We’re moving towards 2012 and it’s all about you, You and YOU! In conjunction with “The Mommy Diet“, how about giving your nails and toes the VIP treatment. We all know that nice looking toes and nails are essential to any little outfit, whether you are dressed up or down (it’s the icing on the cake).
Recently, Julep Maven (a monthly membership program by Julep) sent me an introductory “Classic With a Twist” Maven Box. Although, I’m not a fan of the monthly membership programs out there, with the New Years approaching, I was open to trying out new things.
In general, I usually stay away from nail polishes because of all the toxic chemicals they contain (plus, I hate the smell). However, once I found out that these were free of carcinogens (formaldehyde or formaldehyde resin, toluene and DBP), I had to try them out.
First, the intro box was well packaged in a red box (it’s kind of like that feeling when you get the blue Tiffany box). Not knowing what was in it, brought an element of excitement and surprise (all my inner girlies came out to play).
My box contained two nail polishes, Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub and some samples. The glycolic hand scrub was divine and after giving my hand that much needed facial, it felt like a baby’s bottom.
The two nail polish colors I received were Whitney and Nicole. The colors were not my cup of tea (more-so my mom’s, I personally like Kim and Juliette) but they glided on nicely. Now if Julep can work on getting rid of that smell that all nail polishes seem to have, it would be the perfect polish.
The cost of membership is $19.99 a month and you get over $40 worth of products in each box. The best part of this program is that it’s customizable to your needs.
Every month, you’ll have products curated for your own Sneak Peek Box. If you don’t like what you see, you can request another “shelf pull” (I like this option because unlike some programs, you’re not forced to have something you don’t like, in my case, it would have been the nail colors).
You also have the option to share your Sneak Peek Box with another girlfriend. So let’s say your friend’s birthday is coming up, you can sign into your account and send it as a gift (totally worth it!).
On top of all those benefits, you can skip a month for free and be rewarded with a $15 gift certificate for referring your friends.
So if you want that VIP treatment every month or simply use it to give a VIP treatment to someone else, the membership is definitely worth it.
