha. I still kind of hang around and skip most months, I like some of their beauty products still.

    • Haha that’s what I’m planning on doing!
