Julep Maven April Box

Most Julep Mavens get pretty excited to check the mail around the first of each month. I am not an exception to this rule.  Julep usually gets my box to me so quickly, especially since they are also in Washington, like me, so the box does not have to travel so far. I actually got my box on Friday, but I was waiting for my add on that came today before I did my review. This month I was really excited becuase not only were the colors awesome, but Julep added a couple new additions to  the Julep collection, Dry Shampoo and Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum.  And they added the Mighty Nail &Cuticle Serum into their line of products.

Julep’s April theme was The Brights, and bright they were. I really did love the whole collection. However, I decided to just stick with my Classic with a Twist Box with the add on of the Dry Shampoo, since my whole box and the add on was free this month with using my Jules this month.  I secretly was hoping I might get a Golden Box, haha, wishful thinking.

April's  Classic with a Twist Box

The two polish colors in this box were Jackie and Avery.

These two colors were my favorite out the Maven box choices this month. 

Next in the box was

Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum

What it is:
A nail serum with groundbreaking protein-peptide technology that strengthens nails and cuticles. 

What it does:
The Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum is the first nail serum to use ground-breaking protein-peptide technology to transform dry and damaged cuticles almost overnight. Peptides are super-charged amino acids that support your body’s natural production of keratin (for your nails) and collagen (for your cuticles). Plus, get visibly stronger, smoother nails with fewer ridges and less splitting and brittleness in only two to three weeks. 

The Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum sells for $22, so with this alone the entire box was paid for. Whoo hoo, way to go Julep. They really know how to treat their Julep Mavens.

Last my add on

Julep Invisible Dry Shampoo

This is going to be great for those work days that I sleep in, and need a hair pick me up before I leave.  I have never used a dry shampoo, but have been wanting to try it out, so I am excited to give it a shot.

Again Julep never lets me down, and I love all the colors. I am just kicking myself for not going in on the full collection of The Brights. I guess I have next month, and the Secret Store!

If you are interested in seeing more Julep Maven Boxes you can see them HERE.  If you are also looking at becoming a Julep Maven I would highly recommend it. You can always opt out on months you do not want to get a box, however, I will say it is a hard thing to each month, as Julep always has great colors.  Make sure to use Promo Code JULEPVIP, and you can get your first box for a penny. You can sign up HERE.
Until next time
Stay Tickled Pink,


  1. I am still waiting on my Boho Glam box which suppose to be here on Monday, I also wish I could of got the whole collection this month but it just wasn't in my budget this month but I did get lucky to get one of the boxes, my BF said he would buy me a couple more boxes when they hit the Julep store especially the one with the dry shampoo inside, but I always hate doing that too because for the price for two boxes which is $40 I could just save up until the 20th of next month to get the entire collection for $10 more, but I can't miss out on the dry shampoo, really want to try it, I have a feeling when the boxes hit the store that the one with the products inside will sell rather quickly, thank you for the review.

    1. How was your box? I just love Julep. I am already looking forward to the next month's box. Were you able to get anything out of the secret store? I was a good girl and resisted the temptation! An update on the dry shampoo, it works great. I highly recommend it. It is awesome for those days you just want to sleep in, haha.

  2. Hmmm, I wonder if the dry shampoo is good. Give us an update when you get a chance! :)

    1. I used the dry shampoo today. It seems to work great. I have seen some other reviews about the shampoo coming out white, but mine is perfectly clear. I think I might post a before and after sometime as well.
