I couldn't avoid the temptation of another Julep mystery box so I ended up ordering one last week. It arrived on Monday. I did get one of the small boxes this time around. The first mystery box I ordered I got lucky and got the big box that had several products and a $120 gift certificate. I used a portion of that gift certificate to order this second box, so I'm not really out anything. The mystery box was $19.99 and you are guaranteed at least $60 worth of product and up to $200. Mine is the minimum of $60.00.
I received three polishes and their fast dry top coat. I'm not a big fan of their top coat, though, and I already own January. Gayle and Amy are new to my collection. Even though I already own January, I'm glad I didn't get an ugly color. Some of the colors in other boxes didn't appeal to me.
In total I received another of their daylight defense lip balms with SPF (you remember, the one that smells like a delicious peppermint patty but tastes like poison... yup.), fast dry top coat, three polishes, and an emery board. I know a lot of people don't like this nail file because it is a cheapy one, but I actually really like them. I have three now. The grit on one side is very, very fine which I enjoy because it gives a smoother edge when filing. It doesn't snag and leave sharp little chunks like some other cheap ones can.
All in all, nothing fabulous, but that is part of the game in playing when ordering a mystery box. You are taking a bargain and hoping you'll get one of the big boxes. I don't think I'll be ordering another mystery box for a while. The more months I keep my subscription with them, the higher the chance of me getting duplicates when I order the mystery box.
