Good Morning Everyone, I have another Julep Mystery Box review for you today. (My last review was of the “medium size” Galaxy Mystery box.) This time I decided to get the largest one, the Ultimate ZigZag box. It had over $120 value for $39.99 (I paid $31.99 with promo code FIRST20) I received “Version 1” and here is what was included:
Beach Tonic: $23
Alaina– a taupe/lavender creme $14
Sienna– a Fine shimmery gold $14
Nellie– a pink fuchsia creme $14
And of course all boxes got Chevron Nail Decals!
TOTAL VALUE: $145
I did a few quick designs with the stickers…it was surprisingly easy! You can either apply them and then add a top coat (like the top right pic) or you can layer another color on top, then remover the sticker like I did in the bottom right photo! Both Nellie and Alaina are very nice formulas that are easy to work with and apply very well in 2 coats.
I was also so happy to get another on of their Top Coats, I am almost out of mine and it is fantastic. When you’re done applying it you can hold it under a 60watt bulb for 2 minutes to harden it even more! The cuticle oil is nice, it smells and feels basically like lavender oil to me. ..(With slightly more viscosity) If you’ve never felt essential oils they are more “dry” than a typical greasy oil feel. It just doesn’t seem as hydrating to me. I just like cuticle balms better!
I also love the Sea Salt spray, it has a very nice fragrance and works pretty well at creating easy natural curls. I sprayed a decent amount (about 20 pumps) to my damp hair, “crunched” it up a bit and then blow dried the roots slightly. When is was dry it looked kind of poofy at the ends of my hair, so I spritzed them with a little more spray to tame the frizz down a bit…
Not to shabby for a quick hair style (I really have no patience or skill for styling hair so I have a feeling this spray and I will become best buddies!)
Over all I WAS kind of disappointed with the box containing a lot of skin care products as opposed to nail polish BUT i’m glad I got to try some new things!
