August 2013 Julep Golden Mystery Box

I just received my Julep Golden Mystery Box. This box was only available in the August Secret Store. The box was on sale for $29.99 which is higher then most Julep mystery boxes however it was suppose to have a retail value between $100 - $200. When I purchased the box there was a promo code floating around so my box ended up costing me $20.99.

I received Version 2 of the mystery box. From what I could tell this was the box that most people had received.

 Below are a list of the items I received:

- Julep January (Tomato red crème)
  Retail $14
- Julep Fina (Sky blue silvery metallic)
  Retail $14
- Julep Alfre (Royal metropolitan purple metallic)
  Retail $14
- Julep Coco (Oxblood crème)
  Retail $14
- Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment
  Retail $18
- Julep Everyday SPF 30 Hand Crème
  Retail $28
- Belina Hair Ties
- Salt Water Taffy (3 pieces)

Total Retail Value: $102

*In my opnion Julep could have done a better job picking out the products for this mystery box. I was not too impressed with it since some of the items sell for less then the maven discounted price. A few items in the box are basically on clearance on Julep's website.

Allure Fall Beauty Box 2013

In late July I placed an order for the Allure Fall Beauty Box. Allure Magazine offers these beauty boxes three times a year (November, April, & July) for $39.99 plus tax and shipping. The total amount you pay is about $54, but you typically get over $300 worth of full-sized products including skincare, hair products, nail polish, and make-up. My box arrived 14 days after I placed my order.

It is definitely one of the most amazing deals around, especially if you already planned to buy two of the items in the box already. I usually pencil this into my calender the moment I find out the date and time of the sale and make sure I'm sitting at my computer at least a few minutes before. Supplies are limited and these boxes sell QUICK, like 7 minutes quick, so get on your computer and refresh refresh refresh! You can purchase up to 5 boxes. The next box is coming out around Thanksgiving. Keep checking back and we will post the date and link for the sale once it is available!

The following products are found in the Fall box:

  • Schick Hydro Silk Razor
  • KMS California Hair Stay
  • RoC Retinol Correxion Cream
  • Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair
  • Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask
  • Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
  • La Roche-Posay Redermic Intensive Anti-Aging Corrective Treatment
  • Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Lotion
  • Pixi Eye Bright Liner
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish
  • Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser & Balm
  • Simple Skin Care Foaming Cleanser
  • Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion
  • Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion
  • Redken All Soft Argan Oil
  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
  • Goldwell Gloss Style Magic Finish Hairspray

The good news is that when I do get settled I have 3 posts to update everyone on. I have a review of the Revlon Total Beautybox, the golden julep mystery box, as well as the August PopSugar box all coming up.
