Julep March Mystery Box


I have been waiting for a long time for the ‘Easter’ Mystery Box and I finally got it today! Okay, i am disappointed like many others who got the Easter mystery box.



Unlike the previous boxes I have gotten, this ‘open-top’ box came inside of a package box with tons of tissue paper around Otto ensure that nothing breaks. I am not sure how necessary this was since they bubble wrap each polish already, but the thought was nice?

This box included 4 nail polish, 3 chocolate eggs, 1 nail polish removal pad, 1 mascara, 1 nail filer(buffer) and 3 hair bands, I saw that someone’s box included 6+ colors so I assumed that mine will have similar numbers of polish. But after a quick research, I learned that most of the boxes contained 3-4 polish with exception of very small portion.


These are Camille, Portia, Claire, and Parker, from left from right.

The chocolates were crushed and deformed, and were white, and ashy, so I think they were old. Actually, it didn’t taste good, which is a bummer because the chocolates from February were quite okay. And this is my third mascara from Julep. I usually feel lots of love from Julep boxes but I don’t know about this one.

This is my second time getting a mystery box for myself, but I was expecting great things because my first mystery box had 6 nail polishes and a foot scrub, and mystery box costed only $20. It was so good and so generous so perhaps I was expecting too much. Below is a bad photo of some of content.


So in conclusion, I will be skipping April maven box. I wanted an bright blue, and I got it through this box, and I do think even $20 for nail polish every month is… I should be more thrifty and wise about my money.


Review of Julep’s Rock Star Hand Creme


I got Julep March’s maven Box unintentionally, but might as well try the product and write reviews for it, right? The box came with two nail polish colors, a lip balm, and hand lotion.


This is a review about just the lotion. I didn’t get to try the nail polish colors and the lip balm yet! (I am terribly late in trying the nail colors. I put on Laura, from February box last week.) but there will be reviews about those later.


And here is the box and the lotion.


The lotion smells nice! It kind of gives a Victoria Secret lotion feel, but nicer. My hand feels nice, too, with this lotion on. It doesn’t feel great (like they claim) but I am not sure how fast the lotion absorbs into my skin. Some of the ingredients are Shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E and other ingredients.

Now, I do find myself comparing this lotion to Lush’s Creme Anglaise, which I am currently using. It might not be a fair comparison since the other lotion is more than double the price. But Rock Star is a okay lotion by itself.

One thing Julep marked especially is the turn-click ‘cap’ that isn’t a cap but dispenser(?) where the lotion comes out.


The idea is interesting. I think they wanted to use something that will make the act of squeezing lotion less messy. It took a while to figure out how to actually use it. It’s not bad, and it’s interesting, but I don’t think it’s an actual improvement from how other lotion bottles are…
