Julep New Year Mystery Box 4

When I saw that Julep was offering a New Year's Mystery Box for $19.99 and free shipping, I decided to give it a try.  It's always a bit of a risk with mystery boxes because you don't know what you will get, but I am pleased with the items I received.  The box arrived much faster than I had expected, too.


When I examined the goodies inside the mystery box, I was very pleased.  The Pedi Creme ($22, on sale for $8) smells light and fresh and I do notice that my feet are softer after using it for a few nights with fuzzy socks.

Julep's Boho Glam Lengthening Mascara ($24, on sale for $10) goes on smoothly and is not flaky.  I'm honestly not sure that I would buy this instead of my regular mascara, but it's a great addition to my make up bag since I am constantly refreshing my mascara.

Mystery Box #4 had 5 fabulous nail polishes that retail for $14 each!  Dendrie is a shiny silver color.  Part of the Trina Turk '12 collection, Annie is a blue polish that is pretty for my toes.  Lauren is a standard pink shade and Cindy is a green sparkle polish.  The additional sparkle glitter polish must be a special edition because I cannot find it on the Julep website.

As an extra treat, I received 3 nail polish remover pads, a nail file, and age defying hand brightener.


Although I wouldn't have purchased all of these shades in a store, they're all pretty and are something that the minnies or I can wear.  With a retail value of  around $120, I think that $19.99 with free shipping was a steal for Mystery Box #4!

Have you ever purchased a monthly beauty box or mystery box?  How did you like the experience?  Did you like the products that were sent to you?

  2. I received a PopSugar box and was pleased with the contents--specialty teas, Bodum mugs, a "repair" kit for fashion / beauty emergencies, and more.

  3. I just signed up for Julep, and I can't wait for my first box to arrive next month! I do get Birchbox each month, does that count as a mystery box?!
