I know I said I would not be getting a Destination Mystery box from Julep Maven, but I just could not help myself! I was too intrigued by the concept and the polish descriptions for each city.
The Cost: $24.99, including shipping
The Products: A selection of nail polish and beauty products inspired by one of three cities: Miami, Laguna Beach and The Hamptons. Each box is promised to have a value anywhere between $70 and $200. Read all my Julep Maven reviews here.
I decided to get Laguna Beach, the description just sounded like the perfect summer blend for me!
First thought: I love the colors! Second though: I definitely don’t think I scored a $200 box.
Fiona, electric lime neon cream polish – Value $14
Abbie, sunshine yellow cream – Value $14
Cody, cantaloupe orange cream – Value $14
These colors are perfect for me! I’ve been wearing Fiona on and off since getting the box. At first I thought Abbie was a lot like Charlie, but this one is a much brighter yellow and it really does remind me of sunshine. Charlie is a richer yellow, kind of like just before the sun starts to set.
Glycolic Hand Scrub – Value $23
I love the smell of the hand scrub! I haven’t used a hand scrub in a while, so I was long overdue. Now my hands are baby soft and smell nice. This is definitely a new favorite! Usually, I am not a fan of a company extending its brand to new product lines, but Julep Maven does make really great beauty products that complement their polishes and brand well.
Thoughts: Overall, I am really happy about my Laguna Beach Destination Mystery Box. I love all of the colors and the hand scrub is great! I hope that I can snag a higher value box since this one only comes out to be just $65.
